This is not a book for the beginner to pick up and practice fortunately, the author mentions the necessary prerequisites. I remember when I first read it, I was a little confused. I have read a lot of "vampire grimiores" over the years, and this one was unlike them all in that the focus of the work is the magickal development of the individual sorcerer.

This is not a book for the beginner to pick up and practice fortunately, the author mentions the necessary prerequisites. I remember when I first read it, I was a little confused. I have read a lot of "vampire grimiores" over the years, and this one was unlike them all in that the focus of the work is the magickal development of the individual sorcerer. That was the first time I'd ever seen anything like that. Here was a practical grimiore that was actually of the vampire genre, the first of its kind that I have read. Now, I really did not think it was very vampiric in the popular way. In every other way, however, I came to discover that it was really the only real vampire workbook that I had ever encountered. Which is why I felt moved to read it again and to do a book review.

At my first reading of the Vampire Gate I had not yet ready any of Mr. Ford's books so I had no familiarity with his other work. Now that I reread this book after reading many of his other books it becomes obvious to me the rich tapestry that he has woven from all of his experience and research. It has Babylonian, Egyptian and Ahrimanic concepts and deities as well as Qlippothic workings. After having done the preliminary reading and worked with much of the material I see now clearly that this is an initiatory workbook that if you do your homework and work it you will excel and enrich your individual power exponentially.

Whether you are a beginner or well into your walk on the path, I think this is a must read. Not for the awesome vampiric title, but because there are few books that have such a convocation of dark gods from different pantheons all in one place and have accurately portrayed them in a practical way. Furthermore, there are exercises for many different levels of development, from Ahrimanic Yoga to Astral Projection. It is a workbook to liberate and empower the individual. This book is full of references as to how the concepts, deities and exercises relate to your individual development and how to make the most of them. That being said, this is a vampiric grimoire and for the immortalist. Not all Luciferians are into this, but even if you are not, it is as I said it makes a great source book for the dark gods and magickal techniques described herein. This was my first of his books and is my favorite.

About Author:

Michael W. Ford is the Magister of The Order of Phosphorus, a closed order of solitary initiates and The Black Order of the Dragon, the inner guild based around Yatukivah - Persian and Chaos sorcery. He is the author of "Luciferian Witchcraft" which contains 12 different grimoires including the Left Hand Path Tantric Grimoire, Adamu, a forbidden book of Sexual Magick, Goetic Sorcery, a Luciferian approach to the 72 Spirits of the Shemhamforasche, Yatuk Dinoih and other works focused on the darksome rites of the path of Shadow Sorcery and so-called Skir-hand Witchcraft, introduced by Nathaniel J. Harris, a Hereditary Witch from the UK. Known as Akhtya Seker Arimanius, Ford also is the author of Liber HVHI, an explaination of the Luciferian trinity and the rituals of the Qlippoth, The Book of the Witch Moon which features an introduction by Chaos Magician Peter J. Carroll and numerous articles and essays.

Recording with Black Funeral and Darkness Enshroud, a ritualistic-darkwave band, Ford relocated for the first time to Houston, Texas, having just recorded and released his first industrial record, Valefor - Death Magick on Cold Meat Industries "Death Factory Records" in 1996.

Michael Ford was granted the Order of Nine Angles command by Christos Beest in 1996, from which Ford operated until 1998 in Indianapolis. Ford left the active ONA due to what he has described as its Neo-Fascist stance and political ideals, which in his view are not an inherent part of Magick or Satanism:

"I was and still am very interested in the Northern Tradition and the runes... It was something I am not interested in, Nazism and my projects NEVER HAD anything to do with it... I was more of an anarchist in many ways than the labeled "anarchists", I said things which would disturb, that is the point... I am NOT by any means (and this is in practice too) any kind of racist or such. That is ignorance in a high form."

Michael spent several years developing his Magickal practice between 1998 and 2000, when moving to Houston, Texas in October 1999 and editing his Book of the Witch Moon, where he had previously corresponded with Kenneth Grant.Ford continued working on music and recorded several ritual-music albums in the late 1990s, under the band name Psychonaut. Michael's interest in the works of Austin Osman Spare, Kenneth Grant and the mythology of the Adversary throughout the history of humanity were his primary interest during that time .

In 2001 Ford met Dana Dark, a gothic model and vocalist from Houston, and two others to begin recording ritual workings and the practice of the specific "luciferian" magick.The band recorded several albums from that point on, performing several live rituals. The group practiced magick as a Coven during this time period.

In 2003 Ford began publishing chapbooks and distributing them at low cost throughout the Satanic and Left Hand Path underground, which was designed as a type of "hit and run" guerrilla tactic. Ford had written in numerous published interviews that his goal was to upset and redefine the often-stagnant occult genre with an "Adversarial" approach. 2004 brought Michael's first contribution to a soundtrack, during his collaboration with Hexentanz, a ritual-medieval music project, with The Soil Bleeds Black and Psychonaut 75).

Ford published Luciferian Witchcraft in 2005, which quickly reached LULU.com's top 100, where it remained through 2008. Soon after Ford published numerous other left hand path and satanic books, redefining and presenting a new approach to so-called Dark paths of Magick and religion.

Ford is also the founder of The Order of the Phosphorus and The Black Order of the Dragon and a co-founder of The Church of Adversarial Light, a Luciferian Church. Ford has been an initiate and developer of the Luciferian Path for over ten years and also takes a significant interest in ancient Zoroastrian mysteries and Yatukih Sorcery. Ford is the co-owner of Succubus Productions and The Luciferian Apotheca.

He has done soundtracks for the movies Cadaver Bay and Hell Bound Book of the Dead released in 2004. (from wikipedia.org)
