Producer Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY, SKINLAB, MASTERPLAN) has finished remixing NEVERMORE's "Enemies of Reality" album for re-release via the Century Media label in the spring.
Commented Sneap: "I finished the remixes [Saturday] night [Jan. 15] bar a couple of vocals that got lost somewhere between Seattle and the U.K. (only a whisper and a scream so Warrel [Dane, NEVERMORE singer] redid them [on Saturday]). It's sounding a lot clearer and really, REALLY heavy so I think [the fans will] be happy. I'm really enjoying listening to it myself, which says something because usually I'm fed up of an album once I've done it.
"Don't know what the release date is but Century Media are anxious to get it so I'm presuming it'll be spring sometime. It usually takes 6-8 weeks minimum to get an album out from when masters are delivered."
"Enemies of Reality" (2003) was originally recorded in Seattle with producer Kelly Gray (QUEENSRŸCHE, SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM, DOKKEN) and was widely criticized for its muddy, inferior production compared to that of its predecessor, 2000's "Dead Heart in a Dead World", which was produced by Sneap.
NEVERMORE are expected to enter the studio with Sneap in the next few weeks to begin recording their follow-up to "Enemies Of Reality", tentatively due late summer/early fall via Century Media.
