Slovenian All-Female Heavy Metal Band HELLCATS Releases 'Now Is My Time' VideoSeptember 19, 2014
Slovenian all-female heavy metal band HELLCATS has released a new video for the song "Now Is My Time" from its "Warrior Princess" album. The clip was filmed at various locations in the band's hometown of Ljubljana. The track was written by sisters Sasha and Sonja Zagorc and recorded with producer Davor Kontić at Conti Studio. MTV Slovenia recently premiered and added the video to rotation.
HELLCATS is reportedly the first all-female heavy metal band Slovenia. The band was formed in 2006 in Ljubljana by sisters Sasha Zagorc (bass) and Sonja Zagorc (drums),who started to perform together in their childhood while they were still at music school. Sasha was studying classical guitar and Sonja flute. Later on, Sonja switched to drums and they formed a band. Due to the small size of the Slovenian music scene, it was not easy to find female musicians. After a few band member changes, the HELLCATS lineup was completed by Katja Mavec (guitar) and Ajda Kovačič (vocals).
In early 2010, HELLCATS released their first single, "Heavy Metal", which appeared on their "Hellcats" EP the following year. Their second single, "Master Of The Night", was helmed by Davor Kontić and Grant Austin, known as producer of the band LAIBACH. Both songs appear on "Warrior Princess", which was independently released by HELLCATS at the end of 2013 and distributed via CD Baby and iTunes. Two versions of the album were released — English and Slovenian. Dasa Makuc later replaced Kovačič on vocals after the release of the album.
The quartet loves to perform on big stages and has had many gigs in clubs and participated at many festivals (Metalcamp, Viva la Pola, Jelen Demofest) to crowds of up to 12,000 people. The band has toured Russia as well. A tour of Germany is booked for next spring.
