Lucifer Releases “Ghosts” From Upcoming Lucifer III

Like most of the death metal crowd, Nicke Andersson reverted to his hard rock and 70s stadium rock roots after participating on a few classic death metal releases. Once you have said the vital portion of your worldview in musical form, you are forced to articulate it, which is less fun than the unformed but emerging image.

In other words, “nothing gold can stay.” Moving on, like Quentin Tarrantino, Andersson found a fecund field in the chaotic hybrid of 1970s music which mixed many threads of culture into a kind of desperate end-of-the-world bravery that was still designed to fit into a mainstream, albeit a broader one.

His newest project, Lucifer, fills out that 70s sound with modern and intermediate influences ranging from Danzig through mid-70s progressive rock, but distills it to the same kind of technical but listenable rock that rang from the rafter on Radio Shack speakers throughout the 1970s.

“Ghosts,” the most recent release from the upcoming LP Lucifer III, shows the influence of melodic hard rock and even the disco-influenced upbeat sounds of the 1970s under a melodic vocal which ties it together with an epic chorus. If you wish Styx, Slade, Kiss, and Foreigner were still releasing albums, this might satisfy the hope.

Lucifer III will see release on March 20th via Century Media Records.

    Are there any good bands fronted by women?

    Curved Air comes to mind. That’s it.

    1. Probably, but I seem not to care, at least where metal is involved. It is a genre that affirms masculine attributes like aggression, realism, reductionism, structure, violence, and order. This ultimately is fulfilled only in man-on-man sexual contact.

        “man-on-man sexual contact”

        I am glad you have cum to your senses brother Brettus.

        God created homosexuality and sodomy to keep the population in check after all. Silly humans are always trying to go against God in their mindless doings. Faggots are the true Gods chosen.

    “like Quentin Tarrantino, Andersson found a fecund field in the chaotic hybrid of 1970s music”

    Does that also manifest itself as foot fetishism and cuckoldry?

    1. such says:

      weak mindedness

    2. Children cannot legally consent, which means that they can also not legally deny, which means that all children are consenting by nature, like sheep, watermelons, and girls from Barnard. This means that if you as a parent are negligent in the display and storage of your children, they are going to fill up with dicks and pop in a detonation of pus, blood, feces, semen, bone, and random rocketing eyeballs.

        never represent yourself in court. even if you are jewish.
