Ep. 112: Anton LaVey: Carl Abrahamsson Gives the Devil His Due
Ultraculture With Jason Louv
One of privileged few who spent time with the “Black Pope” in the last decade of his life, Carl Abrahamsson met Anton LaVey in 1989, sparking an “infernally” empowering friendship. In his new book on LaVey - "Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan" - Abrahamsson explores what LaVey was really about, where he came from, and how he shaped the esoteric landscape of the 1960s. Carl Abrahamsson is a Swedish writer, publisher, filmmaker, photographer and musician. He has written extensively about "occulture" – how occultism and hidden ideas interact with our general culture (literature, cinema, music, art etc). Abrahamsson also writes fiction and journalism. He is the editor and publisher of the annual magico-anthropological journal The Fenris Wolf, and the founder of the publishing company Trapart Books.

Interview With An Exorcist — Bob Larson (Satanism, Anton Lavey and Deliverance Ministry)
The TruthSeekah Podcast
Exorcist Bob Larson sits down with TruthSeekah and speaks about the reality of the demonic realm, Satanism, Anton Lavey and why many Christians don’t believe in demons anymore. Bob talks about his origin story and how he got started in the realm of exorcisms, and how this practice was shunned by most of the churches that he would attend. Back in the 80s and early 90s, this was not a popular topic in Christianity.Bob made this subject popular by shedding light on the satanic origins of many things in pop culture. Bob Larson had a nationally syndicated radio show called “Talk Back With Bob Larson” where he opened the phone lines and let people call in, ask question and or debate. Many times Satanist would call in and mock Bob, God and Christ, but this type of media had not been seen before, especially in the Christian realm.Bob Larson has written over 40 books, all jam packed with information about world religions and occult practices. Now, (because of the work that Bob has done) the door is opened for many up-and-coming YouTubers and Deliverance Ministries such as Daniel Adams and The Supernatural Life, Vlad, Isaiah Saldivar and Brother Wayne Ministries.For those who are struggling with demonic oppression or possession or would like to be trained in deliverance ministry, be sure to check out Bob Larson’s website at https://boblarson.org/🌠 Join TruthSeekah's Online School of the Mystics!➡️ https://www.Patreon.com/join/TruthSeekah✅ Get access to 40+ video lessons + Weekly LIVE calls!✅ Learn to connect with Spirit and walk in freedom! ✅ School of the Mystics Thursdays 7pm CST✅ Sunday Morning Mystic Circle Session 9am CST✅ Worldwide Online Community!✅ Spiritual Development!✅ Get behind the scenes access!✅ Get Access To The ZOOM Spiritual Development Sessions!✅ Courses, Monthly Webinars, Prayer, Meditation, Discussion✅ TruthSeekah's Full Music Discography & Unreleased Music✅ TruthSeekah's Meditation Library➡️ Reserve your spot! https://patreon.com/join/truthseekah📚 Order TruthSeekah's Book: Spirit Realm: Angels Demons, Spirits and the Sovereignty of God (Foreword by Jordan Maxwell) ➡️ https://amzn.to/31g9ydR⭐️ Get 2 FREE Amazing Meditations➡️ https://www.truthseekah.com/free-meditation🌟 Private 1 On 1 Coaching with TruthSeekah➡️ https://www.TruthSeekah.com/session🌟 Visit our website ➡️ https://TruthSeekah.com🌟 Listen to the podcast: Apple Podcasts ➡️ https://goo.gl/1q5UftSpotify ➡️ https://shorturl.at/bptBDAndroid Podcasts ➡️ https://goo.gl/kgRVzm🌟Follow: Facebook ➡️ https://www.facebook.com/TruthSeekahInstagram ➡️ http://www.instagram.com/truthseekahTwitter ➡️ https://twitter.com/TruthSeekah🅿DONATE VIA PAYPAL➡️ http://www.Paypal.me/TruthSeekah ➡️ http://www.TruthSeekah.com/DonateCashApp https://cash.app/$truthseekah7 Venmo https://venmo.com/truthseekah📧 Send Mail To: TruthSeekah1204 Shelton Beach Road Ste 3 # 333, Saraland, AL 36571USA
S17 Ep39: Encountering Anton LaVey and The Church of Satan w/Carl Abrahamsson
Today, Darkness Radio is Encountering Anton LaVey and The Church of Satan with Carl Abrahamsson! Carl Abrahamsson was a young man in Sweden who quickly became fascinated by the magic act of Anton LaVey and his appearances in different occult magazines in his native land. He went from creating a fanzine and band, to making a song dedicated to LaVey to soon interacting with him and getting contributions of articles from LaVey to Carl's Newsletter. Carl then struck up a friendship with LaVey towards the end of his life that gave him a unique retrospective of the man behind the Church of Satan. Carl Abrahamsson joins us today to talk about that relationship, the legacy he has left behind, and what made LaVey the cult of personality that he was. Get the book, "Anton LaVey and The Church of Satan: Infernal Wisdom from the Devil's Den" here: https://bit.ly/3Dx4S8b To find out more about Carl Abrahamsson, check out these links: https://www.carlabrahamsson.com/ https://vimeo.com/ondemand/intothedevilsden https://www.patreon.com/vanessa23carl Darkness Radio is partnering up with the UFO Disclosure Symposium!

