The Lucifer Principle

-The Ignition-
The Lucifer Principle started out at the end of 2004, within 8 months, the band released two well received demo’s (“Burn!” & “Flamethrower”). The Lucifer Principle makes a difference to al other deathmetal bands by using a stand up bass instead of a electric bass, the stand up bass underlines the groovy character of the songs. The music of TLP is best described by the term “Stomping Deathmetal”, a mixture between old school heavy metal, rock ‘n roll and groove, all connected by a firm and edgy death metal base.

-What’s in a name-
The Lucifer Principle finds a great source of inspiration in a book (The Lucifer Principle), written by Howard Bloom. This book describes the origin of human nature, where violence and “evil” are the basic ingredients in ones being.
We have been brought up with the thought that violence doesn’t solve anything, history however, proofs that violence solves al great deal of problems. The greatest civilisations (including their problems) have fallen victim to violence and disappeared to make place for a new way of thinking. The Lucifer Principle stands also for the avalanche-effect, or action = reaction, something TLP practices when playing live.

-The Fire-
Besides a tour with Entombed, TLP has played with a wide variety of bands (like: Obituary, Devildriver, Napalm Death, Dew-Scented, Blood Red Throne and for example Holy Moses),. In a very short period of time, The Lucifer Principle achieved a very good live reputation, where energy and interaction are the main ingredients. It’s a matter of Action = Reaction!
