In my search on connections between magic/esotericism and music, I came across this blog entry on Killing Joke and Crowley.
Seems that there are numerous references to Crowley in the lyrics and artwork of Killing Joke.

Killing Joke are mentioned at length elsewhere on LAShTAL.COM, not least because they are, in the opinion of this humble webmaster, one of the finest bands currently recording and touring. There are many Thelemic references and their performances are both celebratory and ritualistic.

I'm going to experience them yet again in London on 4 October and would recommend that any other members here also pay the gig a visit.

I would also refer anyone interested to singer Jaz Coleman's "The Courtauld Talks" wherein much of relevance is discussed...

Paul-

I can hardly add to your comments re: KJ save to say they are as much a phenomenon as a band.

Whereas it is very interesting to catalogue every mention of Crowley or his work in modern music, it goes without saying that many touch the themes in a superficial fashion. There is NOTHING superficial in Killing Joke. Through their various "incarnations," the music has been crafted of blood, sweat and tears.

I'm also glad you mentioned the "Courtauld Talks." It's a harrowing "lecture" and commands attention. That presentation was my "introduction" to the "Old Ones" of the fabled Necronomicon and the relevance of that mythos to modern human society as distinct from juvenile morbidity or superstitious silliness. Something well expressed, I thought, by "Simon" in his follow-up work, "Gates of the Necronomicon."

I'm going to experience them yet again in London on 4 October

You lucky, lucky man. KJ is like a time-bomb. You never know when the next time will be the LAST.

And cheers to Guido for the link.

Tapping Into The Aeon,

Kyle

I'm sure this has already been posted but in the Beatles Sergeant Peppers Album, Crowley is on the top row second from the left...

Also, less of a primary source-more of a substantiation, but if delve into the Red Hot Chili Peppers you will find more than a coincidental mass of Aleistar Crawley references. Although Tony Kaiedis's lyrics are poly-representational at the best of times, records such as: "21st Century", "Stadium Arcadium " and "Desecration smile" all bear an inspired mark.

Moreover, as stated in a former post, many of John Fruciante's solo tracks appear to be deeply rooted in Crawleys legacy. Ontop of the fact that, in his letter to the 152nd edition of Total Guitar (concerning Music theory) he preceeded the letter with "Do as thou wilt shall be whole of the law." and ended with "Love is the law, love under will"

Perhaps this one might warrant a heads up post on the front page since it came out only a couple of weeks ago?

As well as being an album completely dedicated to Kenneth Grant's occultism, it also makes use of my realisation of Leila Waddell's "Thelema: A Tone Testament" and has guest vocals by Arild Stromsvag. More info: http://englishheretic.blogspot.com/

I've just found a rather complementary overview... if you ignore the Freudian slip therein: http://mauvezonerecordings.blogspot.com/2009/08/english-heretics-tales-of-new-isis.html

... I don't think that anyone has mentioned 'Era Vulgaris' - the title of the fifth 'Queens Of The Stone Age' album. Apparently the guys in the band enjoy reading A.C.'s work, & used it as an inspiration.

I am not sure if COPH NIA has already been mentioned through these long discussions. I recommend listening if some of you havent allready done it.

http://www.cophnia.com/

http://www.myspace.com/cophnia

It is an dark ambient/ambient industrial act formed by Aldenon Satorial. I own one their record called "That which remains" with references to The Star Sapphire, LIBER AL and LIBER OZ on the lyrics and Aldenon thanks his HGA on the thankslist. So, very Crowleyan/Thelemic indeed.

See also "Hymn to Pan" by Coph Nia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-3VnXtRWUo&feature=PlayList&p=20296E98173B698D&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=19

There was an italian band goth/neofolk band from the 80s called Thelema that pretty much had a crowley theme every song. Also Giacinto Scelsi, an early italian ultra-minimalist composer made a record called Konx Om Pax, though I don't know if he was even aware of Crowley even though they were contemporaries. Strangely enough Scelsi also reportedly wrote poetry (though I've never found even one sample of his written work) and claimed that his musical compositions were dictated to him by spirits as a mystical message for the world.

