It is with crushed hearts that we announce that Jill Janus—frontwoman for the California heavy metal band Huntress—passed away on Tuesday, August 14.

Her musical career began in childhood.

Beyond her accomplishments in the music world and her advocacy for mental health issues, she was a beautiful pe ... Read more »

ROYAL TUSK has signed a worldwide deal with Entertainment One (eOne), with plans to release a brand new LP this fall. The band has released a track off that LP titled "Aftermath" today exclusively via LOUDWIRE.
