Editorial Reviews

Blood. Sweat. Tears. Rock-N-Roll.
That's what Halestorm's made of.
The band, guitarist Joe Hottinger, bassist Josh Smith, drummer Arejay Hale and singer/guitarist Lzzy Hale churn out uncompromising rock-n-roll anthems on their self-titled Atlantic debut. Drawing from an arsenal of songs that she's penned since she
was 13, Lzzy examines love and life on the edge while casting a hypnotic spell on listeners. Drawing from influences as diverse as Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, and Metallica, she has a dark sensuality that's undeniable. She exudes that feeling on stage and in the studio, because she's not afraid to be herself. She laughs, 'As a
kid, when a lot of my friends were into Backstreet Boys, I attached
myself to Alice Cooper, Cinderella, and Van Halen. I want to give the audience a ride and connect with them.' In the end, that philosophy will ensure Halestorm's longevity. 'This album has
been a long time coming,' says Lzzy. 'There's been a lot of dirty
work that went into making it. Creatively, we went to rock n roll
college through the experience. It was crazy, raw, down and dirty'.

I almost wrecked my car the first time I heard Halestorm on the radio; not only do they have a powerful female on lead vocals, but the guitar riffs are awesome. I haven't heard anything like this since the early 90s. I listen to a wide variety of music genres, but I didn't stop liking rock just because hip-hop & electronica seemed to take over. I guess rock stations aren't as popular as they once were, and great rock albums are even harder to come by.

THEN THERE WAS HALESTORM! Yaaay! I have always been a huge fan of female rockers like the Wilson sisters in Heart, Lita Ford, and Bonnie Tyler, just to name a few -- I even like the chick's vocals in Evanescence, but it's been a long time since I heard something like Halestorm. My favorite tracks are the first three: It's Not You, I Get Off, and Bet U Wish U Had Me Back. I love the lyrics, love the vocals, and can't get enough of the guitars.

The lyrics are sexual (reminds me of Bret Michael's lyrics a little*edit*<--I take this back, Halestorm's lyrics have some depth to them), which isn't anything new in the world of rock'n'roll, but it's refreshing to hear a chick addressing guys instead of the other way around. Each track has its own unique sound, which is great because I can't stand repetition.

The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was the number of slower songs versus faster songs. I am starved for an album that doesn't rely so heavily on slow tracks, but it seems to happen a lot with female lead vocals.

I saw Halestorm last night in Charleston and did they rock hard. Amazingly talented band, the drum solo they did in the middle was awesome. The live version of Familiar Taste Of Poison was incredible.

I've seen mentions of comparisons to Pat Benatar & Heart but the band / performer that came to my mind most listening to and seeing them is Joan Jett. Lzzy has the growl and attitude, the guitarist was tight, her brother has the drums on lockdown and he and the bassist are in the pocket, holding it all together. The production is a bit slick but they are able to recreate almost all the production live so I won't fault them that.

Buy the album and you will not regret it. As someone else said, next time they come round I do believe they won't be playing a small club but a larger venue.

I saw Halestorm in concert last night here in Charleston. All I can say is that this band is even better live than on CD, and the CD rocks. Fantastic CD filled with some of the catchiest hard rock tunes I've heard in quite a while. They are also an amazing live band, so check them out if they come to your town. I've got a feeling the next time I see them it will be in a much larger venue.

I'm generally not into the mainstream female-led bands. I generally prefer European female-led symphonic metal/rock. But Halestorm has really impressed me very quickly. They are heavier than most of the mainstream female-led stuff that we hear in the US: comparable to bands like Seether, Shinedown, Three Days Grace, and Lostprophets. But they don't try to be any of these bands, they much have their own sound. Lzzy has a great voice and carries the songs well. The guitar parts also sound great.

Nearly all the songs are very catchy. Stand outs include "I Get Off", "Love/Hate Heartbreak", and "Dirty Work." "I Get Off" is probably the song that sold me on this album because Lzzy really rocks out on the chorus. I'd say the only song that I'm not a huge fan of is "Bet U wish U had me back" which is more mellow than many of the other songs.

I wouldn't even bring it up except that I've been seeing people say it everywhere but no, Halestorm is absolutely not the "new Evanescence." Evanescence has more of a gothic sound while Halestorm is less minor (for lack of another word) and closer to the sound of the bands I mentioned above.

Overall, I was very impressed. I would like to see more from this band in the future. I think it's a great pick for fans of alternative mainstream rock or even fans of some of those European female-led bands (Within Temptation, Nightwish, Delain, Xandria).

I was given this CD by Halestorm, to try it out, as I wasn't sure...I almost said no cuz of the mention of many mainstream commercial rock bands listed in the credits whom I don't like...Nickelback, Shinedown, Theory Of A Deadman, etc...I stay away from that stuff. My taste is powerpop, alt-country and many alt/punk/new wave bands, as well as many female rockers and singer/songwriters, plus the Scandinavian, opera-metal bands fronted by women.

Then I read the reviews, comparing Halestorm to Pat Benatar and Heart, so then I listened, as I love Pat Benatar and Heart...and I'll tell ya, the reviews were right on!! I'm not a big fan of huge commercial productions, UNLESS the songs and tunefulness is undeniable, and there is a VOICE...well folks, Halestorm fit those qualifications to a T. Even American Idol judge/songwriter extraordinaire Kara DioGuardi cowrote a song here, "I'm Not An Angel", and it's good.

I not only hear Pat Benatar, 80s Heart (not so much their 70s work), but also even forgotten, former Atlantic 80s female-fronted band Fiona...BUT Halestorm crank up the decibels and dark drama, and sharpen the edges 10-fold, almost in metal territory, yet they keep their tunefulness intact...Lzzy's got a voice that can knock over barriers, no doubt about it.

Yes, they are quite mainstream and commercial, BUT Halestorm have more going for them than just being the next female-fronted radio rock band, the next Evanescence...unfortunately, the production is too slick to endear them to L7 fans or Babes In Toyland fans. I can see through these shortcomings and get passed categorization and radio formats, and just see a band for what they truly are and their potential...
