Led by the unique lyrical and vocal talents of Larissa Stupar, Venom Prison's rise to prominence has been swift and exhilarating. Both 2016 debut album "Animus" and it's 2019 follow-up "Samsara" received widespread praise from media and fans alike, while the band's ferocious live shows notched up acres of wide-eyed acclaim. As a result, the release of Venom Prison's third full-length, "Erebos", is destined to be one of /the/ metal events of 2022. A wildly inventive but utterly destructive onslaught of genre-defying extremity, "Erebos" is a giant leap forward and deafening confirmation that Venom Prison are the real, ground-breaking deal. "Everything needed to be bigger, better, catchier," says guitarist Ash Gray. "We have said many times in the past that this band will not write the same record over and over again. It wasn't about showing how heavy we can be. We know we're a heavy band. We just wanted to be more creative, and this time we had the luxury of having time on our side. Larissa's distinctive style comes through even stronger. It's even more poetic, while still critical of the issues we face in Western society."
