    Evanescence have just released a new song, "My Immortal". Choose your poison: RealVideo or Windows Media Video.

    The song's a lot different from their previous singles, it's soft and slow. The video is a good match, in black and white.

    BTW, those videos are HTTP progressive, so you can download to your HD if you like :)

    It's not a new song. It appeared on the soundtrack for the movie Daredevil last year.

    I agree it is pretty good though.

    Yeah, and it's also on their album, but they just released the video, and made it into a single. It's actually a bit different from the album version, I don't know about on the Daredevil soundtrack.

    Yeah the new version sucks!

    They RUINED the perfectly fine softcore piano version by adding all this hardcore guitar ****!

    It totally ruined the song. God, at least I have the album version so I don't have to listen that that ****.

    WHY!?!?! Why!?!?!?!

    Okay, I don't feel that strongly about it :).

    Good band, but they have real trouble preforming live, the Lead vocal is always Flat. Case in point: The AMA this year.

    Apparently they tried it with guitars while performing live, and found that people liked it. I know what you mean though, I prefer the album version too.

    Yeah, I don't like them live at all.

    She just plain can't sing while trying to jump around the stage like Britney Spears on prozac.

    Well, even when she doesnt jump around she sounds bad.

    She sounds beautiful on the album though, which is good enough for me.

    Agreed, though it makes you wonder how many of today's "artists" can actually be called music artists.

    i love evanescence!!
    i think i followed someone's signature very late last year to the evanescence site and i fell in love!

    i really like my immortal. it's my favorite song on the whole album. i am now almost as big of an evanescence fan as i am a no doubt fan;)
    (i am one of the biggest no doubt fans:D mainly older stuff, like with sublime and beacon street collection.)

    wow, i'm sorry for getting a little more off topic than i should. kinda funny how evanescence and no doubt are my 2 favorite bands, and they are in almost no ways similar, except for a founding member leaving the band and a female singer. :p

    I especially love how it's quiet and melodic for the first half of the song then eventually builds up into a guiltar ballad. Almost as if the first half is a dream like unconscious state and then eventually awakes.

    i really like that analogy. it totally represents the song and some other songs on the album.

    I think that singers often hit the wrong notes when singing live because they can't hear themselves over the band. Yes, that's what monitor speakers are for, but it's still damn hard to hear oneself at a rock concert. Amy Lee was in all-state choir in high school. No, that's not the same as graduating from someplace like Chapman, but one must be a fairly good singer to make the cut.

    In general I like Evanescence but the radios down here need to pull the plug on "Bring me to life". Cannot believe some people are still requesting this song nor can I believe radios are still giving it the amount of airtime that it has been given.

    She should wear earplugs. Stick your finger in your ear and sing (preferably) a higher note. You can hear yourself a lot better.

    Notice how Mariah Carey always sticks a finger in her ear when singing high notes during performances.

    Thats my recommendation for Amy Lee.

    Problem: When she preforms live she is Flat.

    Solution: De-tune the guitar, bass and keys. (drums don't really matter.) As long as the are intune with themselves it doesn't matter if an 'E' is really and 'E' flat.

    Solution 2: don't try so hard, eg: Simon and Garfunkel @ the Emmies this year.

    Solution 3: Sing in tune, by raising her pitch.

    you're just saying that because i like evanescence.

    i know they're not perfect, but there's no reason to say that.

    stop it.

    I am sorry.
    I forgot to mention he was my brother, and he always hates everything I like just because he thinks it's gothic.

    Sorry again.

    they are a totally good band!!! WTF... if you think the album is gothic, try the stuff before the fallen album... that was some cool and odd electronic stuff... even bring me to life used to be better than the spoiled radio [c]rap infused nonsense thats on the radio...

    Their old stuff is weird. I prefer more vocal music so I don't really like their origins CD as much. But it is interesting, none-the-less.
