Heavy rockers LUCIFER performed acoustic versions of the songs "Dreamer" and "Phoenix" on October 9 at Black Plastic Records in Dortmund, Germany. Video footage of their appearance can be seen below (filmed and edited by Dirk Behlau).
"Dreamer" and "Phoenix" are both taken from LUCIFER's new album, "Lucifer II", which was released in July via Century Media Records.
Commented singer Johanna Sadonis: "A few months ago we had the honor to play an intimate acoustic set at Dortmund's notorious Black Plastic Records. Face to face and up close to our audience. It was a special evening and we are glad Dirk Behlau captured the moment with his camera. It was the calm before a wild DJ set of Nicke and me. We were dancing till the wee hours among the vinyl shelves with those who attended. Good times!
"We are now itching to hit the northern roads next week to embark on a series of Scandinavian shows! Lock your children! LUCIFER is coming!"
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 Sadonis, guitarist Robin Tidebrink, and multi-instrumentalist Nicke Andersson, who plays 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.
Originally, LUCIFER formed in Berlin back in 2014 consisting of Sadonis and members of CATHEDRAL, ANGEL WITCH and LADYTRON. The first seven-inch single, "Anubis", and debut album, "Lucifer I", were released by British label Rise Above Records, quickly establishing the group as a promising new act offering excellent 1970s hard rock with a good dose of proto metal and doom added to the mix. Citing BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, LUCIFER'S FRIEND, STEPPENWOLF, 70's HEART and FLEETWOOD MAC as inspiration, LUCIFER corrupted the souls of many and achieved international recognition on tours through Europe, USA, Canada and Japan.
