Evanescence

Evanescence

As a music fan who tends to lean more towards indie, post–punk and dance–pop, Evanescence have always been a bit of a dirty pleasure that I've always been a bit embarassed to admit. Written off as a Christian angst–rock group that should be kept exclusively to 13 year old goth girls with dyed black hair and far too much eye makeup, Evanescence have never been the most fashionable of bands to like, but you can't deny the catchy, moshy pop appeal of their music.

Like most other Evanescence fans, I went to see Daredevil, which featured two songs: Bring Me To Life (which afterwards became a #1 hit in the UK) and My Immortal (before it was bastardised upon single release). I came home and pre–ordered their debut album, Fallen, on import and thanks to Amazon got it the day before its' release. It's a common story, and one which has been repeated several times with other bands whose mainstream appeal has been catapulted by a popular film. (See: The Shins)

Fallen, upon arrival, turned out to be rather good. In the meantime I've also purchased two of Evanescence's earlier demo/EP work: Origin, a demo, and a self-titled EP. Now, almost 3 years later, Evanescence are preparing to release a second album, The Open Door.

The first single, Call Me When You're Sober is, in my opinion, rather good. You can listen on Evanescence's MySpace or as a direct stream (see below for links). It's more of the same, but perhaps slightly more refined – it's out sometime in the future, it seems.
