SEASONS GREETINGS FELLOW BEASTS!  Before the holidays Halestorm was finishing the remaining dates of their Vicious tour which brought them through San Antonio and a sold out show at the Aztec Theatre.  The band was refined had been cut to diamond precision as they took the stage and rocked out the hit single of their latest album, Black Vultures.  From there it was a Rock N Roll spectacle that covered the finest highlights of their career with such fist-pumping, fan favorites such as Love Bites, Mz. Hyde, and Freak Like Me.  Without a doubt though, the tour was a chance to showcase the highlights of Vicious, with the self-titled track ringing with powerful bite from lead singer Lzzy Hale.  You can practically see the venom fly from every word of the chorus.  After a brief break the band came up onstage one last time for an acoustic rendition of The Silence and the encore smashes of I Miss The Misery and Here's To Us.  It is my pleasure to welcome back to the magazine, HALESTORM!
