That's a short set. Only 13 songs? Were they not headlining?

Anyway, can't wait to see'em in a few weeks myself.

Well, I'm glad you saw it, at least. Care to explain it to the author?

Dude, that's a total shame, if you ask me. You really need to pick up their other material ASAP. Especially This Godless Endeavor, Dead Heart in a Dead World, Enemies of Reality (Andy Sneap Mix), The Politics of Ecstasy, Dreaming Neon Black and their self titled album.

They were headlining. Though, maybe it has something to do with them playing with 4 other bands last night, who knows. But god damn, it was good either way. I was rather content with it, seeing how tired I was by the time Warbringer finished their set and Nevermore was setting up there.
I felt its length in quite a few places.

Yeah, they did. Thankfully, because Mutiny Within is god awful. Black Guard took their place, and they were pretty good actually.

To each his own I guess. But the last time I had to see them live, god damn did they shit all over themselves.

I noticed that. They have played at least 6 shows in Seattle this year. At least.

They are young and have mass appeal. They are catering towards a broad spectrum, with music that has elements of the most modern core-type of stuff to the throw-back melodic hook stuff of the 80's. I think they have an impressive template and pull it off well.
Not saying I'm hugely into them, but what I've heard I like.

Warbringer has also been touring like a beast. Gotta use those young, fiery passions while they still have'em I suppose. The label will tour them till they burnout an start killing each other. Both bands are already having the lineup swapping rage like most developing bands do.

I'm one of those guys who very much dislikes almost anything -core related. The singer has a good SINGING voice, and if dropped the harsh vocals and the band dropped all the uninspired breakdown riffs, they could be decent in my eyes.

Do you like "The Agonist" Lat? I think it's the closest band to -core related stuff that I really enjoy. Plus they have an amazing female singer.

Never heard of them, so I can't say. There are a couple of core bands that I like, but that's because they generally don't sound like the generic -core bullshit.

I don't know, I am by no means a "core" guy, but some screaming can be put to good use. I love Fear Factory, Death, Necrophagia, Strapping Young Lad etc. Its all about how you use it. I think that particular kid sounds decent, and his singing voice is quite good to boot. Its good to be a well-rounded vocalist.

He should do power metal, honestly.

And comparing core screaming to Chuck Schuldiner's vocal style or SYL's isn't much of an argument, seeing how they aren't core or sound like generic core harsh vocals. I'm also just nit-picking away at your statement.

Oh, I understand. I'm just illustrating the difference between good screams and lousy ones. The kid has decent tone from what I've heard and is clearly gonna help them appeal to a younger audience. Hell, my current band is a bit of a sell-out. You gotta appeal to the people with the money.

2 questions

1. I have decided to try to get into these guys. After listening to This Godless Endeavour (song) I think I might be able to get over the dudes power metally voice and get into the epic 7 stringness. Where to start?

2. I don't think I can catch them coming near me (Philly) in 3 weeks, are they going to schedule more dates?

I know you guys aren't psychic but knowing the band, I'm asking for an educated guess.

Dude...just...don't.


If you MUST know, just watch the promo videos for the album (EoR and I Voyager). Its the prime example that the mix/master process can make or break an album.




As for where to start? Dead Heart in a Dead World. That's THE one album of theirs I'd take to an island.

It's.....interesting.  Technically is absolutely terrible.  Kelly Gray did an awful job.  The band were pissed at him and they shouldn't have released it, but I guess they were bound by their record company. 

To be honest, I can listen to it, it does have a certain raw brutality to it.  I own both versions, I only think I can listen to the original because I know I have the remaster.  The amount of clipping on the cd is laughable.  I don't even know how they could get it to sound this unprofessional.  There's also no bottom end what so ever.

I mainly only brought it for the DVD.  An interesting piece of Nevermore's history.

Enemies of Reality is my favorite, and you may like it for the sheer brutality (honestly, some parts feel like death metal with clean vox). Most people will say This Godless Endeavor, but that one took a while to grow on me.

I'd say Dead Heart.

The original mixing for Enemies of Reality is absolutely awful. It's the version I own, and upon first listen I thought my CD was fucked up or something (a la Pull Me Under).

Numbers, I'd say This Godless Endeavor or Dead Heart in a Dead World. Both are absolutely fantastic albums. Enemies of Reality is as well great, but it has a few weaker moments if you ask me.

Yeah, like Never Purify. Even that one has a great riff and a killer solo. Dead Heart and TGE both have some weaker moments for me as well. Believe in Nothing and Bittersweet Feast come to mind.
