Cast in Stone is the ninth album by heavy metal band Venom, and also their first album in 12 years to feature the original lineup. Recorded at Lartington Hall Studios near Barnard Castle, it was released on SPV/Steamhammer in 1997.[3] It is the last Venom album to feature Abaddon on drums.

Critical reception[edit]

"Cast in Stone is heavier than Metallica and more tuneful than Pantera," according to Vox. "A surprisingly listenable album that's maybe more old school metal than thrash, but aims a swift kick between the legs and truly delivers," concludes reviewer Jerry Ewing, giving the album 3 stars out of five.
