Venom_Fallen_AngelsLucky album 13 from the kings of black metal - Venom, and Darrel Sutton is something he is not very often...he's actually "lost for words". No, his teacher hasn't caught him masturbating underneath the desk; he's simply been blown away by Cronos and crew's latest opus. With his knee length Doc Martens very much out of the closet Sutton's about to lay down his soul to the gods rock 'n' roll. You fancy joining him?

This is yet another must-read UR interview exclusive as Ben Hughes catches up with the band's frontman Donal Finn......

AC_ThmbThis time last year URHQ was buzzing at the prospect of us not only interviewing the king of L.A. shock rock Mr Lizzy Borden, but also seeing his band perform live at the fourth annual Hard Rock Hell festival here in the UK.
