Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet


19 years ago tonight we marked the first anniversary of the passing of Magus Anton Szandor LaVey with a sold-out piano concert in Manhattan titled DIABOLUS IN MUSICA by the brilliant Dr. Mark Birnbaum. The performance was splendid and the audience deeply moved. As you can see from the program above, it was a selection of evocative works meant to celebrate the uniqueness of Magus LaVey.

Below are selections from that magical evening. On this 20th anniversary of his passing, we know many of you will join us in pondering the life and legacy of the inimitable Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey.

Hail Magus LaVey!

Hail Satan!
