EVANESCENCE/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Drummer Interviewed On 'Rockin' Metal Revival'

EVANESCENCE/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY drummer Will Hunt was interviewed for the latest edition of "Rockin' Metal Revival". You can now stream the entire three-hour program in three parts below.

In a recent interview with Radio Metal, Hunt was asked about the status of the recording sessions for EVANESCENCE's new album. "All I can say is that Amy's [Lee, vocalist/songwriter] a very hard worker. She's very critical of herself," he replied. "It's important to her that the album is up to her expectations first and foremost. She's gonna take as long as she wants to take doing it. As a fan and a bandmember, I wish things were a little quicker, but at the end of the day, I totally respect how she wants to do this. And I understand, because it's a very important and critical album for EVANESCENCE, so it has to be exactly right. I know why she's taking her time on it. It will be ready when it's ready."

When asked about the new EVANESCENCE material, Hunt said, "Honestly, I think it's amazing. I think [Amy's] taken some real big risks. As artists, I think it's important that we challenge ourselves to find new ground. If you look at any band in history who's done really well, they continue to reinvent themselves and be relevant. It's always going to sound like EVANESCENCE, 'cause it's Amy Lee singing, but the vehicle for that voice can be different and still be EVANESCENCE. I think people are gonna be pleasantly surprised, because all the really cool elements, the things people love about the EVANESCENCE of the past are still there. But there are new colors in the pattern. There's a lot of cool new things going on, both electronically and futuristically. I think she's doing something that's very special and hasn't been done before. I'm a supporter, I think it's killer. It's really good."
