NEVERMORE picture
Nevermore is an American metal act from Seattle, Washington. Their precise musical style is debated by fans and critics alike. The band incorporates elements from styles such as Doom, Thrash, Power, and progressive metal into their songs, and also makes use of acoustic guitars and a wide range of vocal styles.

They started in the beginning of the 1990s, when the band Sanctuary was pressured by its recording label to change its musical style, switching from heavy metal to grunge, which was obtaining mainstream success at the time due to bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Two members of the band, vocalist Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard, didn't agree with the change and thus proceeded to create a project of their own. Nevermore.

By the end of 1994, the band assumed a stable line-up, which saw the additions of drummer Van Williams and former Sanctuary

NEVERMORE Dreaming Neon Black

Album · 1999 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Dreaming Neon Black" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US, Seattle based metal act Nevermore. The album was released through Century Media Records in January 1999. "Dreaming Neon Black" is a concept album based on lead vocalist Warrel Dane´s personal experience of losing a girlfriend to a religious cult and never hearing from her again. I remember reading an interview from that time, where Dane told that he had nightmares where he saw her drown, and that inspired him to write the lyrics for "Dreaming Neon Black". The concept of the album is only losely based on Dane´s experiences though and in reality tells a story of a man slowly going insane after losing his loved one. The lyrics are spiced up with social, religious, and political issues (which is not unusual for Nevermore), but they´re not dominant themes on this particular release.

Since the release of "The Politics of Ecstasy (1996)" guitarist Pat O'Brien left to join Cannibal Corpse and the band enlisted Curran Murphy (Shatter Messiah) as a touring guitarist for the tour supporting "The Politics of Ecstasy (1996)". Before the recording of "Dreaming Neon Black" guitarist Tim Calvert (Forbidden) joined on a permanent basis, making Nevermore a five-piece again. His tenure would be brief though as he departed again after the tour supporting the album.

Musically Nevermore took a gigant step in a heavier and more technically challenging US power/thrash direction with "The Politics of Ecstasy (1996)" and to some extent that tendency is continued on "Dreaming Neon Black", which in many ways is an even darker and heavier release than it´s predecessor. It´s a more varied release than the predecessor though also featuring more clean/acoustic guitar sections, more melody, and of course the lyrical concept which runs through the entire album.

Tracks like "The Death of Passion", "The Fault of the Flesh" and "Poison Godmachine" are absolutely scorching, featuring extremely fast riffs, and technically challenging drumming, but as mentioned the material is varied and you´ll find tracks like the semi-progressive epic power ballad type title track, the heavy mid-paced "Deconstruction", and the dark and atmospheric "All Play Dead" and "Cenotaph" on the album too. The variation is predominantly a strength and it keeps the 13 track, 66:05 minutes long album interesting throughout. To my ears some tracks are however a bit sub par to the best material on the album and in that respect "Dreaming Neon Black" isn´t a 100% perfect release. Especially "Deconstruction", which is a bit too long, and songwriting wise not especially adventurous, and "The Lotus Eaters", which has never left much of an impression on me, fit into that catagory. The two closing tracks, "No More Will", which features a messy structure, and the stripped down ballad "Forever", are also quality wise in that catagory. The high quality of the rest of the material (and it´s not like the above mentioned tracks aren´t of great quality, they are just not as great as the rest) make up for it though and there are both enough jaw dropping moments and stunning melodies on the album to warrant calling this a high quality release.

The musicianship are as always an asset on "Dreaming Neon Black". Nevermore are all highly skilled musicians and especially lead vocalist Warrel Dane and guitarist Jeff Loomis stand out for their brilliant performances on this album. It´s one of Warrel Dane´s most varied and memorable vocal performances (although he always delivers high quality performances) and Jeff Loomis as always just stands above the rest when it comes to guitarists. He is positively on fire on this album, shredding, bending, playing fast, playing melodic, distorted/acoustic and everything in between. I´d especially mention his performance on "I Am the Dog" as very original sounding. The rest of the band are very well playing too and deserve a mention too. Van Williams is both a powerful and adventurous drummer, who is able to drive the music forward in an aggressive manner, yet play more subtle when that is called for (his percussive playing on "Cenotaph" is an example of the latter). Jim Sheppard´s bass is pretty high in the mix, and it´s great that the listener is allowed to hear what a great player he is. Tim Calvert mostly plays rhythm guitars on the album, but judging from what is being played, he is a very capable guitarist.

