i remember having a conversation with a guy recently who said that nevermore were nu metal,i thought to myself that maybe i will have fish for dinner and secondly that nevermore werent nu metal but were metal but with a niche,they are quite unique sounding if the truth be told,while they have had some great albums and 2 albums that didnt quite work this is a blistering return to form in every way. The riffs glow like ET's heart and the chorus' are good and memorable,the vocals are sang rather than screamed so you can have a nice sing along if you are so inclined,the album opens with the spine tingling born which has a chorus that could send your heart spiralling out of your mouth,the drum work is very fierce on this recording,my acid words is another belter that will have you bopping along nicely,its a thrash album in parts and contains moments of fret work brilliance but thats not to say that nevermore are a technical band. All in all its a fine album and i will be seeing nevermore live in a few days in belfast,providing they still make it as some members have been really ill so that should be a treat.
