Erebos drops on February 4th via Century Media Records.
Venom Prison are back with another offering from their highly anticipated upcoming album Erebos. A departure from their previous release, “Nemesis”, is a furious track, with vocalist Larissa Stupar unleashing absolute rage with every note. But that rage isn’t without the catharsis we have come to expect from Venom Prison tracks.
“This song is about the urge to hurt the person who has caused you irreparable harm and has changed your life forever. It deals with having been left to fix the damage done to you all by yourself. This specifically relates to experiencing narcissistic abuse and the trauma resulting from it”, states Venom Prison about “Nemesis”.
The band further explains, “Narcissists tend to pick empaths as their victims because they are emotional sponges who can absorb feelings from other people easily and this makes them very attractive to narcissists as these people will fulfill all of their needs in a selfless way. This results in a parasitic relationship. With ‘Nemesis’ we wanted to capture the emotions of aggression, determination and pain in a more traditional Venom Prison manner. Bringing you brutal moments, energetic pace and the head banging assault of heavy metal.”
Musically, the track explores Venom Prison’s more progressive chops, without compromising on rhythm.
Venom Prison is one of the fast rising acts of 2022. Their uncompromising lyrics and musical prowess make their upcoming album, Erebos, one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year. We had the opportunity to sit down with Larissa and chat about the details. Check out that interview HERE.
