CHAPTER 6 PARAPSYCHOLOGY
In the music trade this is called a "subliminal message" and is referred to as "backward masking". This masking is evident only to the conscious mind when the record is played backwards. When the record is played in the normal manner, the message, of course, is not discernable to the conscious mind. You may prove to yourself the truth of what I say. Take one of the records with a subliminal message on it; put your phonograph in the neutral position and turn the record backwards with your finger. The message will then be loud and clear.
Astoundingly, these Satanic types of subliminal messages have even been implanted on records that, superficially, appear to be of a religious nature. One of the first rock groups to use this method in an attempt to influence the minds of the young people was the Beatles. Tom Gondolf, chief engineer for Goodnight Audio, said, "The Beatles used to put backwards voices on their records all the time."
"The Lucifer of Rock"
In today's modern rock groups, Mick Jagger is considered to be the leader of the Satanists. By those in the business, he is known as "The Lucifer of Rock." The Stones' song, "Sympathy for the Devil", has become the unofficial anthem for the Satanists.
Another of the groups, the Black Oak Arkansas, has a song entitled "The Day Electricity Came to Arkansas." When played backwards the song says, "Satan, Satan, Satan, He is God, He is God, He is God." This group, along with others such as The Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, and The Rolling Stones are all into the occult.
In the cases where the rock groups are really trying to subvert the minds of the young people, this is their out-right attempt to destroy the youth's morals and lead them into drugs and open sex. Sometimes, even the name of the group will give an indication of the motives of the group, for example, the group known as AC-DC is a Satanic "S." AC-DC has songs entitled, "Hell Ain't Such A Bad Place To Be," "Highway To Hell," and "Hell's Bells."
Led Zeppelin has a song called "Stairway to Heaven" and that song, when played backwards, says in part, "I will sing because I live with Satan," Another part of the same song, when played backwards, says, "There's no escaping it, my sweet Satan. The one will be sad who makes me sad, whose power is Satan." Played normally the song says, "If there's a bustle in hedgerow don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May Queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on."
When the forward message and the backward message are put together in the unconscious mind, one could be influenced to believe that the path to choose would be the path to Satan...

Chapter 12 Breaking Satan's Grip
...You must ask your teenager, on a one-on-one basis, "Why do you like Rock so much?"
One of the most common answers will probably be, "I like Rock because of the beat. It makes me want to dance." This is very true, but you should point out to your child that Rock & Roll, especially Heavy Metal Rock & Roll, is based on the Blues, a song style begun by the post Civil War American Negro sitting amidst destroyed plantations and burned out cities. Death and destruction was everywhere. It is a style filled with smutty sexual references and a "things will never get better" mentality. Both the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin started out as Blues bands. The Blues itself, with its churning twelve-bar changes stopping and starting in the same hypnotic sequence time after time, evolved from African voodoo beats and tribal music. Black slaves carried it with them on the Dutch and British ships heading for America. By the end of the Civil War, the Blues were born.
Rolling Stones' bassist Bill Wyman made these chilling comments about just how important the Blues are to HIS band:
"...Whenever we rehearse and learn new numbers, every other thing we play is a jam of an old Elmore James or Muddy Waters or Chuck Berry thing. I know a lot of people say, 'What are you playing that old stuff for?' But we're not doing it for sentimental reasons -- we're doing it to retain the FEELING of those blues and R & B (Rhythm & Blues) things."
That's why kids like the beat so much. That's why the music makes them want to start dancing. Over a century later, those evil African voodoo influences are still weaving their primitive spell on a whole new generation of American young people...
[Brown, Rebecca, MD (1986). He Came to Set the Captives Free (p. 145-146). Whitaker House.]
Chapter 13: Doorways
...Another area often overlooked, but very powerful, is that of rock music. Rock music is Satan's music. Like so many other things, the whole movement of rock music was carefully planned and carried out by Satan and his servants from its very beginning. Rock music didn't "just happen", it was a carefully masterminded plan by none other than Satan himself.
As mentioned earlier in the book, Elaine has personally met a great number of the rock stars. They have all agreed to serve Satan in return for money and fame. They have received all they wanted, but also much they didn't expect. Their very lives and souls are destroyed. These rock stars know exactly what they are doing. They are, step by step, teaching untold millions of young people to worship and serve Satan.
Elaine attended special ceremonies at various recording studios throughout the U.S. for the specific purpose of placing satanic blessings on the rock music recorded. She and others did incantations which placed demons on EVERY record and tape of rock music sold. At times they also called up special demons who spoke on the recordings--especially in the various backmasked messages. Also, in many, many of the recordings, the satanists themselves were recorded in the background (masked by the over-all noise of the music) doing chants and incantations to summon up more demons every time one of the records or tapes or videos is played. As the music is played, these demons are called into the room to afflict the person playing the music and anyone else who is listening.