The Norwegian metal band 'Dimmu Borgir' are soon to release an album called "ABRAHADABRA". The press release I read cites AC, 1904, Cairo, etc. They tend to work conceptually, so I am sure that the lyrics will relate. They are a band who have a huge young fan base;- sales on books will be impacted by this, I would say... Especially if the first video follows the theme.

Well, I looked at everything that's available from Lustmord, and since there's basically NO vocals in any of his music, references to Crowley and Thelema are mostly visceral, I guess. As far as song and album titles, he put out a great record called 'Rising' on 6/6/06, and there are many songs with references to "Beasts" of this and that, and he did a few songs with a musician called 'Hecate', so that might be a weak link to Grant, perhaps? Anybody with any other ideas about Lustmord would be much appreciated.

I am at Lustmords facebook-community, and this update at least shows some interest towards Crowley, might be;

"We went to this fun lecture by legend Kenneth Anger last year. And he was kind enough to buy us dinner after. http://tinyurl.com/24ty8f d"

If we wanna go into making sure that the guy is influenced by Crowley, it is supported more by this link: http://b-lustmord.blogspot.com/2010/05/anger-is-energy.html

Check out the Secret Eye of L.A.Y.L.A.H

Ambient and rhythms drummed on bones for the most part, it sounds inane but its actually quite good - song titles taken from Crowley, Grant, and Spare.

Apologies if this is a repost.

French Black Metal band Nehemah's 2002 album Requiem Tenebrae states on the liner notes..."Dedicated to the memory of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) & H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). See you soon elsewhere..." A number of the songs have long samples from Crowley's wax cylinder recordings.

Offbeat Bare ass by 311

I can see a lot of people who feel like I do
I can see a lot of people who feel like I don't
I go on step lightly even when i'm heavy
high jump the slump open up fot the Revy Horton Heat
sweet what am I displayin' forgot what I was saying
I know I must be laying a pipe you got a gripe
with the way I get high Graffix bong sing along with a cry of a
mandatory sentence for a crime with no victim
when everyone knows jail terms should be picked in
order of the pain that they cause (you know)
do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
until you violate the rights of another
respect the space of your sister and your brother
the war on drugs may be well intentioned
but it falls f---ing flat when you stop and mention
the over crowded prisons where a rapists gets paroled
to make room for a dude who has sold
a pound of weed to me that's a crime
here's to good people doin time y'all

Absu - the song "Fantasizing to the Third of the Pagan Vision" states - "O lilywhite goat crisp as a thicket of thorns With a collar of gold for thy throat A scarlet bow for thy horns" and paraphrases more of that verse from the book of thoth

Mercyful Fate - the song "The Oath" states – “Do what thou wilt, shall be the whole of the law “

Disiplin - the song "The One Who Makes You Crawl" states - "set my star upon your banners and go forward in joy and victory none shall deny you, and none shall stand before you, because of the sword of my brother invoke me, call upon me, call me in your convocations and rituals, call upon me in your loves and battles in my name babalon, wherein is all power given" - from THE BOOK OF BABALON by Jack Parsons

Cradle of Filth - the song "Of Mist and Midnight Skies" states - “Do What Thou Wilt until the stones in my heart stand still regardless of the cost to your repugnant god“

blut aus nord - Odinist: "The Destruction of Reason by Illumination"

crowley uses term black sabbath in one of his works

jay z - wearing "do what thou wilt" clothing can be seen on "The Making of Jay-Z's 'Run This Town' Video"

burzum "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" t-shirt states on the back - "That which is to be denied shall be denied; that which is to be trampled shall be trampled; that which is to be spat upon shall be spat upon". LIBER STELLAE RUBEAE

Lustmord has an album called "The Monstrous Soul" which has a couple song titles which seem to reference Kenneth Grant or Typhonian gnosis. The album title itself being the same as a chapter from Outside the Circles of Time which is itself a reference to Rimbaud.

Track titles include "The Daathian Doorway," "Ixaxaar," "Protoplasmic Reversion ," and " The Fourth And Final Key"

Of course the titles are the extent of any direct connection - the music is ambient and creates a atmosphere more than it beats you over the head with banal lyrical references.

