Lucifer's Fall are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult form of traditional doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Cursed & Damned" which was released by Nine Records.
A very dark and melodic 70's influenced doom metal sound starts off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and the vocals are done in a clean signing fashion and while the music is rooted in the past the production makes it sound more modern.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the songs more of a ritualistic feeling and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while the vocals also add in a small amount of aggressive screams and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses the music also starts having its fast moments while a couple of tracks also add in a brief use of acoustic guitars.
Lucifer's Fall creates another recording that remains true to the traditional style of doom metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, religion, Darkness and Doom themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Lucifer's Fall and if you are a fan of doom metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mother Superior" "Cursed Priestess" "Sacrifice" and "Homunculus". 8 out of 10.
