Lizzy Borden is an American heavy metal band that was formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. The band was named after the infamous accused murderer Lizzie Borden, who was tried and acquitted for the axe murders of her father and stepmother in 1892. Lizzy Borden, the band's founder and lead vocalist, adopted the name as a stage persona.

Lizzy Borden's music is characterized by its heavy and melodic sound, drawing influences from traditional heavy metal, power metal, and glam metal. They are often associated with the 1980s glam metal scene but have maintained a darker and more theatrical image than many of their contemporaries. The band's lyrics often explore themes of horror, fantasy, and the macabre, reflecting their namesake's infamous history.

The band's debut album, "Love You to Pieces", was released in 1985 and received positive reviews for its energetic and melodic heavy metal sound. The album featured songs like "American Metal" and "Rod of Iron" that became fan favorites. Lizzy Borden's theatrical stage performances, which incorporated elaborate costumes and props, helped them stand out in the metal scene of the time.

In 1987, Lizzy Borden released their second album, "Menace to Society", which continued to showcase their heavy and melodic sound. The album included tracks such as "Notorious" and "The World Is Mine", which further solidified the band's reputation for catchy hooks and memorable choruses.

After several lineup changes and a hiatus in the 1990s, Lizzy Borden returned with new material in the 2000s. The band released albums such as "Deal with the Devil" in 2000 and "Appointment with Death" in 2007, which were well-received by fans of the genre.

Lizzy Borden's music and stage presence have influenced numerous bands in the heavy metal and glam metal scenes. Their blend of theatricality, heavy riffs, and melodic hooks has made them a respected and enduring name in the genre. Over the years, Lizzy Borden has toured extensively and has shared the stage with notable acts like Motörhead, W.A.S.P., and Y&T.
