Did Evanescences's Success Open Doors For Bands Like Lacuna Coil and Nightwish?

Freelance writer Bryan Reesman has submitted the following report to GRAMMY.com:

If the multi-platinum success of EVANESCENCE proved to narrow-minded rock jocks that female-fronted metal bands were viable, a fresh wave of melodic European headbangers should cement that affirmation, with their distinct blend of heavy guitars, symphonic underpinnings and soaring female vocals. Thanks to the breakthrough of "Fallen", like-minded groups that court gothic and classical influences are starting to find success on American shores.

"For quite a number of years we've personally loved that sound and tried to champion it," declares Marco Barbieri, president of the Century Family of labels that includes Century Media and Nuclear Blast. "We initially liked the European, gothic-inspired stuff that came out of some of the doom and death metal bands of the early '90s. When women started joining these bands, they made it that much more exciting and compelling."

Their sounds are quite distinct. NIGHTWISH blends gothic brooding with intense guitars and classical bombast. Their recent album, "Once", features orchestra, choir and a Native American flute player. LACUNA COIL play gothic-tinged heavy rock that invokes a more aggressive Evanescence (and they have been around much longer). LEAVES' EYES, lead by former THEATRE OF TRAGEDY singer Liv Kristine, serve up dreamy, medieval-style metal. All of these bands employ lush keyboards and often contrast their beautiful female singing with harsh male growls normally reserved for death metal. That latter concept may not sound commercial, but EVANESCENCE may have paved the way for its acceptance through the male rap-metal exchanges of "Bring Me To Life".

Odin Thompson, label manager for Napalm Records USA and Moribund Records, sees a basic appeal for these groups — they write great music." These bands bring that heavy edge but inject it with melody and arrangements that have been long lost from rock and roll ," he asserts. "They also offer light to the normally dark world of heavy metal, which makes them special amongst their peers." Thompson believes this subgenre has the potential for tremendous commercial success at a major label level, something Napalm has strongly believed in for years with acts like SINS OF THY BELOVED, TRISTANIA and SIRENIA.

"I'm sure the majors are probably working on their own [groups]," surmises Barbieri. "I feared that a lot of manufactured, female-fronted bands would be coming out after the first EVANESCENCE single. Thankfully we've been spared that from the corporations, and it's being done the right way. Those that have been doing it [awhile] are gaining presence and profile."

The most obvious example of such visibility is Italy's LACUNA COIL, whose two-year-old album "Comalies" scanned more than 200,000 units domestically, cracking the Billboard Top 200 for several weeks last year after extensive grassroots development on radio, video play on Fuse and MTV2, and tours with P.O.D. and Ozzfest.

What the crap? At least he mentioned Tristania, not alot of people mention them.
And at least he mentioned that Lacuna Coil have been around a whole helluva lot longer than Evanescense.

BUT!!! Evanescense and all the other female bands that are around now are not the beginning of the gentler sex in metal. Lita Ford, Stevie Nicks, Vixen, and Heart have been around way longer than these bands, given the most influence, and pretty much broke the barrier, otherwise, you wouldn't have bands like Kittie, Nightwish, and Lacuna Coil.

Oh yeah, he forgot to mention the wonderful Sarah Jezebel Deva. He got Liv Kristine though.

you have to give credit though, it was a well written article detailing something you don't see everyday.

BLACK DOG, see bottom of my rant for answer to your question...

Like all things theres 2 sides to this....yeah Evanescence IS the major success because they did the rap-metal-pop song with THE GUY FROM 12 STONES!!!!.....any male rock singer could have done his little "wake me up, I cant wake up, save me" bit...christ, i cant even repress a giggle 2 years after hearing it....it's still funny.....the guitars are exactly the same a Linkin Parks....same effect peddle....
Evanescence, kinda has potential, much as it pains me to say.....but there already bands who are sooooo much better at this sound already...... LACUNA COIL, TRISTANIA, and DRACONIAN, are easily the best candidates...im not so much a fan of Nightwish and Theatre of Tragedy...they strike me as melodramatic, still talented though...much more so than amy lee and crew....and really, Kittie are some other category all together, their nowhere near great but their improving....What I like about Evanescence getting so much is that bands like Lacuna Coil, on a little label, not a major, will get an impressive amount of press compared to just 3 years ago when they were relatively unknown....

BLACKDOG, i'm going to make a guess that you are regarding to Drain STH, their from Stokholm and the singer is married to noneother than the mighty TONY IOMMI.....they disbanded though...they made 2 great records however, "Horror Wrestling" and the inspired "Freaks Of Nature".....they had a unique kind of Alice In Chains sound to them...I commend your taste though, they were good, better than half of these girl fronted bands.

just because a band is fronted by a girl does not mean it's disposable...just because the singer can and does hit notes does not make them trendy, I think melody will outlast just about any kind of musical genre.

The only band thats been shameless enough to do a pepsi commercial that this site MIGHT cover is that sad failure of a band Papa Roach....

Drain STH is an amazing band.

Being a chick in this genre is hard. Ok, I play keyboard, I'm currently working on some classical metal stuff and arrangements(an accompaniment to "Fade To Black" is my current project.) It's easy to get in a band, and get signed and stuff, but being a woman is way different, you either devote yourself to the road and your music, or go have a family like Raina from Coal Chamber did! It's a hard decision because men can get married and have kids and leave it all to the wife.

Drain STH's second album was a bit nu-metalish as well, but I liked it anyway. Yeah, they were like grunge meets nu-metal.

