Now available in iTunes, Sticher, www.satanicstorytime.com, and at www.radiofreesatan.com:

Satanic Story Time presents episode 24 – “The Devil’s Workshop.” This segment of “The Devil’s Workshop” shares old time horror radio classic, “The Devil’s Workshop.” This episode was chosen to pay homage to the culmination of the brand new theme for Satanic Story Time coincidentally entitled, “The Devil’s Workshop.” Written by John Roeburt it first appeared on the Blue Network in 1949, starring Mason Adams as Tony Marillo and Joan Banks as Tina. The story begins where a creator of wax figures works in his laboratory that he created and coined, “The Devil’s Workshop”. According to our hero, he is doing well on money and has a girlfriend named Tina. We later find that Tony Marillo’s father, Caesar Marillo, was shot down by the police in a gun fight in the park. Tony Marillo begins to experience problems in his utopia when his “wax devil” comes up missing. At first he blames his girlfriend, Tina. She denies all of his accusations. He is later approached in the dead of night by an ominous, robed figure in black who claims that his face was disfigured by a bandit in the desert. The ominous figure orders Tony to make him a wax face in exchange for money, fame, and riches. But, this devil man begins by stealing away Tony’s girlfriend, Tina. Is it all a delusion? Or is Tony in an epic battle against the Prince of Darkness? Only you can decide the truth of this dark mystery entitled, “The Devil’s Workshop”!

Church of Satan Year 50 ConclaveNow that we’ve successfully...



Church of Satan Year 50 Conclave

Now that we’ve successfully gathered and again dispersed, we can let the world in on one of our secrets—members of the Church of Satan from around the globe met in Washington, D.C. from May 1-3 to mark our Year 50 Anno Satanas. We are not a congregational organization, as explained by Magister Bill M. here, and so this conclave was a rare celebration of this important landmark in our history. We chose this city as it contains many monuments to the secularism and free thought held dear by the Founding Fathers of the United States. It was thus a suitable setting for we who treasure the principles of liberty and the separation of church and state.

Our members enjoyed a club night featuring bands headed by Church of Satan members: NATHAN GRAY, GASH, and DANSE DESADE. We had over five hours of “salon” presentations wherein our productive adherents shared their many ways of moving the world. Amongst those included were people involved in book publishing, music, ecological activism, sculptors, entrepreneurs, motivational speakers, scholars of religion, and an ordained attorney presenting his successful efforts towards legal recognition of our Priesthood in his home state. Some of the speakers offered messages meant solely for our gathering. Others had presentations that have been captured on video and we’ll offer highlights of their talks in the near future on this site.

After a convivial banquet during which commemorative coins created by iSatanist were gifted to the attendees, we were serenaded by blues guitarist DARREN DEICIDE and wowed by the prestidigitation and ventriloquism of the extraordinary CARDONE. Finally, I gave a keynote address to the crowd which brought a rousing finale to the evening’s festivities. Following a delightful Sunday brunch, farewells were said and, with new connections made, we returned to our “secret fortresses” around the world.

image

Our esteemed Reverend Merciless brought his extraordinary talents to make this a memorable assembly. We salute him not only for that, but for his release through his Rabid Crow Arts & Graphics of a hardcover edition combining the original English language texts of Dr. LaVey’s seminal companion books: The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals. This was a perfect capstone for a memorable conclave. We have all been amazed and energized by what our fellows have brought into being.

Ever forward and Hail Satan!

—Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Here is brand new track from the forthcoming Gyps Fulvus release, The Lich, set to be released this Halloween. The Lich is a concept album about a man who dies, comes back as a Lich, and goes on an quest to find and get revenge on the person who betrayed him.

This track is the first part of a two part suite called “The Invasion.”  It’s about the main character, (having come to terms with the fact that he died and came back as a Lich) assembling an army of undead creatures and invading the town where he once lived in the middle of the night to find, capture, torture, and eventually kill the one who murdered him.

This first segment, “The Invasion I: Forming & Gathering”, is a haunting, gothic-tinged, symphonic piece, which will segue into the forthcoming second part, set to be in the Extreme Metal vein.

Raising Hell Podcast – Parenting From A Satanic...



Raising Hell Podcast – Parenting From A Satanic Perspective

Raising Hell. From the Lair of Citizen Milton Cruver comes a podcast which presents the incredibly important topic of Parenting, from a Satanic Perceptive. Designed with Satanic Parents in mind, and those interested in all manner of subjects having to do with the youth of today and child rearing, Raising Hell seeks to promote a Third-Side Perspective for the inquiring and ever eager mind who desires to champion a cause a little closer to home.

This discussion and education oriented podcast takes an honest approach to promoting the individualist nature that Satanists are born with, emboldening our own youth to rise above herd-conformity through responsible parenting. By instilling in our children the critical thinking, self-awareness and infinite-self-esteem of a Satanic mindset, we can ensure that we provide them with every opportunity to excel. Yet, we can only spark the flame and stoke the fire. How they choose to use this conflagration is ultimately up to them. As it should be.

