These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crowning Musicof Awesome: According to many professional and amateur critics, pretty much all of there, but This Godless Endeavor is Nevermore taking their music to the absolute peak. As mentioned in the Main, it topped "Album of the Year" and "Album of the Decade" lists. Chances are it'll go down as one of the all time classics.
Jerkass Woobie: Dane. He may have had a reputation for being a drunken dickhead, but the man had an engagement horribly truncated by way of his fiancee getting involved with a cult and disappearing (and now being presumed dead). There's a good amount of evidence to suggest that he never really recovered from it.
Serial Escalation: A few examples already marked on this page, but Jeff Loomis' technical skill as a guitarist can only be described as this. Also, the exponential increase in heaviness and aggression from Dead Heart In A Dead World to This Godless Endeavor is this. The former arguably hit its peak with his solo material; even to this day, "Jato Unit" is still infamous for being unbelievably difficult to play on guitar, and it is slowly beginning to become a rite-of-passage song for aspiring shredders.