I think the article has some validity though. You can't go back too many generations when talking about one current band giving another a boost. Sure, there are predecesors to these female and female fronted-bands, but I would have to agree that Evanescence's success has leant a hand to the likes of these other mentioned bands. Sure, Evanescence may not be heavy enough for most people here, but that is why they are a perfect gateway band (think gateway drug analgy). For example, when I got into metal, I didn't just start listening to Deicide and Cannibal Corpse. I started off with 80s glam metal and Metallica. Being introduced to them led me to discover Pantera and Sepultura (both of which took me a little while to warm up to because they were significantly heavier than the bands I listened to. And so the cycle continued to the point that I listen to about any kind of metal, no matter how heavy or extreme.

So someone who happens to hear Evanescence on the radio or the Grammies becomes more likely to hear about the other female rock/metal bands if they pursue that avenue of music further (talking to people about it, reading about it online, etc). They may or may not like the heavier bands, but those bands will be exposed to many more people as a result.

Anywho, Deathbringer's right, it's a gateway, but why them? It could easily be Lacuna Coil if they wanted it to be.

I concur with deathbringer. I got into metal by way of Aerosmith and Van Halen @ 3 years old, later on Metallica and Alice In Chains, 10 years later I found Dillinger Escape Plan, Strapping Young Lad, Opeth Killswitch Engage and ShadowsFall....

Where those 5 bands take me who bloody knows? If nothing else Evanescence have shed light onto a genre (much like Korn did) that goes largely overlooked by the POP-GOBBLING public

To Brokenwings13

As impressive as Century Media is I dont think they qualify as a Major. Granted they are bigger than say Ferrit, Relapse, Ipecac or even the growing TrustKill.....That puts them in the same arena as Roadrunner, and oddly enough Wind-Up...the little engine that could that brought us....creed.....and evanescence and....12 stones.....ik........

I love century media by the way, im not slagging them by not calling them a major........

ANYWAY a true major is Universal, Sony, Epic, Columbia, Virgin and Capitol....THOSE are Major labels......These are multi-conglomerate enterprises that make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$........Theres also the matter of distribution deals but thats not alot of fun to discuss but i can if someone wants the blood and guts on that boring shiit let me know.....

Evanescence opened the doors of commercial success to the aforementioned bands because in recent times, in the populist mind, dark and heavy was a males only domain. Only now have the major label sleaze remembered that metal + tits could mean even more dollars. Yes, I know the use of the term 'metal' is hardly relevant to Evanescence, but that's how the moneymen see it.

Either way, they don't need to manufacture bands when there are already bands in existence who can be exploited then discarded when the trend is dead.

The record label or whatever it is you mentioned would then charge 17.95 for 1 of the 100 disc's made theirfore making a small fortune for every 100 disc's perhap's I was wrong the real money is behind the scenes.I mean let's face it after you get the disc's made they still have to sell . Very few record's sell unless the record label really whores them out to the right radio stations etc.and the label will want't the money they invested back I'm finally understanding how this work's and exactly how and why it's such a cut throat industry.

I personally do not like Evanescence... something about them just irks me, I guess.

I never listen to the radio or watch music channels or read ANY magazines, so I'm pretty lost on mainstream America except for what some of my friends like. I'm not big on labeling music, sometimes bands fall under more than one category and whatnot, but anyway my taste in music spans many genres. Different types of metal, hardcore, punk (older stuff mostly), ska, hard rock, Broadway tunes, classical, DCI, etc. I don't really listen to pop, country, or rap/hip-hop/r&b, but I'm not 100% closeminded to them. Hell, if something is good, why not listen to it? I don't base what I like on popularity, unpopularity, or anything else; it's just based on whether or not their sound appeals to me. It's about the music. If one of my non-famous bands turns mainstream, I won't get mad and stop listening to them--- unless they turn into processed crap where every song sounds the same. I hate that. :P

I know some people who live and breathe by whatever crap MTV feeds them... Evanescence just happens to be one of those bands. I LOVE Nightwish, and so do my dad and my fiance, but I find that many of my Evanescence-loving friends did not. Some people can like both, though. It would be nice for bands that are a hell of a lot more talented to get the recognition they deserve, but at the same time, I hate seeing the bands I like get exploited into a trend or liked for the wrong reasons. You know, the people who "claim" they like a band just because it makes them look cool. The people who "claim" their "MOST FAVORITE BAND IN THE WORLD EVER" is Evanescence, or Bowling For Soup, or Avril Lavine, or whatever other manufactured popular band/singer is big at the moment... but once the trend dies down, they have a *new* "MOST FAVORITE BAND IN THE WORLD EVER" as well as a new wardrobe and new whatever else is popular. The trend cycle always repeats... this will pass, and in like fifteen years, will be revisited in some form. Scary to think about, isn't it. :)

Yeah.... I just wanted to add in my thoughts. Sorry it was such a long post. Anyway, I respect all of your opinions, and hopefully you guys will respect mine as well.

ok relentless austin i'm glad to see you enjoy women i enjoy men but thats not the point here. The point is that women b**** to much and men b**** to much so if we are all b****y, we're great.It is really hard trying to do the music thing with a vagina because it seems to be not as serious but chicks can devote their life to music as much as men and i try to be living proof of that. besides the fact that we all must co-exsist in order to make in this sh**hole called a life i try not to kill more than two people a day so now i will leave you cheesy by saying "Can't we all just get along?" in a high pitched voice and if not then i say f*** YOU ALL!

WOOOHHH GRAFFIC ! Yeah reality TV sucks for the most part and that does include AMERICAN IDOL.Survivor and amazingly enough the Real World and Cheaters are still good.The scary thing about Idol is the fact that the people who watch are f***ing obsessed.When Rubin Studdard won He was getting death threat's from some racist a$$holes.All because title of the show includes the word AMERICAN.

Dirt is right again! It's hard being a chick and devoting everything to music. We can do it but, it's a bit harder when you decide to start a family!!
