Why I Love... Venom by Chris Fehn, Slipknot
Slipknot's percussive Pinocchio hails the hellacious, game-changing Geordies.
THEY OPENED THE GATES OF HELL
“The first time I heard Venom I was at my brother’s friend’s house. I don’t necessarily think that I even heard what was going on, but the music was on vinyl... I remember seeing the goat on the label spinning. I was like, ‘Holy shit! This is fucking evil!’ I didn’t even know what was going on. I was completely blown away by that. You’ve got to understand where I come from... I lived in the Bible Belt, you know what I mean? So I was brought up in the church, and to see something like that was fucking frightening, dude. I couldn’t believe it was happening.”
