Album Review

From the very sound of their name - a name shared by their 2009 debut - Halestorm sounds like a generic active rock band of the 2000s, and to a certain extent that's true: the band does specialize in strident power chord rock not too dissimilar from what their former tourmates Shinedown, Avenged Sevenfold, and Trapt sound like. What sets Halestorm apart from their pack is lead singer Lzzy Hale, the rare female in this testosterone-obsessed sound. Unlike Evanescence's Amy Lee, there isn't a shred of brooding gothic romanticism to Hale: she's a straight-out rock chick, the farthest thing from an angel, a tough girl who gets off on the fact that you're getting off on her. The mere fact that she flips mook-rock on its head is enough to give Halestorm an identity in a genre ruled by anonymity, but they also stand apart from the pack because they've studied not only the scale of classic arena rock but also its hooks, another area that's typically neglected by the male-fronted aggro-rockers. Of course, having Lzzy as their frontwoman does allow Halestorm to sneak in some flair, such as the Queeny pre-chorus of "Love/Hate Heartbreak," and it also allows them to flirt with genuine crossover power ballads like "Bet U Wish U Had Me Back," which sounds a bit like a louder, angry Kelly Clarkson. This gives them more variety than almost every other band of their ilk, but it's the combination of the group's pop skills and Lzzy Hale's charisma that makes Halestorm a bit of a pleasure, albeit somewhat of a guilty persuasion for some.

Customer Reviews

Serious?

This is nothing like Clarkson or Paramore. Are you serious? Modern bands who use beat boxes or artists who spend more time in front of a computer instead using instruments in their hands can just leave it be. Halestorm is nothing less than great and they are more like Heart. Her vocals are incredible and the range seems almost infinite. They have put their time in and seem to reaping the benefits of working hard. Keep it up guys (and lady)!

these guys are good plus the chick singer is hot!!!

These guys are a cross of Kelly Clarkson and Paramore but with more of the metal edge to them. Saw them live in Columbus and was deeply impressed. Good luck to these guys and hope they go far.

Amazing Album

I first heard halestorm live at the mmrbq, they played this album and it rocked, every song on this album just blows me away, though for me "familiar...." and "Bet U....." are the greatest songs on this album and show the bands true potential, i met the band and there very nice and cool and hopefully they will keep bringing out great albums like this
