Most outstanding! Thank you for these links and for introducing me to these artists 🖤

Concerning Mistress Ἑκάτη, you mayhaps already know this ditty and also its separate lyrics video?
On a more personal note (to which you may deign to answer me or not) do you consider these chthonic goddesses to represent to you aspects/archetypes of the Absolute or perhaps sub-types of Satan? Hmm...is there a real difference?

OFF TOPIC! But:
I was timed out editing my above posting...so:
For me currently one fine aspect of encountering "Otherness" is the vampire archetype as evidenced in popular culture. I've found the very idea of LARPing a vampire IRL as really silly, irrational, shameful and "lame". Therefore & all the more I've dived into it fully in my current LHP magical practice. Oh vat sveet enerkies it releeses. Shadow-integration work? I dearly hope so. I shall leave you with a suitably cheesy (yet groovy!) song. But it could be worse; I could have linked a Cradle Of Filth tune instead. 😘

I would also opine that this Nile song deals with the wisdom/viewpoint of "Seker" - a Greek bastardisation of the god/archetype cognate with Kronos/Saturnus/Hel/Kali i.e. the process of mortification, as evident from the allegorical lyrics (from the Old Kingdom coffin/pyramid texts?).

A less eloquent approach to the same, or perhaps better put: against the suffering inherent in our world, this time originating from Mesopotamia.

Why not throw in some Hindu/Theosophical/SoA/LHP Tantric musickal art as well...

I haven't listened Sleep of Monsters, but I have listened lot of Sopor Aeternus.

In my work, deities express themselves as personalities or archetypes. So I consider deities as aspects of Absolute. I think that it is easier for the human mind to approach things more personally than completely abstract.

My approach is the same.
Hmm, if we take Satan as the Absolute's highest archetype, it would then follow that all other deities etc. are in fact sub-types of Satan. Or perhaps this thinking is too Kabbalistic - with just a single "chain of emanation" from the Ainsophic veils of nothingness via Kether all the way down to Malkuth (and on/parallel to the Tree of Death).
Maybe there are in effect multiple isolated chains. Sorry, I digress from the topic here 🤔

Regarding the Sacred Female or Magna Mater, I think this music video imparts much lore thereof...through the lense of Proto-Germanic and/or -Scandinavian lyrics & imagery. In addition to the lyrics, to perhaps needlessly address some of the more obvious visuals: hornedness combined or contrasted with a girl/woman; drinking of dew = Daughter/Son of Dawn; "trolldrum" having the emblem of the Black Sun (our universal/cosmic Master kindling our individual Black Flames); woman facing off the bison = the esoteric meaning of e.g. the tarot's Strength card. And the song itself seems quite nice as well. 😉

And strictly Luciferian in Finnish; Elementa by CMX.

Ditto with poetic pathos or bathos, in their idiom...which ended rather tragically.
