Los Angeles based, heavy metallers Huntress released audio samples of their upcoming sophomore album entitled “Starbound Beast” due on June 28th via Napalm Records. The album was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris and the cover artwork was once again created by Vance Kelly.
“Starbound Beast” includes the track “I Want to Fuck You to Death“, which was co-written for Huntress singer Jill Janus by legendary Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
The song is available as an exclusive stream on the Huntress Facebook page.
“Starbound Beast” – Track listing:
01. Enter The Exosphere
02. Blood Sisters
03. I Want To Fuck You To Death
04. Destroy Your Life
05. Starbound Beast
09. Spectra Spectral

11. Running Wild (Judas Priest cover)
Huntress vocalist Jill Janus states the band’s inspiration for the album came the cosmos. “I began to open the star gate 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 new material.
Singer Liv Kristine commented: “The vocal recordings for all songs of our up-coming release have just been completed. Moreover, Alex is already busy with the mix of the album.
We have taken a great inspirational step since the production of “Meredead”, both sound-wise and vocal-wise. It has been such a pleasure evolving in my singing techniques and knowledge and I thank my band members for “giving me an inspirational kick” when I needed to gain momentum behind the microphone.
“Symphonies of the Night” is hauntingly dream-like and heavy to the core!“.
