I wonder what the new album is going to sound like? I can't wait. As for We Are The Fallen! I don't think the guys had fully moved on? I mean come on! I just think it's shady that Carly sounds like Amy, dress like Amy, and their music sounds like Evanescence. Or maybe they think that's the only they could get back at Amy?

I think the style of music was more Ben's style than Amy's I bet her album she puts out as Evanescence sounds less like the old group than we are the fallen. I think we are looking at it wrong, its more like Amy left and just got to keep the name for some reason.

Just look at the name "Evanescence" we cant expect an exact thing about their music. Their music is really good and expressive, i think if it is really different then all albums it still will be the same expressively,and all will like. and for We are the fallen, ha ha i think they have no idea what they are doing. They have no music so they just sing Fallen songs. And obviously a band w/o Amy's voice is not good, she is the only female vocalist that can sing rock really well.

Okay, so what does everyone think the approximate date will be for the release of the new album? I heard it was supposed to be out late fall...whoops. Anyway, it's supposed to come out soon, correct?
As for "We Are The Fallen", they're a different band which just happens to have the old Evanescence guys. Honestly, I don't think Carly sounds like Amy and Ben Moody writes a good amount of their music! They are similar, but not the same. If I had to use examples of other bands to compare We Are The Fallen to, I'd say that they're right between Evanescence and Within Temptation: Ben Moody + old Ev guys + Dutch-sounding vocals = We Are The Fallen. Simple as that.

the album was supposed to come out beginning of October. but in July they announced that they needed more time to fresh up their minds in the direction the music is going to head through. but there hasn't been any other info :P

i think we are the fallen are just trying to get on with there lives now, its not like they intend to sound like evanescence i think it is just the style of music they like most of all, although they are a very talented band i am still happier with evanescence as my favourite band

the only bad thing We Are The Fallen are going to hold against Evanescence is Ben's grudge against Amy and they are probably going to release more albums compared to Evanescence... Sadly this is going to probably lose some fans for Evanescence... all the impatient ones that is... but i cant really see We Are The Fallen putting the 300% into their music like Amy does... I remember reading a quote from Amy somewhere that she sometimes didnt like singing the same songs over again cuz they lost their meaning to her... and you can even tell just by listening to Amy's music... no matter what it is... you can feel every emotion that she has used to to bring it to the surface... and for people who dont believe me, listen to her music, do nothing but listen and let your mind wanter...

They are acting like her last 2 albums had ben moody and the old members in them. THEY LEFT IN 2003 RIGHT AFTER THEY COMPLETED FALLEN! She then has new members for 2006 album "The Open Door" which 2 songs got on the radio. We are the fallen has NONE on the radio, and there fan base is very VERY small compared to evanescence. "the open door" was a great album with great songs and it was made without the origional band members.
