Last update/review: January 21, 2007


One of the few all-female thrash bands that emerged during the peak of thrash popularity near the end of the eighties, Meanstreak released one competent but not terribly memorable album in 1988, but were unable to follow it up, the band at least partially done in by an indecision of what musical direction to pursue (a heavier sound soon after the debut, but a more rock direction on a 1993 demo). As an interesting trivia note, no less than three of the lineup below later went on to marry members in Dream Theater (Rena to John Petrucci, Marlene to Mike Portnoy, and Lisa to John Myung).
