Last year, VENOM INC. recruited Jeramie Kling of the Tampa-based melodic death metal band THE ABSENCE to fill in for drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray on a European tour while Abaddon stayed home to spend time with his newborn daughter. VENOM INC. has since completed several tours with Kling without making any official announcements about Bray‘s possible return to the group.
VENOM INC.‘s debut album, “Avé”, was released in August 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Dunn, Bray and Dolan released three albums as VENOM between 1989 and 1992 — “Prime Evil” (1989), “Temples Of Ice” (1991) and “The Waste Lands” (1992).
VENOM INC. is not to be confused with the Conrad “Cronos” Lant-fronted version of VENOM, which is continuing to tour and make albums under the VENOM moniker. Joining Cronos in that group are Rage (a.k.a. Stuart Dixon) on guitar and Danté (a.k.a. Danny Needham) on drums.
