Double slimline jewel case. The full title is 'From Heaven To The Unknown'.
Terrible Production, Horrible Musicianship, Great Fun

"Venom were the pioneers of extreme metal and the roads cleared by pioneers are never smooth. Consider Venom the axes and squeaky wagonwheels forging their way through the uncharted terrain of black metal. Most of the tunes here sound like they were recorded in a garage on a compact office-type cassette recorder. And Cronos, Mantas and Abaddon as musicians will never be confused with Rob Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen and Dave Lombardo. But together the recordings have a lot of (evil) spirit (boo!) and the cartoonish lyrics are great. Venom is classic!"

"this is a really good band. Cronos has such a great voice. The band can really play. if you want to listen to venom i would suggest getting this cd or one of there older ones first (especially if you have never heard them) such as: welcome to hell, black metal, at war with satan, and in league with satan. well in case you didnt know this band's music is black metal so that means it has to do with satanic lyrics. if that doesnt offend you then go for it. Venom is raw and fast. so yeah i would really recommend venom."
