I never really liked Dead Heart all that much. The first three tracks and the closing song were the only good ones (and the cover song).

I couldn't agree more, except that my favorite tracks from that one are 1, 6, 7 and 8.

Every time i post this point of view in Hellenic rock/metal forums about Dead Heart in a Dead World, i'm being treated as an alien lol.

With this album - The Obsidian Conspiracy - Nevermore recorded two cover songs, one being the The Tea Party's Transmission from the self-titled album.

The results were mediocre, as the band stayed loyal to the original song orchestrations.

Nevermore really had outdone themselves in that The Sound of Silence cover.

The band surely rushed into making this album.

Let's hope that they'll learn something from it in the future.

The style is very akin to Dead Heart, but a VERY stripped down Dead Heart. This album is quite disappointing. Some good songs, very few great songs and some REALLY mediocre/shitty songs, which is a rare find on Nevermore albums.

Nevermore have really done this to themselves by setting such a high standard in the first place

definitely. i was a little disappointed with this one but its still a pretty damn good album to me. the blue marble song is just gay though.

Maybe the reviews lowered my expectations enough to avoid becoming overhyped, but I actually don't think it's terrible. It's definitetly not perfect, but it has some good moments. Plus, the guitar production is absolutely killer...Loomis always gets great tones, but they're huge on this.

For me the most annoying part of this is the vocals, they just sound really bloody uninspired at time.
"And the Maiden Spoke" has the most annoying chorus to ever grace a Nevermore song. It comes out of nowhere and just doesn't fit with the rest of the song. The rest of the song is ok though.
I wanted to listen to Nevermore, not another Dane solo album.

As a huge fan, I must say I am afraid to give this a listen considering what I heard. I don't want to lessen my opinion of this band. I really really don't.

Wasn't planning on it. I love Dreaming Neon Black to much.

This wasn't mediocre at all for me. Sure, there are better Nevermore albums than this, but Dane's vocals once again owns the fuck out of anybody who tries emotion in their singing and Loomis' note placement in solos is amazing. If you were expecting JUST thrash from Nevermore, why?

Both this and Godless Endeavor were a bit of a let down for me, not that they are bad, though, just
disappointing. I guess after a masterpiece like "Dead Heart", it would be hard to keep the standard.

3 out of 5 for both, imo. Love the cover art in this one.

Yeah, guitar-wise this is quite poor by the usual Nevermore standard. The riffs are pretty basic and
repetitive, like the reviewer wrote. Even the choruses are a bit lame. I guess this was recorded as a
swan song for the band and it shows.

Even so, compared to most metal coming out today, it's a pretty reasonable album.

I listened to Dead Heart, and then listened to this album and I realized this album is terrible by Nevermore standards.