Ive got a few crowley inspired bands from Ireland to add to the list here. My Late friend and Brother Jason Bariskil had a band death metal band called Epoch with Lyrics such as-
THE TOWER OF BABALON:
Down, by the shores of Ness.
The Prophet made a mess.
Goats blood on the carpet again!
The housekeeper must clean up the stain.
Erect a tower toward the sky.
Erect a tower to let the Gods know why.
Babalon,Babalon Bal Bin Abaft.
Babalon,Babalon Bal Bin Abaft.

This was written at boleskine house on shores of Loch Ness. Unfortunatley I cant find any of their stuff online to link, i'll see if I can upload any of their CDs I have if people are interested.

There is a Dublin metal band called Era Vulgaris who are inspired byA.C. http://www.myspace.com/eravulgaris

I myself am the Drummer for Belfast based band Spiral Force and we are Crowley/thelema inspired. Here is some links if you'd like to check us out.
http://youtu.be/Ku2OHx7wWR8
http://www.myspace.com/spiralforce

Another band inspired by Thelema are The Green Man check out these italian neo folksters sing about Liber Al here http://youtu.be/BpmEBebvA5w

Dickinson's "Man of Sorrows" (though I imagine it has already been mentioned)

Also, Bruce seems to be talking about Aleister in the "Magician" song (also from Accident of Birth) and in "Revelations" (with Iron Maiden). And of course we have "Book of Thel" (although I think it's more influenced by Blake than Crowley), "The Tower", "Darkside of Aquarius", "The River of No Return" etc.

Another great example is of course Tiamat. They have many songs that can be characterised as being "thelemic" such as Equinox of the Gods, Prey, Pentagram etc (in Pentagram they use Crowley's voice samples in the background)

Also, Moonspell, particularly the "Irreligious" album.

Babalon

Punishment of Luxury (from the album Laughing Academy, 1979)

I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast
Full of names of blasphemy and written on her
Forehead was MYSTERY - Babalon the great
Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth.

Then an angel cried, saying Babalon is fallen and
become the habitation of devils and the hold of
Every foul spirit. For all nations of the earth have
drunk the wine of the wrath of her fornication and
the kings of the earth have fornicated with her,
and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich
through the abundance of her delicacies.

Chorus:
Babaloon the Great -mud mother
Babaloon the Great -soil sister
Babaloon the Great -she was Mary Magdalena
Babaloon the Great -she's your Whore Madonna

I believe in one earth, the mother of us all and in
One womb wherein all men are begotten and
wherein they shall rest, mystery of mystery, in her name,
Babalon, crimson queen, she was painted,
tainted, unclean
Undermining family life
Everybody's mistress, nobody's wife

Our father lied -she never died
Love became obsession and gulf between body
and soul opened wide
Conscience was a bleeding heart
Tore all lovers apart
Made a sword in the shape of a cross and a bomb that cried
"God's on your side."
He said "You're born to die, life's all sorrow
Don't change the world, think only of tomorrow"
Millions were killed, tortured and maimed
Allah be praised, she ought to be ashamed

Chorus:
She's not a screen dream to hang on the wall
Or a wet machine to peep beneath your pillow
She's not your girl next door or an ice queen to
waste away for
She's Babalon, equal to man
She'll do what she wants to do what she can
But Gad said the word, still heard now
"If she's not a virgin, she must be a cow"

Sparge verba, sparge verba, sparge verba ¾
Venus orta mari
Exaudi penis carmina blanda precor
Phallum ejaculum tibi feram semper in meo amore

Babalon, I'm waiting for you, I'm begging for you
Babalon listen to me, listen to me etc. NOW
Babalon you've got to come back
Bababababababababa Babalon
Please come back
Bababababababababababababa

And on youtube this song is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELSDG5H6AVk

Enjoy 😀

I released a new album yesterday which features A.C. and is designed to be used for ritual and meditation. It is freely available as a .flac download from my SoundCloud page here:

http://soundcloud.com/babaluma/babaluma-e93/

Description: This is a one hour long ambient single track album incorporating various techniques for deep relaxation, meditation, ritual work and lucid dreaming, such as binaural beat frequencies, just intonated tone scales, frequency shifting for extended delay feedback, and the harmonic series.

