UK’s VENOM PRISON announces the release of their new full-length album Erebos out worldwide on February 4th 2022.
The band have also just shared the iconic cover artwork for the forthcoming album, which was created by renowned artist Eliran Kantor. Check out the artwork below and stay tuned for more news about new music.
Being able to work with our dear friend Eliran on another piece of art for VENOM PRISON has been exciting as always. Kantor knows the band perfectly well to capture our music and poetry into a visual masterpiece every single time. ‘Erebos’ was a personal one for both Eliran Kantor and ourselves.
This artwork captures the moment a young person dies inside as they are surrounded by horror. In the moment their innocence is lost and desensitisation will from now on fuel the repetition of the cycle of violence in their life.
This is ‘Erebos’ the one born from chaos,” states VENOM PRISON. VENOM PRISON has carved an uncompromising space for themselves over the course of two full-length albums, Animus (2016) and Samsara (2019), and with 2020’s Primeval, which reinvigorated the band’s earlier EP’s with two new tracks.
What began as an explosive collaboration between Russian-born vocalist Larissa Stupar and guitarist Ash Gray (with the line-up rounded out by guitarist Ben Thomas, bassist Mike Jefferies and drummer Joe Bills) has exploded into a force to be reckoned with as vitriolic and outspoken lyrically as they are musically.
VENOM PRISON is Larissa Stupar (lead vocals), Ash Gray (guitar), Ben Thomas (guitar), MikeJefferies (bass), and JoeBills (drums).
