Kerrang Radio reviewed: “The ultimate guide to the influence of Satan in the world of rock music, and all manner of devilish culture. .. Lucifer Risings is a detailed study of Satanism in popular culture. And for the layman, it’s as good a rough guide as you’re likely to find”
Gavin Baddeley states in the introduction: ”..Satanism is neither trivial nor tainted with some moral radiation that it makes it too dangerous to contemplate. Inasmuch as the Western world is still a Christian culture, Satanism is the archetypal counterculture. It’s a vital but neglected aspect of our past, present and – most importantly our future.”
