    Evanescence

    Genre: Gothic for some songs, emo for others, and sometimes even hardcore?

    The band's relationship with heavy metal music is not without controversy. Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro of Moonspell contends that Evanescence is not a metal band.[55] In contrast, Aaron Stainthorpe of My Dying Bride feels that Evanescence is doing something similar to his own gothic metal group, only in a more commercial direction.[56] Gregor Mackintosh of Paradise Lost notes a generation gap between his group and Evanescence, suggesting that Paradise Lost has only influenced Evanescence indirectly through other acts like Lacuna Coil.[
    ive been obsessed with this band since the first time i saw a commercial with one of their songs in it. Bring me to life on a ....hellboy? something about a blind superhero and all that...so i guess not hellboy.
