    that sucks trench. ive seen halestorm the last 2 yrs here in fl at earthday birthday a massive local festival put on by the local rock station. they are amazing, and certainly the best us female fronted band out there currently. now as far as overall preferences my fave female fronted groups are within temptation, nightwish, halestorm and epica in that order. all great bands, and if you haven’t i would encourage you to experience their music as well.  well happy ROCKING OUT!!
