LP version. Sommor Records present a reissue of Lucifer Was's debut album Underground And Beyond, originally released in 1997 as a picture disc LP. Killer hard psych-prog from Norway, Underground And Beyond from cult proto-metal band Lucifer Was, contains songs written in 1971-72, but not recorded until 1997. Established in 1970 in Oslo, Lucifer Was were a powerful psychedelic hard-rock/hard-prog band that lasted until 1975. During those years, they gigged locally and played at some big festivals but they never got the chance to register any recording. The band hibernated until 1996 when they reunited again for a live concert. The chemistry was still there so they entered a recording studio and recorded in just 18 hours their first ever album, Underground And Beyond, featuring songs written in 1971-72. Their line-up included two flute players plus bass, drums and the killer lead guitar of Thore Engen. Fully '70s analog -- a powerful sound with devastating distorted lead guitar and flute. Imagine a cross between Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, and Atomic Rooster. Remastered sound; includes color insert with liner notes by Klemen Breznikar (It's Psychedelic Baby) plus rare photos.
