Metalucifer was formed in 1995 in Kuwana (Japan), as a project of Gezol (here as Gezolucifer also frontman of the legendary band Sabbat). Metalucifers music very traditional and very emotional heavy metal inspired by Nwobhm and 80s euro metal in general. The band name was taken from the Sabbat track ‘Metalucifer And Evilucifer’ (from ‘Evoke’), and the meaning is ‘King In Heavy Metal Hell’. Metalucifers band mascot that appears on most Metalucifer covers are Neal Tanaka one of the worlds most famous heavy metal collectors. Their first release came in 1996 with the 6-track mini album ‘Heavy Metal Hunter’ and the band released their first full length album ‘Heavy Metal Drill’ the same year. This album are a testament both to its brilliance and its timelessness. Although not original by any standard, the quality of the music which this Japanses trio, which features current and former members of Sabbat, pen is of such compelling quality that any similarities to classic, pioneering bands such as Iron Maiden, Manowar or Helloween are instantly forgiven. With song titles and lyrics as firmly focused on pure metal as the riffs and drums are, the first three songs all start with ‘Heavy Metal’ and the seventh is simply entitled ‘Headbanging’, this becomes a 50 minute journey into the melodic, distortion filled world of classic heavy metal — and what a journey it is. Solos are what axemen’s dreams and egos are made out of, vocals are as infectious as they are balls out, and quite simply every feature of a great, classic, heavy metal album is present. The band even successfully toy with keyboards on their ‘Metalucifer’ instrumental track. When the old boys can no longer match themselves, it is up to others to remind them of the greatness of heavy metal.
