:agreed:

This is approximately what they looked like on Sunday at the Troc. Great shots of Attila's C7 for those of you curious about that.

I really found myself liking this song. Very well written, tasteful solo, catchy and powerful lyrics. I might be messing the story up, but Warrel explained that he wrote it about a friend (Jeff something if I recall) who committed suicide a few years ago, and that he wrote it for the guy's mother. The lyrics are about him wondering whether he'll meet God.

It's pretty awesome.

You know, even Warrell's vocals have begun to grow on me lately. They're one of a handful of metal bands out there today that you pretty much have to respect, even if the singing isn't your thing. They have a unique sound, a punishing guitarist, put on a hell of a live show, and write fairly deep, thoughtful music, and turn out a solid new CD every couple years. They're just doing everything right.

Other than the vocalist being shitty.

Well, more than a couple of years between discs, and you missed the best part of the band - without Van Williams, the drummer, they're nothing. He has a knack for taking Jeff's weird riffs and making them drive - as someone once said to me, "he's the engine that drives Nevermore".

Mike - my sense of pace when it comes to releasing albums is obviously a little suspect. :)

Honestly though, isn't that the whole point of the drummer? I guess some bands aren't drum-centric, and they are (like SlipKnot)... well Van is killer anyway.

Good God, I just compared Nevermore to SlipKnot. :(

I was on a Nevermore kick a couple of months ago... I'm of the opinion that they're one of the best metal bands out there right now making music. I understand that Warrel's vocals might not be everyone's cup of tea, even for me sometimes it's a bit much, you cannot deny their musicanship though.
