The explosion of May 2003 was so loud that it was heard all around the planet.

According to Amy Lee's publicists at Mercenary Publicity, the EVANESCENCE singer and her bandmates are currently in the studio working on new music, expected later this year.
Lee hinted in an interview with AOL last fall that the band was gearing up to make new music, but that it might not take the form of a traditional album release. Lee explained: "We have some new little plan in store, but I don't wanna give it away yet. But there is some new EVANESCENCE stuff that we're starting at, but it's not exactly the most traditional thing. It's not just, 'Okay, we're gonna make a new album right now.' Not that that's not coming, but first there's something else that's a little bit special and different and [that is] gonna take you down a different path that we wanna try."

EVANESCENCE frontwoman Amy Lee has finally revealed the details of the unique project which the band has been working on for the past few months. Due this fall, the album, titled "Synthesis", will be called that "because it is a synthesis — the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, and also the past and the present," the singer said in a video message announcing the record.
According to Amy, "Synthesis" will be different from all previous EVANESCENCE albums in that it will be "about orchestra and electronica. We're taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds. We've gone through our entire catalog of music and picked out the songs that are made to be heard in this way, and we're sewing them together from the ground up," she explained.
Clarifying that "Synthesis" is not a collection of remixed versions of existing EVANESCENCE songs, Amy said that the album's creation involved rebuilding the material "from the ground up, with different tempos, with different parts, with intros and outros and segues and new pieces, and putting this all together like one big piece of music, like one big classical piece, or sort of like a soundtrack. Actually, in a lot of ways, it sounds a lot like the soundtrack of my life. [Laughs]"
In addition to reworked versions of EVANESCENCE songs that fans will already be familiar with, "Synthesis" will contain "two completely new and original compositions as well." Amy added: "We're collaborating on this with the legendary David Campbell, who arranged the strings for all three of our albums. This time he's come to the table with way more — full orchestra, meaning wood winds and brass and strings and harp and just the whole thing. It's really awesome."

Sunday’s extreme heat probably was a factor that might discouraged some people to go to Terra Vibe in Malakasa. Except from the people who was trying to find a place in the shade the band had to overcome the heat and be what they were supposed to be on stage.

Amy Lee says that EVANESCENCE is working on a "unique" new project that breaks "new territory" for the band. She tells TeamRock: "We're working on something new — and the info about it is on lockdown just for a little bit longer. In a short amount of time' I'll explain exactly what it is. But we are in the studio, we are working on a new project, and it's something different — it's not just a straightforward next EVANESCENCE album. It's something unique, something complex, something a little bit beyond that — and it's definitely new territory for all of us."
