Lucifers Friend - Self Titled 1970

Formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1970. They were noted as early practitioners of heavy metal and progressive rock. They also threw some jazz in especially by their fourth album Banquet from 1974. As much as heavy metal, the band is also cited, too, as one of the pioneers of doom metal, helping to define both genres due to the heavy sound and dark lyrics of this album which is their debut.
The band went under the name Asterix from '68 to '70, and were active under the name Lucifer's Friend from 1970 till 1982. A must have for ANY metal fans. Period. This is a re-issue with 5 bonus tracks.
