LUCIFERIAN LIGHT ORCHESTRA - New EP Out In December, Track Available For Streaming

Luciferian Light Orchestra are back after the short break and ready to present an EP which contains four songs. Entitled Black EP, the atmosphere of the songs vary very much, and it is an interesting combination of different styles and tunes, the first of which can be heard with the track "Where The Lilies Grow".
Luciferian Light Orchestra, if you still don't know, is a Swedish occult rock project/band formed by in 2014 by Christofer Johnsson the mastermind of symphonic metal masters Therion (who are in the meantime in studio recording their new album), performing songs that Johnsson has written over the years but he thought were too retro-sounding for Therion. In April 2015 the eponymous debut album was released by Christofer's own label Adulruna Records.
About the track "Where The Lilies Grow" Christofer had this to say: "The second song, that was never used, was instead planted like a dark seed in the ground, and now 21 years later, it has blossomed up to be enjoyed finally. Among diehard Therion fans that know the band history, this song has been refered to as "the lost Theli song", and it has been a constant fan request that the demo of this song be released as a bonus track or some special release. But it was only recorded as a simple 4-track porta-studio demo on an aging low-quality cassette with horrible sound, so it never felt like a good thing to do. So, when I gathered old, vintage-sounding songs for the debut album of Luciferian Light Orchestra, this was of course a natural choice of song to record. The old song didn't have any proper lyrics, so words offering tribute to the legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnsson - who said he sold his soul to the Devil in return for becoming the best blues guitarist in the world - was written and it got the title "Where The Lilies Grow". But the Devil works in mysterious ways, and the version recorded for the debut didn't fulfil my expectations of the song. And if the song had been waiting in the vaults for 20 years, it deserved to be re-recorded and sound like it was intended. And out of that, the idea for recording this EP came up."
The Black EP will be released on 9th December through Svart Records. Now, give a listen to "Where The Lilies Grow" in the player below. Link
