EDITORS’ NOTES

“I Like It Heavy”—a driving, ferocious celebration of all things cranked up—makes a rowdy thesis statement for the southern Pennsylvania band’s third album. “Scream” kicks off things with punches of buzzsaw guitar and insistent drums. “Gonna Get Mine” stomps with classic rock riffage and a riotous, sing-along chorus hook. Demonic frontwoman Lzzy Hale is an F5 tornado throughout, elevating a track like the passionate finale “Unapologetic” from hard rock drive to arena-leveling powerhouse.

Can't wait for the rest

Water4323,

Apocalyptic is killer. Halestorm is one of only 3 bands that I will order an entire album without hearing it. Haven't been let down.

Where is the power??

CaseyG142,

I've loved Halestorm since the start but i'm really let down by this album. It's not bad by any means, it just lacks power. I know Lzzy has so much more to offer. I've seen them live three times. I just feel like the lyrics come off more generic. Even in the album opener "Scream", she says the word scream. It doesn't get me pumped for the rest of the album. The power that is put on "I Like it Heavy" is what i expect from Halestorm. I appreciate them trying new things, the band brings it on the album. Lzzy's vocals are just not as intense as they could have or have been. Good album, but doesn't give me what I was expecting from Halestorm.

About Halestorm

Siblings Elizabeth and Arejay Hale, the core members of the hard rock band Halestorm, formed the group in late 1997 near York, Pennsylvania, with Arejay on drums and Elizabeth on vocals and keyboard. Wanting to expand their sound, the duo invited their father, Roger, to play bass for Halestorm. Soon after their first professional gig in 1998 at the Blue Mountain Coffee House in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the band added various guitar players and released an EP, 1999's (Don't Mess with The) Time Man. More lineup changes occurred, but Halestorm finally solidified with Elizabeth (who was by then going by Lzzy) on vocals and guitar, Josh Smith on bass, Arejay on drums, and Joe Hottinger on guitar. The band caught the attention of producer David Ivory as well as Atlantic Records -- both were involved in the band's major-label debut, 2006's One and Done, a five-song EP recorded live at a show in Philadelphia. They would finally make their full-length studio debut in 2009 with the eponymous Halestorm, all the while maintaining a rigorous touring schedule that would see them playing upwards of 250 shows a year. The following year, Halestorm released the concert recording Live in Philly 2010, and Reanimate: The Covers EP appeared in 2011, featuring the band's takes on songs by Heart, Guns N' Roses, and Lady Gaga. Their sophomore album, The Strange Case Of..., followed in 2012, and the single "Love Bites (So Do I)" earned the group a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance. Reanimate 2.0 was released in 2013, this time finding the band tackling Fleetwood Mac, Daft Punk, and Marilyn Manson. The band's eclectic third studio long-player, the Jay Joyce-produced Into the Wild Life, was released in April 2015, and was preceded by the single "Apocalyptic." The live EP Into the Wild Live: Chicago arrived in 2016, followed in early 2017 by Reanimate 3.0, which featured covers of songs by Whitesnake, Metallica, and Soundgarden. ~ Marisa Brown
