Biography


Evanescence is a nu-metal band from Little Rock, Arkansas. The band was formed in 1994 by frontman Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody. Ben was later replaced by Terry Balsamo, the guitarist of an alternative metal band, Cold. The rest of the members were bassist William Boyd, drummer Rock Gray, and guitarist John LeCompt.

Evanescence was formerly considered as Christian band. The label was given because they sent Christian message through their lyrics. During 2000s, many people said that Evanescence was goth rock band, but the band itself refused to be categorized in any label. Before choosing Evanescence, the band went by several short-lived names, including "Striken" and "Childish Intentions."
