The Sinister Screen RETURNS!

November 3rd, 2018 Comments off

The Sinister Screen was first launched in February of 2005 as a project of the now-defunct Church of Satan Special Interest Groups. Since then, it had become an independent forum for movies of general interest to Satanists and others of like-mind. The site took a long hiatus but has returned with a revamped format.

Review submission requests are open to Church of Satan members only and we will verify your membership before approval. All reviews must be focused, well-written, and reasonably connected to Satanism and the Satanic philosophy. As of present, discussion privileges have been and will continue to be opened up only to select members of the Church of Satan whom are directly known by the webmaster. This may or may not change in the future but it should provide the reader with some additional input from fairly respected and insightful individuals. In particular, we’d like to see the entire CoS Video List reviewed, but other titles are certainly welcome.

NEW Podcast: Vintage Vinyl Vivisection

July 17th, 2018 Comments off

The Accusation Network brings you its latest podcast: Vintage Vinyl Vivisection.

Vintage Vinyl Vivisection (or, V3 for short) takes you under the skin and straight to the meat of classic heavy metal and hard rock albums. No out-of-touch hipster nonsense or irrelevant political banter here. Just straight talk on records we all know and (mostly) love, brought to you by those who know what they’re actually talking about. Genre-related tangents will also occur.

Joining us in studio for the inaugural episode is Mr. John Shaw (www.isatanist.com) as he and Matt talk about the third studio album from Def Leppard — Pyromania. Discussion includes album charting, the making of the album, replacing a guitar player, the cover art, and the three standout tracks, as well as Pyromania’s wide appeal and more. But, since it’s never just about the album, you’ll also gain insight on Matt’s fledgling video editing efforts, how metal gets you all the girls, who started the rise of pop metal, “doing it” songs, selling out, John’s Def Lep triangle theory, totally weird ‘80s music videos, and modern kids who need to not be boring. Show theme and additional music provided by Gyps Fulvus (www.gypsfulvus.net)

NEW Podcast: Strange Moments In Cultural History

November 13th, 2016 Comments off

smich-symbol

In early-2016, Purging Talon began production on The Accusation Party podcast, a series dedicated to putting to rest the often blatant cultural nonsense of such repressive thoughts and actions as third-wave feminism, Islam’s attempt at compatibility with the West, the bias selectivity of so-called hate speech, the war against personal eugenics, and still others. And while this podcast continues with its critical mission, there was certainly room for less serious content; an additional podcast series that takes a lighter and certainly more humorous look at our cultural past.

Strange Moments in Cultural History is the class you never took in high school. Grab a seat up front and turn off your brain as we fill your head with tales of oddballs, villains, outcasts, flops and other lesser-known events in this thing we call human existence. The debut episode is already available in the same podcast feed that carries The Accusation Party, and with more episodes to follow. Also, prepare for yet a third podcast series to surface from Purging Talon in the near future.
