Doom Metal’s Next Big Thing?

Lucifer‘s debut album Lucifer I is a must-hear, and you’ll be the first to find out why. Frontwoman Johanna Sadonis has emerged from the ruins of acclaimed occult duo the Oath — with the help of Cathedral axemaster Gaz Jennings — to make the doom debut of the year. We let Sadonis tell her own story, surviving communist Germany as a child and traveling the world to perfect her craft as one of the most evocative vocalists in the genre.

The July issue also features a long-gestating Fear Factory Hall of Fame, a review of Refused’s hotly-anticipated follow-up to The Shape of Punk to Come, and an exclusive Pentagram flexi, a 1971 rehearsal of “Bang It Out.” Great advice! Pick up the July Decibel now!
