What is the Black House (Church of Satan)?


The Black House was a Victorian mansion that formerly stood at 6114 California St. in San Francisco, California, in the United States. Though the building is sometimes referred to as a mansion, photographs of the building taken just before its destruction show that it was a moderately sized single family home, considerably smaller than the two small apartment buildings on either side of the property.

The house was used by Anton LaVey as the headquarters of his Church of Satan from 1966 until his death in 1997. LaVey conducted Satanic seminars and rituals at the house; one of the most notorious such rituals was the Satanic baptism of his daughter Zeena Schreck in 1967, punctuated by LaVey speaking the words “Hail Satan!” over the nude body of a female acting as the ‘Satanic Altar’.

Public ceremonies were performed at the house until 1972. LaVey lost ownership of the house in 1991 as the result of a court settlement resulting from his separation from Diane Hegarty, but LaVey was allowed to reside at the Black House until his death.

Following LaVey’s death, members of the Church of Satan unsuccessfully attempted to raise funds to repurchase the house, and it was demolished on October 17, 2001. As of May 2006, there is a new development being built on the lot where the Black House once stood.

Satanmas Carols Ave Satani


“Ave Satani” is the theme song to the 1976 film The Omen. It was composed by Jerry Goldsmith and won him an Academy Award. The Omen won an Oscar for Best Score, with Ave Satani nominated for Best Song, one of the few “foreign” language songs ever to be nominated. The language is Latin.

The title means “Hail Satan” in Latin, in opposition to “Ave Christi”. In an interview, Goldsmith says that his idea was to create a kind of Satanic version of a Gregorian chant and came up with ideas while talking with the London choir-master of the orchestra that was helping him. He decided to create something like a Black Mass, inverting Latin phrases from the Latin Mass. The choir-master, according to Goldsmith, was an expert in Latin and helped him come up with phrases – instead of saying “Hail Mary”, they decided on “Hail Satan”, and so on. So the song contains various Latin phrases inverting Christ and the Mass, such as “Ave Versus Christi”, meaning “Hail Anti-Christ”, and “Corpus Satani”, an inversion of “Corpus Christi”, the body of Christ.

A version of the song has been produced by the band Fantômas, who altered some of the lyrics so that they mean “smallest blood, body spirit” rather than “we drink the blood, we eat the flesh,” and added the word “Rotted”. Other versions of the original song have been performed by the Italian vocalist Survio Tulio, and by Gregorian. It has been used in mixes of sinister music and such a concept was made into an album by Dee Snider and other musicians, entitled Oculus Infernum Van Helsing’s Curse.

The British heavy metal band Black Sabbath have used the song as an intro for many shows and tours during their tenure with Tony Martin. The American heavy-metal band, Machine Head, previously used this as an introduction track to their live performances some of which have been recorded. The Norwegian black metal band Mayhem has also used the song as an intro to shows.
