    NEVERMORE: 'STEVE SMYTH Was The Missing Link In Our Dysfunctional Brotherhood' - Apr. 29, 2004

    NEVERMORE have issued an official statement confirming former TESTAMENT axeman Steve Smyth as the group's new second guitarist. The statement reads as follows:

    "After touring since 1995 with a number of different guitarists in the second slot NEVERMORE are happy to announce that we have added Steve Smyth on a permanent basis, the revolving door has been retired! After awhile touring with Steve it became obvious to us that he was the missing link in our dysfunctional brotherhood! So now we approach the future officially as a five-piece band!"

    Smyth, whose departure from TESTAMENT was exclusively reported here on April 20, took part in the filming of NEVERMORE's video for the track "I, Voyager", off their most recent album, "Enemies Of Reality".

    Steve Smyth should be an excellent addition to the band. Him and Jeff form an excellent guitar duo.

    Smyth played with Vicious Rumors for a while, and I think he might have some writing credits there.

    I think the band is at their best with two guitarists writing the music...look at Politics and DNB. This is nothin but good news.

    The first thing I ever heard WD say about Steve was "He's one of us." I think I'd take that as an insult, but after hangin' with Steve a bit I totally understand what he meant.

    CONGRATS DUDE!!! You're in for a hella of a fun time. (If your liver survives!)

    This is going to be very interesting. I really liked what Tim Calvert brought to the band. I'm hoping that Steve can bring an incredibly fresh (and equally fucked-up) set of ideas to the band. :) :headbang:

    I just gotta say congrats to Steve, if, of course, this is what he truly wants to do. And hey, he said he'd call me and never did! A couple trips out of the Bay Area and he turns into an asshole! :D :D




    Hmmm.... will Stevie be selling (giving) his 6 string BC Rich's (to me)? ;)
