The Iron Maidens save the day

The Iron Maidens (the World’s only all female Iron Maiden tribute band apparently) recently “saved the day” at a Paul Di’Anno (original Maiden vocalist) gig. Paul was unfortunately unable to make it to the venue due to being snowed in, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), The Iron Maidens just happened to be in the crowd. The girls stepped up to perform an hour and a half set along with an ex Anthrax singer. Not sure which one though, Anthrax have had about a hundred vocalists. Nah, I’m kidding, it was Neil Turbin. As in the original singer that isn’t Joey.

Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell also helped out The Maidens. It is the reported that the crowd were happy with the alterations, as this was the first time they had seen women this close up.

Girls will be girls

All-girl tribute bands. We all love them, don’t we? AC/DShe, Judas Priestess, The Iron Maidens etc. Why do we love them though? Because it’s chicks playing metal. That’s the very definition of hot.

It got me thinking though. All these all-girl tribute bands are playing Heavy Metal or Hard Rock. That’s pretty sweet already but wouldn’t it be awesome if there was an all-girl Death Metal tribute band? The girls already have all the advantages on their side to make it in Death Metal. They bleed. So once a month, they’d have the goriest performance you’ve ever seen.

Or what about an all-girl Bloodbath tribute band? Or covering Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Roots Bloody Roots or Blood for the Bloodgod?

See? This already looks like a career and that’s more than half of the bands, that are already being covered, could claim nowadays. So girls, if you’re reading this site (and I highly doubt that), start an all-girl Death Metal tribute band. We’ll be the first one to interview you.


Girls can rock too

Call me a sexist pig, but I don’t take the WNBA seriously. There’s something about women trying to do what men do that doesn’t sit well with me. We don’t really have the MNDWA, do we? (Men’s National Dish Washing Association) — So why do they have to try and take what’s ours? Unfair.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s got nothing to do with ability, I know for a fact that women are good with balls, it’s just that we play sports and bring in the money, they feed us and clean after us. It’s a well oiled machine that needn’t be fucked with.

What does this have to do with metal? Well, not that much, it’s more of a rant I just thought I’d write, but check out these delusional young women trying to cover two of metal’s biggest legends.

AC/DSHE is the original all-girl AC/DC tribute band doing Bon Scott-era songs. These gals are committed to staying true to the heart pounding rhythms and high-energy presentation of early AC/DC.

Judas Priestess is band of hard-rocking chicks hell-bent on hitting stages across the USA and tearing up the classic headbangers of the undisputed masters of metal, Judas Priest.

Aww, isn’t that cute?? Videos of them performing live, after the jump. You just want to eat them up… And then vomit them right out.
