MISSTALLICA is the WORLD’s ONLY and GREATEST All-Female Tribute to Metallica!!! Formed in 2008 as a side project to the girls’ already successful Queen Diamond (All-Female Tribute to King Diamond/Mercyful Fate), MISSTALLICA was the response to the want and need for old school thrash metal and a pretty face to go with it! MISSTALLICA offers the Metallica experience but with BOOBIES!!!

The MISSTALLICA repertoire focuses on the first 4 Metallica albums (Kill ‘Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets & …And Justice For All) with a few of those cover gems from Garage Inc. thrown in for good measure.

The MISSTALLICA girls are real deal, no joke musicians! They bring the thrash, bang and boom better than most men! Skeptics be prepared for a good olde fashioned ass kicking. Metal friends come one and all to bang your heads!! MISSTALLICA RULES!!!

Kaleen Reading
Kaleen Reading is powerful, fast, hard hitting drummer. Initially beginning her career as a Tony Iommi-worshiping guitar player, she soon changed her path after a random jam session where she ended up on the kit. It wasn’t even a question to her that once she taught herself the basics, she should seek out band mates. Playing with other people is where she really grew into a musician. Currently she plays in 6 bands. The positive mental attitude, and creativity she has not only makes her a good drummer, but also a well-respected and sought after band member. Her original pop/rock/punk band Schocholautte just released their debut full-length album I Hate You in late 2011. In the past year, her noise/punk band Low Fat Getting High has released 5 EPs. Most recently, she has released a self-titled debut album with her hard rock/blues duo Resin Gypsy. Don Jamieson, a host of VH1's "That Metal Show" described Resin Gypsy's work as, "Terrific! It made me happy to hear something so well done, original and creative but with a real old school Cream type of vibe." In the 6 years she has been playing drums, she  has toured nationally and internationally with her band Misstallica, Jon Anderson of Yes, the Butthole Surfers, John Wetton of King Crimson and Asia, and Brendon Small, the creator of the Adult Swim cartoon Metalocalyspe. She has also performed on stage with Dr. Know of Bad Brains, Vernon Reid of Living Colour, Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter of Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers, Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes, and recorded with Mike Keneally of Frank Zappa, Claude Coleman Jr. of Ween, Marco Benevento, and Gail Ann Dorsey of David Bowie.
