Cronos - Venom (1998) Retail CD
Death Metal/ Black Metal
This redundant release from former Venom frontman Cronos finds the diabolical bass wrecker revisiting the glory of the past and trying to beat some life into the present. Consisting of re-recorded versions of songs from his previous solo albums and assorted Venom classics, this cynical compilation offers precious little substance. Considering that the Venom catalog remains in print and that numerous packages of the band's "hits" were made available throughout the 1990s, these re-recordings smack of creative burnout. Cronos' new band is far more technically adept than the clumsy (yet compellingmore…) roar that made Venom legendary, but virtuosity applied to songs like "1000 Days in Sodom" and "Satanachist" completely misses the point. The solo material can't live up to the cartoonish lunacy of the classic tracks, though "Lost and Found" (a tribute to the Hellraiser film series) and the lusty "Know Evil" come close. Those who appreciate the blustery Spinal Tap-ish excesses of Venom won't be too impressed with the rather routine speed metal of the newer songs, and those who have been following Cronos' solo career all along will already own the albums upon which these tunes originally appeared. Only the most faithful collectors will want Venom for the inclusion of three tracks from an "upcoming" Cronos album (Triumvirate) that was never commercially released. Of course, this type of rabid Venom fan is likely to want anything remotely connected to the band and would buy the album regardless of quality; clearly, this is the audience that Cronos was targeting.
