This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘At War With Satan’, the third studio album from heavy metal’s nastiest trio, Venom. Of course Venom never got the commercial plaudits lauded upon Iron Maiden and Def Leppard who went from strength to strength, breaking out of the NWOBHM scene, but Venom were more insidious, influential and before they knew it, bands were popping up all over the world wanting to be Venom. Breaking away from the destructive onslaught ‘Black Metal’ and ‘Welcome to Hell’, ‘At War With Satan’ showed a band gaining a maturity in their songwriting with the likes of ‘Cry Wolf’ and the immense side sprawling title track, then again…. ‘Aaaaaarrghh!’. Anyway, it’s a beautiful morning, the birds are chirping and the sun is shining, what better way to wake everyone up with Venom by cranking out ‘At War With Satan’!
