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”.

Review from Variety Music:

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.

Evanescence on Twitter after the first Synthesis show

Overdrive Music Magazine with Jen Majura: “Maybe the whole world thinks I’m nuts. Well then the whole world will think that I’m nuts.”

Jen Majura

“First of all, thank you for the outstanding, splendid review of the album. I read this, I held my breath, and I was… I can’t believe… that was so good. You so got the idea of the whole thing, it was perfect.”
Well, with that out of the way, knowing I had properly wrapped my head around the concept of Jen Majura’s upcoming solo album, InZENity (Out November 24th), I managed to pry a very busy Jen away from practicing her newest instrument, the theremin, for a bit of a chat about everything going on in her world. But first, allow me to back track for a minute.

“Jen who?” You ask?  Bassist, guitarist, singer, music school founder and rat mum, Jen is known for her work in the bands Black Thunder Ladies, Equilibrium, and Knorkator, but most recently, since 2015, solo artist and lead guitarist of the rock band Evanescence. Overdrive sat down with her to chat all things InZENityEvanescence, and more.

We began by speaking about life following the small-town musician’s addition to Evanescence back in August 2015. Majura described it as being “a trip,” adding that “life has changed drastically, but if you think about it as a musician, who wouldn’t want to experience a beautiful adventure like this? I mean, I get to see places I’ve never been before. I’m so excited to go to Australia next year for the first time. (With Evanescence, performing Synthesis Live in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in February 2018.) Mainly of course, it’s work, but I’ve found not only a great work environment, I’ve found like a new family, and great, great friendship.”

Jen likens her relationship with lead vocalist, Amy Lee as being “soul twins,” and went on to reiterate the importance of band members having these strong friendships by saying,
“You can have the greatest guitar player and the fastest drummer or whatever, but when that person sucks as a human being, you don’t want to tour with that person because it’s the human relationship that’s so important. It’s only maximum two hours on stage each night, but what about the other 22 hours of the day?”

NEWS.COM.AU: Evanescence have removed the “compromise” rap from biggest hit

Re-recording their biggest hits with an orchestra means Evanescence’s Amy Lee has been able to remove *that* rap from Bring Me to Life

EVANESCENCE’S Amy Lee is rewriting history on the band’s new album.

Their fourth release Synthesis is the opposite of an unplugged effort — rather Lee has re-recorded the band’s old material an even more dramatic and bombastic manner, with a full orchestra and heavy electronics.

That includes their breakthrough 2003 hit Bring Me To Life. And there’s something missing from the version you know — that rap, by guest vocalist Paul McCoy.

“God bless the rap, it’s part of what got us on the radio I guess,” Lee says. “At least according to all the rules of radio that I don’t agree with or understand. The rap wasn’t part of our original idea or sound, it was a compromise in many ways. So to be able to go back to the original vision for the song was great.”

It’s not uncommon for an artist to go back and record their songs — Lee embraced being to able to revisit the band’s signature hit after performing it live at every concert they’ve played since it was release.

“The recording of a song that ends being the one you hear the most through history is usually when the song was just freshly written. You’re still learning it yourself and getting used to what the notes are and how the parts go. That’s true for Bring Me to Life for sure. After doing it live for so long there’s different vocal choices I’ve made and different things we got to use in this version.”

And no rap.

“I forget the rap’s there now to be honest,” Lee says. “At the time it was a big issue, it was our first single. I wanted people to understand who we were. That’s a struggle you always fight as an artist. If we only had the one hit, if no one ever heard from us again then nobody would understand who we were. We’ve made it past that point so the rap doesn’t make me angry any more. I’m so glad to put a new version out there without the rap though.”

Amy Lee rinde honor a Whitney Houston en concierto en Argentina

Amy Lee rinde honor a Whitney Houston en concierto en Argentina

I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Durante el concierto de Evanescence en Argentina el pasado 2 de Mayo en Tecnopolis, Buenos Aires, Amy Lee se dio el gusto de hacer un cover de “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” de Whitney Houston justo el día en el que la canción fue lanzada hace 30 años atrás.

Aquí te presentamos el cover en vivo y la explicación que la mismísima Amy Lee indica:

Somebody told me that “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” came out 30 years ago today, and I had to throw it into the set. #whitneyhouston inspired me tremendously when I was a young girl, and her tragedy is something that deeply affected me. I loved her. I think about the lyrics to this song and how alone she might have actually felt deep down, and it breaks my heart. We felt so much love in this room in Buenos Aires tonight, my favorite show on the tour so far. It is truly amazing what music can do. We are one. ❤️ (sorry for the washy stage audio. I promise I’ll record it someday) -love, Amy (Ps thank you @jen_majura AND @ttmccord for recording it, the fact that you both were makes me tear up a little!)???

Una publicación compartida de Evanescence (@evanescenceofficial) el

Traducción

Alguien me dijo que “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” salió hace 30 años hoy, y tuve que ponerla en el set. #whitneyhouston me inspiró tremendamente cuando era una niña, y su tragedia es algo que me afectó profundamente. La amo. Pienso en las letras de esta canción y lo sola que podría haberse sentido en el fondo, y me rompe el corazón. Sentimos mucho amor en esta presentación en Buenos Aires esta noche, mi concierto favorito en la gira hasta ahora. Es realmente increíble lo que la música puede hacer. Somos uno. ❤️ (lo siento por el audio del escenario, prometo que lo grabaré algún día) -amor, Amy (Ps gracias @jen_majura Y @ttmccord por grabarlo, el hecho de que ambos lo hicieran me hace llorar un poco!) ???
