Title: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on August 20, 2007, 12:18:03 pm
This weekend I was at a bookstore reading all of these new interviews that were done with King Diamond and they were very interesting as usual.  He talked a lot about the various supernatural events that have surrounded him over the years.  Of course he has always included some of the real life events on his Cd's with both Mercyful Fate and King Diamond mixed in with the stuff that he makes up.  King said that his home in Frisco Texas in not as haunted as his place in Denmark, but that there have been some things going on.  Even band members have been hit in the head and back by unseen things.  And his black cat magic has been known to watch things in the night that no one else can sense, which was mentioned on the new CD.   King doesn't think that anything followed him there from Denmark but that something might be attached to some artifacts that he has and he thinks he knows what or whom it is.

But he talked a lot about his place in Denmark where he lived for years and how he and other  people would be grabbed by the hair by unseen hands and have their faces caressed and get touched in other ways.  He said that things would be moved around or rise in the air by themselves including a blanket that floated in the air for no reason.  Seeing fingerprints of children on a mirror even though no kids were ever in there, as well as hearing voices in the room when no one was around.  A reporter who once spent the night in King's home said he heard children laughing in the room even though he was alone.  Of course the thing King remembered the most was the night that James and Lars of Metallica were over and Timi Hanson the bassist of MF with a girl Anita that he liked.  King was in the bedroom with James and Lars playing Foosball and Timi and Anita were in the Living Room when they heard a loud crashing sound.  So King and them ran in seeing Timi and Anita all freaked out because everything on King's Satanic Altar in the corner of his living room including the altar cloth rose up and threw itself all over the room.  And later that night Anita was stuck in King's bathroom and when King went to see if she was all right he found her screaming and crying because she couldn't get out and "something" in there growled at her.

King said that things would also happen on the road and at the studio a lot as well.  He found out that even his parents had some experiences like this also.  King also talked about a dream he had of a black book with a lady and being surrounded by a Satanic Coven of blackhooded shadows and that he couldn't wake up or talk.  Of course this was included in his song "Nightmare".  Just like the song "Welcome Princess of Hell" was about the famous incident with the glass rising in the air which was also on the album "Them".

Is it any wonder that King is fascinated by the Unknown and the Powers of Darkness and Satanism.

I have an audio recording of King Diamond telling the story of Them from the old ZROCK days.  On the interview before playing the MF song Nightmare.  He tells the story behind the nightmare.  Man that is from 1988.  Man I'm old. LOL \m/

Those were from various interviews I saw in about six different metal magazines over the weekend.  Some were Metal Edge, Metal Maniacs, UnRestrained, and I forget the names of the other ones.  They were all new issues. So on the radio interview what did Kings say about the song "Nightmare"?

Thanks, I may pick up a few. I remember back in the day, I'd leaf through all the mags on the rack and if King wasn't in them I wouldn't buy them. Ah to be an obnoxious teenager again, the clerks would get so pissed because their books were "used" and I didn't buy them.

Yes I too will usually only buy a metal magazine if King is in it where he talks about the Occult, Satanism and the Supernatural.  But he seems to be much more open about that stuff in Satanic books and Magazines from what I have seen over the years.  Much more so than in non Satanic magazines.  There is also a double cassette tape around that has a three hour interview that he did years ago on the radio where he talked about a whole bunch of cool things like that.

Post by: prhill on August 21, 2007, 11:10:40 am
Theres several Satanic Magazines around.  The Black Flame, The Cloven Hoof, Satans Sweet Slavery, The Raven, Black star chronicles, Bloodfire, Sinister, The Black Pumpkin and of course The Trident and Devils Diary magazine which are two that I have written for many times including some King Diamond reviews.  And there are some others as new ones sprout up all of the time.

Post by: prhill on August 23, 2007, 12:03:32 pm
I also liked how in the metal  magazine they said how "King was inspired by Jimmy page who was obsessed with Crowley and the Occult and used that to create his music just as King has done with Anton LaVey who wrote the Satanic bible and founded the Church of Satan.  A match made in Hell"

I really wish King would write a book like so many other artists do!  Not only could he talk about his music but he could talk in more detail about all of the weird supernatural stuff that has surrounded him for so many years now.  Also he could discuss his affiliation with the Church of Satan and his meeting with Anton LaVey as well as his personal Satanic Ritual practice which he has discussed at least a little bit about at times.

But as it says in the FAQ, the Satanic thing "was more of a publicity thing of the 80'ies". Whether he took it more seriously back then or not, I get the impression that he's not quite so keen on promoting it nowadays, even if it was only the 'Satanic-Lite' brand of LaVeyan Satanism.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on September 05, 2007, 01:30:25 pm
He is still 100 percent a Satanist and still talks about it all of the time.  Especially in the Satanic publications.  And his new wife has admitted to being a practicing Satanist as well.  And he is still singing about it like he always has.  And he still wears the Satanic Cross which he says he does to pay respect to the Satanic philosophy that is in the Satanic bible.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Azalin on September 05, 2007, 01:57:17 pm
And he is still singing about it like he always has.

I think the last time satan was referenced at all was 8 years ago on the album 9. right off the top of my head, I can't think of any references to satanism in any of his solo work, except for the song 'this place is terrible' where the lyrics allude to the higher power controlling good & evil, as they similarly do in the song '9'. they all just seem like good horror stories to me and nothing more.

As King has explained many times though that Mercyful Fate is not about Satan or Satanism at all.  Mercy he said is about old legends and the occult and things of that nature.  While he says correctly that King Diamond IS the Satanic side of things becuase it is all about human nature and the human mind and instincts no matter what era the story is being told in.  And the other Satanic part about his stories is that in them there is always the natural balance of good and evil which is subjective which is also part of the Satanic philosophy.  He knows that people always think that Mercy was the more Satanic stuff when in fact it isn't.  The King Diamond solo stuff is the Satanic stuff.  Plus in all of his solo work he is singing about the various aspects of the powers of the unknown which is Satan.  The Mercyful Fate stuff is about only beliefs and the oocult which has nothing to do with Satanism.

that may well be true, but that's some pretty common subject matter for songs, literature, etc, and I really don't see how any of it relates to any kind of religion at all.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on September 05, 2007, 03:13:13 pm
Because the Satanic religion is based on those kinds of things.  That is what separates it from all of the other religions that are based more on the occult and other mumbo jumbo.  Satanism is based on logic and human nature and reality.  That is one if the things that King loves about it so much because it is more down to earth unlike other religions.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Azalin on September 05, 2007, 03:29:26 pm
I just don't see any need to look for religion anywhere other than in a book or a church, but if this music embodies any kind of theology for you, obscure or obvious, then have at  it. I simply do not see it.

Post by: prhill on September 06, 2007, 07:19:18 am
It does nothing for me.  I am explaining what King has said.  Do you not read his interviews about his beliefs and how they are in all of his songs?  These are his beliefs that I explained.  It has nothing to do with me?  Where have you been?  King is deep into Satanism and it is his life and his music comes from that and always will as he has said many times.  These again are his words, not at all mine.  He is the one who has explained a number of times how his solo work is Satanic and that the Merciful fate stuff is non Satanic for the most part and is more about the occult and myths and things of that nature.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Azalin on September 06, 2007, 08:11:34 am
no, I don't read about his beliefs. I don't really care about his or anyone else's beliefs....yours are yours to have and that's fine. King Diamond is a singer, songwriter, producer, and entertainer. I don't care if he's a vegetarian, a mason, a democrat, or an alien. I like his music. I would like his music if he sang about flowers. his beliefs and everyone else's for that matter are of no concern to me whatsoever.

