Lucifer - _Lucifer_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3 out of 5)
This is the first demo tape from this American band who plays fast-paced death metal, showing some black metal influences as well. For this first demo, Lucifer used a drum machine (they don't have a drummer yet, but are planning to get one), but it didn't really bother me - I didn't notice it most of the time, anyway. As well as in need of a new drummer and an extra guitarist, these guys could very well use some improvement in what concerns the vocals - not necessarily a new vocalist, but a change of style is very recommended. Lucifer produce a reasonably thick wall of sound, but the riffs aren't really brilliant, even though the tempo changes are well done. The main problem is now that the 25 minutes plus of this demo are rather repetitive, they never really show too much besides what's apparent after the second track (first after the intro). This wouldn't have been all that bad if something weird hadn't happened: side B has a much worse production (and I mean -clearly- worse, even the stereo's balanced more towards the right), either because of a production fault or some problem with the dub they've sent us. One way or the other, this isn't a bad demo by any means, but it doesn't have anything really remarkable either and does suffer from a few faults.
