It's strange, there is not an official statement from the band about this, and he is still listed as a member on their facebook.

https://www.facebook.com/pg/VenomIncOff ... e_internal

However, according to this report on the main site, he is not longer in the band. The link they provided is below, and it is literally just a screenshot someone made of a conversation with Demolition Man in which they asked if he is still in the band, and he said no.


I found this all very strange... the whole basis for this band was that it was the return of the power-trio: Demolition Man, Abbadon and Mantas. But now he's all of the sudden not in the band anymore, and they don't even say anything about it? If that's the case, why don't they just go back to the other band they had together? I loved their debut, but with Abbadon not in the band anymore, and them being kinda shady about it, it just feels weird. Just curious as to whether or not anyone has some insight on this.

the three original members of Venom hate each other. it's hardly news. they try to work things out from time to time, and for whatever reasons, but they don't get along...

Not sure but Abaddon recently got married and has a newborn baby, so I guess he’s pretty much needed elsewhere.

Odd - they seemed happy enough at Bloodstock this weekend ! I wonder if they just got sick of the sight of each other over the day / weekend ?

Because he always leaves....

Demo man and Mantas needs to get away from the whole "Venom" thing and start their own band with real musicians and just forget about Venom.....
