Venom Inc, the version of legendary metal band Venom with Mantas and Abaddon (but not Cronos), began their tour with Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust and The Convalescence in Philly on Friday (9/1) and hit NYC's Gramercy Theatre on Saturday (9/2). They played tons of early classics, like "Sons of Satan," "Witching Hour," "Welcome to Hell," "Black Metal," "Leave Me In Hell," "Don't Burn the Witch," and more, and they sounded great. Goatwhore sounded great too, though unfortunately we missed the other two openers.

Pictures of Venom Inc and Goatwhore are in the gallery above. Check out Venom Inc's setlist and a video below.

UPDATE: When the tour ends, all four bands will return to NYC for a smaller show here at Saint Vitus on 10/3.
