Product Description

The band unleash a turbulent torrent of infectious hard rock on their self-titled debut, delivering uncompromising rock n' roll anthems. Singer/ guitarist Lzzy describes the band's sound best--"It’s powerful rock’n’roll. We have a lot of classic rock influences, but the music never feels dated. It’s got an old school feeling with a modern edge."

Lzzy Hale and her brother Arejay formed Halestorm while in middle school, "My brother and I were very fortunate to know what we wanted to do at an early age. When I was 13 and he was 10, we got together and wrote five songs. We wanted to be in a band together, we wanted to make music, and that was it. Everything came second to that." They immediately began playing local shows and garnered a following across Pennsylvania. The band line-up was solidified with the addition of Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith.

Lzzy's dynamic voice cuts across genre boundaries. "I approach my timing and singing like a blues singer," she says. "I’m very influenced by blues and soul. For me, it's always about making sure I have feeling in my voice." She also casts a hypnotic spell on stage, drawing from influences as diverse as Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, and Metallica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed 3 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
I actually only caught Halestorm very recently on Kerrang tv, something I stopped watching a while ago but a pre-work-easy-to-watch chance meant I saw the "I Get Off" video.

I've always liked female rock vocalist in all of their guises, from the 70's prog of Sonja and Curved Air, the 80's brought us Lee Aaron, Wendy O, Doro Pesch, Saraya, Robin beck (the list goes on for that decade) the 90's Christina Steele, Skin from Skunk Anansie and the onslaught of "symphonic" bands like After Forever and the early screaming of the wonderful Maria Brink. Female vocals throughout the decades of rock music have a lot to give a listener. The short explanation I can give is that the dark and light in rock music, to have a female voice over seering guitars and pounding drums. It's a sound to behold.

This dark and light has evolved though and at the moment, the symphonic angle is over-done, there are some diamonds in the rough but the record companies have gone over the top. Female fronted prog is barely getting a look in within the mainstream, a shame considering the talents of Mostly Autumn, Karnataka, The Reasoning and Touchstone.

Halestorm are a breath of fresh air. It would be wrong to say that this harks back to the 80's, for me it does but I know there is negativity about the decade and don't want to tag it in this way, my reasoning is that the Lizzy has the air and most probably takes inspiration from Beck, Ford, Aaron et al. What's important is Lizzy's voice is powerful, has range and is a joy to listen to. Ok, this is not just about Lizzy. The guitar grabbed me when I heard "I Get Off", clean and razor sharp. The rhythmn section are no slouches either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halestorm 29 Oct 2010
By Michael
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
3 - 4 minute long rock songs that go verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, chorus, end?
But wait... these songs are dangerously catchy. All of them. The vocals are very strong, providing a wide range of pitch.
The lyrics are pretty dirty - you wouldn't let your kids listen to this. This is party music for the rock fans.
It seems James Hetfield adopted a daughter with Nikki Sixx.
And she hung out with Hinder all day, every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four star album, five star songs 8 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
I can well understand the two star review for this album; on first hearing it sounds like the soundtrack to the latest fratboy comedy that Hollywood loves to churn out these days. And the cover is just awful. Why they couldn't have put Lzzy in one of her classic rocker poses I do not know.

I got this album on the strength of the video for `It's not you' on Kerrang and haven't stopped playing it since. `Halestorm' completely rewards repeated listening, to the point where what you assumed was a three star album rapidly blooms into a five star one.

Halestorm have toured with Shinedown, and I would say they are very closely linked: both have a mixed bag of songs on their albums, but when they do hit the mark the best songs really make your jaw drop with the sheer brilliance, quality, power, emotion and richness. I'd say at least five of these fall into this category: "It's not you", "Dirty work", "Love/Hate Heartbreak", "What were you expecting?" and "Nothing to do with love".

I have noticed Halestorm the band being compared to Heart and I don't think that's unfair (especially in the area of exceptional vocals), just that they're harder rocking. If you really want to get the picture, imagine Heart fused with Stone Sour and that's probably about right.

In a market packed with boy bands posing as rockers, Halestorm the band and Halestorm the album are a breath of fresh air. Old school powerful rock `n' roll? Yes it is.

There are undeniably weak songs on this album but the strong ones are so exceptional and the overall experience so enjoyable that it would be unfair to give `Halestorm' anything other than five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halestorming debut album 13 July 2010
By BigT
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent first album from Halestorm. New nothing about them untili read a review in kerrang and bought it on a whim and its ace. If you like Kelly Clarkson this is more of the same but with a much more powerfulrock feel to it. Blinding vocals, awesome guitars and a babe for a singer . . . sold!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alternative rock... 13 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
Halestorm's self titled debut album, produced by Howard Benson springs immediately into rock life with bouncy opener "Its Not You," which showcases a catchy riff with lyrics about confessing your love for someone who you're not with.
It's just about as heavy and hard as Halestorm get; singer Lzzy Hale has a powerful vocal range (think of a heavier version of Kelly Clarkson) which suits the music here just perfectly.
To be honest it took me a few spins to fully appreciate this record. It all sounded a bit thin and incomplete at first, but it now regularly does the rounds on my iPod, especially power ballads "Bet U Wish U Had Me Back" and the best track on here "Better Sorry Than Safe."
Elsewhere Halestorm flirt with a gothic rock sound on "Familiar Taste of Poison" before probably the best rocker shows up at track four with "Innocence."
In truth its all music that's been done a thousand times before, Halestorm do it well enough though which makes this record one of the best debut CD's of 2009 - shame many people won't even hear it.
