    I love Evanescence--not nearly as much as Linkin Park, duh--and it pisses me off when they're constantly compared to LP. What's up with that? I've heard the 'linkin park with a hot chic singing' line so often I'm gonna barf. I can maybe see the "nu metal" thing going on but seriously, I don't know why they're compared so often. Anyways, I like both. What are your thoughts?

    Evanescence and Linkin Park are so not alike. The only reason Linkin Park (THE BEST) and Evanescence (NOT BAD) are compared because " Bring Me To Life" is similar to the Linkin Park style (rap/rock). All of her other songs are no way similar to Linkin Park.

    I'd like to know what that is to you.

    I think they're not even close to being similar...not one bit.

    gah - I'm not even sure what new metal is, now that I think of it. I guess the somewhat heavier [than some other mainstream rock] guitar lines...But LP's are quite a bit more complex to me.

    How about we just call it rock? It's easier that way. :)

    Sorry, I just think it's weird when people say nu metal/new metal or whatever the crap, and then when I ask them what that is, the don't know. Just trying to help you out; not trying to antagonize you.

    I made a thread about this months ago.

    Evanescence and Linkin Park are nothing alike except the fact that they both make very epic and awesome music.

    And Paul McCoy is NOT rapping in "Bring Me To Life."

    I can garauntee if Evanescence had a male vocalist you wouldn't have said that.

    I hate close-minded people like you who think that just because there's a female lead singer, they're pop. They're not pop, they're Gothic metal.

    I remember that. I was about to say.


    I guess in some ways Evanescence is a bit (notice that I didn't say completely) like LP in some ways. My Immortal reminds me of My December, not because of the lyrics or the tune, just the mood of the song. But Evanescence and LP have their own type of music. They are not in any way the same.


    That was dumb.

    A lot of people think it's poppy because of the female singer. I think she's perfect for the sound, and the fact that she doesn't scream or isn't really gritty doesn't make them any softer.

    The Cranberries have a female singer and I've never seen anyone call them pop.

    Evanesence is rock, Linkin Park is rock. I don't know why you guys like to branch out on these awkward genres; it only makes it more complex and then arguments start.

    No, it's nu metal!
    No, it's goth rock!
    No, it's pop rock!


    No, it's rock.

    Well, you have to understand that it's probably America's fault it's like that. But I like to classify my music.

    To me, rock would be something like Creed. Metal would be Disturbed. Heavy metal would be Mudvayne. Rap-rock would be Linkin Park. Gothic metal would be Evanescence.

    It just goes by how heavy the music is to determine what genre it is. To me, if it's got driving guitars, it's not pop, lol.

    Nu-metal just means new metal. It's just a broad term to classify all the new metal bands as.

    Not so much. It is actually a whole genre.

    For one, I'm glad Terry isn't on or she's probably edit all your grammar errors.

    Second, Evanescene's music is not 'poppy'. They're a lot heavier live, so I suggest you not judge them all by their CD. Evanescence is no Mudvane... They're no Otep, they're not a metal band where they scream their lungs out at the crowd and swear their heads off in between. They're more artistic than that. Their songs form art. I doubt you'd understand that, but Evanescence is NOT pop, and hey, I think a lot of people agree that Amy Lee (vocalist) DOES have a great voice.

    I'd really hate to see you as a music reviewer... No offense, but the way you justify your music doesn't make sense--like your grammar.
