Album

Lucifer's Friend is the first studio album by the hard rock band Lucifer's Friend, released in 1970. Lucifer's Friend would change directions multiple times on upcoming albums. However, the progressive and krautrock influenced proto-doom metal on this album lives up to the sinister cover. Ride in the Sky Hesslein, Lawton 2:55.

Natural Born MoverRemastered Live at Rockpalast Westfalenhalle, Dortmund, Germany 6th December, 1978. Lucifer's Friend was a 1970s German hard rock and progressive rock band who often incorporated elements of jazz and pop music. Despite the band's German origin and progressive rock stylings, they are not usually classified as krautrock. The British-born John Lawton Uriah Heep 1977- read more. The British-born John Lawton Uriah Heep 1977-1. Although they would develop a more prog-influenced style, this debut album finds Lucifer's Friend living up to their sinister name by performing heavy, keyboard-textured rock in the vein of Deep Purple or Uriah Heep. It gets off to a thunderous start with Ride the Sky, a punchy rocker built on a rumbling, guitar-fuelled melody reminiscent of The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin.

My gatefold copy has black and white labels. Not sure of this counts as textured, but the faces of the 2 men on the front are printed in a super high gloss ink and are both slightly raised from the sleeve's surface. The bloody drawings on the bottom of the back are printed in a similar way as well. Would this be the way this specific entry is, or do I have a unique pressing variant? I do know and have seen another version not listed here. It was a USA pressing in a non-gatefold sleeve and the record had Mercury Records labels. Any one else ever seen that one??
