Tag Archives: Nevermore
The video above showcases one of the Hungarian artists I love most, namely Leander. The song is easily recognizable, “Szomoru Vasarnap”, although many of you might know it as “Gloomy Sunday”. Kudos to Attila “Mowgli” Voros, who fulfills the duties of live guitar playing for Nevermore.
Heavy Metal group Nevermore have been referred to as “the greatest band alcohol ever ruined” by vocalist Warrel Dane, in a recent interview for ProgPower USA XII. Yes, even better than the 4 million other Metal bands to be ruined by alcohol (or drugs).
Dane comments that the band are far from over, though, and that there will definitely be a new album at some point. You can view the interview over at Blabbermouth.
We’re one of the last of a dying breed. We’re the Albert Einstein of brutality, the William Shakespear of violence, the Arnold Schwarzenegger of funny, the Michael Jackson of metal. All these comparisons are way off though… because we’re better than those guys and we’re certainly better than anyone else out there, including you!
We’re so good, we’re interviewing each other. Who needs interviews with musicians, who have been interviewed already thousands of times? No one!
So, you want to know what happened this past week in metal? Make the jump, we’ll teach you a lesson.
I’m all about the poetry and shit, as you can see. What, you didn’t figure out the post title? Here’s what the writer wanted to say: Two members of Nevermore have left the band. That bring the total number of people leaving their bands to about a dozen, last two weeks of April only (want the exact number, well count it yourself).
Here’s their announcement:
“In a mutual decision Jeff Loomis and Van Williams have decided to leave Nevermore. The time has come to pursue our own paths from the group. Due to internal struggles and ongoing issues within the band, we feel it is our time to move on. We would like to thank all of our fans around the world for their years of love, support and enthusiasm. This was not an easy decision but a very necessary one at this point, may we all meet again someday, somewhere in time.”
What can I say, except “I don’t give a shit?” Hmmm I’ll do my best: Good luck guys.
Time for some headlines, folks, and trust me, they’ll bore you to death.
Queensrÿche (pictured above… i think… it’s not the 80s, is it?) are talking about their new album and, you guessed it, it’s “going in another direction.” If I had a blowjob for every time I heard that…
Lars Ulrich is an actor now. A photo of him on the set pictured and I can only describe it with three letters: LOL
Nevermore are embarking on a clinic tour around Serbia, Italy and Greece. I wish Paramore would do the same. I heard Serbian laws for rape are pretty forgiving.
Nick Oliveri is not working with Homme yet. He squashed those rumors in a recent interview. Too bad the one spreading them was himself.
Here’s the problem I have with Jeff Loomis of Nevermore and a lot of other guitarists like him. He’s obviously a gifted player and he can sound great. However, a lot of times he chooses to do those squeaky sounding sweeps which make you cringe and make the guitar sound like an out of tune, high-pitched piano played by an ADHD suffering retard with Down Syndrome who got kicked in the balls by a professional NFL player.
And this excerpt from his DVD is a prime example of that. Check out the intro (after the jump) and tell me if your ears aren’t bleeding. I can’t kick Loomis’ ass for making these awful sounds, cause he’s kinda famous, but you can pick up the DVD and learn to do them yourself, and rest assured, your ass I can kick… Bitch.
When asked if the bass knob on his amp was broken, Jeff Loomis had no comment.
