Dreaming Neon Black

Dreaming Neon Black

Dreaming Neon Black is the third full-length album released by Seattle metal band Nevermore, and was released through Century Media in 1999. Unlike its predecessor, The Politics of Ecstasy, this album is very emotional and contains many slower, ballad-type songs. It is also notable that Dreaming Neon Black is a concept album of sorts, telling the tale of a man's slow plunge into insanity following the death of his girlfriend, which may be based on an event in the life of Nevermore's lead singer, Warrel Dane. Supposedly, Dane's old girlfriend left him when she joined a religious cult and was never heard from again, and he began having nightmares of her crying out to him as she drowned. This has been confirmed by Warrel himself in an older interview. The spoken word samples from the tracks "Ophidian" and "Forever" is from the Clive Barker movie, Lord of Illusions. Clocking in at 65 minutes and 59 seconds, it is the longest Nevermore album to date, next to the album that came before it, The Politics of Ecstasy (62:24).
