Amy Lee Releases “Push The Button”
She told MTV earlier this year: “It’s going to surprise my fans – it’s not what you’d expect. The film is very dark, very introspective. There are a lot of moments where Dave and I just build walls of sound out of blaring cellos, trombones, synthesisers and harp. It’s not a soundtrack, it’s an atmosphere.”
Lee recently revealed Evanescence could be over, saying she had no plans to work with the band. She said: “I’ve loved my time with Evanescence, I wouldn’t want to throw it away – but, for the foreseeable future, I don’t have any plans to do anything with the band.”
Cannibal Corpse Say Their New Songs Are Mini Horror Stories
‘Corpsegrinder’ tells Artisan News: “We’re always a little bit annoyed when people think that we’re writing serious songs for people to read and be crazy. They’re just stories. It’s a short story with music, a horror film with a metal soundtrack.” He adds that fans shouldn’t take the lyrics too seriously. “The biggest challenge was that all of us were doing so much different stuff throughout the process that we weren’t really together much recording it, except for the drums.”
All That Remains Done Recording Seventh Album
Philip Labonte states on Facebook:
“Our part of the record is done. Nothing more to track. Tones are all picked out and decided on. Solos, overdubs, leads, backing vocals and vocals all done.
“So, in a weird way, it’s almost as if we’re done being creative for two years. Now it’s all just doing everything we can to get in front of as many people as we can.”
