Venom are a heavy metal band from England founded in 1978. The band began releasing albums in 1981. First there was Welcome To Hell, and then the next year they followed it up with Black Metal. These records proved to be hugely influential for many metal sub-genres, paving the way for thrash metal, black metal, extreme metal, and more. Despite various lineup changes throughout the career, the band is still together and led by bassist and singer Cronos. This original Venom shirt, with wear and fading, was made by Razmataz in 1996.
