Nevermore – The Obsidian Conspiracy

NAME: Nevermore
ALBUM: The Obsidian Conspiracy
DATE: 31May2010

LABEL: Century Media


FIVE WORD REVIEW: If WWF made rock bands.

LOCATION: Seattle, Washington

LINE UP: Van Williams (fast drums), Jim Sheppard Bass, Jeff Looms (guitars), Warrel Dane (vocals)

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Not only is it impossible to tell one track from anther on this album it is nearly impossible to differentiate this album from everything else Nevermore have ever released. Every track follows a dull, predictable and slightly embarrassing formula. The drumming is rather fast, but it’s difficult to remain impressed by that for more than half a track, then there’s the abundance of lyrics about women moving chairs downstairs, and shattering dreams, and inner emptiness and such, and no track on the album seems complete with out a very odd spoken-word piece somewhere in the middle.

SOUNDS LIKE: Outdated guitars and haircuts.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You like everything else Nevermore have ever vomited your way, though you might as well just buy something from their back catalogue it’ll be cheaper and it’ll be hard to tell the difference.
