Arisen from the ashes of the too soon defunct EXCORIATE (Germany), VENENUM strikes mercilessly with its Heavy Metal of Death! Even though the band has only released a self-titled mini album for now, one can assume that VENENUM is a band that already matters and will for sure leave its mark in the Death Metal legacy. Mixing asphyxiating riffs of heaviness and eerie passages of morbid darkness, VENENUM definitely knows how to combine the best of death and darkness into their age old Metal cauldron.

Slægt started as a solo-project of Oskar J. Frederiksen (lead vocals & guitars) in 2011. The beginning saw Slægt delve in raw and primitive black metal aggression. Over time the band has developed into having a full line-up now including Anders M. Jørgensen (guitars), Olle Bergholz (bass guitar) and Adam ”CCsquele” Nielsen (drums). Although the current version of Slægt seems to have progressed a lot since its early days, the essence still remains untouched. Stylistically influences are now drawn from a broader spectrum from such diverse movements as the NWOBHM and the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s. Slægt delivers what can be best described as an epic blackened heavy metal with lots of catchy moments, played fast but without the usual blastbeats, exploring sound patterns that seem familiar, but always making them sound fresh. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.