The Neil Kernon sound production is detailed, powerful, dark and heavy. As mentioned the bass is placed pretty high in the mix, and as a result "Dreaming Neon Black" is probably Nevermore´s heaviest sounding album. So almost everything works really well on the album from production, to skilled musicians playing at the top of their game, to predominantly brilliant songwriting and a 4.5 star (90%) rating is fully deserved.

"The Year of the Voyager" is a double disc, 2 hours long live album release by US power/thrash metal act Nevermore. The album was released through Century Media Records in October 2008. "The Year of the Voyager" is available in a limited-edition 2DVD+2CD version, a standard 2DVD version, a standard 2CD version and limited 3LP version. The album features a full live show recorded October 11, 2006 at The Zeche Club in Bochum, Germany. It´s the same show that is featured on the DVD (plus some extra material from a couple of other shows from the tour supporting "This Godless Endeavor (2005)".

There´s no questioning that this was exactly the right moment to record a Nevermore live album. Commercially and artistically they were at their peak and for the first time in years they had a stable second guitarist in Steve Smyth (that relationship would soon end too though). The band are a very well playing and tight unit and to top it off lead vocalist Warrel Dane delivers a strong, attitude filled and commanding performance. That man has the pipes and the skills to use them. Not all vocalists can deliver on stage, but Warrel Dane is on fire...

Musically we´re treated to US power/thrash metal of the highest caliber. Nevermore were always in a league of their own and listening to this concert which includes tracks from all their studio albums up until then, it once again becomes clear why that is. It´s a combination of high quality songwriting, a distinct sounding lead vocalist, a virtuoso lead guitarist (on this album two) and a tight and great playing rythm section.

It can always be argued if the setlist includes the right tracks, but personally I think the 19 tracks on "The Year of the Voyager" do a good job of representing Nevermore and their discography up until then. We´re both presented to (at the time) new tracks like "Final Product", "My Acid Words", "Born", "Sentient 6" and the almost 10 minutes long "This Godless Endeavor", as well as older "classics" like the "What Tomorrow Knows / Garden of Grey" medley, "Matricide" and "Next in Line", but the intermediate albums are also all well represented on "The Year of the Voyager". Highlights include "The Politics of Ecstasy", "Inside Four Walls" and "The Learning", but almost any track off the album could have been mentioned in the same breath. The only track that I think is a bit questionable is "Dreaming Neon Black". In the studio version it´s of course a fantastic track, but it´s also layered with multible guitars, and it´s like something is missing from the live version, as the band can´t fully replicate the rather complex studio arrangement. It´s a minor issue though and overall the track works fine, but I did notice this as a slight negative.

The sound production is very well sounding and everything is audible in the mix. So all in all "The Year of the Voyager" is a very worthwhile live album by Nevermore. There are also enough audience participation (singing, clapping, shouting) and communication between Warrel Dane and the audience between the tracks, to make "The Year of the Voyager" sound like a "real" live recording. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

The Angry Scotsman
Nevermore's second best album

"Dead Heart in a Dead World" is another great output by the Seattle prog metal band. A tad overlooked/underrated by Nevermore fans I was never sure why until many listens, when I realized while absolutely Nevermore style, it is a bit different from most of their work. It has all we want from them but is overall a bit less intense, more progressive, and melodic than a lot of their discog. Their progressive songs do have the heavy tremolo riffing, shred solos and thrashiness Nevermore fans crave, but not to much. This is in stark contrast to their upcoming album which is a flat out face melting speed fest.

