What does it take for someone to become a member of MLO? And what does it give?
Noxifer: - For a candidate to be able to become a member of MLO, he/she must wholeheartedly sympathize with the misanthropic and anti-cosmic values of our Order, and also be over 18 years of age. The candidate should already be an Anti-cosmic/Chaos Gnostic Satanist and a practicing black magician, ready to dedicate his/her entire existence to following his/her true will in accordance to the will of the dark gods. The candidate should then contact the Order by writing to one of our contact addresses (that are to be found by those who have the will to search for them), for example by mail, describing his/her convictions and interest for joining MLO.
If the Order find his/her letter serious and intelligent, the candidate will be introduced to a contact person, a brother/sister of the Order and its second grade. The candidate will then for at least six months be subject to an introduction to the basics of MLO, our anti-cosmic magic, philosophy and mythology/demonology. The candidate will also be given instructions in how to build his/her ”black altar” with the ”broken pentagram” in focus.
If the contact person makes the estimation that the candidate has a burning interest in the works of MLO and that he/she in some way can contribute to the development of the other members, he/she will after a minimum of six months be initiated into the first and outer circle of the Order, the Misanthropic Legion or ”The circle of Taninsam”, becoming a member of the Order and its first grade. As a member of the first grade the candidate will have access to more esoteric scriptures and several rituals as well as taking part in most of the activities of the Order like; meetings, feasts and rituals. Before the candidate/member of the first grade can reach the point of becoming a full member (member of the second grade and the first inner circle of MLO, becoming a ”Priest/Priestess of Satan”) he/she must first, for at least one year, show his/her serious devotion and loyalty towards the Order and our evolutionary anti-cosmic work. It is then up to the contact person to estimate if the candidate has the black flame burning inside and would be suited for further membership in MLO.
If the contact person makes a positive estimation the candidate will be initiated into the first inner circle and become a ”Priest/Priestess of Satan” and a member of MLO and its second grade. Thus the journey on the burning path, the path of MLO, begins. ”Per aspra, ad astra!”
Within our Order we look upon each other as different reflections of the dark gods and assist each other with everything that can facilitate our spiritual progress. But we do also assist each other with the more physical and material sides of our anti-cosmic struggle. For example removing everything and everyone who dares to stand in the way of any of our members. We who are Anti-cosmic Satanists are always prepared to kill and die for each other, for we know that no one else in this strange world (in which we are strangers) deserves our loyalty. By the dark links of the black flames we, who serve the raging Chaos, are forever united. HAIL LUCIFUGE ROFOCALE!”
It seems like MLO is pretty active looking for and recruiting new members, how can you make a proper judgement of who can join or not? And have you been contacted by a lot of not worthy people?
Noxifer: - MLO don’t seek new members, new members seek MLO. Mankind consist of human cattle that, because of their own weakness and apathy, have allowed the demiurge to put out their black flames of Chaos, that in the beginning of time was burning inside their souls. It is these sheep that now gladly submit to the cosmic tyranny and the foolish demiurge. It is therefore a matter of course that we also have been contacted by some of these fools, thinking that Satanism is some kind of game. However, we usually sort out the wolves from the lambs quite easily. Contacting MLO with non-serious intentions usually carries its own punishment. It is only about one percent of all those who call themselves Satanists that has a value and it is this secret elite that still carry the divine spark of Chaos inside. The dark tree of wisdom must be watered with the blood of the unworthy. Only then we can harvest the fruit of true knowledge! Hail misanthropy! Hail the elect!
Is it possible to be a member of MLO as well as some other Satanic organization?
Noxifer: - It is possible to be a member of another Satanic organization simultaneously being a member of MLO, only if the philosophy, values and doctrines of the other organization aren’t in opposition to what MLO stand for. For example it is impossible being an active member of ”LaVey’s church” at the same time being a member of MLO. We don’t, however, regard ”LaVey’s church” and its bastard offspring ”Temple of Set” as Satanic organizations. Yet, it must be added that in comparison with the activities of LaVey, Temple of Set is a far more serious and intelligent organization. But they are still not Satanic. Their first mistake was trying to make Setianism and the ruler of darkness, Set, into something accepted and harmless, this way attempting to become a ”big” religion, accepted and acknowledged by the rest of the Judaeo-Christian society. Satanism is not for the apathetic masses, but for the elect that have the will, knowledge and power to transcend the limitations of life and death to become one with the gods of Chaos.
