Lzzy Hale responds to Arch Enemy‘s vocalist Alissa White-Gluz about her talent. She talked about her and explained her reactions to the Alissa White-Gluz and said the Halestorm frontwoman is among the top female vocalists in metal music.
In a recent interview with Chaoszine, Lzzy Hale talked about Alissa White-Gluz and responds to her remarks were part of a Cameo video that she created to promote her channel Sobre La Dosis YouTube channel where she was tagged to discuss her top female singers of all time in the metal music history. Hale also talked about Arch Enemy’s latest “Deceivers” album. A music video that is official for the album’s most recent single “Handshake With Hell” directed by Patric Ullaeus, became available earlier in the month.
“Deceivers” will be the band’s third Arch Enemy album since the departure of longtime vocalist Angela Gossow and the addition of White-Gluz (formerly of The Agonist). It’s also The second Arch Enemy disc to feature the former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis, who joined the group in late 2014.
Lzzy Hale said this in the interview(transcripted by Metalshout) :
“It blows my mind, honestly, because I love her voice so much. In fact, I’ll tell you a small story. She and I were backstage in Japan. We were playing at a festival in Japan. She was trying to teach me how to scream, and I was trying to teach her how to do the high notes. It was the funniest thing because neither one of us was matching up. She’s so talented and doing something that I can’t do, and I respect her for that. And, obviously, we both have things that we can bring to the table. But I just admire her voice so much. I got to see firsthand how incredible that growl is, that she has. It very much inspired a lot of my screams on this album, because I’ve been trying to develop that in my own way. It’s a beautiful thing, and what an honor. Honestly, I think that it’s so wonderful to see so many women that are supporting each other. The fact that I can be on somebody’s list, anybody’s list, something like that is just beautiful, it’s very humbling. Thank you, Alissa. I miss her. I haven’t seen her in a long time, that blue-haired wench.”
Also, Alisa White-Gluz responded to her:
“That is such a tough question. Even more broadly, if I had to choose one vocalist of all time as my favorite, I really don’t know who I would say. I could probably choose, like, a top-five or even, like, a top-three, potentially. But there are so many different vocalists that I love for different reasons. So my answer might change depending on the day. I would say right now, in this exact moment in time, I’m gonna say that my favorite female vocals are Brody Dalle from The Distillers because she’s just got so much attitude and it’s so raw and that’s, like, her true voice, which I love. But, of course, I also love Lzzy Hale because she’s just technically amazing and she’s got a beautiful tone. I love Noora from Battle Beast because she’s just absolutely incredible. Janis Joplin…
There are so many amazing, amazing female vocalists that totally inspire me every time I see them or hear them and really push me to keep on trying to improve and just get better at my own singing.”