As someone posted before, the King should write a book.  I'd actually sooner read that if I saw it on the shelves than buy the next new album.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on September 11, 2007, 07:11:09 am
Yeah actually that was me that said he should write a book.  I would buy it the second I heard of it coming out!  It would be huge if he included everything that people are interested in with him.  Like his supernatural experiences. His meetings and talks with Anton LaVey.  His experiences with Satanic Rituals, etc.

To add to this I heard King do an interview for Metal blade and he said that some band members have been hit hard by invisible things in his home during the recording of the new album and during the Puppet master recordings.

I really do hope that that stuff is true.  Just about everyone else in metal (that's remotely popular, anyway) has debunked their previous statements about the supernatural so far.

Glen Benton, Varg Vikernes, etc.

Post by: prhill on September 22, 2007, 11:57:05 am
Yes but I don't think that King would lie about it.  He is so obviously obsessed with this kind of stuff which is why it is part of all of his songs.  Plus not only have present band members seen and felt these things,  but so have older members as well as some of Kings relatives including his new wife who is also a practicing Satanist.  And also some of the members from Metallica have seen some of what went on in Kings apartment in Denmark.

On that recent Metal Blade Interview King mentioned how he can't believe looking back just how much of the supernatural that he sings about are real life things that have happened in his life.  Some of the stuff of course we know about, but I wonder just what things from his stories are true that we don't know about.

There are a lot more satanist in this world than you might think. In fact most people practice the satanic way of life and they don't even know it.

No,I don't know her personally,but we changed a couple of PM's here,she's from the same country as me,and I think she's a nice person.Of course if you would call everyone who lives the modern way of life a Satanist,(which is basically the main pillar of Anton LeVay's definition of being a Satanist) then it's OK.I don't know,frankly couldn't care less,it's her own personal belief,I have nothing to do with that,it's just hard to believe for me,but that's it.

I remember reading about this!

During the same month, the band had the opportunity to perform their first shows outside their native Denmark under the name Mercyful Fate. The first one took place at the famous Dynamo Club in Eindhoven, Holland, on September 23rd, as the club was packed with 300 people. That night, the crowd wanted to hear more and the band started to play their set again. The second show was at Ulicoten, still in Holland, two days later. The next day, the band returned to Copenhagen, where they were booked to support the English all-female band Girlschool. While Mercyful Fate was on stage, at one point, King said something like "We're gonna bring Satan into this house tonight". Then, when Mercyful Fate did ended its set, the guys went back into the dressing room. Some mimutes after that, King distinctly heard some strange noises coming from the PA; he still got a tape of it at his home, it was very strange. Then, one of the Mercyful Fate roadies came to tell them about the noises, and for some reason that King still doesn't understand, he turned to him and said "I know, and the band will have to stop playing in a few minutes and they won't play another note tonight!". Why that came out of his head, he can't explain. A few minutes later, while Girlschool was performing, their singer, Kim McAuliffe, who was using the same microphone as King used earlier that night, was electrified on stage and had to be taken to the hospital toward the middle of the set. What was even stranger was that the police called in some expert electricians to go over all the gear, and they could not find absolutely nothing wrong. The promoter of the gig went to the radio and said that he'd felt a very strange atmosphere surrounding the hall on that night, the like of which he'd never before come across. He told the DJ it was almost like something had to happen, it had been decreed by forces beyond human comprehension.

A lot of it was taken from various interviews that he has done over the years for both Metal and Satanic magazines.  Some of it was from some talk shows and interviews that I have on video.  Also some of it came from those cassettes that I have when he sat in for three hours at a radio station aswering questions and talking about a whole lot of different things that were all fascinating!  I got a little bit of it from some old King Diamond Coven newsletters, and then a couple of things came from this very site the Covenworldwide.com in the huge band history section.

Also don't forget that as he mentioned in the interview that was posted on here a couple of weeks ago that fans would be shocked if they knew about how much of his lyrics are based on real events and not from his imagination.  Some of these real life lyrics he has given away at times over the years.

It depends on the experience.  I have had some myself and some were good and some not so good.  But I think everyone has.  I meet people all of time who have had at least some kind of weird experience that is unexplainable.  And as King said to me once when I asked him what he thought these things were he said correctly " Anything would be pure speculation which is why I call them the Powers of the unknown because that is just what they are UNKNOWN"

well thats something right there :D:    The other day out of nowhere a co-worker of mine starting telling me about all of these experiences he has had.  It was very interesting to say the least. 
I loved that old article that was reprinted in that one metal magazine last year where the reporter met King for the first time and stayed overnight in his famous haunted apartment.  It was great to read about all of the things they discussed and did!

You should be able to find some on the net.  Also you can get a copy of that book "Lucifer Rising" by COS member Gavin Baddeley from the bookstore.   There is a great interview with King in there.  Otherwise you have to try companies that still sell some of those videos and cassettes.  Or find some of the past issues of metal and Satanic magazines where King is featured and interviewed.   King talked a lot about this after the release of GMYSP.  But last year the one Metal magazine did a three part series on Satanism and Satanic musicians, etc.  And they reprinted an old article from years ago when a reporter was sent to Denmark to meet this up and coming new band called Mercyful Fate.  He got to see them play a little bit then he spent the night with King in his apartment that night.  He was warned by bassist Timi Hansen that  he had better beware of the spirits that are in King's home.  Timi of course knows about what goes on in Kings place becasue he and a girl witnessed things being thrown around the apartment once by unseen forces including Kings altar being raised in the air.  And the girl Timi was with got trapped in King's bathroom by something that growled at her!  Also Hank Sherman said that other members of the band are worried about what kind of Satanic Forces King will unleash next as he takes his Satanic religeon so seriously.
The reporter said the first thing he noticed was that King had no lightbulbs anywhere in his place.  They sat there talking in the dark with only black candles around for light.  King told him that he doesn't use electrical lighting as it scares away the spirits and he likes having them around.  King also spent most of the night reading from the Satanic Bible and saying how dedicated he was to LaVey's Church of Satan.  He then played two tapes for the reporter.  One had the famous incident where King invited Satan into the house during a concert where the singer from Girlschool then got electricuted and almost died.  The other tape was of Led Zeppelin and their song stairway to Heaven where it is suppose to say something about Satan if played backwards and apparently King was a huge believer in that rumor.
Then the reporter slept on the floor next to Kings Satanic Altar which according to the reporter was in the corner of the living room and had two black candles on it buring along with an inverted cross that King stole from a church and a human skull.  Also on top was another copy of the Satanic Bible which had burn marks on it from being used in so many Satanic Rituals.  King also had a picture of a nun masturbating with a cross on his living room door that he was very proud of.  The next morning Hank told the reporter how King would bring in a mini Satanic altar and red lights into the studio during recordings to create the proper feeling.  King would then use candles only to see the lyrics when it was time to do the vocals for the albums.   Which of course almost started a fire during the recording of the album "Them" years later.

