Acclaimed multinational heavy rock band LUCIFER is proud to announce that he has joined the ranks of NUCLEAR EXPLOSION RECORDS.

They have played approximately 200 shows in the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe including the KISS Kruise, Psycho Las Vegas, Hellfest, MetalDays, Sweden Rock and Desertfest and two of their shows have been recorded and broadcast by the well-established German national television. Rockpalast program.
LUCIFER were twice nominated for a Swedish Grammy in the ‘Best Hardrock/Metal Album‘ category and graced the cover of American metal magazine, Decibel.
Johanna Platow Andersson comments: “We in LUCIFER are very excited to roll up our sleeves and begin the next chapter of the band. Growing up as a metal kid since the early 90s, Nuclear Blast has always been a staple of the music I love. We are pleased LUCIFER and Nuclear explosion now join forces to release our version of Heavy Rock to the world and hopefully straight into the hearts of those who love old-school, heartfelt, and very morbid rock and roll!
jens pruterA&R manager Nuclear explosion Europe adds:“It is a pleasure to welcome LUCIFER at Nuclear Explosion Records. We’ve met several times already and it’s great to see the band grow from an underground doom scene to greater strength in hard rock – like an unholy marriage of FLEETWOOD Mac and BLACK SABBATH aiming to “devastate your soul” and set “cities on fire with Rock and Roll”. Thanks, LUCIFER!”
LUCIFER are currently working on their fifth album, “V”, the first to be released on their new label, Nuclear explosion.
