Anton LaVey: Into The Devil's Den

Anton LaVey – Into the Devil’s Den by Carl Abrahamsson

Now on Vimeo On-Demand! Carl Abrahamsson’s splendid documentary film, ANTON LAVEY — INTO THE DEVIL’S DEN, is a thorough, comprehensive, and continually evolving experience, evoking the myriad aspects of The Doktor himself. These are reflected in meticulous interviews with people who had deep connections with him, rather than some opining distant analysts or skeptical nay-sayers. The film is kaleidoscopic, full of fresh and potent imagery that surely will delight LaVey aficionados and should also ensorcell those new to that Infernal Den in which a number of us were all delighted to be welcomed. We look forward to presenting its US […]

Limited Edition Murgenstrumm Records 1968 “Satanic Mass” T-shirt Pre-order

1968 saw the release of the historic album Satanic Mass, conducted by Anton Szandor LaVey. “Recorded LIVE at the Church of Satan” the Baphomet emblazoned red cover read in one lower corner, and in the other an Egyptian-style logo for “Murgenstrumm”. Pre-order from Underworld Amusements, Ends March 16th   We have created this novelty shirt as a way to pay homage to this quirky, moody and fascinating album that is, in its original pressing, a highly sought-after collectible. Instead of a baphomet-laden design emulating the record cover, we took a more subtle approach of a shirt for the record label created […]

Collinsport Historical Society on American Horror Story & Anton LaVey

Patrick McCray at the Dark Shadows website The Collinsport Historical Society had this to say about American Horror Story’s depiction of Anton LaVey: In the most recent episode of American Horror Story, Church of Satan founder, Anton LaVey, is portrayed as one of the villains, literally worshiping the devil, consorting with the fictitious bad guys, and establishing himself as a force of evil in that supernatural universe. None of this, of course, is accurate or even tangentially related to reality. LaVey was a lot of things, and there is still alleged controversy over the verisimilitude of his official biography, but the man was a solid atheist, […]

AHS: Apocalypse and Anton LaVey

I had ceased watching American Horror Story after its third season since experiencing its incoherent plotting and inconsistent writing I found a waste of my time. Granted, there are some striking visuals and the acting of people like Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson is exemplary (others, not so much). However, in this eighth season, a mashup of earlier seasons now spinning a yarn about the aftermath of a nuclear war caused by the Anti-Christ, I had to sit through an episode as it mentioned the organization I’ve been running for over 17 years, and its founder, Anton Szandor […]

Sex Dolls & Satanism: An Overview The following is Magus Peter H. Gilmore’s statement provided to Rob Waugh of the Metro UK in preparation for his piece on the connection between The Church of Satan and the sex doll trend: Greetings: Anton LaVey promoted the idea of “artificial human companions” as a means for people to exercise sexual or other drives with a device that might gratify their fantasies without having to involve other human beings. This would permit complete control over the details of the fantasy. Of course, the ability to find porn that addresses numerous fetishes so easily […]

Mitch Horowitz: Good, Clean Satanism  Occult writer and lecturer Mitch Horowitz reflects on his early impressions of Satanism and rediscovering the writings and philosophy of Anton LaVey. I had once written off Anton as a showman and gifted musician with a instinct for the (virtual) kill. I saw his theology as little more than a secularized bastardization of British occultist Aleister Crowley, with a side of Ayn Rand’s Objectivist ethics and will-to-self thrown in. I was wrong. As I recently discovered in cultural critic and occult explorer Carl Abrahamsson’s stunningly insightful forthcoming study Occulture, Anton had a more fully developed […]

Occulture 2017 Lecture/Webinar:  Anton LaVey – Magical Innovator  Already in The Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey had shown considerable creativity. Concepts like ”Psychic Vampire” and ”The Balance Factor” soon became household terms in America and the rest of the world. His description of the ritual space as an ”Intellectual Decompression Chamber” also hit home outside the strictly Satanic perimeters. As did the slightly later term ”Occultnik”, signifying a person who is lost within old structures of occultism without being able to see what’s really of use on a practical, material level. LaVey’s initial key works, The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals, are great examples […]
