A Grave For Each One Of Us
2015, Lucifer is the band formed by former vocalist of The Oath, Johanna Sadonis. Following the mournful and premature demise of that much-celebrated band, she wasted no time in creating a new beast to go beyond previous limitations. With the addition of Garry Jennings (ex-Cathedral/Death Penalty) as co-songwriter and studio guitarist, Lucifer have moved forward into a realm of rock music which is very rare and very special in this time. Genuine, classic, heavy, studied and passionate are just a few words the instantly spring to mind upon first hearing. Lucifer's instinctive take on the very soul of early heavy metal is the electrified essence of rock'n'roll at its nascent purest. Eschewing the now well-worn cliches of the occult rock explosion in favour of a truthful and tempestuous re-imagining of classic 70s proto-metal and turbocharged blues, the eight songs on this band's debut album crackle and fizz with nascent energy and the compelling conviction of music made for all the right reasons.
