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 […]

An American Satan: a documentary by Aram Garriga

An American Satan by Aram Garriga at Sitges

An American Satan by Aram Garriga will debut at the Sitges Film Festival this October. Running time 72′ Language: English Documentary/Religion Founded in 1966 in California by a former organist and lion tamer named Anton Szandor LaVey, the Church of Satan has often been surrounded by mysteries, scandals and moral panics. Some of today’s active members of the church and other free-styled Satanists will share their views, memories, ritual practices and personal stories about how they got involved with Satanic religion and what are the false myths that still surround the movement. An immersive journey into one the most fascinating […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

As has become my tradition, on the anniversaries of my birth I post something from my archive of creative works for those who are interested in my music, fiction, and art. This year, on my 61st birthday, I offer my Sonata Infernale et Romantique—a single movement work for piano recorded by the brilliant Dr. Mark Birnbaum, who gave its premiere in 1998 at the memorial concert for Magus Anton Szandor LaVey that we produced a year after his passing. Please follow this link to read my program notes and to download the sonata—there are both MP3 and M4A files. Last […]

Andy Howl: Night on the Brocken

Wicked Walpurgisnacht!

It’s that time of the year again. Satanists, as much as any members of a religious body and probably more so, look forward to our Spring holiday with a certain wicked anticipation and joy. Winter is over; we can travel, gather together, and old bonds are reinforced while new ones are made. Others prefer to mark the holiday with more solitary pursuits, and the little experiments that were bubbling away in our laboratories are given life and come shambling into the light. Anton LaVey had it right when he shaped our annual calendar around two holidays that coincide with the […]

Anton LaVey during his formative years.

Remembering Magus Anton Szandor LaVey on the 89th Anniversary of His Birth

Today we’re celebrating the birth of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey. I’m currently working my way through an archive project that will eventually preserve and document the history of the Church of Satan, which is inextricably linked with the life story of Dr. LaVey. Like many of us, he had some lousy birthdays, some lonely ones, but most of them were pretty good; as he taught the rest of us so well, the best thing to celebrate in life is yourself. Anton LaVey’s well-kept tradition is confirmed by the number of people who remembered his birthday. Every April, dozens and […]

B&S About Movies: Church of Satan Film List

B&S ABOUT MOVIES: The 95 films on the Church of Satan film list

Originally compiled for Blanche Barton’s The Church of Satan — as approved by Magus Anton Szandor LaVey — the Church of Satan’s recommended film list is made up of films that LaVey enjoyed or felt exemplified Satanism. As Magus Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan, explained to our site earlier his week, there’s no official Church positions on various artforms, since the basis of the Church’s philosophy is individualism. This allows members to have their own personal lists as well as reasons why they feel these movies are on the film list. We’ve been covering several […]

Candyboy: Nine

Candyboy: NINE

The song was inspired by The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals. All seven deadly sins, here, are good things! Nine, the number of Ego, instead seven. As an invitation to live this life intensely in the last Age of Fire 2019, before the new Age of Ice. —Candyboy Also on Spotify

TSI: Thanks, But No Thanks by Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Thanks, But No Thanks

We’ve noted that some secularists in Nebraska have decided to combat their local Adams County Board of Supervisors’ decision to post a sign with the vapid slogan “In God We Trust” in the county courthouse by offering an alternative sign which would list our founder Anton LaVey’s text for “The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth.” Now, that initial slogan was pasted on to U.S. paper currency in 1957 and was intended as a rebuttal to what was perceived as the threat of “godless communism.” As Satanists who understand that all deities are myths, to us it is an empty […]
