ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL GOES PINK – CHICAGO, IL

We are pleased to announce The 6th annual ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL and The Keep A Breast Foundation are coming together on July 27th in Chicago IL, to draw worldwide attention to the prevention of breast cancer.  Keep A Breast will be providing shirts, bracelets, pins and accessories to all bands, sponsors, crew, etc and ask that everyone wear them in Chicago as KAB films a video to launch to show the world that Metalheads love boobies!!

 

Keep A Breast will be set up both in the Festival area, working with concert goers, and also in the backstage near press, launching a photo-sharing social media initiative on-site and taking video testimonials from bands on how cancer has impacted their lives, or sharing a message of support.

 

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival will also be making a donation from the Chicago date to Keep A Breast, to support their prevention and education programs to eradicate breast cancer. As we know 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Out of all cases of breast cancer, 1 in 233 occur in women age 39 and younger. Keep A Breast provides support for young people impacted by cancer and educating our peers about prevention, early detection, and helped raise awareness about cancer-causing toxins in our everyday environment.

 

In 2012, Keep A Breast participated in 256 events including the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with the goal of educating and speaking to new audience reaching nearly one million young people and educating them on methods of prevention, early detection, and about health risks.

 

For every $2 spent on KAB’s Traveling Education Booth program, Keep A Breast has the opportunity to educate ten more people with life saving information.  This year our goal is to raise $100,000 for our Traveling Education Booth to allow us to reach half a million more young people.

 

 

About:

The Keep A Breast Foundation is the leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization. Our mission is to eradicate breast cancer for future generations. We provide support programs for young people impacted by cancer and educate people about prevention, early detection, and cancer-causing toxins in our everyday environment.

 

The Keep A Breast Foundation is headquartered in the United States as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. We are supported in fulfilling our mission by international partners Keep A Breast Canada, Keep A Breast Europe, and Keep A Breast Japan.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL and Jägermeister Join Forces with Celebrity Chef CHRIS SANTOS for Signings and More – Beginning July 23rd in Holmdel, NJ

Jägermeister, a brand as deeply rooted in music as it is in mythology and lore, has been a proud sponsor of the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL since its inception and this year is no different. Jägermeister is back with the best Mayhem experience to date which includes presenting the festival stage headlined by MACHINE HEAD, a legendary JagerWorld experience, The Metal of Honor Award, the brand’s first-ever Guitar Shred-Meister competition, Celebrity Chef signings and daily artist signings for those of legal drinking age.

 

Yes, you heard right! Chris Santos will join the 2013 ROCKSTAR  ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL for the remainder of the summer, where he will be taking part in signings at the Jägermeister  booth, co-hosting the Shred-Meister competition, cooking Jägermeister-infused recipes at the official after-parties and for artists, and whipping up private meals for the headlining artists!

 

“I’m beyond excited to be joining the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL on behalf of Jagermeister and to spread the word about the Jägermeister “Charred” BBQ Contest happening this summer,” states Celebrity guest chef Chris Santos. “I’ll be doing signings daily and roaming the festival all day so if you see me grab me and say hello and we’ll chat about Jäger or hit the pit!”

 

As Santos mentioned above, his appearances are all a part of the “Charred, Earn your Place at the Pit” BBQ Competition, a search for the best grill recipes incorporating Jägermeister. The challenge, which kicked off in June, is divided into three categories: Cow, Bird and Hog, from which Santos selects one winner per category. He has joined a panel of judges including barbecue expert Chef Daniel Delaney, a representative for Jägermeister, and a musical artist, in selecting the top recipe. Category winners receive an expertly butchered whole hog, half cow or a flock of fowls and the grand prize winner will be awarded a BBQ-scorched trip for two to New York City to sample grilled offerings from the nation’s top barbecue eateries and chefs.

 

For more information on the Jagermeister “Charred” BBQ Contest and appearances, visit http://santoscooks.com/jagermeister-summer/.

 

 

As mentioned above, each day Jägermeister and the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL presents the Metal of Honor award to a veteran in attendance. Every day, each veteran over the age of 21 with a Metal of Honor wristband receives a raffle ticket for a custom Metal of Honor/Jägermeister guitar to be presented to one of these hometown heroes on the main stage to thank them for their service. See below for a great photo from one of this weekend’s Metal of Honor moments!

