Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) Deluxe Edition of the Metal band's groundbreaking 1982 album featuring 11 bonus tracks plus a bonus live DVD. Black Metal is Venom's most important release. This was the album that gained the band recognition and tilted the Heavy Metal world off it's axis, inspiring countless of disciples to pick-up the gauntlet and blaze their own trail down the brightly lit pathway scorched by the grooves of this masterpiece. This edition for the new millennium serves to enhance the original with a plethora of mouth watering additions. Following the original album are 11 bonus tracks consisting of a Radio One Session, outtakes, remixes and the single, 'Bloodlust'. However, the piece-de-resistance comes with a complete second DVD disc of the monumental live show, the 7th Date of Hell, filmed at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1984. Sanctuary.

I will always remember the fateful day when a school friend handed me Venom's very own "Black Metal" opus and suggested I give it a spin. With trepidation I placed the vinyl on my stereo and although the sound was harsh and brutal you knew you were listening to something exciting and new. It was strangely perverse yet deliciously addictive...plus your parents hated it which is a huge bonus for any teenager. You will never catch your Mommy singing anything on offer here whilst dusting the Wedgewood figurines. And here it is again repackaged, remastered and beefed up with extra trax looking as resplendant as the day it was spewed from the sooty depths of Hell. Embossed and glossy the horned one invites you to slip back the cover and enter Hades if you dare? After the grating intro of steel on steel (which had you checking your stylus for defects) Cronos invites you to join the band in the worship of "Black Metal". A rip roarer of a song with chainsaw guitars, out of control drums and wolverine vocals its obvious this band means serious harm to your health and general well being. "To Hell and Back" is next which demonstrates the quantum leap the band's songwriting has taken since their delightfully basic debut album. You can imagine yourself a stride some gargoyle demon in flight travelling through the depths of the infernos. "Buried Alive" with its all too realistic soil on coffin lid sound effects and the coffins all too alive inhabitant waking to find his very dark confines are all too real. A true triumph of a song which is still disturbing all these years later. "Raise the Dead" belts out next with great bursts of Mantas guitar work firing from the speakers like sparks from an anvil.Read more ›

I just bought this cd and i havent stopped listening to it! It is an amazing album...just raw fast riffs and fast drumming! It is a classic metal album, although Venom is not really that well-known by some metalheads. Amazing songs on this album include the title track "Black Metal", my personal favorite "Countess Bathory", "Raise the Dead," "Acid Queen," and "Heaven's On Fire." This is just a raw album full of catchy riffs and Cronos (vocals, bassist) yelling and moaning and acting possessed, ot is just soooo awesome.

"Black Metal", an album that is just as its' name implies, is in my opinion Venom's finest hour. Just as the rest of Venom's catalog, "Black Metal" goes without hooks or in sync melody, and opts instead for over the top heaviness, pounding drums, ripping guitars, and toungue in cheek lyrics about the man downstairs. Songs like "Black Metal", "To Hell and Back", "Buried Alive", and "Sacrifice" are all great thrashing songs, while the unexpectedly laugh out loud hilarious "Teacher's Pet" shows that the band is more than what they are perceived to be and really do have a sense of humor. I say that this album is important for a very good reason; every thrash band that boomed in the 80's (Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, Exodus) cited Venom as one of their top influences, and Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo even cited "Black Metal" as one of the most influential albums of his life. All that there alone is reason enough to give Venom a listen. This recent re-issue has a much sharper sound than any of the previously available imports, which makes it all the sweeter for new listeners to check out.

The first Venom album I ever heard was "At War With Satan". I hated it. It was raw, crude and extremely blasphemous. Now I love it. Venom's music really has to grow on you. You'll probably either love it or think it's total garbage. "Black Metal", their second album, recorded in '82, is one of the best albums of its kind. It's the one that set the tone for all other black metal bands. Many have copied Venom's style, and many have failed. But this is the original. This is a new "remastered" version, but to be honest, the sound quality isn't really that much of an improvement, but that's okay. It still kicks ... Starting with the simplistic, but furious, title track, to the eerie & haunting "Buried Alive", to the raunchy, yet bluesy "Teacher's Pet", to the powerful "Leave Me In Hell", a song about a demonic being who wants to stay unborn and remain in Hell, & which opened side two of the original LP, to the classic "Countess Bathory", to the cool & scary epic, "Don't Burn The Witch" and ending with the "At War With Satan (intro)",which previewed the next album. This CD will either make you sick to your stomach or have you banging your ... head all day & night! Plus it's got NINE bonus tracks, like "Die Hard", 2 versions of "Bursting Out", the previously unreleased "Hounds Of Hell", Radio 1 Sessions and other Satanic goodies. But beware! This ain't for the squeamish.

(My Review scale: 1- Bad, 2- Average, 3- Good, 4- Very Good, 5- Excellent/Classic)

Venom's second album stands as a huge jump from their debut, Welcome To Hell. On Black Metal, Venom managed to maintain the sonic pounding of the debut, while improving their musicianship.

The sound is still pretty muddy, but Cronos delivers some pretty good vocals. Compared with most of the tuneless shouters who are prevalent in this type of metal, Cronos is freaking Pavarotti!

Mantas really is advanced here as his guitar shreds anything that came before it! Songs like "Black Metal", "Buried Alive", "Blood Lust" and "Sacrifice" all are relentless in their sonic pounding.

Venom's lyrics I can take or leave. I'm not really into the satanic thing. But for those into that sort of stuff, Black Metal is far more satanic than the debut. And, in terms of lyrics, they are pretty inventive. They don't seem hokey even after all these years, which is more than I can say for a lot of Mercyful Fate/King Diamond's lyrics. (I like Fate/King, by the way)

Venom invented the black metal genre, and no one ever did it better. I can't decide if I like this effort or At War With Satan more, but they are both 5 stars, simply for their adventurous nature, and the way they developed a whole new form of metal. There are really no bad songs on Black Metal...and like most Venom albums, you kind of feel proud to be able to sit and listen to them from beggining to end, because that's how relentless they are. Too bad this Nu Metal sludge we are presented with in 2005 can't be this cool!
