I am currently doing a research on Satanism and music. I will
appreciate if you can give me a list of bands that had composed music about Satan/Lucifer. I will like a list of songs that are in some way related to Satanism. Thanks for your help.

Lots of bands have done songs like that. Their relationship to Satanism, however, is suspect.

There are songs that could be construed as being related to Satanism, but they rarely are actually about Satan.

Look up the song "Satan Loves Me" by Dan R. Mohammed. It is a wonderful little ditty that is actually a parody of a popular Xian hym.

There are countless songs about Satan/Lucifer in black metal, and most of them are just "RRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWR!!! SATAAAN WILL RIIIIISE!!!! SPILL THE BLOOD OF THE CHRISTIANS!!!! RAAAWWR!"

Although as far as actual Satanic philosophy goes beyond the typical "Hail Satan!" stuff, two songs by an industrial band called X-Fusion have caught my attention, called "C'mon Devil", and "Bringer of Light"

If this is turning into the music thread,

then, I'll have to recommend Dimmu Borgir's latest... "In Sorte Diaboli" - their first "concept album" - lots of stuff to chew on there, and, some really well played music, I was suprised... and impressed.

Funny thing about that band; they are all really nice guys. Don't know why that is suprising, but I suppose their "intimidating" appearance would lead one to believe they are assholes. Then again, appearances can be deceiving.

If you like DB check out 1349. Same kind of music, but they mix more of punk sound into it. Very quite interesting actually.

Ah seriously, google it.

The music world is awash in bad death metal bands who 'sing' about satan. Nearly everything out there is pretty bad.

For me, most music ended about the mid-90's when I became a dad and had real responsibilities. I now rely on other people to bring me new stuff because I don't get out much and don't really have an ear to ground in the music scene anymore.

However, here are a few from back in the day that I think represent the LHP well:

My personal theme song - Am I Demon

Here are the lyrics -

Hordes of faces
Empty eyes
I see nothing new
Seasoned schemes of slimy curs
Offer up their flu
Am I beast or
Am I human
Am I just like you
Power seething
Really reeling
Reaching out for you

Am I demon
You need to know

Faces of a million hells
Rage inside these veins
Pounding out desrved pain
To anyone in need
Am I beast or
Am I human
Am I just like you
Power seething
Really reeling
Reaching out for you
Am I demon
Need to know

Am I demon
Need to know

Every world
And every limb
Torn asunder base
Everything I need is me
Everything I am
Am I beast or
Am I human
Am I just like you
Power seething
Really reeling
Reaching out for you

Am I demon
You need to know

Am I demon
Need to know.



And then there is this little number - Archangel


Go

Heaven sends me here to you
And if a-you fear you've reason to
Open up all seven seals
The beast is come to claim the youth

Archangel
Archangel
Defiant brood
Defiant brood
I call on you

Casted down my bretheren
Rebels from authority
Power, pride, contempt and lust
All these things I give to you

Archangel
Archangel
Defiant brood
Defiant brood
I call on you

I am not your son of God
The prince of light will show no fear
Mine is that which rules this world
The beast is come, I am the end

Archangel
Archangel

And when they cast out the brood
For the sin of pride misused
And when they cast down to Hell
Fucking brood

Archangel
Archangel

Heaven sends me here to you
And if a-you fear you've reason to
Open up all seven seals
The beast is come to claim the youth

Archangel
Archangel
Archangel
Archangel
Go

Archangel.


And of course - Lords of the Lefthand

Left hand power of the pure

The world will tremble at our command

Left hand power of the lords

Builds upon our destiny

Destiny, take this land

Take this land by the death of man

Left hand triumph of the will

The world will whimper in our wake

At war with the planets

At war with all mankind

We will change the face of this earth

As our lord commands

In our holy quest for supremacy

Be our holy crime

Left hand power to take

What was ours from the day of birth

Left hand is grasping strong

It does not fear its destiny

At war with the planets

At war with all mankind

We will change the face of this earth

As our lord commands

In our holy quest for supremacy

Be our holy crime

Left hand, destiny

Left hand

At war with the planets

At war with all mankind

We will change the face of this earth

As our lord commands

In our holy quest for supremacy

Be our holy crime.