Post by: prhill on April 04, 2008, 12:28:21 pm
He used to be accused of using the concerts as rituals.  Which is talked about in that book "Lucifer Rising" but as King said he does rituals at home and not on stage.  Actually here is a new article I just found and never saw before.

A DEAD GIRL’S BEST FRIEND: An Interview With King Diamond
By
Mar 20, 2008, 17:16



Dead babies. The microphone constructed of two femur bones in the shape of a crucifix. An unmistakable falsetto singing, almost beautifully: “…I deny Jesus Christ, the Deceiver…,” (“The Oath,” from Mercyful Fate’s 1984 album, Don’t Break the Oath). A theatrical stage set up like a cemetery, complete with a shed housing multiple implements such as scythes, shovels, and hatchets…. Well known ties to the Church of Satan. And, above all else, a musical journey that has spanned over thirty years…

This is King Diamond, arguably the most influential metal musician working today. The facts, though few and far between, are well known and have become just another part of the mysterious personae of the man. But to understand the music fully, one must understand the mind—whether demented or completely lucid—that spawned them. To get behind the makeup for just a glimmer of the spark that sets his fingers working, writing the next musical opus, and figure out…something, anything…

Your Flesh: Describe your early life. What was your childhood like?

King Diamond: Early life, you know, I was very lucky. I had a great childhood. Nothing but good to say about how my parents raised me. Strict but with that came a lot of freedom too, you know. Played a lot of soccer, for a long time. I was very interested in music. I saw my first concert in, I think it was 1970 or 71. I saw Grand Funk Railroad…and since then it’s been [all about] going to concerts and collecting music, you know… vinyl at that time. Spent all my money on vinyl. Got a job with, what you call a lab assistant, and still did soccer and music. You know, it was too much. There was no time left for doing, you know, anything properly. So at one point I stopped playing soccer and concentrated on the music. It was a time when it was just a hobby, but it was a very serious hobby.

YF: Though a lot of people already know about it, tell me about your first few bands.

 
KD: There was the time with the band called Black Rose, the band that I started singing in. I played guitar in a band before that. We started playing shows, you know, and you can actually hear some of what we were doing because there was an album released with that band, which is a good sounding, good quality rehearsal recording. And from there, that band broke up because—what can I say—everyone was not serious enough. The keyboard player sold his big Hammond and so we were like, “So now what?” I think it was for a kitchen for his apartment so, I mean what can you do? The band split up and I went looking for another band and I was offered to join this other band was Brats, which was an early version of Mercyful Fate [absolutely hilarious video] . And after a while we got a deal with CBS in Denmark, a small division of the big CBS. When I joined the band it was under the condition that we were only going to play heavy metal. The band used to before that play a mix of heavy stuff…punk, you know, but when I joined the band it was under the condition to only play heavy metal. So we started doing that and then when it was presented to CBS, they said, “Uh, no thanks.” We sang in Danish and, at that time, you know, it was too much. And that’s when Hank and I said, “Well, we’re not gonna do that…you know. We’re gonna do what we feel inside.” So I left the band and we started Mercyful Fate. It was not too long, a year or so into Mercyful Fate we got to be on a compilation album on a small English label. We got one song out there and then we were invited to go and do the BBC Radio Friday Night Rock Show and record some songs there. It just started spreading from there on. We got a deal with a small Dutch label. We got two days to record, no time for backing vocals and stuff like that. And then it stared growing from there. That album was exported to a lot of countries and created interest, especially from Roadrunner, who we signed with after that. That’s where we got the deal to go in and spend a full eight days in the studio to do the Melissa album. So there was actually time to do backing vocals, to do the stuff that I had planned for those early songs but we never got a chance to record. At that point the band…we rehearsed so much that we had to, you know, quit our jobs to do it properly. So we took a chance and went on social welfare for a while. That’s a time I’ll never forget in my life, that’s for sure. A time where you had to decide everyday whether you were going to smoke a pack of cigarettes or eat. That was the choice. You had to make the choice. You couldn’t do both. We rehearsed and rehearsed and we went out and played these small shows. [Then] It turned into small tours and it just expanded from there, you know. When the Don't Break the Oath album came out, it not just became a hobby but a full time job, you know, which was, for me, the best that could happen. From then on I stopped being on social welfare in Denmark and it became my job, you know? It has been my job ever since.

YF: It was during your time in Black Rose that you chose the name King Diamond, is that correct?

KD: That was actually back in the band that I played guitar in called Brainstorm, it was before Black Rose.

YF: Why did you choose that name? Is there a special significance behind it?

KD: It was an old school pal and me [who] started the band. He played drums. We found a guitarist and a bass player. We thought we were so great, you know, we would become international stars in no time. We felt that we had to have international sounding names because we heard that other people, Alice Cooper, for instance, his name was not Alice Cooper…so we came up with those names. One guy was Jesse James, the drummer. Mike West was the guitarist, his real name was Mikael, So Mike West was more international, you know. Jesse James, his name was Jens Arnsted. So why and how King Diamond came up as a name…I have NO idea. That was the time period; it was 1976 probably. But I have no idea. I could lie to you and talk forever…I have no clue how that got into my brain, you know? [Laughs] It stuck big time, I can tell you. Hank has never called me anything but King, you know…it kind of defined my career. Everybody knows my name, even today. Most of the bands…it’s always King. If someone on tour said, “Kim! Kim!” I don’t think I would turn around, because you’re so used to that environment where everyone just says “King.”

YF: What exactly was it about the Church of Satan that drew you to it?

KD: I lived in an apartment in Copenhagen that was seriously haunted. I had a lot of experiences there that inspired a lot of the lyrics. Those things that happened there, it was not just me; A lot of times the other people saw and felt the same things.

Not being able to explain the things, I went to the library, probably for the first time in my life, to borrow a book. I had gone there before to borrow vinyl albums, cause you could do that back then. I started reading some of these books that talked about the occult, but figured out that they were all written, or most of them were written, from that same viewpoint, a very Christian viewpoint. When they talked about Satanic this and Satanic that…and sacrifices…and I was thinking, “Oh, man…those Satanists must be totally insane.” That’s the way it described those things. And then I find out down the road that these things also happened within the church itself, you know. What is all this stuff? Why is there not one clear explanation on what’s what? It depends on what viewpoint you’re looking at. It’s like the more you get into these books, you know, it’s like the more confused you get. A lot of information but none of it is clear. So many theories from different viewpoints that you just sit there…and that’s exactly what religion is, I mean look at it today. No one has any proof of one specific god being the only real one. That’s why we have so many different religions and so many different gods that people believe in, you know, because there is no proof! At least not proof where one person can stand up and show the rest of the world, “Look, here’s the proof!” If that were the case then we would all believe in that one god. But there is no proof so…for me myself, I have no religious belief.

