The Obsidian Conspiracy

The Obsidian Conspiracy is the upcoming seventh album by Seattle based American heavy metal band Nevermore, to be released June 8, 2010 in North America by Century Media.[1] and in the very end of May in Europe.[2]



Nevermore entered Wichers studio, North Carolina, in August, 2009, to record the album. Van Williams completed recording the drumming on the album as 17th of August, in Seattle. The whole recording process was finished in October.

Warrel Dane commented on the writing process: "These songs are full of newfound rage, lyrically and musically. Jeff Loomis has come up with some amazing new riffs that will no doubt please old and new fans alike. Also, I think the combination of Peter and Andy(production & mixing) will result in something very, very special." Dane expressed his opinion about the song "And the Maiden spoke": " [It] is going to blow your minds; it's twisted, progressive lunatic fringe riffing with vicious hooklines."[3]

Jeff Loomis commented on the writing of the album: "I think that with the new Nevermore, it still sounds like the band, but I think I'm giving Warrel a little bit more room this time around for more vocals rather than all the notey, kind of complex stuff and all that, so this time around it's just a little bit more wide open musically for him to really be able to do whatever he wants vocally this time around. So we'll see what happens. It's gonna be an interesting album for us, for sure."[4]

Nevermore recorded two cover songs during the sessions: "The Crystal Ship" by The Doors and "Transmission" by The Tea Party[5]
