Review: Huntress – Spell Eater

Huntress Spell Eater album cover

Boob metal.

Huntress basically gets way more written about them than they should, including this post, because of how their frontwoman looks. She looks like this:

Jill Janus Huntress

And this is important to the point where I’m talking about it now before I talk about any of her music. Her looks basically dominate any conversation about the band, and who am I to buck the trend.

Here is what I will say about Huntress’ music: You should probably like it. That is if you’re the kind of person that really enjoys Iron Maiden, or any of the new school metal running the gamut of earnestly genre referential that runs between straight up “originals that sound like covers” a la Christian Mistress to the gleefully over the top style metal of 3 Inches of Blood. Just as sound-sans-tits, you should all love this, because that’s what it is. It’s like rawk-metal. It’s got a lot of King Diamond-esque histrionics,  being both hilarious and awesome at the same time. (I won’t front like King Diamond is awesome because of how menacing and evil he is, he’s awesome because he’s ridiculous.) That’s the kind of thing it is. It’s Heavy Metal. Camaro Metal. Dirtbag Metal. Whatever we wanna call it, or we can call it boob metal, because of the above.

Jill Janus, or Tuesdae or whatever she is calling herself is professionally hot. She’s decided to roll her looks out as her main marketing platform, rather than Huntress’ music. I don’t really have a definitive thing to say about that. I am only a mid level white liberal. Despite going to college and stuff, I don’t claim to understand feminist theory at all. In the course of hanging out on the Twitter, I’ve heard it said that an artist’s looks should never be brought up in discussion of their music. That seems like it only applied to dudes being judgmental about a woman’s looks when they didn’t find them appealing. I’ve also heard it opined that basically if Jill or someone like her does this kinda thing, it lowers the general standing of all women as musicians everywhere. I’ve also heard “we’re gonna use what we got to get what we want.”

Basically I think everyone who wanted to make a ‘this should be about the music’ argument missed the boat by talking about this lady’s rack, whether she’s a poseur or not, and not like the band’s music, which is pretty much ok if you’re into this sort of thing.

Friday

The Batillus/Hallowed Butchery split 12″ is up for preorder on Bis Auf Messer Records. First 100 get brown vinyl, limited to 500.

The Thou/Human Intruder split 7″ is available for preorder on Dead Earth Records.

Buddyhead mentioned this on Twitter yesterday: The Vandals are being sued by Variety because of a logo parody. I am really surprised at Buddyhead, because I am pretty sure I remember them hating the Vandals and all nu punk. I also have not cared on a similar level. This is just wrong though.

I got my Isis/Melvins split. I used to religiously collect every single thing the Melvins did. I probably have more of their albums than any other band. I’m the worst kind of fan though, I like the stuff from the Atlantic years the best. I honestly stopped caring right around the time they merged with Big Business.

I still do not have a Get Busy Committee record or a answer to my question about when that’ll happen.

The longer you read music blogs, the more likely you will hear your favorite music run down. You’ll also hear stuff you think of as total garbage held up in high regard. Blogging is an exercise in ego to an extent. I think we at least try to tell you the why of our opinions on music. We’re in the opinion business, not the decision business. That’s up to you.

To aid in the process, I will be comparing all new releases and reviews to Dismember’s Massive Killing Capacity. Massive Killing Comparison. (Thanks Pat!)

I still have almost zero love for hair metal, just Vixen and Twisted Sister.

Angela over at Reign in Blonde had written good articles about female sexuality in the world of music. Having watched In this Moment’s video for the “The Gun Show” yesterday, I would like to request that the agonizing pretense that is In This Moment be dismissed and Maria Brink just get naked already. The Venn Diagram of ITM  fans is 15 year olds, dudes that think Hellyeah is pretty good and dudes who like tits. The overlap section is just labeled “tits.” No one would complain.

That song Serj wrote about borders is dumb.

I don’t relate to hardcore music.

Have a nice Friday,

Friday/Spring/Reacting to things on other blogs.

It’s springtime! Which means I trade not wanting to do anything because the grim, icy grip of winter has crushed my soul for not wanting to do anything because it’s nice and balmy and the beer in the cooler on my back porch will not drink itself (I tested).

The official song of this spring, and every spring since 1995 is:

Actually the whole ROIR Sessions album is the album of spring. I got that back as a teenager, and somehow it’s always been just the right thing for this time of year.


I read about Huntress on Invisible Oranges yesterday. The look at the band from a credibility standpoint. The band is credible, the singer is professionally sexy, and therefore not. From the standpoint of a dude sitting in a chair, I like it. It’s Maidenesque. My ears approve of the sound. My wiener approves of Tuesdae. Real talk, the ears matter more, but still…

I’m shallow, what do want from me?


Usually on Friday I do Who wants to be my friend? Only one this week, but it’s all good.

Otto Vanderhymes.
Hip-Hop/Soul/Experimental

Otto has good flow, and has kind of a mid-90s vibe going on. It reminds me of some back in the day shit. Old people like that. I’m feeling this. There is not much more to say. Do you like good hip-hop, click on the link then.

Friend: Yes
Buy: Yes


Lair of the Minotaur have a new album coming out soon. I have listened to War Metal Battle Master about a hojillion times. They have a video for Evil Power up. It is so evil that it was banned from YouTube. Like their last one, it is full of gore and tits and (to me anyway) unintentional hilarity. You can view this piece over at Metal Injection. If you view it at work, you will be fired instantly.

YouTube Actually let them keep the War Metal Battle Master video up though. Honestly I like both the video and the song better than Evil Power, but not a ton better. This is also filled with gore, nudity and hilarious dismemberment.

Very NSFW. Do not click play. You will be fired instantly if you click play at work..


I have 5 tapes from Earjerk Records that I have yet to listen to. I am waiting for this thing to come out, rather than set up my old stereo again. I do not want to delay saying what a great guy label owner Tony is. My original order got lost in the mail somehow. I hope whoever got it likes ambient drone. Tony sent me the tapes I ordered for free. I find that especially awesome from such a small label. Thanks a lot, Tony!
