The goth-inspired Arkansas rock band Evanescence, with its
Linkin Park-meets-Tori Amos sound backed by chugging guitars, easily
made it to the top of the charts in 2003 with its Wind-Up Entertainment
debut album, Fallen. Singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist/songwriter
Ben Moody formed the band at the end of the '90s after meeting in their
early teens during a youth camp, Moody said in a statement. I heard
Amy playing Meat Loaf's 'I'd Do Anything for Love' at the piano. So I
went over to meet her, and she started singing for me. I was pretty
much blown away, so I suckered her into joining a band with me.
As a duo, Evanescence didn't perform live, instead opting to release
EPs and the full-length Origin. Lee told the BBC that Evanescence was
mastering demos in Memphis, TN, when she and the band were discovered
by producer Pete Matthews. He shopped the songs to record companies in
New York, and Evanescence -- rounded out by bassist Will Boyd,
guitarist John LeCompt, and drummer Rocky Gray -- eventually landed a
contract with Wind-Up, the home of Creed. The soundtrack to the 2003
Ben Affleck action movie Daredevil brought success to Evanescence; the
begging Bring Me to Life, which appeared on the soundtrack along with
the ballad My Immortal, became a hit. (Paul McCoy, of labelmates 12
Stones, rapped on Bring Me to Life, which originated as a piano
ballad.) The songs proved to be a head start to Evanescence's future
hit album Fallen, produced by Dave Fortman (Boy Sets Fire, Superjoint
Ritual) and released in March 2003.
Evanescence ran head first into controversy promoting Fallen.
Originally, it was released in the Christian and secular markets;
however, the band's use of profanity during an interview with Rolling
Stone prompted its label, Wind-Up Records, to recall Fallen from
Christian stores. Ironically, 12 Stones are also labeled Christian.
Fallen surpassed double-platinum status, reaching the Top Ten in the
United States, including the Top Contemporary Christian Albums chart,
the Top Five in Canada, and number one in the United Kingdom. It spent
more than 100 weeks on Billboard's Top 200; Evanescence also managed to
pick up two Grammys (Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance)
for the 2003 awards.
During a European tour late that same year, however, Moody abruptly
left the group over apparent creative differences. Ex-Cold guitarist
Terry Balsamo soon replaced him in the band; he clicked with Lee and
the two became cohesive songwriting partners who worked to further
define Evanescence's classically influenced hard rock identity. The
band continued to tour nonstop for the next year, and they issued the
live album Anywhere But Home (recorded at a show in Paris) in November
2004 to hold over fans hungry for their follow-up. It also went
platinum. More internal band drama ensued -- including Balsamo
recovering from a stroke suffered in fall 2005 and Boyd's departure the
following summer -- before that album, The Open Door, finally appeared
in early October 2006. Tim McCord (ex-the Revolution Smile) joined up
in Boyd's place that August, switching from his usual guitar to bass.
Spearheaded by the single Call Me When You're Sober, the album
displayed a broader emotional range amid the band's evolving sound.
Evanescence played several intimate theater dates immediately following
the record's release before moving on to larger arena shows. ~
