The greatest band on Century Media, this band kick some serious ass - fucking brutal Power Metal, featuring ex Sanctuary members. Buy!!

From: The Fizzy One Date: October 27, 2002 at 17:48
Warrel Dane continues to ruin a perfectly good band with his moronic weepy vocals. Good songs are 'Narcosynthesis,' 'Inside Four Walls,' 'ENgines of Hate,' and the title track. I'm not including 'We Disintegrate,' even though Dane's vocals are damn decent there, because the track slows right down and never picks back up again, or 'The River Dragon Has Come', which has excellent guitarwork but which Dane ruins. The other songs are ass-dragging and Dane makes them even slower with his 'singing.'

From: Fizz Date: October 27, 2002 at 17:50
Dane also thinks it's 'clever' to rhyme 'demon' with 'semen,' with a totally straight face, in 'Engines of Hate.'

From: Date: May 29, 2003 at 16:11
I gotta agree Dane's singing doesnt fit the 'Power Metal' category. I cant enjoy the music with this guys moaning. Another decent band with fucked up vocals bites the dust. 6.5/10

From: Date: July 1, 2003 at 13:40
I totaly disagree with nevermore being under power metal.They are much heaver then power,Danes vocals are just perfect for the type of metal they play!!!

From: H8 AssMunchers Date: August 18, 2003 at 3:34
Best songs on DHiaDW are Evolution 169,Insignificant, Believe In Nothing as they actually highlight the band's real talent. Don't understand why they think they have to be brutal although sometimes it has it place in their songs...As for Warrel's vox, any assmunch could growl, scream,etc their way thru these songs and they'd sound like a 100 other bands, but WD's vox are what make them unique. NeveRmorE would be a great band musically with a suck singer without WD, like many other bands.

Nevermore is one of the greatest bands on the planet. If they didn't have Warrel Dane on Vocals, they would sound just like Hammerfall, Blind Gaurdian and Iced Earth (Who are great) But we don't need a billion bands sounding exactly alike, Nevermore is totally different which is why they are so damn great, I love them and they haven't yet to realease a bad Album

From: black girl Date: October 15, 2003 at 18:32
very good album

From: iris Date: April 12, 2004 at 17:08
the best of nevermore! but hey! you haven't heard about 'enemis of reality'?

From: Fog-hat Date: July 22, 2004 at 8:57
Nevermore sounds just like they are supposed to sound. Warrel Dane after all, formed the band. Ditto to what rihjah said.

From: Dean Date: July 24, 2004 at 15:54
How anyone can rip on Warrel Dane's vocals is beyond my comprehension. Nevermore simply rule over all. The lyrics, concepts, delivery, riffs and overall package kick some serious ass. Have you figured out i worship Nevermore(and Sanctuary) yet? 10/10

From: Jeff Broll Date: September 1, 2004 at 20:16
This is definitely one of the best albums I've heard in a long time and easily is the best I've heard from Century. I can't see how anyone rips WD's voice - I imagine they're the same kind people who rip Labrie from Dream Theater, in both cases people insult them using generic, useless terms, but can't come up with a replacement. Loomis is an amazing guitarist, and is one of the only down-tuners I can stand listening to - he can make the most out of any tuning, unlike too many others. Buy it!

From: sixxswine Date: November 25, 2004 at 20:10
One of the better bands out there at the moment. Warrel's vocals are so distinct that when he opens his mout you know who it is. That's what makes them standout from their contemporaries. This is probably their best record & one that I can always look forward to hearing. SIXXSWINE 11.25.04

From: Metal T Date: November 29, 2004 at 16:03
Well....Ive heard their version of "Love Bites" and i have to be honest and say that it sounds like complete sh*t.Talk about a butcher job!----However,the original issue of "Dead" cranks and is quite good . -- --

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 1, 2005 at 15:20
I just got a used CD of this album and I can finally say I "get" Nevermore. Excellent work, what little I'd heard of them beforehand was hit or miss but "Dead Heart" is an excellent album. I'm hooked now, I'll be investigating the rest of their CDs very soon.

From: Date: June 3, 2005 at 23:19
o my god these guys r really good

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 6, 2013 at 23:41
Supposedly, this is the album Nevermore had been planning to make, when Warrel Dane became plauged by the nightmares that inspired Dreaming Neon Black, so they made that one instead. Here, Jeff Loomis switches to seven-string guitars, being one of the few players to actually play the instrument the way it was designed to be played. Head Heart is very near the quality of Dreaming Neon Black, and I do tend to go back and forth on which is my favorite. No concept here, as the songs deal with topics including a Chinese dam-break, chaos theory, the War On Drugs, and prescription medication. Dane's (shall we say) "distinctive voice is missing the ocean of reverb from the last album, putting his vocals more upfront in the mix, but at the same time, Andy Sneap gives the guitars have a richer tone, compared to Neil Kernon's tinny, buzzing production on the previous two discs.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 6, 2013 at 23:43
There seem to be more slower-paced tracks, which tends to make the album drag a bit, but there are also ripping heavy songs like "We Disintegreat," "Engines Of Hate" and the title track. Also, they render Paul Simon's "Sound Of Silence" completely unrecognizable, in a good way.

From: Wardy Date: July 4, 2014 at 8:15
Rightly deserving of praise already afforded it here, DeadHeart offers more melody even more melancholy & slightly less focus on just the headbang albeit plenty that still in tact. Every song speaks to the listener but the slower numbers truly shine here. The Heart Collector & Believe In Nothing are huge, possibly two of the best kick to the head ballads (for want of a better description) this side of the new millennium. Evolution 169 & the stunningly brilliant Insignificant walk similar ground but are a little darker (if even possible) & best hard hitters are the opening Narcosynthesis & Inside 4 Walls. Yet whether it be heavy soft or as is more often the case a bit of both, every song engages. Never really bought the Queensryche comparisons often afforded Warrel Dane in particular, some similarities during the slow numbers I guess but Nevermore always reminded me more of early Paradise Lost (good thing). Regardless this album is epic in every sense of the word. Essential, rating 9+
