This quintet unites Evanescence’s Ben Moody with brassy American Idol finalist Carly Smithson for Tear The World Down, and the results are heavy. Smithson’s voice shines over Moody’s familiar stew of metal riffs and gothy strings. Too bad the subject matter seems cribbed from a teen’s Tumblr. But as a church choir(!) swells on the title track, it’s awfully hard not to headbang along.

Rock & roll breakups are rarely as acrimonious as that between Ben Moody and Amy Lee of Evanescence. Just as their 2003 debut, Fallen, was turning into an international sensation, the guitarist left the band, the bad blood between the two spilling into the press, Lee’s post-Moody album The Open Door, and even Moody’s long-delayed post-Evanescence project We Are the Fallen, whose very name defiantly claims Evanescence’s hit album as the property of Moody and his two fellow refugees from the band, guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray. Based on their 2010 debut, Tear the World Down, it's not wrong to say We Are the Fallen were responsible for the sound of that 2003 hit: with former American Idol contestant Carly Smithson as their frontwoman (and metal veteran Marty O’Brien on bass), they sound exactly like Evanescence, lacking only the sour charisma of Lee.
