Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship and Rock 'n' Roll
Plexus Publishing, Limited, 2010 - 256 pagine
It's only natural that rock and roll ? ?the devil's music” ? and Satanism should be intimately linked. Lucifer Rising explores this unique cultural confluence. Divided into three parts, the book first traces the history of Satanism, from the birth of the Black Mass through the fashionable sinners of the Hellfire Club. The second section examines Satanism in the 20th century, including Aleister Crowley, the formation of the Church of Satan, the Manson Family, and the rise of occult-influenced bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The book's third part looks at the new waves of Thrash Metal, Death Metal, and the Scandinavian Black Metal scene; the murder case surrounding the band Burzum; the neo-Nazi element; and the religious right's courtroom pursuit of heavy metal. Lavishly illustrated throughout with graphics, medieval woodcarvings, and stunning photographs, the book also contains entertainingly cynical commentary from Anton LaVey, in one of his last in-depth interviews, as well as the last interview with murdered Death Metal musician Euronymous.

Review: Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship, and Rock'n'RollRecensione dell'utente - Benjyklostermann - Goodreads
Some of the history can get a bit dry if you're not that into reading about the occult. Very informative, and cool pictures. This really shows that rock'n'roll and the devil go hand in hoof. Leggi recensione completa

An interesting look into a not widely known about subculture. Very much so a history of the church of satan, the individuals involved and other satanic groups throughout history. Leggi recensione completa
