Debut Album Lucifer I – Available June 16th on Rise Above Records
There has been a ton of anticipation and excitement surrounding the band featuring Johanna Sadonis that rose from the ashes of The Oath.
The buzz surrounding LUCIFER continues to mount as they are featured on the July cover of Decibel Magazine. The issue is on newsstands now and can be ordered HERE.
Decibel Editor in Chief Albert Mudrian on featuring LUCIFER on the July cover of Decibel:
“This issue marks only the second time in our 11-year history that an artist has secured a Decibel cover story solely on the strength of a debut album; LUCIFER, the new group spearheaded by Johanna Sadonis (ex-vocalist of Decibel faves the Oath) and Gaz Jennings (ex-guitarist of two-time Decibel Hall of Famers Cathedral). Obviously, that pedigree should get your attention, but it’s the strength of the material on debut Lucifer I that justifies an in-depth exploration of a band that’s been together for approximately 12 months.”
Front woman Johanna Sadonis commented about being featured on the cover of Decibel Magazine:
“LUCIFER is honored to be granted the cover story of this month’s Decibel magazine! We are delighted beyond words to have achieved such a prestigious accolade so early in our career. Our thanks and hails go out Decibel for their amazing support and dedication to all things heavy!!”
The video for the track “Izrael” – directed by and Chris Koll and Sadonis – was shot partly at LUCIFER‘s first Berlin show in April. Check it out HERE.
In support of Lucifer I the band will play their first ever North American tour alongside High on Fire, Pallbearer, and Venomous Maximus. The tour begins July 30th in San Diego, CA and wraps up August 23rd in New Orleans, LA. A complete list of dates is below.
Following the premature demise of The Oath, Johanna Sadonis formed LUCIFER. Whilst The Oath was a much-celebrated band, she wasted no time in creating a new beast to go beyond previous limitations. That beast is LUCIFER and this is their stunning debut album titled Lucifer I.
Having released their debut single, “Anubis” earlier in 2015, there has been a significant buzz generating around LUCIFER. The anticipation for Lucifer I is high and it will not disappoint.
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 that instantly spring to mind upon first listen. LUCIFER‘sinstinctive take on the very soul of early heavy metal is the electrified essence of rock’n’roll at its nascent purest. This is Magic Rock – heartfelt and holistic.
