Nevermore Frontman To Begin Recording Solo Debut In August 07

Nevermore frontman Warrel Dane is scheduled to enter the studio in early August to begin recording his solo debut, tentatively due in early 2008.

In a September 2006 interview with Metal-Rules.com, Dane stated about the upcoming solo CD, "I've been working on it for like the last year off and on, just writing songs with Peter Wichers, and at some point we'll finish them then go in the studio . . . It doesn't sound like Nevermore, and I think, you know, if it did, there wouldn't be much point in doing a side project. If it sounded like Nevermore I think it would be a little redundant . . . Of course it's metal! Kind of like metal-infused hard rock, I think. It's different and it's a chance for me to explore myself — explore myself in other ways! [laughs] Well, for me, and for Peter from Soilwork as well, it was kind of a chance for us both to 'step outside the box,' because people expect a certain thing from both those bands and with this we don't have to fulfill any expectations. We can do whatever we want."

Dane stated a year ago that his solo debut would include an appearance by Warrel's former Sanctuary (pre-Nevermore) bandmate Dave Budbill (Zerocreep) on drums.

Ex-Soilwork guitarist-turned-producer Peter Wichers has issued the following update:

"Well I must admit that it is nice to be back East after being in LA for a while. Nashville feels a lot like Sweden in many ways and me and the family love it already.

I am taking some time off for the summer to spend with my family and once we come back I plan on finding a place to set up a small studio to track the future projects that I'm working on.

The Warrel Dane solo record is planned to start in the first week of August and as of now I have written about eight together, and Warrel is also collaborating with Matt Wicklund (Himsa) for a few songs.

Keep checking in from time to time on my MySpace because I plan on putting up a sample of the new Nuclear Blast album that I just finished.

Have a great summer!"