Actually I was surprised as well. Most of their early songs were "skullfuck the Christians!" and "DEMONS ARE TEH AWESOMEM!!!!", but In Sorte Diaboli took me a bit by surprise because the lyrics were more of a long "Satanic Diatribe" that touched on a few philosophical points about the nature of faith, the will to power, and other topics. Not Shakespeare or anything, but still worth it.

And of course, there are the classic rock titles like "Sympathy for the Devil"- modern metal music aside.

If your looking for something a little more subtle than RAAWWWWR try these 2 for starters:-

Sympathy for the Devil - The Rolling Stones

Driving South - The Stone Roses

Enjoy.

You sir, are an idiot. Please to be explaining how this song is about satan? It's about teenage angst and depression on the surface. Read a little deeper and I think you see it is about an addiction. To make this a little easier, here are the lyrics......

I want to fly into your sun
Need faith to make me numb
Live like a teenage christ
Im a saint, got a date with suicide

Oh Mary, Mary
To be this young is oh so scary
Mary, Mary
To be this young im oh so scared
I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell
I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell

You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
You never said forever, could ever hurt like this

Spin my way out of hell, theres nothing left this soul to sell

Live fast and die fast too
How many times to do this for you?
How many times to do this for you?

Mary, Mary
To be this young im oh so scared
I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell
I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell

You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
You never said forever, could ever hurt like this

I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell

Long hard road, out of hell

I wanna live, I wanna love
But its a long hard road, out of hell

Sell my soul for anything, anything but you
Sell my soul for anything, anything but you

Hold on, phone call. What? The village is calling, they are missing their idiot.

Ding ding ding ding ding: We have a winner folks. Long Hard Road out of Hell is indeed a song about depression and addiction. Mansons autobiography and this song share a title. In the book his motivations for naming both the song and the book are laid out in plain english.

Also note that this song was originally released on the soundtrack to Spawn, originally meant to be collaboration between Manson and The Sneaker Pimps, the only way this song can even be loosely associated with a literal hell is the story line from Spawn. I.E. the character Spawn trying to fight is way out of hell.

Any real Manson fan could tell you that none of his songs are actually about Satan. Songs with titles like Anti-Christ Superstar or Little Horn might lead one to jump to conclusions but if one was to read a little deeper, as suggested by FP, they would see most the songs are metaphorical and influenced by drug use, relationships and self-loathing.

There is a list of Devil-themed music here

Of pop/rock songs that are specifically about Satan there are actually few, "Sympathy for the Devil" (already mentioned a few times) being the best known though he is also mentioned in Robert Johnson's "Me and the Devil Blues". I vaguely recall reading that Madonna's "Beautiful Stranger" was written about Satan though re-reading the lyrics I am very unsure. The lyrics to Tori Amos's "Father Lucifer" are a little more explicit regarding their protagonist.

If one were to argue that the essence of Satanism is to "live life on your own terms" and to "Be Yourself" then I would suggest that the vast majority of all music partakes of the Satanic world view to some extent.

There are a lot of "RRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWR!!! SATAAAN WILL RIIIIISE!!!! SPILL THE BLOOD OF THE CHRISTIANS!!!! RAAAWWR!" (LOL I liked that Zebu). My favorite is Slayer.

I came accross these Lyrics a few days ago and it "vibrated " in me :

 Originally Posted By: The rage to Overcome - Machine Head
This world does not want me
This world does not care
And I'm a product of this world
Confused. I'd say that's fair
This pain will never leave me
It's scarred upon my brain
Destroying everything that brought this
Just to keep me, just to keep me sane

A hatred burns inside me
Emotions out of hard
But I've the will to focus this
Survive, contrive, command
From pain comes a courage
The strength from injustice
The rage to overcome it all
An open mind
With a closed fist

I'm going to correct myself:

Reading the lyrics I don't think that Tori Amos' Father Lucifer is about Satan...

