Fantastic live album...
on 6 December 2010
Halestorm are the perfect example of a hard working rock band. Siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale have been around the so called "rock pit" for years before Atlantic Records finally took a gamble on them in 2006.
Completing their line-up with guitarist Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith on bass, the result was their extremely enjoyable debut CD released in 2009, ahead of their first headlining tour in 2010.
"Halestorm Live in Philly" was recorded during April 2010 at the TFL in Philadelphia and showcases a band on real top form, vocalist Lzzy Hale has an exceptional voice which carries the music through superbly and Arejay is one of the liveliest drummers I've ever seen, each and every song is played out with such musical aplomb.
Halestorm's music can be described as "radio friendly hard rock," no shouting, screaming or swearing but there are quite a few sexual innuendos in the lyrics.
I'm somewhat surprised Halestorm haven't yet generated a larger following both in their native US and worldwide, their debut album was certainly one of the best in 2009 and a second album is currently being written and recorded.
In summary this live CD/DVD is excellent, if you like commercially successful rock music you need to be checking out Halestorm.
