Concert Review- Evanescence: Synthesis Live

Amy Lee of Evanescence graced us with her live performance of their new album “Synthesis” on Friday night. They had a full Orchestra playing all the tracks which made the live performance much more powerful. She opened the show singing “Never Go Back” playing the Piano then transitioning to the middle of the stage as the band began doing their orchestral pieces. 

The latest album from the band includes a mix of previous released songs from their first three albums remastered into orchestral pieces with two new tracks as well “Hi-Lo” and “Imperfection”. This is their first album to fall under the “classical music” genre. 
 
When Evanescence released their first album “Fallen” in 2003, their genre was Alternative Metal to which they released two more albums after that of the same genre with “Evanescence” being their last album until now which was released in 2011.
 
In 2012, the band went into a hiatus to where Amy Lee (the lead singer of the band) involved herself with her own solo projects which involved her experimenting with classical pieces. Then in May 2017, the band decided to end their hiatus to make a new album stripping away all the electric guitars.
 
I got the chance to hear the album before the live tour and I was amazed by how good it sounded. This kind of arrangement makes Amy Lee’s voice much more powerful and captivating.
 
While watching the live performance, I had nothing but goosebumps. Her voice was so graceful and the blending of the different instruments in the background made the performance even more powerful.
 
My favourite part of the show was when she performed one of my favourite songs Lithium. It started with just Amy playing the piano and as​​ she got to the chorus, the rest of the orchestra came in and it was so captivating.
 
I am looking forward to see what else the band creates in the future and cannot wait until the next time they go on tour!
