DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated sxith album of
Germany’s LUCIFUGE, Hexensabbat, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Since 2016, LUCIFUGE have been steadily perfect an addicting style of blackened speed
metalpunk, all guided by the iron fist of mainman Equinox. Come 2021’s fourth full-length
Infernal Power, Equinox expanded LUCIFUGE to a full lineup, and it paid off in spades: the
band’s first album under the banner of DYING VICTIMS capped this signature sound with
power and aplomb, exuding a new professionalism that somehow sounded dirtier than ever.
However, it was 2023’s Monoliths of Wrath where LUCIFUGE further spit-shined their sound
and took it in a newer but no-less-parallel direction: classic, ripping-FAST thrash of ‘80s gods
Sodom, Kreator, Exodus, and of course Slayer. Thankfully, LUCIFUGE keep that sonic shift
going with their sixth full-length, Hexensabbat. Ditching more its predecessor’s complex
song structures, Hexensabbat heaves toward the gates of Hell with a greasy gallop that
brings back a bit of the black while honoring the nether-realms of still-stuck-in-the-‘80s
thrash and speed metal. True, those aforementioned gods still hold a place in LUCIFUGE’s
current sound, but more so can one detect the likes of Exciter, Razor, Iron Angel, and even
later ‘80s Gang Green, the Exploited, and Crumbsuckers. Put another way, if Monoliths of
Wrath was spiritually akin to a Combat Records release, then Hexensabbat would definitely
come out on Combat Core, so straightforward and rancorous is its all-pistons-pumping
surge. Plus, more than a bit of LUCIFUGE’s old-school grit is back in full force, which makes
the album’s slightly melodic-yet-malevolent riffing sound majestic – and, most importantly,
not render Hexensabbat a total retro retread.
Leaner, meaner, and keeping the 1987 faith alive, LUCIFUGE command you to honor the