 
I would be the last in this world to say that there is no god because, I mean, how would I know? No proof that there are no gods or one or there are many…I don’t know. But I pay respect to those who believe in different kinds of religions…I think everyone should do that. It would be a hell of a lot better world if people would have respect for each other regardless of religious beliefs because no one has the proof. Unfortunately that’s not the case, you know. Almost every single war has religious motives as one of the main things in it, especially today, you know. It doesn’t make sense to me, which is why I’ve stopped. I can’t follow it. There’s no logic to it for me. But people can use that kind of thing as a reason to go and kill each other. It doesn’t exist! No one can prove that they are right! It just doesn’t make sense!

Like I said before, I have a respect for people who believe because I don’t know who’s right or wrong. But the same goes for everyone else. No one knows if they are right or wrong, when it comes down to it. You might have a feeling inside you that is so strong, or had some experiences for yourself that makes you feel like, “This is the right belief for me.” But it is what it says: “Belief.” “I believe it could be this way.” It’s not fact that you’re dealing with, you know. Certain people are convinced that this is not the real thing or that is the real thing, but I just wish that everyone would realize or come to terms with the fact that they don’t have the proof to show to everyone else what’s going on. No one has the proof of what’s going to happen to us when we die. No one knows. It’s fine to believe in, as long as you can keep that respect and realize, “I can’t expect everyone else to think the same, because there are no proofs.”

Then I came upon a book in a bookstore, the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey. “I should probably buy this one to see what’s in it,” you know. To see from that side…what they say. You see these different other sides, you know. Got it and read it and it didn’t read like the other bible whatsoever. I mean…it’s not a religious book. I think it’s a book full of life philosophy. What was described in there was exactly the way that I lived my life. Exactly the feelings I had for the life in a philosophical way, you know?

Later on getting the chance to actually be invited to the Church and then spending the whole night…and meeting LaVey and starting a really amazing relationship, it was something totally different. Seeing how serious and behind his words that he was. That experience at the Church was something that I will never forget.

I have a handwritten letter from LaVey that I carry with me on tours. I know that Karla LaVey once told us, you know out on the west coast, that she wasn’t quite sure whether she wanted to believe me (about the letter) or not. She said, “Dad never handwrote anyone. He always dictated to Blanche Barton.” And I said, “Well, you know, after dinner we can go up to the room and I can show it to you.” When she saw it the tears were rolling down her cheeks when she saw the things that LaVey had written to me. She had no idea. It’s very special.

 
Also, the experience at the Church, to be able to talk along with LaVey for two hours in the ritual chamber was…I’ll never forget it, you know. And not to just go in there and listen and nod your head, but to…to be there and to be able to say, “I would like to speak first,” and explain my thoughts and feelings instead of me nodding to whatever he says. That way he can judge what he feels about me, I suppose. And after I finished saying what it is I wanted to say, it was a really amazing feeling to see him take this symbol that was pinned to his black jacket, to take that off and place it into my hand. Then we talked about some things afterwards that I will not get into. But it was an experience that was very unique. He played keyboards, and organs, and other stuff for me…and then he switched to playing a well-known song to me called…I don’t know what it’s called, but it goes, [singing], “A wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen,” and he would be playing that on his organ and then turn his head over his shoulder with that smirking smile…”Hey I know that song…” But just the seriousness of the stuff, and his humor, and everything else…it was just an unbelievable experience.

YF: Do you still tie yourself with the Church of Satan?

KD: Well, it’s not like I communicate back and forth, you know…it’s not necessary for me in any way. LaVey gave me eternal membership at the time and I’m sure Peter H. Gilmore (head of Church of Satan) knows that. I still call the LaVeys [Anton passed away in 1997] whenever I can. When we were on the west coast I used to see a lot of Zeena and her son, Stanton, came to a lot of our shows. When I get the chance or they find out that we’re coming then I’ll usually get a phone call and we’ll go out and get a nice dinner and talk. Very nice people, I like all of them. I think they have very good personalities. They have different viewpoints on certain things, but that’s not my business. I try to stay in contact when I get out there. It’s not like my number is outdated, but we don’t stay in contact every two months or something, you know? But still we do keep up.

YF: What is the King Diamond philosophy of life?

KD: Mine?

YF: Yes.

KD: One of the most important things for me is respect for each other. Respect other human beings. Even if they have different ideas or opinions than you, it doesn’t mean that they are wrong. It just means that they have those different opinions because they are in a different environment than you are. That respect is one of the most important things to me.

In some situations, if you don’t have an open mind you miss out on so much good stuff, so much stuff you could learn from. I could give so many examples on people missing out on good things, but I don’t have to. You could talk to a person leaping off a bridge and they could give you much more life experience than some kind of big executive that lives in a protective bubble because he’s not…I don’t know. It could be the other way around, too. You don’t know until you give it a chance. I’m always making an effort to be open-minded and to pay the respect that I would like to be paid. That’s one of my main things.

Since I don’t have a religious belief I don’t walk around everyday thinking on whether I’m sinning or not, that’s just not part of my life. I don’t break the law. I know what happens if you break the law. I have no need for doing that.  There is some truth to those saying, “Do what thou wilt that be the whole of the law,” but if you live literally by that you’re not going to get very far. Probably, if you do you’ll just end up in jail. But if you live according to that line with sense then you might get pretty far. It doesn’t make sense to just drive full-blast through a red light ’cause you’re in a hurry, you wanna get back and see the beginning to the football game. Don’t worry because you won’t ever again. There are rules, there are laws to try and make society work so, if you go by those you probably won’t get into too much trouble.

Respect, that’s the main thing. Get something out of life, because you don’t know what’s gonna happen later.

Just curious Livia did these happens to you even before you met King or after?
 I only ask because King for some reason has always been surrounded by so many things like that.  As I mentioned earlier I have had many incredible experiences with what you and King correctly call the Powers of the Unknown.  A lot of it came from certain Satanic rituals and other occult things that I have done.  And some just came out of nowhere.  One time it was because of a spirit of a girl that I used to know.  And I have met other people over the years who seem to open up to me about incredible things they have experienced too.  Things they will not tell anyone else due to fear.  This usually happens after they find out I am an active member in the Church of Satan.  I guess they figure I would understand better.  But no one seems to have had as many experiences as King has had going back to his old home in Denmark and even stuff that has happened in the studio over the years.  Maybe it is just something about his aura or something that attracts so much, I have no idea.  But it is real interesting stuff to talk about.

Unexplainable things have happened to me since I can remember. One of my first memories ever I still can't "logically" explain to myself, and things like that have been happening to me all throughout my life and the latest one was actually just 2 days ago. :)
Unfortunately I seem to have been around mostly malicious powers instead of respectful ones during my childhood, and that made me approach them with a bit of apprehension and reservation.
The ones that are as respectful towards us as we are to them, are more than welcome in our home.

So Prhill what you are saying is that if you would experience anything like Livia, King and you have experienced i should purchase some Satanic Books and try to make some of thr rituals?
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 06, 2008, 11:21:34 am
I don't thing doing Satanic Rituals will guarentee any kind of experience.  Many Satanists do rituals and do get the results of the ritual, but never have any kind of experiences with the powers of the Unknown.   Doing magic is actually more about your own emotions, whereas some of things that myself, King and Livia have experienced are something entirely different.  Many people who never experiment with the Occult or any kind of rituals have experiences with these kinds of things, just like many people who do practice things in the occult or perform Satanic Rituals never do.  It is hard to say why so many people experience these things and why so many never do.  A lot of people in the Church of Satan do not even believe in these kinds of things.  It is a very personal thing, and every one in the COS has very different opinions about these sorts of things.  Most COS members and other Satanists do not even believe in the Supernatural at all.

