Venom Prison announce new album ‘Primeval,’ release re-working of “Defy The Tyrant”

Death metal trailblazers, Venom Prison, have today announced a new release titled, Primeval. The 11-track album will feature re-recordings of tracks from their early EPs, Defy The Tyrant and Primal Chaos, as well as two brand new tracks. The first track from Primeval is a re-working of Defy The Tyrant, which is streaming everywhere now, and features an accompanying video which can be viewed below. Primeval will be released by Prosthetic Records on October 9, pre-orders are available here.

Of the track, the band comment:
This song is not only criticising organised religion and Christianity as a whole but also the ways in which it was spread across the whole world; resulting in genocide, rape, colonialism, slavery, misogyny and homophobia. It is this spirit of inherent superiority that characterised the attitude of the European nations as they expanded overseas, competing for colonial power and the conversion of “heathen” natives. Rather than standing up against the trans-Atlantic slavery, the church helped perpetuate the practice, endeavouring to support slavery on biblical grounds.

“Defy The Tyrant is as relevant today as it was five years ago. As long as there is a master in the sky, there will be slaves on earth.
