“But KNOW this, that in the last days perilous times will come . . . Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” -2 Timothy: 3:1, 13

More in-your-face evil.

Watain, a satanic Swedish black metal band, performed at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar in New York City on Sunday night, June 15, 2014.

Watain in NY 2010As the band chanted creepily, the lead singer Erik Danielsson presented the audience with a goat skull full of blood. He drank from the skull, sprayed it out of his mouth onto a skeleton on the stage, then threw the blood on the crowd.

Some members of the audience burst into tears; others vomited.

TMZ broke the story of the concert held in Brooklyn, New York, and according to their statement following an interview with the band, real pig’s blood was used.

Here’s Drew Millard’s account for Noisey (edited for obscene language):

Last night, I decided to see Watain, a Swedish black metal band about Satan, at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a performance space that also doubles as a weird flea market thing. For those of you who don’t know, Watain’s live show is famous for a few things. […] They’ve been known to perform next to rotting goat carcasses, throw pig blood on the audience, soak their clothes in blood and bury them in graveyards between gigs, and practice something called “Theistic Satanism,” which is basically a nice way of saying they are active devil-worshippers. They seem designed to micturate in the face of the few remaining cultural taboos, which has elevated them from a sorta run-of-the-mill metal band to one of the most prominent touring extreme music acts around […] the reason I, a non true metal head, know that they exist, and as an extension, the reason that I felt compelled to see them.

[…] Before the band took the stage, a mist rose, and the crowd—made up of metalheads, punks, biker dudes, an uncomfortable amount of crusties, and, uh, me—went silent. Torches were lit, giving the room a nice earthy smell, and I wondered how they cleared that with a fire marshal. […] For twenty minutes or so, the band played straight-ahead black metal, the players whipping their hair around […] in their corpsepaint [….]

Shit started to get weird around the time Watain frontman Erik Danielsson brought out this (I assume) Satanic talisman thingy, which from my vantage point looked kind of like a human skull with ram horns jammed into it, held it aloft, then waved it around like he was casting a spell onto the crowd.

That’s around the time people started leaving the mosh pit with blood on them. Shortly after that, it started to smell ungodly, like human flesh was actively putrefying in the room. And that, believe it or not, was when people started throwing up.

It’s probably not a coincidence that this is when people started getting really into the show. People, mainly already-creepy biker and crust dudes, started stumbling around the venue as if they were under a spell, possessed by the unholy […] Even a cursory look into Watain reveals they’re active Satanists, and in interviews they frequently refer to their live shows as “rituals,” as in “church for people who worship the devil.” Which begs the question—had Watain actually managed to hypnotize some of the audience?

Watain‘s satanism is clear from the titles of its “music” and albums:

  • Go F*ck Your Jewish “God” (1998)
  • Rabid Death’s Curse (2000)
  • Casus Luciferi (2003)

H/t Pat Dollard and FOTM’s christy

St. MikeSt. Michael, the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection
against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray.
And do thou,
oh Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
bind unto hell Satan and the other evil spirits
who wander about the world,
seeking the ruin of souls.

  1. The very best way of not being sucked into such heinous activities–do not participate, no matter how curious you may be. Just turn your back on Satan and walk away, or rather run away. People who dabble in the black arts innocently, sometimes are swept away into the midst of it. As believers in and followers of Christ, there should be NOTHING there for us.

    • Auntie’s said it all, no need for me to attempt any improvement, except to say our God-given free
      will means we have the power/strength to turn away.
      If you’re interested in this, check out my poem on my website,, and note the lines at the end:

      “… what I have carries me along
      and sustains me: to know what life is, and what it isn’t;
      instructs me to know the way and to walk in it; when to turn
      to the left, or to the right, and when to turn away.”

      As written in Eccelesiates, we can ‘turn, turn away’ from such insanity.

  2. Good grief…sickening.

  3. I’m flabbergasted!

  4. Good informative post, Doc. Coincidence (?), but the last two days I’ve been reading of how the Tavistock Institute created the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, virtually all rock music in order destroy the American family and promote satanism.

