2013 was a great year for video director Phil Mucci, as his work on Stone Sour's 'Do Me a Favor' and Huntress' 'Zenith' promos landed not only on Loudwire's 10 Best Rock and Metal Videos lists, but other site's Top 10 lists as well. Beginning several years back with High on Fire's 'Fertile Green,' Opeth's 'The Devil's Orchard' and Pig Destroyer's 'The Diplomat,' Mucci's videos began to take on a more distinctive animated style.
With Mayhem Festival behind them and their current tour with Lamb of God under way, the road warriors of Huntress have had one busy year! Their sophomore record ‘Starbound Beast’ has captured fans with its perfect combination of melodies and brutality. It’s no surprise when you listen to the music of Huntress that it takes you into another realm.
It's bound to be one of the top tours of the fall, as Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage are teaming up for a co-headlining trek. As if that weren't enough, they'll be joined by thrash metal vets Testament and one of the hottest up-and-coming bands in metal -- Huntress. Loudwire and Noisecreep are teaming up with the bands to bring you a prize package featuring items from all four acts on the trek.
There's no doubt that Huntress have one of the coolest videos of the year in 'Zenith,' the Phil Mucci-directed clip that comes off like a black light poster come to life. Loudwire is teaming with Huntress to delve a little further into this creative clip by exclusively premiering the behind-the-scenes featurette from the video shoot.
Connecticut got rocked this past weekend as one of the summer’s biggest metal tours made a stop in Hartford. Fans kicked up some serious dirt while moshing outside in the lot of the Comcast Theater and rocking to the numerous band that graced the Jagermeister Stage.
If you're looking for a breakout band at the 2013 Mayhem Festival, Huntress certainly fit the profile. The group issued the buzz-generating 'Spell Eater' album last year. They just issued their sophomore set 'Starbound Beast,' featuring a new song co-written with Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, and they have everyone waiting in anticipation for the awesome looking 'Zenith' video after recently issuing a trailer for the upcoming clip.
