GIRLSCHOOL are a British rock band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978, frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead. They are the longest-running all-female rock band, still active after almost 40 years. Formed from a school band called Painted LadyGIRLSCHOOL enjoyed strong media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the early 1980s with three albums of ‘punk-tinged metal’ and a few singles, that placed them up there with the legends of NWOBHM.

Formed as Venom in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. And coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, Venom‘s first two albums—Welcome to Hell (1981) and Black Metal(1982)—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general. Venom’s second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of an extreme metal sub-genre: Black Metal.

Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne in North East England back in 1974 (yes – 44 YEARS ago!!!) the brothersGallagher cut their teeth playing the pubs & clubs until solidifying their line up in 1980 with drummer Rob Hunter.  The trio went on to release three of the most influential metal albums of the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) on the Neat records label which in turn inspired every band of that era and beyond. Basically, without RAVEN you just might not have had thrash/speed metal…. after all, the band did giveMetallica & Anthrax their first tours!
