Stockholm based heavy rock megalith Lucifer have announced the release date of their magnificent new studio 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 from previous records into one monumental mass of electrifying heavy rock and roll.
And since All Hallows' Eve draws nigh, Lucifer have shared a thematically fitting video for new single, 'At The Mortuary', a most delightful treat with several tricks up its sleeve. Witness this Sabbathian mass in glorious black-and-white which revolves around all things that really matter - love, death and dancing in graveyards.

They have played over 200 shows in the Europe, Japan, North and 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.

Amongst others, they have graced the cover of 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, set to be released on January 26th 2024. Although Lucifer are known to notoriously deliver critically acclaimed albums, supreme songwriting and quality recordings, Lucifer V is rumoured to be their best album yet.
