  • "The Strange Case Of…" Album Review By 'WHATCULTURE!'

    "While I found their debut album to be nearly perfect, the newest release, The Strange Case Of… blows it out of the water. Halestorm spreads their wings wide with this effort and it’s clear that the label has said, “soar.” This is a far edgier Halestorm than we are used to. In comparison, The Strange Case Of… makes the first album feel “safe.” With the first album, Halestorm sort of defined themselves as a rock band with metal tendencies. Each track, whether they be ballad or harder fare, was distinctly Halestorm. With this new album, Halestorm has essentially broken the mold of the traditional rock/metal genre and created a virtual “hunch punch” hybrid genre that feels as if it takes inspiration from rock, metal, country, pop and blues."
