Biography

De Deense rockers van Pretty Maids komen op Graspop Metal Meeting hun jongste studioalbum ‘Motherland’ aan hun fanbase  voorstellen. Het is ondertussen van 2010 en ‘Pandemonium’ geleden dat we nog nieuw werk van de melodieuze heavy metalband te horen kregen. De band, in 1981 opgericht door zanger Ronny Atkins en gitarist Ken Hammer, strijdt al drie decennia lang aan het front van de metal en vierde ondertussen al haar 30ste verjaardag met de release van de live cd/dvd ‘It Comes Alive (Maid in Switzerland)’. Sinds de doorbraak met ‘Red, Hot and Heavy’ (1984) en succesvolle albums zoals ‘Future World’ (1987) en ‘Jump The Gun’ (1990) is Pretty Maids hard aan de weg blijven timmeren. Met steevast puike concerten slagen ze erin om vooral in Europa en Japan hun succes te verzilveren. Anno 2013 snijden ze een nieuw hoofdstuk aan in hun goedgevulde carrière en klinken ze frisser dan ooit. Niet te missen dus, deze legende op GMM 2013!


This summer, Graspop Metal Meeting is one of the stops for Danish rockers Pretty Maids on their tour in support of their latest studio album ‘Motherland’. The follow-up to 2010’s ‘Pandemonium’ is scheduled for a May release. This melodic heavy metal band was founded in 1981 by vocalist Ronny Atkins and guitarist Ken Hammer. They never really made the big time but over the years they have built a solid fan base in traditional metal-loving countries. Last year, the band celebrated its 30th anniversary with the live CD/DVD ‘It Comes Alive (Maid in Switzerland)’. Their full-length debut ‘Red, Hot and Heavy’ (1984) and albums such as ‘Future World’ (1987) and ‘Jump The Gun’ (1990) are just a few of the highlights in their repertoire and in three decades of metal, they have embarked on successful tours mainly in Scandinavia, Germany and Japan. They are still ambitious as hell and more energetic than ever. Don’t pass up this opportunity if you haven’t seen them before!
