Are there are practicing satanists/occultists out there who are actually legit about practicing their craft? I can't find a thread about the dark arts so I decided to make one.

I think there are three strains of people

- those who engage in actual rituals, as connected with some belief they have
- those who have some belief that informs how they see the world in addition to how they validate themselves and set themselves apart from most, but leave it at that; the etherealness of the enterprise is good enough, no need for any sort of hands-on satanism
- those who dig the imagery and that's about it

for the first strain, which you're asking about, I feel like the diehards there eventually move away from "black metal" and just get into artisan candles and leatherbound books?

I think that if someone is serious about these topics, this forum will not be the place to talk about it. When it is not only used in music, that is.

All valid points. Maybe it's not the place to talk about it, but I was trying to see if there was any legit practitioners of the occult. Metal and devil worship/occult have always had a close link to each other.

Quote:
Another factor contributing to our unwillingness to become linked to any form of vulgar “Satanism” is the very unwelcome “support” that is forced upon different relevant branches of the Path of Satan-Lucifer by misguided youth obsessed by “metal music”. Such childish misuse of sacred symbols, sigils and formulae that should be reserved solely for spiritual practices is another reason for why it is a good idea to distant one’s self from the circus that is called “Satanism”.

begets a larger question (same thing from that "war-metal" thread about people in those bands actually participating in war, so many discussions on the internets about NSBM, etc) is the one question no one really talks about

how serious is the subject matter in metal:

- have we tried to mask shock-value with some kind of half baked intellectualism
- message first, music later, or inverse

- Liber ABA
- Liber Null/Psychonaut
- SSOTBME Revised

All 3 good starting points, if you're interested in the mechanisms behind occultism (and thus theistic satanism).

I 'studied' occultism briefly, but decided it wasn't for me. It's just one path out of many, really. Just remember this: there is no dabbling, you either go all the way or you don't. Putting your whole life on it's head is a gamble - a very big one that could easily end in suicide or insanity.

I personally think there are better ways to lead and/or enrich your life, but that's for every person to decide.

Of course no one wants to partake because they are afraid of being laughed at. It was a simple question, but as someone said, maybe it's the wrong forum for it.