AMON AMARTH Graces The Cover Of Decibel Magazine

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour Currently Underway

In conjunction with their slot on this year’s edition of the Rockster Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Swedish melodic death metal legion, AMON AMARTH, grace the cover of the August 2013 issue of Decibel Magazine!

Conducted by J. Bennett in Stockholm, Sweden, the intimate feature follows the band through their early days and escalating success, tour life, and the creation of their most compelling record to date: Deceiver of the Gods. A must-read for any AMON AMARTHdisciple.

The issue is on sale NOW. Purchase your copy HERE.

The recently unleashed Deceiver of the Gods was released in North America via Metal Blade Records on June 25, recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Killswitch Engage, Megadeth, Opeth) and broke the band’s previous sales records around the world! The band is now in their second week on the Billboard Top 200 in the U.S. (week one: #19 and week 2: #59) and third week on the Top 100 Charts in Germany (week one: #3, week two: #13, and week three:  #23).

Literally invading U.S. shores, AMON AMARTH‘s main stage slot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, currently underway, the band’s mammoth stage production, including a Viking Longboat and the amassing armies in the war between Odin and Loki, has lit up the internet with excitement for the band’s set. Said Metalassault.com, “the stunning stage production was what really made this AMON AMARTH show stand out from their own past shows, and indeed from all other bands that played this festival.” Agreed Mxdwn.com “Perhaps the day’s best set came next at the main stage. Swedish Viking rockers AMON AMARTH delivered the best tenets of Scandinavian death metal. Fronting a massive mural of their new album Deceiver of the Gods… the band also proudly displayed a full-scale Viking battle barge as the centerpiece of their set design. Their drummer Fredrik Andersson was perched atop semi-hidden by the ship’s bow. The group’s equally large lead singer Johan Hegg bounded from one side of the stage to the other bellowing in his demonic howl. The title track from their new album and ‘Death in Fire’ were both great, but it was ‘Twilight of the Thunder God’ that packed the most punch and fury.”

AMON AMARTH is currently putting the finishing touches on the official video for colossal track “Father Of The Wolf.” The video will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Until then, check out the trailer now playing at the band’s microsite: http://deceiver.amonamarth.com.

“Deceiver of the Gods goes from rampaging to brooding to anthemic over a well-conceived trajectory…. This is an album that begs to be consumed in its entirety at every listen, just to get the full experience.” – Decibel

“No one delivers big, punch-in-the-face motifs better than AMON AMARTH, and the Swedish melodic-death-metal titans have excelled themselves on their ninth studio album… Not only does Johan Hegg deliver his fiercest growls ever, but he also duets mesmerizingly with operatic ex-Candlemass frontman Messiah Marcolin on ‘Hel.'” – Revolver

“…so good that it might prove to be one of their best albums since the days of The Crusher and Once Sent From The Golden Hall.” – The New Noise

“…easily one of the strongest and most diverse records the Swedes have ever made… gloriously extravagant…” – Metal Hammer

“…it’s the energy AMON AMARTH convey more than anything else that makes Deceiver of the Gods so emphatic — especially the interplay and layering of different rhythmic patterns, like adrenaline pumping through the system, so that no matter how heavy things get, they’re never weighed down.” – Exclaim!

Thrown Into Exile: Diamond In the Rough At Mayhem

As the only unsigned band on The Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2013, Thrown Into Exile may seem like they are fighting an uphill battle.  But these guys have the attitudes and chops of seasoned vets.  As winners of last years of the “Road to Mayhem” competition they are obviously no strangers to the fest.  They also worked on last years EP with DevilDrivers guitar player Mike Spreitzer producing and it worked so well that their new full length effort will be produced by Mike as well.  Even though they are unsigned they also have endorsement deals with EMG Pickups, Peavey Amplifiers, Coffin Case, and Pearl Drums.  PGHMUSICMAG’s Alan caught up with vocalist Evan and guitarist Mario to talk about what they have been up to and how Mayhem has been treating them so check out our interview here.  And finally, would someone please freakin’ SIGN THESE GUYS!!! It’s unbelievable they have not been picked up yet!  If you are headed to Mayhem make sure you get there early and go to The Musicians Institute Stage and check them out.  You will be able to say you saw history in the making…

Jill from Huntress Tells PGHMUSICMAG She Wants To…

Jill from Huntress took some time backstage at The Rockstar Mayhem Festival in Pittsburgh to speak with PGHMUSICMAG about all that is going on with the band.  Watch the video to learn a little more about what goes on after hours at Mayhem, hanging with Lemmy, what is up after Mayhem, and much more…

