Halestorm powers up more classic tracks on “ReAniMate 2.0” – Lzzy Hale’s voice conquers all

My favorite album of the week is the new covers EP from Halestorm called “ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP.” I have been a longtime fan of this band’s re-creations since hearing their rendition of Skid Row’s “Slave to the Grind,” which might be the best cover of all time. On the band’s second covers EP, Lzzy Hale and company offer punishing renditions of Marilyn Manson’s “1996” and Judas Priest’s “Dissident Aggressor.” The best track on the record is the cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman,” as that tune carries such a spectacular melody on its own and the band’s performance is great. You can call Halestorm a sissy candy rock band all you want, but Lzzy Hale is the most powerful female vocalist in all of music today – possibly the greatest overall young vocalist. The band also gets bonus points for streaming the album on their official YouTube page @halestormrocks.
