The Satanic Mass: Recorded Live at the Church of Satan is the first released audio recording of a Satanic ritual by high priest Anton Szandor LaVey, recorded in 1967 at Church of Satan headquarters, known as The Black House.[1] The album was originally released as a vinyl LP on LaVey's own label, Murgenstrumm, in 1968. It was re-released June 21, 1995 on Amarillo Records.

Side one of the album features an audio recording of the baptism of LaVey's daughter, Zeena. Side two features excerpts from the then-unpublished book, The Satanic Bible, recited by LaVey over the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Wagner and John Philip Sousa.[2]
