Artist Biography by

This US heavy metal group from Florida, USA, was fronted by twin sisters Pam and Paula Mattiola (formerly topless stars of Playboy magazine). Their debut album featured guitarists Pedro Riera and Bryan Le Mar, bass player Mars Cowling (ex-Pat Travers) and drummer Keith Daniel Cronin, and was produced by Aerosmith supremo Jack Douglas. Mid-paced pop metal anthems and the occasional power ballad were the order of the day, penned within a very limited musical framework. The album sold poorly and the Mattiola twins fired the entire band, recruiting Scott Migone (guitar), Joey O’Jeda (bass, keyboards) and Kenny Wendland (drums) in their place. A second album recorded in 1989 remains unreleased, delayed by legal complications that eventually saw the twins move to new home Scotti Bros (as Cell Mates).
