The Misanthropic Luciferian Order is an occult order founded in 1995 and later renamed to Temple of the Black Light. The band Dissection were so involved in the group that the bassist Haakon Forwald pulled out, partly in order to concentrate on his esoteric studies.[1]

The MLO planned to release Liber Azerate, a grimoire written by the order's Magister Templi Frater Nemidial in 2002.[2] It was released on the internet in Swedish and Norwegian. Azerate is the hidden name of the "eleven Anti-cosmic gods", described in the book. A related musical work is the 2006 Dissection album Reinkaos, the lyrics of which were co-written by Frater Nemidial, and which album Jon Nödtveidt explained was "based on the book Liber Azerate and the teachings of MLO".[3] The MLO propagate "Chaos-Gnostic Satanism" or "Current 218".

The MLO consist of the unified belief in "Chaosophy". They believe that Chaos is the pandimensional plane and/or power with infinite amounts of space and time, in contrast to cosmos, which only has three spatial dimensions and one linear time dimension. They also believe that in comparison with the linear time of cosmos, that chaos can be described timeless in the way that it is not contained nor limited by one-dimensional time, and formless, because of its ever changing and infinite amounts of space dimensions.

Extreme militant nihilism is being taught within the group and they say the true Satanist is not to be a part of the modern society as it is founded upon lies.

These are the three dark veils before Satan, in their belief system seen as the three Forces that were expelled from Ain Sof in order to make way for the manifestation of The Black Light in The Outer Darkness that soon became Sitra Ahra:

  • 000 - Tohu - Chaos: Qemetiel 'Crown of Gods'
  • 00 - Bohu - Emptiness: Beliaal 'Without God'
  • 0 - Chasek - Darkness: Aathiel 'Uncertainty'

These three powers can be seen as the Burning Trident held high above the Thaumielitan. These three powers can also be viewed as Wrathful Reflections of Ain, Ain Soaf, and Ain Soaf Aur.

They believe there are eleven gods; those of Moloch, Beelzebuth, Lucifuge Rofocale, Astaroth, Asmodeus, Belfegor, Baal, Adramelech, Lilith, Naamah and Satan.