 Quote:

Father Lucifer, you never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
How's the Lizzies
How's your Jesus Christ been hanging

Nothing's gonna stop me from floating
Nothing's gonna stop me from floating

He says he reckons I'm a watercolour stain
He says I run and then I run from him
And then I run
He didn't see me watching from the aeroplane
He wiped a tear and then he threw away our appleseed

Nothing's gonna stop me from floating
Nothing's gonna stop me from floating

Every day's my wedding day
Though baby's still in his comatose state
I'll die my own Easter eggs
Don't go yet
And Beenie lost the sunset but that's OK
Does Joe bring flowers to Marilyn's grave
And girls that eat pizza and never gain weight

Father Lucifer you never looked so sane
You always did prefer to the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
How's the Lizzies
How's your Jesus Christ been hanging


For those in the mood to laugh at paranoia and general Christian hysteria, I found a excerpt of an "expose" on the "Satanism of pop music": Hell's Bell's II

STAY DOWN HERE WHERE YOU BELONG

Down below
Down Below
Sat the devil talking to his son
Who wanted to go
Up above
Up above
He cried, "It's getting too warm for me down here and so
I'm going up on Earth where I can have a little fun
The Devil simply shook his head and answered his son

Stay down here where you belong
The folks who live above you don't know right from wrong

To please their kings they've all gone out to war
And not a one of them knows what he's fighting for

'Way up above they say that I'm a Devil and I'm bad
Kings up there are bigger devils than your dad

They're breaking the hearts of mothers
Making butchers out of brothers
You'll find more hell up there than there is down below

"Kings up there
They don't care
For the mothers who must stay at home
Their sorrows to bear
Stay at home
Don't you roam
Although it's warm down below, you'll find it's warmer up there
If e'er you went up there, my son, I know you'd be surprised
You'd find a lot of people are not civilized

Written by Irving Berlin in 1920.
Irving Berlin also wrote White Christmas.

Tori revealed years ago that she was raped. My take is that song is an attempt to reconcile some thoughts about that attack. It's hard sometimes to put yourself in an artist's or band's state of mind when they write a song. This is not about Satan.

God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind) - Randy Newman

Cain slew Abel, Seth knew not why
For if the children of Israel were to multiply
Why must any of the children die?
So he asked the Lord
And the Lord said:

Man means nothing, he means less to me
Than the lowliest cactus flower
Or the humblest Yucca tree
He chases round this desert
'Cause he thinks that's where I'll be
That's why I love mankind

I recoil in horror fro the foulness of thee
From the squalor and the filth and the misery
How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me
That's why I love mankind

The Christians and the Jews were having a jamboree
The Buddhists and the Hindus joined on satellite TV
They picked their four greatest priests
And they began to speak
They said, "Lord, a plague is on the world
Lord, no man is free
The temples that we built to you
Have tumbled into the sea
Lord, if you won't take care of us
Won't you please, please let us be?"
And the Lord said
And the Lord said

I burn down your cities-how blind you must be
I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we
You all must be crazy to put your faith in me
That's why I love mankind
You really need me
That's why I love mankind

I find this song and the lyrics charming in a way:

Cake: Satan is My Motor

Ive got wheels of polished steel
Ive got tires that grab the road
Ive got seats that selflessly hold my friends
And a trunk that can carry the heaviest of loads

Ive got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is the only one who seems to understand
Satan is my motor

Ive got brakes
I'm wide awake
I can stop this car at any time
At the very last second I can change directions
Turn completely around if I feel so inclined

Ive got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion

Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is the only one who seems to understand
Satan is my motor
Satan is the only one who seems to understand

If you're not opposed to the "RRRRAAAWWWRRR", try:
Satan My Master - Bathory(Also covered brilliantly by Dimmu Borgir)
Christgrinding Avenue - Behemoth
Blackest ov The Black - Behemoth
February - The Berzerker
Dechristianize - Vital Remains
The Third of Arrivals - Necrophobic
And most certainly... Crucifixation - Deicide
Some are overtly Satanic in message, others would appeal to people who read satanic messages into the lyrics.

Dissection is a good one, blackened death metal, very melodic,
Especially the album Reinkaos (2006) is a good example of what they stand for and believe.

