Venom Prison – Samsara

Animus’ reversal of more traditional Death Metal imagery was a breath of fresh air for many and a point of contention for others. Alongside tours with the likes of Trivium and Bloodstock main stage slots, Venom Prison garnered a large support base from fans and journalists alike, but it’s the ‘difficult second album’ that often causes younger bands to be ditched by the mainstream Metal press.

Their sophomore efforts are out now under the title Unworthy via Prosthetic Records, and it is mighty impressive. Continue reading
