    I was watching Music Choice today, temporzing in doing my homework, when I, Voyager came on. They always have those little pop up fact things and one of them said: "Nevermore's Dreaming Neon Black was inspired by the disappearance of lead singer Warrel Dane's girlfriend."

    Anyone know what thats all about?

    religious mission, disappeared years before DNB was written. never heard from again. when he was writing the lyrics for the album, he had dreams of her coming to him, her drowning, etc.

    that's the extremely summed up version

    I had no idea that the album was a true story...


    Dreaming Neon Black has pretty much been my favorite album for the past 4 years since I first got it. This revelation means a lot. I have gotten the shivers.

    Anyone have anything more about this? That whole CD actually has given me shivers since I left it on while going to sleep.

    me assume its quite a private thing, but the general spiel is that warrel had a g/f whom disappeared with some religious cult and his dreams about her urged him to write DNB.

    Actually the whole religious cult and religious mission thing I have never seen in an interview with warrel. I did read once that he said that she was "missing, presumed dead". So i'm skeptical about the whole religious thing. Of course if someone knows of an interview with warrel where he says those things, I'd change my mind.

    the negative religious contexts of the lyrics would point to his emotions at the event being aimed at religious brainwashing:

    "You paint the sky in obsidian lies
    And come what may never will I know how you changed time
    The riptide lies ahead, all my passions now are dead
    I can see the path you never thought to follow
    I feel so hollow
    You are diseased
    You are deceiver"



    "Again it poured over me in waves.
    When she left with them she said I must
    break free from the dark. I tried to tell her
    of their poison, she chose not to hear.
    She was never seen again"

    Yeah, the whole middle of the album has a lot to do with religion (Poison God Machine, The Lotus Eaters, Etc...) and I never understood why. I suppose I should let Warrel have some privacy but gosh darn it, if he wanted it to be private he shouldn't have made a CD about it! Oh well, I'd still like to hear what anyone else think about it.

    "She never would betray the world I never saw
    Blinded eyes that never see shattered into infinity"
    - "I Am the Dog"

    seems like religion to me.

    when Max disappears with a religious cult and you write a concept album about it, i guess we'll have a definitive answer...

    This Max is not the same as Fucked-Up-Mad-Max.

    It is practically impossible to outdo that one in the cult of doom.

    This is true.

    There really isn't anything more doom than throwing yourself off a bridge in a fit of drunken depression.
