Emptiness Unobstructed


In the heavy metal community many writers toss around the monikers “legend” and “genre defying” to describe many bands, but these terms have never been more accurate if they are referring to NEVERMORE, who have perfectly carved out their own unique niche over the past 15 years of dominance. This group’s sound encompasses every element of the metal spectrum and is ... Read more in Amazon's Nevermore Store

Nice acoustic intro, great melodic riffs, and a darn catchy chorus.
Kevin McDonald
If you are a heavy metal fan or just like great music with lyrics that make you think, these guys are for you.
This is by far the best album of Nevermore, and probably the best trash/power metal album I own.
Dimitrios Staikos

As a music columnist, I have learned to look at things from an objective point of view, and I can honestly say that there isn't anything bad to say about this album and Nevermore in general. Dreaming Neon Black has the potential to be to the new millennium what Operation Mindcrime or Master of Puppets was to the 80s. Combining virtuoso musicianship, aggression, beauty, progression, and intelligence, Nevermore displays a maturity and integrity that puts them in the same league with musically articulate bands such as Fates Warning, Dream Theater, and Queensryche, with twice the aggression. Dreaming Neon Black not only gets the adrenaline going, but moves the emotions as well. Fans of the band will be happy to know that new guitarist Tim Calvert (ex-Forbidden) has not altered the sound at all, and in fact adds to it with sweeping technicality and dense, strange chord structures that compliments Jeff Loomis's original style. Van Williams has cut back a little on the perpetual double-kicks, but his drumming is precise and imaginitive. He could give Mike Portnoy a run for his money. The vocals are more along the lines of 'In Memory' as opposed to the restraint displayed on 'Politics..', and that's part of the reason why this album works so well. Warrel Dane sings with power and emotion, in the tradition of Tate, Alder, and LaBrie, and is responsible for all of the lyrics,which are, to say the least, brilliant. This guy is no dummy. 'Dreaming..' is an altogether darker affair than their previous works, and at times combines Bauhuas-like influences with metallic stacatto-picking. It's a concept album about the mental decline of a character confronted with personal loss, but would work just as well if the themes had varied.Read more ›

This album is my pick for best release of last year. I doubted that Nevermore could top their masterful achievement in "Politics of Ecstasy," but without a doubt they did it here.
Nevermore's genius lies in combining an extremely _heavy_ guitar style (this may be the heaviest non-death metal album ever made) with a degree of technicality that keeps every riff sounding fresh and new without losing the listener in a maze. The riffs are straightforward enough to engage mind and body completely but different and odd enough to sound quite different from anything else one can think of.
One mustn't ignore Warrel Dane's voice either. The man is rather a maniac, but his insane wail suits the music well.
Some listeners have noted a possible problem with the mastering on this disc. In going for the heaviest sound possible, they may have overloaded the frequencies a bit, so that on some speaker systems (and when put to tape) the CD can give off a throbbing sound not unlike the bass distortion that, unfortunately, most bands give off in a live setting. On a good stereo system this should not be a problem at all, and the problem may also vary across different manufactured discs.
Top songs here include: "The Death of Passion," "I Am the Dog," "The Fault of the Flesh," and "Poison Godmachine." When I say that these are the top songs on this album, they are also among the top metal songs of the year. The titles give some indication of the absolute insanity and chaos of this album.
In short, Nevermore is absolutely essential for ANY self-respecting metal fan (and I don't say that about many CDs), and should be the first stop for any non-metal fan curious about what classy, uncompromising metal is like nowadays.

As usual, my review was too long, and I had to cut it down...ask me for the whole thing if you want. Here is the gist of it.
As many know, this album focuses upon the loss of a loved one and one man's burning desires driving him to ultimate insanity and death. HOWEVER, this is NOT a concept album - not in the normal sense, anyway. Many do not know this, but it was based on a true story in Warrel Dane's life. About ten years prior to the album's release, Dane had been seeing a girl who one day upped and left, to join some kind of cult, and...that was all; he never saw or heard from her again. That was bad enough in and of itself, but fast forward to ten years later: Nevermore is working on a new album, maybe just getting the music ready, when Dane begins to have recurring dreams...dreams that his long-missing girlfriend is at the bottom of a lake, screaming his name. That image drove him to write the lyrics to DREAMING NEON BLACK, and create the ultimately dark theme that drives the album. The twelve songs on here focus upon one man's thoughts, feelings, and reactions to the loss of a loved one, and it is through the songs that one can determine that this loved one disappeared one day to some cult. As time wears on, however, the man is haunted by her, not necessarily as a ghost, but just by thinking about her. These songs explain his anger, his fear, his depression, all of which bloom from her haunting image - and he begins to go insane, blaming the loss on everything from organized religion to himself. So as I said, this is not a concept album with a single plot that has a beginning, middle, and end, but rather a sort of grand finale of the thoughts and reactions of a man driven to the point of eccentric madness.
Okay, end of spiel, and onto album.
