“If anything fucks up on stage, smash the lot and walk off!”

What a way to start 2018! My first interview for the year is none other than a chat with legendary VENOM guitarist, Mantas (aka Jeff Dunn). This was a huge deal for me as anyone who knows me personally knows that I think Venom are the greatest metal band of all time. When I started interviewing bands when I was a teen, I never in my life thought I would ever get to chat to anyone in Venom. They just seemed unavailable. I contacted PR people, record label people, the webmasters of their official site, etc. I tried every avenue and just couldn’t get a lead in. Thankfully, my calls were answered and this interview happened last year but I was so busy with life and all that jive that I figured I’d take a break from the podcast and start fresh in the new year and I couldn’t think of a better way to start 2018 than with this lovely chat. I can’t even begin to tell you just how big a fan I am of Venom and all their related projects. They’re one band I collect obsessively and I was thrilled to hear that Abaddon, The Demolition Man, and Mantas are bringing VENOM INC. to Australia thanks to the gold folk at Hardline Media. This is huge! Anyway, you can listen to our chat right now by clicking on THIS LINK.
