EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee has shot down rumors that she will be collaborating with METALLICA on a song for the legendary heavy metal band's forthcoming ninth studio album, tentatively due this fall.

A couple of unsubstantiated reports involving Lee and METALLICA have been making the rounds on the Internet, including that she will appear on a new version of the band's classic track "Fade to Black" and that she will be featured on a brand new METALLICA song called "Last Life". However, according to Amy, neither one of them holds any water.

"I am NOT going to be collaborating with METALICA," Lee wrote in an online posting. "I have absolutely no idea where this rumor came from, but it is not true."

^If this was true than it would be the first time they copied Megadeth, after Mustaine collaberated with Christina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil for that rerecorded version of A Toute le Monde

If they did that I would burn all my Metallica, especially re-making Fade to Black.

Man at this point Frank Sinatra could make them heavier and more metal.

As stated on multiple occasion's.I prefer LACUNA COIL.In any event Mettalica has gone far enough in alienateing thier original fan's.That would probably be the final nail in the coffin.

Her voice is good, she just needs to get into a Nightwish/Leave's Eyes/Echoes of Eternity type deal.

Go ahead, Amy...do it. I gave up on Metallica durring the Saint Anger album anyway. Load was the last FORGIVABLE album Metallica put out. Let's not forget the whining of that documentary "Some kind of Monster". More like some kind of Pansy. Put another bullet in them, Amy. They up and died on their REAL FANS years ago.

I agree with FocusShift. I honestly don't see how Amy Lee isn't in an actual Metal band yet. Evanescence could be so much more if they went a heavier route

Agreed Colony, it would also be great if Amy Lee would growl a little and those two idiots rapping would shut up! Amy could stand to loose a few pounds too.

It seems like no one can think for themselves anymore..a shame isn't it? To have so many people dislike this woman for doing what? Making music? For not doing needless stupidities in public, a la Britney Spears and Paris Hilton?

I guess I don't understand. How sad. Argue about something else...please...

If any of you would actually listen to *any* of their albums from start to finish you would see that the f***ing idiot who makes an appearance on "Bring Me To Life" isn't actually anywhere to be heard. I mean, unless Evanescence has another album I don't know about.

Evanescence blow. I've heard two of their albums a few times, and they've got sh** going for them. Maybe they'd be good if they were trying to be metal, but as it is? Not for me. I mean, I don't even like Nightwish...

On the other hand, Amy Lee does the 'goth/emo' type look the way I like... it's not overdone, it's not completely black ALL the time, it's a little mysterious, a little reclusive, a little disobedient, but not to the point of saying "I'm not worth talking to". Isn't she like, a mad hardcore christian, though? ewww....
