Pennsylvanian rockers Halestorm offer more bark than bite on Vicious. After embracing a slicker sound on 2015’s Into The Wild Life album, Pennsylvania quartet Halestorm reassured fans that they’d decided to steer clear of pop influences for the release of fourth album, Vicious, and double down on rock.
That combination pairs well with Halestorm’s fourth album, Vicious (Atlantic). Producer Nick Raskulinecz (Alice in Chains, Rush, Deftones), who worked with the band on last year’s ReAniMate . : The CoVeRs eP, helped them construct a colossus of al. etal and bellowing hooks, tempered with power ballad-y middle-eights and melody. With Raskulinecz at the helm, Vicious sounds bigger and louder than Halestorm’s previous studio work, yet he also elevates the band’s nuances: Josh Smith’s skulking basslines, Joe Hottinger’s arpeggiated guitar riffs, and Arejay Hale’s scissor-like cymbal play.
The follow-up to 2015's Into the Wild Life, which was the group's highest-charting outing to date, Vicious doesn't deviate too much from the stock hedonism of its predecessor - the holy hard rock trinity of sex, drugs, and rock & roll is alive and well - but it connects on such a visceral and familiar level that.

On Vicious, an album that gets deep into themes of empowerment and personal struggle, the sex songs seem a little out of place. While Halestorm have never been a political band, it would be intriguing to see Lzzy and company take the lyrics a step further and tackle more social issues and other topics on future releases. Despite popular music trends, Halestorm continue to wave the flag for hard rock with pride and power. Essential Tracks: Black Vultures, Uncomfortable, Killing Ourselves To Live, and The Silence.
Produced by Nick Raskulinecz. You make me vicious Watch as I make the pain my mistress You can call me Miss Malicious I'll dress you up in stitches No, I cannot resist this. If it don't hurt I get suspicious I like to take the knife and twist it Yeah, my love is sacrilegious I'm not scared to admit it This violence is delicious. What doesn't kill me makes me vicious I'm not gonna break I can take all that you can give This is survival of the sickest I am not afraid, bring the pain.
