VENERA is not a space probe from the former Sowjet Union but a fivepiece Post-Hardcore-Band from Stuttgart, Germany, although they named themselves after their fascination for aerospace. Nevertheless, their missions are quite comparable: A breakthrough is to be achieved driven by heavily power. True to the motto – The Sky is Not The Limit!
So to say, you could speak of a promising pilot project as their demo was launched in Dezember 2015 including a first banger with “Ginger“, which lets you think of giants of their genre like A Day To Remember.
A comprehensive trial period should follow with tons of shows on the stages of the clubs and festivals in southern Germany. Meanwhile, Claudio (Vocals), Valentin (Guitar), Heike (Guitar), Oliver (Bass) and Simon (Drums) were spending every spare minute in rehearsals to get the sound of VENERA to where it is now. Catchy melodies along with energetic hooks and mixed with a well dosed portion of heaviness results in an explosive fuel in order to convey one thing the most – Enjoying life to its fullest!
first EP “Daydreamer”
Encouraged by blood, sweat and compassion, they decided to don’t make any compromise in recording their Debut EP “Daydreamer“. Under the guidance of the much talented producer Alex Adelhart (e.g. We Set The Sun, Coldburn) at Ghost City Recordings near to Nuremberg, Germany, the songs were being polished to a high gloss. A first milestone has been set.
The outcome are six songs, every one of them more killer than filler with a constant drive to it and lots of dynamics, leading the listener to a breathtaking experience. This wide range of sound is not only likely to the Hardcore Kids, but for everyone calling rock music their home.
The first single release “Nimbus“ premiered on the 7th January as their first music video on PitCam.tv. The Debut EP “Daydreamer“ will be released digitally worldwide on the 9th February 2018.
