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.

At the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, in honor of the presence of the co-creators of the end title theme song “Speak To Me”, Amy Lee sang for the first time live her single that recorded for the soundtrack of the thriller movie “Voice From The Stone”, one of the most anticipated songs of the fans.

One of the attendees was the composer and songwriter, Michael Wandmacher who posted on instagram and shared moments with the orchestra conductor Susie Seiter and Amy Lee.

Susie Seiter: "With current attention to women’s work issues I wanted to celebrate my longtime partnership with @michael_wandmacher who took a chance on a very green but hard working young girl 13 years ago and treated me with so much respect and belief in my potential where SO many others just saw nothing. He opened an enormous door to propel my career as a conductor and orchestrator and I am extremely grateful for him and others like him who are part of the movement to hire qualified women and make the world right. #hirewomen #workfamily" via Instagram

Amy started saying “don’t judge me on this one, this isn’t an Evanescence song” just before the singer performed the beautiful song with the orchestra in the second show of the tour in support of the upcoming album “Synthesis”.

Right after sang the song she added, “special thanks to my co-creators, co-composers, co-writers, co-everything on that song cause they are all here tonight” and then continued singing “Good Enough” and ended up the show with the lovely “Swimming Home”.

While in New York City, Evanescence’s Amy Lee sat down with Paste Music for a personal Q&A session at Steinway Hall before venturing off on their Synthesis Live tour on October 14th.

When asked to describe the concept behind Synthesis, Lee said, “This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars.” She went on to say, “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation.”

Their upcoming Synthesis album and tour features a modern reworking of some of their classic songs with a full orchestra and electronica elements. The album will also include two brand new Evanescence songs, one of which is the newly released “Imperfection.”
