Lucifer - Lucifer I
When the sun sets and the moon reaches through the trees, creating a never-ending labyrinth of shadows, nightmares are born. Lucifer will reach into your mind to conjure up your deepest darkest fears. Paralyzed you watch helplessly as your body is dragged from your home and into the forest. Dark figures dressed in robes carry you silently into the night. As you reach a small clearing you see an angelic face looking down upon you, illuminated by candle light. With a smile and a gentle caress she touches your cheek and for a moment you feel like everything will be alright. But then, the ritual begins.
The debut L.P. by Lucifer is a twisting, turning cobweb covered staircase into the places in your mind you dare not go. Haunting yet beautiful. Heavy but still sophisticated, Lucifer I manages to blend the vibe of the early pioneers of heavy metal with an 80s kind of switchblade wilding street tough attitude.
Heavy riffs with very melodic vocals create quite a pleasurable experience for the listener. the 8 song album will keep you on the edge of your seat while the infectious grooves and heavy riffs will keep your toes tapping and your head banging.
I would recommend anyone who is into early 70s or 80s heavy music give this record a spin. Fans of Black Sabbath, Pagan Altar, Lucifers Friend, Pentagram and Coven will definitely enjoy Lucifer 1.
