Biography

Horsens, Denmark (1981 – present)

Pretty Maids is a Danish hard rock/heavy metal band formed in Horsens, Denmark, by Ronnie Atkins and Ken Hammer in 1981.

Over the years Pretty Maids have sold hundreds of thousands of records, but have never broken through in a major way. They have supported such well known acts as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Saxon, Nazareth and were also featured at the 1987 German version of Monsters of Rock where Metallica headlined along with Deep Purple.

The new 2006 album “Wake Up to the Real World” shows the band back in former glory. Great hard rock/melodic rock with a metal touch to it. The album includes a cover of Deep Purple’s classic gem “Perfect Strangers”. Pretty Maids is currently signed to Frontiers Records.

    Одна из самых чертовски недооцененных групп, я считаю.

    Knew of this band for a while, but finally got my first album (Motherland). I really wish I hadn't waited so long.

    Very underrated Danish Hard Rock. "Savage Heart" and "Future World" are melodic hard rock gems.
