The Nevermore T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway.
Nevermore are the American heavy metal band from Seattle, USA. They formed in 1992 when the band Sanctuary was under pressure by its recording label to move towards the mainstream success at the time that was grunge. Nirvana and Pearl Jam, both from Seattle also, were sweeping the world but two members of Sanctuary, Warrel Dane (vocals) and Jim Sheppard (bass), refused to conform with change and started the breakaway band Nevermore.
Their style is famous for featuring agressive, power and thrash, as well as incorporating vocal styles and instruments, such as acoustic guitars, that are deemed far from traditional for their genre.
The Sanctuary rebels added drummer Van Williams and Jeff Loomis, who was a touring guitarist with Sanctuary. It was in 1995 that their debut album was released, with the band going on to have much success after.
However in April 2011 they cancelled a schedule tour of North America, and shortly afterwards Loomis and Williams announced they would be leaving the band due to personal and musical differences. Nevermore then cancelled their tour of Australia, before Dane confirmed in July that the band had split, citing his focus now being back with Sanctuary. However, Nevermore are not nevermore just yet, as Dane said that "while Loomis will be tough to replace", and "it will be hard to keep the Nevermore legacy alive", "Nevermore are not dead".