HUNTRESS have confirmed they will be touring late summer with Danzig as he celebrates his 25th Anniversary with Doyle.  These tour dates kick off immediately following the band’s run with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, and Heavy MTL Festival in Montreal, Canada.  The tour starts August 13th in Bethlehem, PA, and runs through August 31st in Tempe, AZ.  A complete list of dates can be found below.HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus commented on the upcoming tour with Danzig:

HUNTRESS is honored and thrilled to be the opening act for Danzig’s summer 25th anniversary tour with Doyle! I speak for all my bandmates when I say Danzig and the Misfits were immensely influential during our angsty teenage years. I’m taking a time machine back to high-five and freak out with my thirteen year old self! This rules!”

 

HUNTRESS has generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill, Starbound Beast, has been released and is available now via Napalm Records. The album is available for purchase on iTunes,Amazon and in Best Buy stores in the US.

The band recently filmed their music video for “Zenith” from their new album Starbound Beast.  An exclusive trailer has been posted and can be viewed HERE.  The spectacular video was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE‘s “Fertile Green” was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Look for the video to receive its exclusive premiere via Bloody Disgusting soon.

HUNTRESS are taking part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.  In addition to performing every day, vocalist Jill Janus will host the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition.  Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom  Jägermeister guitar from Schecter, and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a  custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).  The artwork  for Starbound Beast  was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

AMON AMARTH Score Their Strongest Chart Impacts Around The World

The release of Deceiver of the Gods, the latest studio album from Swedish melodic death metal titans, AMON AMARTH, has broken the band’s previous sales records around the world.  The album landed at #19 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #19 on the Top Current Albums Chart. The band’s last album, Surtur Rising, entered the Top 200 Chart at #34 making Deceiver of the Gods the band’s highest charting record to date.

 

In Germany, Deceiver of the Gods entered the Top 100 Chart at #3, the official Media Market/Saturn Chart at #3 and the German Media Control Weekend Trend Chart at #2.

 

Deceiver of the Gods came in at #9 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, #2 on the Hard Music Charts and #21 on the Digital Music Chart. Additionally, the record came in at #2 on the iTunes Metal Chart, #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart and #7 on the iTunes Top 200.

 

In the UK, the record entered the official Album Charts at #67, the Rock/Metal Chart at #4 and the Independent Chart at #14 marking the highest UK chart placements for the band yet.

 

Elsewhere, Deceiver of the Gods came in at #9 on the Top 100 Album Chart in Switzerland, #7 on the Austrian Top 100, #9 in Sweden, #27 in Denmark, #51 in France, #34 in Czech Republic and #51 in Hungary.

 

Comments the band of their latest triumph: “The fan reaction to Deceiver of the Gods around the globe is both amazing and overwhelming. Our fans are strong and true and we are humbled by the support. We look forward to visiting everyone on the road.”

 

Deceiver of the Gods, released in North America via Metal Blade Records on June 25th, was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Killswitch Engage, Megadeth, Opeth) and is reaping critical accolades internationally.  Notes Decibel Magazine in a 9/10 rating of the record: “Deceiver of the Gods goes from rampaging to brooding to anthemic over a well-conceived trajectory…. This is an album that begs to be consumed in its entirety at every listen, just to get the full experience.” Revolver Magazine shares the sentiment, “No one delivers big, punch-in-the-face motifs better than AMON AMARTH, and the Swedish melodic-death-metal titans have excelled themselves on their ninth studio album… Not only does Johan Hegg deliver his fiercest growls ever, but he also duets mesmerizingly with operatic ex-Candlemass frontman Messiah Marcolin on ‘Hel.’” Metal Hammer crowns Deceiver of the Gods, “easily one of the strongest and most diverse records the Swedes have ever made,” and “gloriously extravagant” commending the band’s “explosive blend of brutish riffing and unapologetic Maiden worship…”

 

Literally invading U.S. shores, AMON AMARTH’s main stage slot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest stuck awe into the hearts of media and fans alike when it opened last Saturday in San Bernardino, California. The band’s mammoth stage production, including a Viking Longboat and the amassing armies in the war between Odin and Loki, has lit up the internet with excitement for the band’s set.  Said Metalassault.com, “the stunning stage production was what really made this AMON AMARTH show stand out from their own past shows, and indeed from all other bands that played this festival.”

