Through The Flames...

13 Windows Luciferic
Each one tells a tale
Inlain with what's happened here
13 Windows of Infernalight
Stained glass casting eerie spellglow
Transmutate by Sorath's sight
Fearsome shifting shadowlight
Season to season, down below


13 Windows made of blood, bone, & hellfire
Kaleidoscopic mesmerizing
Wisps through the air
All through the day & night
Symbols, spells, history
Dawn & Dusk permutations
Nightmares & Dreams revelation
All One timelessness


13 windows, 13 rooms
Changing shape within the ornate frames
Figures moving within these worlds
Casting visions through the flames
The Goat of A Thousand Young presiding
The levels of progression...


13 windows, glimpses of Hell 
A different scene according to the date
13 Windows, casting a spell
13 Windows to the 'soul'...
If you look closely, you'll find yourself there!

F o r e v e r . . . 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In each room, there is at least one stained glass windowpane multi-tinted in flames with transmutating images therein surrounding ornate frames, depicting diabolical deeds upon certain nefarious dates which occurred in that room. Each window is topped with a ramlike pediment recognized by those who know as Amon-Baphomet, The Bucranium of The Sun, the Moon, the stars...

The 13th Moon courses the Seasons in Hell
Every month another face, signs & symbols
Specters move across the face of the night
Draegon Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Flesh incarnate
Mytheological transmutations
Lycanthropic, Anthropomorphic
Through 13th Dimensions
Hybrid legends come alive
Devil's Mark branded upon flesh at birth

THE 13TH SIGN...
Sign of The Dragon
Consuming the others
THE 13TH SIGN
Sign of The Beast immortal
666 Hellemental

When Luna pairs with Lucifer in the W/Eastern sky
Hecate, Lilith, Sin, Persephone
Baphomet ascends the hellvens
Seated upon the Firmament Majestic

We are the 13th Sign
The Face of The Dragon upon the 13th Moon
Wings outstretched upon the nocturne tide
Draconian Black Blood
Breathing hellfire with words and deeds
Bloodmoon, blacksun, alignment complete
Upon the 13th night... 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The alignment coincides above The House as the conditions are right on this 13th night to bring forth the denizens of the netheregions said to reside deep wthin the bowels of The House, where The Gates of Hell part. The 13th Sign reveals itself to be that of The Mighty Black Dragon, corresponding with the race of The Dragon incarnate - those who have been before, are now, and shall be again assemble in the churning shadows 'neath hidden chambers, to enact forbidden rites unknown to common mortals.

13 drops into The Goblets each
Awaiting greedy jaws & claws
13 Shadows possessing all who drink
The whirlpool draws you in
Mind swimming in The Devil's brine
Lift high The Chalice, drink deeply of The Wine
The Powers of Darkness are inside!
Infernal Bliss enrapturing, encircling
Devils embracing, enlacing, churning
Lost in The Potion, spinning down
The names & keys are revealed
In the air, in your mind, in the philter's tide
The faces of the Thirteen...
 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Straight from The Cauldron's brew, The 13 Goblets are filled and lifted towards the ancient sigil, which glows an eerie phosphorescence, joining the candleabras and chandelier in the gloomy room, upon which hangs a serpent. 13 robed forms in attendance, imbibing the Powerful elixir bestowing Strength, immortality.

13 Mirrors in the dark
Single candle flame
Flickering shadows come alive
Cold touch upon your flesh
Gazing at reflections deep into your mind
One by one, the masks come forth
Melting into one, the reflection resonance
From the corners of your eyes...

Etch the symbol on the glass with The sinister Horns
The portal opens wide
Pouring forth from the frame
They have been called from beyond
The Grave or The Gates of Hell
Necromancy, Demonology
By The Books, burning words upon the page...

Tapping on the glass, scratching at the window
The feeling of dread
The Presence arrives
They are here, they are here!

13 Mirrors in each room
13 Mirrors reflect doom
13 eyes to watch you
Passing through the pane
Will you join them on the other side...? 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

There are 13 mirrors within each of the 13 rooms in Blackthorne Manor. Each serve as a veritable Portalways for either Demonic summoning, necromantic communication, or clairevoyant devices for Witchcraft. Inscribing The Pentagram thereupon the glass itself activates these for these purposes, which can then operate as a two-way communication oracle as well as pathway.

Krampus Rising

Satanalia
As the sun goes down...