Anyway Livia sorry to hear about the negative experiences you had.  I do know how that can be and it is not fun.  Just like I know how it can be when it is good.  It is just like anything else there are your good forces or spirits and your bad forces or spirits or whatever they are?  I always wondered if King ever believed that any of these things were any kind of demon or something?  I sort of doubt that he beleives in actual demons, but who knows?
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 06, 2008, 11:25:06 am
I would love to ask you Livia what kind of things you have seen, including the one you said that just happened two days ago?  But it might be too personal so I will leave it up to you of course?
Maybe King will include them in futur lyrics like he has done with so many of his own experinces!

Post by: Livia Zita on April 06, 2008, 07:03:06 pm
Too many things have happened for me to be able to write it all down, but I can tell you an early story...

I was about 10 years old, me and my sisters had a bunkbed. I slept on the top part at the time.
I woke up in the middle of the night, scared out of my wits for no reason whatsoever. I huddled on the bed, and that's when I saw a black shape materialize at the ceiling. Mind you, it wasn't a human shape, just a blob.
It started flying around the room, always close to the ceiling, and I kept watching it. I think "it" realized that I was watching it, it flew straight at me and I was immobilized by fear. It reached me, and started hitting my head, from all sides, bumping against it as hard as it could. I pulled the covers over my head, and hunkered down on my bed, wishing it would go away. It hit my head a few more times, then it stopped. I remained under the covers for about 30 minutes more, then peeked out, and I just saw this thing fly on top of a huge wardrobe we had. I stayed awake all night, kept my eye on the spot where it disappeared.
Next morning I called my dad in, and asked him to please look on top of the wardrobe, a huge moth had flown there. (I tried to explain it to myself by thinking it has just got to be a huge moth.) He looked, but of course there was nothing there.
And the more I thought about it, the less sense it made.
We were living in the middle of Budapest, moths do not live there. Our light was turned off. But most importantly, it was winter time, no bugs, no moths. Every window, door was closed, and that weird thing was as big as your hands next to each other, fingers spread out.

Anyways... I always try to search for a logical explanation before I scream: "there's a spirit!!". And believe me, I have been searching for answers for this ever since it happened (and that was a long time ago :D ) and I still can't explain it.
Might not sound like much, but this was the one remembered right now. :)
As for the one a few days ago... well, let's just say I saw an apparition. Maybe later in time I will share the experience.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 07, 2008, 07:04:59 am
wow!  That is quite an experience Livia.  Thank you very much for sharing it is very much appreciated. 
It is interesting too how you and King always mention about having respect toward these poweres.  And Anton LaVey always talks about in his books how to have respect with these forces as much as you would respect yourself.  Just like he would always say when you invite Satan in during rituals and stuff to invoke these powers not as masters to bow down too and woreship and not as slaves to command and treat with out respect, but as companions and friends or welcomed houseguests.  I certainly look forward to hearing more about your other experiences should you decide to share again sometime, thanks again :D:

Post by: prhill on April 07, 2008, 07:20:47 am
As for KingoftheRotton,  yes I know you will find the Satanic Bible a very interesting read!  It is much more interesting and real than other so called bibles that is for sure :D  It is the only book that really teaches about the realities of life and human nature and the universe.  It is also the only book you will find that teaches real magical theories and practices, unlike all of the other white light books out there that just teach mumbo jumbo non-sense.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 07, 2008, 08:01:27 am
I was just thinking about that black shape that you had an experience with Livia. 
It reminded me about one of the guys from the band "Black Sabbath".  I think it might have been Geezer Butler who talked about once he starting reading books on magic and he painted his whole apartment black and put up inverted crosses and crucifixes everywhere along with many pictures of the Devil.  Anyway he said that one night he woke up in bed and saw a huge black shape hovering above him and his bed and for some reason he thought it might have something to do with the book.  So he ran out of bed to get the book and throw it out but it was suddenly missing.  I believe this was mentioned in those books "Lords of Chaos" and "Lucifer Rising".  Just thought I would mention that.  It sounded almost similiar to your experience. I wonder what the hell this black shape thing is?
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Livia Zita on April 07, 2008, 01:43:03 pm
Yeah, I wonder what or who it was...
One thing's for sure, I am not so keen on meeting it again. :gah:

Maybe someday I'll tell you about the powers I had in my room when I was about 16 years old. They were very malicious (the house had a war history), and I was way too close to finding out what it actually looks like when these evil powers attack and wreck your room. That was the most scary experience in my life.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 07, 2008, 01:52:04 pm
Oh wow Livia you sure have had some incredible experiences!  Well should you decide to share those times I certainly would look forward to it.  Maybe those were spirits of people who were killed in a war or something and that is why they were so malicious.  Who knows. 
So these experiences Livia are they the reasons you eventually discovered Satanism like they did with King?  Or was it something else?
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Tuwin on April 07, 2008, 01:52:54 pm
That's nuts Livia. I have researched a lot about this stuff as it fascinates me and to this day i have never witnessed, felt, or experienced anything remotely spiritual. Almost everyone around me says they have. I lived with my aunt for a long time and everyone in the house says they saw a ghost that would walk back and fourth between the bathroom and the kitchen but i never saw it.

Either everyone "thinks" they saw this stuff and just ramp it up in there head or i am just not sensitive enough

Post by: prhill on April 07, 2008, 02:15:20 pm
And you know it is funny that in spite of all of the experinces I have had, and yet whenever I use my Ouija Board nothing ever happens.  But many other people experience weird stuff only when they use the Ouija board.  The world of the unknown is very confusing.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: prhill on April 08, 2008, 06:58:27 am
A guy I work with who has had tons of weird experiences was telling about how when he still lived at home he woke up in the middle of the night scared and could not move or scream as he was being caressed by "Black Dwarfs" for several minutes until they let him go, then his scream came out and his mother came in.  he explained what happened and her response was "Oh no now it is happening to you too".  It turns out this has happened to her many times and they have heard her screaming in the night like that but she never explained why until it started happening to him.
That reminded me of one of my own experinces that was somewhat simliar to that some years back.

i only had the experience i told before with someone who walked in the middle of the day in his empty appartment allthough he was dead, im pretty sure i saw him... he had died just a weak before.
allthough i said it to his wife and she said she had experienced the same, and that he was trying to cantact her.
it is been 6 years almost since that day and she now have lost his spirit who appearently was trying to get her to wrap a red thread around a doll they had named the same as him, only if that had happend he could rest in peace. ever since that day she hasent heard from his spirit

Post by: prhill on April 08, 2008, 08:10:12 am
Yes Livia that co-workers experience was interesting.  He has had many other experiences that he has told me about.  He said it still scares him but now he is more curious about these things than scarred.  That one incident I mentioned with me was like that where I was paralyzed and couldn't scream, but something was like a weight on top of me and I do not know why, but I felt like it was trying to get inside of my spirit or something to control me.  In my mind I fought real hard against it and screamed mentally threats and stuff.  It finally lifted and the atmosphere in my room went back to normal again.
Ironically a few years later I actually did have the spirit of a girl I knew trapped inside and around my aura haunting me.  But that is a real long and personal story to get into as to why she was there for two and a half years and what it took to release her finally.

