We can't believe we spaced on this, seeing as Venom frontman Cronos has been known to show up at Spinelli's old LasagnaFarm project from time to time. But if you needed further proof about the supremacy of the Manta, please note that Venom, who likely were attempting to be the scariest band in the world, manned their guitar chair with a bloke who called himself "Mantas" for a period of 25 years. One Manta may be poop-yer-pants awesome, but to really welcome the kids to hell, you need a bunch of 'em. Yep.