The Satanist spits at both the laws of ”god” and man and follows the formula of our father Satan/Lucifer: ”Chao ab ordo”, which means ”Chaos from order”, and thus follows his own law, which is the true will of the eternal black flame of Chaos. When it comes to the late Mr LaVey and his organization, it is the opinion of no less than every Anti-cosmic and traditional Satanist that LaVey and his ”church” has nothing to do with real Satanism. Their ”role-play Satanism” is nothing but ordinary atheism spiced with some pseudo-occultism and weird fancy dresses. It’s not enough to dress up in black clothing wearing a pentagram around your neck to be able to call yourself a Satanist. Satanism is the tool of the sinister elite for reaching the liberation of the spirit/the black flame (making it immortal) and is not to be defiled by apathetic scum. True Satanism is about constantly representing and acting like the physical manifestations of the dark gods, and through the way we lead our lives act as dark portals and bringers of change, evolution/revolution and Chaos. There hardly exist any other organization practicing true Satanism, and the members of MLO have no interest in joining them either.
Do most of the members have a Black Metal background?
Noxifer: - Most of our members don’t have a Black Metal background. Yet, there have been and still are those in MLO that through music spread our dark messages and the energies that we work with. It is through planting ”the dark seed” in the unconscious of the masses that desired changes in the human psyche can be achieved. It is when the dark seed grows and come out in blossom that Chaos will flourish. Apperiatur terra, et germinet Chaos! On the whole, MLO has got nothing to do with Black Metal!
A lot of people playing in Black Metal bands claim to be Satanists and don’t do anything more about it. Do they form a purpose or do you see them as sheep?
Noxifer: - We and other Anti-cosmic and traditional Satanists have always done what others only dare to sing, write and speak about. Satanism is the religion of the active. It has sadly enough for too long served the purposes of ignorant, and foremost cowardly, fools. What is dead serious to us, seems to be nothing but ”exciting role-play” for others to use for selling their unmusical and worthless records. Still, there has always been a small core of serious Satanists who have been using music in order to spread our message and the disharmonic chaotic energies that they have channelled through their music. Music has always been used by Satanists to open the dark portals of consciousness. Today, there are bands in Sweden, Norway and Holland who through their music and lyrics channel the anti-cosmic energies that MLO act as a portal to. Yet, 99 percent of the scene is completely worthless and has got nothing to do with true Satanism. Lay down your musical instruments and pick up your weapons. It is time for war!
Tenebris: - Speaking about Black Metal, I would like to state that Black Metal being “Satanic music” performed by “Satanists” is nothing but a great illusion. For example; how many of those involved in the black metal movement ten years ago still claim to be Satanists today? Let’s leave this as an open question, ok! I guess we all know the answer anyway. By the way, how many of them were seriously involved in the practice of the black arts? Needless to say, Black Metal was and is in most cases nothing but just another superficial musical fashion. Hence, Black Metal has got nothing to do with the practice of real Satanism, except maybe its imagery to a certain extent, and 99 percent of the bands have no deeper meaning with it. Of course some were and are serious about their Satanic music, but they belong to the last one percent of the scene, and are obviously very rare. Therefore, we have no illusions whatsoever about the black metal scene, and even though some of our members have a Black Metal background our Order as such has got absolutely nothing to do with it.
Tenebris, you were involved in a rather successful band yourself. How come you became more interested in Satanism than (Black) Metal. How important is Metal to you these days?
Tenebris: - Music and Satanism are obviously two completely different things, but when it comes to my song writing being a Satanist naturally colours my music in an extraordinary dark manner. I see my music and lyrics as a way of expressing both my conscious and subconscious, giving praise to the dark. Thus, writing music for me is a spiritual experience. Something dark and sacred. However, I experienced a vast gap between what I personally was doing and what was actually happening around me with the torrent of Black Metal becoming just another fashion for human sheep wanting something ”extreme” or ”exciting” to indulge in. I was sick of all these so-called ”Black Metal Satanists” letting music come in first place and Satanism in second, or third, or rather no place at all. When confronted, very few of these guys proved to have a sincere and genuine need or interest to experience the dark for real (Satanism, black magic and occultism). It was all just talk, at its best. I began to see through the masks these people were wearing and I figured I didn’t have much in common with them after all. Disillusioned, I gradually outdistanced myself to this ”scene”, starting to cultivate a deeper relationship with Satanists of the more serious kind, forming a brotherhood dedicated to the sincere worship of Lucifer and the powers of Chaos. This, however, didn’t mean that I stopped writing or listening to music. Of course I still enjoy all that. It rather meant that I came to focus on my magical studies/works and my journey on the left hand path together with brothers and sisters, whose black flame was burning just like mine.
