Evanescence?

Unsling your guitar, pull up a chair, and strum us a chord or two. Come on in to discuss music.

I like them beacuse they sound different. They are not just hard rock. She has kind of an opera voice and it goes beautifully with the guitar.

I'm told their earlier stuff was very good,but I haven't heard any of it. I wasn't too impressed with this album, but I agree she's got a nice voice.<BR><BR><i>If you REALLY want a good opera voice with this sort of music, listen to Nightwish That woman has a voice! </i><BR>I would hardly call them the same kind of music, but you're right about the voice. Do you know her name? Another thing,do you know the name of the woman in Dark Tranquility?

Tarja Turunen is the singer from Nightwish. It isn't really <i>the same</i> music, I know, but more of an opera voice combined with heavy guitars and drums and stuff. They both have their very own style, that is a fact. I think Tarja really has an opera voice, I don't think the singer of Evanescence can get that high and hold it that long. I've seen the live concert From Wishes to Eternity, and that is just SO awesome. But I don't want to go offtopic here <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>On your Dark Tranquility question: eh I looked it up on their website, but it doesn't name any woman.. <BR><BR>Martin Brändström - electronics<BR>Michael Nicklasson - bass<BR>Mikael Stanne - voice<BR>Martin Henriksson - guitars<BR>Anders Jivarp - drums<BR>Niklas Sundin - guitars <BR><BR>that's what it says.. are you sure about the name of the band..?

I definitely won't count it as punk. Not by a lon shot. Evanescence is more Gothic-rock like. <BR><BR>But it's definitely good, though I agree with Exar. Tarja's voice is better. Doesn't mean I don't like listening to Evanescence, though...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

evanescence rock! the first time i heard bring me to life i was so amazed by it. i was told it was very linkin park like but ive not heard much by them so i cant really say anything.its just that 1 song though that sounds like it. the others its just amy that sings. i got a copy of their album on sunday and its so cool. i love amy lees voice (i think thats her name please correct me if im wrong)its so different. i hate classing groups but i think evanescene are more gothic than punk. no way are they punk. its got lots of great piano solos which are so nice. im gonna try and learn to play some of them.<BR>its very smart how the music can go from heavy and then to calm ect... very different and cool. and her clothes!! i want them soo much!! sooo sooo cool!! <BR><BR>anyway, i dont wanna take over this tread or anything so ill shut up now and let everyone else talk for the now....<BR><BR>c ya soon<BR><BR>Arwens_maid x

I like her eyes most of all. I've always been a sucker for black hair and blue eyes. Makes me knees go weak. There's a reason why the music video of "Crawling" by Linkin Park is one of the best I know...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>(featuring the gorgeous model Katelyn Rosaasen btw...)<BR><BR>Anywho, it is kinda Linkin Park in a way, though it doesn't bring rock and rap together, but rock and gothic. Both add something very experimental to that mix though, which is what I like best.

I think I'm going to buy their album. Amy Lee sings like an angel. I also thinks she looks like my idea of how Arwen should look. I love the song Bring me to Life. The lyrics are very powerful.

Yupii, I`ve burned myself these days a cd with all the Evanescence songs i could find. I was eager to do this since one morning when i was awaken by one of their songs. Can`t remember where it was, or which it was, but I heard who`s playing. And that was enough <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>And now, sigh, i realise that i have to wait 2 more days to hear it! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif"border=0>
