Nevermore bassist Jim Sheppard to undergo brain tumor surgery

published on February 17, 2011 by Darren Cowan
Bassist Jim Sheppard of Seattle metallers Nevermore will undergo surgery today (Wednesday, February 16) to remove a benign brain tumor. The band's vocalist, Warrel Dane, says, "Please, all metalhead brothers and sisters, send your positive energy for our brother."

Sheppard in 2006 missed a number of Nevermore shows after undergoing a minor procedure for Crohn's Disease, a condition he's managed for nearly 20 years. Filling in for Sheppard was longtime friend James MacDonough (ex-Megadeth, Iced earth).

"The Obsidian Conspiracy", the new album from Nevermore, sold around 4,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 134 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 1 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

Nevermore has released a video for "Emptiness Unobstructed"

published on June 16, 2010 by Zandra
Nevermore has released a video for "Emptiness Unobstructed" , which can be viewed below . The clip was filmed during the band's London show on May 18 , 2010 , and was directed by Nigel Crane , who also worked with Paradise Lost .
This song comes off the band's new album "The Obsidian Conspiracy" , available via Century Media .
Commented frontman Warrel Dane : “Working with director Nigel Crane was a great experience. We spent a day walking around the white cliffs in Dover the day before the London show and we couldn’t possibly be happier with the end result. The live part was shot at the O2 Academy Islington in London and we only performed the song twice that night so we had to make these takes count, so we went all out. It was pretty amazing that most of the audience knew all of the words even though we were a number of days away from the album’s release. Thanks for checking this out and we hope you enjoy it.”