The album starts out with "Narcosynthesis" which is a fairly standard but pretty decent Nevermore song. "We Disintegrate" is a slower, heavy song with some wonderful harmonies. "Inside Four Walls" is a high point of the album.

A mid tempo, thrashy song about the US government and injustice of the prison system, specifically drug law. About "a friend" who was "taken away" the song has some of my favorite lyrics by the band with lines such as: "Can anyone tell me why violent crime means far less time?" the chorus "Inside four walls my friend, they took away your freedom, and the pigs still preach their lies" and an interlude bluntly stating that drug offenders in the US serve more time than rapists, child molesters and murderers, asking is this American way? Ends on a powerful note, with Dane yelling out "they took away your freedom, but they'll never take your mind!"

"Evolution 169" is a very slow, melodic song and a nice change of pace. "The River Dragon has Come" is perhaps my favorite on the album, a progressive song with some awesome writing, it's packed with great riffs, powerful solos, lots of variation and a great structure. Another powerful ending, going with the highest wails I've heard Dane reach! Awesome song.

"The Heart Collecter" is another slow, heavy song that is packed with emotion, very moving song. Followed by the speed laden "Engines of Hate" and an intriguing cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" which is the most intense song on the album. "Insignificant" is another slower song which leads to the powerful "Believe in Nothing" featuring some normal singing, soaring vocals and a scathing critique of religion, but done in that tasteful Nevermore way, with great lyrics that elude so many metal bands.

The album ends with the title song, a haunting yet beautiful guitar melody, static and chilling lyrics burst into an awesome and crazy song. Not much more can be said, this is perhaps the bands most balanced album. Featuring some of it all: epic riffing, mind blowing guitar solos and power metal movement but also lots of slower stuff and some of the most powerful and emotional music the band has written. There's no bad song though "We Disintegrate" is probably the weakest, while "The River Dragon has Come", "The Sound of Silence" and "Believe in Nothing" are the standouts.

Great Album Four and a Half Stars

The Angry Scotsman
Nevermore's Magnum Opus

This album is the bands greatest work, and one of the best metal albums I've encountered. Got this album when it came out in 2005 and it was the first time I heard the name Nevermore. I was blown away. The music floored me, and this was also one of my earliest introductions to progressive metal, at a time when I was solely a thrash and death metal head. "This Godless Endeavor" had a major impact on me personally and is an amazing album.

This album is an amalgam of all the band's styles, in a perfectly blended and composed masterpiece. Dubbed "progressive power neo-classical thrash metal" by some of us, this album has it all, but never sounds crammed together or sounds off. It all works together seamlessly, built around lightning fast and crazy guitar work, intense drumming and Dane's unique vocals, (which take on an even more hard edge here and showcase some dark, lower register tones). All of it tempered with progressive song writing and sprinkled with neo classical shred solos. The drumming is amazing, largely European power style chains of double bass, (sometimes at breakneck speed) but also with lots of thrash and healthy heaps of blast beats! Van Williams puts on a good show of extreme drumming, but also great variation. Sometimes melodic, technical, exotic, off tempo, often changing on a dime and always fitting of the music. To this day, one of my favorite drumming performances.

The lyrics are dark: often bleak and bitter criticisms of the media, technology, a drugged up (erm medicated) society, government, religion and humanity in general. Thankfully they are never corny or come off as angry tirades. Though anger is deeply flowing, it's tempered with intriguing vocabulary, (this is metal after all) and vague stanzas that require some thought. Nice change from the unrestrained and amateurish anger often hurled at us from metal bands. "Sentient 6" is about some type of AI being designated to destroy humanity but grows conflicting feelings of inspiration and contempt for humanity. "My Acid Words" ends on a powerful note with Dane bellowing out "It's a one way ride and there's nothing you can do! Not even suicide or my acid words can teach you, anything useful..." One of the more crushing parts of the album.

