With photographs and artwork from self-described Satanists, this elaborately researched look at the nature of evil sheds light on -- and makes light of -- popular culture's darkest secret. Lucifer Rising includes a history of occult-influenced rock music as well as candid interviews with modern-day Satanists and controversial rock stars who confirm that the dark side is indeed the religion of the rebel.

Review: Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship, and Rock'n'Roll

User Review  - 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. Read full review
