THE DEVIL'S MUSIC

Comox wrote to my email address:

"That article about the sound in the sky is interesting. I'm a fan of Nicholas Cage too. Maybe you should write more on Hollywood Superstars who in league with the Luciferians"

Sinnex X wrote to me regarding my previous article QUESTION & ANSWER:

"Mind control programs were communicated subliminally? Can you explain more on this"

My Reply:

Oh God, why is it that in 2011 when I write a lot, people don't asked much question and in 2012 when I already announced I want to retire and concentrate only on my novel, lots of questions pouring in?

To Comox and Sinnex X, I spent few hours this morning scanning and converting this article by author Russel Lee in his children book (?) 'True Singapore Ghost Stories 15". I'm not actually prone to reproducing someone else work without their permission. But I'm too tired to do research or write my own stuff for the time being. For the moment, this article is awesome enough eventhough Mr.Russel did failed to mention about the use of technology by the Luciferian to affect our brain pattern.

I hope Mr.Russel wouldn't mind me reproducing his research here. If in the future I received email from Mr.Russel or his publishing house FLAME OF THE FOREST PUBLISHING PTE LTD wanting me to remove this, I will comply.




RUSSELL LEE INVESTIGATES:
THE DEVIL'S MUSIC


There’s a saying that “you are what you eat”. Well, if you like fried food like char kway teow, Kentucky Fried Chicken and the like, the odds are that you’re ample around the waist.

Food is a major health concern nowadays with the number of obese children on the rise in Singapore. So a proper diet and regular exercise are now emphasized in schools.

But should you be careful about what you listen to as well? A recent survey in America showed that teenagers spend an average of 40 hours per week listening to music.

With the advent of affordable MP3 players, I believe that many teenagers in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong spend just as much time listening to music. And music, as we all know, is food for the soul. It contributes to the
inner person we are.

If you take a ride on any MRT train, you are quite likely to see earphones and even monster headphones plugged into the ears of young people.With the volume turned up full blast, they are oblivious to their surroundings and everyone else around them.

On the surface, it looks harmless. Well, maybe there might be some damage to
the eardrums but otherwise what harm is there in listening to music?

Well, my friends, you’ll be surprised at what music can do to a person.



Rock music

The term “rock and roll” was coined in the late 1940s. It’s a catchy form of music with many of the early performers gyrating their pelvises suggestively on stage.

Performers and fans of rock and roll believe in having a good time. Over the years, rock music has become synonymous with drugs, sex, booze and violence.

I could go through the history of this music form right from Chuck Berry to Elvis Presley and The Beatles up to the current day but it would take‘ up an entire book and then some. Indeed, many books have been written about this cultural phenomenon.
Instead, let’s get right to the point.

As the genre evolved, Satanism began to play a huge part in rock music, especially in heavy metal during the 1970s. The singers were clear about who they pledged their allegiance to. When superstar David Bowie was interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine in 1976, he stunned the music world when he said, “Rock has always been the devil’s music... I feel we’re only heralding something even darker than ourselves.”

In the song “The Conjuring” by Megadeth, the lyrics go, “I am the devil’s advocate, a salesman if you will. .. Come join me in my infernal depths.” Rocker Frank Zappa said in an interview, “I’m the devil’s advocate. We have our own worshippers who are called ‘groupies’. Girls will give their bodies to musicians as you would give a sacrifice to a god.”

The bestselling group Metallica, in the song “Jump In The Fire”, commands young people to jump into hell. The lyrics are, “Follow me now my child... do just as I say. Jump by your will or be taken by force, I’ll get you either way. So reach
' down, grab my hand, walk with me through the land. Come home where you belong. So come on, jump in the fire.”

In “The Prince”, Metallica sings, “Angel from below, I wish to sell my soul. Devil take my soul. With diamonds you repay. I don’t care for heaven so don’t look for me to cry. And I’ll burn in hell from the day I die.” ’

These musicians made millions and millions of dollars from their bestselling records. But is it worth the price? I wonder.

Rock star Marilyn Manson was an ordained reverend in the Church of Satan. He mutilated himself on stage and ripped up the Bible during his performances. Some of the words on Manson’s tee-shirts were “KILL YOUR PARENTS” and “I LOVE SATAN”.

