HUNTRESS: New Video Interview With JILL JANUS
Metal Injection‘s Noa Avior conducted an interview with vocalist Jill Janus of Los Angeles-based metallers HUNTRESS when the band played in New York City on March 31 as part of the “Paganfest America Part III” tour with TURISAS, ALESTORM and ARKONA. You can now watch the chat below.
HUNTRESS‘s debut album, “Spell Eater”, will be released on April 27 via Napalm Records.
“Spell Eater” track listing:
01. Spell Eater
03. Sleep and Death
04. Snow Witch
05. Eight of Swords
07. Night Rape
10. The Tower
11. The Dark
Janus told AOL‘s Noisecreep about the “Spell Eater” artwork, “The album cover captures the beauty and brutality of HUNTRESS. Vance Kelly is a warlock and he took our vision and created a magical illustration that breathes glory into the old crone. We contemplated having either a sultry sorceress or decrepit forest witch as our cover babe. Ultimately, the crone won because she is the true Huntress.”
According to a press release, “Janus is an operatic banshee with an unparalleled four-octave range and lust for the occult. Born and raised in the Catskill Mountains of New York, she toured Europe as a teenage opera starlet. Upon her return to the States, Janus embraced Manhattan nightlife, creating Felliniesque cabarets and parties in a nihilistic club scene. Years later, Janus moved to Los Angeles and began the gestation period of HUNTRESS. In 2009 she met underground metal band PROFESSOR. The universe spread her legs and delivered HUNTRESS to Janus, combining former members of PROFESSOR, DARK BLACK and SKELETONWITCH.”
HUNTRESS is currently supporting DRAGONFORCE on a North American tour.
