First-time visitors Venom Prison announce Download sideshow in Brisbane

Venom Prison are making their way to Australia for the first time next month as part of Download Festival and have just announced a sideshow in Brisbane.

The UK death metal brutalists will play at The Foundry on March 22.

Venom Prison released their second album, ‘Samsara’, named after the Buddhist concept of being reborn into a never-ending cycle of suffering, in early 2019.

Venom Prison are led by Larissa Stupar, who’s caustic vocal delivery is laced with themes of femininity, sacrifice, self-destruction and sadistic rituals.

It’s also interlinked with self-analysis and discovery as Larissa comments on Samsara’s lyrical subject matter: “There is a political thread of fury that delivers a lashing in the direction of human trafficking, forced surrogacy, capital punishment and the dismal trail of destruction left by societal architects and rulers.” 

Venom Prison first hit the underground with a self-released demo, ‘Defy the Tyrant’, in 2015.

They continued to rip through the touring circuits of the UK and Mainland Europe, following up with ‘The Primal Chaos EP’.  

Their debut full length ‘Animus’ soon followed on Prosthetic Records.

They continued their assault on the UK, Europe, US and Canada, touring with the likes of Trap Them, Gorguts, Trivium, Code Orange, Fit For An Autopsy, Aborted and Power Trip, in addition to festivals such as Download, Bloodstock, Boomtown and Damnation.
