Acid Queen / Bursting Out always hit harder than Die Hard for me. If not two of my fave Venom tracks. This 12" had a really great cut and always sounded hard edged, loud and powerful. Not sure if they genuinely had a deeper cut, short tracks so lots of space tor the groove pitch. Or just perception and the fact I played 'em louder than most!

Cronos' bass really thunders and growls like on no other Venom mix. Still my favourite bass sound of all time.

Proper wicked underated tracks.
