HUNTRESS Release Video Teaser For ‘Zenith’

Friday, 28th June 2013

California occult metallers HUNTRESS have posted a teaser for the track “Zenith” which comes off their follow-up album to their 2012 debut album Spell Eater. Their latest effort, dubbed Starbound Beast, is scheduled for release on June 28th in Europe and on July 2nd in North America via Napalm Records. The teaser clip for “Zenith” may be viewed below.

The band recorded the album at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, AGNOSTIC FRONT). The artwork for Starbound Beast (available below) was created by the renowned Vance Kelly who has also worked with SLAYER, GHOST and MASTODON. Starbound Beast includes the track “I Want to Fuck You to Death”, which was co-written for HUNTRESS singer Jill Janus by legendary MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister. The song is available as an exclusive stream on the HUNTRESS Facebook page.

Janus comments on the collaboration: “I met Lemmy through my former band CHELSEA GIRLS. We’d play hard rock and metal covers featuring guest celebrities. Lemmy was already friends with the girls, so he played ‘Ace Of Spades’ with us and it blew my mind. We stayed in touch and would meet up at The Rainbow for drinks. So I asked him a few months back over Jack & Cokes if he’d write lyrics for a HUNTRESS song and he said, ‘Sure’. A few weeks later, I met him at the studio during MOTÖRHEAD recording sessions. Lemmy handed me two pieces of notebook paper with the lyrics for ‘I Want to Fuck You to Death’. I am beyond honored. To me, this is a love song. It is the most romantic song I’ve ever heard.”

Lemmy comments: “The first time I heard Jill’s voice with CHELSEA GIRLS, it was phenomenal. I wrote these lyrics from her point of view, the Huntress. ‘I Want To Fuck You To Death’ was inspired by her, written for her. I’ve always had a soft spot for her. And a hard spot too…”

In support of Starbound Beast, the band will be touring across North America commencing at the tail end of this month as part of the “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival”. HUNTRESS will be a part of  the Jagermeister Stage alongside MACHINE HEAD, BATTLECROSS and more. A complete list of HUNTRESS stops is available below.
