done research on the subjects written in the book. I found the book to be very informative, it kept my interest 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 page 126, he lists 3 albums by the Black Metal band Bathory. Raise the Dead, The Return,
and Under The Sign of the Black Mark. Bathory's first album was simply titled "Bathory", not Raise The Dead!
On page 204, there's a picture of an early lineup of Mayhem, the definitive lineup if you will. The members in the
picture are from left to right, Necrobutcher, HellHammer, Dead, and Euronymous. Despite these few errors, the
book is very entertaining and will keep your interest. I suggest reading the Satanic Bible and The Satanic Scriptures
to get a better understanding of Satanism.
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.
