On My previous trip to Barnes & Noble, I picked up a copy of "Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground" by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Soderlind, and it has been quite an intriguing read - the book mostly focuses on church arson, murder amongst their own, and the development of this counter-culture primarily in The Netherlands, spawned from the iconoclasm of Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Mercyful Fate, Possessed, and Slayer. These were bands that I listened to in formative evilution, and still put them on the crackling turntable from time to time when the feeling is appropriate, for evocation and Vampriric invigorating preservation/time travel. Of particular note, and the main reason I purchased this tome, is for the interview with Dr. LaVey and Ms. Barton, in which they discuss the pretention of many of these devil-worshipping bands who are mainly not Satanists, and the precious few who actually are, like King Diamond and Acheron, to name only a couple.
By now, we know that Satanism is about Strength Through Joy, Living Life to The Fullest, evolving to one's highest potential, a winner's creed, not about misery and criminality, which hampers self-preservation, and is decidedly and ironically Christian in nature. The horror genre does span the multimedia spectrum, but most of those devil-worshipper types divulge their misinformation from horror movies, books, and music lyrics, which are intended as entertainment, not to be taken fundamentally. The Satanic Bible explais what Satanism is, and the non-satanic will frequently misinterpret this essential text, and crib from the J/C bible at that. And they eventually return to their god, whom they never really left. And that is as it should be, for it is a process of stratification. The blindlight religions muck-rake the inferior away from us, as well as those who dwell within the same paradigm. Black sheep are still sheep, and have no place amongst the Black Wolves, which they have pretentiously attempted to be. We are The Church of Satan, the Source of true information.
