UK extremists Venom Prison are taking the next step in their career with their new label home, Century Media Records. They have also made known that they are currently busy writing their third full-length album.
The band commented:
“We are proud to announce that Venom Prison has signed with Century Media Records for a worldwide deal. This deal 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”.
“We have been writing new material relentlessly for the last 12 months,” added Venom Prison. “We’re pleased to finally be back in the studio.”
“Venom Prison is an important band in every sense of the word,”
says Century Media A&R Mike Gitter.
“They are a wakeup 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.”
Philipp Schulte, Director Century Media Records, comments:
“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. Venom Prison is a trailblazing band for what metal can and will be in the upcoming decade. Welcome to Century Media Records!”
