Vocalist Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard founded the band. They were veterans of Sanctuary, more or less a power metal group with thrash influences. Guitarist Jeff Loomis had recently quit a death metal band because he was sick of the [[HarshVocals vocal approach]], and was accompanied by Guitarist [[HeyItsThatGuy Pat O'Brien]], who would later quit to join Cannibal Corpse (his favorite band).

Nevermore are a [[ProgressiveMetal Progressive Metal]] band (with influences from every Metal sub-genre this side of Norway thrown into the mix) formed from the ashes of Power-Metallers Sanctuary in Seattle, 1991. They are noted for the blazing, technical lead guitar playing of Jeff Loomis, as well as frontman Warrel Dane's distinctively atonal and cynical singing style. Difficult to pigeonhole, the band tends towards the darker, more instrumentally complex sides of progressive music - though chaotic and heavy enough to compete with the most aggressive of thrash bands, they retain many more progressive aspects such as acoustic segments, classically influenced guitar arrangements and Dane's vocal delivery.

Singer Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard are the only current members of Nevermore, and both are concentrating on the reunion of Sanctuary. Loomis is even busier, juggling a solo career, the progressive metal supergroup Conquering Dystopia, and as of recent, Music/ArchEnemy, while Williams has largely retired from music outside of Ashes of Ares, which tours irregularly. Judging by how Dane and Sheppard were both billed as "ex-Nevermore" in a recent press release announcing Nick Cordle's induction into Sanctuary, it's likely that Nevermore is done for good unless a reunion happens somewhere down the line.

* TheBandMinustheFace: If they do continue, Nevermore will not be the same without Van's drumming, or, more importantly, Jeff Loomis' guitar playing. Thus, this trope arguably comes into play.

Singer Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard are the only current members of Nevermore, and both are concentrating on the reunion of Sanctuary. Loomis, meanwhile, has been having a decent degree of success with his solo career, while Williams has taken to devoting additional resources to Pure Sweet Hell, a side project that he started while in Nevermore. As for Nevermore itself, the future is uncertain. Dane has said that he wouldn't rule out a reunion, but the likelihood of it happening any time soon (if ever) does not seem awfully high.

Added DiffLines:

* IconicItem: Loomis's signature red Schecter C7 FR (he also owns and occasionally uses a C7 Hellraiser and a C7 Blackjack, but the signature model is what he usually uses for live appearances as of now).

* TheAlcoholic: Dane and Sheppard became infamous for excessive drinking and it's been all but confirmed as the reason why Loomis and Williams left.

* GenreBusting: A weird case in that while their sound isn't exactly oblique, they still don't really fit into any one genre. Thrash metal, progressive metal, power metal, djent, and death metal all blur together into something that is fairly accessible, but still very, very difficult to pigeonhole. Most people refer to them as progressive metal and leave it at that.

* TalkToTheFist: Dane was on the receiving end of this from Billy Milano (Stormtroopers of Death, M.O.D.). The actual reason is still up in the air; some accounts allege that Dane was drunk, depressed, and generally having a bad night and that Milano told him to [[JerkAss stop whining before punching him]], while others allege that Dane was [[CantHoldHisLiquor piss drunk and acting like an asshole]], and Milano had had enough and decided to hit him. Some facts are consistent, however: Dane was drunk, Milano punched him, the police were called, and Milano was hauled off.
