Today's rock, 'it" band Halestorm, hit a high note in the band's career. The band came home with the gold, in the Feb. 10, Grammy Awards broadcast.
The band won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance. Halestorm faced some pretty stiff competition in the category. The song performance selected as the Grammy winner, "Love Bites (So Do I,)" is from the band's second album, 'The Strange Case Of..." Halestorm released its first album in 2009, and shows promise of being the hottest band on the rock circuit.
Marilyn Manson, Anthrax, Megadeath and Iron Maiden, were all nominated in the category with Halestorm. All of the artists have between 17-35 years of experience in the entertainment industry.
Front woman for Halestorm, Lzzy Hale, was incredibly surprised and thankful for the honor. Hale paid homage to the other groups nominated in the category. Lzzy explained, “It’s an incredible genre to be a part of because rock isn’t always the most popular genre. Sometimes we’re underground, but we all work really hard on the road. We all look out for one another.”
Loudwire reports, "In addition to Halestorm, the category included Anthrax‘s "I’m Alive," Iron Maiden’s "Blood Brothers," Lamb of God’s, "Ghost Walking," Marilyn Manson‘s "No Reflection" and Megadeth‘s "Whose Life (Is It Anyway?)" In the Grammy press room, Lzzy added, “This would not have been possible without these people, specifically, Lamb of God. We were inspired by the guitar part and we would not have gotten into hard rock if it was not for Megadeth and Iron Maiden, so it’s just amazing.”
