Item Description
In 1968 Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan released the first recording of a Satanic Ritual. This disc is a reissue of that album, with extensive liner notes and new artwork. The first track is The Satanic Mass, performed in the building that served as the home and original location of the Church of Satan led by Anton LaVey on Friday the 13th in September of Year III Anno Satanas (1968). Tracks 2-7 are of LaVey reciting selections from the Satanic Bible, much of which was inspired by Ragnar Redbeards book “Might Is Right”. There is a bonus track not on the original vinyl release called “The Hymn of the Satanic Empire, or The Battle Hymn of the Apocalypse”. You can find the score of this song in LaVey’s “The Devil’s Notebook”.
