For some strange reason, I found myself listening to Evanescence a few days ago. And since then, I’ve pretty much been listening to it at work whilst at my desk. Its not the kind of thing I normally listen to, particularly at work. Here’s what I like about it:
- The soaring female vocals. She sings every song like it’s her last and it sounds like she really puts her soul into it.
- The excellent “clean” distorted guitar sound. Its a really nice tone and makes me think this must be what the Boss Metal Zone pedal sounds like, even though I’ve never heard that and I’m pretty sure the guitarist doesn’t use it.
- It reminds me of the time when nu-metal was king.
