Debut Full-Length Album, Animus, Out Now via Prosthetic Records
Coming off their Metal Hammer/Golden Gods “Best New Band” award, UK death metal outfit VENOM PRISON premiered their new video, “Perpetrator Emasculation”, with Decibel Magazine.
The track is taken from their critically acclaimed debut full length, Animus, out now. The video was shot at a house show by Ashlea Bea Photography in the band’s hometown. VENOM PRISON frontwoman, Larissa, described the need for house shows, explaining they are a vital part in the music community:
“VENOM PRISON grew from a grass roots hardcore scene, and have no intention of forgetting where we have come from. VP recently decided to do a home town show at a secret location and as you can see, it was intense. Living in a time where music venues close down or just aren’t affordable for underground promoters and bands, supporting your local scene is very important as it helps expanding musical boundaries and help to evolve the bands involved in it. Hopefully this footage from “Perpetrator Emasculation” spreads word that shows like this are going on all over the world in DIY spaces.”
As one of the most talked about bands in the UK, in addition to winning the Golden God award, VENOM PRISON has been declared “your new favorite band” by British mainstay metal mag, Kerrang! and recently was given the prestigious 5K rating for their incendiary live performance at this year’s Download festival.
Larissa comments on their tumultuous year: “This year has been relentless for us so far. VENOM PRISON have had all sorts happening recently including Download Festival and winning Best Newcomer award at the Golden Gods. It reflects everything that goes into making this happen because this band genuinely works continuously.”
The band has spent the last year touring in support of Animus, having played with Gorguts, Darkest Hour, Suicide Silence, Aversions Crown and many more. Filled to the brim with “pummeling riffs and a vicious vocal delivery” (Decibel), Animus is 10 tracks of venomous brutality that tackle subjects as social Darwinism, misogyny, rape culture and the rejection of God and religion.
