Bio:

Berlin/London based heavy doom rock band, LUCIFER, have this week unleashed their highly anticipated debut album, Lucifer I, and confirmed their first ever London show.Front woman, Johanna Sadonis - formerly of The Oath - commented on the release:"It is with great pride that we present Lucifer I, our first album. Crafted between London and Berlin, we've given it our all. We are tremendously excited for Lucifer I to descend into the light of day now and have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response so far!"The band recently released their first single, Izrael. The track was written by Sadonis and ex-Cathedral guitarist, Gaz Jennings. The video for the track - directed by Sadonis and Chris Koll - was shot partly at LUCIFER's first Berlin show in April, and has notched up thousands of plays in its first few days online.Whilst The Oath was a much-celebrated band, following their premature demise, Sadonis wasted no time in creating a new beast to go beyond previous limitations. Having released their debut single, Anubis earlier this year, there has been a significant buzz generating around LUCIFER.Eschewing the now well-worn clichés of the ‘occult-rock explosion’ in favour of a truthful and tempestuous re-imagining of classic 70s proto-metal and heavy doom, the eight songs on this band’s debut album crackle and fizz with burgeoning energy and the compelling conviction of music made for all the right reasons.Although still firmly rooted in the fertile soil first cultivated by Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Blue Oyster Cult, LUCIFER exist in a proudly liberated and limitless sonic realm, where the heaviest doom rock is a mere starting point for the band’s skyward creative trajectory.LUCIFER have recently been announced to tour with High on Fire and Pallbearer in the United States, with more European shows planned for later in the year. The band have also landed the coveted cover of the current issue of American heavy metal bible, Decibel.

Album:

I loved The Oath’s self-titled release last year. So it was with a deep sense of shock and confusion that I heard they broke up shortly after its release. Why would a band, with so much talent on its side and great songs to play, call it quits so soon? From what I can tell from interviews, the specific reasons are deeply personal and not open to public discussion. And that’s fine. It would be nice if more post-breakup musicians could exercise some discretion.So in the shadow of 2014, what does Johanna Sedonis’ new band, Lucifer, bring us in 2015? I’ll admit that when I first saw the logo, I was kind of terrified. There’s a lot of boring counterculture-nostalgia out there in the world of doom-metal, and I worried that Sedonis was going to lean too hard on her admiration for 70s rock, thus leaving metal to a side role. Luckily for all of us, I was wrong.So wrong, in fact, that I found myself enjoying parts of this album more than last year’s release from The Oath. The riffs hit harder, the songwriting is better and more consistent, and there’s less of an obvious reliance on hard rock. In its place is a clear reverence for Candlemass and Ozzy-era Black Sabbath. It’s funny that I should write these words however, since Sedonis herself actually describes the opposite in a recent interview:I want it to be a different band and concept. The Oath had much more of a heavy metal, old school, doom, and hard rock influence with that NWOBHM influence very present. With Lucifer you won’t hear so much of the heavy metal side that The Oath had. It’s much more of a heavy rock sound than a metal sound.Perhaps I’m missing something. There is at least a more effective sense of rise and crash with Lucifer, one that creates a different atmosphere that The Oath and that feels significantly heavier. One thing that is very consistent of course is Johanna Sedonis’ excellent voice and use of melody, engaging the listener and leading him or her through each track.And it’s not just that her voice sounds good, that’s merely her birthright. But it has more to do with how she expresses each note, and the individual spirit she’s able to embody through her vocals. The doom vocalists in Candlemass, My Dying Bride and Electric Wizard stand out because they use their own sense of creativity to express themselves. This is what separates them from those who simply ape early-Ozzy or try to sound like some folksy “wizard/witch” or whatever. The same applies here, as Sedonis' vocal style is undeniably her own.But some words should be reserved for the rest of the band as well. Apparently the guitarist goes by the name of “The Wizard,” which is wonderfully fitting for the current popularity of “magical” and “occult” themes- though to his credit, he uses Marshall amps instead of the Orange ones you’d expect him to use. Anyway, The Wizard certainly does work some magic with the strings and is well-supported by the rhythm section of Dino Gollnick and Andrew Prestdige,So what we have in 2015 is a solid, satisfying heavy rock/doom metal release. There are moments where the atmosphere begins to drag on you, particularly once you get five or six songs in, but this may be up to how much you enjoy Lucifer’s nostalgic approach. Regardless, let’s hope this act is able to keep the magic flowing for more than one album this time.