    • There is no grand conspiracy (Tavistock). Rock musicians have been immersing themselves in the occult ever since The Beatles and their peers discovered Satanist Aleister Crowley’s books which claim that a person can become a musical genius by practising his “magick” rituals. How is this possible? The Bible reveals that Satan has power in this world. Not many people know this, but Lucifer is described in the Bible as a musical being. Satan likely has the ability to compose music. Many of the biggest rock stars “channel” musical inspiration from demonic spirits. Songs often come to them in dreams. Some openly admit that an external force that they do not comprehend is responsible for their creativity. Jim Morrison and Brian Wilson both admitted to being tormented by voices in their heads…..likely demonic possession – yes kids, it is real, not just a product of Hollywood! Yeah, I know….this can’t be true because your local “morning zoo” DJ has never mentioned it. This may shock you, but they ain’t as hip as you think. People who know the Bible are hip to reality.

  5. As a veteran of over twenty Rush shows (the only band I will actually pay money to see), the worst thing that ever happened to me was a guy backed up and stepped on my toe while we were waiting in the beer line.

    And he was really apologetic, too.

    He even offered to pay for my beer. 🙂

    Man, I miss those days.


    • Dave,

      This post isn’t about Rush, the “progressive” rock (whatever that means) and heavy metal band. This post is about the clearly satanic Watain. Here’s another pic of Watain which I didn’t include in my post:


      Jesuit priest and author Malachi Martin once wrote that our instinctive, i.e. God-given reaction to evil is revulsion — and that should be the automatic reaction we have to Watain.

  6. Eph. 6:12
    “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

    And it is a battle that we must address whether we acknowledge it or not. There are no side lines, no sitting on the fence, no neutral areas…. and no, we cannot wait them out.

  7. My father used to say that rock & roll was a “big ugliness contest” based on the rockers’ hair length. (He was particularly nauseated by the Rolling Stones). This is BEYOND mere “ugliness”: It is NIHILISM, the destruction of all moral values, to paraphrase Nietzsche.
    Now let us give Death, Inc., here the benefit of the doubt for a moment. Let us pretend they only consider themselves to be campy, like a vaudeville act, so to speak. Well, the author of a work can intend one thing, but the reader or listener can take that and construe another, whether they are rational or not. And here is the danger: Inherently, these (alleged) musicians are hoping that their listeners do just this. Vaudeville act or no vaudeville act, they are acting in bad faith. This goes beyond Ozzy Osborne and “Suicide Solution.”
    But: This is what sells…

  8. I remember in the ’70’s living in Fla. while living the drugs/sex and rock and roll life style, going to all the concerts and festivals at the time, a local church had a record burning of all rock music records, claiming it was from the devil. Well what a laugh we all had over that one. Fast forward 30 yrs….I ran across the video box set, “I Sold My Soul For Rock And Roll”. A real eye opener to say the least! Here it is on Youtube:

    • Thank you, swampy. The video is stunning. Why don’t we believe people when they clearly say they sold their souls to the devil? Denial?

      • I think it has to do with the devil’s biggest deception and that is….. that he does not exist. However, I’ve noticed lately that evil is so prevalent that these naysayers are rethinking that assumption. There being of course, no other logical explanation for what we all are facing today in our day to day lives.

    • Excellent video, Swampygirl! Today, it’s not just musicians, but actors, reality TV stars, models, politicians, and many more!

  9. You will “Rise” or “Lower” to the level of the people you associate with.

  10. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. It is unfathomable to me why anyone would attend such a horrible event that is so disgusting and irreverent and destructive of life. We must continue to ask for St. Michael’s help and intervention against the devil and his minions. We fight against evil for Our Lord Jesus Christ!

  11. I think it is also important to remember that Satan is referred to as “the prince of the power of the air”( Ephesians 2:2). As a person who was a two-way radio dispatcher for most of my career, I have a point of view that sees the connection between music, radio, television, internet, media, “air time”, etc. Anything on the earth can be used to corrupt mankind. Satan is the “prince of this world” (John 12:31), He has the power over this world and we should remember this. It is easy to get caught up in daily events, but we need to see with different eyes.

    • I like your post Lea. I have an Uncle who has been a circus performer/Stuntman his whole life. He did some amazing things way up there on that flying trapeze and he even made it into the Circus Hall of Fame but he’s still just a circus performer.

    Pray for them all!
