I said last week that I’d be returning to normality this week but then I thought “where’s the fun in that?”. So, here’s a bunch of Evanescence videos. If I wasn’t spoiling you a few weeks ago with the Jewel/Warrant double, I am this week – it’s a quadruple bill! In order of release:
Going Under, where for about a third of the song frontwoman Amy Lee is underwater in a white dress.
A whole album (and just under half a line-up) later, we got another video in a similar, underwater-in-a-dress-vein – Lithium. Not to be confused with the Nirvana song of the same name, of course. This one also has Amy “drown” in black liquid at the end.
The Open Door album also gave us Good Enough, in which Amy plays some piano causing everything to catch fire and then get put out by a sudden downpour. I have no idea either, but this is the best one IMO, mostly because a good chunk of the video counts as aftershots.
Finally, the lead single from their recent self-titled album, What You Want. The weakest of the lot in WAM terms, it ends with the whole band walking of into the sunset. Which happens to be out at sea. Amy’s clearly shown her ability to breathe underwater, I worry about the guys though. :c
It’s no coincidence that there’s been a fair amount of gothic music in Music Monday and the video compilation – I plain love the genre. The fact that Epica, Delain, Within Temptation and Evanescence have made use of wetlook kinda helps.
Unless I find another band/artist who’s used a lot of WAM elements in their videos, photoshoots and/or performances (and who isn’t Lady Gaga), we’ll be back to single vids next week.
