NEVERMORE Singer's Solo Debut Doing Well In Greece

June 7, 2008

According to Warrel Dane Fans, NEVERMORE frontman Warrel Dane's solo debut, "Praises to the War Machine", has been steadily climbing the Greek chart since its release, landing at No. 33 in its opening week, moving to No. 15 in its second week and climbing to No. 7 the following week.

"Praises to the War Machine" sold 1,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Dane previously commented: "It's been a crazy ride since the idea for this record first came about in the back of a tour bus two years ago, as I was bored out of my skull and wanting new music to work on. It's been nothing but a great experience working with Peter Wichers (ex-SOILWORK),Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK) and Matt Wicklund (ex-HIMSA) and I must say I feel pretty lucky to have worked with great musicians throughout my career dating all the way back to SANCTUARY, and of course NEVERMORE. I feel fortunate that this record has been so well received and look forward to playing these tunes in a live situation."

A new video for the track "Brother" will be shot in the coming weeks with up-and-coming director Max Gutierrez. The clip will be a very dark introspective piece focusing on the relationship between Dane and his brother following the death of their father. Look for the clip this summer.

Video footage of Warrel Dane offering a track-by-track breakdown of "Praises to the War Machine" can be viewed below (in two parts).

Dane, who first shattered the boundaries of conventionality with the legendary SANCTUARY and NEVERMORE, proves that he is one of metal's most diverse frontmen with this solo effort as he unleashes a barrage of introspective and personal lyrics that are heartfelt and extremely powerful. All of this emotion backed with his soaring angelic and dynamic vocals provides all of the necessary elements for a savagely captivating, melodic assault that quickly hooks you in. This exhilarating new offering begins a new chapter for Dane and will soon further solidify his spot as one of the genre's most influential artists.
