Evanescence – Third Album Released
It’s been eight whole years since Evanescence shot to the top of the UK singles chart with their debut cut ‘Bring Me To Life’ and five years since they last released a studio album. Given the pseudo nu metal tendencies of that debut smash, the operatic leanings of singer Amy Lee’s voice and their brief dabble in the bonkers, yet extremely profitable world of Christian rock, they’ve been billed as proponents of just about every genre over the years.
Now back with their self-titled third record, in spite of the fact that pretty much the band’s whole line-up, bar Lee, has been dispensed with and replaced over the years, it’s pretty much business as you were, musically speaking.
‘What You Want’ You’ll have heard this one. A big thumping drumbeat and driving guitar riff kick things off, before giving way to a stomping chorus written with NFL stadiums in mind. They’re back alright.