 

In related news, AMON AMARTH is currently putting the finishing touches on the official video for colossal track “Father Of The Wolf.” The video will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Until then, check out the trailer now playing at the band’s microsite:http://deceiver.amonamarth.com.

HUNTRESS Release Trailer For “Zenith” Video

HUNTRESS has generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill,Starbound Beast, is available now in Europe and will be released this Tuesday July 2nd in North America via Napalm Records. The album can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon.

 

The band recently completed work on a video for their song “Zenith”.  A video teaser has been posted and can be viewed HERE.  The clip was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE‘s “Fertile Green” was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Look for the video to receive its exclusive premiere via Bloody Disgusting soon.

 

In support of the release of Starbound Beast HUNTRESS is hitting the road on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which kicked off  in San Bernardino, CA.  In addition to performing everyday, vocalist Jill Janus will host the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition.  Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom Jägermeister guitar from Schecter and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

 

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).  The artwork for Starbound Beast was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

 

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

Vocals: Jill Janus
Guitars: Blake Meahl
Guitars: Anthony Crocamo
Bass: Ian Alden
Drums: Carl Wierzbicky

AMON AMARTH: Track-By-Track Video Premiere Hosted By Metal Insider

In celebration of its impending North American release just one week away, today Metal Insider offers up an exclusive track-by-track video premiere of AMON AMARTH‘s Deceiver of the Gods. The vibrant art clip includes snippets of each of the record’s epic ten tracks. Additionally, fans can enjoy the accompanying written commentary discussing the themes of each song as relayed by vocalist Johan Hegg.

Check out the video, hosted by Metal Insider, at metalinsider.net.

Having blasted onto the Swedish melodic death metal scene with 1998’s Once Sent from the Golden Hall, every AMON AMARTH album has arrived bursting at the seams with power, melody and immersive storytelling centered around the richness of Norse mythology. Deceiver of the Gods is no exception, capturing the band at the peak of their powers.

Recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK and produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Opeth, Megadeth, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage) Deceiver Of The Godsboasts another exceptional Tom Thiel-created cover depicting a mythical battle between the Norse Gods Loki and Thor.

Though the record isn’t limited to one specific theme, the character of Loki, commonly thought of as a dark and mischievous entity, has a strong presence, and also inspired the title Deceiver Of The Gods. For Hegg however, the appeal of the character lies with the fact he is not simply drawn in black and white, as others might believe. “I think what’s intriguing about him is that he’s probably the most human of all the gods in northern mythology. A lot of people see him as an evil character, but he’s not the equivalent of Satan. He also does a lot of good things, and particularly with his talent for diplomacy he manages to get the gods out of trouble a lot of times. The only problem is that he’s usually the one that gets them into trouble in the first place! I just think he is really engaging in that he possesses a lot of human traits in the sense that we can do good and bad. We can be fantastic people and great people and huge people, and we can be very, very small people. We can be small minded and egocentric and devious and all of those negative things, and I like how he reflects that.”

Deceiver of the Gods will be released in North America via Metal Blade Records June 25th, in Europe June 21st/24th and Japan on June 26th. Special preorder packages are still available at this location: http://www.metalblade.com/amonamarth.

HUNTRESS Hosting “Virtual Yard Sale” For Mayhem Festival Tour Support

photo1creditneilzlozowe

 

HUNTRESS has generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill is Starbound Beast, to be released on July 2nd during the band’s run with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Huntress is about to embark on the biggest tour opportunity of their new career, as well as the most demanding and expensive. HUNTRESS has teamed up with fellow Mayhem brothers Battlecross to share the cost for a bus this summer, since their tour vans can’t handle the extreme heat. And that is only the beginning of the financial strain for a young metal band with minimal tour support.

 

HUNTRESS has started an indiegogo (Virtual Yard Sale) campaign to ensure their participation in the festival. Check out their indiegogo page HERE, featuring enticing packages and unique collector items. Some of the perks offered are signed CD DigiPaks and Vinyl of their upcoming album Starbound Beast, and packages that feature tickets to Mayhem Festival plus hang outs with the band. Water balloon fights, parking lot BBQs and Astrological readings with Jill Janus are also offered up for sacrifice. Some of the most exclusive perks include the sword prop and red cloak from the “Eight of Swords” video, and Blake’s 1979 Custom GMC Vandura. More items and unique opportunities will be added as well.

