One of those albums that you simply must own to be able to join a conversation about rock music. Pure Cult.

Debate still rages about their commitment to the Dark Arts, and their musical ability, but that misses the point. Venom neither take themselves too seriously, not care what you think, so if singing about Satan is what they fancy on a given morning, that is what they will do.

The wall of feedback intro sets the tone of the album, which is a cross between chaos, genius, and uptempo british Heavy Metal. Cronos once described Abbadon's drumming as sounding like he was falling down the stairs, and Cronos himself could be playing anything on his bass for all you can tell. Mantas' guitar is the cement which holds it all together, and the riffs are instant, heavy and enduring.

Don't get too excited about the bonus tracks, although Bloodlust and Die Hard could easily have made their way on to the original album.

This obviously sounds nowhere near as extreme now as it was to ears in 1982, but that it has lasted this long should tell you how good it is.

This is where it began. Black Metal started here and never looked back. You may think the CD is broken at first...then HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!!! From Fast and HEAVY, to slower songs with CRUNCH! This album doesn't disapoint a person looking for where it all began. The Bonus tracks just add to the chaos....HELL YEAH!!! This album took to long to Remaster, but in the end it was worth the wait. So BUY a piece of BLACK METAL History!!!!!!!

BLACK METALL!!! Yes their supposedly best album, but I rate the debut higher, this is still an excellent album and worthy of the legendary 'Black Metal' genre it spawned...

The title track opens up with a chainsaw and is a fantastic piece of fast proto-thrash, from the start you can tell the production values of this album have improved (albeit only slightly), the whole album is slightly less buried in distortion and you can hear Cronos' bass a lot clearer. There are some classics on here such as the 2 part 'Buried alive/raise the dead'(the demo on the debut was slightly better though), but its the fact that Venom have slightly slowed down and produced more menacing songs in the vein of 'In Legue With Satan' that I like about this release.

The last 3 songs rank among my all-time favourate outputs from Venom, Countess Bathory is a dark and slighty gothic song about the legendary Countess who bathed in virgin's blood, the black metal band 'Bathory' even named themselves after this song! 'Don't Burn the witch' is probibly my fave song on the album and one of Mantas' best riffs, again, Slayer took great influence and this woundn't be out of place on their debut! Plus the preview of 'At War with Satan' that takes up 20 minutes of their next album demostrates a better guitar sound than the one on that album. Listening to these and say a more traditional black metal band such as Iuvenes you can tell the beginnings of something new and unique.

The bonus stuff is a somewhat welcome return to the fast (very fast) Venom thats missing from the main album, and there are some really good tunes here, but their all kinda similar and after a while sound very samey. Still, an essential release just for the last 3 tracks of the original album alone, which are all true black metal (the genre) classics.

i first heard of venom back in middle of 2009 on a documentary called 'Metal a headbangers journey' it features a song called 'bloodlust' and i was amazed by it, the song was really good and the music video was great seeing the lights and the smoke and cronos singing (well shouting really) 'tearing the flesh of the weak tender child sparing my lord of the meek and the mild i'll sink my fangs in your neck as you dream i am count cronos vampire supreme' it blew me away. So in october of that year i was in HMV and i saw black metal expanded edition with the dvd with it and i immidiatly bought it. and i have been a big fan since. the songs are excellent my favorites being the opening track 'blackmetal' 'to hell and back' 'buried alive' 'countess bathory' and 'don't burn the witch'. And to tell you the truth this album this to me sounds the orininal line ups best produced album (apart from the comeback album 'cast in stone'. The DVD is really good albiet dark but thats just how we like it.

I bought this purely for the 7th Date of Hell DVD. I was at the gig in '84, so I wanted to re-live the 'event'. There are very few filmed gigs that come close to the experience of being there, and this is no exception. However it's worth buying as a record of what was in many ways a truly amazing show. The fact that it was pretty well there first UK gig, self-financed, and at the Hammersmith Odeon to boot, is remarkable enough in itself, but when you take into account the sheer size and pyrotechnical nature of the show, it moves up to another level entirely.
The CD seems to be the same remaster from a few few years ago, which itself didn't compare to the original vinyl (ignoring all the bonus tracks). Taken as a whole it's a great snapshot of an influential band at their short-lived peak.

In the early 80s Venom were regarded as a bit of a joke by the sneering critics, largely because their mastery of their instruments wasn't, shall we say, in the Steve Vai league. However, despite being labelled as the `worst band in the world', they did spawn a Black Metal genre - odd then, that on the basis of this album, (the namesake of the genre), it's hard to see how this happened. The real `joke' of Venom wasn't their rudimentary mastery of their respective instruments, it was actually the perspective of the band itself. Venom really did not take themselves as seriously as all the pundits thought (IMHO) and Black Metal is the pinnacle of the bands tomfoolery in this regard - even Satan on the cover is smirking, as if in on the joke.

Kicking off with the big one, `Black Metal' the title track, Cronos roars the chorus `Lay Down Your Souls To The Gods Rock N Roll' thus confirming beyond all doubt that this is as far from Burzum's depressing output as ABBA's is from Slayer's. And so it goes on - `Metal Ten Fold Through The Deadly Black Hole' is hardly a lyric that is going to get your average pale faced Norwegian loon to head off to the local church with a lighted torch in hand. This isn't a criticism, though, because the actual title track is a work of pure genius - a roller coaster of dirty Motorhead speed, aggression and power.

Next up, though, is `To Hell and Back', which is a grinding plodder that is no more sinister or demonic than the Saxon song of the same title, and then comes the slightly eerie Buried Alive. This is notable for the comic introduction, complete with dust noises on coffin and a sort of Rowan Atkinson take on a Priest, and the meandering almost bluesy guitar solo, which again is not classic Black Metal fare.
