Tour Diary: Venom Prison

This past October, UK death metal upstarts Venom Prison toured Europe with blackened hardcore heavyweights Trap Them and nihilist sludgelords Okkultokrati for two weeks of deafening madness. Taking in the UK, France, Holland and Switzerland, it was a non-stop ride around the continent, laying waste to every venue possible.

To give us a taste of what it’s like to trek across Europe in a van, taking in everything from fluffy dogs to ‘brothel rooms’ to some of the biggest waterfalls we’ve ever seen, Venom Prison sent us some photos for a tour diary that you can check out below! Postcards are so not metal.

Venom Prison’s debut album Animus is out now.