The purpose of all of this? Mind control! Mind control not only to give the listeners understanding of the messages about Satan conveyed to them by the music, but also to prevent them from recognizing their need for Jesus and the salvation He died on the cross to give us.
Many of the song lyrics are themselves actual incantations calling up demons when the song is sung. The purpose of this is two-fold: to exert control over the listener and to provide the listener with actual incantations he or she can use to send demons upon another person. This is done to gain revenge by afflicting them with illness, accidents, etc. and also to help influence another person into the bondage of rock music itself...
...All these doorways must be closed.
[Godwin, Jeff (1988). Dancing With Demons: The Music's Real Master (p.126-127) Chick Publications]
Chapter 4 THE BEAT AS BAIT
...When it comes to using the satanic voodoo beat, rappers do not have a corner on the market. Some of the biggest names in rock have traveled to the ends of the earth seeking out the primitive tribal music of Africa, India and the Caribbean. Why do they soak up the atmospheres of the exotic places, record the local sounds of native musicians, then incorporate those beats and rhythms into their own tunes?
Because they know that the voodoo rhythms have a power that can be harnessed and transferred into their own music. Simply put, the voodoo beat is demonic, and the demons have power. Rockers who have sold out to Satan want that power, so they can control their fans and increase their own fame. That's why they'll span the globe searching for it. To reject these facts because of our own ignorance is unwise.
Many rock stars have made pilgrimages to the musical heart of Satan-country to recharge their spiritual batteries. Brain Jones of the Rolling Stones journeyed to Morocco, Africa in the mid-sixties to record demon conjuring ceremonies from the Joujouka tribe. The tapes were released under the title, "The Pipes of Pan." Much of the inspiration he received from these sessions was transferred to the next Stones album -- coincidentally called, "Their Satanic Majesties Request."
John Phillips of The Mamas and Papas also spent time in Marrakesh, Morocco with his wife Michelle in 1967. He sampled African dope, tripped his brains out on LSD and ate local delicacies like sheep eyeballs and stomach linings while the G'naoua drums incessant pounding sank into his stoned-out consciousness.
When Paul McCartney recorded his "Band On The Run" album in Lagos, Nigeria in 1973, the native musicians accused the ex-Beatle of stealing their music. Mick Fleetwood, drummer for the witchy pop super-group Fleetwood Mac, recorded his solo album, "The Visitor," in Ghana, using African musicians to get the sound and feel he wanted.
In 1972, Led Zeppelin giants Jimmy Page and Robert Plant journeyed to Bombay, India. With expensive sound equipment in hand, they walked the teeming and dusty streets, recording native performers. They rented a local studio and jammed for hours with Bombay's best. The tapes went back to England with them.
One of the Rolling Stones' most satanic albums, "Goats Head Soup," was made in Jamaica. The Caribbean is full of transplanted African voodoo, and this record literally drips with demonic influence. Guitarist Keith Richards hung out with the local dope-smoking Rastas, learning their guitar riffs and hypnotic stop-start rhythms, all of which were incorporated into the next few Stones albums...
Godwin, Jeff (1990). What's Wrong with Christian Rock? (p.28-29) Chick Publications.]
Chapter 3 Is Music Really Neutral?
MUSIC IS NEUTRAL!
The neutrality of music is the root of the whole C-Rock controversy. If music is neutral, then anything goes. If not, then "Christian" Rock is a farce, a fraud and a destructive force powerful enough to blow churches apart.
Is music really neutral? The Biblical account of David's playing which drove away Saul's evil spirit (I Samuel 16:14-23) should bury that deception once and for all! Neutral music doesn't drive away demons, but David's music did. Yet many Christians today aren't satisfied with what the Bible says. They'd rather quench the Spirit, ignore the obvious, and buy the big lie. Why? To keep on sinning.
Let's use some common sense for a minute: If music is neutral, why did the thumping brass of that marching band at the football game make your pulse race? Why do they play that soothing Muzak in the dentist's office, if not to calm your nerves? And why did that passing car's blast of Heavy Metal noise make your heart pound?
The bottom line is: music is NEVER neutral! From barroom to church house, all music has some kind of positive or negative effect. Rock music is not neutral either. All Rock music promotes one thing: - animal lust...

Ch 11 Satanism
SATANIC GROTTOS AND SMALLER SATANIST CULTS
Satanism is a large movement, but because of the lack of statistics, no one knows exactly how large it is. Several rock-and-roll bands are known as Satanic rock bands and have large followings, but that does not mean that all fans are Satanists. The first band that laid claim publicly to the title of Satanist was Black Widow in 1969, the same year The Satanic Bible was released. LaVey himself listed a few bands in his final interview. "King Diamond, The Electric Hellfire Club, Acheron, Marilyn Manson, Boyd Rice, Nine Inch Nails--the list is long. . . Today's Satanic bands are the vehicle of choice for millions of young people. If they encourage a study of real Satanism, I'm all For them" Some skeptics brush off LaVey as an authority on the spiritual practices of rock bands, but as one of the fathers of modern Satanism, LaVey was in a far better position to know the power of his philosophy and the names of its devotees.
