Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship, and RocknRoll by Gavin BaddeleyIt’s only natural that rock and roll — “the devil’s music” — and Satanism should be intimately linked. Lucifer Rising explores this unique cultural confluence. Divided into three parts, the book first traces the history of Satanism, from the birth of the Black Mass through the fashionable sinners of the Hellfire Club. The second section examines Satanism in the 20th century, including Aleister Crowley, the formation of the Church of Satan, the Manson Family, and the rise of occult-influenced bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The book’s third part looks at the new waves of Thrash Metal, Death Metal, and the Scandinavian Black Metal scene; the murder case surrounding the band Burzum; the neo-Nazi element; and the religious right’s courtroom pursuit of heavy metal. Lavishly illustrated throughout with graphics, medieval woodcarvings, and stunning photographs, the book also contains entertainingly cynical comment from Anton LaVey, in one of his last in-depth interviews.
What Does the Bible Say About Music? What Should We Listen To?
What Should We Listen To? S ome like Rock and Roll, others like the traditional church hymns. Still others choose more contemporary Christian worship songs , while some choose the near-heavy metal Christian rock. Are there some principles and guidelines a believer can follow or are there liberties or grace that allows Christians to listen to what they like? I had a former pastor of a traditional and very conservative Southern Baptist church that loved contemporary Christian rock music to worship with. He also loved Molley Hatchet — a heavy dose of Rock and Roll. Some of the church members criticized him for his love of Rock and Roll music.

Question: What is wrong with worldly, non Christian rock music? It has ungodly themes of rebellion, drugs, sex, and demons. Rock music is addictive as it causes the brain to release opiates. The body actually chooses that which is destructive over that which is therapeutic. All Rock Music originates from the Devil.