Album:

Vocalist Johanna Sadonis has understandably been Lucifer’s main attraction from the get go, but I must admit that guitarist Gaz Jennings was my person of interest when first hearing about them. Cathedral’s 2013 disbandment certainly hurt and the Carnival Bizarre-lite approach of 2015’s Lucifer I was a nice way to fill that void. But with Jennings having since departed, there’s even more pressure for Lucifer’s second outing to carve out a less derivative path. Thankfully Lucifer II (Twocifer?) successfully lives up to the debut and then some.Much like Avatarium’s post-Edling direction, the band is more upfront about their 70s rock and psychedelic influences this time around. The debut’s driving tempos are almost completely phased out in favor of the upbeat garage rock rhythms of “California Son” and steadier mid-tempo fare like the bluesy “Before the Sun.” There’s also a touch of keyboard and the guitars boast a subtler but still ominous character that allows the vocals to take center stage and inject more attitude into the otherwise ethereal delivery.These shifts may result in a less aggressive sound overall, but there’s still plenty of doom on Lucifer II. The band’s take on “Dancing with Mr. D” may ironically be the best demonstration of the style as the Rolling Stones deep cut comes out like a lost Sabbath tune if you slow it down just right. Elsewhere, “Reaper on Your Heels” and “Eyes in the Sky” offer plenty of that hazy four on the floor magic(k) and “Faux Pharaoh” closes things out with the album’s most massive riff set.It’s a little funny how Lucifer went from a Cathedral spinoff to another fixture in the ever-growing occult doom movement, but you can’t complain when the band is so good at both sounds. Lucifer II is about even to I in quality songwriting and is just as breezy a listen, leaving the “winner” up to personal preference. The transition shouldn’t be too jarring for established listeners and fans of groups like Avatarium, Psychedelic Witchcraft, and Blood Ceremony are strongly encouraged to check this one out.

Album:

Formed in 2014, multinational heavy metal band Lucifer, consisting of Johanna Sadonis on vocals, Martin Nordin and Linus Björklund on guitars and Nicke Andersson on drums and bass, will release their new studio album ‘Lucifer III’ on March 20th 2020 via Century Media Records worldwide and by Trooper Entertainment in Japan.With their trademark blend of old-school heavy metal, rock influences and devilish grit, Lucifer return to excite the senses. Following up their excellent 2018 release, Lucifer II, the metallers aren’t changing the formula up much here but that doesn’t stop Lucifer III being a head-banger.Driven by dark, deliciously evil riffs and the sultry, yet commanding vocals of Johanna Sadonis. Lucifer aren’t a band you associate with high energy tracks but that’s we get with the catchy groove of Ghosts.Talking of catchiness… Midnight Phantom is Lucifer at their best and their downright coolest. A slower beat, the chorus riffs and drum pattern are phenomenal.With a title like Leather Demon, you could be excused for expecting something faster and wilder but that’s not how Lucifer do things. Instead, we get a mellow tune that sounds more like a serenade. That speed is present on the following self-titled track where the band give praise to the fallen angel. Before Pacific Blues and Coffin Fever put the moody and dark side of the band front and centre. An excellent bunch of tracks confirming that Lucifer III will be able to sit alongside previous releases proudly.It’s far from over yet though as the latter part of the album brings a ton of body-shaking moments. The likes of Flanked By Snakes and Stray Astray akin to being possessed if not by Lucifer, then one of his servants.The third offering from Lucifer then wraps up in melody driven style with the finale of Cemetery Eyes. A last, warm embrace that has just a hint of bloodlust in it.

