The Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan era VENOM albums “Prime Evil”, “Tear Your Soul Apart”, “Temples Of Ice” and “The Wastelands” will be re-released on vinyl via Rock Mark in July. All four albums have been remastered from the original masters. Tony Dolan issued the following comments about the re-releases: “It’s been a long road and one of persistent work, but finally the road ended and we can present these recordings again. “Prime Evil”, “Tear Your Soul Apart”, “Temples Of Ice” and “The Wastelands” with original art, full lyrics, some nice bonus extras too. First time on vinyl – “Kissing The Beast” and extra surprises. This was never about money but about this important part of the history of a band, and the recordings that went with that period finally being re-released, so those who couldn’t find them or didn’t get the chance to own them, or even hear them properly, can now do that with these remastered but not remixed pieces of history. Music is to be heard and to have fought so hard to free these recordings for you finally, is the all to me. Enjoy!” Rock Mark will also release a box set (limited to 166 copies), which will include all albums on 180 gr splatter vinyl, in different colors, in gatefold covers and with lyrics. The boxset will also have the bonus vinyl “Pentagram” (transparent UV print with inlay), which will feature the songs ‘If You Want A War’ and ‘Surgery’ (both recorded during the “Prime Evil” session in 1989) and live bootleg versions of ‘Black Metal’ and ‘Witching Hour’. An exclusive 30 x 30 cm 16 page booklet with Tony Dolan’s notes and stories of those days in VENOM and some rare photos will complete the package. A CD boxset will follow later as well.
