Amy Lee Opens Up About 'Synthesis'
Following the release of Synthesis, vocalist Amy Lee opened up about the album and said that working on it proved that her team is behind her no matter what. She also explained why the band decided to reissue some of their biggest hits.
"[It] wasn't so much a departure as like a roots thing. It's going to part of the root of our music and our core sound in a way that is accentuating a different side of it... It becomes part of the atmosphere, as opposed to being able to take that drama and totally pump it up like we have here," said Lee.
Overall, the songs in Synthesis were meant to be motivational for the vocalist.
