November 2012

Still spunky, headstrong, and completely in-your-face, Lzzy Hale and Halestorm are back with both guns blazing on their second major-label release “The Strange Case Of…”. The CD blasts off to the mosh-pit stratosphere with “Love Bites (So Do I)” and it’s relentlessly brutal tempo that teeters on the edge of hardcore, but is balanced by it’s catchy chorus and Lzzy’s trademark tough and tantalizing vocal.

I don’t think anyone would confuse Lzzy for being a fragile, sensitive, “pretty girl”, but this disc seems to be on a mission to make sure everyone knows she’s a badass. Not only is the overall sound and attitude of this release as aggressive as anything the mostly-male metal crowd could create, but the lyrics assure there’s no confusion that Lzzy is 100% in control, and this creative endeavor was made solely on her terms. The songs “Freak Like Me” and “You Call Me A Bitch Like It’s A Bad Thing” drive that point home unapologetically.

I’m a little confused why Halestorm is playing such a small venue on their return visit to Madison, but lucky ticket-holders can revel in the glory of the outrageous triple bill of Halestorm, In This Moment, and Eve To Adam at the Majestic Theatre on Wednesday, December 5th. Next time, come back to a bigger room so more fans can get their fix!
