||Newcastle, England's Venom
is back with vengeance on their 13th release. It's Venom with a 90's
guitar crunch which gives them a little more of an edge. I like this
album quite a bit. "Resurrection" is the band's first CD
since "Cast In Stone" that came out in 1997, and its well
worth the wait. All the songs have their good parts. My favorite songs
on this CD include "War Against Christ (All around good song),"
"Pain (This song gets you going, MOSH!!)," "Firelight
(Catchy song that puts you in a groove)," and "Black Flame
Of Satan (My favorite, three words, "Heavy, Catchy Riffs")."
There are 14 songs on this CD that nearly an hour long. This is long
enough to get a mosh pit going in your home or where ever you are
while you listen to this CD. The last song has a little different
sound to it then the rest of the songs. It almost has an alternative
or hard rock sound to it. Its nice to see that Venom is experimenting,
lets just home they don't continue on that way. SPV records must be
happy to have these metal gods on their label. They have been around
for 21 years, and "Resurrections" is their proof they can
still be creative after all those years. I hope they do a tour in
the United States so I can witness these legends. Look for this album
on June 6th in the U.S.
