CD Review: Lucifer's Friend Return With New Live Album

German hard rock band Lucifer's Friend exploded onto the music scene in the seventies with a progressive sound that have influenced many of today's heavy metal bands. After disbanding in 1982, the members of the band have regrouped only once for the 1994 album "Sumo Grip." Their latest release is a live album that covers their show at the Sweden Rock Festival last year. This was the first time that the band performed together in over twenty years as they remind fans of how good this band was in their heyday. 
The new twelve-song release begins with the thunderous praise during the introduction, which leads into the up-tempo rocker "Pray." Lucifer's Friend continue to electrify the audience with classic cuts like "Fire And Rain" and "Keep Going." They showcase their progressive rock side with the seven-plus minute "Riding High" and also keep that hard rock edge to songs like "Moonshine Rider" and "Ride The Sky." The album closes with the seventies rocker "High Flying Lady" that has Lucifer's Friend reaching the same heights as long-time classic bands like Styx and Kansas.
