Anton LaVey - The Satanic Mass

UPDATE: This post was re-uploaded 01/11/2014. 

Following the theme we currently have going here, I present to you more satanic goodness. This will be among the last spoken word/audio book albums that I plan on uploading before Halloween, although I do plan to fit in a Poe/Lovecraft mega-post of sorts, which will contain more audio books of course. I'll be following this album up with some classic horror movie scores/soundtracks. From here on out I'm going to keep my words at a minimum so that I will have time to post all the albums that I would like to share before Halloween.

The Satanic Mass was recorded on Friday the 13th in September of 1968 at the Church of Satan in San Francisco, California. This was originally released by the Murgenstrumm label in 1968, and it would mark the first time that an authentic satanic mass was presented to the masses. These recordings were made before the first Satanic Bible was published in December of 1969. The first track is the satanic mass itself. Tracks 3-7 are recitations of verses that would later be included in the Satanic Bible. Track 8, "Hymn of the Satanic Empire", alternatively known as "The Battle Hymn of the Apocalypse" is a bonus track not included with the original vinyl release.

Due to the recording equipment used, the quality of these recordings are poor, although not nearly as bad as those from the Aleister Crowley post which preceded this one. The Satanic Mass is the obvious standout track on this LP, and would be a fantastic track to play for your guests on Halloween. If you don't have a strong interest in LaVey or satanism in general then this album will begin to drag towards the middle. LaVey's delivery of the verses is very monotone, and can make for a tedious listening experience.

Track List:
1. The Satanic Mass
2. Prologue
3. Book of Satan, Verse I
4. Book of Satan, Verse II
5. Book of Satan, Verse III
6. Book of Satan, Verse IV
7. Book of Satan, Verse V
8. Battle Hymn of the Apocalypse (Hymn of the Satanic Empire)

Just a quick note:

Satanism is every bit as ridiculous and contemptible as christianity. Perhaps a bit more so, as you are worshiping the loser of a myth, rather than the overbearing tyrant.

Every Satanist I've ever met was a pathetic little worm. I don't like Christians, either, but at least they have strength in numbers.

Hmmm are you aware that those who follow Anton LaVey's form of Satanism (yes, there are many different variants) do not actually worship Satan as referred to in the Christian Bible? Which means that they do not worship the loser of a myth as you stated. More info on the matter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaVeyan_Satanism

For the record, I consider myself an agnostic. I don't agree with the principles of any form of Satanism. I'm simply posting these albums because they seem appropriate for the Halloween countdown.

This is what now occurs with Rapidshare: Error

Dan: Try a host other than rapidshare. That is why I use sharebee, so that you are not limited to only choice. Also, I just tested the rapidshare link and it appears to be working fine. Perhaps it was some type of technical error on rapidshare's end at the time you were trying to download it?

Thank you for the heads up though.