Bon Jovi, one of the world’s most popular groups, sings in “Homebound Train”, “When I was just a boy, the devil took my hand. Took me from my home. He made me a man. I’m going down, down, down, down, down. On the homebound train.” In an interview with Smash Hits magazine, Bon Jovi says, “I’d kill my mother for rock and roll. I would sell my soul.”

The group Acheron has no pretenses about A who they worship. In their album entitled The Rites of the Black Mass, they sing, “Glory to thee almighty Satan. We praise thee, we bless thee, we adore thee. Thou art Lord, thou alone, oh mighty
Satan.”

Another group, Manowar, sings in “The Bridge of Death”, “Dark Lord, I summon thee. Demanding the sacred right to burn in hell. Take my lustful soul. Drink my blood as I drink yours. Lucifer is King. Praise Satan!”

Other popular groups like Kiss, AC/DC, Slayer and Pink Floyd penned similar lyrics to worship Satan and they whipped crowds into a frenzy during their highly-charged concerts.

The song “Sympathy for the Devil” by ‘the Rolling Stones, is the official anthem for the Church of Satan. In it, Lucifer speaks in the first person and asks sympathy for all who meet him. Lead singer Mick Jagger claims that Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan and author of the Satanic Bible, helps inspire their music!

Morbid Angel is another group that glorifies Satan in their music. Trey Azagthoh, one of its members, claims to be a real-life vampire and While playing onstage, he actually bites himself and then drinks his own blood!

The lyrics of some of the above songs are just a very, very small sampling of the openly satanic influence in rock music. Believe me, they’re not half as bad as the explicit lyrics of the more extreme groups!

"Hotel California” and its Satanic links

Step into any pub in Singapore With a live band and the chances are that you will hear The Eagles’ “Hotel California” being played.

The album Hotel California has sold almost 20 million Copies, won a best-record Grammy, and is regarded by many rock critics as one of the best albums ever.


Its title track continues to entrance listeners the World over even though the song was released 30 years ago. It’s one of the best-known songs on the planet. But most people have no idea about the real meaning of the song. They just like the haunting rhythm and the catchy chorus, paying little attention to the lyrics.

Many experts from various fields have analysed the song and some have concluded “Hotel California” actually refers to the Church of Satan, which happens to be located in a converted HOTEL on CALIFORNIA Street.

Is that a coincidence? Well, pictured on the inside of the album cover, looking down on the festivities, is none other than Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan.

The Eagles’ manager Larry Salter admitted in the Waco Tribune-Herald in 1982 that The Eagles were involved with the Church of Satan. Although they are known as a soft rock band, one of The Eagles’ songs is “Have a Good Day in Hell”.

Back in the 80s, there was a big fuss over Something called “backward masking” in music. For the uninitiated, backward masking is when you play a cassette or record backwards. You will listen to the music you expect when you play a a record or cassette in the conventional manner.

But if you play it backwards, there would be another version and what you hear could be a different set of lyrics! If you backward mask “Hotel California”, for instance, there’s a stanza which goes, “Satan he hears this. He had me believe.” And if you play Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” in reverse, you will hear, “It’s fun to smoke marijuana” instead of the title.

Some feel that subliminal messages were being relayed to listeners even when you played the song in the normal mode.

Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” is considered an all-time rock classic. Part of the lyrics in the song goes like this, “If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now, it’s just a spring‘ clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there’s still time to change the road you’re on.”

But when you play it in reverse, you hear:

“Oh here’s to my sweet Satan. The one Whose little pathwould make me sad, whose power is Satan. He’ll give those with him 666, there Was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.”

The mark of the beast, "666"

Many readers will know that the number 666 is associated with the devil. The mark of the beast or “666” has been propagated by rock musicians for years.

Iron Maiden recorded “Number of the Beast” some years back. The lyrics, “666, The number of the Beast 666, the one for you and me”.

Iron Maiden band member Bruce Dickinson said in an interview, “We can play with conviction 6 every night, because we totally believe in the music we’re performing.”

On the cover of Black Sabbath’s album entitled Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, there’s a picture of a possessed man. The number 666 can be seen prominently over the bed, where the man is being tormented by demons.

Venom released an album entitled Legions. On the cover, the number 666 is displayed in an inverted pentagram, another symbol of Satan.

They sing in the song called “Possessed”, “I’m possessed by all that is evil. The death of your God, I demand... and sit at Lord Satan’s left hand.”

The lyrics of Acheron’s song “666” goes “Feel a surge pierce your soul. Try and grasp what Christ stole. Take the mark from styx. The number is six, six, six.” Styx is the ancient reference to the river of hell. The group LOVE 666 cuts right to the chase. The title of one of their albums is Please Kill Yourself So I Can Rock.

