LUCTUS is a Lithuanian black metal band. The sound of LUCTUS can be described as fast and aggressive black metal with some death/thrash influences. LUCTUS main lyrical themes are as follows: negative emotions, war, nowadays decadence. Started by Kommander L. in 2001 as one-man band, LUCTUS has so far released two albums. The first demo tape "My Sorrow In The Lifeless Landscapes", released in 2002, was rather amateur, recorded only with an acoustic guitar and this tape didn't reach the metalheads of the underground.
