Legendary American Rock band, Evanescence, released their highly anticipated album ‘The Bitter Truth’ on 26th March 2021.

‘The Bitter Truth’ is the bands first full-length studio album release since 2017 with ‘Synthesis’ which saw Evanescence rework previous releases into an orchestral arrangement. The album included reworks of tracks ‘My Immortal’ ‘Bring Me To Life’ and ‘Lithium’ which are some of the bands most iconic tracks. The band have now moved forward, bringing back the original Evanescence sound which we have all missed dearly.

When comparing the new album to the bands most iconic albums such as ‘Fallen’ (2003) and their self-titled album (2011), you can tell the band have evolved, they clearly felt it was time to go back to their roots but it was also time for something new. The album itself talks about the struggles in life, diving into Amy Lee’s personal experiences, even touching on the loss of her brother Robbie in 2018 with the track ‘Far From Heaven’. All together the album basically discusses life, there are dark and gloomy times but there are also times of happiness and ‘The Bitter Truth’ truly captures these raw emotions, especially within Amy Lee’s vocals.

Overall, The Bitter Truth is one of the best works that Evanescence has created, it is really up there with the albums we know and still love today. Despite it being somewhat different to what we’re used to hearing from the band, they have truly out done themselves with this one, and in all honesty we didn’t expect Evanescence come back to their roots. When they first dropped the track ‘Use My Voice’ that was the moment we realised they’re back & when ‘Wasted On You’ was released, it really reminded us of Lithium and that is when we all realised this album was gonna be f**ing awesome.
