(Interview taken from Fall of Man's website)
Vexior has been burning the Veil with the Black Flame of knowledge for over twenty years. His first book, PanParadox, placed him among the most promising new authors in the occult scene, but for those who followed him from before he was already a challenging author, presenting us a different and personal view of Chaos-Gnosticism and the Old Norse religion through several essays, published in Clavicula Nox or his own website. With his second book, Gullveigarbók, he takes us further into the underworld; the home of the giants, and the acosmic Chaos, pointing us into the right direction, for those who dare to learn about the black runes and anti-cosmic magic.
Could you tell us how you started to dabble with the occult? What made you start walking the path of Chaos-Gnosticism?
I found the left hand path in my early teens, and as I grew up listening to Heavy Metal I think it is safe to say that the music influenced me to walk against the headwind and stand out of the crowd. Mythology and religion gave me an enlightenment I had never had before; something very special which made me spiritually dive off the cliffs into the obscurity of the underworld.
In the shadows I found Pan – or Pan found me at a young age – and I just knew that for the first time in my life I was on the right path. With Pan as my guide I experimented with all kinds of different magical praxes; he showed me Chaos and taught me how to connect with it, and he embraced my rebellious and lawless character and led me towards Gnostic ideas.
All this spawned an early nexus with Satanism, and it connected me with a great Anti-Cosmic Satanic Swedish Order which members I came in close friendship with; a brotherhood which introduced me to the foundation of Anti-Cosmic Satanism and Chaos-Gnosticism. I am currently studying religious science at a university, with the ultimate goal of researching Old Norse Religion.
Hi :) missed you guys! Too much to do, and am gonna have to start using the queue to cycle out all my saved up likes.
Also still not sure what to talk about on here anymore since I’m not discussing UPG anymore. Still trying to parse out where that part of my understanding of studies begin and end…
