Cycle Sluts From Hell

This oddity came and went within a blink of an eye, and years later, is still a mystery to many. Though the name implied an all-girl group, in fact the band consisted of four female singers backed by an all-male band (the lineup of which wasn't entirely clear, though some time later names were revealed, including Chris Moffett, later of Warrior Soul, and one-time Overkill guitarist Bobby Gustafson). With member names such as Venus Penis Crusher and She-Fire Of Ice, it's hard to believe that this was ever meant to be a band to be taken seriously. In any event, the one album is anthemic, simplistic metal, bordering on thrash at times (particularly on "I Wish You Were A Beer", which got some decent MTV play at the time). but otherwise not a lot is known about the band. Debuting at a time where grunge was beginning to take hold, the album failed to take hold and the band soon disappeared with nary a trace. Cycle Sluts From Hell (the album) isn't a must-have, but amusing and ok for the time.
