Venom Inc's Tony Dolan launches all-star charity project

Venom Inc bassist/vocalist Tony Dolan alongside Francesco Conte of Neromega/Spiritual Front have together launched a new side project, SABBATONERO with a tribute album to Black Sabbath entitled L'Uomo Di Ferro, featuring a roll call of international artists and musicians, including Marty Friedman, James Murphy (ex Death, Obituary and Disincarnate), Mantas (Venom Inc.) and Snowy Shaw (ex King Diamond, Dream Evil).

The album will soon be available on CD via Italy's Time To Kill Records and all the funds raised will go to front line Covid workers in Italy, one of the worst-hit countries on mainland Europe.
