HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGUS GILMORE! 

Today, Magus Peter H. Gilmore celebrates not only his birthday, but also his fifteen years as the High Priest of the Church of Satan—a point he reached this past Walpurgisnacht. At that conclave marking the 50th anniversary of the founding of our organization, the hierarchy and members officially named him Maestro of the Church of Satan, as he’s described his position as akin to that of a conductor of an infernal orchestra of exemplary soloists playing a Satanic Symphony written by Anton Szandor LaVey.

As his gift to his admirers, another piece of his music has been added to his downloads page on www.churchofsatan.com. Titled ALGOL, it is a work composed, performed, and recorded by Maestro Gilmore, recently remastered for your listening pleasure. An accompanying program note explains details of the creation and meaning of the electronic work, whose title refers to the star that is the eye of Medusa’s head in the constellation Perseus.

So, Happiest of Birthdays to our Maestro for his 15 years as our conductor as he turns 58 today. May there be many years of his leadership to come!

Hail Magus Gilmore! Hail Satan!

CHILDREN OF PERDITION 


Children Of Perdition (Melodic Death Metal project of Church of Satan member, David Sinclair-Smith) have released four promotional videos on YouTube. The four clips provide an overview of Children Of Perdition’s style from riff-orientated Death Metal to more subdued stylings such as a darker form of Trip-hop à la Portishead. The lyrics are strongly influenced by the writings of Anton LaVey and Peter H. Gilmore.

The official Children Of Perdition video clips can be viewed on YouTube here.

Baphi and Mephi Can Be Yours!


The My Little Baphy project is back in production! If you’re not familiar, each of these guys are hand crafted by me (Mister 47), to order, and are modeled after one of the Infernal Names. Currently there are two available, Baphy and Mephi. As the series progresses, there will be nine of them. Perhaps I’ll do multiple series as there are sufficient names.

If you’ve never seen them in person, they stand 9" tall, 5-6" in length, and about 3-4" in width. The body is a vinyl base, and the figure is molded with sculpee and wire, hand painted, then treated with a layer of triple thick semi gloss. The colors shown are the defaults for each, but I do take custom orders as far as colors go.

They are currently going for $60 individually, or $100 for a pair. Shipping is included for U.S. orders. Inquiries and orders can be sent to rawson.illustration@gmail.com, and I take PayPal. Allow 3-6 weeks from time of order for production and delivery. Grab them while you can!

Trigger Warning: Exploring the Wasteland with Fine Artist V Holeček 


V Holeček’s pencil drawings and acrylic paintings evoke an other-worldly realm that is earthy and engrossing. His darkly surreal landscapes are deliciously organic but filled with post-apocalyptic-dystopian wrecks and outsized bones and skulls littering the environment…He creates these arresting bastardisations of classic images, with targets including a portraiture of a Renaissance style angelic woman who is afflicted with a pig’s snout, trotters, and the absence of eyes (in Das Tierdrama). There is also George Washington with black anime-proportioned eyes and tentacles (in In His House at V’rnon, Dead Washingthulu Waits Dreaming) and American Gothic (in Amerikan Gothique). His inspirations include H.R. Giger, Zdzislaw Beksinski, Darius Zawadski, Chet Zar, Lori Earley, Hieronymous Bosch, Aunia Khan, and Glenn Arthur.

Satan Takes the Stage: Redefining the Ritual Chamberby Reverend...



Satan Takes the Stage: Redefining the Ritual Chamber

by Reverend Nathan Gray
an article for The Black Flame—May, LI A.S.

Art, music, and philosophy are the great culmination of Greater and Lesser Magic. They are the foundation for great war and great peace. They are what calls us to our own living ritual chamber, and beckons us to live!

Satanism does not insist that each of us utilize Greater Magic, but it is most certainly encouraged. Greater Magic empowers us each to actively take our reins and steer ourselves down our paths in a way that no other religion gives its members the power to do. Through ritual magic, we can purposefully set our minds and hearts to actions that benefit us. I try to focus not on moving the outside world with my Magic, but commit to strengthening myself for, against, or releasing myself FROM the outside world.

Every Satanist is a unique vessel through which the application of Ritual is moved. For some of us, catharsis comes from carrying out the methodical steps laid out in the Satanic Bible and Satanic Rituals. For some of us, maximum catharsis is achieved by ritualizing in a personalized manner best suited to who we are and what we do.

For me, that action manifests through my music. For over 20 years now, songs are where I have thrown all of my emotions, spun them into art, and expelled them through my live performance.

In a manner of sensory tantalization alone, a concert is all encompassing for both myself AND my audience. The environment is abuzz with sight, sound, smell, and even temperature. All of these elements marry to create an atmosphere that is absolutely incomparable to any other time and space. Within that ritual chamber is, for me, the most important element of all: the energy of an audience.  I invite everyone who sees me perform to become a part of the ritual, rather than just watching it. Hungrily feeding off each other in purposeful chaos, I end up leaving that stage a changed man, every single time. That union of fantasy and light is special. It is MAGICAL. It creates the perfect environment for emotional release, and for the celebration of our most primal selves.

This Walpurgisnacht, I had the exhilarating honor of performing that ritual of music with a room full of people who truly understand what I do for its unique catharsis. In a spectacular display of elegance, carnality, and distinction, the Church of Satan celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a Conclave held in New York, during which Nathan Gray Collective played a show in front of Satanists from all over the world. We gathered in an exquisite room illuminated in crimson, and dined like royalty. After indulging in the feast, I took the stage to sing in front of some of the most powerful magicians in existence. It was most certainly one of the most intense and memorable shows of my career to date.

I encourage each of you to think outside the box, and play with Ritual a little. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to utilize Greater Magic–only your way. Find what combination of elements brings YOU maximum catharsis. Ritual is less about following steps in a book, and more about a Satanist making their own magic within themselves, so that they can be their best and exist in that vital life that only a Satanist can make. You are the highest power. You move mountains and you part waters. Ritual is one of the most powerful tools to clear your way down that path.

RICK POWELL: PATIENT #151


This was originally published in the April 2015 edition of Infernal Ink Magazine and Witch Hydra M. Star even offered to do an Afterword to my story which is included in this ebook version. In the story, an interview with a young, deranged, and dangerous woman could hold the key to the gruesome events on that October night. Was it some deep sexual obsession or something supernatural that led to the unspeakable? This tale has strong sexual and violent content. Not to be read by readers under the age of 18.

—Rick Powell

From the afterword: “A few pages into the story, I thought “Patient #151” was going to be just another in a long line of stories I’ve been unfortunate enough to read that feature Satanists or devil worshipers (no, the two aren’t the same) that worship the ‘dark lord’ by killing small animals and murdering people. Often these stories have a supernatural twist; the devil is real, he grants his followers’ wishes, or turns on them. It’s a horror genre cliché that unfortunately a lot of people believe is real. Patient #151 is one of those people, but Rick Powell is not. What is not a fictional cliché is how dangerous such beliefs are when entertained by the mentally unstable. This story perfectly and in an entertaining manner illustrates this danger… which is exactly why we published it in the April 2014 issue of Infernal Ink Magazine.”
