It eschews traditional esoteric cosmology that describes the Supernal or Divine that is in oppostion to the Infernal. Instead it regards all that can be described or conceived as hostile or diabolical and any attempt to describe that which is not is seen as inherently illusory.

Thanks for visiting! The story is full of cloak and dagger, initiatory strangeness, chaos, and hysteria. I am called Angela Murrow because I had to hide my identity. The owner, Christina Oakley-Harrington, holds fascinating talks and workshops in a small open space in the basement. Often transformed with draperies, altars, ritual tools, even a coffin when the vampires want to do a reading, this Temple of Arte is the venue for weekly lectures, workshops and events that attract magical people from all over the world..

One August night, Christina was hosting an interesting event that would bring me into contact with an unexpected destiny. I wanted to learn as much as possible about the psychology of those attracted to the Left Hand Path, and find out what techniques they used to invoke spirits. The consecration of a Grimoire was an opportunity to do a little research. As I descended the narrow Georgian stairs of Treadwells the smell of incense told me preparations were being made.

I had never seen the room decked out like this before! The walls were hung with long swathes of red and black cloth, the black draped altar was facing the South wall, placing the Magician in the North, facing the fiery South. The desire of the Magician to bring the Fire Element to him in order to invoke infernal spirits is obvious. In Left Hand cosmology, Fire is the element of Satan. There were a few people sitting in a half circle of chairs facing the altar.

At the center of the altar was frightening horned mask, and on its horns lay the Grimoire, bound in black leather with a reversed red pentagram embossed in the center. Candle branches illuminated the darkness with sputtering and smoky lights. A slim girl in tight black clothes, with a cloud of dark curls around her pale pretty face, paced around the room trying to keep us entertained, while some creepy ambient music clashed and thrummed to create an atmosphere of incipient chaos.

The guests sat patiently. The Ritual began with Pharaon reading from the Introduction to his little black book. Their director, John Harrigan, is a talented magician himself. They often perform at the Horse Hospital in London. Hardback pp. Author: Pharaon. This copy is Number 4 of the numbered limited edition of only 36 copies. It is signed and sigilised by the author. In this first edition, sigils to 36 daemons were individually produced.

Copy 4 is dedicated to Samael; this unique sigil is starkly remarkable. The grimoire presents an original system of Gnostic sorcery, which is both practical and cosmological.

In it, the sorcerer apprehends mystically the transience of identity. As the infernal illusory nature of reality is identified, one is enabled to ford the currents that underlie it, recognizing their sentience and power.

In this system, the sorcerer becomes a mirror for that which is beyond. As the author draws upon the entire magical tradition, the Daemons summoned are traditional ones, ones that most will recognize. It is their relevance to postmodern reality that is emphasized, however.

The author is transgressive, fiercely iconoclastic, and solitary; despite the fact that Infernal Sorcery is explicitly referred to as Cainite and relates to the work of Andrew Chumbley, the author is not a member of his Cultus Sabbatai, but instead works independently.

The book, after outlining and instructing the system of Gnosis and magical practice, lists the 36 daimons, with their natures, their meaning and relevance to the system and sigil.

The first edition, in which only 36 copies were printed, has become highly sought after even within the first six months after its release. Issue points distinguishing it from the second edition are the upright direction of the cover pentagram, and the particular decoration of the endpapers. This copy is Number 22 of the numbered limited second edition of only 72 copies. This second edition features a different decorated end paper to the first edition.
