Evanescence

With their unique blend of haunting, atmospheric and gothic-flavored rock, multi-platinum-selling group Evanescence first broke into the mainstream in the early 2000s, bringing much-needed disruption to the male-dominated hard-rock scene of the time.

Fronted by one of the most dynamic women in rock —singer-pianist Amy Lee — Evanescence had humble beginnings. Initially a duo, the band was formed when Little Rock, AR-based Amy and guitarist Ben Moody met at camp. The teens played and recorded throughout the latter-half of the ‘90s, eventually filling out the group with guitarist John LeCompt, drummer Rocky Gray and bassist Will Boyd. The quintet released their full-length debut, Fallen, in 2003 to wide commercial success. Having sold over 17 million copies worldwide to-date, the album peaked at Number Three on the Billboard 200—bolstered by hit singles “Bring Me To Life,” “My Immortal” and “Going Under”—and earned the band five GRAMMY® nominations including two wins: Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance.

He claimed that a vision of the apocalypse came to him in a dream, and that he saw his own damnation. In his authorized biography he tells a story of a plane flight during which the overheated engines appeared in the darkness of night to be on fire. He prayed to God and promised that if the plane landed safely he would change his ways.
