Meanstreak is an all-female metal band from New York, formed in 1985 by Marlene Portnoy (guitars) and Rena Sands (guitars) who along with bandmates Bettina France (vocals), Martens Myung (bass), and Yael (drums), forged their way into male dominated territory, becoming one of the first all-female thrash metal bands. With influences such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica, they were true pioneers for women in metal and recorded an album with legendary producer Alex Perialas at Pyramid Sound in Ithaca, NY. Meanstreak’s 1988 release Roadkill put them on the metal charts and is considered one of the best female thrash metal albums of all time. They disbanded in the early 90’s when the grunge scene took over and recently reunited in 2022 to bring back their hard hitting, melodic, heavy metal blend to the studio and stage. Meanstreak will be hitting the road this summer and will be recording their unreleased demos as well as some newly written material later in 2022.
