"As Evil As Me" (Self-produced; 2005)
Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter
“As Evil As Me” is a three song EP that re-introduces Lucifixion to the metal world. Originally conceived in the early ‘90s, Lucifixion have been under the radar for nearly a decade since their debut full-length CD “Indulge In The Macabre.”
“As Evil As Me” showcases Lucifixion as a band that remains rooted in classic death metal elements while incorporating modern sounds and styles (female vocals, progressive elements, deeper harsh vocals and near epic song-lengths). Lucifixion view “As Evil As Me” as evidence of their evolution; without ever having heard the band’s debut it’s safe to say that nearly a decade will introduce numerous new elements to a band’s approach.
The three tracks on “As Evil As Me” aren’t radically earth-shattering, but do indicate that the band has settled on a style and direction with wide appeal. Often, independent acts get the freedom to mix and match influences to their collective heart’s content. “Saga” and “Death’s Design,” in particular, demonstrate that Lucifixion are putting their individual stamp on quality, evolutionary death metal.
Lucifixion plan on releasing their second full-length album in the near future.
“As Evil As Me” was produced by Lucifixion with James Meeker.
Lucifixion: Jeremiah Riley on vocals and drums, Maria “Angel” Seeburger on vocals, Andy Hamlet on lead guitar and acoustic guitar, Austin Waidelich on rhythm and acoustic guitar, and Lawrence A. Ray on bass.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
