Huntress’ latest album cover is adorned with a demonic portrayal of front woman Jill Janus, created by Vance Kelly who also created album covers for previous albums ‘Spell Eater’ and ‘Starbound Beast.’

The sound of ‘Static’ is no messing about NWOBHM, which charges along for the duration overlaid with Janus’ for octave range Amazonian vocals. The record was produced by Grammy nominated engineer Paul Fig (Alice in Chains, Deftones, Trivium, Ghost BC) and Jim Rota (Fireball Ministry) and Engineered and Mixed by Paul Fig. This high quality production team have produced a crisp sound which means that Huntresses NWOBHM influences do not lead to a dated sound on this album.

Being more of a fan of fusion metal genres this album failed to win me over but I can hear it is quality stuff and if you like you metal to be pure, simple and tinged with seventies occult psychedelia this is for you