Raising Hell is available on I-tunes, as well as on the shows main website, Raising Hell. Join Citizen Milton Cruver in Raising Hell every two weeks and hear a presentation unlike any other. Help him to destroy those nonsensical media portrayals of animal sacrifice, child abuse and nefarious criminal activity that have held sway for so long. Raising Hell seeks to replace the Devil they think they know with the Devil they truly don’t!

Hail our Young Ones! Hail Satan!

—Citizen Milton Cruver

Wicked Walpurgisnacht!In this Year 50 Anno Satanas, tonight we...



Wicked Walpurgisnacht!

In this Year 50 Anno Satanas, tonight we celebrate the 49th anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan.

Around the globe we witness extremist theism casting its ugly pall, bringing death, slavery, and torture to countless individuals. It is time for those who cherish reason, merit and civilization to bestir themselves to stem this tsunami of reactionary regression so that our species may more actively pursue knowledge and creation towards ever-expanding realms of undefiled wisdom. Anton LaVey’s profound insights into the nature of the beast called Man have never been more relevant. Those carnal individuals whose self-awareness brings them to recognize themselves as their own gods flourish as they serve the highest possible cause—their own joy in living their lives to the fullest.

To celebrate our half century mark, Rabid Crow Arts & Graphics, by special arrangement with HarperCollins and William Morrow publishing, has produced a handsome hardcover volume combining both The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals for the first time in English. Now you can have these iconoclastic texts in this limited collectors edition that I’m sure you’ll treasure for years to come. This link will take you to their web page so that you can order your copy today.

Let us recall what Doctor LaVey said when this grand experiment was but ten years old:

“To those of you who were with me in the beginning when the show got on the road, and to you who have since become a part of us in mind, body or act of just plain orneriness, I am grateful for your support. ‘Evil’ is still ‘Live’ spelled backwards, and if evil we be live we will. Living well is still the best revenge against all adversity. Love, laugh, fancy, create, innovate, reap and revel—as Satanists—in this best of all worlds, World without end. Remember, the first 99 years are always the toughest. Rege Satanas!”

As we enjoy our 50th year of challenging the withering concepts of self-abnegation that still abound, we have reached that midpoint on the way towards our first century, more vital than ever before. To all of you who have had the courage to be part of our ongoing journey, know that your lives are the exemplars that will inspire future generations to embrace The Black Flame within themselves. You are living testaments to the power of our philosophy of self-deification that brings joy in abundance to ourselves and all whom we cherish. You are the Church of Satan and do our founder proud.

Here at The Black House we raise our glasses and toast your exuberance! I know that you will ride the whirlwinds to ever greater triumphs!

Hail Magus Anton Szandor LaVey!

Hail our Church of Satan!

Shemhamforash! Hail Satan!

So it is done!

—Magus Peter H. Gilmore

TO CELEBRATE THE YEAR 50 A.S. AND WALPURGISNACHT

MILITANT EROTICISM WILL BE 30% OFF TILL MAY 2ND, STRICTLY THROUGH LULU.

From the debauched mind of Aden Ardennes comes MILITANT EROTICISM.

A collection of essays describing the gutter in which our fellow men and women explore the depths of their depravity. Aden Ardennes has dedicated his life to ferreting out your dirty little secrets, and this long-awaited book is his report from the collective sexual sewer. The ideas and arguments presented in these essays are based on his experiences among the bathhouses and rest stops, his time spent with prostitutes and at motels with married men, as well as his experiences as co-host of the sex-talk podcast Naughty Bits and contributor to 9sense podcast.

Demanding nothing less than brutal honesty from the reader, he will force you to gawk in terror at your morally bankrupt inclinations. From the evils of circumcision and the glory of gangbangs to the grandeur of walking the Low Road and the ridiculousness of the monogamy-only narrative, Aden Ardennes drags you down to the Brothel, where everyone is degraded.

Further details on ordering a copy of Militant Eroticism visit www.militanteroticism.com.

For more information on Aden Ardennes or his monthly contribution to 9sense podcast follow him on Google+ , Twitter, and Facebook.

Always,
Keep your skirts up!
Keep your pants down!
And no matter who bends over-
We are all degraded!

Beginning April 30, 2015, Rabid Crow Arts & Graphics is selling a new hardcover combined edition of Anton Szandor LaVey’s The Satanic Bible & The Satanic Rituals in celebration of the the anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan.

As the seminal texts for the religion of Satanism, LaVey’s classic works have been in continuous paperback publication for nearly half a century. For decades, the 1970s University Books hardback editions of these books have been out-of-print. When found, these are expensive collectors items costing hundreds of dollars.

Now, through a special arrangement with Harper Collins and William Morrow publishers, these pioneering works are available worldwide for the first time in English in a combined, high quality hardcover edition via Rabid Crow for only $50.00 in US currency (plus shipping/handling charges).

Orders are now being accepted for this limited edition!