Okay, I have to ask, seriously, what kind of black metal have you been listening to? Maybe you have encountered some more retarded bands as well as people claiming to like this type of music? You are NOT describing the black metal I know and love. Have you heard "most" black metal songs? I doubt it.
 Quote:
Actually I was surprised as well. Most of their early songs were "skullfuck the Christians!" and "DEMONS ARE TEH AWESOMEM!!!!",


Firstly, Dimmu's first two albums were ENTIRELY in their native Norwegian, so unless you can read/speak Norwegian, it is unlikely you know what you are talking about. Also bear in mind that when their first album, "For All Tid" came out, the average age in the band was 16. Expecting a bit too much maturity out of these boys, methinks. Secondly, when they did finally convert to English on their third album, the lyrics weren't terrible. Yes, they did have one song titled "Tormentor of Christian Souls", the lyrics for which you must visit their website since the label declined to print them in the booklet. And yes, Satan is mentioned a number of times in their lyrics, but bear also in mind that, much like many other songs by many other artists, they make frequent use of metaphor.

Take the time to actually listen to and read the lyrics of some of these bands. You might be surprised to find that these guys are not simpleton fakers who have no idea what they are talking about; on the contrary many of these guys have been around the block, and full well understand what it is to be Satanic.

I would like to point you in the direction of some bands that AREN'T completely idiotic that may just change your stereotypical view.

The first one on my list: Emperor
These guys are/were amazing, and their lyrics (especially in the early songs) are quite metaphorical, but they eventually matured in their Satanic philosophy. Their swansong studio album "Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire and Demise" was an exploration of the parallelisms that can be drawn from the archetypes of Lucifer and Prometheus. I will chose, however, to include my favorite song, from their second album "Anthems to the Welkin At Dusk"


With Strength I Burn
Deep Green Dark Chaos. Blinded I run down these paths. By heart I know them. They lead to the searing cliffs. Stout they stand above the water's edge. Lifeless.
And this is my foundation. Cold stone. Formed only by winds and time. How invulnerable. Lifeless.
Ahh... I have longed to be at one with this. Yet, the waters call my name.
For once I wish to see the entity behind the voice. The face of this seduction, the beauty of my pain.
Am I blessed or am I cursed by thy presence... What is my crime... What is my deed... Is this life my redemption. Shall I repent or proceed?
I hate my flesh. Its dimension poisoned my soul with doubt. It made me question the essence of... The <<I>>
Slaves are those of this world given freedom to lay chains upon The Master. The wolf is no longer free. Release the chains and come for me.
The Elder:
<<Suddenly, his mournful cries were stunned. Out of the cold mist came three enthralling ships. Sails torn by many a storm, and the bows adorned by the most fierce gargoyles he'd ever laid eyes upon.Yet, the crew they bore... Three times twelve in number. They stood motionless, wrapped in grey, worn gowns. And from behind their shadowed faces the seductive chanting. Bidding him on board. Without hesitation, he accepted. And away they sailed...>>
Upon these seas. Wherein I drowned so many times. I scatter the ashes of destiny. Still my flames are in hunger
With fire in my heart. Shall I greet the shores ahead. Though, I know not what will burn
Desire...
Ahh... In the distance, I hear the waves wash over solid ground. And in this moment I am struck blind
Grant me sight so I can see. That which lies ahead of me. Cursed be my mortal eyes. For dying in the realm of death
Hear my call...
I return to the soaring cliffs, they truly shine of strength. Even though, I nothing learned. With strength I burn...

Next is IHSAHN (Vegard Tveitan), former vocalist/guitarist of Emperor. His latest solo album Angl is excellent, though many may hesitate to call it black metal. Still, of a decidedly Satanic nature.

Monolith
It was never
the icy winds of the heights
but the coldness of the world
that hardened my foundation

whether your approach
is that of praise or blasphemy
the construction of my being
will remain the same

if my soaring presence
threatens to break your neck
then so be it
you shall dread my name

there is a fundamental cleft
between your world and mine
one of divine origin

were you to witness
the nakedness of your own soul
it would still appear a tower of Babel

is it such a crime to go apart and be alone?
your holy simplicity turns gold into stone

Darkthrone Darkthrone has been in the scene since the late 80s. Their music, of late, has taken on a strong punk influence (good punk).

SHUT UP

Shut up, shut up!
I'll stick to my guns, now you stick to yours
Sit down!
Let's not pretend that I have to use force
Are you Satan? I don't think so!
You copy my style, and you call yourself a man

You want a piece of me? Yeah, you do
Begging for this and asking for that
Shut up, fucking twat!

