HUNTRESS Frontwoman Interviewed By CAPITAL CHAOS (Video)

AmbPirate of Capital Chaos conducted an interview with vocalist Jill Janus of the Los Angeles-based, occult-themed traditional heavy metal band HUNTRESS on June 30 at the Mountain View, California stop of this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. You can now watch the chat below.

HUNTRESS' sophomore album, "Starbound Beast", was released on June 28 in Europe and on July 2 in North America via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, MUNICIPAL WASTE). The cover artwork for the effort was once again created by Vance Kelly (THE SWORD, GRAVEYARD, HIGH ON FIRE, PENTAGRAM, ALICE IN CHAINS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, DEATH ANGEL), who previously worked on the group's debut album, last year's "Spell Eater".

"Starbound Beast" includes the track "I Want to Fuck You to Death", which was co-written for Jill Janus by legendary MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Says Janus about 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 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 said: "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..."

The song is available as an exclusive stream on the HUNTRESS Facebook page. When visiting the page, clicking the "like" button will enable the audio.
