About this album

Black Metal is the second album by Venom, and the origin of the term “black metal”. It was released in 1982 and is considered one of the most important albums to the extreme metal movement, most notably the emerging thrash metal, death metal and black metal scenes of the 1980s and 1990s. Despite being a major foundation for black metal’s lyrical emphasis and aesthetics, the genre itself has expanded and evolved a great deal since the album’s conception.

The original cover art was made by the band’s bassist and singer, Conrad “Cronos” Lant.

    The specific subgenre it most closely influenced and belongs to doesn't matter. Many metal bands of many stripes were influenced by this, Welcome to Hell and other early Venom records. What matters is that the music Venom made, particularly on this record, kicks all kinds of ass for any genre of music. One of the best of all time right here.

    This is actually better than black metal, it should have stayed that way and not the shitty 'true norwegian' [5]

    If you don't think there's norwegian black metal that invokes Venom and Celtic Frost among other things to insane degrees, you haven't heard much of it.
