After the past year on tour in Europe with Dragonforce and 3 Inches of Blood, fearless metal sensation HUNTRESS are back in the studio working on their follow-up album to Spell Eater. The band is currently working with Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed,Municipal Waste) and Jill Janus states: “Huntress is seriously stoked on Zeuss. He’s the real deal; a true Heavy Metal producer that shares our vision. We are ready to deliver a killer second album, and Zeuss is the man to make it happen. Hail Metal!”
|Huntress – Spell Eater|
Los Angeles based Huntress, whom LA Weekly called, “…true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal” released their buzzworthy debut album Spell Eater earlier in 2012 via Napalm Records. The album, which Metal Hammer calls “a magical debut from the hottest new act of 2012,” was recorded last fall in Los Angeles and was produced by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom and Skeletonwitch).
Huntress was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus and the Southern California metal band Professor. Janus began her ascension into the realm of heavy metal in the Catskill Mountains of New York, where she first developed her unique vocal abilities. Born with a four-octave range, Janus spent years performing as a coloratura soprano. Her classical training is now the foundation for her screams.
The band will be performing at European festivals planned for the next few months including Download and Hammerfest.
