Venom Prison have found their new label home with Century Media Records! Today (10th), the UK group announced signing with the label as they are currently working on their new album.


The band comments:

“We are proud to announce that Venom Prison has signed with Century Media Records for a worldwide deal. This deal marks the beginning of a new chapter for Venom Prison and we are honoured to call Century Media our home, which we look forward to sharing with some of the most iconic artists in heavy metal, as well many of our talented friends.” 


They continue:

“We have been writing new material relentlessly for the last 12 months. We’re pleased to finally be back in the studio.”


Century Media A&R Mike Gitter adds:

“Venom Prison is an important band in every sense of the word. They are a wakeup call with songs that are not just musically brutal, but dig into issues that challenge our day-to-day existence. Gender issues. Cultural and political oppression. They’re relevant in ways that so many bands fall short of. Venom Prison is the band we need now more than ever.”


Philipp Schulte, Director Century Media Records, expresses:

“With Venom Prison one of the finest British bands of recent years joins the ranks of Century Media Records. Venom Prison’s vision marks an overdue turning point in the sort of musical and lyrical complacency that has long plagued the worldwide metal scene. This is not your older brother’s feel-good metal. This is extreme music with a compelling message, and it perfectly fits to what Century Media as a label will always stand for: Establishing bands and artists who are willing to make a difference and take a stand. Venom Prison is a trailblazing band for what metal can and will be in the upcoming decade. Welcome to Century Media Records!”
