The self-titled, third studio release from Evanescence, produced by Grammy winning Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush), contains the hard-driving anthems and introspective ballads the hard rock group has mastered since their breakout debut in 2003. The 12 tracks demonstrate the growth of the band's writing style and lyrical content.
Front woman Amy Lee says, "It's about freedom," when describing the album's first single, the hard-charging,"What You Want." Other songs include "Lost in Paradise," which Lee calls, "The most intimate song on the album" and "My Heart is Broken," a track driven by Lee's signature lyrics and piano playing.
Backed by the heavy guitar sound of Terry Balsamo and pounding drums of Will Hunt, the new album is powerful and aggressive. "We've been working on this music for a very long time and seeing it all finally come together is a really amazing feeling." Lee continues, "This album is about us and also our fans. We re combining the best of Evanescence with some new attitude and we re just dying to share it."
