Venomous Maximus Prepare for the Coming of the Firewalker

If there's a more hotly anticipated album release from a Houston band penciled in for this year than Venomous Maximus' Firewalker, you can bet that it ain't gonna rock nearly as hard. The local metal faves have been working on new music since last year, doling out bits and pieces of the record at gigs near and far. It's safe to say that fans of the group are way past ready to add the new disc (and its sure-to-be-sweet album cover) to their vinyl collections. So where is it?

It's almost done, swears guitarist Christian Larson, and it's coming soon.

"It's being mixed now," he says. "It should be done, mixed and mastered in two weeks, I'm hoping."

Two weeks? That's not so long! Excellent. So, when's it coming out? Well... no one really knows yet.
