Album Review: Halestorm – Into The Wild Life- Atlantic Records

Album Review: Halestorm – Into The Wild Life-  Atlantic Records
May 8, 2015 | By | Reply More

I first became aware of the band Halestorm in 2008.  I heard some buzzing of a new band with an amazing front woman named Lzzy Hale.  Once I heard the band, I was instantly a fan.  The lineup for the band includes Lzzy Hale (vocals, guitar), Joe Hottinger (lead guitar), Josh Smith (bass), and Arejay Hale (drums).

The latest album release “INTO THE WILD LIFE” was released April 15th, 2015 via Atlantic Records and is a tasty blend of musical styles. The four come together and create a power house rock band that is undeniably exhilarating.  There are rocking anthems such as; “I Like it Heavy” that mirror Lzzy Hale to the likes of the great of Pat Benatar.  There are obvious influences of Black Sabbath on “Sick Individual”.   Heartfelt ballads like “Dear Daughter” that passes a message of being a strong female through a soft story-like song.

Halestorm – Into The Wild Life- 2015

The fantastic ability of Halestorm to not only say what they want to say, but also to incite emotion each and every song of “INTO THE WILD LIFE” is truly what makes this album one of the best for 2015.  Rock bands are about being loud, rebellious, even scandalous and Halestorm transcends through the genre stereotypes and blew away the lines with hits like “What Sober Couldn’t Say” which is more of a pop-country melody, “The Reckoning” a bluesy afflictions, and “New Modern Love” an impassioned soft rock tune while they tattooed the passage of the right to rock with the controversial lyrics of “Apocalyptic” and “Gonna Get Mine” With each and every new project that the band does, it is evident that not only are they becoming a force to be reckoned with, but they are capturing the hearts and souls of the fans.
