"Under each face two mighty wings stretched out, / of size proportioned to so huge a bird; / sails of the sea I never saw so large. / They had no feathers, but were like a bat's / in fashion; these he flapped in such a way, / that three winds issued forth from him; thereby / Cocytus was completely frozen up”. – Dante Aligheri Divina Commedia
Arte Arcana Lucifero

Lucifer mythical character is by far metal most mentioned and revered of all villain. Heaven's outcast and dirty scoundrel, the mighty ruler of all that is below and a materialist bastard par excellence. Artist Devil fascination and representation is overwhelming and is depicted ad nauseam making Eliphas Levi goat more popular than any other deity. Like with Virgil guiding Dante into the pits of hell 'Arte Arcana - Lucifero' will help and guide to understand Lucifer or Satan the Devil character.

Classic Sacred text with metal masterworks

We are inviting artists to share their vision of devils and demons and of course Lucifer before and after the fall. The volume include passages, extracts and poetries of work of literature of the West most distinguished authors, including John Milton, William Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri, William Blake, Edgar Allan Poe, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Thomas Aquinas, Giordano Bruno, etc. as well as the Bible, ancient and sacred text, all providing a monologue on 'Lucifero'. There is no postmodern reinterpretation, 'Arte Arcana Lucifero' is genuine to the sacred religious traditions.

"How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.' But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: 'Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?' – Isaiah 14:12
