Greek black metal outfit LUCIFER’S CHILD release new single “Viva Morte” in anticipation of their recently announced studio album “The Order”, due out November 9th via Agonia Records. “Viva Morte”, the first song to be released off “The Order”, is available for streaming below.
LUCIFER’S CHILD originates from Athens. Its music is a bridge to the world of atmospheric black metal, and a vessel for spiritual self-expression through lyrics. The goal of unifying these two elements gleamed clearly in the eyes of George Emmanuel, a prolific guitarist primarily known for his work as part of Rotting Christ (and a former guitarist of Chaostar), when he formed the band together with bassist Stathis Ridis (a member of another long-running Hellenic metal unit, Nightfall) in 2013. Born from a partnership between two talented musicians, the duo quickly expanded to take in vocalist Marios Dupont (Karma Violens) and drummer Nick Vell (Chaostar), and delivered their debut album, “The Wiccan”, in 2015. Encouraged by the album’s keen reception, followed by several festival appearences (incl. Inferno Festival, Blastfest and Incineration Festival), LUCIFER’S CHILD returns in a darker, more extreme shade, passionate in outperforming its bold debut.
“The Order” was recorded, mixed and mastered in Emmanuel‘s own recording studio, Pentagram. He commented: “After three years of converging and sculpting our ideas and sounds we are ready to present our second full length album entitled The Order. Lucifer awaits!”.
The new album features cover artwork by Daniele Valeriani (Dark Funeral, Dissection, Mayhem).
