    Lucifer’s Child – The Wiccan - 90%

Three things are all you need in order to get an idea of whether The Wiccan is an album for you or not:

1: It is Black Metal with a traditional Greek twist, not unlike Rotting Christ. 2: The entire album is written around and about the atmosphere of a satanic summoning. 3: It is pretty damn good.

For those of you who might want to know a bit more about what you might be buying (and to be honest, I cannot blame you for that), I can tell you that Lucifer’s Child is a dream band of sorts, made up of musicians from such high-profiled acts as Rotting Christ (as mentioned before), Chaostar and Nightfall. Since my primary focus among those three have been Rotting Christ, that is the band that I can most easily compare this one to. And generally, the two are very similar; most likely due to the heavy amount of inspiration and experience drawn in from its former members. Nevertheless, they manage to take the atmosphere a bit deeper that any of Lucifer’s Child’s predecessors, probably since they decided to turn it into a concept album built around something as short and intense as a summoning ritual. All in all (for me at least) it boils down to my original three statements, which in turn can be boiled down to just one: A Greek Black Metal concept album that has all the hallmarks of a great band. Not to mention that the four Greeks have already promised to go on tour in order to promote the album, which means that I will probably be seeing a bunch of you somewhere out there, at some venue or festival later this year.

But, as a teaser, please enjoy the music video for the bands first single, aptly entitled ”Lucifer’s Child”.