LaVey promoted Satanism far and wide, and he did not seem [to] care if followers actually joined his Church as long as they practiced Satanism. The Church of Satan Youth Communique told young Satanists, "There is no one way that a Satanist is 'supposed' to be. . . . All you have to do to be a real Satanist is start living like one." This lack of formal membership makes it difficult to determine the exact number of practicing Satanists.
[LaRock, Christopher (2011-12-24). John Todd: Beyond The Legend (Kindle Locations 219-239). Christopher Allen LaRock. Kindle Edition.]
...Todd also became acquainted with the occult underbelly of the music world as well. He was made the owner of Zodiac Productions and got to know most of the popular rock stars and musicians of that time. The occult owned the company. But had placed him there as a front man.
His experiences made him privy to certain things that go on behind the scenes of the music industry that are carefully concealed from the public.
Master copies of new rock music albums were cut months in advance. They were then taken into a secret room with a pentagram carved into the floor. (located behind closed doors up by the managers offices) On a full moon, the master would be placed upon an alter so that witches could conjure up familiar spirits. They would then order them to have the demons working under them to follow every recording made from the master. As he put it:
“ . . . there are other things. Such as things, or belongings, that actually were created by the devil. Such as rock music. . . I want to specify this; I am down on this because I am an ex-witch. Without it, witches don't function. . . One of the things that I was supposed to be was the head of this Brenner Enterprises in Texas, which explains to the IRS why I was making all this money. It was a lot of money and one of the companies I was supposed to have owned was Zodiac Productions. The name gives it away. It was a booking agency in Texas; it's changed its name, but it's still the largest booking agency in the U.S. for Rock groups. It was the group that was originally responsible for bringing the Beatles to the U.S. I got to meet most of the groups. The Beatles were already apart when I was there, but I got to meet several of them off and on, and I met almost all of the groups that were in existence then, and a lot that are in existence now. I only found about this many (holds up a few fingers) that weren't occultists, that didn't confess when they were alone that their music came from ‘supernatural forces’, as they would put it . . . When witches do a book, they do a spell over the manuscript and they command demons which are under their authority to enter every manuscript that comes off the press, every copy of that book. So when you buy that book you get a little free gift, like when you open a little Cracker Jacks box and there's a little trinket in there. Well, you get a free demon, free of charge . . . Most of the rock groups do the same thing. And I know . . . Why . . . Records . . . zoomed to the charts. Many people tell me they do this so their records will be best sellers, and you get free of charge your own private demon.” - John Todd

Demons Behind the Music Industry
Former manager of Zodiac Productions John Todd testifies to the record industry's involvement in Satanism.
Master copies of rock records would be taken into an executive "temple room" to conjure a principality-level demon into it. Lyrics by song artists were also carefully written in "witch language" to passively induce listeners into inviting various demonic spirits.

Ch 17 SPECIFIC DOORS OF ENTRANCE PART 1
Music is one of the most powerful means for demonic influence, and as we get closer to Jesus’ return, we see how Satan is becoming more blatant in the antichrist themes of bands and songs. From the comparatively innocent days of a young man named Elvis who brought “rebellious rock and roll” to the world, to the drugged out, occult themed bands of the sixties and seventies, to the Satanic rock bands of the 80’s, we have now reached a new level of occultic influence in music. It’s an age in which none of this shocks or is warned against. The music is simply ingested without filters. We never forget anything we’ve ever heard. Though we may not “recall” it consciously, we take it all in subconsciously, and the messages of anti-Jesus, drunkenness, drugs, sexual abandonment and violence is filling up a generation like filthy water in a well that is being consumed without any concern for its effects. Demonic and antichrist music unquestionably opens doors to the demonic realm. Famous artists now blatantly display upside down crosses, pentagrams, sing of the vilest of satanic themes, and no one bats an eye. We just keep making them richer by buying their products.
Dream Warfare Journal Blog: Heavy Devil Metal Fight (& Ghastly Harem)
March, 2015 (around 4 a.m.)
This warfare encounter was quite vivid, in the sense that there was much going on. It also felt to have lasted significantly longer than anything, prior.
This entry showcases how effectively Satan uses music to lead away and deceive many (Ezekiel 28:13).
Prior to falling asleep, I was pleading the blood of Jesus in my mind and commanding demons (in a general sense) to "Enter the pit!", over and over. It was early morning hours; about 4 am, or so.