 

In more HUNTRESS related Mayhem news, vocalist Jill Janus will host the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition.  Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom Jägermeister guitar from Schecter and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

 

Starbound Beast will be released on June 28th in Europe and on July 2nd in North America via Napalm Records.  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 was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

 

HUNTRESS has just revealed the first song off the new record titled “I Want to Fuck You to Death”, co-written by Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. To hear the streaming version now, check out the HUNTRESS Facebook Page.  Click the “LIKE US TO DEATH” tab or visit this direct link: http://a.pgtb.me/jsQf9xx

 

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

Vocals: Jill Janus
Guitars: Blake Meahl

John 5 (of Rob Zombie) talks to PGHMUSICMAG About Rockstar Mayhem Festival& Much More!

John 5 seems like he is everywhere at once.  The multi talented guitarist cannot be pigeonholed into any style of playing and he continues to challenge himself and be the humble virtuoso that he has become.  The self admitted perfectionist is hard at work figuring out not only how to make sure all the songs are tip top, but how to make sure that the show is everything that the fans expect it to be.  Venemous Rat Regeneration Vendor  is already climbing the charts and quieting the critics that have been saying Zombie has not been at the top of his game for some time, who are now eating crow and heralding the sounds and scene that John 5, Piggy D, Ginger Fish have helped Rob Zombie create.  (Pay attention to the exclusive John gives us about the writing of Teenage Nosferatu in the following interview!!!)

loudwire.com
loudwire.com

Preparing to rip apart the main stage as the headliner of The 2013 Rockstar Mayhem Festival as Rob Zombie’s guitarist, John took some time from their pre-Mayhem production work in L.A. to talk with Pittsburgh Music Magazine’s Editor and COO, Alan, about the experience of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and what Rob Zombie and company have in store, winning the best guitarist award at The Revolver Golden God Awards, the new Rob Zombie LP Venemous Rat Regeneration Vendor, having some guitars and personal items stolen from his home, solo work, and working with David Lee Roth.  Listen to our exclusive interview here!!!

 BUTCHER BABIES are proud to announce the July 9 release of ‘Goliath’ on Century Media Records.  

The Los Angeles-based band – frontwomen Carla Harvey and Heidi Shephard, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner – wrapped their tour with Marilyn Manson in late-February and went straight into the studio with producer Josh Wilbur [Gojira, Lamb Of God, Hatebreed]. The results offer an undeniable mission statement to the metal community: forget everything you think you know about the BUTCHER BABIES, because they’ve got their sights set to slay on ‘Goliath.’

“Working with Josh Wilbur was an incredible experience because he helped us explore ourselves as musicians and further develop the unique sound that is the BUTCHER BABIES,” says the band of their recording experience. “Being a debut album, this has been in the works since we were young, and we are so proud to have created a collaboration of all our personal influences into one complete sound.”

‘GOLIATH’ Track Listing:

1. “I Smell A Massacre

2. “Magnolia Blvd.”

3. “C8H18 (Gasoline)”

4. “Grim Sleeper”

5. “Goliath”

6. “In Denial”

7. “Give Me Reason”

8. “The Mirror Never Lies”

9. “Dead Poet”

10. “The Deathsurround”

11. “Axe Wound”

BUTCHER BABIES will celebrate the album’s release as part of this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they will be a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and spend the summer alongside heavyweights including Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Machine Head, Mastodon and Amon Amarth.

HUNTRESS to Release Starbound Beast July 2nd in North America on Napalm Records

Artwork Revealed at RevolverMag.com

    

HUNTRESS is back with the follow up to their buzzworthy debut album Spell Eater, which was released in 2012.  The album entitled Starbound Beast has been confirmed for release on June 28thin Europe and on July 2nd in North America via Napalm Records.  The band recorded the album at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles, CA, working with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front).

 

HUNTRESS has teamed up with RevolverMag.com, the online home of Revolver Magazine for an exclusive premiere of the album artwork for Starbound Beast.  Check it out HERE.  The artwork was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

In support of Starbound Beast the band will be touring across North America this summer as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.   The band will be featured on the Jagermeister Stage alongside Machine Head, Battlecross & Others.  The tour kicks off June 29th in San Bernardino, CA and runs through August 4th in Dallas, TX.  A complete list of dates can be found below.  The band took part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Press Conference and performed live, check out footage HERE.

 

HUNTRESS was spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips.HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.