You know here in Chicago after the huge jet that crashed in the late 70's near O'hare airport there were people that lived around there who saw things for years follwing the crash.  People would appear in their homes out of nowhere asking where they could find their luggage or when is the next connecting flight, etc  then they would dissappear. All kinds of crazy things.

I was choked by a spirit in my bed one night. I woke up with hands around my neck and it struck me as odd because they grabbed me from above me and then wrapped around to behind me, which means the spirit was floating through my bed/the floor. Thats why I have a soft spot for The Floating Head.. except instead of strong hands around my neck, they were very weak, clammy and feeble. Which made it so much scarier for me

How one could have gotten into an apartment building on the 5th floor with everything closed, especially that the thing was about 25-30 centimeters big
Moths do not materialize out of thin air
Why wasn't it on top of the wardrobe the next day, I kept my eye on the spot it landed on all night, never looked away
I don't think moths usually fly during winter when it's -25 celsius degrees outside
Why would a moth keep attacking me?

To those questions I could not find an answer to.

I was just talking to that co-worker of mine who has seen a lot and he was telling me about another incident at a funeral where the deceased took control of one of his relatives at the service.  The one cousin suddenly starting freaking out and then started to speak with the voice of the deceased instead of his own.  He even started talking exactly like the deceased would talk instead of the way he usually would talk.  Plus his face changed and became distorted looking very much like the person who was in the casket.  He started to address his loved ones that he was leaving behind with personal messenges and stuff.  Of course the xtian priest doing the service was freaking out not knowing what to do.  After the deceased was done delivering his goodbyes and messeges he left as the cousin suddenly became himself again and had no idea what had happened.  My co-worker said it was an incredible thing to witness and he will never forget it.

wow envenomed627  that sounds like quite an experience!  Did it just let you go eventually or did you have to fight it off somehow?

That part I'm not quite sure of, I did start to struggle with it but I feel like it just let go on its own terms, it only lasted a couple of seconds but it was a very odd feeling

There is also that famous incident that happened here in Chicago where that nurse that was murdered and then she started taking possession of another nurse from the same hospital she worked at, and used her to give info to the cops about her killer.  When the cops brought the guy in and he became freaked out by the info the cops had about what happened that only he and the victim knew about so he he confessed, and once he was brought to justice the dead nurse never bothered the live nurse again.

I know that King has said many times how he has invoked or invited spirits into the concert hall during concerts and stuff, and anyway I was watching some videos of some old Mercy shows from 1983 and 1993 and I noticed that at times during "Satans Fall" when he wouldnt be singing he would be doing the sign of the devil horns with his hand and then start whispering or talking to someone even though he was alone.  I often wondered if he knew somehow that there was a spirit or force there that he was comminicating with. or if he assumed it and would talk to it?

I was at a show from the last tour in Chicago!  During "Come to the Sabbath" is when Jodie came out and set up a mini Satanic Altar with black candles, a goat head of Satan and some other stuff and followed the lyrics of the song about performing a ritual from the Satanic Bible as Satan was being summoned!  The whole place went insane during that so I know what you mean!

I had an odd experience when i was kid too...
My older brother and I were playing in my room, we were alone at home and the room door was locked 'cause it was broken and wouldn't close. So something hit the door from outside, realy strong. My brother and I satared at each other, we were like "wtf just hapened there?". Then, it hit again, stronger. The second time, the key that was pluged on the door flew away to the other side of the room, so powerful the hit was. The first thing we thought was that someone had arrived home and was playing tricks on us. So we opened the door and searched the entire house and no one was there. It realy scared the hell out of us.

i know this, experienced the same the other day, someone knocked really hard at the bathroom door but no one was outside. also someone knocked on the door, usually you would wait for a reply if you knocked a door and then knock again this did not happen, and it was our back door so no kids tricks, very weird. also once had a girlfreind who said our house was hunted...
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: Walter_BR on April 17, 2008, 03:59:52 pm
Yeah, very weird... But i don't think that my house is haunted... I still live in the same house and still sleep in the same room and that never happened again...


But, the house I used to live between '98 and '00 were really haunted... My entire family thinks the same!!
Real weird things happened there, like, the radio would turn the volume up to the max without anyone touching(sometimes, he even turned on by itself and turned the volume up), the TV turned on by itself several times too.... And believe, sometimes, things "jumped" from the desk, or the closet to the floors, without anyone in the room... And my brother tells that someone or something threw a pen at him when he was alone....

        What About "The Oath"?Prhill?That is Done By "Mercyful Fate".
By the Symbol of the Creator,I swear henceforth to be
A faithful Servant of his most puissant Arch -Angel
The Prince Lucifer
Whom the Creator designated as His Regent
And Lord of this World,Amen
If That Is Not About Satan,I don't know what is.

I love the Oath!  That is one of the greatest songs ever!
But every song King has ever done is about Satan in some way.  A lot of people used to ask King why he dropped the Satanic lyrics when Mercyful Fate broke up the first time?  And King was like "What"?  As he pointed out that just because a person doesnt use the word Satan in a song it doesnt mean it is not Satanic.  Then he pointed out correctly how some people really don't know what Satanism is really about and how it isn't about walking around and being evil and saying Hail Satan every second and stuff. 
I love how people think that if a song has the word Satan in it it makes them Satanic??  You have to love King for
knowing the difference.  And for singing about Satanism in every song without making it obvious except to those who KNOW. :D

  As a long time fan of Mercyful Fate/King Diamond,I would like to share my view of what I consider "The Two Greatest Metal Bands I
Have Ever Had The Pleasure Of Hearing".I did have the honor of meeting KD & Band in '87' in S.F. Ca."Abigail" Tour.However,2yrs prior When I was "15", I got my hands on 'Mellissa'.It was a cassette that I purchased at a swap meet in Northern California.I was already into Metal;but this Album cover had my curiosity.I had never heard Mercyful Fate, though I had heard of the band.I was blown away.I was mesmerised by Kings' voice as well as the Music that was delivered by the entire band.As I followed along the path of MF I discovered that there was more than met The Eye.Remember,I was 15 and Metal was life to me.My curiosity of the meaning of Kings' song writing only strengthened and fueled my desire to KNOW the origin from whence it came.That,is where what I consider to be Supernatural had been unvailed.My will was free and I keep my belief close to myself.I, by no means claim to be a Satanist.I've sought the knowledge of more than one religeon and gained wisdom from them all.I have never heard King comment on his Supernatural experiences apart from his song lyrics.Pardon me for being so intentionally self centered.I would like all viewers/- members to know King Diamond & Mercyful Fate are "The Supernatural".

King has stated many times that many of the lyrics in his songs are based on the real life experiences he has had with the supernatural or as he calles it the Powers of the unknown.  He has described these experiences many times over the years in many interviews.  Many of which I described in the very begining of this post. 
I also started a thread recently talking about the meaning behind his lyrics that I got straight from him in interviews over the years that you may want to check out as well.  His music and lyrics and beliefs come straight from his heart as he has said many times.