Other albums that pay tribute to the beast are Danzig’s Satan’s Child 6:66, Aphrodites Child’s 666, Satanic Surfers’ 666 Motor Inn and Paradoxx’s 666.

It doesn’t get any more obvious as to who they have pledged their allegiance to, does it? Now tell me that you can listen to rock and roll and not be affected by it!

Is Ozzy Osbourne possessed by the Devil?

Ozzy turns 58 on Dec 3, 2006, soon after this Book 15 is due to be published. But he remains one of the hottest celebrities around today. His career received a huge boost When MTV 6 launched The Osbournes family show a few years ago. It’s a reality show depicting their normal daily life.

I will always remember Ozzy for biting the head off a bat during one of his concerts in the early 1980s. Rockers are known for their excesses but this one act was unforgettable.

After the 1981 release of his second solo album, Diary of a Madman, the former Black
Sabbath vocalist hit the road for a tour nicknamed “Night of the Living Dead”. Onstage, Ozzy’s trademark performance was to pelt his audience nightly with 10 kilograms of pig intestines and calf livers. Fans would pelt him back with meat and then dead animals.

One night in Des Moines, someone threw a live bat onstage. Ozzy proceeded to bite its head off. That made the headlines and it makes my blood churn to this day. He has lived a colourful life so far, to say the least. Ozzy’s first claim to fame was as the lead singer of the heavy metal group Black Sabbath.

Their first album portrayed a demonic witch on the cover and on the inside, there was an upside down cross, Satanism’s universal symbol.

Sabbath’s song “N.I.B.” (“Nativity in Black”), from their first album, is One of the most openly satanic songs ever recorded. It’s a love song from Satan or Lucifer. In the song, Ozzy sings in the first person as a loving, gift-giving Lucifer. Ozzy invites the listener to take Lucifer’s hand: “Some people say my love cannot be true. Please believe me, my love, and I’ll show you. I will give you those things you thought unreal... Look into my eyes, you will see who I am. My name is Lucifer, please take my hand.”

One of Sabbath’s albums was titled We Sold Our Soul for Rock and Roll. In 1978, due to his heavy drug and alcohol addiction, Ozzy Osbourne was fired as the lead singer of Black Sabbath.

After several years of drinking and suicidal depression, Sharon, Ozzy’s current wife and manager, restored Ozzy’s music career. Since that time, Ozzy has sold over 70 million records.

During Ozzy’s concerts, fans would bring live animals to the concerts such as cats, chickens, frogs and snakes to throw onto the stage. Some would be slaughtered in a rock-induced demonic state. Many animal lovers protested the cruelty but to no avail.

As Sharon was resurrecting Ozzy’s career, she set up a meeting between Ozzy and CBS
Records executives. To start the meeting Sharon planned for Ozzy to quietly release three white doves. Ozzy did release two of the doves. But he bit the head off the third helpless dove.

Ozzy has admitted to shooting up a henhouse full of chickens and he told Guitar Legends that he “went crazy” and sadistically slaughtered his own cats!

“I was taking drugs so much I was a wreck,” he said. “The final straw came when I shot all our cats. We had about 17, and I went crazy and shot them all. My wife found me under the piano in a white suit, a shotgun in one hand and a knife in
the other.”

Ozzy readily acknowledges the likelihood of Satan’s influence. “Sometimes I think that I’m possessed by some outside spirit," he said. "A few years ago, I was convinced of that — I thought I truly was possessed by the devil. I remember sit-ting through The Exorcist a dozen times, saying to myself, 'Yeah, I can relate to that'."

He admits to being a tormented soul, unable to control his actions at times. He also confesses to having a craving for blood.

In a 1982 interview, Ozzy said, "I spent three years in a slaughterhouse, killing cows and pigs and all sorts of things. It got pretty bizarre — I was figuring out all these different ways to kill these animals."

He did figure out how to and he feasted on ox and pig's blood. "I gotta admit, the first time you do it, you get quite a weird feeling," he said. "Well, you kinda stick a knife in there and hold out your cup. After that I got into the habit and started drinking it rather frequently"

The drinking of blood is part of the Satanic Black Mass. It is an extremely demonic act. The drinking of blood is almost certainly an open invitation to Satanic and demonic possession. One of Ozzy's albums is chillingly titled Speak of the Devil. The cover shows a demon-possessed Ozzy complete with fangs and supposedly raw, bloody meat dripping from his mouth. There are many other interesting stories of rock musicians but, for me, Ozzy's penchant for blood takes the cake.

