A live album, Eine Kleine Nachtmusikand a second live video, Alive in '85were released in Dunn then left the band to release a solo album. Their fifth album, 's Calm Before the Stormmoved away from Satanic themes in favour of " sword and sorcery " material.
Bray was left as the only group member, but he was able to convince Music for Nations for a deal to release a new Venom album on the Under One Flag label, using Deadline demo tracks which were recorded with previous line-ups but never released. Bray and Dolan wrote new material prior to Dunn's rejoining the band along with rhythm guitarist Al Barnes.
Barnes then left the band, and Steve White from Atomkraft was hired as his replacement. They released The Waste Lands inalso without success. Music for Nations refused to release any more Venom albums, so Dolan and Dunn quit, effectively disbanding Venom.
Bray continued to release compilation and live albums up to Nonetheless, Dolan, Dunn and Bray continued performing as a trio. InLant, Dunn and Bray reunited the "classic" line-up, beginning by headlining the Waldrock Festival on 24 June They recorded and self-released the Venom '96 EP with four re-recorded old tracks and one new song, resulting in a record deal with the SPV label.
An album, Cast in Stonewas next released insplit between two discs which was one of all new material and the other with re-recordings of popular early-'80s songs. By time arrived, it was time to supply SPV with the second album in their deal and internal conflicts between members of the band did not take long.
Eric Cook manager of Venom and Abaddon met each other and decided not to work with Cronos again. Abaddon wrote a letter to Cronos, with the intent of firing him out of the band. The letter written by the drummer communicates that the role of Cronos in the band and his service is no longer necessary and that he would carry on the band with Jeff "Mantas" Dunn and other people. At that point the record company furiously refused point blank to have a line-up of Venom who had no Cronos in the band.
This line-up released Resurrection in on SPV. However, in Dunn was next to leave the group and Lant replaced him with a US guitarist, Mike Hickey, who had already taken part in the release, "Calm Before the Storm," and Cronos solo albums. In lateVenom released a career-spanning four-disc box set, MMVwhich includes an exclusive mini-poster of the band's seven-date tour of Europe with Metallica and a page picture book, with interviews and pictures.
The set includes all their best-known songs, along with rarities like live tracks, demos and outtakes. This line-up of the band released the Metal Black album in In Mike Hickey left the band and guitarist Stuart "Rage" Dixon joined the band and this line-up released the record Hell the following year. After headlining festivals around the world for the next couple of years gaining in popularity, they released the Fallen Angels album on 28 November Venom released their fourteenth studio album, From the Very Depthson 27 January Mantas had not talked to Abaddon since So after thinking a bit, the two ex-Venom played along with Abaddon without having done any rehearsals for the show.
At this point the three brought together the Venom line-up of — under the name of Venom Inc. On 3 FebruaryVenom Inc.
The two singles off the album were "Dein Fleisch" and "Ave Satanas". After playing on the Blood Stained Earth Tourthe band continued to play until the beginning of Marchwhen at the end of the Australian tour, Abaddon asked for a break from the band's activity due to the birth of his daughter, Anja and agreed that he would be temporarily replaced by the band's front of house engineer Jeramie Kling for a period of one or two months until April to complete the European tour before he came back.
Meanwhile, Kling from The Absence took his place on the band's European tour and on recordings for the next record. As Venom were one of the first incarnations of extreme metalinfluencing many thrash metalblack metalAlbum) metaland other extreme metal bands,  their exact genre has been a topic of debate.
Venom have been labelled various genres by members of the press. Most prominent genres are black metalthrash metaland speed metal. Cronos insists on calling it black metal, without passing judgment on the genre that later would flourish in Norway:. LP one of the things when I first saw when I saw the Norwegian scene beginning in the early nineties. I thought: ok, I know they said Venom are an influence, etcetera, etcetera; let's see where these guys are coming from. And then when I started to read the lyrics, read the interviews and see they were kind of saying the same thing, but about their country, they had their religion, with all the Norse gods like Wodan and Thor.
And then all of the sudden the Christians LP in and they tried to destroy their religion. It's great that they stayed within in their country's beliefs for their lyrics as well. So, they're not the exactly the same things as Venom, they invented something of their own, which I think is fucking great Welcome to Hell influenced several later bands.
Venom would also be of extreme importance to the black metal scene and even the early death metal scene, with numerous bands copying styles, themes, LP, and imagery from the band, such as the Swiss band Hellhammer later to become Celtic Frostwhom also helped pioneer the genres. Music critic Bradley Torreano wrote that Venom "caught the attention of both metalheads and punksthe band was emulated by the former and turned into camp icons by the latter.
Although they did not make it to MTV 's top 10 heavy metal bands list, they were given an "honorable mention". Reflecting on Venom's 40th anniversary, Cronos said that without Venom, well known bands such as Metallica or Slayer wouldn't exist.
We were completely new; no one had heard anything like us. And of course, unbeknown to us, in America there were these kids who were listening to our records and then shaping what we were doing into their own thing.
Slayer would be an example of that. While many fans and musicians see Venom as an important band, their music has nonetheless been the subject of debate. The biggest criticism is Satanismwhich is the main driving force behind the band's music and album covers.
Cronos explained in that the reasoning behind it is for entertainment purposes. I've always been interested in Satanism, but we're entertainers, and we used subjects like Satanism and paganism to entertain people, like horror movies do. Listening to a Venom album is the same thing as watching an Evil Dead movie. I don't go around murdering virgins in my spare time. It's frustrating when people can't make that distinction; I mean, David Bowie 's not actually from Mars, is he?
But we were always being misquoted in the press. Venom admit to dancing around a campfire with virgins? Critic Eduardo Rivadavia of AllMusic writes that though Welcome to Hell influenced "literally thousands" of bands, Venom were "critically reviled".
