HuntressHuntress was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. The band thrives on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band‘s musical concoction of melodic songwriting,occult science and bong rips. Huntress delivers a modern sonic attack while staying true to the roots of heavy metal, with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.
Huntress released their buzzworthy debut album Spell Eater in May 2012 via Napalm Records. The album, which Metal Hammer calls “a magical debut from the hottest new act of 2012,” was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom and Skeletonwitch). The album artwork was created by Vance Kelly ((Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).
Huntress fires off a new record one year later! The critically acclaimed sophomore album Starbound Beast was released in July 2013 via Napalm Records. The band recorded 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.
The powerful pentad is currently writing their third album in Los Angeles, after completing two incredibly successful years of relentless touring. The new album is slated for recording in July 2014, with plans to release this Fall via Napalm Records. One album a year has been a goal for Huntress – for the first three albums – and as Huntress vocalist shares “It’s spiritual journey for myself and band mates, representing the three phases of the Goddess: Maiden, Mother and Crone.”