Have you had a lot of people interested in joining who have chickened out?
Noxifer: - In the early days of MLO we came in touch with certain unworthy people who pretended to be something they never could be. When these scum, that we within our Order now humorously refer to as ”the living dead”, were exposed to different situations that could be a little dangerous, demanding and really Satanic, they turned their backs on the Order, by running away, telling too much about the activities of our Order to uninitiated and in certain cases even by testifying against certain members of the Order during various trials. However, these weak whores taught us to have a lot heavier demands on those who want to join the Order. By learning from our mistakes we became stronger. These unworthy traitors are of course familiar with the fact that there only is one punishment for infiltrators, traitors and those who consciously stand in our way. Yet, there are more important things to do than thinking about these unworthy pigs. These “living dead” will in course of time surely get to know the wrath of Alastor! ”God ” maybe forgives, but MLO don’t! Dies irae, dies illa, solvet saeclum in favilla! Vocamus te aeshma-diva!
There are already a lot of so-called Satanic organizations out there, what makes MLO different?
Noxifer: - We don’t agree at all with this statement, but we agree with the fact that there are many who claim to be ”Satanists” and members of different ”Satanic” organizations. The few serious Satanic Orders that exist are usually secret until some member makes a mistake and is arrested for some crime against the human laws. It is first then that these groups, against their will, attracts attention from the Judaeo-Christian media. A real Satanic Order can never, because of the nature of the Satanic work, be open to the public and it could never be possible to join such an Order only by paying a member fee. All humans are equally worthless, until they have proven the contrary. What makes MLO different to the organizations who claim to be Satanic, is that MLO truly is a Satanic organization. To the contrary of all worthless scum, we practice what we preach and do everything to reach our Satanic goals. No price is too high and all means are allowed. MLO is Anti-cosmic Satanism! We are the Satanic elite.
A lot of Satanic cults deny the existence of a personified Satan. Why do these people call themselves Satanists when they don’t believe in that?
Noxifer: - MLO see Satan, Lucifer, Set, Apep, Kingu, Typhon, Ahriman, Samael, The black light, Angra Mainyu, Surt, Loke, Diabolus and Shaitan as some of the names describing the driving force of the raging Chaos, which counteract and fight the demiurge and the cosmic order. When the primal Chaos was defiled by the demiurge’s existence and the order and stagnation he created, the power that, inter alia, is called Satan was the first anti-cosmic current emanating from the post-cosmic raging Chaos. This anti-cosmic emanation, which is our father Satan, was created by the raging Chaos to act as the antithesis to the demiurge and his creating of form from formlessness, light from darkness and order from chaos. Satan/Lucifer is the external and eternal aspect of the anti-cosmic and sinister impulses, which constitute the deepest essence of our inner black flames. As a result of this, we are through the inner portals of the black chaos fire forever linked and united with our lord Lucifer/Satan. Through us, parts of the power that is Satan have access to the cosmic plane, while this emanation that we call Satan (the first out of eleven anti-cosmic emanations) itself is based outside the barriers of cosmos and with its raging darkness prevent further expansion of cosmos. We are Satan’s living portals that through our thoughts, feelings and actions channel his energies into cosmos, in that way poisoning and slowly killing the world’s soul. In nomine Satan, ob-umbro anima mundi! Thus, Satan is both an inner and an external power whose existence is completely independent of the human psyche.
The names, symbols and myths that we use to describe the first offspring of the raging Chaos, are all human inventions in order to describe the indescribable, that we only can reach acquaintance with through true contact. But the power, that we call Satan, is much older than the human consciousness. Those who have been in spiritual contact with the energies of our father cannot deny his existence, and those who never have enjoyed the brilliant darkness and power of our father have neither any right to call themselves Satanists. The blind fools who call themselves Satanists without believing in the existence of the Satanic current, are misled lambs that we, the wolves of Satan, shall tear apart. Ad majorem Luciferi gloriam! The day of wrath draws near!”
