Sophisticated, progressive, and refined, Los Angeles based progressive metallers Lufeh (a band of both Brazilian and American musicians) creates an enjoyable experience, meandering through jazz styles, heavy metal foundations, and rhythmic Brazilian influences. The mind expanded sonic journey is something new and interesting to listen to.
Released in April of 2020, “Luggage Falling Down” was a trying, yet successful first recording for these recently banded musicians who lived together for two weeks throughout the process. Having lost the original singer a month before recording began, the intrepid bunch found hope with Dennis Atlas who fell in step with the rest of the band immediately. This bond between the members can be seen in their videos along with their high energy and knack for performing.
“Luggage Falling Down” is a unique melodic story that continues to be demonstrated with their next video for the track “My World”. Drummer Lufeh Batera shares his thoughts on the track:
“‘My World’ offers a different side of the Lufeh / Luggage Falling Down sound. It’s almost a power ballad but with the rollercoaster twist and turns of a Prog Metal band. The song features a Phrygian dominant chord structure, a bulbul tarang solo, a shredding guitar solo, a funk break down, and lyrics that focus heavily on doing the right thing. The song could be described as ‘if a 20-minute Prog epic could take place over the course of a standard 4.5-minute rock song’.”
