We were in San Francisco on Monday night and braved the traffic to arrive early and catch all the bands featured on the Arch Enemy Tour which included killer sets from Kreator, Huntress and Starkill. I must say, I was most excited to see Huntress since I have never been able to see them live but have heard so many great things about them. Sure enough, as we were outside in line chatting with the fans so many told us how they were excited to see Huntress again.  They shared details about their favorite songs and their excitement poured out with every story. One thing in common with all of them, was that Huntress always put on a MUST SEE SHOW!

When Huntress hit the stage, I immediately understood everything the fans were talking about. They were absolutely amazing and put on one of the best solid sets in heavy metal out today. They have a very unique sound that blends early heavy metal with hints of seventies vibe and classic thrash that grabs a hold of you. If that isn’t enough, their top notch stage presence has you glued to their performance. Vocalist Jill Janus is not only a captivating beauty but is impressive at holding the crowd’s attention. She is mesmerizing and had the complete control over the crowd and she could have had them doing the Hokey Pokey if she wanted to!

Jill’s beautiful voice has a vocal range that takes you from metal mayhem to symphonic aura. In addition, the guitarists were fierce and had the crowd in a continuous head banging state all night. The band’s energy seemed non stop as they continued to invigorate the crowd to new levels. Quite an unbelievable set and Huntress was truly a highlight of the night. Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:
