Huntress was born out of the occult darkness that seeped out in Highland Park, California.Heavy classic metal meets singer Jill Janus vocal range of four octaves. Image, poetry and music are closely guarded in mysticism. That emerges on the group's debut ep "Off With Her Head" where Jill gets to use of all her vocal range and the influence of one of her great role models King Diamond emerges.The band 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 fired off a new record one year later! The critically acclaimed sophomore album Starbound Beast was released in July 2013 via Napalm Records. The musicvideo for "Zenith" was nominated for Best Film & Video for “Zenith” at the 2014 REVOLVER Magazine Golden Gods Awards
