Frontwoman Stephany Hugnin commented:

‘Venom’ is about helplessness and self-hatred, when nothing is controllable anymore, when we’ve decided to surrender to the poison controlling all our behaviours. The song tells of wanting to abandon ourselves to another reality, to forget the present, letting the destructive forces in our life settle in, deliberately. All this while realising that it’s wrong, and hating ourselves for letting it happen.

To musically match the darkness of the lyrics, ‘Venom’ relies on its dark and heavy atmosphere in place of instrumental technicality. Ultimately, the song is a mix of all our childhood influences, channelling the angry and sombre attitudes of the likes of Korn and Slipknot (Yes, we are 90’s kids).”
