Huntress was a metal band led by frontwoman Jill Janus. In a Songfacts interview
, she explained: "I often write on the first album about the tarot card. There are references to the Eight of Swords, which was really the way that we were discovered, so to speak. I asked the tarot cards to reveal one card that would become an epic metal song. The Eight of Swords chose us. After that, I just wrote the song with the boys."
