Although Lucifer's Friend played a lot of musical styles during their career including hard rock, soul, funk rock, jazz fusion, AOR and progressive rock, they also ventured into early heavy metal on their 1970 self-titled debut.

Originally the band was called Asterix and released a self-titled psychedelic-oriented album in 1970, but the name was soon changed to Lucifer's Friend.
