Hailed by fans and critics alike, For His Satanic Majesty’s Glory is a transmigration through chaotic boundaries never before unveiled and an imposing assault of Satanic doom/punk/black metal on the senses, composed and recorded in complete adversarial ritual.

“For His Satanic Majesty’s Glory has a big guitar and bass sound to go along with Cronos-like vocals and a mid-paced gallop. The result is a good throwback album that old hands such as me will undoubtedly enjoy as I’m greatly reminded of the glory days of Venom’s first three albums….” – About.Com