Their songs glorify suicide and have been linked to teen suicides. Their lyrics are scary. In the song "Pos-sessed", they sing, "I'm a prisoner of a demon. It stays with me wherever I go. I can't break away from its hold. This must be my punishment for selling my soul!"

I believe that groups like Suicidal Tendencies have overstepped the limit. Many teens face unique problems. Solutions can be found and suicide is certainly not the answer. According to the book Satanism in America, which is endorsed by the National Criminal Justice Task Force on Occult Related Ritualistic Crimes, hardcore Satanism is "the fastest-growing subculture among America's teens".

Studies taken by the Georgia Police Academy revealed that up to 90 per cent of those involved in Satanism are teenagers. Famous American TV personality Geraldo Rivera said, "It exists and it's flourishing. It's teenagers who are most likely to fall under the spell of Satanism." •

You just can't seem to get away from Satan's influence, it seems. At the 1992 MTV Awards, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, upon receiving their award, said, "First of all, we thank Satan..."

Death Metal

Death Metal, also known as Black Metal, gained popularity in the 1990s and has since spread worldwide. In Asia, this type of music has a large following among the teens in Japan. It's exercising a vast influence on young people through recordings, concerts and the Internet.

Death Metal songs have morbid themes of violence, death, murder, torture, rape, cannibalism, dismemberment and mayhem. Death Metal groups have names like Napalm Death, Dark-throne, Carcass, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Dismember, Deicide, Entombed, Cradle of Filth and Necropolis.

Death Metal is very popular in Scandinavia, particularly Sweden and Norway. Some of the groups also praise Nazism and celebrate pagan gods. All exhibit an anti-Christian philosophy. Deicide has songs about the joy of killing Jesus. Deicide's bass player, Eric Hoffman, says, "Death Metal is Satanic. We relay our music all into Satanism."

The seeds of Death Metal can be traced to the thrash metal groups of the 1980s, such as Slayer, Metallica, Venom, and Anthrax; and to heavy metal groups of the 1970s, such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, which destroyed equipment, praised Satan and promoted sexual promiscuity. Death Metal in Scandinavia has been connected with the burning of many churches.

Since 1992, there have been at least 45 to 60 church fires, near-fires, and attempted arson attacks in Norway alone. In every case that has been solved, the Kripos (Norwegian national investigation department) found that the arsonists were Black Metal "Satanists".

In German, three teenagers, who formed a Death Metal group called Absurd, brutally murdered a 15-year-old classmate in April 1993. The three also called themselves "Children of Satan".


In July 1995, three teenagers in California, who were members of a Death Metal band called Hatred, murdered a 15-year-old girl Elyse Pahler as a Satanic sacrifice. As Elyse prayed to God and milled out for her mother, they stabbed her at least 12 times and left her to bleed to death. They chose Elyse because "her blond hair and blue eyes and virginity made her a perfect sacrifice to the devil", said one of the accused. When the chief investigator asked one of the teens why they committed such a deed, he replied that "it was to receive power from the devil to help them play the guitar better".

In October 1997, 16-year-old Luke Woodham of Pearl, Mississippi, killed his mother by beating her with a baseball bat, stabbing her repeatedly, and slitting her throat. He then went to his high school and calmly opened fire with a rifle on fellow students. He killed two girls and wounded seven. Woodham was part of a group of Death Metal fans who prayed to Satan, admired Hitler and tortured animals.

As I was doing my research, I came across countless other senseless acts of violence committed by young Black Metal fans. Some are too gruesome and gory to be described in this book. Promoting the right values?

If you're a parent reading this, you might heave a huge sigh of relief and think, "Thank goodness my kid isn't into rock music." Well, think again. We are in an age of seductive MTV videos where sex sells.

Mainstream pop acts like The Backstreet Boys, 'NSync, Britney Spears, or The Pussycat Dolls may not be ideal listening material.

Unwanted teen pregnancies, abortions and sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise, even in so-called conservative Asia. Many of today's love songs are really "lust" songs. The teenage years are a confusing time. It's when the physical body begins developing into a young man or young woman. Attraction to the opposite sex becomes a significant part of their young lives.

