Meet Lucifer, a group that’s heating things up with a searing, ’70s-inspired blend of dark rock and boogie.
God may have given rock ’n’ roll to us all, but Satan made it interesting. From Black Sabbath to AC/DC and Judas Priest, rock ’n’ roll—or, more specifically, heavy metal—has long been connected with the dark imagery of the devil.
While most bands and artists just use the idea of evil to piss off parents and sell records to their kids, some take things to the extreme. (Google “Norwegian Black Metal.”) As for us, we prefer our metal slightly evil and featuring a porcelain-skinned, blond female singer. That’s why our favorite new Satan-inspired (and named) band is Lucifer. The mostly Swedish group plays a ’70s-inspired blend of dark rock and boogie, all led by German-born female singer Johanna Platow Andersson.
In advance of the band’s fourth CD—aptly titled Lucifer IV—we caught up with the singer to discuss sex, horror, bleached assholes and crucifixion.
