The Black Flame is a magazine published by the Church of Satan.[1] It was begun in 1989, when the other Church of Satan magazine, The Cloven Hoof, went on hiatus. Originally, The Black Flame was a quarterly newsletter, but it then evolved into a bi-annual publication.

In recent years, publication of The Black Flame seems to have been halted, with issue #16 (the "Music and Art Interview Issue") the most-recently published. An announcement has been made that further issues will be released as journals, with extensive essays and articles, as opposed to interviews. There is currently no set release date for issue #17, but rather a statement from the Church of Satan that "it will be released when we have enough material to justify publication."
