The cover of VENOM PRISON's debut album, Animus, brings the theme of the album to life in the form of an original Renaissance-style painting by artist Eliran Kantor depicting a man shackled and surrounded by women. Blood drips from between his legs as a woman shoves his severed genitals into his mouth. Animus has propelled VENOM PRISON, since the LP's release last year, from utter anonymity to sudden acclaim. Vocalist and front women Larrisa Stupar and her bandmates crafted a 34-minute horror show of breakdowns and beatdowns that incorporates elements of death metal and hardcore but sounds less like deathcore than something entirely new. The band's been on tour pretty much constantly since the release of the album and will come to crush Brutal Assault fans as well!
