"Black Metal"

Venom is a metal band from the United Kingdom. To try and stand out from the other artists, they were the first band to introduce a highly satanic image and lyrical approach, thus becoming the very first First Wave of Black Metal band. Their fast music was also very influential to the Thrash Metal genre. Despite helping launch two of the most prominent genres of metal today, even in their most popular years they were criticized for lacking musical skills. However, they made up for that with enthusiasm and good showmanship.

Not to be confused with the Spider-Man villain.
