Hellcats is an all-female rock metal band from Slovenia and is the first all female metal band from there. The band was formed in 2006 in Ljubljana by sisters Sasha Zagorc (bass guitar) and Sonja Zagorc (drums), who started to perform together in their childhood, while they were still at music school. Sasha was studying classical guitar and Sonja flute. Later on Sonja switched to drums and they formed a band. Due to the small size of Slovenian music space it wasn't easy to find many female musicians. After a few band member changes, Hellcats line-up was completed by Katja Mavec (guitar) and Dasa Makuc (vocals).
In early 2010, HELLCATS released their first single, "Heavy Metal", which appeared on their "Hellcats" EP the following year. Their second single, "Master Of The Night", was helmed by Davor Kontić and Grant Austin, known as producer of the band LAIBACH. Both songs appear on "Warrior Princess", which was independently released by HELLCATS at the end of 2013 and distributed via CD Baby and iTunes. Two versions of the album were released — English and Slovenian(Divja pot). Dasa Makuc later replaced Kovačič on vocals after the release of the album.
The quartet loves to perform on big stages and has had many gigs in clubs and participated at many festivals (Metalcamp, Viva la Pola, Jelen Demofest) to crowds of up to 12,000 people. The band has toured Russia as well. A tour of Germany is booked for next spring.
