CO CREATOR OF THE BLACK METAL BAND VON

 

VENIEN is a Filipino American born writer, illustrator, musician, and co-creator of the band VON. In 1987, VENIEN created the band VON along with his band-mate Goat. In 1992, VON was disbanded until VENIEN and Goat reunited the band in 2009. VENIEN also created Von Records (2006-2019) and later vVurMzflessshhh Publishing (2014-Present) to release all VON and VENIEN music projects. The VON “Satanic Blood (7” Vinyl EP)” alongside the VENIEN “Tribal Blood (7” Vinyl Single)", were both released at the 2010 Armageddon Festival in London, UK. VENIEN & Goat reunited for their first & final performance as VON with support by Watain, The Devil's Blood, & various other bands.

In 2012, VENIEN recorded & released the long-awaited & first official full-length VON album entitled “Satanic Blood” on Von Records. To support the debut release, VON performed exclusive shows in Tempe (AZ), Los Angeles (CA), and Brooklyn (NY) with a brand new line-up. Following the debut release, VENIEN began to record & release what would become the final trilogy of full-length VON albums entitled "Dark Gods", with a European tour to support the first volume release in 2013. Under his newly formed publishing company "vVurMzflessshhh Publishing", the Dark Gods Comic Book Series was released periodically for 6 weeks between Dec 1st 2014 - Feb 16th 2015. This extremely limited release included special advance CD singles with tracks taken from the unreleased second volume off the Dark Gods Trilogy "Dark Gods: Birth of The Architects (Vol.II)" as well as b-side demos from the unreleased "Dark Gods: Ancient Blood (Vol.III)".

In July 2017, Von Records and vVurMzflessshhh Publishing released "Dark Gods: Birth of The Architects (Vol.II)" in their standard 12" CD Booklet Edition, as well as exclusive digital versions included with the comic book "Dark Gods: Book One (Re-Mastered and Re-Dux Editions)" and "Dark Gods: Birth of The Architects (Giclée Print Series)".

In addition to VENIEN's work on all the VON projects, there were various solo works released as digital singles and demos, all taken from his unfinished project titled "Black Coming of VENIEN". Among the first releases came the digital single "Mommy There Is Someone In The Basement" and the 7" Vinyl single "Tribal Blood". A series of digital demos were released including "Black Coming of VENIEN: Ritual Manifestation (Demo I)", "Black Coming of VENIEN: Schizophrenic Rage (Demo II)", "Black Coming of VENIEN: Lost Fragments (Demo III)", as well as the "Black Coming of VENIEN (Demo Collection)". In 2010. the first series of digital singles and demos were originally offered to online subscribers of Von Records (2006-2019).  Years later VENIEN would close Von Records and re-publish all works through vVurMzflessshhh Publishing (2014-Present). In 2017, VENIEN's publishing company vVurMzflessshhh Publishing released exclusive free downloads of the "Black Coming of VENIEN (Demo Collection)" with select merchandise including the "Black Coming of VENIEN (Giclée Print Series)" and "The Art of VENIEN (Sketchbook Series)".

In early 2017, VENIEN began a series of special exhibits under the banner "vVurMzflessshhh Publishing Presents The Art of VENIEN", taking place within comic conventions, festivals, and art expos inside the USA. VENIEN attends as an exhibitor/ publisher/ artist/ creator, releasing various published comic books, sketchbooks, art books/prints, albums, clothing, and various related merchandise. In 2019, VENIEN worked on various outside projects including album art for "Universal Death Church" by Lord Mantis, guest vocals on the single "Eye of The Quill" off the self-titled album by SUTEKH HEXEN, and cover illustrations for a self-published Lovecraftian comic book series entitled "Miskatonic High".
