GREAT-GRANDMOTHER’S NECKLACE


Danielle and her friends are Satanists and the Apocalypse has begun. Oh yes, the Gates of Hell have literally opened wide and they’re about to be greeted as brothers, sisters, and friends. To say the least, they have not prepared themselves for this eventuality. Will Danielle’s family history help them cope with this new reality? They’ll have to find out.

The story “Great-Grandmother’s Necklace” by Witch Hydra M. Star originally appeared in an end of the world themed anthology, No One Makes It Out Alive, which was compiled and released by the author in early 2012. It appears here now as a stand alone e-single and physical chapbook along with the bonus story “She Knew”.

THE NEW PURITANISM

The latest news that comedian Mike Ward ordered to pay a $35k fine for a joke is further evidence of the new wave of secular puritanism that’s sweeping the Western World. In other news, Wikileaks sparks a thread of comments on what they call the “Cyber feudalism” of Twitter’s banning of gay libertarian Milo Yiannopoulos for speaking the ‘wrong’ way to a high profile Hollywood actress. They accuse Twitter of giving special access to a politically aligned celebrity over other users who have faced vastly worse. Minecraft creator Markus Persson weighs in as well, voicing his concern on Twitter.

All of which reminds me of Gavin McInnes’ video from a couple of months ago, Why far left “progressives” are the “new Victorians”. While we’re seeing a decline in a spiritual basis for our morals in the West these puritanical instincts remain, now secularized. Without a god or metaphysics as a crutch they double-down on politically correct virtue signaling in an effort to be the biggest Good Guy on the block. 

In my estimation this is the real danger that Anton LaVey warned against in Point 3 of his Pentagonal Revisionism program.

50 Jahre Church of Satan

Exquisite Essays und Interviews

EDITION ESOTERICK PUBLISHING has released a German language commemorative book in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Church of Satan.

“50 Jahre Church of Satan“ starts with a retrospective of the legendary cabal in form of a historical and symbolical topography, subsequently examines the many facets and meanings of the figurehead Satan, gives founder Anton Szandor LaVey a chance to speak in a rare interview from “Modern Primitives” about tattoos, alienation and stratification, but also contains interviews with current High Priest Maestro Peter H. Gilmore about the religion of the carnal and outstanding individuals, as well as philosophical nuances and the present global political situation from a Satanic point of view. Apart from pragmatic and philosophical reflections concerning the question “What do Satanists want?” the reader can finally expect the description of a Satanic Priest about his development culminating in the festivities of the anniversary of the Church of Satan on Walpurgisnacht 2016.

RADIO FREE SATAN:  DARK WHISPERS - EPISODE 019 - DARK

“ On this episode, DJ Lyra is doing another theme: Dark. She focuses on four artists and pulls some of their darkest material. Lyra explains on the podcast that she has always  enjoyed songs in a minor tonality, and that is where we’re going with this show; she finds beauty in the sadness of the songs. Don’t worry, however, as she makes use of her remix deck to keep the beat going. The background music for this episode was written, recorded, and produced by Lyra and is titled “Sophismata”. She would love to hear feedback on the episode and the background music. “

Thirty Years of Anger By Marquis H. K.ONE MAN’S JOURNEY THROUGH...



Thirty Years of Anger By Marquis H. K.

ONE MAN’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE AUSTRALIAN UNDERGROUND HARDCORE PUNK & EXTREME METAL SCENES

Thirty Years of Anger is an uncompromising story of one man’s journey through the Australian underground hardcore punk and extreme metal scenes and how he discovered The Satanic Bible which led to his involvement in the Church of Satan. It begins in 80’s Brisbane in the oppressive police state of Joh Bjelke Petersen where anyone who looks slightly different is hassled to no end and at times detained without reason by the cops. The Treasury Hotel was the focal point of activity where bands played every Friday and Saturday night and battle lines were drawn between Nazi skinheads and the notorious Sick Boys.

