Danish hard rockers Pretty Maids seem to be one of those bands that don’t know how or when to quit – a good thing for us listeners. Despite being so close to a major breakthrough, they never ever put the band to rest. They released their first EP in 1983, an E.P. that promised a lot and made some waves around Metal communities around mostly Europe and Scandinavia. They gained a reputation as a high-class Hard Rock band when they released their debut long player Red Hot And Heavy back in 1984 and they were extremely close to breaking it really big with their most popular album Future World in 1986, opening for big acts like Mötley Crüe and Whitesnake. But for some reason, their big break never came. It would take them three years – an extremely long time back in the 80’s – to release the phenomenal follow-up Jump The Gun and in 1990 it was like people had forgotten about the band.
