Texas occult metal band VENOMOUS MAXIMUS will release its new album "Beg Upon The Light" on February 4, 2013 via Occulture Records. The CD was recorded at Origin Sound in Houston with a headspace described as "somewhere between a Alejandro Jodorowsky film and a New Orleans voodoo den."
"Beg Upon The Light"'s striking cover art was designed by artist Dann Miller and builds on the band's ever-evolving thematic that involves, among other things, magic, alchemy, extra-sensory perception and astrology; wide-eyed themes that lay "on the outermost fringe of accepted forms of knowledge and discourse."
VENOMOUS MAXIMUS is one of the most successful metal bands to emerge from Houston in years, beloved of headbangers and headbanging blogs from across the U.S. and points beyond (maybe even astronauts). Since its formation in 2010, the group has become the go-to metal band in the country's third-largest city, winning back-to-back titles at the Houston Press Music Awards as the Space City's "Best Metal Band" and has shared the stage with MASTODON, PENTAGRAM, SAINT VITUS, THE SWORD, GRAVEYARD and more.
