For the first time ever, an illustrated popular history of the misrepresented netherworld that is Satanism. Macabre media/rock music expert Baddeley charts humanity's darkest faith, from its early perversion of Christian rituals, through the high society sinners of the naughty nineties, to the 'great beast' Aleister Crowley, and latterly, the Black Metal/Death Metal rock bands who have fuelled modern anxiety about the occult. Using exclusive candid interviews and sumptuous Satanic stills, Lucifer Rising reveals the beliefs, activities and individuals that lie behind the present-day media panic.

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
