Venom Early Band Photo

November 1, 2016 marked the 34th anniversary of one of the most important records in the history of extreme music. Way back in 1982, a band from Newcastle, England unleashed their second album on an unsuspecting public and things would never be the same for heavy metal. The band was Venom and the album was called Black Metal.

It was a landmark release in many respects in that it would serve as the aesthetic blueprint for a variety of extreme genres such as thrash, death metal, and, of course, black metal. From a musical standpoint the record has more in common with thrash than modern black metal. Regardless, many people believe it to be the seed from which all that would follow across the spectrum of extreme metal was germinated.

In celebration of this anniversary, we present the album in its entirety. Check it out and judge for yourself.
