Ok, it's been a week or so and I am totally in love with Halestorm.
I went and bought all their stuff on iTunes but had to order the DVD from CD Universe.
They write some damn catchy hooks and melodies, exactly what's perfect for a rock show. Singalongs, waving arms, it's all there but it's Lzzy that drives this bus and what a driver she is. Her stage presence and command of the crowd is something I haven't really seen since a Jon Bon Jovi or a Bono. Sure, you get a moron like the lead singer for Hedley who thinks he's Mick Jagger/David Lee Roth and does jumping jacks all day but nobody cares. Lzzy 100% owns the audience with her eyes and actions.
Lzzy's voice is... supercalifragifuckitifiknowhowtospelldocious. I can't see any weak points no matter if she's singing soft, aggressive, false, or blowing it out with the soaring highs.
If I REALLY try and HAD to complain about my diamond shoes being too tight I'd say that I just wish the songs were longer. There's some great music in there under Lzzy's voice and it would have been great to let the songs breathe a little more but essentially that's me just wanting more!
I also respect them cuz they did it the old-fashioned way. They played acoustic sets at actual radio stations, put out EP's, wrote 50+ songs for their latest album, and generally worked hard and cuz of that hard work they have the respect they need to really make amazing music.
Sorry for babbling on but I am just in shock about Halestorm.
PS - The sad thing is, as much as I hate the whole MP situation, I do have to thank him and Adrenaline Mob cuz if I didn't hear Come Undone and wonder who the chick was I never would have found out about Halestorm, so I do have to thank MP for that.
