Wikimetal podcast (audio):
Formed in 2001, these five women — Kirsten “Bruce Chickinson” Rosenberg, Linda “Nikki McBURRain” McDonald, Wanda “Steph Harris” Ortiz, Elizabeth “Devina Murray” Schall and Courtney “Adriana Smith” Cox — comprise excellent musicianship with an elaborate stage show with effects and appearances from IRON MAIDEN mascot, “Eddie”, and other theatrical characters that have gained the band national and international recognition. This female musical force has the energy and chemistry reminiscent of IRON MAIDEN itself.
