Heavy metal upstarts Paladin have paid tribute to Nevermore vocalist Warrel Dane by way of their new covers EP Anamnesis. Dane passed away on December 13, 2017, marking the end of Nevermore and its possible reunion.
The EP does renditions of "The River Dragon Has Come," "Final Product," and "42147," sticking pretty close to the originals. Here's what Paladin vocalist and guitarist Taylor Washington had to say about the release.
"'River Dragon' was an obvious choice since it's probably their most recognizable song. I wanted to do something from This Godless Endeavor since it's still my favorite Nevermore album, and 'Final Product' was kind of the default choice since it doesn't have any super ridiculous hard parts in it. We also wanted to do an older song, one that wasn't played on a 7 string. The name is a mouthful, but I've always been partial to '42147' because it's filled with great riffs and the subject matter is interesting."
