Label: Sanctuary
This hugely influential record, a sludgy mixture of hardcore brutality and heavy metal majesty, seethes with Venom's early power.The band pretty much disgusted anyone with "taste" when this came out in 1982, but the joke was on them: the metal was so extreme, it was nearly a parody of itself. Thankfully, the kids in Norway thought they were serious.
