Rated 4/5 Stars
A powerful satanic rite to Azazel which opens up the very Gates of Hell


* A goat statue or printout of the scapegoat

* One large "dungeon" key

* Peacock feathers

* A small plate of food offerings to Azazel

* A log end, or chopping block, something suitable to lay the chain over and chop in half.

* Chalice - filled with your favorite beverage.

* A pure sheet of parchment - do the best you can. Before the ritual inscribe the names written below in advance. To sign your name, you can use a feather and a drop of blood, or just use a pen if you so desire.

* Cauldron, cast iron preferred. With a large tablet of altar charcoal burning in it Your favorite incense, I recommend copal and/or kyphi, for its dense fragrant smoke. I will also use flash powder for this ritual and my fog machine.

* Black robe or black clothing and Baphomet Sigil necklace (optional)

* One long length of chain - a softer metal alloy is recommended, not hardened steel links, and a sword or small axe heavy enough to cut it. It neednt be too heavy, unless you feel like doing some really vigorous chopping, but fairly long to allow for movement whilst it is chained to your leg.

Note: Dont use your "best" ritual sword to do the chopping. You will mess up and dull the edge. You could use a machete or small hand axe.


It is a rather lengthy ritual when performed set aside plenty of time. The chaining of your leg, to the altar, is a symbolism of Azazel, and his metaphor as "scapegoat" and his skill in metallurgy and weaponry as well as him being imprisoned and then his freedom, and also as a metaphor of Satanism freeing the mind and breaking the chains of herd mentality.

I have tried to relate each sequence or tableaux to the next.. I had found a reference to Azazel and Orion, but am unable to confirm its historical pedigree or provenance, the background stated that the ritual should be performed when Orion is overhead.

Do as thou wilt..

You will want the chain to be locked securely to your ankle and the leg of your altar, so I recommend a long length of it to allow for freedom of movement within the ritual chamber. Once the chain is locked, though, do not remove under any circumstance, except by cutting through it with a sword or axe, once the chain is severed you may then remove the loop of chain around your ankle. It is suggested that you begin the rite after the sun has set.

Setting up the Altar and preparing the Temple:

Prepare the altar on the west wall. Cushions on floor. Prepare black candles all around room. To begin, a warm salt bath or shower is to be taken before commencing. It helps to relax and prepare the mind and body.

Next, a Middle Pillar meditation or other banishing exercise. I would allow 20-30 minutes for this.

Ritual will begin with a brief tableaux of suitable music.

Some dark classical is recommended, whatever works aesthetically according to your own tastes. This is done to put you in the proper mood for the ritual. Light charcoal tablet, and allow time for it to be fully ablaze and ready to go. Cast and open the temple in your preferred format.

Here is the opening format you can use customarily:

Turn to the South.

"Hail and Welcome to you Satan, I summon you with the element of Fire."

Turn to the East.

"Hail and Welcome to you bright Lucifer, I summon you with the element of Air."

Turn to the North.

"Hail and Welcome to you Belial, he who is without a master, I summon you with the element of Earth."

Turn to the West.

"Hail and Welcome to you mighty Leviathan, I summon you from the watery abyss with the element of Water."

"Our friend and companion of the night; thou who rejoicest in the baying of dogs and spilt blood. Thou who wanderest in the midst of the shade of the tombs, thou who longest for blood and bringest terror to mortals."

"Gorgo! Mormo!

O thousand faced moon look favorably upon our sacrifices.


At this point you can drop either flash powder and a small touch of copal, in your cauldron which has an incense charcoal tab already burning. This creates a small flash of flame and an initial pillar of smoke. Ths done as a welcoming dedicatory offering to the 4 elemental demons.

The Satanic circle is now cast.

Once smoke is rolling from the cauldron, secure chain around foot and altar leg and then begin.

Note: Once you are chained in, you may not remove chain for any reason UNTIL it has been severed in half with the sword or axe.

Those 4 words are the ones which open the Gates of Hell

be sure to say them RIGHT!

"Zazas Zazas Nastanada Zazas!"

"Open wide the Gates of Hell!

Mighty One, Azaz-El, I evoke thee now, by name, sigil and deed, and by the ancient words known to and by thy true worshippers."

Take up the peacock feathers..and fan smoke rising from the cauldron.

"Hail to Shaitan, who riseth forth from the pit of the Abyss, whose forms are manifold, whose creations are without number.

Divine Ram, proud Lord hear me!

Let your essence manifest in this temple I have prepared. Lend me your divine wisdom that I may gain power and the treasures you possess in your hands."

"Behold the sign of the Proud One!"

Hold forth the peacock feather. (emotional energy/gnosis should be ramping here)

"Come forth! Melek Tawas!

Come forth! Azazil!

Come forth! Peacock God!

Come forth! Iblis!"

"Welcome and Hail, O Mighty Lord of Hell from the smoke of the pit of the Abyss, to this temple I now dedicate unto you. A vessel for your power, terror and glory!

I call upon the King that Magnifies Himself!

Zodacare od Zodameranu!"

Hear now the Covenant and Pillars of Azazel and the names of the Dark Lords of the Abyss!

(Read the names written on the parchment.)




















"I honor thy Covenant made on Mount Hermon,

I conjure forth the spirit of the Covenant of Azazel known as the Al Jilwah - The Black Book of Satan."

"Saith Azazel!


"I was, am now, and shall have no end. I exercise dominion over all creatures and over the affairs of all who are under the protection of my image. I am ever present to help all who trust in me and call upon me in time of need. I allow everyone to follow the dictates of his own nature, but he that opposes me will regret it sorely."

