I would give the very breath from my chest
To give you all the things that my mind couldn't bear
 
I'd love to walk away and pull myself out of the rain
But I can't leave without you
I'd love to live without the constant fear and endless doubt
But I can't live without you

 

I wish this was the album version :defeated:

My third favourite ev song becomes my first.

It reminds me of Stranger Things at the start. I think ill make a video for Eleven with this song



And it you haven't heard their album snippets... I wasn't a fan of Bring Me To Lifes remake tbh. I kind of think BMTL and My Immortal should have stayed in the past but oh well. In just so glad all my other favourites get to see the light again.



Never Go Back and End Of The Dream sound like theyll be my favourites alongside Lacrymosa

Okay so I was never the biggest Evanescence fan, I liked a few songs, but honestly I just didn't care enough to dig deeper, but I saw Synthesis at a store today and decided to give it a listen when I got home and wow, I am LIVING FOR THIS! Her voice and the orchestral arrangements go sooo well together!

love this song

 

I always loved this <3

but the best older songs are indeed these:

 

fantasy love songs

 

and gothic anthems

 

 

 

 

Sidenote: I just love how diverse evanescence actually is, and no one gives them credit for them and how they actually manage to deliver ALL of these genres

  • fantasy romance (Anywhere, Before The Dawn)
  • dark fantasy (Together Again, Imaginary)
  • light fantasy (like fairy music, such as Swimming Home and Secret Door)
  • nostalgic (piano stuff like Breathe No More, My Immortal)
  • Acoustic (lots of their demos such as Understanding, October)
  • gothic (Bleed, Where Will You Go, Understanding)
  • Electro goth (Eternal)
  • Classical (Good Enough, The Last Song Im Wasting On You)
  • old school metal/rock (So Close, Lies, Whisper demos)
  • modern rock (What You Want, Made of Stone, The Change)
  • synthetic (everything of Synthesis album)
  • orchestra/choir (Ascension of the Spirit, Listen To The Rain, Lacrymosa)

So Ive been listening to Synthesis a lot cause I see Evanescence this weekend! And whenever I hear 'Unravelling' I think of the Love Witch, cause it reminds me of that movie's sound track. 

And it was just stuck in my head all day so Ive just spent the last 2 and a half hours making this

I went to their Synthesis Tour show last night. I knew it was going to be amazing, but I didn't know HOW amazing.

Amy clearly chose the songs that played in the hall before the show started cause there was Bjork, Nine Inch Nails, Bat for Lashes and Godfrapp playing out of the ones I knew. 

 

I knew I would love the orchestra parts, and I absolutely did! They played Lacrimosa (Mozart's original) before the band come on, and also Moonligt Sonata which was beautiful. They also did Sally's Song from The Nightmare Before Christmas, which was so sweet, since Amy has covered that. 

 

It was so surreal when Amy and the band came onstage. Amy was wearing a beautiful black, bell-sleeved gothic dress. Her voice was spot on the ENTIRE TIME. I honestly wasn't expecting that, because Evanescence songs are so difficult to master vocally on stage, but she hit every not and held every long note too (yes, even at the end of BMTL). Jen's backing vocals were amazing too, and really added to the performance.  Will on the drums was so enticing to watch too. The drums were one of my favourite sounds in the whole show. 

 

Amy genuinely looked so happy to be back in Australia and she thanked us multiple times throughout the show, and told us that her and the band are so thankful, that they love us, that we are all in this together, etc. Before they played My Immortal, Amy stated that despite it being her least favourite song, she decided to include it in Synthesis due to it being the song that has touched the most people.

So they did the entire Synthesis album, and at the end Speak To Me, Good Enough, and Swimming Home which was a beautiful close. 

 

My favourite song performed was Hi-Lo, but my absolute FAVOURITE moment was when Unraveling transitioned to the strings in Imaginary and the crowd just went 'ooooooooo'. It was so amazing, cause I knew it was coming (I've listened to Synthesis all the way through multiple times), but clearly most people didn't, so hearing and feeling everyone's satisfaction and surprise at that moment was one of the best musical experiences I've ever had! The whole show as an experience was just pure ART, and I could just feel that it was a mix of past, present and future of Evanescence. 

 

 

In a way, I feel like that was the high point of 2018 for me already, and I'm kind of wondering if Lana's show in march will match this  :toofunny:  because orchestra has always been able to make me shiver the most
