Voices From The Gig (review)
"At long last, Venom! As the original icons of sin took to the stage, a sense of consummation filled the air. They came in hot and fast and without hesitation. “Black Metal” and “Bloodlust” rang through the ballroom as fans shouted every lyric. Continuing through the set playing deep cuts from later albums punctuated with fan favorites such as “Countess Bathory”
"Cronos is everything I hope all my metal-head friends will be as they age. He is everything I hoped he would be: gritty, hilarious, and extremely talented. They put on an amazing set at Mac Hall and lived up to all of my expectations"
"Cliché, I know, but was it ever thrilling to stand between the barrier and Venom for the first several songs and shoot. Screaming “EVIL, IN LEAGUE WITH SATAN” while the crowd went bonkers and crowd surfers were hauled over the edge was perfect. While several songs were not true to the originals – a lack of the blinding speed of their early records – it was an honour to see Venom in our hometown surrounded by friends from around the country"
