Austria's VENATOR stream DYING VICTIMS debut album at "Decibel" magazine's website

Today, Austrian heavy metallers  Venator  stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album,   Echoes From the Gutter , at   Decibel   magazine's website . Set for international release on February 25th via  Dying Victims Productions , h ear  Venator 's  Echoes From the Gutter  in its entirety exclusively  HERE .

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 !

Hear all of it for yourself exclusively  HERE courtesy of  Decibel , North America's only monthly metal magazine.  Aforementioned c over art and tracklisting are as follows:
