Martin Popoff – eBook – Venom – Black Metal 

The 2022 Martin Popoff 26-page ebook about the Venom album, Black Metal. 

In 1982, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was half done like dinner. Venom had come along to drive a stake through the heart of relatively tame bands like Saxon, Iron Maiden and Tygers of Pan Tang. In the raucous process, they laid the groundwork for no less than three future heavy metal genres: death metal, thrash and black metal, for which this shockingly incendiary record is named. What this document does (more than the usual one of this Popoff series) is concentrate on the thought process that erected this band of blasphemers. Ergo, like Venom laying the groundwork for nasty heavy metal, Popoff—through his own extensive interview material with all three members of the band, Cronos, Mantas and Abaddon—lays the groundwork for Venom itself.
