When we saw them, Huntress was promoting their debut album, Spell Eater (2012), which featured the incredible “Eight of Swords.” Now, they’re promoting their sophomore effort, Starbound Beast. The Napalm Records album isn’t due out until July 2nd, but you can satiate your palate with the first single, “Blood Sisters.”
Yeah, we think it’s awesome too. It’s a tight track that balances a variety of genres while maintaining the Huntress sound. Janis’ vocals are quite something, as well. In one track she ranges from sounding reminiscent of Lita Ford, sometimes a little bit Bruce Dickinson, and then straight into some death metal growls and black metal screams. Epic! The so-important melodies are strong in “Blood Sisters” as well.
Check out the Starbound Beast preview in theclip below, and don’t forget to go see Huntress on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer.
You can preorder Huntress’ Starbound Beast at iTunes.
