SVCRED’s ‘Nevermore’ is a slick, dramatic take on hard rock with a dark, decidedly Gothic approach. These guys say they have “become a regular fixture of the Melbourne metal scene,” and that their “unique blend of groove laden riffs and gothic ambience continues to captivate their audiences.” They say this track, which is “inspired in part by Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘The Raven’… is about the loss of a loved one, and the void their absence leaves behind.” The band definitely brings a nice orchestral, almost romantic approach to the hard rock sound. In some ways, it seems like they have a lot in common with acts like Cradle of Filth or Dimmu Borgir in terms of layering and intensity. At the same time, there’s a sensitive, whiny edge reminiscent of AFI or My Chemical Romance. This is a nice track from a cool band. Check out ‘Nevermore’ below!
