Biography

Seattle, Washington, United States (1990 – present)

Nevermore is an American band from Seattle, Washington, United States. Their precise musical style is debated by fans and critics alike. The band incorporates elements from styles such as doom, thrash, power, and 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 touring guitarist Jeff Loomis. In 1995 Nevermore released its first, self-titled, album through Century Media Records. This album received much attention and specialized review, as its release was followed by an European tour with Blind Guardian and a North American tour with Death, both internationally-renowned bands.

Second guitarist Pat O’Brien joined the band prior to the release of the “In Memory” EP, and also took part in the recording of the subsequent album “The Politics of Ecstasy”, both from 1996. O’Brien left Nevermore to play in Cannibal Corpse, and guitarist Tim Calvert, who had previously contributed to Nevermore through songwriting, replaced O’Brien as Nevermore’s guitarist.

    "Luckily saw them live before they split up." I ALMOST saw them live. Unfortunately, this whole break up thing happened 2 days before the concert. Haven't quite forgiven them for that one. Still, these guys were awesome so I'm hoping for a reunion one day. I'll listen to TGE until then. \\m/

    Ghost Ship Octavius got funded and will have Jeff Loomis among others. Hell, I see it as the spiritual successor of Nevermore, so I'm excited for it personally.

    I'm starting to become quite a big of a fan of theirs. TGE is untouchable, and I find overall their discography to be really high class stuff. I haven't really listened to S/T or Politics, but all other albums are quite amazing, with very little to no filler every single one of them.

    Not a big fan beyond Dreaming Neon Black. That album and prior are gold.