Never could fathom my hate
Unable to take a hint
Who am I? You haven't got a clue
Satanism is lost on you

Not very profound, I know, but it has become one of my favorite songs ever.

These are just a few examples, all from the Norwegian scene. You can trust the quality of the Norwegian scene, for the most part. Probably the most immature and worthless of all is Burzum. It is a one-man band, Varg Vikernes at the helm; he is a media whore, and gives the rest of the scene a bad name. He went to jail for fatally stabbing Øystein Aarseth (Euronymous, guitarist of Mayhem). The guy is 100% sensationalism, 0% substance.

A few other band suggestions:

Gorgoroth: draw much of their lyrical inspiration from Nietzschean philosophy; one of their albums is titled "Twilight of the Idols". The have recently undergone some legal battles, and have since taken down their myspace page.

Immortal: while they are certainly Satanic, they prefer to draw inspiration from the northern wintry landscapes they inhabit; winter is a VERY big theme in their lyrics.


Impaled Nazarene: these guys are Satanic, and similar to Darkthrone in that they are heavily influenced by punk. They have some "funny" song titles like "Angel Rectums Do Bleed"; take a guess what the song is about...However, songs such as "Zero Tolerance" will leave you with little doubt as to where they stand.

Anyway, I know I was long-winded here. I don't believe that I will really change any opinions and, to be honest, I really don't care. I'm more concerned with setting straight the uninformed. I love this music and will take to task anyone who makes such a generalized statement without the goods to back it up. Are there "black metal" bands that are all about the sensationalism? You bet there are. Are they the norm? I don't really think so. Are they taken seriously? Only by adolescents who don't know any better. However, just like this lovely forum here, the good will rise above the bad (and crush it underfoot ;\) ).

I agree, Dissection is a great band. Reinkaos is good, but their most classic album is "Storm of the Light's Bane"; the songwriting on this album is unparalleled in any of their other work (of course, this is my opinion, but ask almost any fan, and they will say the same).

It should be noted that Dissection is of a more theistic orientation. The band leader, Jon Nodtveidt, killed himself several years ago in a sort of "Satanic" ritual. He belonged to the Misanthropic Luciferian Order (MLO) which has since been renamed the Temple of the Black Light.

Nevertheless, the music is great and I would strongly encourage those who enjoy underground metal to check them out if they are unfamiliar with them.

I'd say that "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath is a rather Satanic song, if not necessarily in the philosophical or religious sense. Not only is it written about Geezer Butler waking up to a black, menacing apparition after reading through an occult book given to him by Ozzy, but the music of the song is based on the tritone, which is also known as "Diabolus in Musica", or The Devil in Music.

I'd say that the aesthetic is very Satanic, even if the theme and the lyrics are only debatably Satanic in nature.

Like I stated in another post, I am envolved in a Satanic "black metal" project. The following are the lyrics to one of our songs:

Excidium
Music and lyrics by Lord Drakon (my stage name)

Languishing forever deep in Heavenly despair,
Angels sigh, weaping for the loss of the heir.
Satan ArchDaimon, Lord of all he surveys,
Rules a throne now black once gold on this the end of days.

Impaled upon his cross defiled, cursed priest of lies,
Crimson tears, the blood of sorrow dripping from his eyes.
King of the subservient race, fallen Nazarene son,
Thy father hath forsaken thee, the day of the trinity is done.

Dark Lord who art in Hell
Hallowed be thy Name,
Thy Kingdom is come, thy Will is done
On Earth as it is in Hell.

Set aflame the churches of Christ, they defile and plague the Earth,
Receive thou liege of Lucifer the Flame of Satanic re-birth.
No more lies shall vomit forth from reviled Christian tongue,
Children of Hell arise and hail the birth of Satan's Son!

Everlasting Darkness now descends upon the land,
Legions of Evil gather under the aegis of the Pentagram.
Satan ArchDaimon, Lord of all he surveys,
Rules a throne now black once gold on this the end of days.

Dark Lord who art in Hell
Hallowed be thy Name,
Thy Kingdom is come, thy Will is done
On Earth as it is in Hell.

Before the Black Altar of Darkness we stand,
On the night of our Infernal Kingdom's come.
So let it be written in blood,
So let it be done!

