fallen era

So it's been 14 years since Fallen was released.

This album changed my life, it changed my world…it changed everything. It helped me discover a part of me that I never thought was there all those years ago. It helped me confront and battle through the toughest years of my life. My biggest thanks is given to Amy Lee, who has been one of my role models for the longest time. Her passion and her raw emotion in the music she so beautifully sang has stuck with me for every one of these 14 years. I’ve never stopped being a fan and will never stop at any time in the future.

“I didn’t want it to sound too fabricated. I love electronics and I love digital manipulation, but I wanted to first establish us as a real rock band. We’re actually playing all of those parts: The strings are real, the choirs are real, the piano is real. […] I think one of the most positive features about [the album] is that it’s like watching a movie from front to back.”
