About VENOM INC: In 2015, a chance encounter brought an offer to Tony Dolan (vocals, bass) to reform the line-up of Venom that had recorded the classic Prime Evil album and solid follow-up albums. These classics kept the band very much alive during the onslaught of Grunge and Brit Pop that destroyed all but the most-hardy in the early 90’s. Dolan seized the opportunity to continue the Venom legacy that had begun when current bandmates Jeff Dunn (aka Mantas on guitar), along with Tony Bray (Abaddon, drums), formed the original band in 1979 and brought the world extreme metal in the form of the Welcome To Hell and Black Metal albums. Topped off in the beginning by the voice of Clive “Jesus Christ” Archer (and later by Cronos and “The Demolition Man” Tony Dolan), Venom was – and still is – a force of nature. VENOM INC upholds the true intention of Venom that began in 1979, and vows to rekindle the original spirit that was lost over the years. For every single Legionnaire from Venom’s Legions and new fans alike, VENOM INC will continue to grow and perform the classics with heart, soul and true meaning.
VENOM INC is:
Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, Anthony “Abaddon” Bray and Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan
