UK-based metallers, VENOM INC., will kick off their long-anticipated North American tour tomorrow in Atlanta, Georgia. Initially slated to take place this past Fall but postponed, the rescheduled takeover will raze nearly two dozen cities through January 28th coming to a close in Fort Worth, Texas. Support will be provided by American death metal legion, Necrophagia.
VENOM INC. features original Venom members guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray with former Venom bassist/vocalist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan. The band made their live debut as VENOM INC. in April 2015 at the Keep It True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany, performing a full set of Venom classics and played to over 30,000 people at Heavy Montreal last August. Dolan and Dunn have spent the last few years collaborating in M:Pire Of Evil, who released their latest full-length, Crucified, in May 2013. VENOM INC. took to the streets early this past Fall on the lengthy Iron And Steel European Tour before closing the year with a Latin American live infiltration. This month, North America will finally get its venomous baptism with the band again performing a full set of Venom’s most revered tunes.
Necrophagia will be touring in support of their latest full-length WhiteWorm Cathedral out now via Season Of Mist. Formed in 1983, Necrophagia was one of the very first death metal bands in the United States. Often considered pioneers of the “horror metal” genre, the band gained notoriety after cutting their teeth in the underground by staging ambitious live shows, chock full of blood, guts and gore. Necrophagia earned world-wide acclaim for the 1998 genre-defining Holocausto de la Morte full-length featuring Pantera frontman Philip H. Anselmo. Following this landmark album, Necrophagia went on to release several well-received full lengths and EPs.
