Ten brand new tracks, no orchestra this time around, but it's hard to avoid thinking that in spite of "The Crown Of Creation", this is Lucifer Was again at their peak. Dead heavy, intricate arrangements and harmonies, high energy level and top notch songwriting. The lyrics are a thematic continuation from "Crown", though with some surprising realistic
twists, as bandleader and guitarist Thore Engen wrote the bulk of them during a three months stay at a rehab clinic. "DiesGrows" is a blast of energy, but still filled with elegance and flow. Jon Ruder delivers the songs with such gusto and feeling that his vocal performances on these ten songs may be his best ever. The guitars also scream and riff
heavier than ever. Einar Bruu's overdriven bass supplies a solid and brutal template, while Rune Engen's drumming once again proves that he's one of the best sticks man around in this genre. The blast of the Hammond organ and other keyboards embrace the pieces with power and subtlety. As the icing on top, Lucifer Was' trademark flutes are
featured throughout the whole trip. Original Lucifer Was flautist Anders Sevaldson guests as the second flute player. This strange band has again expanded their musical world and their "DiesGrows" has defined the term PowerProg! This is a unique album, something else, that we here at Transubstans Records are proud to present .
