Lucifer Rising is an expanded EP released by the Swedish doom metal band Candlemass in 2008, on the label Nuclear Blast. Candlemass recorded two new tracks, "Lucifer Rising" and "White God," and re-recorded "Demons Gate" for this release.[2] The collection is also primarily composed of a series of 9 live tracks recorded in Athens, Greece on their 2007 tour (sides 2 to 4 on the vinyl edition).[3] Recording on the new material was completed in April 2008.[4] The title track, "Lucifer Rising", is included as a bonus song on the digipak edition of the full-length album Death Magic Doom, which was released six months after the EP.
