Guest review by
So, when you think of metal bands with some of the all-time great line-ups, whom do you think of? Go ahead; think for a moment. As for me, names like Bloodbath, Opeth, Cynic, and Diabolical Masquerade are a few that come to mind. Hmm, it's interesting that three of those share common members, isn's it? And oh yeah, by the way, there are several others you can add to that list, one of them being Nevermore. Let's see here, we have one of the best vocalists in not only metal, but in all of music in Warrel Dane, without a doubt one of music's best guitarists in Jeff Loomis, an incredible drummer in Van Williams, and a bass player by the name of Jim Sheppard who had no problem keeping up with all of them.

Welcome to the site!

But he "did not like the album"! Clearly that warrants a 1!!
On a side note, this is clearly the highlight in Nevermore's (as well as Loomis') career.

Yeah it is. This Godless Endeavor occasionally nibbles at its toes, but this always comes out on top.

Yep. Their best, indeed. Way more varied than This Godless Endeavour.

Dead Heart first, and then it's a fight between Godless and Dreaming Neon Black for second place.

Dreaming Neon Black is the second place. But yeah, Dead Heart detroys all their albums.

Still not convinced, sorry. Even if it's really fucking great, I would still put Politics of Ecstasy AND Dreaming Neon Black AND This Godless Endeavor above it.

This is my favourite Nevermore album. Haven't got them all yet but this one is great.

Never cared much for this band, I've always considered them one of the more overrated bands on MS and elsewhere. Was listening to this album today and all it did was remind of why I don't like them. If this is Nevermore's best, then they really aren't very good at all. And The Heart Collector is one of the most boring and lame ballads of all time.

Just as diverse in quality as This Godless Endeavour.
Narcosynthesis, Heart Collector, title track are all excellent tracks.
We Disintegrate and Inside Four Walls are also great.
But the rest is rather mediocre I would say. The SAG cover is forgetable.
Overall This Godless Endeavour wins the crown as best Nevermore album for me, but only by a margin.
The rest of their discography did not give me much unfortunately.

I just can't stand most of the lyrics. Like the worst of the worst Dream Theater lyrics. Music is darn good though, quite a polarizing album.

One of the best albums with 7 string lead guitar.

I'd only really listened to The Politics Of Ecstasy before giving Nevermore a proper listen. This is definitely my favourite of theirs! Jeff Loomis's playing is outstanding on here and Warrel Dane (RIP) gave a fantastic performance.

'The Sound Of Silence' is especially surprising, I'm not normally a fan of covers in metal but this really took an original approach that made it a different enough experience from the original to make it enjoyable.

9.3/10 for me - 'Narcosynthesis', 'We Disintegrate', 'The Sound Of Silence' and 'Believe In Nothing' are the standout tracks. 'Inside Four Walls' and 'The River Dragon Has Come' are both also fantastic.
