HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands PROFESSOR and DARK BLACK. HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus states the band's inspiration for the album came the cosmos. "I began to open the stargate with "Spell Eater", and specifically the song "Sleep and Death" which references deep space. We are children of Earth, but crave the stars, the vast galactic unknown. I began writing the second album while on tour last summer in Europe. I'd wake up at odd hours while everyone slept and began receiving lyrics and melodies that were expanding beyond my knowledge of the occult." "Starbound Beast" will blow minds; HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal, but has advanced musically and will indeed surprise many metal fanatics with their stunning new material. The band's thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses are derived from the musical concoction of esoteric science and bong rips. "Starbound Beast" is your ship to other realms and beyond!
