The music is heavy on the blues and doom with an execution as thick as a Louisiana swamp. It features a dreamy ‘70s vibe that reaches down to the production values. This is a re-invention of the classic sounds many of us grew up with.

The name Lucifer has always been captivating. Whether we’re talking about the devil himself or the ‘morning star’ planet Venus, the mysterious will always be an infatuation for mankind.

Now, we have a new infatuation. A band called Lucifer has been taking the planet by storm and it’s time you paid heed. Lucifer has international origins. Hailing from both Germany (Berlin) and England (London) the groups reach is starting to extend beyond. The music is heavy on the blues and doom with an execution as thick as a Louisiana swamp. It features a dreamy ‘70s vibe that reaches down to the production values. This is a re-invention of the classic sounds many of us grew up with.

Lucifer just released a new album (July 6th) via Century Media Records and I urge you to give it a listen. Although the triple guitar attack of: Robin Tidebrink, Martin Nordin and Linus Björklund is undoubtedly a feature of Lucifer, I feel the bass lines of Alexander Mayr are very underrated. The relationship between Mayr and drummer Nicke Anderson are what make this band work. The accomplished ebb and flow of the arrangements are dependent upon on this structure.

Every tone seems tuned to match the lucid voice of Johanna Sadonis, which gives the music a pointed feel. It’s as if every part of her delivery is moving in a single unified direction. Her witchy sex appeal is difficult not to acknowledge. Highlight tracks for me are: “California Son”, “Dreamer”, “Reaper On Your Heels”, “Eyes In The Sky”, “Aton” and “Faux Pharaoh”.

Let’s bring the ‘70s back. I urge you to close your eyes and re-live the past with the sounds of Lucifer! \m/
