5.0 out of 5 stars A History on Satanism. 13 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is just what it says, under the title, a companion to the Satanic Bible. Thats not to say that this is merely an extension of the philosophical debate and instructional ramblings found in the 'Bible'. But for anyone interested in knowing more about Satanism and Satanic Ritual throughout history then this is a good read.
Before each ritual there is a few pages that summerise what the ritual means and details its origin. This, in my opinion, is the most interesting part of the book as it gives you more information about past Satanic culture such as the Yzeidis and the Knight Templars satanic rites.
If you liked the Satanic Bible, then buy and read this book to get a better picture of what Satanism is, and what it has become.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Psychodrama, et al. 5 Mar 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anton LaVey wrote this invaluable companion/follow-up to his "Satanic Bible" in 1972 - both books having been mercilessly ripped-off, copied and plagiarized ever since (under the guise of "inspired" or "innovative" works on Satanism). "The Satanic Rituals" is LaVey's collection of genuine, traditional, Magically potent Rituals & Ceremonies from France, Germany, the Middle East and Russia. Also included are outlines for Satanic Baptisms and a Ceremony based on the Cthulhu Mythos of writer HP Lovecraft. Arguably the most formidably powerful - and potentially dangerous - procedure here is referred to in the book as "The Law Of The Trapezoid", or "Die Elektrischen Vorspiele" - the infamous "Trapezoid Ritual". Open to individual adaptation and modification and with a sincere, specific goal in mind, this Ritual is absolutely guaranteed to produce the desired result - most especially with the addition of the particular Enochian Call deemed appropriate for the working.

Perhaps the most infamous Ritual in this collection is "Le Messe Noir" or "Black Mass": long associated with Satanism in the collective (brainwashed) consciousness of the masses and alleged to be the most important and oft performed Satanic Ceremony. Christian-sourced and disseminated visions of child & animal sacrifices and blood-drinking, along with various other depraved, orgiastic, bestial and vile acts, have long been automatically associated with the performance of Black Masses - the proceedings as a whole being envisioned as a sacrilegious, anti-Christian frenzy of unrestrained, ugly blasphemy.

For Anton LaVey, however, there was little indeed to be gained morally, metaphysically or (most importantly) Magically in conducting Black Masses that adhered to a warped, Christian-conceived template.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for newcomers to Satanic Magik. 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A very good book for those Satanists who want to delve deeper into the world of ritualistic Satanic Magik. Written in everyday English, the newcomer to Magik can, with some practice, become quite familiar with basic spells and rituals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book...for Satanists. 9 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a collection of 8 or 9 "dark" rituals either created by LaVey's Church of Satan or taken from different cultures. There's also some introductions and closing remarks on these cultures and the practice of ceremonial magic. And that's basically it.
This ISN'T a book for those who really want to read and learn about Satanism. That would be like trying to learn about Beethoven by looking at the sheet music for his 9th Symphony! Besides, those who believe everything on TV will be sorely disappointed that these rituals don't involve sacrificing animals, drinking blood, and all that other stuff you see in the B-movies!
This is a book for those who have already read The Satanic Bible, and may be interested in aspects and examples of group ritual, or at least in reading a little more about what LaVey has to say about Satanic ceremonial magic. Other occultists might like the book, if anything just to read another man's view of ritual & magick, and to see some more examples of ceremonies taken from different cultures. For me, I know I've seen less informative occult books that cost at least twice as much, so I say it was at least worth my $6.

4.0 out of 5 stars MUST BUY! 7 Feb 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you own any other works by Anton Lavey, then this is a no brainer. It fits well with the satanic bible (also by Lavey) and is full of wonderful ideas, symbols and rituals to be completed.

Fairly cheap for a lot of information so i suggest buying now before the price goes up

4/5 - a good read and very informative. A must for deciples of the dark arts of those interested in following a religion that doesnt involve taking all the fun out of life

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 7 Jan 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If anyone is an atheist like me and have read all the usual books like the God Delusion and fancy something else
strong but pallatable: this is the book for you. It is written as an amusingly jocular and light-hearted piss-take of Christianity. He says what we're all thinking - that no one in history has abided by all the 10 commandments. He has his own equilavent of the commandments and beleives most animals are better and less corrupt than humans. As a vegetarian, this seems quite true. Sers, its defo worth reading if just to see the look on the faces of commuters sitting across from you on the train! It's only cheap - buy it!