The Backstreet Boys sing in "Lay Down Beside Me",

"I can't deny it. The way your body swings as I watch you from behind. How could I fly in? Baby let me be the one to hold you. To give you the things I know you need. If you lay down, lay down beside me. You can get all inside me. And I can get all inside you too. If you lay down beside me. You can wake up beside me forever. I give you what you need. Just come to me and get it. Baby, you won't regret it." The problem is most girls do end up regretting it.

The Backstreet Boys also sing of trying to take a young girl's virginity in "Boys Will Be Boys":

"We try to get closer and you always push me away. You tell me it's much too soon, but I just can't help it... Whoa, whoa. Oh oh. Whoa, whoa. Oh. Boys will be boys..." The Backstreet Boys have numerous other songs with similarly suggestive lyrics. But you get the idea.

'N Sync zoomed past the Backstreet Boy's previous record-breaking "first week" sales, like a speeding bullet. Their album No Strings Attached sold 2.41 million copies in its first week. TV Guide, America's equivalent to Singapore's 8 Days, reported that their song, "Digital Get Down", "could be interpreted as hailing the joys of cybersex".

Their lyrics go, "Baby baby, we can do all that we want. We're gettin' nasty nasty, we're getting freaky dreaky. Baby baby we can do more than just talk... I love the things you do for me so late at night. So turn me on yeah. It's like I'm right there next to you yeah."

"Can we get connected? I need some love and affection baby... If you're in the mood and on the phone... I can't wait to see you touch your body girl. Baby, baby we can do more than just talk." Is it any wonder that so many men have been jailed in Singapore recently for preying on under-aged girls?

In "I Just Wanna Be With You", 'NSync doesn't leave much to the imagination. I will not reproduce the lyrics here. Many of their other songs have suggestive sexual lyrics that give the impression that pre-marital sex is okay. By no means are the Backstreet Boys and 'NSync exclusive. Record producers know that sex sells and suggestive lyrics and music videos are part and parcel of today's culture.

In Britney Spears' extremely popular "Hit Me Baby One More Time", the words "Sleep with me. I'm not too young" can be heard when the track is played in reverse. It might have been the producer's idea to drum up publicity.

I just want to say to young readers that one of the most precious gifts you have is your sexual purity. Cherish it and don't be easily influenced by peers who might not hold the same values.



Rap and other forms of music

Rap music, words spoken in rhyme to a pounding rhythm, has been gaining popularity in recent years.

Controversial rapper Eminem has made the biggest headlines, with many accusing him of homophobia and promoting violence against women, amongst other things. No longer are rock and pop stars the ones that young people look up to. Young hip-hop stars and rappers are raking in the big bucks as well.

They project an image that impressionable teens aspire to. They drive fast cars, wear expensive jewellery, date beautiful women and fight if someone offends them. The lyrics in their songs are harsh. They speak of gang life, life in the ghetto, gunfights, alcohol abuse, drug use and they often degrade women.

Gangsta rap is a derivative. There is no cen-sorship in this genre and obscenity is the order of the day. It's often criticized for its graphic sexual content, violent imagery and prejudice against women. But many rappers grew up poor and they are just depicting life as they knew it in the slums Lyrics depicting shootings and time in jail are common. Rappers talk the talk and they walk the walk.

High-profile superstars like Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace) have been gunned down in recent years. Many studies have been done in America on the effect of rap music on teens. They suggest that young people drink more alcohol, particularly malt liquor, because it's promoted by rap stars.

In general, studies have shown that fans of "techno" and reggae music were more likely to do drugs and drink alcohol than people who weren't fans of these types of music. Reggae music is often associated with marijuana use.

Techno music, heard in the urban dance-club scene, has long been linked to "party" drugs such as Ecstasy or crystal meth.



Choose your music

I know that many who enjoy rock music do not worship Satan and do not bite the heads off bats. Neither do all rap fans carry baseball bats to bash heads with. Nor do all techno lovers pop Ecstasy pills and bang their heads all night long.

But there could be unseen forces out there lurking to seek a foothold in our lives. In all my books, I have maintained that there is a battle raging between good and evil for our souls and this battle is raging even when it comes to the music we listen to. The choices we make in life could well affect our ultimate destination.

I have to confess that I love music myself but of the more soothing variety. Music is a gift and like most gifts, it can be abused. As for me, I'd like to echo the Swedish pop group Abba, "Thank you for the music, for giving it to me."
