EVANESCENCE + Amy Lee's solo stuff

Postby SHEAKENBAKEN » Sun Aug 09, 2015 11:53 pm

So obviously there are some well known fans of Evanescence here; (looking at you Duane :P ) I was just wondering how many other people might be aware of or interested in the band.

I personally discovered them from my dad playing the Fallen CD at least once every time while he painted at home. Then I dabbled in some of their other albums now I generally think Amy Lee has one of the better female rock voices today. Their musicality can sometimes be underwhelming but they do what's in good taste for their music.

They recently got a new lead guitarist (Jen Majura) after their former lead guitarist left the band this year. I'm excited to see what she can bring to the band maybe differently or better than Terry Balsamo, and it'll be nice to have another female component other than Amy.

Some of my personal favorites of theirs:

So what are your guys' favorites? What most do you like about the band? Are you excited to see Evanescence back after their hiatus?

"Hello" was incredible.

I also liked "Everybody's Fool".

I know some people are upset that Ben Moody left, and the band sound changed and all... but seriously,
**** Ben Moody. Apparently, he was abusive towards Amy. If that's the case, the piece of crap deserved to leave Evanescence.

When he explains the truth of why he left Evanescence, it sounds like he's making it all about himself, saying that everyone has HIM to thank. (Because in his eyes, HE left, so that Evanescence could continue on.

NOTE: Okay, okay, I'm just being a drama queen here. Sorry. I'll try not to do it again.

I just got done listening to the song 'breathe no more'. I liked it. It was nice to hear a song stripped down with just Amy and a piano.

Also, I liked the song 'field of innocence'.

She's definitely my favorite female vocalist, for sure.

I also liked 'call me when ur sober', and 'wat u want' and 'anywhere'

I'd love to see this band but they aren't getting anywhere close to here on this tour. Hoping for some additional dates.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

loved the original evanescence.. only went down hill from there.. Ben's departure took the creativity and talent out of the band...

Perhaps musically. You cant deny Amy's great singing voice.

They're still around? I love the "Fallen" album, it's fantastic. It still sounds as fresh now as when it was first released. I never really listened to the other two much. I think I'm going to have to. :)

Your Star and The Only One are my two favorites from this band, but I LOVE Never Go Back, My Heart is Broken, Oceans, and The Change from the third album.
