Macabre media and rock music expert Baddeley charts humanity s darkest faith, Satanism, from its early perversion of Christian rituals and the high society sinners of the naughty nineties to the great beast Aleister Crowley, and latterly, the pioneering black and death metal bands who fuel modern anxieties about the occult. Using exclusive candid interviews and sumptuously Satanic stills, Lucifer Rising reveals the beliefs, activities and individuals behind the present-day media panic.

Fascinating and often shocking but worth the entrance fee for the inclusion of the final interview with murdered metal legend Euronymous alone. --Melody Maker, 2nd Feb, 2000.
The result of six years of intensive research, Lucifer Rising is lavishly illustrated with rare and unusual images, most of which are previously unseen... Baddeley has written a definitive study of a timeless subject allowing his interviewees to speak for themselves while ignoring the well-trodden pathways followed by other less-discerning writers. As a study of the potent blend of the occult and the cult of rock, it s unparalleled. Highly recommended. --Record Collector, January, 2000.
Forgive us, Lord, for this is an entertaining, witty read. --Maxim, March, 2000.

Book Description Plexus Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 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.".
