Lucifer Gunne (Tony McDonald) is Rory McDonald, a singer/guitarist/songwriter from Wellington NZ. Originally from the UK, Rory has been playing guitar since 2008, and started writing songs in 2014. Written in an alternative style with metal influences, The Red King is his first EP and is a collection of songs which swing between Angels and Devil's/ Good and Bad, with a pendulum between the two. Rory's style has been shaped by listening to artists such as Marilyn Manson, Stone Sour and Gorillaz.
The standout songs to be found on The Red King are track 2-Angels Mark, and track 4-Lucifers Ward.
Angels Mark is the real heavy hitter of the EP, truly captivating the energy of The Red King, whilst track 4, Lucifers Ward, brings some needed relief in the form of a primarily vocal and acoustic driven song.
