Huntress Comments On Upcoming Album Artwork

After recently announcing the band will be working with famed producer Zeuss on an upcoming release, Huntress has now checked in with the following album update:

“Huntress ‘Album 2’ update! We have confirmed Vance Kelly as album cover artist again! Vance created the epic cover for ‘Spell Eater,’ released April 2012 on Napalm Records. He’s immensely talented and intelligent, committing himself to every project entirely.

“Although we cannot reveal much about our next record yet, I can say Vance’s album cover for Huntress will be out of this world!

“Check out Vance Kelly’s blog here. He’s created some killer art for The Sword, Graveyard, High On Fire, Pentagram, Alice in Chains, Avenged Sevenfold and Death Angel.”

Huntress was nominated as one of the best newcomers of 2012 for our annual year-end awards, and is working on the follow-up to debut album “Spell Eater” (reviewed here).

Huntress Shooting New Music Video For "Spell Eater"

Huntress, which will be touring with Dragonforce in April, has issued the following update about shooting a music video for the “Spell Eater” track:

“Day 2: Spell Eater video shoot. Yesterday was the most magical yet brutal filming I’ve ever experienced.

“It was snowing in the desert, we walked miles wearing nearly nothing. The Goddess has once again blessed Huntress — during the shoot, an epic rainbow appeared, the SAME magic happened during ‘Eight of Swords.’ I believe.

“Today we are shooting in a dry lake & an old black volcano. It’s literally freezing here. Tears came yesterday, it’s the most difficult project I’ve ever done. And the results will be breath taking. Off to hair/make-up. The show must go on.”

“Spell Eater” comes off the new album of the same title, which will see release through Napalm Records in North America on May 8th, 2012.
