Magus LaVey alludes to the shadowy constitutional in the essay "How To Become A Werewolf: The Fundamentals of Lycanthropic Transformation" [The Devil's Notebook], wherein it is recommended that one should seek out blighted spots for privacy, performance, and fear energy resonance absorbption.

As one is wont to do naturally upon Nocturnal Constitutionals, to veer towards darkrened spots, alleyways, lonely pathways, creeks, etc., either in the wilderness and/or urban grounds, graveyards, etc., all for a sense of adventure, exploration, privacy, to appreciate the environment, overall empowerment by contemplation, meditation, and the absorbption of accumulated energy by thouughtform projections in places of nefarious reputation, wherein the practitioner effectively becomes the haunter thereof, the shadowy form moving in the darkness, wherein that fear & dread {even Vampyric} dynamic is thusly embodied, combined with energy projected from others onto the Shadowalker, thus enhancing overall accumulation.

Of course, this would be engaged with confidence, secure in oneself and abilities. One's cane and/or certain elements upon one's person may serve as advantages and equalizers if needed, as well as a basic knowledge of self-defense precautions. Musculature, stature, and posture can also be assets.

Overall, the prototypal phantom "no one wants to meet in a dark alley", as it were, otherwise may be perhaps met with cordiality.

The Haunted / Enchanted Forest

Based on an actual location in the haunted Pasadena / Altadena hills just beyond "suicide bridge"* on the premises of 'Cobb Estate'. A unlikely nook reveals the ruins of a black iron gate, seemingly out of place, set in a crumbling wall which leads into the shadowy wilderness beyond. An abandoned asylum {which can be located by following unused rusted train tracks}, and a mansion {said to have been owned by The Marx Brothers} reside therein.

As to be expected of wilderness environments, rumors and urban mythology have developed, granting it a nefarious reputation including ghosts, orbs, being touched by invisible hands, some have claimed to have been tripped, the feeling of being watched and pursued, and the sounds of screaming children have been allegedly heard. The occasional howls of local coyotes also adds to its mysterious allure.

Of the times I have visited, I found quite a pleasant spot underneath a huge and gnarled tree which has grown over some broken cement structure, nearby an erect stone edifice resembling a monolith. From that vantage point, one may overlook the city lights in the distance. It has also been known to be a spot of salacious entertainment.

Crucible of The Infernum


BLASPHEMIC CRUELTY: Crucible of The Infernum
BLASPHEMIC CRUELTY: Crucible of The Infernum
L A.S. Hell's Headbangers Records. Genre: Deathrash Metal.

Traversing the levels of Hell, The Devil's Mayhem yields the Dragon arising through the Crucible of the Infernum in fury and unholy wrath. Along with the principles of Malefic Musick consideration, this opus fulfills the 666 points of The Beast 'HatEviLust'.

  • Musick: Relentless, demonspeed launching as fiery darts across The Black Earth, into brain and body, strengthening with Abysmal Power, and inspiring possessed sinsation of infernal bliss.
  • Aesthetics: Gaze into The Pit to witness this impressive rendering of transmutating souls swirling in the nightmarish nether regions, courtesy of horror artist Juanjo Castellano Rosado. The CD itself displays the Demon unleashed by playing this composition.
  • Lyricks: The booklet opens like a portal where three shadowy robed ghouls* emerge to deliver your hellish hymnal.
    I. Imperium of the Lawless One: The principle of Divide & Conquer - infiltrate, wolf in sheep's clothing, exacerbate, imitate, subjugate, manipulate; so-called "blasphemy of the holy ghost", and alludes to 'The Abomination of Desolation'.
    II. Icons of Revolt: Rebellion which leads to pleasure and independence, the indulgence of lusts and sweet perversity sublime. Revolution that brings forth Devilution, to evolve in pure Satanic grace.
    III. From Crypts of Bloodlust: Grants the impression of the plot from The Satanic Rites of Dracula, with an apocalyptic vampiric theme - immortal evil triumphant laying waste detractors and victims, often one in the same.
    IV. The Crippler (Sodom cover): An anthem of brutality of a veritable demonic gladiator crushing all who dare defy.
Truly in league with The Devil, Blasphemic Cruelty features the thunderous reverberations of Gina Ambrosio {"Drum Witchery & Clandestine Assassinations"}, the genre's foremost female drumming talent; Alex Blume {"Seismic Terror & Deathly Curses"}, and Gene Palubicki {"Voltaic Poison & Howling Wretchery"}. If you appreciate fiercely wicked skullcrushing possession, this opus will be well pleasing. A Mighty supplement to The Devil's Mayhem {XLII}. ∞

Hellementals converge this Vernal Equinox to emerge from hidden Shadow Portals throughout The Black Earth... creatures of legend imbued with life from thought-forms throughout history - veritable tulpas given momentum in the dark subconscious of the occult mind, projected through etheric materialization... friends, fiends, minions, blackened forms moving in the gloom... preternatural fears, shadow creatures crawl up from the depths, subterranean caverns, gliding through mist & fog, born of the black flame all.

