Here’s another song I’ve fallen in love with. Daughters of Darkness by Halestorm is awesome. I was singing it at work a few days ago, and my coworkers were enjoying my (admittedly terrible) rendition. Probably because they were laughing their butts off at me.

One of the things I love about Halestorm is the lead singer, Lizzie Hale, is unlike almost any female singer I’ve heard before. I absolutely hate whiny, sappy, sweet female singers. There are too many of them and most of their music isn’t original. I don’t know of many metal bands fronted by a woman though. Lizzie Hale has an *amazing* vocal range (I’ve heard her compared to Annie Lenox). Not to mention, she also plays guitar (which is pretty awesome; there are bands out there where the front can’t play guitar and sing at the same time *cough*Green Day*cough*) and she’s drop dead gorgeous. Not that that has anything to do with anything, but I just thought it was worth mentioning.

I love music! While I typically stick to whatever’s on the radio, symphonic metal, alternative, or classic rock, I also love music that I can imagine doing a routine to (circus, dance, marching band, color guard, etc.). The one song I’ve become obsessed with is actually a cover of The Resistance by Muse. This version is by 2 Cellos, and the name describes it pretty well. Isn’t it amazing?

By the way, did you know that on youtube videos, you can type repeat into the URL between “youtube” and “.com” ? All it does is take you to a page where the video has been embedded and continously loops. That’s it. I use it all the time!
