Leaner, meaner, heavier, and more technical than anything Sanctuary ever did. "Politics" is melodic, progressive but heavy as any thrash band. Still can't understand why all these Sanctuary fans complain about this band. OK, Warrell Dane doesn't sing like he just inhaled helium, but he still has killer pipes. Besides, those high pitched shrieks still manage to make their way in here an there. "The Seven Tongues of God" is a KILLER song, matching the intensity of Sanctuary's "Battle Angels."

Man, Scott. Still ripping your own reviews. lol. Keep up the good work with the site, and one more thing, CHECK OUT NIGHTWISH. They are an awesome Finnish power metal band with female opera styled vocals.

Fantastic album with a rotten cover.

From: Dean Date: July 24, 2004 at 16:03
Another superb disc from Dane and co. The combination of Loomis and Pat O Brian(before Cannible Corpse) proves deadly. Awesome riffs and killer vocals make this one another 10/10.

This cd is criminally underrated! It was my favorite all the way up until Enemies Of Reality came out. Now that This Godless Endeavor was released, thats my favorite. That almost never happens though, most times a band i like will put out a cd and never top it again, Nevermore keeps pushing their boundries. Now go buy This Godless Endeavor NOW!!!

Not really a concept album, but there is a loose theme in several songs dealing with hallucinogenic drugs like LSD and MDMA (get the title?) and expanding one's consciousness (the song title "42147" is a reference to the date of the first medical experiments involving LSD were conducted by the U.S. military). The sound is similar to the next album, Dreaming Neon Black, with Neil Kernon's grinding, trebly production. The band is super-tight, not an easy thing with music this rhythmically complex. Highlights would be "The Seven Tongues Of God," "This Sacrament," "Next In Line," "42147" and the absolute monster of a title track.

Solid stuff by Nevermore..."Next in Line" was the first song of this album that i heard in a metal compilation and became an instant fave(in fact still of the whole album that is)...some other good moments are tracks 1,2,6,9 & 10...86/100