Why is Christianity such a big target?
Noxifer: - Christianity is an equally big target as all other pro-cosmic and demiurge-worshipping religions. The people who gladly submit to the enslavement of the slave religions, like for instance Christianity, have completely melted together with the cosmic energies, and the black fire that once was burning inside their souls was extinguished a long time ago. The pro-cosmic religions serve the purposes of the demiurge and their function is to forever put out all black chaos flames that are burning within cosmos. This detestable world that we live in today is shaped by the moral values of the slave religions, and that fact alone should make all of those with the smallest ounce of a chaos fire inside to fight against these religions and burn all their houses of lies to ashes.
The demiurge, that by the pro-cosmic religions and their priests have been called Atum-Ra, Marduk, Jahve, Allah, Ahura-Mazda, Zeus and so on, make use of his priests similarly to the way that Satan make use of us. It is therefore important to fight these weak insects both physically and spiritually, and in Satan’s name crush them. Christianity is an anti-evolutionary religion, with the objective of preventing the development of the strong, pulling them down to the level of the weak. Christianity is the opposite of everything that strengthens the spirit and is only good for killing what little that is beautiful, noble and honourable in this filthy world. The same goes for judaism and Islam. We therefore support everyone, who through their concrete actions, show their hatred against these filthy slave religions. Burn their churches and kill their priests!”
Is there an easy way to describe the belief of MLO?
Noxifer: - It is not possible for us to describe our convictions in a briefer way than we’ve already done in this interview, but it will soon be possible, for those who are interested in catching a glimpse into the Anti-cosmic Chaos Gnosticism and black magic of MLO, to order a handbook in Anti-cosmic Satanism. The book is called ”Liber Azerate The Book of the Raging Chaos” and it is written by MLO Grand Master, Frater Nemidial. It is scheduled for release the 31st of October 2002, for all those who wish to enter the path of the black dragon. For the first time the ”forbidden rites” will be accessible, ready to awaken the black flame of Chaos inside the elect, elevating them to the thrones of darkness!
What is the main purpose for MLO and how realistic is that goal?
Noxifer: - The main purpose of MLO is anti-cosmic evolution. Also the fortification, and in some cases the reawakening, of the black flame of Chaos. Our goal is to unite the elect who consciously walk the path of the black dragon (the Transcendental Anti-cosmic Satanism). To concentrate the powers of the eternal black flame and burn further black holes in the world’s soul (anima mundi) and the collective unconscious of mankind, to open new dark portals to Chaos, this way contributing to the beginning of the endless dark aeon and the invasion of cosmos by the disharmonic and sinister energies. Also, one of the most important goals of MLO is ”Chaos gnosis” (wisdom/understanding of Chaos). It is only through interchange of thoughts and ideas with likeminded people as well as the study of the esoteric dark doctrines and the channelling of the anti-cosmic energies into one’s own spirit, that we can reach wisdom and open the eyes of the blind dragon Tanin’iver and see through all cosmic lies, weaknesses and illusions, and in that way transcend order and become one with Chaos. MLO serve the wrath of the ancient gods and we prepare ourselves, by means of our spiritual work, for the final war when the eleven ones ultimately shall defeat the ten. When the inner darkness is strong enough to defeat both the internal and external light, the parts of the divine spark which are imprisoned inside the demiurge’s creation will be set free. MLO intend to, by means of our work, strengthen the inner darkness of our members, this way darkening the world’s soul. This goal is very realistic! As above, so below!”
What kind of rituals do you do? How often is that organized?
Noxifer: - MLO perform both ceremonial and hermetic rituals, with the purpose of bringing about such changes, with the dark, sinister and chaotic energies that are generated, concentrated and directed, that corresponds to the will of our Order and the dark gods. MLO use the power of the will and the anti-cosmic current to obtain both spiritual and worldly power, and also to remove all obstacles that the forces of the light might place in our way. In general, most of the rituals and ceremonies of MLO derive from the Sumerian chaos gnosticism, the Draconian Setianism and the Kliffotic black magic.
