  Lizzy Borden is the name of an American heavy metal band that was formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. The band was named after the infamous Lizzie Borden murder case, and the band's lyrics often revolve around horror themes and macabre subject matter.

 Lizzy Borden's original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Lizzy Borden (born Gregory Charles Harges), guitarists Gene Allen and Tony Matuzak, bassist Michael Davis, and drummer Joey Scott Harges (Lizzy Borden's brother). The band's first release was a self-titled EP that was independently produced and released in 1984. The EP was a critical success, and it led to the band being signed to Metal Blade Records.

 Lizzy Borden's debut album, "Love You to Pieces," was released in 1985. The album was produced by Ron Goudie, who had previously worked with acts such as Motley Crue and W.A.S.P. "Love You to Pieces" was well-received by critics and fans, and it featured the hit single "Give 'Em the Axe." The album's success led to Lizzy Borden touring with bands such as W.A.S.P., Twisted Sister, and Y&T.

 Lizzy Borden's second album, "Menace to Society," was released in 1986. The album featured a heavier sound than its predecessor and included the hit single "Notorious." The band continued to tour heavily, and they gained a reputation for their energetic live shows, which often included elaborate stage props and theatrical elements.

 In 1987, Lizzy Borden released their third album, "Visual Lies." The album featured the hit single "Me Against the World" and included a music video that received heavy rotation on MTV. The album also featured a guest appearance by guitarist Steve Vai.

 Lizzy Borden continued to release albums throughout the 1990s, including "Master of Disguise" (1989), "Deal with the Devil" (2000), and "Appointment with Death" (2007). The band's lineup underwent several changes over the years, with Lizzy Borden being the only constant member. However, the band's sound and style remained consistent, and they continued to tour and perform throughout the United States and Europe.

 Lizzy Borden's music is characterized by its heavy guitar riffs, catchy melodies, and theatrical elements.
