FRIDAY THE 13th's AMERICAN SATAN AND REVELATION 12's FALLEN ANGELS

It's been a long time since I've done a post that explores a current event and its connections with mythology, but since American Satan is opening in theaters tonight, and it is loaded with all sorts of mythological and Biblical references, I thought I would go there.

This movie, ostensibly, is about a young half-American, half-British rock band named 'The Relentless' that moves to LA to make it big in the music industry. They struggle until they meet an 'enigmatic stranger,' a Mr. Capricorn, who then makes their dream a reality.

If the trailer is any indication, then this movie is nothing more than an attempt to make Baal worship look cool.

Hey, if you are going to Hell, you might as well wear black and jack up the amps, right?

Somewhere where it's really hot, I suspect there is an ancient Jezebel who is wishing she had never heard of Baal.

The leader of 'The Relentless' is named Johnny Faust, and the actor is Andy Biersack. Biersack is actually the frontman for the Kiss-knock off heavy metal/Goth band Black Veil Brides.

Black Veil Brides has a song and video titled Fallen Angels, in which the members of the band fall to earth in a meteor storm and then emerge from craters as fallen angels. I first watched this video back in 2011, bookmarked it and let it be.

Until now.

The lyrics are unimaginative but BVB managed to make a 'song' out of them anyway. Perhaps, in the long run, it's the visuals and the background to the song that are more important - they say more than the lyrics do.

More on that in a little bit.

First, let's look at some of the names in this movie.

AMERICAN SATAN CHARACTER NAMES

Faust: Biersack plays Johnny Faust.

Wikipedia's entry on Faust claims that Johann Faust (Johann = John = Johnny thus Johnny Faust) lived from c. 1480 - 1540. He was a man who made a deal with the Devil to obtain worldly pleasures in exchange for his soul.

Hence the expression 'to make a Faustian bargain.'

In the movie trailer, it appears that Johnny Faust does just that.

Denise Richards, ex-wife of Charlie Sheen (who is his own kind of American Satan), plays Biersack's mother, Kat Faust.

Kat can be short for Katherine, a name that can mean 'pure.'

But Kat can also be based on an older Greek name, the name 'Hecate,' who was the goddess of witchcraft, crossroads, tombs, demons and the underworld.

Looking at the other names in this movie as a whole, I think Hecate is the better bet.

Elias: Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy, and a corrupt police officer in Batman Begins) plays the role simply known as Elias.

Elias is another name for the prophet Elijah.

Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18, during the time of Jezebel. And many believe Elijah will be one of the two witnesses that John describes in Revelation who stands up to the Antichrist.

Cassandra: Tori Black is a hardcore porn actress 'in real life.'

In Greek mythology Cassandra was cursed by Apollo because she refused to sleep with him. Ironic, because it is apparent from the list of movies for Tori Black, there is NO ONE she would refuse to sleep with.

Moving on.

Cassandra was cursed to tell true prophecies but, alas, no one would believe her.

Lily: The American Satan website indicates Lily is part of the band and has the last name 'Mayflower." The name 'Lily' can come from a flower, and perhaps the movie is trying to suggest that with her last name. But 'Lily' is also a variant of 'Lilith,' the name of an ancient night demon.

Interestingly, Lilith is a 'pretty witch' that appears to Johann Faust when he makes his bargain with the Devil. She appears in Goethe's 1808 Faust: The First Part of the Tragedy. She tells Faust that she's been around since the time of 'apples in the Garden.'

Great! Lily is Satan in drag.

(I know, I know, a lot of people out there think that Lilith was actually Adam's 'first' wife, and the Bible forgot to tell us about her. Whatever.)

Gabriel: He is a character that, according to the American Satan website, is an 'ominous messenger' who shows up from time to time to speak to Johnny Faust.

In the Bible, he wasn't ominous. Gabriel told the priest Zacharias that his long-barren wife Elizabeth would soon become pregnant with a son. That son would be John the Baptist and he would walk in the 'spirit and power of Elijah.' Six months later, Gabriel appeared to Mary and told her she would soon be pregnant with Jesus and that her cousin Elizabeth was six months pregnant with a son. And Gabriel helped the prophet Daniel to understand visions.

