Into the Wild Life (Deluxe)
“I Like It Heavy”—a driving, ferocious celebration of all things cranked up—makes a rowdy thesis statement for the southern Pennsylvania band’s third album. “Scream” kicks off things with punches of buzzsaw guitar and insistent drums. “Gonna Get Mine” stomps with classic rock riffage and a riotous, sing-along chorus hook. Demonic frontwoman Lzzy Hale is an F5 tornado throughout, elevating a track like the passionate finale “Unapologetic” from hard rock drive to arena-leveling powerhouse.
