Band of the Week – Halestorm

November 26, 2012

So depending on where you’re from and what kind of music station you listen to, this week’s band may be one you’ve already heard of. They’ve toured with and opened for a number of bigger groups, but haven’t gotten nearly as much radio time as I think they should. Halestorm, a foursome from Pennsylvania, is a hard rock band fronted by lead singer Lzzy (not a typo) Hale. While a first listen a casual listener might compare them to Evanescence, Halestorm’s music is much grittier, and their lead singer much hotter, than Evanescence’s.

I first heard Halestorm at the Carolina Rebellion concert here in Charlotte, and they were pretty far down on the list of acts including groups like Seether, Sevendust, Avenged Sevenfold, and Godsmack. This band, though, was by far my favorite. They maintain a consistent level of rock, with the tempo and range sometimes getting substantially elevated. With lyrics like “I get off on you getting off on me,” Lzzy doesn’t need to remind you that “I’m Not an Angel.”

While the band mainly rides the hard rock train, they’re not afraid to get a little more exposed, like the song “Familiar Taste of Poison.” While I have only heard their first, and self-titled, album, their latest album Strange Case Of… is supposed to carry more emotionally charged songs. I will be checking that out soon.

So, if you want to rock out to a new hard rock band, need something with a fast, strong beat, or just want to check out a group fronted by an awesome rocker chick, add Halestorm to your playlist!
