Lucifer is back, and just in time for Halloween! The Stockholm-based band used the pandemic to record yet another album that rings in a new chapter and dives even further into the realms of grandiose and old fashioned rock, with a severe morbid twist. This time around they entered guitarist Linus Björklund’s Studio Ryssviken for an even more heart pounding drum sound, while continuing their work at The Honk Palace, drummer Nicke Andersson’s studio.
The band has expanded their songwriting partnership within the lineup: lead singer Johanna Sadonis has not only penned the new material with Nicke but also with guitarist Linus, as well as guitarist Martin Nordin contributing. With “Lucifer IV” the group is proving furthermore to be steadily building their very own pillar of rock history, brick by brick.
“Lucifer IV” is set to be released today, Halloween 2021 on Century Media Records/Sony Music. While not a concept album in itself, the album is designed for a fully immersive listen, with the lyrics telling tales of revenge, evil alliances, phobias and romance. Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf has been a fan of the band since their second album was released, and had the pleasure of catching up with Johanna and Nicke to discuss the new release.
