Luciferion was a death metal band founded in early 1993 by Mikael Nicklasson, Peter Weiner and Wojtek Lisicki. They were joined shortly after by Martin Furängen.
The band was influenced by Morbid Angel, Deicide, Celtic Frost, Forbidden, Coroner, Immolation, and other heavy metal bands of the 1980s.
Luciferion made their first recording, a five-song promo, in 1993. The promo led to an immediate record deal with Listenable Records, in France. Listenable Records was the only company to receive the promo, which they released under the title, "The Demon of 1994."
