Massive news from the Venom Prison camp as the band have announced they’re writing their next record. Not only that, they’ve signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.
The death metal heavy hitters say that the signing “marks the beginning of a new chapter for Venom Prison, and we are honoured to call Century Media our home, which we look forward sharing with some of the most iconic artists in heavy metal, as well many of our talented friends.”
“Venom Prison is an important band in every sense of the word,” says Century Media A&R Mike Gitter. “They are a wake-up call with songs that are not just musically brutal, but dig into issues that challenge our day-to-day existence. Gender issues. Cultural and political oppression. They’re relevant in ways that so many bands fall short of. Venom Prison is the band we need now more than ever.” Well said, indeed.
Century Media Director Philipp Schulte adds: “With Venom Prison, one of the finest British bands of recent years joins the ranks of Century Media Records. Venom Prison’s vision marks an overdue turning point in the sort of musical and lyrical complacency that has long plagued the worldwide metal scene. This is not your older brother’s feel-good metal. This is extreme music with a compelling message, and it perfectly fits to what Century Media as a label will always stand for: Establishing bands and artists who are willing to make a difference and take a stand. With Venom Prison is a trailblazing band for what metal can and will be in the upcoming decade. Welcome to Century Media Records!”
And it sounds like the band are making waves with their first offering on the label.
