Newcastle, UK, 1979: Singer Conrad “Cronos” Lant, guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray form Venom, a distressed, almost lo-fi version of Motörhead that improbably becomes a touchstone for Scandinavian black metal decades later.

Ohio’s Necrophagia, NYC’s Sunlord, and Austin’s Blood Royale support. – Raoul Hernandez
