Nevermore

With a string of solid albums dating back to their debut in 1995, Nevermore firmly established themselves as one of the premier modern American metal bands. In a genre overrun with staleness and unoriginality, Nevermore continues to deliver quality music, mixing just the right amounts of power, melody, crunch and aggression to great effect. The roots of the band go back to an earlier band called Sanctuary, a similarly-styled technical power metal outfit that themselves released two albums before internal problems forced their breakup. Vocalist Warrell Dane is Nevermore's trump card, as he's one of the best in the business, with a clear yet forceful voice that never wanders out of control. Nevermore really have yet to release a sub-standard album, and have maintained their reputation as a premier metal act.

As of this writing (June 2017), the band continues to be on indefinite hold, though the chances of a revival seem to be fading. Longtime members Jeff Loomis and Van Williams officially left the band and have kept themselves busy in new bands, while Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard have revived Sanctuary.
