Lucifer release video for new single ‘Slow Dance In A Crypt’

, ,

Heavy rock megalith LUCIFER have released a new single called ‘Slow Dance In A Crypt’. The song is another precursor to the new album, LUCIFER V, which is due out on January 26th, 2024, on Nuclear Blast Records. Consisting of nine unholy hymns, LUCIFER‘s fifth offering can easily be regarded as their magnum opus and sees the band channeling all their strengths known from previous records into one monumental mass of electrifying heavy rock and roll.

Slow Dance In A Crypt‘ shows a quieter side of LUCIFER while still allowing distorted guitars to soar during its anthemic chorus. Sounding very much like LUCIFER, the song is also a testament to the bands’ penchant for 60s rock and pop music.The corresponding music video by Chris Shonting is a thematic sequel to the last one, ‘At The Mortuary‘, and continues its morbid story line about everlasting love that transcends death, all shot in the style of late 60s George A. Romero.


Furthermore, LUCIFER are pleased to announce a few more dates for their THE SATANIC PANIC EUROPEAN TOUR 2024, the first leg of which they will be co-headlining with NWOBHM legends, ANGEL WITCH. On the second leg they will be joined by German blackened heavy metal band ATTIC. Rising stars THE NIGHT ETERNAL from Germany will be the support on all dates.

Since its inception in 2014 In Berlin, the highly prolific band led by charismatic singer Johanna Platow Andersson has released four electrifying albums on Rise Above (LUCIFER I) and Century Media Records (LUCIFER II-IV), as well as and numerous stand-alone singles infused with 1970s hard rock, proto heavy metal, doom and occult rock, with a nod to their main influences such as Black SabbathPentagram Blue Öyster Cult. They have played over 200 shows in the Europe, Japan, North & South America, including festivals such as KISS Kruise, Psycho Las Vegas, Hellfest, Wacken and many more, most recently supporting the band GHOST on their European tour in spring 2023. Two of their shows have been recorded and broadcasted by prestigious German national TV program Rockpalast.

LUCIFER, now located in Stockholm, have been nominated twice for a Swedish Grammy in the category ‘Best Hardrock/Metal Album’ as well as the Swedish Radio Award P3 and several GAFFA nominations. Amongst others, they have graced the cover of the leading US metal magazine, Decibel, before their first album was released.

The group has concluded recording their fifth studio album, LUCIFER V, the first one to be released by their new label, Nuclear Blast Records, due out on January 26th 2024. Although LUCIFER is known to notoriously deliver critically acclaimed albums, supreme songwriting and quality recordings, LUCIFER V is rumored to be their best album yet. Combining elements of all their previous albums into one monumental mass of electrifying heavy rock and roll. Eerie landscapes shaped by soaring guitar riffs, the thunderous pounding of bass and drums from some sort of groovy inferno, haunted melodies to weep into your drink to, the screeching tires of a 1971 Cadillac hearse, the humorous morbidity and tragic wit of Johanna’s lyrics. If death had a best friend, it would be LUCIFER and they would hang out together at the local cemetery, shooting the shit. In November 2023, LUCIFER embarked on a full North American co-Headline tour with occult rock legends, Coven.  Catch LUCIFER live in February 2024 when LUCIFER brings The Satanic Panic Tour to Europe together with Angel Witch and guests Attic and The Night Eternal.
