Lucifer's Dungeon - The Dark Army Raises (The Dark Army Raises)
Lucifer's Dungeon was founded in 2008 by Cain Black in Thailand, where he lived from 2006 to 2010. Originally it was planned that it would be a one man band called Dark Cellar. In 2009, a demo was recorded, but it was lost. In 2010, after returning to Russia, Cain Black continued to write music and lyrics and later in 2014, he recruited Cerberus (drums) and Iscariot (concert bass player) from the group First Martyr. The band has played a couple of concerts in between 2014 to 2017.
Debut album, "The Dark Army Raises", was recorded on February 03, 2017. At the end of February 2017, Cerberus left the project due to his health, and Iscariot switched to solo guitar (concerts). Goth Ghost switched to bass, Denis Goncharov (Gromm) became the drummer.
The debut album is devoted to personal moments of life, as well as to the world and society. Some texts use many metaphors and personifications, but everything is cleared in plain text. "The Dark Army Raises" consists of both full ambient music and classic black metal tracks, in some songs these two genres are combined. The album was written between 2008 and 2014.
Testimony from the band:
"The Dark Army Raises is a song about destroying the earth. The first verse there is simply described by cataclysms. 2nd about the fact that while people are tormented like in the Christian hell. And the 3rd that all that above is a sign of the arrival of a dark army for the destruction of "slaves" that was predicted in myths. The point is that people themselves kill nature and it avenges people in return."
