Lucifer’s Johanna Sadonis On “Lucifer III,” Danzig’s Influence & The 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic

Lucifer III is the new studio album by Lucifer, a Sweden-based hard rock group which celebrated massive international success with 2018’s much acclaimed Lucifer II. Uniting the songwriting talents of Johanna Sadonis and Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters, Entombed, Imperial State Electric), Lucifer III further perfects the band’s stunning mix of 70’s hard rock, tinges of doom, doses of classic heavy metal and addictive choruses resulting in powerful ballads. Lucifer has toured North America several times, supported The Hellacopters in Europe and performed plenty of large gatherings including Psycho Las Vegas, Sweden Rock, Metaldays, KISS Kruise, Desertfest, Hellfest and Muskelrock.

The third single from Lucifer III, “Leather Demon,” was released on March 13th. Meanwhile, Lucifer III itself hit stores around the world on March 20th. Not only is Lucifer III available digitally and as a CD, but it is also variety in numerous different colored vinyl formats, thanks to Century Media Records.
