Evanescence

WATCH INSTEAD
Liner Notes

Evanescence—now comprising Amy Lee, drummer Will Hunt, guitarist/background vocalist Jen Majura, bassist Tim McCord and lead guitarist Troy McLawhorn—have always thrived on a deliciously dissonant sound, a potion of gothic imagery, metal guitars and pop craftsmanship that produced early hits like "My Immortal" (from 2000 demo Origin) and "Bring Me to Life," the Fallen smash that would solidify the group's signature recipe. The relationship between organic and electronic has always been at the core of Evanescence's music, and on the sprawling Synthesis, Lee has brought it to its most dramatic form."


That is the basic idea of the title of everything: Synthesis," said Lee, who joined Paste at Steinway Hall in Manhattan in October 2017 for an exclusive listen to Synthesis and a gorgeous solo rendition of the band's "Good Enough."
