Axe was the first female heavy metal artist in South Africa, back in 1992-3. It was a tough time to bring a female power metal artist in amongst the new wave of Death Metal that just took over the country, but she persisted, being billed mainly with Goth/Power acts.
After over a decade of obscurity, she resurfaced with THE INVITATION, the end credit song to UK horror film, THE GHOSTS OF CROWLEY HALL. For fear of copyright issues, her name was changed to LadyAxe and was the name used from there on in.
In 2009 LadyAxe headlined the Windhoek Metalfest in Namibia, making history as the first time a metal band featured three generations of females from the same family. It was a once-off feat, but proved the unpredictable nature of LadyAxe.