Scandinavian BM is basicaly almost all satan related,or pagan like Bathory,Burzum,Windir and that stuff...emperor did some pagan stuff too,immortal, enslaved etc.

Gorgoroth are well know for retaining the atmosphere of the early 90's Black metal scene.

Some U.S (early)death metal bands have stanic elements...Possessed of course and Morbid Angel and even Nile have some lyrics about Babylonian demons (being Nile \:\) )

Venom,slayer,celtic frost etc name satan and Satanism rather jokingly

"lucifer in starlight" (by george meredith) has been set to music by two composers, bantock and radcliffe.

henley's "invictus," which is undeniably satanic, has been set by many many people.

iago's "credo" from verdi's otello, nick shadow's "i burn, i freeze" from stravinsky's rake's progress, and "son lo spirito" from boito's mefistofele are all fabulous operatic monologues from satan's point of view.

and if the devil be a woman- lady macbeth's aria "o vluttà del soglio" from verdi's macbeth!

Vital Remains....nuf said. There whole album "Dechristianize" is the staple of American Death/Black Metal. They are one of the only Death/Black Metal bands that are 100% behind there lyrics in thought of mind. Known them for a while. Very talented, fast, brutal and too the point.

I got Coven's recording of a Black Mass which was pretty good.

Anyways, Jerry Goldsmith's 'Ave Satani' form the Omen.
Gregorian did a cover of that too that used guitars and drums etc. which I prefer. Religious chant turned satanic.

Also LaVey's Hymn of the Satanic Empire, redone also by Schizoid (hard to make out words through the horrid voice though)

I really dont like Satanism in metal CoS its brings Satanism to a diabolical extreme and puts Satanists in a bad light. Not to mention all the shit alot of bands do in their often Theistic Satanism and then the non-theistic look like theistic anyways and basically the whole thing spins Satanism in a bad way.
I just wish more effort was made into more traditional music made satanic and chant is a good one.

There is a group from France I like called Elend, they play neo-classical music with a hint of electronics. Although, I wouldn't necessarily call it satanic, but with the gregorian chants and eerie soundscapes they create it is worth a listen whether one considers it satanic or not shouldn't matter because they are amazing.

It appears that there are some people in the dark when it comes to which bands are truly Satanic in belief and which simply sing about Satan. It was mentioned in one of the posts that black metal bands from Norway are a good place to start, and there couldn't be a truer answer. Some bands to check out...
Gorgoroth
Dark Funeral
Belphegor
Emperor
Necrophobic
Slayer

There are sooooo many others it is ridiculous. The European metal bands are much more extreme than American bands in their content and often with the music itself. One of the members of Gorgoroth has been convicted of burning down Xtian churches in Norway, and this is (or was years back) a common occurrence in that country.
Some of the lyrics are quite outright in their satanic reveling while others are more subtle in their musings.

Here's an oddity from 1970. Very different, very controversial, very innovative at the time, as you'll see if you look up Haack on the web. Personally I rather liked EL, though I don't think Anton LaVey did; I recall him saying caustically that it struck him as Jesus Christ Superstar with horns. Oh, well.

Here and here are a couple of tracks from it. Definitely not the Devil's music if you only visualize him as scary and grouchy all the time ...

Cradle of Filth are self proclaimed members of the CoS. Their album "God speed on the Devils thunder" is orchistrated more than the last, but still great. I read somewhere that all the members are Priests within the CoS, except for the key boardist.

Here's another oddity from "the old days", in this case 1971. A very disturbing phonograph album called Black Mass by Lucifer appeared on the shelves. Electronic music which was somehow so creepy that aficionados who played all manner of spooky music routinely were frequently very hesitant, even afraid to play this one.

The artist in question was Mort Garson, and several of his other works are commercially available today, but for some strange reason BM remains OOP, with extreme prices asked for existing copies.

However I have found a webpage from which the entire album may be downloaded as a .zip-file which opens into MP3 files of all of the tracks. [During the download one has to listen to a commercial; just turn down the volume.]

Here's the title track on YouTube, where you can also sample a few other tracks from the album, such as "Solomon's Ring". Enjoy!