Things that slither and crawl, fly and creep, swim, walk, float and shuffle, growl and howl, whisper and roar, shimmering eyes, grinding teeth, clicking claws and talons scrape. Scales and spines, thorns, feathers, leathers, skin and bone, all arise, arise!

Beware the woods, willow trees and old oaks
Of swamps, rivers and lakes, waterfalls and caverns deep
'Neath the moon's blacklight glow
By Wizened lantern flame, nocturnal guide shall lead the way
Through paths of mystery and might
To mastery and infernal light
Sinister Wisdom and delight!

Vernal Equinox L Anno Satanas / ∞ Anno Draconum

☽ Note: This Vernal Equinox {3:45 PDT} includes a Solar Eclipse in the early morning whose resonance will be felt throughout the day and night. Eclipses are ideal for conjurations, and charging of Magical tools & talismans. It also happens to be a perigee-syzygy moon, which will enhance the potency further than usual. An overall favorable time for spells.

Charging: Go ye forth from thine Altar after the preliminary invocations and lift and/or lay the implements to be empowered upon the earth, lain upon a black cloth and/or the Altar cloth the duration of the eclipse, and otherwise in the nocturnal hours between midnight and dawn. Signalling The Cornu with the left hand, tap the horns upon the object thrice speaking the Words of Power "In Nomine Satanas, Potentiam Inferus", then trace the Pentagram thereunto. When thus empowered, which can be left absorbing until dawn, or until such time when impressed to do so - there will be a 'sign' such as that transferred by an owl, bat, raven, cat, or dog/s howling, and otherwise a gust of wind. Upon conclusion, return to The Altar and further confirm the empowerment by the Hellements, either at the Altar, and/or in that place reserved outdoors where the elements meet.

Conjurations: Consult the characteristics of certain infernal names for your particular purposes, gather the parchment and symbols thereupon, and conduct the rites of summoning between the hours of midnight and dawn. ☾


A Shadow in The Darkness


A couple of nights ago, while in the midst of the period of composing The Shadow Side store, while walking towards the kitchen to acquire a replenishment of the Belialian brew, what appeared to be a shadow extended forth from the doorway towards My direction. The area was pleasantly gloomy with only the moonlight filtering in through the window, which remained undisturbed. A shadow in the darkness. As I continued into the kitchen, I felt as if something was passing by Me accompanied by an audible "hissing" sort of breathing sound, in what could perhaps be likened to a 'demonic dragon', or "Draegon", which actually seems quite appropriate.

A very similar experience as a Dracling as well transpired while I was in bed at a former residence. One could actually discern slow moving 'footsteps' {or 'hoof steps'?} moving through the living room, which ceased just as mysteriously. Another time at a former residence, My mother claimed to have heard what she said sounded like heavy breathing deriving from My room while I was out somewhere.

Personally, I took this anomaly as a psychological 'confirmation' of My efforts, as it were, furthering My inspiration and resolve. Such occurrences tend to happen during the creation of some nefarious project, and more frequently shortly before, during, or after a Magical Working. Probably a resonant projection materializing in a conducive atmosphere. ∞

THE SHADOW SIDE: Winter Solstice

Season Lucifer§EASONS IN HELL

NOW PLAYING: §atanalia.

§eason Lucifer

The shadow of Lucifer looms long and wide across the land on these wonderfully extensive nocturnes, while hellfire burns in fireplaces; the screams of torment of those who would deem to detract us, while moans of ecstasy echo therefrom to welcome pleasures resplendent - both music to the ears.

In the northern darkness, We commemorate the longest night of the Winter Solstice with the impending arrival of the coldest months of the year, enjoying the harvest with copious fine philtres, a plethora of culinary, and other pleasurable carnal delights. And so Demon Krampus has brought forth the offerings to be savored the year through.

While deep below in the southern regions of The Black Earth, the days begin to shorten and strive through remmus towards Autumnal bliss.

The storms have come forth from Hell to replenish Belial's bounty, with rolling thunder as mighty cloven hooves descending upon the earth, with swirling whirlwinds cast by great black wings and fulmination in their wake. A Hellemental orchestration. ∞

Hail Lucifer! Hail ATAN!
