Pretty Maids  


Why would a metal band consisting of men name themselves Pretty Maids? "Because that's what we think about", or words to that effect, was the answer they gave when asked in their early days. Pretty Maids have become one of Denmark's longest-running metal bands, in the business over twenty years now, continuing to play a traditional accessible Euro metal style.
