A sophisticated baNd..

The other songs are great too, although maybe not considered "classics" like some of their others, but who cares?!
Rob Michaels
The vinyl inserts should include the lyrics to the bonus tracks as well.

This was the first Venom album I ever heard-and I HATED IT! But, soon, I began to appreciate Venom's unique musical style. Now I can't get enough of 'em! Black metal would NOT exist if it weren't for Cronos, Mantas & Abaddon. It's that simple. Now on to the album. First, the cover to this CD alone is enough to give a priest a heart attack. It's a leather-bound book with an upside down cross on the front! Second, the songs. The songs are so raw, blasphemous & powerful that there really is no other band on earth that can be compared to Venom. The production on this one is actually a lot better than most of their stuff. The title track, "At War With Satan" is a 20 minute black metal masterpiece that's about Hell going to war with Heaven. In the end, Hell wins. But afterwards, the broken & beaten angels decide it's time for some payback, so the whole war starts up all over again. It never ends. It's too bad Venom never played this live, mainly cause of the length, but it would be awesome if they would. Any other band that tried to do an extra long song like this would probably fail miserably. Venom just did whatever the hell they wanted and if you didn't like it, SCREW YOU! The other songs are great too, although maybe not considered "classics" like some of their others, but who cares?! "Rip Ride" is a good rowdy, faster song; "Genocide" is another powerful song that deserves to be given a few listens; "Cry Wolf" is about somebody turning into a werewolf and being frightened by it, then eventually accepting the "curse"; "Stand Up and Be Counted" is also a great head-banger; "Women Leather & Hell" is kind of typical Venom sleaze.Read more ›

Venom's 3rd album into the darkest depths of hell opens up with the classic 20 minute opus, "At War With Satan." Personally, I think it is one of Venom's greatest songs. There is never a dull moment during this song considering how long it is. Cronos, Mantas and Abbadon let thier imaginations run rampant and there is so much going on throughout the song that you feel you are on a rollercoaster ride. Only in the past couple of years have I seen Venom start to get some recognition and that's sad. If people could look past the satanic imagery and really analyze the music, they would see that Venom is a very talented band doing a lot of stuff way ahead of it's time. If it wasn't for Venom, thier would be no bands like Slayer, Voivod, Mayhem, Emperor, Burzum or even Metallica. All these bands plus countless others cite Venom as an influence. Venom was the building blocks of real heavy metal and they should not be ignored. In my opinion, they are one of the greatest bands that ever came out. At War with Satan is just another classic NWOBHM album that is a must-have in the search for true metal. The remastered version contains a lot of bonus tracks that are very hard to find and are really great. Such as "Lady Lust" and "Warhead" just to name a few. By and large, Venom's At War With Satan is highly recommended in my book. Buy it!!!

This album shows Venom's more complex and ambitious side (as evident in the title track). That song is worth the price of this album alone, giving Venom fans everything they could ask for in a metal epic (Tempo changes that range from fast to slow, good soloing and many different atmospheres making it the most multidimensional Venom song I have ever heard). The rest of the album is composed mainly of cuts that are never really given the credit they deserve. My favorites picked out of that set of songs include "Rip tide", "Genocide", and "Cry wolf". The main bonus treat on this album is the collection of 12" singles never released on the original LP. All six of them are great, but I personally prefer "Warhead", "The seven gates of Hell", and "Woman". This album has received some negative flack for being to ambitious and containing too much filler. People started to ignore this album because of newer acts popping up in the states such as Metallica and Slayer. Personally, I see a point in Venom's career where they were brimming with ideas and were not scared to take chances with their music.

Some Venom fans were disappointed when this album was released way back in 1985; I really don't know why. OK, "Women Leather and Hell" isn't very good, and the last track is little more than Venom fooling around in the studio, but the rest of the album is excellent. The highlight is undoubtedly the 18 minute title track, which is an epic sort of like Rush's "2112" with an evil Satanic theme. If nothing else this proved that critics of the band who said that Venom had little songwriting ability and could barely play their instruments were very mistaken. Also, the production on this album is much clearer and sharper than on the previous two releases, which surprised some (including myself). This is an important addition to any 1980's black metal collection; unfortunately, this CD is becoming hard to find. If you can find one, I recommend the remastered CD that Castle Communications released in 2002; the sound is somewhat better, and it includes several bonus tracks, including the classic "Seven Gates of Hell".