The Bells of Hell resound
The Gates are open... tonight
Emerging from the frost, they come

 

Nightmares unleashed
Across the earth, shadows rise
For a season at a time
From Hallow's Evil to Yuletide
In the darkness of the mind

 

Scraping claws
Grinding jaws
Horns arching to the sky
Hissing brimstone, howling winds

Unholy procession
Demonic possession
Bonefire torchlight
Lanterns of The West

 

KRAMPUS RISING
Whips & chains
KRAMPUS RISING
Dragging souls to Hades' flames

Earth quake hooves
Closer... behind... closer... nearer
The hoofbeats of your heart

 

Hypnogogic gaze
Osculation graze
Feasting on the nubile flesh
Trick or treated as you may

 

Red eyes glowing in the night
Filling hearts and minds with fright
Infernal blessing of the birch
Bloodied by the sacrifice

 

Before the dawning
Into the Pit as black as pitch
Leaving The Devil's mark
Forever taken away

 

KRAMPUS RISING
Up from Hell
KRAMPUS RISING
Casts The Spell
KRAMPUS RISING
Hear the bells...

 

 

...Fear the bells.

Autumnal Equinox XLIX A.S.

Folder: 
Seasons In Hell

 

 

 

Autumnal Equinox XLIX

As The Devil's Fog creeps in, we enter into Season Belial with quaking hooves rising up from cavernous depths, coinciding with heartbeats running with the passions of the Strong and the fears of the weak.

 

The shadow of Samhain sweeps the land with dreadful shapes, bringing nefarious joy to the children of darkness; while the herd glimpse but a season into the shadow side of their hidden minds, made manifest through necromantic reflections.

 

The flames of Hell reveal secrets lain occult, enlightening those who seek the mysteries of the black earth, marvels to behold, burning in mind and body, purifying with carnal bliss. The Season of The Beast yields a cornucopia of delightfully sinful pleasures for those who take The Devil's hand, the carnal blessings of the flesh. Pleasures and treasures, tricks and treats to have and to hold.

 

Leaves blown from skeletal trees in the cool, sweetly burning winds of timeless evocation, enhancing the Magic flow, as Baphomet's eyes glisten in the candle light, amidst the music of the eternal night. ∞

 

 

 

Shemhamforash! Hail Satan! So It Is Done.


In Nomine Satanas,

Devil's Gate

Folder: 
Devil's Gate

Beneath hell bridge
The tunnel draws you in
By catacomb echoes
To the woods amidst the howls
The stream flows to Belial's face
There, the doorway awaits...

Hooded shadows move in the darkness
Within the forest deep below
'Neath the moon, a silver rictus
Flames aflicker in their hands
The Bridge To Hell has brought you here...

By the gaze of The Demon
Incantations, glowing symbols
Black Altar set before The Gate
Trapezoid traced in the air
Magic thick withIn this place
Much too much for most to bear
She faints into the chair...

An iron gate between two torches
A pyramid points to Hell
The Consort & The Beast enthroned
Invoking energy, surrounding force
Moonchild come to be
A scarlet portal of the flesh
Scarlet Daemon Goddess, Lilith
The Daemonseed possessed...

The earth trembles, 'something' stirs within
By this Sorcery triumphant
The stone face seems to move in place
The Portal shifts & churns
Can you hear the breathing?
The Eye opens, The Gate parts
Black Shadow in the night...
Encircles, suspended 'time'
The air is heavy with evil sensation

"Something" came through...
Within Me, within you...

Bridge To Hell

Folder: 
Devil's Gate

On the dark horizon
At dusk the sun descends into The Abyss
Blackened with the flames of Hell
Satan spreads His wings of night
Coursing across the Black Earth
On road of triple six
Leads to a bridge between the worlds...

The Bridge To Hell is calling...

Grim Reaper is your guide
Voices on the wind
Calling your name into the fog
Breathe in The Demon's breath
Empowered or consumed...

The Bridge To Hell is calling...

Another sacrifice
Plunges into The Pit
Headlong into the black
Mesmerizing spectral lights
Casts a ghostly pallor
Compelling... impelling...
Now there's no turning back
Will you make it to The Other Side?

December 13, 1913
A monster was erected
With legs of iron and steel
Body of stone
Then the blood began to flow
In throes of lamentation
Broken flesh and bone
Taken by the land...

The Bridge To Hell...
It breathes...
The Bridge To Hell...
It feeds...

Who is that by the side of the road?
In Death's embrace?
Forever gone, but yet returned
Haunting The Night eternal
Where they met their fate
Did you see your face?
Down beneath the archways
The wilderness below
At Devil's Gate...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The hauntingly beautiful bridge is infamous for a continuing series of suicides since its birth in 1913, but it was after this rite that numbers multiplied dramatically, as if the area was somehow more so drawing those so inclined, and perhaps not so much so, towards their doom. It has been postulated that these, along with the disappearances, may be "sacrifices" to feed the dark forces released on the day of the ritual.

It is said that the very archways of this veritable "Hell Bridge", particularly that framing Devil's Gate, may serve as an entryway for nefarious energies.
