"Fashion at the speed of life"

Album Cover

We waited years for this band to come out with a new album and everyone knows the story of founding member Ben Moody who left the group originally due to problems with drugs and alcohol but has gone on to write amazing songs for Pink, Kelly Clarkson and countless others as well as formed a new band, The Fallen which consists of all the other original members with him. Leaving the star of Evanescence, Amy Lee Hartzler to form a new band and reevaluate her sound. Amy Lee may have not written the songs that we loved off of the Fallen album but the ones she did write landed her on the American Top 40 such as “Call me when your sober”.

In this album, the beats are similar to Rev Theory, with long guitar rifts, drum solos and a strange absence of violins. The haunting voice and poetic verses still exist and these are the elements of Evanescence that we loved. The band is totally filled with new members but they are talented, among them Terry Balsamo who was the guitarist for the band Cold and Troy McLawhorn who was the guitarist for Seether and Dark New Day. The album comes in two formats, a hard cover featuring 12 songs and a paperback featuring a video (what you want) and 4 bonus tracks. One of the bonus tracks features a ballad which is not seen in the hard cover edition.

The cost is relatively low and this CD is worth the price. Evanescence returns to the open door album format but this is one door we should all walk through.

Album went on sale October 11, 2011.

  1. It is little doubt that this is the best singer in the world! What makes a singer isn’t their vibe, it’s their voice! I don’t like when people judge singers on things that just aren’t that important. Remember, they are entertainers, not congressmen! Let them do their thing and enjoy the melodies!

  2. Yes I agree Amy Lee does have the best voice i have ever heard but i also love Kerli’s voice too. We are not judging anyone we are simply stating the facts for fans who are new to Evanescence.
