Returning to their artistic partnership with Eliran Kantor, death metal's VENOM PRISON have returned for Primeval, an 11-track composition of standouts from early EPs, Defy The Tyrant (2015) and The Primal Chaos (2015), and relentless new tracks. Primeval arrives October 9th via Prosthetic Records but the band have made available a new take on Defy The Tyrant as the lead offering.

VENOM PRISON comment on the track:

"This song is not only criticising organised religion and Christianity as a whole but also the ways in which it was spread across the whole world; resulting in genocide, rape, colonialism, slavery, misogyny and homophobia. It is this spirit of inherent superiority that characterised the attitude of the European nations as they expanded overseas, competing for colonial power and the conversion of 'heathen' natives. Rather than standing up against the trans-Atlantic slavery, the church helped perpetuate the practice, endeavouring to support slavery on biblical grounds.

'Defy The Tyrant' is as relevant today as it was five years ago. As long as there is a master in the sky, there will be slaves on earth."