‘Marky Hardcore’ as he came to be known fronts his own band Anger In Motion establishing a network up and down the east coast of Australia with bands such as Toe To Toe and Warpspasm. This is a no holds barred story of someone who has experienced this lifestyle first hand. In a pre-internet era where kids put on their own shows and set up their own communication in the form of fanzines.

Often gritty and at times brutal this is a book that tells it how it was from someone who’s lived it.

Paperback, 294 pages.

$29.95 AU plus shipping from Boolarong Press.

About the Author:

Marquis was the front man for Brisbane hardcore punk band, Anger in Motion. He has managed bands, and organised tours and clubs events across the punk, thrash, grind and metal genres since the 1990s. A keen writer Marquis’s other passions include comics, horror movies and travel.

DARREN DEICIDE ON TOUR


Darren Deicide
will be touring with The Edgefield C. Johnston Duo through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York City. The tour begins in Scranton, PA and ends with the 2nd Annual Night of Roots-Punk Ruckus hosted by Lady Zombie at Otto’s Shrunken Head.

July 14th - The Irish Wolf, 503 Linden St., Scranton, PA

“If any proof is needed that the power of blues is easier to find than ever, look no further than Darren Deicide,” said The Aquarian Weekly. “Surprisingly rugged and rich…Darren Deicide brings more danger to rock n’ roll with a single blues lick and a few moments of your time than most contemporary bands do over the course of a tour,” said Jersey Beat. Darren Deicide is the pioneer of his own style of neo-jukehouse blues that acknowledges diabolical traditions while treading its own path through the contemporary world.

I, Superman by Reverend Adam P Campbellan article for The...



I, Superman

by Reverend Adam P Campbell

an article for The Black Flame—July, LI A.S.

“You look up when you wish to be exalted. And I look down because I am exalted.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

My earliest memories center around coloring books. There was something about bringing a page to life through a crayon, marker, pen or pencil that excited me. My favorite coloring book was Superman. The way his muscles bulged as he lifted a car or the speed lines that trailed him as he raced to save someone in distress. I was a part of his experience. I literally colored the experience as I narrated his struggles and victories in my imagination. For me, there was no higher power, no greater god than Superman and by extension, myself.

You see, I was an accident. Unplanned. I was a miracle. This is what my mother told me. My parents had two daughters but my father always wanted a son. After two misses, as he saw it, they were ready to call it quits. My mom had an appointment to have her tubes tied, and a week before the appointment she discovered she was pregnant. You could say it was because of this she always put me on a pedestal. My father was so proud, he rarely let me down. He shunned his daughters to celebrate his son. I was the prince, the heir to his non-existent throne. A gift.

Kal-El was the first natural son of Krypton and more specifically, the house of El. His parents had no expectation of having a natural birth, and when they saw their little boy, they exalted their son. They knew their planet was dying, and rather than see this miracle die with it, they sent him off to live. When Kal-El crashed to Earth, he was discovered and raised by the Kent family, who could not have children of their own. They raised him as Clark Kent, instilling him with a firm moral compass and taught him to use his power for good.

Kal-El or Clark Kent or Superman is alien, yes, but mortal. His physiology is enriched by the radiation of our yellow sun. It is our place in space that gives him his godlike powers, but without his power, he is the same person. He is strong of will. He has the courage of his convictions. He is Self-Actualized. He acknowledges his weaknesses and tries to improve on them. He is the best of what makes a man.

Friedrich Nietzsche wrote about the Übermensch in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The Übermensch is not a superhero as we understand it through modern superhero comics, but a state of empowered humanity, of being satisfied with the natural world, and commanding it so as not to need fairy tales of an afterlife, or higher being—of truly being satisfied with who and what we are.

It is this idea that frames the phrase “God is Dead”. If God is the source of destruction of humanity, seeking his enlightenment is the only way to transcend that destruction, and the Übermensch is humanity transcended, there is no need for God. The Übermensch is a goal of self. It is the self-actualized state many are capable of reaching, though most will never make the climb.

