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.
Lavishly illustrated throughout with graphics, medieval woodcarvings, and stunning photographs, the book also contains entertainingly cynical comment from Anton LaVey, in one of his last in-depth interviews.

It ironical they equates sex acts with satanic ritual. Yet the author and many of the people in this book. Claim to be satanist, but with believing in satan figure. Lucirer schmuck claim anal sex was satanic and he just had no clue about anything. It was Interesting to learn how many label satanic, but really were more pagan then satanic. Gavin Baddeley is a Reverend in the Church of Satan, so he obviously knows what he’s writing about and has done research on the subjects written in the book.
I found the book to be very informative, it kept my bavin until I finished reading the book. Most people view Satanists as “Devil” worshippers, that is far from the truth. They don’t worship the Devil, Satan, or God. Satanists view themselves as “God”. Satanism is a “selfish” philosophy, it centers around an individual, yourself. If you want to be the best dog breeder in your neighborhood, do so.
I’ll get back to the book.
Gavin has done a hell of a job with this book, very well done. But I’ve found a few errors that I’ll point out to you. On pagehe lists 3 albums by the Black Metal band Bathory. Bathory’s first album was simply titled “Bathory”, not Raise The Dead! On pagethere’s a picture of an early lineup of Mayhem, the definitive lineup if you will. Despite these few errors, the book is very entertaining and will keep your interest. One person found this helpful. I purchased this book when I was in middle school and it was one of my favorite books then.
I had a few other books by the author and remember really enjoying them; my dad actually purchased a copy of “Goth Chic” to better “understand” me when I was going through that particular phase in my adolescence, so I suppose Baddeley’s books appeal to young old and in between. The book is a decent look through occult history and a fun read.
You could really finish it in a day because its incredibly accessible writing and there are pictures. Who doesn’t appreciate a picture book? I enjoyed this book growing up not because it illuminated much in terms of the occult for me, but because it introduced me to movies and music that I still enjoy today.
I went out and got my first Psychic TV album after reading this book. I could see this book as a Dummy’s Guide for aspiring occultists, but its more appropriate as a fun factually sound read through pop and counter culture. The layout of each page is nicely organized, with lots of pictures, witty little quips, it is well edited, and overall an enjoyable read.
My 12 year-old self enjoyed the hell out of it, and I own it ten years later because it is still just as entertaining.
Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship, and Rock’n’Roll
More of an interview of a rockstar’s More of an interview of a rockstar’s opinion about worshipping Lucifer. Not what I expected Satan seems like a bit of a joke after reading risng. If you want to read something evil, go for Lords of Chaos, about the black metal scene in Norway. Now that’s a great book about satanism and rock music!
It relates a lot of the same information as this book, it just does a better job. Not that this was horrible, it was just kind of mediocre. Buy it and leave it out when your parents are coming to visit! I have never been particularly fearful of Satanism, as much of it has always seemed to be a bit on the silly side.
Most of the people I have seen in the media who call themselves Satanists I have never met a real-life Satanist almost unanimously appear to be either extremely bitter ex-Christians or maladjusted geeks who never outgrew Dungeons and Dragons. However, since there are a lot of people who do fear Satanism and see Satanic world conspiracies everywhere they go, it is a subject most people refuse to view objectively. Gavin Baddeley’s “Lucifer Rising: While it should be noted that Baddeley is a Satanist and is obviously partial to the lifestyle, he maintains a refreshingly objective tone in “Rising.
As Baddeley explains in the introduction to “Rising,” “Satanism is a ‘warts and all’ approach to existence, a determination to explore extremes of both light and dark. Baddeley oftentimes jumps from brief interview to essay to brief interview within the scope of a few pages and his scattershot approach is sometimes wearying, but never boring.
While many of the Satanists interviewed for “Rising” come across as stupid and as weak-minded as any Jimmy Swaggart-follower, there are many especially LaVey who come across as thoughtful and intelligent.
