Lucifer Fulci is an undead ambassador to horror. He lives, breathes and dreams this beloved genre of morbid media and has done so since the dawn of time. From his works as a writer for Ultra Violent Magazine, Blood Feast Inc. and others, to his own fiction and informational books of blood, ( including but not limited to the “Siki City,” series, “ The “Collection of Horror” series and “Chunkblowers that Splattered the World” ) Lucifer writes with a rabid lust for the dark and supernatural. His musical works stem back to the death rock dark ages with his horror band Penis Flytrap and continue on under his solo moniker with a fury for metal, horror and sci-fi soundtracks as well as progressive rock. Lucifer is also the creator of the “Live Lucifer Show”- a multi media grand guignol spectacle, The “SAMHAIN CD/Novella- with images by Loren Gillspie 3- and the Splatterpalooza Horror Convention. If you have a taste for the extreme, pay attention to this immortal gorehound. He will tear your soul apart.
By Halloween of 2000 Fulci had begun to construct a side project and made his debut to the extreme metal scene with WORMFOOD. Originally slated to contribute the title song to the ill fated zombie film “The House of the Dead”, WORMFOOD instead found itself tabled when conlicts of interest arose with other endeavors.
Soon thereafter, the original Penis Flytrap disbanded. Fulci and Von Spivey attempted a new version of PFT for short while ( at one point including Rob Zombie’s very own Dr. Satan ( Walter Phelan ) from “House of a 1000 Corpses” and Abby Noxious from the Los Angeles spookshow The Order of the Fly ) but discontinued it for personal reasons. Phelan and Fulci continued to play together with newer members Syren Strange and The Aberration ( Elisa Berlin ) in a reformed unit called FLYTRAP but discontinued when Fulci sought isolation in the deep woods of Michigan.
After 3 years of silence, Fulci returned to the horror scene with 3 musical endeavors: WORMFOOD: the extreme metal project with supernatural elements as a main ingredient, The Fulci Music Project: a musical mesh of soundtrack, industrial, experimental progressive and straight forward rock and a reformed FLYTRAP: A musical journey into the heart of horror.
2010 saw Lucifer Fulci at his most active in years, with CD releases of “Cthulhu Rising” by WORMFOOD, “Morbid Mechanics” by The Fulci Music Project and “The Grand Guignol” by FLYTRAP.
By 2012, Lucifer had done away with all other band titles for his work, simply labeling all things “Lucifer Fulci.” With that spookafied pseudonym at the top and the titles of each album reflecting the tone of the work, Lucifer has re-released the 3 WORMFOOD offerings as well as MORBID MECHANICS under the solo moniker. In addition, Fulci has released an all instrumental progressive rock CD called “Aurora” and a full on supernaturally charged metal CD called “Evilution.”
In April of 2012, Lucifer Fulci released the book ” A collection of Horror: Fiction, poetry and lyrics for the damned” as he hosted the Flint Horror Con created event, “Dr. Macabre’s Musical Massacre”- sponsored by SYNAPSE films. Only days later, “A Diary of Sobriety” was released under Fulci’s actual name, David Stashko. He continues to write and record, with 2012 and 2013 revealing the works of music called “Samhain,” “Red Tenebre” ( with Loren G3, with whom he is also creating an all horror graphic novel titled “Space Cannibals from Planet Satan ) and a reboot of the original novella, SIKI CITY, called SIKI CITY 2666, again with images by Loren G3. In addition to that fiction, 2012/13 will also see the release Fulci’s love letter to splatter cinema titled ” Chunkblowers that Splattered the World.”
In April 2013, Lucifer Fulci also officially joined the ranks of THE FLINT HORROR CONVENTION in the role of co-producer, in hopes of spreading the word of his beloved genre to the people of mid-morbid-Michigan. Fulci had been a guest for several years prior, but began to play an important part when in October of 2012, he invited his friends out to make appearances at the Con. Both Walter ( Dr. Satan/ Lords of Salem ) Phelan and Cleve ( Monster Man ) Hall came out from California, pleasing hundreds of fans that may not have been able to meet them otherwise.
The legendary archangel also hints at a Grand Guignol type show that meets postmodern horror arts and technology that he is developing for the live stage and film, and will be playing selected live, acoustic performances at….you guessed it, graveyards around the planet.