Thanks for turning me on to BLACK MASS by Lucifer. I'll have to add that to my music collection and maybe even play parts of it sometime on Dark Ryde.

I checked my list of things I have in storage and found that I have THE ELECTRIC LUCIFER, although I don't ever remember owning it.

One other ritual type album that was out there at that time that I also have is WITCHCRAFT by Coven (they did One Tin Soldier... a silly antiwar pop song), which features a "Black Mass" and songs like THE WHITE WITCH OF ROSE HALL, and DIGNITARIES OF HELL.

Haack also did a followup EL2, which was not released at the time ... only after his death in 1988. Just as frisky & fun; here's "Mean Old Devil" from it, and you get to see Haack visiting with, of all people, Mr. Rogers. [Wouldn't that have caused a scandal back in the "Satanic Panic" '80s?]

Apparently now OOP, although copies are still available. I never picked it up, probably just because the cover art looked too Raymond Buckland, but the Amazon reviews seem quite positive in a Jefferson Airplane way.

Speaking of which: I don't think that Anton ever got a memorial service from Densley & Co.; but if it had been up to me, I'd have held it atop Land's End, scattered his ashes over the cliff & into the waves, and played this.

There was much that I understood about Anton, but his enduring passion for Tiny Tim was not part of it.

I think it boiled down to his personality and something that just clicked between them. LaVey first met him on a TV show (memory fails on which one) and Tiny Tim had treated him with genteel respect. They talked and apparently enjoyed a lot of the same things and obscurities... they both enjoyed Rudy Vallee... dunno why. But whenever Dr. LaVey would talk about Tiny Tim, he always recalled him as a "sweet man." I didn't quite get it either.

Apart from the classic "Black Sabbath" , I also like very much "The Foetus of a New Day Kicking" , by Cradle of Filth. I would also not neglect mentioning "Venom". Personally I like "Buried Alive", but I also like very much "In League with Satan", "Welcome to Hell" and "One Thousand Days in Sodom".

Most of the material from these three bands is going to be Satanically themed:

Electric Hellfire Club
Tiamat
Samael

As for Tiamat, I will be the first to admit that their earlier work (early 90's) was indeed the "RAAWWWWWR!!!! HAIL SATAN!!!! I LOVE THE DEVIL!!!!!" loud and angry junk. But they underwent a pleasant transformation in the late 90's when Johan Edlund learned to sing instead of howling. And thank goodness he did! He has a deep, rich baritone voice, much like the late Peter Steele. It would have been pitifully wasted growling throughout his music. The lyrics also got a bit more refined as the singing did. \:\)

Note that, in addition to concrete "Satanic" references, there will also be references to Thelema and Sumerian mythology in Tiamat.

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum's Hymn to the Morning Star is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest recordings to ever meet my ears. In that creepy plucked violin and fretless bass-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eFd91CXfc0

Not really holding any message or meaning but more embracing the theme for the drama of a hymn to Lucifer. The only time SGM ever really dealt with this subject matter. This particular album was all about various anti-human beliefs. The band is based on a fictional anti humanist mathematician named John Cage and a fictional museum (they speak as if this is all historical fact) that was burned down on the day of its opening.

Madonna - The Beast Within

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX73a4HzFPU

Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy
And blessed are those who hear
And who keep what is written therein
For the time is near

[from Revelation 1:7]
He is coming with the clouds
And every eye will see him
Everyone who pierced him
And all the tribes of the earth will wail on account of him

[from Revelation 2:1-4]
Those of you who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan
I know your works, I know your toil, and your patient endurance
And how you cannot hear evil men
But have tested those who call themselves apostles, but are not
And found them to be false
I know that you are enduring patiently and bearing out for my namesake
And you have not grown weary
But I have this against you
That you have abandoned the love you had

[from Revelation 2:9-10]
I know your tribulation and your poverty
And the slander of those who say that they are Jews, but they are not
They are a synagogue of Satan
Do not fear what you are about to suffer
Behold the devil is about to throw you into prison

Wanting, needing, waiting for you to justify my love
Hoping, praying for you to justify my love