Everyone's favourite Swedish polymath returns to the show for a discussion about the Black Pope, Anton LaVey, himself. This is on the occasion of the release of Carl's latest book, Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan. It's the biography LaVey boths needs and deserves. So we talk a little bit about his life but mostly we examine his legacy, what he might think of today's cancel culture and whether or not the ol' devil has got his dues yet. It's a great chat and had both Carl and I reminiscing about our own wayward youths. Enjoy! Show Notes Get the book here. (It's also available as an audiobook.) Follow Carl's work here.

We go OFF THE RAILS here. Returning guests Jack Steiger and Max Antonucci don't disappoint as they fill in for LP and we can discuss the chaotic life of Anton LaVey, the founder of the American Church of Satan. It get's weird and fast. Enjoy.
Already in The Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey had shown considerable creativity. Concepts like "Psychic Vampire" and "The Balance Factor" soon became household terms in America and the rest of the world. His description of the ritual space as an "Intellectual Decompression Chamber" also hit home outside the strictly Satanic perimeters. As did the slightly later term "Occultnik", signifying a person who is lost within old structures of occultism without being able to see what's really of use on a practical, material level. LaVey’s initial key works, The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals, are great examples of creative appropriation and reformulation. But the two volumes of essays and maxims that followed much later, ie The Devil's Notebook and Satan Speaks, genuinely contain the essence of LaVey's wit and creativity. In these books, we find many fascinating topics: the integration of emotionally resonant music, stressing the ego, encouraging a sense of humour, artificial human companions, the total environment, the archetype of the villain, the third side of truth and much more.

He invented the Satanic Church to shock people, but he had an immeasurable impact on our culture. In the 1960s, Anton LaVey founded the Church or Satan, wrote the Satanic Bible, and became one of the most infamous figures in history. But so many people wildly misunderstand what LaVey and the Church of Satan was about. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the strange world of Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan.--This Week's Listener Memes:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tw7vq8kb9zhmdon/AAArjNpAHAFDHXjuwQ2zjhFwa?dl=0--Pick up some Deep Cuts T-Shirts and other merch!https://bit.ly/deepcutsmerch--Get the official Deep Cuts shoulder patch!http://bit.ly/deepcuts_patch--Listen to our new album, a 9 song rock opera about the rise and fall of Napster!https://open.spotify.com/album/63C5uu1tkzZ2FhfsrSSf5s?si=q4WItoNmRUeM159TxKLWew--Additional incidental music credits:The Deadboy DetectivesD.Catalano https://wekeepoddhours.bandcamp.com Learn more about your ad choices.
