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 on the band’s debut album “Luggage Falling Down” released this past April. The album 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 series of videos that the band has been releasing in support of the full length.
The band explains the song:
“Escape deals with the faith it takes to move out of a stagnant or unhealthy situation while still holding true to the values you identify with. In true ‘Luggage Falling Down’ fashion, this heavy subject is faced fearlessly and authentically with a groovy, upbeat charisma.”
For fans of Dream Theater, Incubus, and Haken, Lufeh is smooth and rhythmic progressive metal; heavy chords followed by light melodies and the occasional crazy guitar solo. Their debut full length “Luggage Falling Down” is available for stream and download on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music.
Lufeh shares their next video that showcases their high energy and knack for performing with the track “Escape”, which can be seen on YouTube below:
