The Seventh Satanic Statement - Das Tierdrama Ritual

The Rite Stuff: Anton LaVey’s The Satanic Rituals

To celebrate this Walpurgisnacht, I am publishing the introduction I wrote for THE SATANIC RITUALS. A South American publisher of exquisite volumes is releasing authorized versions in Spanish of both THE SATANIC BIBLE and THE SATANIC RITUALS. Since it had none, I was asked to write an introduction to the latter book, and I completed it on January 13 in 2020. The Spanish translation of this essay—“The Rite Stuff”—will appear in the new release, which may only be for sale in specific South American nations. More information will be forthcoming when these books emerge. For now, you can read my […]

Romano: The Devils Reign Virtual Gallery

The Devils Reign Virtual Gallery

Stephen Romano, with the assistance of the Reverend Andy Howl, has created a virtual gallery based on The Devils Reign exhibition of 2016 in honor of this Walpurgisnacht: the 55th anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan and the 20th anniversary of Peter H. Gilmore becoming its High Priest. Special thanks to Katie Doherty, for helping to maintain the integrity of the project by releasing it on her platform, BLACKFLOWERS. You may view it here.

The Maestro!

Presenting The Maestro!

In honor of Peter H. Gilmore’s monumental 20th anniversary as the High Priest of the Church of Satan, I am proud to present this amazing portrait. The artist Stuart Palm and I have been working on The Satanic Playing Cards and we are nearing completion on the creative design part and will be moving to the manufacturing soon. This is one of the cards and we thought it would make an amazing t-shirt image. The shirts will be a limited run of hand silk screened t-shirts that are made in NYC by a local business at Rockaway Beach. $40.00 Post paid […]

Count MoriVond: Viral Rabid Spume

“Viral Rabid Spume” by Count MoriVond, from MLS: The COVID19 Writings

Episode 4 of “Mortification-Like Sentiments: The COVID19 Writings” This one is called: Viral Rabid Spume “Lathering in viral rabid spume, demoralized in one’s isolation” – the symptoms of media over-exposure are frothing the human soul at the muzzle. The mind degenerates as the stagnant body f*cks itself away from depression. …and further still down the existential, corona-laden mind-grave we go… —Count MoriVond  

"Static Cream" by Count MoriVond

Episode three: Static Cream The 3rd installment of “Mortification-Like Sentiments: The COVID19 Writings” series called: STATIC CREAM …and further down the existential, corona-laden mind-grave we go… a- jolting and a-jarring. More poetry and less performance. —Count MoriVond

Corman: The Masque of the Red Death

Walpurgisnacht 2020: The Masque of Covid-19

Being in the midst of a global pandemic arouses a keen awareness of the fragility of our civilization and the ephemerality of human life. People regularly die from varied causes, at rates that most ignore during the pursuit of their personal goals. But news of additional demises beyond the normal tally should jog us into a rude awareness: One can lose the precious gift of living in ways that otherwise might be avoided when an infectious disease is making the rounds. We Satanists do not believe in any form of afterlife—no after life mints for anyone! We generally do all […]

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 […]
