Magus Peter H. Gilmore

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 […]

Ostara, Dawn Goddess, also known as Ēostre

TO EACH HIS OWN

Today, Christians celebrate their well-worn myth, lifted from earlier pagan religions, of a savior risen from the dead. Some neo-pagans will esteem the relatively obscure female deity, Ēostre. We’re often asked what Satanists might be doing while others honor the “walking dead” Nazarene or a goddess of the dawn? Since we are free of any holiday obligations, we might ignore this date altogether. However, enjoying whatever one finds pleasing from festivities associated with this time of year would also be a proper pursuit for we diabolists. While candy is often a part of this day—and these days there are some yummy […]

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 […]

EXQUISITE EQUINOX!

Many Satanists mark today’s seasonal pivot point, for we feel at one with the Earth and its continuing cycles. In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring arrives, replacing Winter’s stasis with life surging in triumphant burgeoning. In the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn shall soon cast its soothing spell after the blaze of Summer, presaging the coming harvest with all of its fertile abundance. Here in the haunted Hudson Valley, Winter has been ebbing slowly, with an occasional day of comforting coziness retreating as the chill season refuses to release its gelid grasp. This extended coda brings greater appreciation for the ever-increasing warmth, and […]
