Evanescence has released their new song, The Game Is Over, and fans are losing their minds. We begin with a close up on Amy Lee’s face sans makeup and looking natural. We can see that the message for this video will be different from others before it. That is proven when her voice goes from calm to desperate as the video continues. You immediately feel the raw power her voice inspires. Fans loved the natural look as it went perfectly with the message the video was trying to portray.
The video portrays feeling lost, alone, and pleading for something to bring them back. The members want someone to help them escape what they feel. This video walks us through the stages of feeling trapped and desperately trying to claw and fight your way out. The video perfectly captures the pain of feeling too much.
Go Deeper And Peel The Layers Back
As The Game Is Over continues, the music gains intensity. It looks for a moment as if the members in the song have given up. You even think they’ve accepted their fate until you see a smirk grace Amy’s face. The smile signals another change in the video as the fighting and screaming begin to occur once more. Letting us know they haven’t given up, we are lead through the pain the members feel while showing each journey.
She pleads through her song that she change into something that she believes in. After her pleas and that she feels left with nothing but pain as hate wears off, she sings once more. The world is too much, and she feels as if a brick is on her chest. While you feel her pain, you see more closeups to capture the rawness in her eyes. You can see the power in her voice at Evanescence .
See The Soul
The Game Is Over is real, sincere, and has a message that you can feel. You experience the pain and terror of feeling trapped within your soul and not being able to escape it. While watching, you, too, wish that you could claw your way out. As the video begins to descend into the fight, you find yourself hoping that it shows triumph. Not happening the way you think, it shows each member getting a transformation and an ending befitting how they feel.
We all have demons, and when times are hard, they can be more present, intense, and frustrating than ever before. Everyone has moments where we have too much to deal with and have moments where we can’t do it. This video accurately portrays how it feels to have your demons come out. It also shows the frustration of being pushed to the limit of your mind. The Game Is Over is meant to push you to the brink while putting yourself in their shoes; you will be feeling the anxiety tearing at the edges of their soul and consciousness.

What makes this video so unique and will resonate with audiences is that it’s real. Instead of being inaccurate or overly flashy, Evanescence has given us a video that more than just words. The heart is letting us see the message within. We understand that they transform like the mythical phoenix to get a new beginning and head into the next day. They know that while the demons may not have left, they have been conquered for the moment.