[from Revelation 13:1-10]
And I saw a beast rising out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads
And a blasphemous name upon its head
And the beast that I saw was like a leopard
Its feet were like a bear's
And its mouth was like a lion's mouth
And to it the dragon gave his power, and his throne, and great authority
One of his heads had a mortal wound
But it seemed to have a mortal wound that was healed
And the whole earth followed the beast with wonder

Men worshipped the dragon for he had given his authority to the beast
And they worshipped the beast saying
"Who is like the beast and who can fight against the beast?"
And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words
And it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months
It opened its mouth to utter blasphemous words against God

It was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer
And authority was given it over every tribe
And a people and tongue and nation
And all who dwell on earth could worship it in vain
If anyone has an ear let him hear
If anyone is to be taken captive, into captivity he will go
If anyone who slays with the sword, with the sword

Wanting, needing, waiting for you to justify my love
Hoping

[from Revelation 21:1-8]
Then, I saw a new heaven and a new earth
And I heard a great voice from the throne saying:
"Behold the dwelling of God is with men
He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people
And God himself will be with them
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes
And death shall be no more
Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore
For these things will have passed away

To the thirsty I will give water without price
From the fountain of the water of life
He who conquers shall have this heritage
And I will be his God and he shall be my son

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted
As for the murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolators, and all liars
Their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone."

[from Revelation 22:10-13]
And he said to me, he said to me:
"Do not seal up the words of the prophecy, for the time is near
Let the evildoers still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy
And the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy
Behold, I am coming soon
I am the alpha and the omega
The first and the last
The beginning and the end."

Amen

What are you gonna do?

There are countless songs about Satan/Lucifer in black metal, and most of them are just "RRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWR!!! SATAAAN WILL RIIIIISE!!!! SPILL THE BLOOD OF THE CHRISTIANS!!!! RAAAWWR!"

Although as far as actual Satanic philosophy goes beyond the typical "Hail Satan!" stuff, two songs by an industrial band called X-Fusion have caught my attention, called "C'mon Devil", and "Bringer of Light"


Hahaha Jack Black popped into my head singing that in his high voice. Hilarious.

Anyway while we're on the topic of songs about Satan, any Dark Funeral or Akercocke fans? Kinda typical I guess, another metal band with Satanic overtones but Akercocke espicially are plain amazing.

Do songs of Set count?

Within a late Gnostic writing translated by René Guénon that I found in a paper by Professor of Music at Colgate University; Joscelyn Godwin, states the Setian Priesthood of Egypt (19th Dynasty Ramses eras)used sacred vowel intonations to summon Set.

Invoked with an intoning of I A O (i-ee a oh) this ancient vowel ritual song seems very close to the later Tetragrammaton JHVH, YHWH, IEVE (sounding like ieoue).

I can't help but love the egyptian language. Egyptian mythology for that matter.

But yeah, didn't know that. Kinda cool.

Most of the material from these three bands is going to be Satanically themed:

Electric Hellfire Club
Tiamat
Samael

As for Tiamat, I will be the first to admit that their earlier work (early 90's) was indeed the "RAAWWWWWR!!!! HAIL SATAN!!!! I LOVE THE DEVIL!!!!!" loud and angry junk. But they underwent a pleasant transformation in the late 90's when Johan Edlund learned to sing instead of howling. And thank goodness he did! He has a deep, rich baritone voice, much like the late Peter Steele. It would have been pitifully wasted growling throughout his music. The lyrics also got a bit more refined as the singing did. \:\)

Note that, in addition to concrete "Satanic" references, there will also be references to Thelema and Sumerian mythology in Tiamat.


One of my favorite cover tunes is from Tiamat doing The Stones, Sympathy for the Devil.

I have to second that, Master Magick. Everyone and their fetus has done a cover of "Sympathy for the Devil," and most of the covers are painfully bad. Ozzy? Awful. Guns 'n' Roses? Yuck. Laibach (who I usually love)? Oh sweet Satan, no!

Tiamat not only managed a decent cover, they actually gave it a whole new dimension. Jagger's take on it was lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek, energetic, and playfully mischievous. Edlund made it serious, dark, sinister, and dangerously subtle. He did to SftD what Joe Cocker did to "With a Little Help From My Friends."

My only gripe is that he cut the "Call me Lucifer" verse, which I think is the climax of the whole song. Every bit of it, "guess my name," seemed to be leading up to that.
