    I grew up with Warrel, Nevermore, and you guys all being a large part of my life. This wasn't the best way to have all the nostalgia come back but it reminds me how much I cherish it.

    RIP Warrel. I'll always remember the influence you had on me and probably helping me survive my teen years, as well as the inspiration you were to me. Thanks for the experience, I'll never forget it.

    Damn, that really really sucks. Rest in peace Warrel, and my condolences to friends and family.

    Sadly never got to witness Nevermore live, and now it will stay that way.

    Shit man, gutted to read this. WD was a huge influence on all of us, and many of us are friends to this day because of Nevermore. Hell, even this forum was part of my life for so long, and the music much, much more so.

    See you again sometime, WD!

    Jeff's word from few months back:
    "Maybe one day, I would really like to be able to talk to Warrel again face to face and sit down and talk through all of our problems that we had and stuff like that."
    Fuck, it kicked me right in the feels

    Really sucks. Found Nevermore right after their self titled. Super dark time, music hit the spot in every way. It wasn't until DNB that I realized he wasn't only a great vocalist, but an amazing writer and poet.

    By far my favorite artist, absolutely cherished his vocals and lyrics.

    It always irked me that he was seemingly always the one dragging their feet with new projects. Sad to know the odds of his novel ever seeing the day of light is slim to none.

    Amazing talent. Sad day today...

    btw. Since this conversation has been started in some other articles - how old was he? Some sources say 48, some 56

    Dear Warrel,
    Nevermore of your witty and poetic metaphors;
    Nevermore a raw new soundfile through the phone;
    Nevermore a warm and giddy 'Happy birthday Iris!' by you and Alex Seretis
    from a crappy phonebooth in Greece;
    Nevermore 'hi Iris' through the speakers in a packed and sweaty venue,
    Nevermore to find out what you once wanted to tell me about that stone;
    Forever will I miss the sound of your voice, that sweet and beautiful baritone.


    And it's painfully crystal clear to me
    That in the garden you will be
    And live forever
    In memory​

    R.I.P. W.D.
    ♡ • ~Nevermore to feel the pain~ • ♡

    -X-
    Iris​

    Goodbye Warrel, i hope you have found peace of mind and
    that you will have your mother at your side, once again.
    -
    Much love and a warm heart to Warrels family, bandmembers,
    dearest friends and my fellow Neverheads. You are in my thoughts.

    Pretty easy to figure out if you consider refuge denied was 88, and he was in serpents knight in 83. ;)

    I remember on Jaime Jasta podcast he said he was born on 1969 so that's where the confusion came from. Man he trolled us hard

    Right... I've spent my work breaks in my car, just blasting Nevermore as loud as I can, and I don't think it's hit me yet that the man who sounds so fierce and energetic in those recordings is gone.

    Sure the dude looks like he's 13 on these pictures ;)

    Not that this matters though. He was young enough to have had the time to give us a couple more things to read and hear. Things about the absurdity of life, for example, which we are all witnessing right now.

    WTF??? This just ruined an otherwise decent day for me. RIP. First Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Martin Eric Ain and now WD. Sucks.

    Glad I had the chance to check out Nevermore back in 05 on Long Island.