I actually had quite an experience on Sunday with the powers of darkness and the unknown.  It was very bizzare to say the least and I am sure this power or force or whatever was communicating with me or answering me about something I had just done and said.  It was done in sort of a humorous way as well.  Lets just say that King was right when he said that sometimes these powers can and will move and raise objects in your home.  It was just funny in a way and left no doubt that it was communicating about what I had just said and done with the object that it manipulated.  ANd then it continued into the evening as well in an even more bizzare way still as if in response to the earlier incident and everything.  These powers are incredible and do seem to have a funny sense of humor :D:  I am just glad they didn't break the item, which was surprising considering how hard they pushed, , raised  and threw it.
On another note I just received my new issue of the Devils Diary which aside from my own article had a cool piece by a Satanic witch  talking about their own weird experinces both inside and outside of their ritual chamber!

I never talk about things of this nature, my wife does frequently but when I was a little boy my greatgrandmother died...I woke one morning and she was sitting beside my bed reading to me only there was no sound I yelled for my mother and when she came in there were tears coming from a pic of her. Needless to say it freaked me out.

Another...I lived in a house in my teens that had burned down over and over since like 1915 or so. I always saw an old lady and my mom also saw/felt her. She would caress my cheek every night and that's how I fell asleep. Noone liked staying at my house, then it burned down, and has caught fire 2 times since then.

My wife's mom's old house was crazy too. There will be 3 knocks, LOUD KNOCKS, and no one there, happens 4 or 5 times daily, even to the new tenants

wow your kidding.  Well that one spirit who has been causing me some real bad times lately did turn out to be my father which is what I thought.  He was an asshole loser in life and in death.  This is the second time I have had to hire an expert to confront and force someone to retire into the beyond for good which gets expensive and crazy when the confrontation begins!  I am glad that not all of my experiences with these things have been all bad or violent as I have had some good ones and some humerous.  But I seem to attarct the evil people that I knew in life as well who cause me grief once they die and they hang around me instead of moving on.  But they are gone now!

I just read that the House of Blues here in Chicago is haunted by the ghost of a little girl who died of an illness and people still see and talk to her.  The funny thing is that this is the place where I saw King in concert a few years ago.  So here is King who always has spirits and powers around him singing at a place that has a spirit in it.  And he was singing that night about another little spirit girl named Abigail.  I wonder if the spirit girl of the House of Blues was watching King sing about Abigail that night!

^ Spirits are energy.And since they died somewhere painfully/violently,some of the energy remained there.So they're kinda attached to the place.Or even a person.

I've had my parts with the 'other side' but for now,I know it's not smbd I knew.But getting a slap out of nowhere is pretty fuckin' cool :gah: Or someone/smth touching me from behind...too fukken weird xD

Curtain getting electrified...now that's smth...

Or a better one: through the internet I heard about Giuseppe Tartini and his masterpiece 'El Trillo Del Diavolo' (The Devil's Trill).I only found it on youtube and I heard only a part,played by Vanessa Mae.Then I found the full-length played by a dude.But the intro bored me so I tried to write it again,to search for another one.But...

the keyboard didn't write anymore.And it I couldn't choose smth else with the mouse.I checked the batteries,they were full.I kept trying for 1 whole minute.Then I said 'wtf?' and didn't have any alternative but to listen to it.The second it stopped,the title I wrote appeared in the search bar.

Now tell me that ain't fukken creepy! o_O And the coolest thing about this song is that The Devil actually played it and Tartini dreamt it and copied it.So...message from S.,listen to my song.

We have had some things happen in our house too. On a couple of occasions the bedroom door would slam and I mean SLAM shut. At first I thought it was a draft or something but soon discovered this not to be possible. Also, I have woken up to find water or some sort of liquid on the floor. At first I thought this was a broken water pipe or something so I called the landlord who sent a plumber. Before the plumber arrived the wet spot was dry. The wet spot has since returned numerous times over the last three years. Then one night I was on the bed reading a car magazine when all of a sudden someone started coughing right next to me. Whoa! I was the only one there. Since then I've heard some noises that sound faintly like  laughing or talking. After trying to figure all of this out and not coming up with any good conclusions it hit me like a train one day..........my wife told me that the landlord had mentioned to her that the lady who rented the place for the last 17 years had died in that bedroom.

Awesome experiences :king:

I guess I'll have to share mine aswell..

My house has always been haunted by dark forces..

My first experience was when I was sitting in my room playing guitar.
Suddenly my computer started up and a church organ (like in the song Midnight) started to play through my speakers.

That may sound silly but damn, I couldn't sleep that night.

One evening when I was watching the movie "Omen", my dog were lying next do me on the floor. Then my mother came home from work and asked me if there was anything special on TV.. I said no, there isn't. But there is a great movie right now..
She asked me what movie I was watching and I told her I was watching Omen.

She had heard about it and curiously asked me what it was about.
So I told her that it was about this kid who is the son of Satan and that he has the number 666 in his head.

When I said "666", the door to the living room slammed into the wall. The glass inside it was shaking for about 10 seconds after the incident.

This was really scary and my dog was scared to death aswell.

Another experience was when me and my friend were playing some music, suddenly the curtains started flying in the air, about 2 feet from the ground. They were frozen 2 feet in the air, just flying there, then after about six seconds or so, they dropped and we were shitting out pants, lol.

Later that same night we were about to get to bed, so I covered my windows with the curtains like I always do.. Then we left the room to brush our teeth and such.. When we both came back, the curtains were GONE(!). I swear, they were totally gone. I thought this was a fckin joke but no, that was what actually happened.
I've never found my curtains since then.

Alright, these was not that scary, but what I'm about to share with you now may not seem realistic. But this is the truth..

Alright.. I kinda got used to the supernatural events that took place in my house. I didn't actually think about them that much, they didn't bother me anymore.

I'm a really deep person who's searching for the truth and I'm really fascinated by the occult, so.. Stupidly, I bought The Satanic Bible, written by LaVey.

I started to read. I read some kind of spell or such.. Some kind of holy script or what to call it..
After reading that text, I noticed that I just read the text categorized under the "How to sell your soul" chapter.

By reading this I kinda sold myself to the "dark side" or w/e to call it.. Things really started to get bad by now.

That same night, I woke up because I was getting choked by "someone" standing over my bed. I struggled to get free and finally I could breath again. I ran out of my room, into the toilet and what I saw in the mirror was just terrifying..
There were red marks from someone's fingers on my throat.
I was scared to death and I didn't go back into my room that night.
I was attacked by a non-living creature, believe it or not.

I knew this happend because I read something in the black bible, no doubt about it.

Several nights later I turned of the light and were about to get some sleep.. I lied in my bed, facing against the wall when I suddenly started to hear whispers. I tried to listen what was being said but I couldn't understand what was said. After a few seconds I heard a horrible demonic scream. I almost shit my pants!

I turned on the light to see what was going on, but everything was as usual.
I turned of the light and tried to sleep again.. Seconds after I turned of the light, laying my head on the pillow I started to hear breathings.. Someone was in my room, breathing.
It came closer and closer and at last it was laying beside me in the bed(!)
I could feel it's cold breathing, breathing in my neck.. My hair started to move becuase of the heavy breathings.

