After almost a decade since its first publication, having become a rare, sought-after title, we are happy to announce the publication of a new, revised edition of Diabolic Gnosticism: Mythos & Philosophy. With new art by Néstor Ávalos (the book’s original artist), new texts and fresh insight on the existing ones, and as provocative as ever, this is without a doubt the book’s definitive incarnation.
Walking a curious line between the Septenary current of ONA and the Anti-cosmic current of the misanthropic TOTBL, Diabolic Gnosticism: Mythos & Philosophy is an explosive push past both expanding and elaborating on a definitive and non-semitic oriented explanation of Black Flame in all its signature forms. Kafyrfos weaves together an intricate framework of philosophy blazing with Runes, Chants, Diabolic Worship and under the unmistakable influence of Friedrich Nietzsche.
The first part of this volume, Phosphoric Fyrfos, presents some of the background knowledge to the main concepts drawn upon throughout the second and third parts of the book. Phosphoric Fyrfos is divided into three sections that correspond with the level of density and reliance on causality of each set of ideas and symbols. These symbols are of particular importance because of their tangible effects in the real world.
The second part is the Apocalypse of Phosphorosophia, the first of the two illuminated texts and divided into three sections. The three sections represent different aspects of the way of coming to know of Phosphorosophia. Fyrphosphorosophia outlines the philosophy of Phosphorosophia and of Diabolic Gnosticism, and introduces Lucifer as the usurper and challenger of the Demiurge. The idea of the Destruction of the Unknowable God is central to this work. Knowledge of the Devil presents some of the more blatant and confrontational conclusions of actual Devil worship and Diabolism, whilst the last section, The Apocalypse of the Prophet ZA presents the Diabolic Gnostic perspective proper (that being the perspective of the Prophet ZA).
The last part of Diabolic Gnosticism is Black Sun Fire. Black Sun Fire appears as one section, which is mainly concerned with Diabolism, its profound misanthropy, its Bloody sacrifices and the militancy underlying Diabolism. This part is primarily conveyed through the eyes of ZA manifesting as Wotan, the warrior and the poet.
Between all of the parts of this book there is enough information for the curious and the interested to establish their own Diabolic Gnostic rituals. The philosophy, mythos, words and ideas are all available to be adapted to the impromptu rituals that are an important aspect of practicing Diabolic Gnosticism.
