Impellitteri‘s latest studio album, “Venom”, was released on April 17th. 2015 in Europe and April 21 in North America.

“Venom” is described in a press release as “a record filled with addictive and memorable riffs, guitar solos that feature Chris Impellitteri’s blistering shredding technique coupled with strong melody and taste. Rob Rock‘s vocals are mesmerizing, melodic, and will make the listener sing along with each song long after the record is over. Lastly, the band boggles the mind with brutal drumming (featuring John Dette, formerly of Testament, Slayer etc.) filled with speed and groove and beastly bass playing (courtesy of James Pulli) that supportsImpellitteri‘s sonic madness! The result is a record that excites and musically satisfy every Metal and Rock fan, and every musician around the world. To add to their quest, Impellitteri also wanted to create music that would take the listener on a musical journey thru different time periods of metal and rock.”
