Format: Audio CD
Nevermore have gained a reputation as being one of the best and most talented American heavy metal bands of recent years. The Politics of Ecstasy is their second album and a very impressive one it is too. The music here is certainly very heavy, but also melodic and has some nice progressive touches trown in. The band members are very talented, which ensures that the musicianship here is incredible. Lead guitarist Jeff Loomis is clearly one of the best guitarists in metal and his fantastic guitar work greatly boosts these songs. Second guitarist Pat o'Brien delivers plenty of huge, meaty riffs which create massive musical tension throughout the recording and are always varied enough to avoid becoming repetitive at all. Drummer Van Williams is an extraordinary drummer and even the bassist is pretty good. Last but not least is singer Warrel Dane. His powerful and dramatic voice is one of Nevermore's main trademarks. His voice is fairly operatic, like Bruce Dickinson but a little more rough-sounding which is fitting because Nevermore's music is more rough that Maiden's.
The lyrics are great, of course. They are very socially and politically conscious, adding to the album's maturity and Dane's powerful delivery only adds to them. This increases the emotion conveyed in the songs.The album is extremely consistent and the band's heavy, progressive sound is maintained throughout unlike on Dreaming Neon Black which actually gets dragged down by having too many power ballads. Here the exhilarating guitar based brand of metal is maintained throughout. There is still variety, with the very powerful slow burner The Passenger and an acoustic interlude which is actually really likeable.
The band displays ambition too. There are two fairly progressive epics which are The Learning and the title track.
