When did you first hear Amanda Empty
PostSubject: When did you first hear Amanda   When did you first hear Amanda EmptyWed Oct 21, 2009 3:20 am

And don't leave out the details Razz

I first heard saw her in a youtube vid of epica's Cry For The Moon (We Will Tak You With Us footage) where she was doing the backing vocals. At the time I just wondered who the gorgeous blonde lady was but then lost interest for a while. A fair bit later Emily (WTI) told me about this band/project called Aina which I looked up and fell in love with. When we realised Amanda was behind it we did some more research and totally fell in love with her music. Not too much after that we started joking around about creating a fanclub but when we realised Amanda didn't have one we created one and voila. My story (and a part of Emily's).

I saw her in a We Will Take You With Us video as well. I remembered reading her name in Epica's Divine Conspiracy booklet but put the face to the name after the video. Then I looked at Epica's MySpace and saw Amanda was in their top friends, I checked out her music and even though I was mainly into metal I thought it was pretty damn awesome! Looking in the associated projects part I saw Aina and as it was a metal opera I figured it was a bit more of my thing and instantly fell in love with it. I then told Tessa about it and the rest is history Very Happy

Also in that same WWTYWU footage... but then as I started researching I realized just how many bands Amanda had worked with, especially After Forever I love you

Then I heard Windows.
And Moth. I like Moth.

Youtube arguement. Someone claimed Amanda's song was actually Amy Lee and from there I listened to every Amanda song I could find and then proved the idiot wrong with alot of disappointed Ev fans wanting to "cut off my head". Great fun!

Well I first heard of her it was not long ago... When Tobias Sammit was announcing the singers for Avantasia Lost in Space 1 & 2 and The Scarecrow and I saw her name on the guest list! And I googled her name and at the time Aina was one of the first things to come up... So I wet after this record! And wow it was "love at first sound" hehehehe The best! I guess it was Aina that I first heard her singing!

I most probably heard her forst with Kamelot, but I didnt know than that I hear her. Than I searched for Epica and my first experience with Epica was my first experience with Amanda cause I saw Cry for the moon on youtube Rolling Eyes Than I quickly realised how talented she is and on how many CDs she is on that I like... and what comes after is history Very Happy

In keeping with a developing theme here I picked up Epica's "We Will Take You With Us" DVD and wondered who the gorgeous blonde with the great voice was, did some research and well here I am! Love my metal but love "Windows" too. Variety is the spice of life and Amanda is spicy...... Smile

I first heard Amanda in What Kind Of Love by Avantasia. I´ve never been a fan of female vocalists in any style of music (with one or two exceptions), but her voice caught my ear- so full, delicate but powerful, unique and amazing. I bought Windows immediately after it had been released... an voila, now I´m here Smile

WWTYWU, Epica.

Then I began to follow her on MySpace, so I began to follow her "steps". I almost died when I knew she was working with Kamelot in The Black Halo and of course, Ghost Opera (the sweetest voice of one very sad song).