I just laid still, I was completely terrifyed.
Finally, it all stopped.

I contacted my friend, who's a satanist.. I told him my experiences.
He asked me if I was being visited by a "Djinn". I didn't know what a Djinn was so I asked him what that meant.
He started to explain that a Djinn is some kind of "messenger" serving Satan.

At this point I was really worried..
He suggested that I should either confess to the black magic and join the dark side or getting rid of the black bible and confess myself to God/Jesus.

I didn't know what to do at that point so I just kept the book.

Several nights later, I went to bed and my dog joined me.
I turned of the light and my dog was sleeping right beside me..
After like two minutes, my dog starts shaking. So I turn on the light to see what's going on..
He was shaking for a long time, suddenly he just stood up in the bed, staring at the door with his tail between his legs, shaking..

What happend then really scared the shit out of me.
The door closed. I ran to it, trying to open it, but it was locked aswell..
Now, the interessting thing here is that I don't have a key to lock my door.

I couldn't get out so I jumped out from my window and then entered through the front door..
When I came into my house again, my door was opened and my dog was still standing in my bed, staring at the door, staring at me, shaking.

This really scared me to death..I started to think that I had lost my mind or that I was being crazy.

Now, the last and maybe the most terrifying thing that has ever happend to me..

I was watching TV, it was kinda late and nobody but me were home.. I got hungry so I walked into the kitchen and what I saw was just unbelieveable..

ALL kitchendoors and boxes were open and dragged out EXACTLY 1 feet.
The chairs were dragged out from the table aswell.

I found this really uncomfortable.
I closed the boxes and everything and went back to my room.. When I sat down in my couch, I heard a really big bang in the living room.

After what just had happend in the kitchen, I was scared to death to go check what just happend. But of course, I did..
When I entered the living room, the TV was on with no sound and the door was opened. This was really getting on my nervs.

Nothing more happend until I went for bed (again..).
I've my guitars hanging on the wall, suddenly someone is strumming one of my guitars and I turn on the light as fast as I can but of course there's nobody there.

Four days later I got rid of the black bible and honestly, it's all better now..

I am still getting visited tho.. But not by an evil force but by my grandfather.
He died in March and since then, I've experienced strange events in my room aswell.

My grandfather had an alarmclock that he used to get up for work.
When he died I took that clock and placed it in my room.

One night when I was sleeping, I heard something ringing and I noticed it was the clock ringing, it was 4:00 AM. I was annoyed because I hadn't slept for many days. So I removed the battery from the clock so it wouldn't wake me up again. And it didn't..

Next night, at 4:00 AM, it rang again. Even tho there were NO battery in it. I thought that this was kinda wierd so I put the clock in my closet.

Two nights later, something else happend.. I woke up by someone sitting in the bed, at my feet. My feet fell down into the "hole" that was created by the person who sat there.

I was terrifyed.

Now, some months later.. It's all good.
I sleep good at night and everything's fine!

I know there are sceptics about supernatural things like mine, but I'm just telling you the truth and it's up to you if you want to believe it or not.

No, I don't do drugs or anything like that.. I don't even drink.
This isn't just made up in my mind, this is real.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading my long story.

I just want to say one more thing..
It does exist.

Hail! :king:

Christrikk: All i can say is, wow!  And you are right.  things do exist that have not been explained yet.  Which is why King in his email to me when i asked him about it said that this is why he calls Satan the Powers of Darkness and the Unknown, because it is just that as no one has been able to explain what these things are that people keep experincing

Yeah, it was pretty scary.. But my "bad" english doesn't make you scared enough when I'm about to tell you about my experiences, lol.

That is totally correct.
Whatever it is, it's really POWERFULL!

I know he has had some real big experiences.  The one where he was being attacked and choked reminded me of an early one that i had years ago. 
But this guy I work with he has seen people possesed by dead relatives, he had a guy that was laughing at him when he was all alone in an empty room, he has seen some real crazy stuff happen while using a Ouija board, he saw his dead aunt once, and many other crazy things that still freak him out talking about it.

prhill: yes I sure have. Another time I was alone in the house listening to C.O.F.'s Devil Woman with the only light being from about six candles in the living-room and all of a sudden one of the candles, a black candle, went berserk. The flame was like 10 to 12 inches high when it should have been about 1 or 2 inches high.

For years King has said how he was afraid to tell his parents about his experiences with these Powers thinking that they would think that he was crazy, only to find out that his parents also believed in these things because of having had some experiences as well.  Only we never knew what they were, but finally I saw in an interview where he talked about a couple of them.

 King said that just before his dad died he told him that his dead grandfather paid him a visit and stood at his bedside.  And that the family had an old grandfather clock that did not work for years until the very moment that King's dad died the clock started working again on it's own.  He also mentioned that his mother knew when her mom had died because she was doing dishes and that the knife and forks kept somehow crossing each other which is a sign of a death in the family and that sure enough it was at that moment that her mother passed away.

Bellwitch:  I agree there are fakes out there.  I know people that could do it for me and really do know what they are doing and would find out a lot, but it is an expensive process and I am not that curious enough to pay that much for it. 
It would be cool though.  I know that Psychologists will go into a patients past lives and discover reasons from back then that explain why certain things are going on in their lives now which they use to cure them

These people generally charge about a thousand dollars for the work that they do.  Sometimes even more which is why they are millionaires.  But for divinations I think they charge a couple hundred only.  They do everything though from Magic to divinations, seances, necromancy, etc.

I don't blame you.  There are books out there that give methods on how you can discover for yourself these things as well that you could always try if you really wanted know.

Where I live there are miles of different forest preserves around and for decades people have complained of going through the woods and then suddenly stopped as the trees around them would all suddenly sway slowly and then violently which eventually would be followed by deep breathing sounds that then sounded like chanting. Witnesses have said it would take hundreds of people to make this happen and yet not even one person was seen in the area as they searched while freaking out as this happened.

Experts say it might have something to do with the fact that Satanists and other occultists do rituals in these woods and might be summoning up something and do not know how to send it back so they are still in the woods. Another theory is about these Tree spirits called Dryads.  Even one camp that used to be busy in the woods had to close and as now over taken by weeds as if it never existed especially after the Boy scouts never went back due to many such experiences there

People that charge over a thousand dollars for readings are scam artists fleecing the gullible
Regarding "Satanic Magazines" there are a few, though not many are legitimate, and most have ceased regular publication.

Yeah "Satan's Sweet Slavery" magazine was always one of my all time favorites but it is no longer around :(  King did a great interview with that one as well of course.
Title: Re: King and the Supernatural!
Post by: HellOnWheels on September 11, 2015, 08:03:45 am
Though that may be the case, the person behind it advocates animal sacrifice, church burning, and has an axe to grind against the Church Of Satan, which King is a member of.  Just because a magazine claims to be Satanic, doesn't mean it is

She is a Satanist and was in the COS and was involved with Rev Crowley and had Magister's help her with it not too mention other COS priests like Rev Thorn. Not that it matters as most Satanists especially these days are not in the COS. But she is a Satanist and a very nice person I had the chance to talk to a few times
