Evanescence, Within Temptations are too gothy for me.

I love them both, but this is in the wrong section. It should go to the Polls.

Within Temptation are plain better.
They have a more interesting sound, it may be considered more "gothic", however that is one of the main strengths of Symphonic Rock and Metal, that it can create tension and emote feelings which aren't present in the other genres surrounding them.

Additionally I feel that the texture of the sound used by Within Temptation is more effective, they have more contrast within their songs accomplished by using a "harsher" selection of timbres, such as distorted guitars. *digs out Evanescence CD to compare*

Evanescence are a more "pop-y" band, their singer isn't as skilled (honestly can't hit the high notes as well) and they use much more predictable (therefore less musical and interesting imo) chord progressions, failing to build as much tension through the music. Finally, they hide their guitar solos among such deep orchestration that the listener can't tell whether the guitarist is any good or not, solo guitar is meant to be just that "solo", not hidden away, either do it properly or leave it out.

edit;
If you are a fan of either of these bands check out Nightwish (though you probably have already) and Epica.
