Track-By-Track of Synthesis – Part 2

Track by Track 2

Through the official facebook of the band Amy Lee is doing a track-by-track of the album Synthesis. Read the second part with four more songs here:

001LACRYMOSA
“The original was based on Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ and the movie Amadeus, which is why it was a natural choice to include. It was something I’d wanted to do for a long time before we did it on The Open Door album. ‘Lacrymosa’ is one of my favorite pieces of classical music. I’ve always been proud of the song. To do it now, and get to pump up the orchestra and classical music aspect of it, feels really good. I threw in a little bit of opera in there instead of the choir in the original. I feel like it’s a cool piece of who I am. Not on a corny level, just a teeny-tiny taste.”

Amy Lee on Being a Woman in Music: ‘I Have Fought So Many Fights’

Evanescence

The Evanescence leader discusses her band’s ‘Synthesis album, and the inspiration behind single “Imperfection.”

Thirty years ago, when metal and hard rock ruled the airwaves, the genre had few female artists in the spotlight. During the ’90s, female-fronted bands like Lacuna Coil, Arch EnemyWithin Temptation and Nightwish started building their careers, but no woman in the scene achieved significant mainstream crossover success.

Then in 2003, Evanescence released its major-label debut, Fallen. Breakout track “Bring Me to Life” introduced the Arkansas quintet’s sound: singer-pianist Amy Lee’s siren vocals paired with crunchy guitars and gothic-flavored atmospheres. To date, the album has sold 8 million copies in the United States alone, according to Nielsen Music.

Lee’s success expanded the opportunities for other rock acts featuring women, and since then, groups like ParamoreThe Pretty Reckless and Halestorm have made their mark. Pretty Reckless frontwoman Taylor Momsen, who cites Evanescence as being her first concert when she was about 10 years old, considers Lee an innovator. Continue reading

Two totally different magazines reviewed the second Evanescence show from the current tour of Synthesis at Greek Theatre in Los Angeles which took place last Sunday, October 15th.

The first one, is from Variety magazine which titling the show as a “Amp Up the Drama With 20-Piece Orchestra” and the second from RockRevolt Magazine describe the perfomance as a “live performance created a cinematic and momentous sound, melodies that resonated across the entire venue”, adding that “this did not deter a single fan, however, as the audience was absolutely blown away by the performance”.

Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee made the leap from goth-rocker to opera diva last night, as she and the band led a 20-piece orchestra through a sold-out performance at the Greek Theatre Sunday night, previewing the group’s fourth album, “Synthesis,” which comes out November 10.

Both the concert and the album — Evanescence’s first since its self-titled 2011 effort — offer a reimagining of the group’s catalog with a full symphony orchestra, arranged by none other than Beck’s father, veteran arranger David Campbell, whose collaboration with the band dates back to its first album. The concert was the second of Evanescence’s current “Synthesis Live” tour, as they team up with a different symphony orchestra (under the direction of conductor Susie Seiter) in each city for an 80-minute, 18-song set.
