Speak of the Devil

...And speaking of Satan, here's the great beast himself, Aleister Crowley, Father Perdurabo the founder of Thelema, mystic, adept, O.T.O. leader, and muse of Ozzy's greatest song. Dig into his grainy, drug-fueled wax cylinder recordings. The Great Beast prattles on in his eloquent Englishmen's inflection about all sorts of kooky Crowleyisms. Kind of reminds me of Current 93 without instrumentation and recorded in 1910. Listen for the lyrics appropriated by Douglas P. for Death In June's "Runes and Men."

First thing I thought was Destruction's "Release from Agony" cover.

thanks for the link! ive been following the hearse for a while now, so I had the satanic mass already. I read that anton levy recorded some things under the georges montalba name, have you listened to those? Ive only heard "fantasy for organ", it's very different, really playful organ instrumentals!

I really liked lord asmodeus too! the spooky reading and keyboard work great together!
