Interview With Nevermore

During the Power Of Metal Tour with Symphony X, Nevermore and Psychotic Waltz I had the change to sit down with Jeff Loomis of Nevermore fame. He turned out to be a very down to earth and downright funny conversationalist with some very sharp and witty answers from time to time. We talked about the whole Power Of Metal Tour, trading licks with Micheal Romeo (Symphony X), The Obsidian Conspiracy and his love for seventies music… Continue reading


Nevermore – This Godless Endeavor

Enemies Of Reality by Nevermore is somewhat saved by the remixing skills of Andy Sneap, but it’s by no means the band’s strongest release in their career. Nevermore had to prove themselves once again, when they released This Godless Endeavor. That album certainly made quite an impression on me at the time. Continue reading


Nevermore – The Politics Of Ecstasy

The Politics Of Ecstasy (1996) is Nevermore’s second full length album. It’s named after a book by Timothy Leary. It’s not the easiest album by the band to get into, but it’s vital to understand their evolution and growth. Let’s take a closer look. Continue reading


Nevermore – Dreaming Neon Black

My introduction to Nevermore was their Dreaming Neon Black album (1999). It’s a concept album of sorts, but as with many lyrics and stories by Warrel Dane the true meaning still eludes me. Let’s have a closer look at what the album is all about. Continue reading


Nevermore – Enemies Of Reality

Enemies Of Reality is arguably Nevermore’s most controversial effort, mainly due to the muddy production by Kelly Gray (Queensryche). At the time the band had many struggles with their record company, which shines through in the material of this album. Let’s take a closer look. Continue reading


Nevermore – Dead Heart In A Dead World

After a lot of touring for Dreaming Neon Black (1999) and the departure of second guitarist Tim Calvert, Nevermore decided to continue as a four-piece. The band started to work on a new album, entitled Dead Heart In A Dead World. This album put Jeff Loomis and Co firmly on the metal map, spawning many songs which are still on the Nevermore set list to this very day. Continue reading


Nevermore – The Obsidian Conspiracy

When you’re talking about quality, Nevermore is one of those bands who never fail to deliver. Their trademark sound, consisting of elements from progressive, heavy and thrash metal, is driven by the virtuoso guitar antics by Jeff Loomis and the theatrical vocal performance by Warrel Dane. Albums such as Dreaming Neon Black (1999), Dead Heart In A Dead World (2000) and This Godless Endeavor (2005) are often cited as their best works. Continue reading
