Hellectra, a hard rock’n’rose quartet, are born in 2009, with Vale “Ska” Guidetti on drums, Claire Giaminardi on guitar and Giulia “Juliet” Meli as singer and front girl. After many lineup changes, in 2010 the young but energetic bass player Annalisa “Annie” Carpignano is added to the band.

Their sound quickly evolves, taking inspiration from the band they admire the most: The Runaways. Thus a feminine hard rock sound is born, aggressive and sexually charged, with influences that go from punk rock to glam metal, with a touch of classic rock’n’roll.

Hellectra is currently on tour in various Italian towns, and has been on stage with names such as Kee Marcello. In July of 2011, they were featured as a musical interlude at the World Championships of Archery in Turin.

They are influenced by bands the likes of The Runaways, Girlschool, The Donnas, Hole, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Vixen, Warrant, Hardcore Superstar, T Rex, Rock Goddess, Meanstreak, Ida Maria and Plastiscines.

Lineup:
Vale “Ska” Guidetti – drums

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