Damien: Drake Bell plays the role of Damien, a name well known as the name of the Antichrist.

It was the 1976 movie The Omen that gave us the name 'Damien' for the Antichrist. Gregory Peck plays an American ambassador to Britain who accepts a different child offered by the hospital's chaplain when his own son was born stillborn to his wife. Through a series of strange events, Peck comes to realize the boy is not what he seems, and though he never seems to quite accept that the boy is the Antichrist spoken of in the Bible, he does believe the boy is some spawn of Satan. Peck is killed by police while he is trying to kill Damien, and the movie closes with a scene from his funeral -- Damien is holding the hand of the President of the United States, and he turns and smiles at the camera as the ending scene implies he will now be in the White House.

That would make him an 'American Satan.'

'Damien' is the French spelling of an older Greek name 'Damon,' a name that means 'to tame.'

Wikipedia notes that while 'Damon' sounds like 'demon,' the two are not etymologically related.

(In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein debacle, Matt Damon would be relieved to know this.)

Damien is also the name of Father Karras, the Jesuit priest/psychologist who exorcises the demon Pazuzu out of Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair) in The Exorcist, then kills himself.

BTW, Biersack lists The Exorcist as one of his top favorite horror movies.

Mr. Capricorn: Malcolm McDowell gets to play the Horned Goat god.

Less you doubt the connection, there are several images of Baphomet, the both male and female, or transgendered, demon that has been worshiped since the most ancient of times, in the trailer.

But forget ancient, he's never gone away. Satanic groups are often trying to put up stone images of 'it' on various state capitol grounds, including Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Capricorn is one of the constellations. He is shown as a part goat, part fish creature. Greek mythologies claim Capricorn is actually Pan, who jumped into a river to escape during a battle with the ancient creature Typhon.

Pan is often shown as somewhat man-like, but with legs like a goat and hooves instead of feet and with a face that is both man and goat.

He has long been associated with music and forests and wild orgies and bestiality.

The chaos that can ensue from a Pan get together is where we get our words 'panic' and 'pandemonium.' It is said that he somehow 'scared' the Persian armies at the ancient Battle of Marathon, which is why they fled in 'panic.'

Greek mythology notes that Hermes was the father of Pan, others say Apollo was. However, some scholars are uncertain as to whether Hermes and Apollo were brothers or one and the same. One thing's for sure, where you see one, you often see the other.

It is never clear who Pan's mother was although many agree she was probably a 'wood nymph,' which is a quaint way of saying 'a young maiden in the woods.' Since we know from Genesis 6 that fallen angels 'took' women that they wanted, the 'wood nymph' was probably an unfortunate young woman unable to escape a horrible fate by being 'taken' while in the woods one day.

The worship of Pan is believed to have begun in Arkadia, a place of heavy woods. He was one of the few gods who did not have temples (only two are known to have been associated with him). Instead, he was worshipped in wood settings, or, more often, in caves.

Hence, some of our legends about fairies and caves.

Pan has long been associated with the Celtic Cernunnos. The Hindus associated Pan with their Pashupati. But don't let this fool you into thinking this is the name of a 'god' for it isn't really. It is a word that means 'lord of the animals,' and it is one of their epithets for Shiva.

Yes, the same Shiva that sits outside of CERN.



No, not that Shiva. This Shiva:



THIS Shiva is the Hindu form of Pan.

If you study the two long enough (and I don't mean for years), you see it.

Pan has long held a beloved place in the hearts of our children, courtesy of Disney, when Disney turned the story of Peter Pan into one of their animated movies. If you study Pan and Peter Pan long enough, you see it there, too. And I mean in the original book form, not Disney's retelling.

Oh, did I mention fairies? Anyone hear of Tinker Bell?

In case you need one more connection, the constellation of Capricorn (Pan) is associated with pirate ships. Yep, Captain Hook. Constellation of Words explains if you want to read more.

Pan worship continues today, most notably with Wiccans. He is their Horned God of the forest. New Ager Robert Crombie claims he has met Pan on several occasions.

Now Andy Biersack, as Johnny Faust, can claim the same thing.

To clear up any doubt, the trailer, unfortunately, gives a glimpse of a 'Pan party.'

