John Lennon’s Interest in the Occult

John lennon Faustian Pact A book by Joseph Niezgoda – The Lennon Prophecy, A New Examination of the Death Clues of the Beatles – makes a good case for John Lennon making a pact with Satan in exchange for fame and fortune. The author is a first generation Beatle fan, has read every book out on the rock group, and admits conflict with his love of the music and the ...

The Beatles and the Occult

1 of 30   The Symbolism of the Beatle in the Egyptian Tradition John’s first musical group name was “The Black Jacks”, a weapon for knocking people out. Then “The Quarry Men”, because he went to Quarry Banks High. Then Johnny and the Moondogs (the moon is an occult symbol). Then the Nerk Twins (two days only). Then The Beatals. Then The Silver Beetles (silver is a symbol for the moon). ...

Jimmy Page’s Fusion Between Music and Magick

1 of 5   Page and his Occult Bookshop Jimmy Page photo above, taken by Herb Greene, 1968. Page’s interest in Crowley would be, like Crowley himself, grossly misrepresented and misunderstood. Perhaps even maligned. In the early 1970s, Jimmy Page owned an occult bookshop and publishing house, “The Equinox Booksellers and Publishers” in Kensington High Street, London, eventually closing it as the increasing success of Led Zeppelin resulted in his having ...

Led Zeppelin and the Occult

In March of 2012 AD ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy Page, released a recording titled “Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks.” Stick with us on this as we will go from denials of actual practices of the occult to outright admissions. http://www.examiner.com/article/led-zeppelin-s-jimmy-page-lucifer-rising-and-the-stairway-to-hell In keeping with our modern fascination of re-mixing, revisiting, re-mastering and re-making; the new release comes exactly 40 years from the time of the original recording. There is surely ...

Danzig and the Occult

This one is no secret but I’m still amazed and a bit bummed that this sacred icon of my youth came from such a profane source. Ok, most of my sacred icons came from profane sources but…CRYSTAR the Crystal Warrior???? I hope comic artist Michael Golden received some royalties. This grossly uncredited appropriation first appeared on Samhain’s November Coming Fire but is most popularly remembered for its appearance on the ...

Bathory and the Occult

The first Bathory LP boasted one of the most striking and memorable graphics of the decade but it was only in recent years that the true creator of the infamous yellow goat was finally celebrated. Quorthon’s official website describes the history of the image as follows: “Next up was the album cover artwork. It had already been decided that the main color for the album was going to be black. ...

Marilyn Manson & the Occult #2: The Use of the Tarot

1 of 35   Marilyn Manson’s Use of the Tarot The Tarot is a centuries old form of divination. Often misconstrued as being used for the purpose of foreseeing the future, the Tarot can in a sense foretell the future but only inasmuch as revealing to the reader one’s state of being at present and only thereby can be derived the path one is undertaking, as told by Alejandro Jodorowsky, a ...

Slayer and the Occult

1 of 4   The Occult in Hell Awaits “Join us…Join Us…JOIN US!!!!” Say what you want about Slayer (or, better yet, please just stop saying, “SLAYER!”) but Hell Awaits still rules. The chainsaw riffs shred your corpus callosum leaving you clapping like a one-handed conundrum, the brilliant poetry barely makes sense but somehow still pisses off your parents and Dave Lombardo sounds like he’s hammering his way out of a ...

Madonna and the Jewish Kabblah

Intitial Contact with the Kabbalah Kabbalah is the mystical tradition of Judaism. It is considered a form of mysticism.[1] The Kabbalah tradition stretches back for centuries, but it was in the 13th century when its essential book, the Zohar, was written in Spain by Moses de León. Basically, Kabbalahists see a mystical element to the Torah.[3] Madonna became attracted to Kabbalah in the 1990s, some say as a way for ...
