Styx is a rock band from the USA founded in late 60s in Chicago under the name The Tradewinds. Since 1975, the year in which the singer Tommy Shaw joined the band, Styx began to have an evolution towards the classic AOR, publishing many successes. They got the top of theiur success in 1980 with Paradise Theatre.

This is what Styx singer, James Young, had to say about Evanescence:

Vin1.jpg Question: I know you tour regularly with REO Speedwagon, but if you could tour with one band who would it be?

Answer: Evanescence is a band that sounds a lot like Styx. They do a lot the things that made us successful — harmony vocals with heavy guitar underpinnings. They sold four million records, but like us, don't get critical praise. When Creed was together, I thought they had a sense of melody, but the power of guitars were still there. There's two for you.[1]
