Rated 4.5/5 (90%) (4 Votes)

Los Angeles' Hellion were apparently underrated/overlooked for their time. That's the only explanation for how the band's sophomore album, 1990's The Black Book, managed to escape my radar for all these years. This is top-notch, traditional Heavy Metal, with more than a passing nod to US Power Metal. Ann Boleyn's vocals are the true shining point of the album, with a power and grit that easily rivals her male counterparts. Check out "Losing Control" to hear just how much ass Hellion were capable of kicking, and then kick yourself in the ass for not checking them out sooner.