Anton Szandor LaVey created the Church of Satan and Satanism as a carnal counter to the hypocrisy of the Judeo-Christian world. The Satanist is one who champions the natural world, while exercising his will to command it. In The Satanic Bible, LaVey wrote that “The God You Save May Be Yourself”. This is a revolutionary idea that is a natural ‘next-step’ from the Übermensch. If we create god as an extension of our ego and sorrow, and we recognize this fact, we are freed to create whatever type of god we want. Why not be your own god!? You are the source of your depravity and sin, you are the source of your rage and destruction, and you are the source of your compassion and lust—OWN IT!

LaVey tells us that humanity needs ritual, another excuse for creating god, and that we can celebrate our own demon of pride via Greater Magic—formal cathartic ritual. Through such ritual we combine the carnal with the spiritual and then we realize there was no spiritual in the first place! If we simply empower ourselves, we can be powerful. And in recognition and the exercising of this idea, we truly are the highest embodiment of human life!

I connected at a very young age with the idea of being a god. You could call it a natural step of the praise my parents showered upon with, my recognition of self as a being separate from the herd of god worshippers, a natural Übermensch, or as a chromosomally created Satanist.

My connection to the idea of being a Superman, an Übermensch, a Satanist is not exclusive to my human experience, but it is restricted to those who have the courage to step outside of the false light of divine salvation. It is only visible to those who refuse to accept the image of others’ manufactured gods, the notion that this world is of sin, and that that is somehow a bad thing. IT IS NOT.

So what are the characteristics of THIS Superman?

  • Strength of Character: We have a strong moral compass and sense of self. This is partially derived from the culture in which we were raised, but also from our carnal egos. Not one of us need see the world as the other, simply because it is OUR strength of character that guides us.
  • Self Actualized: This is not something that is ever truly achieved, something that you will have and thus stop chasing. We are aware of our individual strengths and weaknesses. We see where we want to be in life, and strive to better ourselves where we feel we are deficient, constantly climbing that mountain to self-awareness.
  • Godlike to the herd: We understand that by our very human nature, we need to celebrate the carnal. We may practice ritual or psychological manipulation to fulfill this need. We also exercise both perspective and honesty in self evaluation, ideas that are truly foreign to the rest of humanity.  
  • Super Powers: We may not be faster than a speeding bullet or able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but Satanists do have tools at their disposal. Through the practicing of Lesser and Greater Magic we can make that which would not normally occur, happen, simply because we demand it. We manipulate the thoughts and experiences of those around us in accordance to our will.
  • Aesthetics: Every superhero has a costume. It is a natural cloak they drape themselves in. It is an expression of who and what they are. Having a healthy sense of style, personal aesthetics, is the primer for exercising your power upon the world. Knowing your own style allows you dominion over others, making them malleable to your will.

All of this means we are separate from the rest of humanity, but we are seen as gods to them. We refuse to bow down to their messiahs, and stand over their prostrate bodies, arms outstretched, exercising our command over them. The best part is, in most every case, they have no idea it is happening. Our super hero alter egos walk among them, unseen.

So in closing, yes, I am Superman but that’s not what the ‘S’ on my chest stands for.

—Reverend Adam P Campbell

Accusation Party 6: All Had Been Enslaved


It has been an eternal constant for man to strive for dominance over his own. From our earliest days, many of us discover ways to best our competitors and establish ourselves to a position of power. Whether it’s on the playground, in the business world, or on the field of battle, being on top is hard-wired into most of us. However, others might not be so motivated or capable. Thus, the division between master and slave comes into play, whether through natural or contrived means. And we’ll be discussing this dynamic as we unapologetically dive into the nature of human slavery, its widespread history and its continued practice. Opening quotation read by Magister Kevin I. Slaughter.

The Accusation Party is your guide to the third side, representing critical thought and analysis with a complete disregard for mainstream censure. It is total free speech—no trigger warnings, no political correctness, no privilege checking, no cultural inclusiveness. Nothing is sacred. None will be spared.
