For more information on HUNTRESS, visit:
HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal band Professor in Highland Park, CA (2010). Having rapidly released three critically acclaimed studio albums, the melodic heavy metal pentad fast tracked touring the world as a supporting act to metal heavyweights Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Amon Amarth, Killswitch Engage, Testament, Danzig and Dragonforce. Huntress 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 2012 on Napalm Records. One year later in 2013, the critically-acclaimed Starbound Beast was a sophomore success. Lemmy Kilmister penned lyrics for “I Want To Fuck You To Death” which quickly became a radio hit. Their third album Static was released on September 25, 2015 to stellar reviews. Huntress continues to be driven by a fierce work ethic and a relentless tour schedule. This fall they’ll tour with Trivium and Sabaton, and make a stop in San Bernardino, CA to play Ozzfest on Sept 24.
