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'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grateful for some ROCK!! August 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

All in all, if you liked albums like

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, Better Live! June 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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 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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the 80's metal! September 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD! Being a metal lover of 80's music, this was refreshing to hear! Lzzy Hale has an awesome voice! Nice to hear a good female singer in a genre dominated by men! Being a single 40 year old mom, the lyrics are empowering! HA! Would recommend highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Female-Fronted Band September 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As a hardcore rocker and a lover of symphonic metal, I was surprised that I have enjoyed this album as much as I have since it is a very polished first release designed for 'mass popular appeal' (normally a musical death sentence). However, the very powerful, over-the-top, and outstanding female vocal performance by lead singer Lizzy Hale, the catchy tunes and phrasing, and the very good and well-practiced backup band make for a compelling listen. This is not a boring album or a series of plain-jane musical compositions. I found myself playing this album over and over (maybe there is something wrong with me!). This band has been winding up a loooooong time before releasing this album, and the effort is obvious. In any case, I have a weak spot for such powerful female singers - gets me right in the gut (it's a guy thing). My congratulations to this young band on a fine first effort. However, don't expect Bob Dylan lyrics as the message is based on popular music themes (not too much depth). However, give these 'kids' time to grow up a little, and perhaps their lyrics will catch up to the outstanding musical effort shown here. Hey Guys - this gal Lizzy Hale deserves some serious attention and a good listen - she's a very strong and terrific rock singer who can seriously belt it out.

Halestorm rocks, if you like rock, this is a great addition to your collection. They have a similar sound to Evanescence so if you like them you'll probably like Halestorm.
