February 8, 2012, 5 years ago
MPIRE OF EVIL (formerly PRIMEVIL) - featuring former VENOM members Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan (bass, vocals), Jeff "Mantas" Dunn (guitar) and Antony "Antton" Lant (drums - brother of original Venom frontman Conrad "Cronos" Lant) - will release their full-length debut, Hell To The Holy, on March 26th via Scarlet Records.
The band has released the track ‘Hellspawn’, off the new album, online for streaming. Check it out below:
According to a press release, "the CD boasts ten brand-new tracks displaying the band's infectious and groovy heavy metal assault, conveying Mantas' thunderous riffs, a huge rhythm section and Dolan's abrasive vocals into a monstrous musical holocaust which will appeal to both old-school and modern metal fans."
The album was produced by Mantas himself and featuring cover artwork by Gyula Havancsák (ANNIHILATOR, DESTRUCTION, GRAVE DIGGER)
Despite having played on the album, drummer Antony "Antton" Lant has since left the band for personal reasons but a replacement will be announced soon.
