I'll give it more listens, but this just reminds me of the impactless direction Lacuna Coil took...the atmosphere made songs like Lachrymosa intense. Nothing on here really does that for me, definitely more hard rock/alternative metal than symphonic/Gothic tinged hard rock. Not bad by any stretch though, I'll give it time.
The best album so far... Just listen it through a couple of times and you'll love it!
Musically, way better than TOD or Fallen!
It's just different, heavier and has more harmony and better dynamics.
PERFECT! Evanescence self titled <3
