Citing Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Öyster Cult, Lucifer’s Friend, Steppenwolf, Heart and Fleetwood Mac as influences, “Lucifer II” offers a great balance between straight up “Heaven & Hell“-era rockers like ‘California Son‘, the beautiful ballad ‘Dreamer‘ and the thundering doom of album closer ‘Faux Pharaoh‘.

Apart from a new label home, the follow-up to 2015’s “Lucifer I” also marks the first studio release of the new LUCIFER incarnation now consisting of vocalist Johanna Sadonis, guitarist Robin Tidebrink, and multi-instrumentalist Nicke Andersson, who plays the drums and also took over bass and guitar when recording “Lucifer II“. The band’s live lineup also features Martin Nordin (DEAD LORD) on guitar and bass player Alexander Mayr.
“Lucifer II” was recorded at the Honk Palace in Stockholm. It was mixed by Ola Ersfjord (DEAD LORD, TRIBULATION, PRIMORDIAL) at Cuervo Recording Service in Madrid.
Sadonis comments: “We are beyond thrilled to roll our heavy rock tank to the monster fortress of Century Media. What better place to kick off the new chapter! This should go together like Buck Dharma and his moustache. Here’s to an unholy union!”
