NEVERMORE has tapped a "very talented" Hungarian guitar player by the name of Attila Voros to play second guitar on the band's upcoming tour. The group states, "Attila has already performed with Warrel Dane's [NEVERMORE singer] solo project, and realizing how good he is, we decided he would be a perfect addition for the summer festivals we are about to embark on in Europe."
The drum tracks for "The Obsidian Conspiracy" were completed in the group's hometown of Seattle with SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers, who previously worked with Dane on the singer's solo debut, "Praises to the War Machine". Longtime friend and collaborator Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ARCH ENEMY, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD) once again handled mixing duties. The captivating and dynamic cover art was once again created by the great Travis Smith (OPETH, KATATONIA) .