Just upon dozing off, I then heard this audible, hushed voice hiss out something like "Oh sh--!".
...upon coming to in lucid-dream state, I was in the entryway of this wide open house containing hard wood floors, and with multiple rooms in a hallway, down ahead. I immediately saw multiple demons of various forms entirely surrounding me within my front and peripheral line of sight.
Suddenly, and as a once avid fan of rock music I am being very genuine -- the absolute BEST heavy metal music starting booming out from somewhere in this house (and no TV, or anything else, was turned on in my bedroom, in the physical). It was truly unlike anything I've yet heard on the radio or Internet, or on any genre of rock/metal CD that I used to own. It had just the perfect strumming guitar riffs, heavy bass chords, and this staccato-like, intense bass drum beat that I've yet to hear any heavy metal/hard rock drummer pull off.
It would've made something like Metallica or Slayer seem tame, or even amateurish, by comparison!
As this sheer adrenaline-pumping song began picking up, I felt compelled by a "higher authority" to start "cleaning house" and fighting these things. I (as I thought...) then commanded the "armor of God" (Ephesians 6:13-17) to be placed upon me, with something as I recall resembling a white short sword manifesting in my hand; representing the "sword of the Spirit" (Ephesians 6:17).
In my unrestrained soul body, I proceeded to go to war.
Fierce strikes...back elbows...and head butts to ward off attacks from behind me -- I felt like Rambo cleaning house and making war. At one point in this, I had peered back down into the hallway and into this pitch-dark room, on the first door to the right. The door creaked open as this tall, menacing...shadow-form thing manifested from the darkness and just gravely stood from the inside (I used to get creeped recalling it). That seemed to be the room where this supernatural metal song was, much loudly, emanating from.
At this point, my memory gets sketchy. I do soberly recall after a certain point of fighting, though, that something just wasn't...right, and that I was being led along.
Upon thinking this, I called out to the higher power influencing me and shouted, "Did Jesus Christ come in the flesh?!"
...the action and music then abruptly stopped.
After a momentary passing of time...the scene now changed, as I then found myself in a bedroom, crouched on all fours upon my knees, and upon the center of a king-sized bed.
And I was not alone.
In an attempt to cleanly articulate this, I was surrounded on this bed by a harem of demons (at least 3) taking the forms of ghastly attractive, nude women. I recall one being directly in front of me on her back and facing me; with at least two others on either side of the bed near to her. And, I say "ghastly" in the sense of both their intense looks at me, and their manifested perversion. To illustrate: the one in front of me, a darker-skinned woman, had an unnaturally widened, trimmed pubic region in the shape of a black bat.
I didn't stay on that bed very long!
My memory gets sketchy here again, but I believe I then spoke something at one of these "women" off to the side near a room closet (and shamefully, I think I also began to submit to temptation here; from which the Holy Spirit mercifully pulled me out).
I awoke from this shortly after.
Dream Warfare Journal Blog: Flame Within the Rock CD
September 25, 2015 (around 12 am)
I recall being in my current house, within the hallway area right between the kitchen and living room. I was in the process of considerable house cleaning (taking out trash and washing down the floors, I believe).
At some point in this, a CD player turned on in the kitchen that began playing a song by a band named Godsmack, called "Bad religion" (I was introduced to this band through friends, when I was around 15).
This version of the song that played in my dream, though, was much more unsettling. The instruments sounded washed out, and were overwhelmed by this...loud, unsettling, monotone strumming (tough to describe...). The vocalist was also very different here, as the vocals were similar to someone deeply roaring/growling out the lyrics instead of singing them.
After a short while of this song playing (I recall there were one or two others in the house with me. Not entirely sure if they were demon or angel spirits), I said out loud something like "This song just isn't appropriate...", and went over to the small blue CD player (something we used to own, actually) and opened the tray, taking the CD out. The cover of the CD was completely white, save for something that looked like a flame of fire designed around the middle.
With the CD now in my left hand, I proceeded to bend it in half and squeeze, attempting to shatter it in two. I recall this being quite tough to do, and was rather surprised at the difficulty. I believe that I at least managed to bend it enough to permanently damage it.
Afterwards, I took the damaged CD into the utility room by the kitchen, where there was a bag of trash collected in the center of the room (nothing else seemed to be present); which was toppled over and spilling out a bit onto the floor. I threw the CD in the trash bag and proceeded to pick up the rest of the spilled contents back into it.
From here, this part of the dream ended...

(SATANIC ILLUMINATI MUSIC INDUSTRY EXPOSED)
Exposes the occult/Satanic imagery present in one of Korn's most recent music videos. Disappointingly, professing Christians Brian "Head" Welch and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu returned to the band
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis (in a Rolling Stone article) also admits to being inspired by teachings from
the Satanic Bible.
