huntress



Huntress are back with the follow up to their buzzworthy debut album 'Spell Eater', which was released in 2012. The album entitled 'Starbound Beast' will be released on July 1st via Napalm Records.

The band recorded the album at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front). The artwork for 'Starbound Beast was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

Huntress has unveiled the first song from 'Starbound Beast'. The track entitled 'I Want To Fuck You To Death' was co-written for singer Jill Janus by legendary Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Frontwoman Jill Janus spoke about the collaboration: "I met Lemmy through my former band Chelsea Girls. We'd play hard rock and Metal covers featuring guest celebrities. Lemmy was already friends with the girls, so he played 'Ace Of Spades' with us and it blew my mind. We stayed in touch and would meet up at The Rainbow for drinks.

"So I asked him a few months back over Jack and Cokes if he'd write lyrics for a Huntress song and he said 'Sure'. A few weeks later, I met him at the studio during Motorhead recording sessions. Lemmy handed me two two pieces of notebook paper with the lyrics for 'I Want To Fuck You To Death'.

"I am beyond honored. To me, this is a love song. It is the most romantic song I've ever heard."

Lemmy also spoke of the collaboration: "The first time I heard Jill's voice with Chelsea Girls, it was phenomenal. I wrote these lyrics from her point of view, the Huntress. 'I Want To Fuck You To Death' was inspired by her, written for her. I've always had a soft spot for her. And a hard spot too..."

In support of 'Starbound Beast' the band will be touring across North America this summer as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band will be featured on the Jagermeister Stage alongside Machine Head, Battlecross and others. The tour kicks off June 29th in San Bernardino, CA and runs through August 4th in Dallas, TX. The band took part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Press Conference and performed live, check out footage at the bottom of this page.

Huntress was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground Metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band's musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. Huntress remains true to the roots of melodic Heavy Metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black Metal.

HUNTRESS Lineup:
Vocals: Jill Janus
Guitars: Blake Meahl
Guitars: Anthony Crocamo
Bass: Ian Alden
Drums: Carl Wierzbicky

Huntress will play DOWNLOAD 2013 on June 16th.







WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.
