Gotta love the Nevermore. "Crystal Ship" is an interesting choice though.

branded: I trust Nevermore completely. I just think it's an odd choice for a cover for them.

#9 for the truth.

From their Self Titled "Nevermore" to "This Godless Endeavour" they have yet to fail me once.

If they're as good as their cover of Sound Of Silence once, there'll be nothing to worry about.

honestly i hated the sound of silence cover, but I loved Warrel Dane's take on Patterns (my reflection was even better) and every other cover they've done. I trust nevermore as well, can't wait to hear the tea party cover. I dig tea party think they'll make a killer cover of it. but the doors? not so sure. we'll see. i don't think they'll make a bastardized version of it though.

7^Bg nice one
As much as i hate covers and love the doors, it actually wasnt as bad as i thought it would be so i guess props to nevermore for not bjorking it up....Mr Morrison was one in a billion so its kinda hard for me to except or be open minded to any band doing any doors covers

I wasn't a huge fan of "The Sound of Silence" either. But I wasn't really a huge fan of his riffs of of that entire album anyway.
