Huntress / theNAME - Heavy Metal is the law and Jill Janus and her men show how!
Thursday night is the perfect start to take an advance on the weekend. The best way to do that is with a Heavy Metal show. Huntress with extravert vocalist and witch Jill Janus on front knows how to play a piece of metal that's driving from traditional metal towards melodic death metal and all in between.

Because of misinterpretation of the starting time of support act theNAME Metalrage missed their gig completely. So we can't say anything about this female fronted metal band that also has typical breakdown influences from a metalcore band.

Up next is Huntress that just did two weeks of touring with Lamb of God and Decapitated in Europe. Last minute they planned two extra shows in the Netherlands and this is the first. Four men on drums and guitars enter the stage with a typical Heavy Metal introduction. On high heels Jill Janus is coming on front to directly take all the attention with her looks and superb voice raging between old school Heavy Metal singing, screams and demonic witch shrieks. She does everything with power and conviction.

With songs like 'Spell Eater', 'Zenith', 'Eight of Swords' and 'I want to fuck you to Death' (lyrics written by Lemmy Motörhead) Huntress has a bunch of songs to impress the crowd. The guitar men's stage performance is too timid for a Heavy Metal band that has a front woman with balls. The musicians too much look on their instruments while they better could search for contact with the crowd. The music has enough catchy moments to kill and stride with the crowd.

They end the set with 'Let the witches in'. Unfortunately the drummer makes a mistake in the upbeat roll before the killer part starts. Too bad because it misses some energy now. After less than an hour the show is over. No encore (I was hoping they would do 'Running Wild' from Judas Priest) and around 22.20 everyone could go home. This Christian time is not very Heavy Metal isn't?
