M-PIRE OF EVIL – Hell to the Holy
Three former members of Venom in tow (the most famous being guitarist Jeff Dunn… aka Mantas) for this outfit M-pire Of Evil. Tony Dolan (The Demolition Man) is on bass/vocals, while Antton handles the drums for this three piece on their debut album “Hell To The Holy”. This is pedestrian traditional metal at best, very much 80’s rooted with weak hooks and cringe worthy vocals. It’s not thunderous, it’s not sloppy, but you can rest assured the raw obliterating power of early Venom shoots this out of the globe.
