1) To disappear or vanish into a mist.
2) 00's rock band from Little Rock, America. Songs include Bring Me To Life and Everbody's Fool. Sometimes called Christian Rock because they are Christians; only one song on Fallen, Torniquet, mentions God or Christ.
2) Did you hear the new Evanescence song?

An amazing rock band from Arkansas, USA. They released songs such as Bring Me To Life, Going Under, Everybody's Fool and My Immortal, although their older work and demos, in my opinion is better.

They are NOT fake, unlike some other bands ;)

Apart from the proper dictionary definition, Evanescence is a rock band with great lyrics. You don't have to be a depressed or be into rock to appreciate their music. Even if you're a content and happy person, you can to some extent relate to their songs. If they weren't any good, they wouldn't have so much publicity, think about it, how many other bands in the same genre have succeeded like them.
Eg) My Immortal - lost love?
Going Under - finally letting go?
Bring me to Life - self recognition?
Breathe No More -

Self-improvement is for the weak, the strong seek self-destruction.

Evanescence- A wonderful band from Arkansas.That plays the most beautiful music out there. They are the most perfect example of a role model. And none of there songs ever let me down. They all rock. So if you think that they suck, shut up! And go listen to your crappy music! And you an evvy fan out there. You rock! Go Evanescence!
Those who follow the footsteps of evanescence are bound to have a good life in the future.

The best band in the world, started by Amy Lee and Ben Moody as an Alternative Rock band, although some songs are considered goth rock. Originally from Little Rock, AK, U.S.A.. They have a new album set to release in March, 2006. Ben Moody has left the band.
Amy Lee from Evanescence has the best voice.

a band including Amy Lee, an amazing singer with an ethereal voice. Her songs are mostly on the darker side, but 'Good Enough' talks of hope and love. Should be on tour.
