Houston's Venomous Maximus gurgles with the sounds of proto-metal gods Pentagram and Blue Cheer as well as new-school leaders like High on Fire. The headspace of this band falls somewhere between a Alejandro Jodorowsky film and a New Orleans voodoo den. Hail Satan and pass the chicken feet.
"When I first saw the name of the band I was expecting something much different. Heavy, slow, dreadful doom perhaps. But as I delved into Houston's Venomous Maximus a little more, I realized that these guys have a really awesome vibe. Combining hair-raising riffs, a skull-crushing gallop a la The Sword, and a somewhat retro feel, the band's bite will no doubt poison your soul and mystify your mind. Check them out!"
