Nevermore is an American heavy metal band from Seattle, Washington. He was trained in 1992 on the ashes of the Sanctuary group. Nevermore acts as a UFO in the current metal scene since it combines and mixes a lot of influences.
The group was formed in 1991, in Seattle, under the impetus of Warrel Dane and Jim Sheppard who had previously worked in the Sanctuary group. Warrel Dane officiating on vocals and Jim Sheppard on bass, added to Jeff Loomis on guitar and Van Williams on drums; the band is now full and released his first eponymous demo in 1992>. They are identified by the label Century Media Records>, conquered by the atypical voice of Warrel Dane, and the guitar game of Jeff Loomis (who has always been self-taught).
The band entered the studio in 1994 to record an eponymous first album with Neil Kernon who had already produced albums of Queensryche. The album is published in 1995>, and some titles of the demo have gone by the wayside (such as The Dreaming Mind , The World Unborn , The System is Failling , Utopia and Chances Three ). It does however include new songs such as The Sanity Assassin , What Tomorrow Knows < / span>, Sea of Possibilities and Timothy Leary . Then follows a tour that will not go down in history as the band goes almost unnoticed, making only the first parts of other groups more expected.
In 1996 the group shut up again in studio to record the album "The Politics of Ecstasy" ; a dantesque album, much appreciated by the journalists, which includes hit songs such as The Seven Tongues of God , The Politics of Ecstasy , The Tiananmen Man and The Learning . This is a turning point for the group, because the experience gained in previous years allows the creation of a much more worked album.
