Venator - 'Nightrider' (audio)

One way down the track, never looking back
Anymore and he won’t tell
Fed up of his life, shows the past his knife
And you know he’s out for hell

Ride on! Ride on alone into the night
Erasing all that’s in his sight
It’s alive! Release the demon’s in your mind!
It’s alive! Don’t let the foolish make you blind!

Racing with the sun, whatever lies beyond
It goes on and on and on
You cannot kill the beast but you can escape it’s feast
There ain’t no right or wrong

Nightrider, streetfighter
You prey the dawn
Outsider, hellrider
Run on and on!

Never mind the crying sheep feeding on their pride
Following an endless slope to avoid the dark of night
Masses come from all about for whom the strings are pulled
Whatever lurks beyond the curtain’s waiting to get full

Release your mind! It is your guide
Ignore the blind, cause it’s alive!
Release the demon’s in your mind!
It’s alive! Don’t let the foolish make you blind!

One way down the track, never looking back
Anymore and he won’t tell
You cannot kill the beast but you can escape it’s feast
Arise and give ‘em hell!



Οι Venator μας έρχονται από την Αυστρία. Heavy metal μπάντα η οποία δημιουργήθηκε προ εξαετίας και μετά από ένα ep ("Paradiser" 2020) και ένα split (μαζί με τους Angel Blade) είναι πανέτοιμη για τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο. "Echoes from the Gutter" ο τίτλος και θα κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη Φεβρουαρίου...

Ο δίσκος των Venator 'Echoes from the Gutter'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Despite forming in 2016, it was not until 2020 when Venator made their recorded debut with the EP Paradiser.

Nevertheless, the three songs contained therein were an incredibly auspicious first start, showing Venator as a band seemingly thawed out from 1983, so authentic and skyward was their songwriting. Wrapped in a uniquely retro-futuristic production, Paradiser pointed the way forward for Venator, and the buzz began to build.

Now, that buzz is gonna boil over with the band’s full-length debut, Echoes From the Gutter. Graced with yet another amazingly era-authentic artwork courtesy of frontman Hans Huemer, Echoes From the Gutter takes the melody and moodiness of its no-less-inconsiderable predecessor to uncharted heights (and depths!) of glory, both grimy and gleaming.

Right from the record’s very first seconds, Venator burst and bristle with an electricity that’s positively, stunningly addicting; ANTHEM after ANTHEM is doled out with almost laissez-faire ease, each hook hoisted heavenly and then brought back down to - yes - the gutter.

It’s the kind of album that walks that fine line between street-level and upwardly-mobile, much like heavy metal's forerunning bands of the early 1980s, when the landscape of conquest from club to stadium was still a special dream.

Or, simply submit to the emotive vocals of Huemer, whose heart-on-sleeve clarity commands his bandmates onward, they in kind delivering a truly impassioned performance that encompasses many speeds and many moods, but always with those HOOKS front and center - and fucking GODLY solos!

Seriously: the solos here!!! Anyone pining for the 1983/’84 peak of the likes of Tokyo Blade, Grim Reaper, OZ, Witch Cross, Heavy Load, and even Judas Priest but adding to that hallowed lineage rather than plagiarizing it, you’ve found your new modern classic in Venator's Echoes From the Gutter!»
