Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Praises Ozzy Osbourne’s Unpopular Album

After so many years in the industry, one would think that most artists have nailed down their sound. However, Halestorm has experienced many evolutions over the years, and frontwoman Lzzy Hale revealed during an interview with Sweden’s RockSverige that some albums have influenced her taste in music and have undoubtedly crept up in the band’s music.

I love the ‘Ozzmosis’ record,” she said while talking about the albums that have influenced her the most. “Many people don’t, but I love it, and I’ve also listened to a lot of that. For some new old school; Disturbed’s ‘The Sickness’ and Sevendust’s ‘Home’ — which I don’t know would be considered metal, but they definitely dabbled in it.”

She continued, “I remember that jolting me forward out of my ’70s and ’80s hard rock and metal. Those two albums were crazy modern, but that was a long time ago. All these albums have anniversaries now, and I’m like, ‘Oh no! I remember when that one was new.’”

Although ‘Ozzmosis’ was not a popular release or a fan-favorite Ozzy album, Hale really enjoyed the album and its contribution to the genre. The metal albums by Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, and Sevendust were what she gathered most of her inspiration from to create the ideal Halestorm sound.

Although the frontwoman has yet to release a solo project for her fans, Halestorm has gone dropped several studio albums, including their most recent album ‘Back From the Dead.’ The band is currently on tour in Europe with Alter Bridge, and there as still dates available before the tour wraps up.
