VENOM (ENGLAND)


Forefathers of Black Metal. Originally began as a 5-piece called Guillotine with Clive Archer on vocals, Alan Winston on bass and Cronos on rhythm guitar. Cronos switched to bass when Alan Winston left the band a week before a gig - his decision to plug his bass guitar into a guitar amp is credited with the development of his trademark "bulldozer bass" sound. The line-up was further trimmed down to a three-piece following the first demo session when the rest of the band decided they preferred Cronos' vocal style to Archer's.

DEMON 1980 DEMO

Xeroxed covers. Tapes varied which they made as many copies as they could to mail out to all sort of labels and magazines, and one mag in particular was 'Sounds Magazine', and we were astonished that Geoff Barton decided to put all 3 tracks in his play list. For a few weeks running, he claimed he loved them so much he didn't want 3 different artists like the other journalists put in their play lists, he just put all 3 of our song from the demo.
Ive seen two versions which are below