Every song is good, so I will just say listen to the album. In fact, every song is great, with "Bittersweet Feast" being a tad weaker than the rest. Now it is a good song, but just not quite the standard of the rest. Besides that song, this is a truly perfect album, and without it this would be flawless, probably getting a spot on my mantle of 6 Star Albums.

Besides each song being great, they are each unique and the album has good flow, starting off intense before moving into a more mellow, progressive section and rising back up to bludgeon back home. The album ends with the 9 minute prog metal piece "This Godless Endeavor" that is one of my all time favorite songs.

It's always been my opinion that the best bands are those who truly progress, maintaining but taking steps forward tweaking and refining, rather than "experimenting" by taking wild stabs in the dark or risky and drastic swings. The former is what Nevermore has done culminating in this brilliant piece of progressive metal.

"Nevermore" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by US, Seattle based metal act Nevermore. The album was released in January 1995 by Century Media Records. Nevermore was founded on the ashes of the legendary US power metal act Sanctuary. Sanctuary released two albums that are arguably some of the most essential US power metal albums released in the late eighties/early nineties in "Refuge Denied (1987)" and "Into The Mirror Black (1990)". The band disbanded in 1991 because of internal strife among the members on the future musical direction of Sanctuary. Apparently some members wanted to pursue a new more alternative rock direction while especially lead vocalist Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard wanted Sanctuary to continue in the US power metal style. After Sanctuary split-up, Warrel Dane and Jim Sheppard founded Nevermore with guitarist Jeff Loomis, who had very briefly been a member of Sanctuary before they disbanded. Various drummers played with the band, who worked daytime jobs and recorded quite a few demos in the years 1991 - 1995 before they settled on Van Williams as their drummer. The album is supposedly compiled from two different demo sessions with producer Neil Kernon and the versions on this album are the same as the versions on the two demos. They have been re-mastered for this release though. The fact that the tracks are recorded during two different sessions is also apparent as Mark Arrington plays the drums on 4 tracks while Van Williams plays the drums on the remaining 4 tracks.

People who are familiar with Sanctuary, know that they played a style of US power metal that featured thrash metal elements too. The music on "Nevermore" is actually quite a natural continuation of that style but with some adjustments. Nevermore play an even heavier and darker US power metal/thrash metal style than was the case with Sanctuary (which in their time definitely were one of the most heavy US power metal acts out there). A large part of the reason for this is the addition of Jeff Loomis who already this early in the band´s career showed great promise. He possesses equal amounts of melodic sensibility and technical capability. He would develop an even more personal and unique guitar playing style on later album releases, but his playing and composing on this album is a great part of why the music sounds the way it does. Another defining factor is of course the powerful and paatos filled vocals by Warrel Dane. In his Sanctuary days he mostly sang in his screaming high pitched vocal style, but on this album he varies his vocal style much more and also sings both low- and mid register styled vocals. A positive development to my ears.

The fact that the tracks were recorded in two different sessions over the course of a year does have an impact on the consistency of the material. The sound production could have been better and while the album isn´t as such badly produced I sometimes find the album a bit strenuous to get through because of the sound. There certainly is a professional "demo" sound quality to the album. The quality of the material also varies some. While all tracks are well written, tracks like the ultra heavy "What Tomorrow Knows", the intriguing "C.B.F." and the power ballad "The Sanity Assassin" stand above the rest in quality and memorability. Interestingly enough they are the first three tracks on the album. It´s like the longer you get into the album the more the quality of the material drops and by the time you reach the two closing tracks "Timothy Leary" and "Godmoney", we´re on a pretty standard songwriting level. Overall I´d still call "Nevermore" a high quality release although it is a slightly bumpy start to Nevermore´s recording career. A solid 3.5 star rating is deserved.

We´ve recently had this debate among the collabs and since most agreed to keep them in Power Metal that´s where they will stay for now. You´re always welcome to start a thread in the forum suggesting a move, if you want to hear other people´s opinions.