Album:

The album opens on a really dank note, “Archangel of Death,” with drums and bass punching all around before the clever guitars come in to engage the listener until Johanna Sadonis‘ vocals arrive. The guitars make sure that the song never gets boring and the use of bass is absolutely fabulous – it’s deep, dark, dirty, and driving… many of the best D-words to describe this particular style of grungy music. They go right into the BLACK SABBATH sound with the wonderfully-named “Wild Hearses.” Sadonis impresses listeners immediately with her low tone, sucking us into the depths of that dirty bass and drumming. Sadonis is nigh seductive with her mysterious, deep sound. Also, props to these guys for always having some clever wordplay in their lyrics and song titles! “Crucifix (I Burn for You)” starts darkly before pepping up a little, though Sadonis is ever-present in her depth. This one has a truly catchy chorus, worthy of a single, so it came as no surprise that I found this track YouTube as well. Props to the fun solo as well.If you want to be swept away with a catchy rhythm in the first few seconds of a song, you’ll surely be drawn to “Bring Me His Head,” which has both a danceable and singalong-able chorus that smoothly transitions to and from rockin’ verses. “Mausoleum” is a high-mid-tempo groover, with gentle but prominent vocals. Some subtle organs in the back add texture, while the slick soloing on top of the strong rhythm is a definite highlight in this one, as well as the unexpected change to a lighter sound towards the end. “The Funeral Pyre,” on the other hand, is a very autumnal instrumental piece, which explains its short 1:44 playtime. The funky bass drives “Cold as a Tombstone” forward, as Sadonis makes sure that she keeps her hold on us from start to finish. Of note, when I spoke of the lack of interesting vocal melodies in Anette Olzon‘s new release, “Strong,” it was this sort of thing I’d love to see her try – Sadonis takes her voice all over the lyrics, from high to low, from vibrato to wavy, to smooth to gritty and back several times within a song. It’s never boring (and I bet Olzon has the skill to do it).“Louise” takes us in a cheekier direction, as Sadonis teases us and the bass moves around. While I love the way she sings the chorus, admittedly, I thought she was saying “new weed” and not “Louise,” which in a way felt more appropriate to this stoner-licious music. “Nightmare” starts on a frightfully ominous note, which well-suits its name. Was this album intentionally scheduled for release right before Halloween, because if so, they nailed the time-of-year for this release dead-on. It’s just so doomy and mysterious and will be perfect to put on during those chilly autumn afternoons.If ever a band makes sure the drummer and bassist aren’t forgotten, it’s LUCIFER. Case-in-point: “Orion.” The beginning of the penultimate song is punched forward by really fun musicianship from the rhythm section. Simple key notes haunt the entire song, giving a little eeriness to the background, while Sadonis soars around, riding the waves of the guitars. The feel is both rocking and easy to dance around to in a sludgy, stonery sort of way. The transition between “Orion” and “Phobos” is as smooth as can be. The latter works as a very strong closer to the album, with wailing guitar, driving bass, and such creative drumming. The faster tempo works to its advantage as the album’s finale, as Sadonis sings about “the heart of the mountain” and that dirty low end is sweetly mixed in with the soloing and vocals. The instrumentalists take their time to jam their way out, creating a truly strong end to a great sonic journey that will likely leave listeners wanting more.LUCIFER seem to be pure gold when it comes to laid-back stoner grooves. The intricacy of their playing overtop of the ever-changing rhythms keeps each song interesting, while the ever-exploratory musicians never give you a moment’s chance to get bored. If THE DOOBIE BROTHERS aren’t quite groovy enough these days to be the soundtrack to your zen trance, LUCIFER might be just what the sound doctor ordered. Surely, their BLACK SABBATH forefathers must be impressed.
