Dayseeker Release Captivating Cover Of Evanescence’s “My Immortal”

Dayseeker releases their haunting cover of Evanescence’s song, “My Immortal.” The track will be on their upcoming acoustic album, Replica, which drops on April 19 via Spinefarm. The music video for the rendition is a homage to how stripped down from their original post-hardcore sound they’re looking to showcase to fans. Standing in a studio with vocalist Rory Rodriguez and guitarist Gino Sgambelluri, they paint a sad picture emphasizing the theme of isolated grief. When the chorus builds up, the emotional tangent Rodriguez rips into is simplistically gripping. It is a rare feat when it comes to reimagining classic works… Read more »


Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” Joins The Spotify Billions Club

“Bring Me To Life” has officially cracked into the Spotify Billions Club. The iconic track from Evanescence off of their debut album, Fallen, is still a standout for new and seasoned fans 20 years after its initial release. In 2023, the band celebrated their two-decade milestone with a deluxe vinyl and CD reissue. Demos from their popular tracks were included on the re-release, including a 2002 version of “Bring Me To Life.” This version doesn’t include the male vocalist feature from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones, as it does on the radio release and final album single. It’s more industrial… Read more »

Evanescence Splits With Guitarist, Drummer

And then there was one. With the recent departure of drummer Rocky Gray and guitarist John LeCompt, Amy Lee is now the only member of Evanescence left who has been in the band since the release of its smash 2003 breakout album, Fallen. LeCompt was either fired by the band or decided to move on – depending which account you believe – while Gray left of his own accord recently, making them the latest members of the group to fall by the wayside. Original guitarist/ co-founder Ben Moody left in 2003 , and bassist William Boyd quit last June after… Read more »


Finger Eleven And Evanescence Channel Elektra's Angst

With the recent trend of films based upon successful Marvel comics, the use of today’s most popular modern rock acts for the comic-flick soundtrack has become almost cliche. The use of catchy yet mildly dramatic rock hits to accompany the depressing emotions often felt by the superheroes has already been played out with both Spiderman soundtracks as well as in movies like The Punisher and Daredevil. As Jennifer Garner returns to the big screen as the heroic Elektra, director Rob Bowman (Reign Of Fire and The X-Files) opted to stick to the original template. Elektra The Album, which is set… Read more »


Evanescence Eyeing Late-2005 Release for New Album

Los Angeles – Evanescence singer Amy Lee hopes to have a follow up to the goth-rock group’s two-year-old mega-hit “Fallen” in stores by the end of the year. “I knew it was going to take a while, and it is. We’re obviously taking longer than the average band,” she told Billboard recently. “Fallen,” released in March 2003, has sold 6 million copies in the United States alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Last February, the band won two Grammys, for best new artist and hard rock performance. In addition to writing individually, the members have done a little collaborating, Lee said.… Read more »


Evanescence's New Sound Is Reminiscent Of… Evanescence

Where Evanescence were once propelled solely by a pair of songwriters, the creative process has become a lot more democratic since the departure of guitarist Ben Moody. And yet Amy Lee continues to get the ball rolling the way she always has: behind closed doors. “I write by myself initially,” the band’s singer explained. “That’s the way I’ve always written, just working on pure thought by myself. Then I bring it to the table with whoever I’m collaborating with.” After Moody split in late 2003, he was replaced on tour by former Cold guitarist Terry Balsamo, who permanently joined the… Read more »
