December 2015 - M:PIRE OF EVIL Announce Worldwide Collaboration With ALPHA OMEGA Management
ALPHA OMEGA Management is thrilled to announce M:PIRE OF EVIL to its roster! M:PIRE OF EVIL was formed in 2010, by Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and Mantas, deciding that they needed to produce something befitting of their musical prowess. Something unashamedly heavy and without restraint; free of ego, deception and unreasonable behaviour – and fulfilling for them as musicians. The first release “Creatures of the Black” showed their roots by covering songs by great bands that influenced them to pick up their own instruments. 2011 saw the release of their debut “Hell To The Holy” which was an uncompromising mix of all styles of metal but fused into an album %100 their own. A single “Demone” followed and was pre the next studio album “Crucified” .The follow up album to their latest full length effort “Crucified” (2013), will be released in early 2016 , getting “M:Pire Unleashed” as a working title.

ALPHA OMEGA Management adds: Following to our recent announcement of VENOM Inc., today we have a double pleasure to announce also M:PIRE OF EVIL to our roster family, completing so the coalition of Venomous Empire! M:PIRE OF EVIL, formed in 2010 by Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and Mantas, and today with Francesco “Frullo” La Rosa on drums, the band is stronger than ever, bringing forward its unholy trinity! We can expect to have a very exciting year ahead! Stay tuned for next announcements!

April 2013 - Press Release: Deadline Records USA
On May 7, Deadline Music (a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records) will release CRUCIFIED by M:Pire of Evil, the thrash metal project by former Venom members  Mantas (guitar), Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan (vocals, bass), and ex-Throwdown drummer JXN. CRUCIFIED bulldozes through eleven tracks (including nine Venom favorites from the PRIME EVIL era), opening with the driving “Temples of Ice”  and not taking its foot off the gas through the closing beast, “Taking It All” (which includes the perfect anti- chant).  The riffs are dense and mighty, rhythms propulsive, and the vocals relentlessly intense.  The record takes on dystopian themes of destruction, evil, and corruption and in the case of pointed tracks like “Blackened Are The Priests,” all three. In 1979, guitarist Jeff Dunn took on the name Mantas and created a musical entity that would inspire an entire subgenre of metal.  Venom combined dark, heavy and loud with a proficiency that created history with two records, WELCOME TO HELL and BLACK METAL, that are considered the gold standard of thrash.  Built on this foundation, M:Pire of Evil formed in the U.K. in 2010.  Their debut record displayed musical integrity and prowess befitting of the legacy.  CRUCIFIED, MoE’s second full-length record, continues that legacy. CRUCIFIED will be in stores and online retailers for MSRP of $14.98.  The booklet includes art by Mantas, lyrics and band pics.

June 2012 - Press release from M-PIRE of EVIL
We are currently working on a new album, as yet it has no title but will feature around 10-12 trax...One brand new M-PIRE track and the others are re-recorded tracks from the Venom albums, Prime Evil, Temples of Ice and The Wastelands. These albums are under the control of Universal Music and as such are 'shelved' as a re-release of these albums would seem in conflict with the current Venom lineup and their releases, so M-PIRE have decided to take the best from all 3 releases and after consultation with the fans have compiled a list of tracks to re-record for a new album. This does not mean there will not be an all new M-PIRE of EVIL album of totally new songs, there will but this will be early 2013. This only means we will have an intrim album also. We would like to assure people of some things, this is NOT simply re-recording original songs for the sake of Money or anything else...this is simply because these albums are unavailable for purchase and if you are lucky enough to track one down they are overpriced, we want to address this first and also we feel that some good songs were lost because of lack of distribution, halting the releases and poor production values. We intend to correct all of these. The songs will feature in our live set for the fall tour. So far the basic tracks are being recorded and they sound fucking massive..true M-PIRE style. WE have selected songs we feel fit the M-PIRE style and are very happy JAXN will make his recorded debut with the M-PIRE! The Release is planned for completion by August and will go out September/October..
M-PIRE of EVIL are currently looking over footage for compiling a LIVE in 2012 DVD, as yet untitled, ...the DVD will have special features and will be available early 2013.
The M-PIRE are currently looking towards the fall tour..Looking at dates in the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru, Mexico, Ecuador, Chilli, USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.....then on to Europe..
M-PIRE of EVIL would like to thank everyone at Muskel Rock Sweden for an amazing time and show. Despite blowing up the PA and the rain, the organizers were amazing and very kind and the tech team superb and got everything up and running again in record time. The fans were the coolest and the band had great fun. Big shout out to the most vocal audience so far... when the PA was lost, using only backline and the fans doing all the singing, a very special, In League With Satan was performed... ALL HAIL Sweden!!

July 2011 - EP UPDATE
M-PIRE of EVIL are in the final stages of mixing the CREATURES OF THE BLACK ep. More details (and that all important release date) will soon be revealed.
Official statement from the band is as follows: We have decided to change our name. It was brought to our attention that a band who named themselves after our 6th Venom album, Prime Evil had decided to get back together after we had announced our intentions. We had already signed our deal with Scarlet Records and had appearences booked but we have decided to cancel those shows as our belief is that EVERY band should have a chance and we do not wish to exclude anyone so we have made this change. We apologise to the Venoms Legions and fans who chose our name but we hope you support this/our decision...... and so....
Welcome to the M-PIRE of EVIL!
M-PIRE of EVIL , the new band formed by former Venom members Jeff "Mantas" Dunn (guitar), Tony "The Demolition Man" Dolan (bass, vocals) and Antony "Antton" Lant (drums), have signed a deal with Scarlet Records. This summer will see the release of the mini album 'The Creatures Of The Black', which features 4 cover versions of songs that influenced them to begin their very own metal journeys ('Exciter' by Judas Priest, 'God Of Thunder' by Kiss, 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be' by AC/DC and 'Motörhead' by Motörhead) plus 2 brand new M-PIRE of EVIL tracks, 'The Creatures Of The Black' and 'Reptile'. The mini album is going to anticipate MPIRE of EVIL's debut album, which will be out sometime around September/October 2011. As appearences are being booked now a full tour is preparing for 2012. Check out all the updates on www.scarletrecords.it and www.mpireofevil.eu. All Hail!
