I admit it, I’m rather bias against all-girl metal bands. Or women in metal bands at all. Or men for that matter. Ok, the very concept of most metal is repulsive, or at least I find it cheesy in the extreme.

There are a surprising number of all-girl metal bands. The only one I could probably name off the top of my head is ‘Vixen’:

Metal Ladies

…and, of course, Precious Metal. I first discovered the band back in the late 80s, when I picked up their first LP in the super-bargain bin. I was amused by the campy art. It’s actually somewhat listenable, as far as pop metal goes. Thought their album was a one-off… and promptly forgot about them for the next 25 years.

Until a few Sundays ago when I came across this, their THIRD album. Turns out they stumbled through the first half of the 90s intact, released a total of four albums, and a posthumous ‘best of’ CD. The album’s still sealed and will probably remain so for the immediate future.
