Reuniting with the same intensity, chemistry, and passion displayed by a divorced couple chatting while picking up their children from a neutral location, Venom offers definitive proof that an all star lineup can mean absolutely nothing. Sometimes people wonder how bad music can really be when Album) is produced fine and everyone pretty much knows how to play their instruments - this is the answer.
While production and performance traits are typically regarded as strengths, they only make things worse here by allowing Venom to more clearly convey how awful the album is.
As the band goes through the motions of making music, everything becomes so predictable that you essentially suffer through the entire faux-Venom album just by hearing the first note. Similar to post-traumatic stress syndrome. This process would have meant that everyone was on the same page musically, so the band had to devolve into predictable, pathetic, and poppy song structures and rock pastiches. Now, no one can accuse Venom of having ever been a technical band.
This album is a shamefully bald attempt to go in a more commercial route to become popular again. On each song you can tell which small bit of crap you are supposed to remember and shout to your headbanger friends. Interviews from around the time even show Abaddon citing Marilyn Manson as an influence. There is a rocky path for a band once on the extreme end of metal trying to become relevant again as quickly and effortlessly as possible.
Clean intro? Check, some other shitty song. Each one of these intros is completely uninspired and could have been taken from a small cheap sound library and pasted before the songs that also might themselves be compiled from a rotten sound library. One interesting thing is how parts of the album manage to stick out as particularly musically repulsive in an album that has so little musical merit.
In fact, the especially awful parts are the only thing clearly showing that the rest of the album is a step above worthlessness. That would be fitting too, because this release deserves to be unknown. Venom, one of those legendary bands from United Kingdom. The most interesting fact about that band is that they have created the word well, compound word : black metal.
He gives us some tribal drum at the beginning with weird ambient in the middle of the sound, something we've never heard from the other album. Swarm, interesting song and original too with some Egyptian whispering behind a little electronic drum beat mixed with some winds and the song ends with an incredible solitary swell of ambience which gives the album that punch of darkness.
The drumming style of Abaddon hasn't changed over the years and the same goes for Cronos with his vocals, why change something which already works well. Track to listen: ALL. Wow, what happened to Venom? This album was supposed to be a reunion of the classic line-up and thus a return to the classic days of Welcome to Hell, alas it seems that by this point Venom just don't have it in them anymore.
There is absolutely no spirit or enthusiasm on this album at all, not a trace. The whole band just sound like they don't want to be there and don't care about the music they're recording at all.
Back in their early Destroyed And Damned - Venom (8) - Cast In Stone (CD a lot of people didn't like them because they demphasized technicality and clarity in favour of wild enthusiasm and crude catchiness, but here they have none of that. Sure, it really isn't THAT different from vintage Venom, soundwise, but it just sounds like the Possessed album regurgitated over again, with whatever little charm that LP had completely sucked out. I can't really put my finger on why the songwriting is so weak other than maybe they just didn't put as much effort in, or they had simply ran out of juice by this point.
Maybe they favoured mid-paced songs more than faster monsters like Witching Hour and Black Metal, or maybe the riffs are just too bland and similiar, I don't know. Cronos has a bit more of a harder snarl to his voice, but it doesn't sound genuine at all, there's nothing as wicked as "bloodluuuuuuuuust" or that wicked snarl thing at the beginning of 'Teacher's Pet'. This album's simply boring and even though it's no offensive it does absolutely nothing and goes on way too long.
Only recommended to completists, this album does nothing but prove that UK black metal of the 90s sucks, and they should have broke up when Mantas left after Possessed. They kicked off the re-union with a killer tour with Slayer and the band introduced a good new song called The Evil One.
This time however the short running time is for the listener as the lame song is over with rather fast. After Bleeding comes the real shocker, a song called Destroyed and Damned.
The first half of this song actually played off as a balled. What the fuck!? Venom playing a ballad? Album), sort of as half way through it kicks into a Destroyed And Damned - Venom (8) - Cast In Stone (CD metal assault. Good song and an interesting experiment for the band. The next track Doomus Mundi would also be an experimental song. This time it has the band experiment with industrial sounds. This is no doubt the result of Abaddon as he left the band after this album to start his solo Industrial band.
He actually remade the song for his solo album I Am Legion except the song was re-titled Hollow Voices. Every song after that is basically filler. Another problem with the album is the production.
The production just sounds half-assed as if they wanted to get this album recorded and releases as fast as possible. Is this an attempt to make up for the lacks of the new album itself or is it just the band rewarding their die hard fans? The more I listen to the album, the more I lean towards the first part of the question.
Thankfully Venom returned without Abaddon in to record the kickass album Resurrection which makes me a little more forgiving on Cast in Stone. Well they got back together, the classic lineup, and put together 14 songs for Cast in Stone. Now I always get a bad impression when a metal band has more than 10 songs, because that usually means filler. Well I was right to think that.
This is a tad bit slower more brutal riffage. Is this really the same production team as back in the day for Welcome to Hell??
This production sounds awesome. The sound is mammoth like and so is the song writing. But another thing redeemable about the album is its diversity. Right from the beginning that guitar opening just reels you in for a 3 minute midtempo crusher. Evil One pretty much gives you a definite feel for the album, Destroyed And Damned - Venom (8) - Cast In Stone (CD.
Destroyed and Damned starts out…. It has some emotive guitar work with a somber spoken part. It seems almost like a depressive ballad until about 2 minutes into it and it becomes an extremely heavy slow song. All Devils Eve 4. Bleeding 5.