"No god has a right to interfere in my affairs, and I have made it an imperative rule that everyone shall refrain from worshiping all gods. I place my affairs in the hands of those whom I have tried and who are in accord with my desires."

"I appear in diverse manner to those who are faithful and under my command. All treasure and hidden things are known to me, and as I desire, I take them from one and bestow them on another. I reveal my wonders to those who seek them, and in due time my miracles to those who receive them from me."

"I have allowed the creation of four substances, four times, and four corners, because they are necessary things for creatures. It is my desire that all my followers shall unite in a bond of unity, lest those who are without prevail against them. Now, then, all ye who have followed my commandments and my teachings, reject all the teachings and sayings of such as are without. I have not taught these teachings, nor do they proceed from me."

"O ye that have believed in me, honor my symbol and my image, for they remind you of me."

"For indulgence sake, and every lustful, prideful purpose!

I now freely inscribe my name upon the covenant and pillar of Azazel!

I say - AYE!"

Sign the parchment.

Ring bell 9 times and light incense.

Relax on cushions for a while.

Brief meditation upon the image of the goat, and deep emotional visualization of Azazel as "scapegoat".

Give offerings to Azazel on the altar, and drink deeply of the chalice of ecstasy.

After a brief interval rise and light the altar candles say:

"Hear the trembling ancient words of those without who would make the Great Ram as a scapegoat"

(NB: I also drop flash powder to cause flame to come up out of the cauldron as well as a dense smoke)

"I saw a star from heaven fallen unto the earth."

(add incense here, I recommend a resin such as copal or kyphi which creates a dense smoke pillar, if needed let it burn until a good solid column of smoke is rising)

"And unto to him was given the key of the pit of the Abyss."

(Lift up key, and pass it over the smoke)

"And he opened the pit of the Abyss, and there went up a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power."

"Hear the wisdom of Azazel!"

"My understanding surrounds the truth of things,

And my truth is mixed up in me,

And the truth of my descent is set forth by itself,

And when it was known it was altogether in me.

And all that are in the universe are under me,

And all the habitable parts and deserts,

And everything created is under me,

And I am the ruling power preceding all that exists."

"Hail, Azazel, Lord of the Abyss, Ruler and King of the Earth, Ram of the Sun!

I ask that the powers of the Infernal Empire be bestowed upon me!"

"Come forth from the Pit of the Abyss and greet me as your brother/sister and friend. I give now the sigil and sign of Azazel. Inscribe the sigil upon the covenant parchment.

(The sigil I use personally, is the alchemical symbol for stibium/antimony as the Sigil of Azazel)

"Behold the words of those without, in praise of your skill and cunning as the Great Alchemist and Magus, who divulged unto man the secrets of the elements of earth and fire."

"Azazel taught men how to make swords, knives, shields, and breastplates; he made the metals of the earth and the art of working them known to mankind, he taught men how to make bracelets, ornaments, Azazel taught the use of antimony, the beautifying of the eyelids, the knowledge of all kinds of costly stones, and the knowledge of all of the coloring tinctures"

"With the sword forged with the fire of the Abyss and of the metals of earth, the knowledge of which you taught unto mankind, I sever now the chains that bind, bite, dull, restrain, and weaken."

"I shall no longer be as a scapegoat, but a lusty proud ram of the mountain, with sharp horns and shall rejoice in the indulgent, lustful pride of the flesh, and riseth forth as smoke out of the pit of the Abyss!"

Cut the chain that is bound to your foot with demonic glee.

Dont cut your leg though..but put the chain on a plank, log or suitable cutting/chopping surface, and forcefully chop it until it breaks..dont stop until it does, no matter how long it takes.

Hold forth the sword and broken chain and defiantly proclaim:


It is done!

I am free!

I am bound no longer.

Thy mighty name is now manifest within my flesh!

Thy power, pride and terror is now manifest within my will!"




Make the Sign of the Horns (the Corna) -

"You are the only one and the exalted;

You create and make rich those whom you will.

Praise it to yourself, for all things are by your will,

And the universe is lighted by some of your gifts.

You are the king that magnifies himself, And all the riches of creation are at your bidding."

"In nomine dei Nostri Azazel Excelsi!"

Close the circle at the conclusion, by thanking and releasing the demon elementals that you summoned in reverse order.

Although some people vary this or even omit it. I find it gives a good closing to the ritual proper. I will drop another dedicatory offering of copal or other resin in my cauldron, and then release the elementals.

"Hail to the mighty Demons that I summoned."

Hold forth your dagger or sword.

Turn to the West. Say:

"Thank you Leviathan, I now release you with Water."

Turn to the West. Say:

"Thank you Belial, I now release you with Earth."

Turn to the East. Say:

"Thank you Lucifer, I now release you with Air."

Turn to the South. Say:

"Thank you Satan, I now release you with Fire."

"Praise and thanks to Azazel, Melek Tawas - Lord of Hell, in His name I now close this circle of power."

"By my will and the power of Azazel, so mote it be!"

I will drop a large portion of flash powder in the cauldron at this point..for a final burst of flame.

Imagine the forces and your ritual now going out into the etherium.

Ring the bell 9 times as closing pollutionary.


1. Go outside if possible, and put both hands on the earth - not your floor; it has to be the actual earth; that is, good old dirt, not concrete either. Imagine the excess energy draining out of you and going deep into into the ground.

2. If that isnt possible or convenient, find some lodestones and hold them in your hands under running water.

3. You can also take a warm bath or shower. As you shower, imagine the excess energy being washed away and going down the drain. Let your muscles and mind relax and decompress.
