German Death Metal band VENENUM decided for the latter... and it was worth every fucking second of wait. 5 years after the successful s/t minialbum, VENENUM strike with their debut full-length entitled "Trance of Death".

The album presents VENENUM on a new level of brutality and contains new & never before heard layers of darkness. The six new compositions + introduction-theme are a grand melt of unique visions and unaltered tradition, weaved & merged into a complex unit of sacred horror. "Trance of Death" is far away from being another one-dimensional tribute to the grave... it is reverence & praise, a hymn to the impending end of all things.
Twisting & turning, up & down, back & forth, entangling songs and parts evolve in a constant flow. "Trance of Death" is the most serious approach towards creating a soundtrack to Death. Join a 50 min ride through the deepest depths of ripping death, the wildest wastelands of abominable black and the darkest peaks of sinister rock. Or to be plain: on the A-side they kill, on the B-side you die. High-class songwriting skills, supremely possessed execution & performance and a top-notch production will catapult this album to one of the most signifying & relevant releases in 2017. Both immensely beautiful and intensely terrifying, this release will easily open the doors to the death metal pantheon for VENENUM.
