Venomous Concept is an extremely fast punk band started by members of Napalm Death, Melvins and Brutal Truth. The name itself is a play on Poison Idea, whose intense, loud hardcore is one of their main influences, together with bands as Discharge and GISM. Venomous Concept is the brainchild of Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Lock Up), and Kevin Sharp (Brutal Truth). The idea was tossed around while Embury was in the states after touring Napalm Death’s “Order of the Leech” album. After the tour ended he visited some old friends.
