"Animus" is the debut album from the best UK Death Metal band of the last ten years by a solid mile. "Venom Prison" are taking the death metal world by storm at the moment and "Animus" perfectly encapsulates said storm in sonic form. Recorded by Tom Dring at Vagrant Recordings (Dragged Into Sunlight, Electric Wizard), Animus is 10 tracks of aural assaulting brutality. Led by frontwoman, L, Venom Prison tackles such subjects as social Darwinism, misogyny, rape culture and the rejection of God and religion. The artwork for Animus was created by German based legendary artist, Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sigh) who worked closely with Larissa to capture some of the themes of the album.
