Lucifer For President are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of black'n'roll, thrash metal, and horror punk and this is a review of their 2021 album "Asylum" which was released by My Kingdom Music.
Spoken word parts start off the album before going into a heavier horror punk direction which also captures the heaviness of thrash metal. Vocals are a mixture of clear singing and shouts along with the music also mixing in elements of black'n'roll and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks and also adds in more of a classic rock vibe while the solos and leads also bring in more of an old school style. Death metal growls and black metal screams can also be heard at times along with some evil sounding whispers and the riffs also add in some dark sounding melodies.
At times the music also gets very ritualistic sounding along with the songs also mixing in a decent amount of 80's influences but keeping it modern at the same time as well as the band also bringing in some CCCP and Misfits covers, synths can also be heard briefly and all of the album sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Occultism, Suicide, Sex, Drugs and Rock'N'Roll themes.
In my opinion Lucifer For President are a very great sounding mixture of black'n'roll, thrash metal and horror punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan Saves" "I've Got Two Friends" "Exorcism" and "The Kiss Of the Witch/Planet Lucifer". 8 out of 10.