For example we practice rituals of invocation to become possessed by our demonic gods and acquaint with their wisdom and power. We practice rituals of evocation to call forth and manifest the dark and anti-cosmic energies on the physical plane. We practice rituals of purification to banish the unwanted and weakening energies with which the light attack us. We practice rituals of initiation to initiate different stages of the burning path and to bring us together with different magickal currents. We practice power rituals to strengthen the spirit and to awaken the black dragon (the black kundalini). We practice rituals of malediction to weaken, torment, drive insane, vampirise, punish and kill our enemies.
According to ancient tradition, blood rituals are also practiced within the Anti-cosmic Satanism. Vast amounts of energies (i.e. the life-force) can be directed to different purposes. For example; to fortify a specific current or keeping the energy inside a talisman. Giving away the energy as a gift to one of the dark gods, this way strengthening its manifestation on the physical plane, or using the energy to make new cracks in the astral barriers to open new dark portals. Blood rituals also serve many other purposes. Like for example; building strength of character and a strong identification with the dark powers in those who practice these rituals. Letting them come in true contact with darkness, this way contributing to the eclipse of their souls and the strengthening of their Satanic predator mentality. It is this mentality that separates man from the superhuman and the hunter from the prey. Even lesser blood rituals can be used, and are most often so during these rituals, but then the released energies are not as strong.
We also want to state that all so-called Satanists who deny blood rituals as a part of the true Satanism are false and ignorant fools who don’t have a clue of what they’re talking about. Satanism is all about crossing borders and about developing into a god of darkness. To be able to reach this state the Satanist must both have the ability to create and to destroy.
MLO also practices other kinds of rituals and ceremonies, in accordance to the Satanic will and the black flame, to effect such changes in the world that further support our Order and the anti-cosmic evolution on a large scale. These rituals are held as often as it’s necessary, and being Anti-cosmic Satanists we, for example, don’t find it necessary to wait for any meaningless pagan feast to hold our black rites, but practice our dark art/science whenever we wish to do so. Si libet, liket!”
What was the story on MLO and The True Satanist Horde, what was the link there?
Tenebris: - The True Satanist Horde had, contrary to its name, unfortunately nothing to do with real Satanism and its practice. They of course claimed to be Satanists but just playing black metal, wearing corpse paint and inverted crosses doesn’t, however, make a Satanist. It was all just a lot of talk and they had gotten away with that for years. So when MLO had formed back in ’95 we asked the guys if they were interested in the real deal. Obviously they were not!
How important was the link to the Norwegian Inner Circle?
Tenebris: - Personally, I can say that it meant a lot as long as it lasted. Back then, in 1991, things mainly concerned black metal and ideological Satanism (not so much practical Satanism, but anyway...) and we were all burning for it! Like the most natural thing the Black Circle (or the Inner Circle if you like) was formed, and the plans were huge! It grew quickly to become some sort of black metal army. It was however rather poorly organized and kind of stood and fell with Euronymous and his shop. Therefore, it vanished with his death in ’93 and all arrests at that time. Anyhow, these years were somewhat intense and I can look back on them with a smile on my lips. Sadly enough, many people involved at the time betrayed their ideals and lost their interest when things fell apart. Like it was nothing more than a hype of temporary nature.
An interesting story is the one about IT (Abruptum/Ophthalamia), who was at one time running The True Satanist Horde. There are so many rumours concerning him. That he chickened out and left for Finland. Do you know anything about that?
Noxifer: - Life is full of disappointments and the situation you’re asking about was one of them. Don’t ask the devil for a dance if you’re not prepared to dance until death!
Are there any organizations that MLO support or even work together with?
Noxifer: - One year after some MLO members ended up in prison, an outlaw organisation and brotherhood called Werewolf Legion was formed. WL, which consists mainly of non-Satanists, has a close collaboration with MLO and even though most of its members aren’t Satanists, they are all warriors, outlaws and misanthropes. F.T.L! There are also plans to start up WL in Norway and Holland, for it is in these countries (besides Sweden) that MLO is established. The only Satanic organization that we support is O.N.A. and its subsections. We also support a certain American ”Order of vampires” that, to the contrary of all silly ”role-play-vampires”, practice true vampirism. Besides these ”occult” organizations we also support all true outlaw organizations. Hail MLO! Hail WL! Hail Satan!