Instructions For Use: This recording was designed to be listened to on high quality headphones. The track is intentionally quieter, more repetitive and longer than a lot of regular ambient music tracks. Please only listen when you have a full hour to devote to yourself, in a quiet place, preferably with the lights turned out. The effects can be quite strong, particularly in the mid and later sections, so please do not listen whilst driving or operating heavy machinery. 😆

Please feel free to download the high quality .flac file for the best listening experience, or let me know if you'd like an .mp3 version.

Finally, I would love to hear any thoughts or feelings you have about this track, so please feel free to drop me a PM!

All the best,

Gregg

No direct reference. However, their lyrics in some albums like "Irreligious" or "Sin/Pecado" have something... familiar.

Also, check out the songs "Awake" and "A Poisoned Gift" (from Irreligous). Particularly the voice samples featured in these songs.

Ian Curtis of Joy Division was interested in Crowley and Magick. His song 'Transmission' was said to be inspired by 'The Book of Thoth', according to the sleeve notes of the Warsaw album collection. New Order still perform this song live at concerts.
Killing Joke toured the UK with Joy Division in 1980. KJ's lead singer Jeremy 'Jaz' Coleman and drummer Big Paul Ferguson have long identified with Crowley and the occult. Lead guitarist Kevin 'Geordie' Walker is a Qaballah Master and bass guitarist Martin 'Youth' Glover is a Druid. The KJ song 'The Fall of Because' is inspired by a verse in 'Liber Al Vel Legis'.

Swedish occultist Carl Abrahamsson fronted the experimental rock band White Stains (their name taken from the collection of erotic poems by Crowley). Abrahamsson was a member of the British magical group Thee Temple Ov Psychic Youth, whose musical vehicle Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge, former lead singer of Throbbing Gristle, who long held an interest in Crowley and the occult.
The Rolling Stones consulted the magickal works of Crowley and nineteenth century sorcerer Eliphas Levi (Alphonse Louis Constant), and released the 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' album in 1967.

The song A Palace of Worms by Sol Invictus includes A Hymn to Pan by Crowley. It was originally recorded for the Cthulhu compilation The Lamp of the Invisible Light, and is also included on the Sol Invictus CD album All Things Strange and Rare.

In breaking from the industrial / goth / metal trend - Justin Vivian Bond - cabaret entertainer and Broadway singer has a song on "hir" new album called "Crowley a la Lee" about a fictional meeting between Crowley and Peggy Lee.

In some onstage anecdotes V describes "hir" style as "A cross between Aleister Crowley and Peggy Lee."

In a recent interview with 'Terrorizer' music magazine, Jaz Coleman, lead singer of Killing Joke, revealed that the story he put out about the reason for his famous disappearance to Iceland in 1982 as waiting for the "Apocalypse", was a ruse. In fact, it was to seek knowledge and conversation with his Holy Guardian Angel.

As already mentioned the band CAN recorded an brilliant album in 1971 called 'Tago Mago' and was supposedly also inspired by Aleister Crowley. The title was named after Isla de Tagomago, an island off the east coast of Ibiza that according to the band featured in the Crowley legend. I must confess that I never heard of this island in connection with Crowley. Does anyone know more about this?

Ian Gillan's "Abbey of Thelema" comes to mind.

I always liked that; it really does make me think of the Abbey.

I know of some indirect references i.e. Killing Joke's - The Fall of Because.

I started carrying CDs and records and my old occult book shop in the mid-1990's and tended to stock in consideration of my clientele, who leaned to goth/industrial/metal. I asked the agent for our music distributor his suggestions for product based on our other lines, and of those that he suggested that I recall being particularly Crowleyan were Screams for Tina and Rosetta Stone. Other than this, the often-mentioned Killing Joke sold well and had strong Crowley ties. Strangely, the highest selling record of the time at the shop was by Gary Numan. Although known for his pop singles, around this time he was releasing some fairly dark records, including Exile, which we sold tons of. Although not Thelemic, is was certainly Gnostic in lyrical content.

The cover of 80s metal band Judas Priest "Sin after sin":

reflects a cover we all know

I like Priest's cover better. The cover deigner must have been a Thelemite though there are some references to the occult in Priest's lyrics.
