Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989 – 1992 Venom line-up of guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn and vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and the new addition of drummer Jeramie ‚Warmachine‘ Kling have returned with one hell of a follow-up to their acclaimed debut, „Avé,“ and show no signs of slowing down.
Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan comments:
„Following Wacken in 2019, our live season closed giving us time where I could have my hip replacement surgery and the band could use the recovery time to work on a new album…Little did anyone know we’d be hit by a pandemic that would pause the whole world.
We began our work at a pace, then being locked down with no prospect of live shows, we decided there was no need to rush it but instead utilise the time to create without the pressure of live work looming.
So we began recording our songs and after producing twice the amount required, we began editing, touching up, improving and polishing until we finally had what we felt was THE correct album to finally present to you: a pure ball of furious VENOM INC power that left us feeling proud and excited at the same time. THIS album will soon be yours!!! And as the world runs through its evolution of colours remember: when the sun goes out…THERE’S ONLY BLACK!!!!! AVE!“

Black Void – release music video for new single ‚Dadaist Disgust‘ feat. Sakis Tolis from ROTTING CHRIST!
22. April 2022
Today, Norwegian nihilists BLACK VOID have unleashed their second single ‚Dadaist Disgust‘ onto the world, featuring black metal legend Sakis Tolis (ROTTING CHRIST).
- Reject Everything
- Death to Morality
- Tenebrism of Life
- No Right, No Wrong
- It’s not Surgery, it’s a Knife Fight
- Explode into Nothingness
- Dadaist Disgust
The single comes with a mesmerizing music video, that you can watch here:
Their forthcoming record „Antithesis“ will be released on May 27th . A bold debut filled with nihilistic aggression and desperation – it is furious and unrepentant in attitude. It builds on the philosophical works of Friedrich Nietzsche while leaning on punk rock and black metal. Nihilistic, filthy, violent and raw.
Lars Are Nedland comments:
„Dadaism is in its core a rejection of logic and tradition. An art movement built on negation with an undercurrent of nihilism. BLACK VOID embraces the subversion of social and moral authorities, and much as the Dadaists we meet aggression with aggression – the absurd with the absurd.‘
Dadaist Disgust‘, then, is BLACK VOID’s way of connecting art and philosophy. Our take on two expressions that turn conventional thinking on its head – all set in a suitable framework of black metal inspired punk.
Add to that an amazing voice from the birthplace of philosophy in guest vocalist Sakis Tolis of Greek Black Metal Godfathers ROTTING CHRIST, and you have a song laden with morality-shattering anti-art and a black metal pedigree.
The video was beautifully created by visual virtuosi Joakim Storsve and Daniel Øverland, and contains fragments of both Nietzschean imagery and Dadaist references.
As Tolis snarls on the song’s chorus: Anti-art is the true art, Dada broke your conventions“
Sakis Tolis comments: „It is an honour for me to be a part of Lars Nedland’s BLACK VOID project and it’s a privilege to work with one of the best Metal Voices around and a humble and honest Metal Warrior as well. ‚Dadaist Disgust‘ kicks some serious ass, my brothers and sisters. Give it a listen and blow up your speakers. Horns Up!“
