Venom: one of the first thrash metal bands, if not the first. Their music: loved and adored, or hated and despised. Where do I stand? I stand right in the middle. Yes, I sit on top of the fence - not really a fan, nor a hater.

Rating: 10 Sad, no review. Great Band, Great Album. Salute.

  I know! Great band, Great album, very innovative, very influential. Even though the production was sort of poor, Venom were very ahead of their time.

  Venom is probably one of the most influential metal bands ever. Black metal is maybe not so melodic and well played, but its simply legendary. Norwegian black metal wouldnt exist, without Venom.

Fucking logic, how does it work?

Although most probably he just changed his mind, it has been a year after the review after all.
