“Music to crack skulls by”–probably YOURS while you’re furiously headbanging. NEW LIVE & RARE could be considered VENOM’S finest work, except that CRONOS isn’t grunting out the lyrics on these, it’s the death-defying DEMOLITION MAN on bass & vocals. Will definitely make any Venom fan turn over every gravestone looking for more CD’s with the D-man on ‘em. All tracks are ferociously fast, loud and crazy, venturing into punk territory at times, but with very little satanic foolishness. Best track: TEMPLES OF ICE, hardcore homage to HP Lovecraft! GET IT BEFORE IT GETS YOU!
