Band Description:

 Hellion is an American heavy metal band that was formed in 1982 in Los Angeles, California. The band was founded by vocalist Ann Boleyn, who has been the band's only constant member throughout its history. Over the years, Hellion has released several albums and has become a notable name in the world of heavy metal.

 The early days of Hellion were marked by the band's unique and innovative sound, which blended elements of traditional heavy metal with elements of punk rock and new wave. The band's debut album, "Screams in the Night," was released in 1987 and was met with critical acclaim. The album featured tracks such as "Run for Your Life" and "Bad Attitude," which showcased the band's powerful riffs and Boleyn's distinctive vocals.

 Over the years, Hellion has undergone several lineup changes, with Boleyn being the only constant member. Despite these changes, the band has continued to produce high-quality music that has earned them a dedicated following among heavy metal fans.

 One of Hellion's most notable accomplishments is their work in promoting women in heavy metal. Boleyn has been a vocal advocate for women in the genre, and has worked to create opportunities for women to succeed in a male-dominated industry. In 1984, Hellion became the first all-female metal band to be signed to a major label, and they have continued to inspire and encourage women to pursue their dreams of playing heavy metal.

 In addition to their music, Hellion has also made an impact on the world of fashion. Boleyn's unique and eye-catching stage outfits have become a signature of the band's style, and have influenced fashion trends in the heavy metal community.

 Despite their many accomplishments, Hellion remains a somewhat underrated band in the heavy metal world. However, their influence can be seen in the work of many modern metal bands, and their legacy as pioneers of women in heavy metal is secure.