ANDY BIERSACK AND REVELATION 12 SIGN

As noted earlier, Biersack is the front man for Black Veil Brides.

To be a 'black veil bride' is a Catholic thing where a women gives up her life to devote herself to God. The band members felt they were doing something similar by giving up their lives to devote themselves to music. Or something.

From wikipedia:

Fallen Angels" is the third single by the American rock band, Black Veil Brides, and the first single from their second album Set the World on Fire. The song is inspired by the biblical story told in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12, in which Satan and one-third of God's angels rebelled against God, starting a war in Heaven and were therefore cast out of Heaven to the earth, becoming "fallen angels." The story was introduced to Andy Biersack and the Black Veil Brides by their band artist Richard Villa.

Biersack speaking of Villa:

He's very much into biblical stories and he found the whole story of the fallen angels who were the ultimate outcasts. They weren't sent to hell, but they weren't allowed in heaven. They had nowhere to go. They weren't human, either, so they had this lonely existence. They wound up banding together and creating their own gang of sorts. We really liked that and wound up writing a song very much based on how we could equate that to our lives.

So now we know BVB is all about 'outcast' worship, starting with the fallen angels.

The video depicts the five members of Black Veil Brides falling from outer space and crashing to the earth on comets. Amidst the smoke, they emerge from craters as the fallen angels and begin performing their song. Other meteorites crash into earth, and other 'angels' appear in the ruins, and a crowd gathers around them and, well, now it is party time.

American Satan features a heavy metal singer who became famous singing about the Revelation 12 sign, the part where the dragon's tail sweeps a third of the angels to the ground in a comet shower. Now, that singer will debut in a movie on Friday the 13th, which happens to be the last day of the Revelation 12 sign, about a man who makes a Faustian deal with the god of this world, the Devil, Satan, to make it big in this world.

I am willing to bet that Biersack thought it would be 'cool' to have his movie released on Friday the 13th, and in October, no less! What 'cool' timing!

But did Biersack realize that his movie would be released on the last day of the Revelation 12 sign, on the day that Jupiter finally exits Virgo, and the dragon, Satan, is waiting to be cast to the earth?

You would think he would know this since he has a song about the event, but who knows. Did he look that far down the road when the release date of American Satan was being considered and said, 'Hey, Friday the 13th in October is great, but that date is even better because it's the last day of the Revelation sign, and hey man, we jammed about that in Fallen Angels'?

Your guess is as good as mine.

It may be rather late in this post to bring up this point, but hey, I've had a lot of ground to cover, and I actually took a big chunk out to keep this post from going into overtime, but the title 'American Satan' does not (ostensibly) refer to Andy Biersack.  Rather, in the trailer, the name actually refers to the title of the album The Relentless band members create.

Look at events on these past few Sabbaths:

Sept 22-23: Revelation 12 sign
Sept 24: Suddenly NFL players are kneeling, not in solidarity with Colin Kapaernick and his anti-cop statement, but in defiance to Donald Trump's statement that the players should be standing and respecting the American flag. Many note the difference in how Tim Tebow was treated when kneeling in prayer and Colin Kapaernick was treated in kneeling.

Sept 29-30: Yom Kippur
Oct 1: Massacre at Jason Aldean concert in Vegas.  Curiously, Aldean has his own 'Relentless' song and album of the same name.  The Las Vegas massacre has become the worst mass shooting in American history with 58 dead and nearly 500 injured.

Oct 6-7: Draconid meteor shower
Oct 8: There was no dramatic meteor storm with the Draconids, but wildfires broke out all across northern California, but especially around California's San Francisco Bay area. BP Earth Watch notes that fireballs were reported before the outbreak of fires, although no government officially has stated that fireballs caused these tremendous wildfires. These fires are among the worst in California history.

Oct 13: American Satan debuts, featuring the front man who became famous, at least among the heavy metal/Goth culture, for singing about Revelation 12 sign.

I am not saying American Satan is fulfillment of anything. What I am saying is interesting timing, no? -- that this movie debuts on the last day of the Revelation 12 sign of September 23, and the heavy metal singer who sang about it is in a movie that has the title American Satan.

That's what I am noting. (With a few of my own thoughts included along the way.)

Btw, did Lady Gaga meet her own 'Pan'?
