On March 9th, Century Media Records will release The Complete Collection by NEVERMORE - an impressive 12-disc CD box set including all studio releases, the Year Of The Voyager live album as well as a disc of rarities. Limited to 2,000 copies, it also includes a numbered collector's certificate, an 80-page booklet (with lyrics, photos, liner notes) plus a poster flag depicting the band's line-up on 2005's masterpiece This Godless Endeavor. Guitarist Jeff Loomis and drummer Van Williams have been involved in this project since early October 2017, with Williams also creating the artwork for this set. Featuring quotes from historical interviews with main songwriters Jeff Loomis and Warrel Dane, The Complete Collection offers a detailed journey through one of metal's most consistent and inspired discographies, but it was never meant to be a tribute.
