The Satanic Mass: Recorded Live at the Church of Satan is the first released audio recording of a Satanic ritual, recorded in 1968 at Church of Satan headquarters, known as The Black House.[1]

The Satanic Mass includes Anton LaVey performing the first publicly recorded Satanic baptism in history for his youngest daughter Zeena, which garnered world-wide publicity. The album was originally released as a vinyl LP on LaVey's own label, Murgenstrumm, in 1968.[2][3][4][5]
