Reformation Concerts 1995-1998

Tour Notes
Following no less than three years of negotiations, the original band line-up reformed in 1995, to nothing less than ecstatic european media response, to headline the Waldrock Festival and the Dynamo Festival. Venom spent a large chunk of 1997 recording their new studio album, Cast In Stone, only interrupting to headline the Milwaukee Festival and Metal Invader Festival in Greece. The European dates supported by Hammerfall were cancelled due to Cronos having to undergo surgery for vocal nodes. The gig at With Full Force in Germany 1998 was to be the last gig with original drummer Abaddon behind the sticks.
