There are at least 2 artists with this name: an all-female heavy metal band from Ljubljana, Slovenia and a rock ‘n’ roll two-piece from Johannesburg, South Africa.
1. Hellcats is an old school heavy metal bend from Slovenia and is the first all - female metal band from there. It was formed in Ljubljana in 2003 by sisters Sasha and Sonja Zagorc who have started to perform together in their childhood, when they were still in music school. Sasha was studying classical guitar and Sonja flute. Later on Sonja switched to drums and they formed a girl band. Due to the small size of Slovenian music space it wasn't easy to find many female musicians. Members: Sasha Zagorc, bass, backing vocals Sonja Zagorc, drums, backing vocals Katja Mavec, guitar The quartet loves to perform on big stages and had many gigs in clubs and participated at many festivals as Metalcamp, Viva la Pola… Hellcats recorded their first single “Heavy Metal” in the beginning of 2010. All of their songs are written by sisters Sasha and Sonja.They are working on their debut album and are planning to release it in 2011
2. Hellcats is a two-piece, stripped down, bare knuckle rock ‘n’ roll band from Johannesburg.
Alessandro Benigno (drums and vocals) and Warwick Rautenbach (guitar) started the band in 2014 and played their first gig at the famed Arcade Empire in Pretoria. They only had one song when they were asked to play that gig, so they wrote 8 tracks in two weeks leading up to it and came out the gates swinging. That's kind of how things have rolled ever since. Hard and fast. Their sound is exactly the same, driving riffs and wailing vocals, with a clear ‘70s rock influence. Filthy. Uninhibited.
