Venom are a heavy metal band formed in 1979 in England.
Coming to prominence towards the end of the "New wave of British Heavy Metal", Venom's first two albums – Welcome to Hell (1981) and Black Metal (1982) – are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general. Venom's second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of an extreme metal subgenre: Black Metal.
P.S. During the weekend will show my EW's counts (primary and alternative) at short term (at medium and long term nothing changed).
