Editors’ Notes

Ben Moody's re-emergence as the force behind We Are the Fallen shows that he hasn’t lost his gift for orchestrated otherworldly anguish. On the band’s debut album Tear the World Down, Moody is joined by fellow Evanescence alumni John LeCompt (guitar) and Rocky Gray (drums), as well as former American Idol contestant Carly Smithson on vocals. Smithson’s piecing wails and melodramatic sense of dynamics invite comparisons with Moody’s old partner Amy Lee. Tear the World Down’s songs likewise recall Evanescence’s fusion of romantic torment and blood-stained mysticism. If anything, We Are the Fallen takes these elements even further, plunging Smithson into a vortex of bone-crunching guitars, ominous strings and thunderous percussion. “Bury Me Alive,” “Burn,” “St. John” and the title tune reach operatic heights of emotion. “Through Hell” adds a funk undercurrent to the scary sonic landscape. Smithson is allowed a gentler moment on the yearning “Sleep Well, My Angel.”

Customer Reviews

First Review!!

First, I like to say that I am a HUGE Evanescence fan, but unlike a lot of people who are hating on WATF simply because it is a similar sound, I actually highly commend the band for bringing back the old Evanescence feel, where the chords and the beats actually strike on beat and it's simply more comfortable to listen to. Carly H.'s voice is great!

My favs are Don't Leave Me Behind and Bury Me Alive.

Definitely check out this album!

Of course they will be compared to Evanescence...

Ben Moody even said himself that you can't help but hear the similarities since they INVENTED the genre. So put aside your bias and take this album for what it is, an excellent, solid rock CD. Carly Smithson isn't trying to be Amy Lee, she doesn't need to be, she stands on her own even without American Idol. To be honest, I enjoy this bands sound MORE than Evanescence because I felt that "TOD" album lost what made them special and it was that blend of pop/rock. This CD is the perfect addition, not substitute. My other favorite cut is DONT LEAVE ME BEHIND, Carly voice shines here. All in all, a solid debut. I see the Evanescence influence, but its almost like a different variety of the same brand, not a clear cut copycat.

Amy lee Who?????

Amy lee better step up her game. These guys are out for blood!!!!
P.S. The preview clips don't do this album justice, Most songs are great from begining to end.

Formed in 2008 by former members of the popular goth metal/pop outfit Evanescence, We Are the Fallen (a name derived from Evanescence's 2003 album, Fallen) employed their predecessor's penchant for melodrama and brooding theatricality with a newfound emphasis on the band as a whole. Rocky Gray, John LeCompt, and Ben Moody — the latter of whom left Evanescence in 2003 — had experienced significant tensions within their group as it rose to international fame behind talented singer/pianist...
