Kult of Azazel – Dawn Of Luciferian Enlightenment: A Video Breakdown


Blinded by the enlightenment. Revved up like a douche, another runner in the night. Blinded by the enlightenment.

Kult of Azazel are a satanic black metal band based out of Florida. They’ve been around since 2000 and have released five full-length albums and a large number of splits, EPs, demos and live albums. I bring all this up not just to educate you, dear readers, but to refresh my memory as well because I completely forgot about this band until recently. In the days of metal message boards, I remember the name Kult of Azazel getting thrown around for a while. Those mentions eventually faded, along with metal message boards in general. The band had not crossed my mind in years, not even as a joke. It probably doesn’t help that there is a death metal band named Dawn of Azazel from New Zealand that formed around the same time. You say Kult, I say Dawn. Let’s call the whole thing off.

Just recently, though, their name appeared as a replacement band on the Anticosmic Music Festival set to take place in Providence, Rhode Island. It looks like 2016 is a banner year, for KoA are working on a new album and have just released a shiny, new music video for our enjoyment.

0:05: Who wants S’mores?
0:09: Kult of Azazel uses dark chocolate on their S’mores for maximum evilness.
0:13: But they use gluten free graham crackers just in case someone is gluten intolerant.
0:18: And vegan marshmallows. You can’t receive Luciferian enlightenment with an upset tummy.
0:26: I kind of just want to refer to them as Kult of Azazzy from now on.
0:30: Because they clearly need more zazz.
0:35: These filters over their live videos could use some razzmatazz as well.
0:42: And a splash of “zippity do-daa.”
0:48: Sweet Satan on a slide whistle!
0:56: Mondays, amirite?
1:00: When in doubt, just zoom in and out on a still picture in your music video.
1:09: This new Ghostbusters movie is going in some strange directions.
1:20: They might as well throw in some whipped cream with all these layers.
1:26: Luciferian enlightenment requires you to get cataract surgery.
1:37: It’s like a Magic Eye but with way more goats.
1:42: Same amount of headaches, though.
1:50: Satanic Triple Kiss. Awwww yeaaaah.
1:54: Only two inverted crosses? I guess someone is agnostic…
2:07: I don’t know if this video makes me want to hail Satan, but it definitely makes me want to take some time learning Corel VideoStudio.
2:18: This live footage should have been included in our Lack Of Crowd Interaction discussion.
2:33: “We were invoking the Goat-Legged One when the drugs started to take hold.”
2:37: Worth pointing out that the spooky goat-invoker is wearing a snazzy yellow tie.
2:50: Would you believe that this is Kult of Azazel’s love ballad?
2:57: So that’s what half-risen dough looks like.
3:06: Beezlebro is all about the strobe lights.
3:20: Not too many crowd shots from these live footage clips. Just saying.
3:26: Maybe they couldn’t invoke more ticket sales from their friends and parents.
3:33: “Moooom, we can’t please the Dark Lord if we sell less than 20 tickets to the local band matinee showcase!”
3:44: Wait a minute. Did they just flip the footage from the beginning?
3:51: I suppose Lucifer would cut corners.
3:58: “And that was how I spent my summer with Kult of Azazel.”
4:09: “What the fuck is up, bitcheeessssssss?!?” – Lucifer

Kult of Azazel’s album Violators of the Covenant is still in the process of being recorded, so it will be released at some point in the future. Probably.

    This video is a funny thing to watch at 11 pm.

  • Satanic Triple Kisses for everyone! 😀

      So does that mean on the back of the head while hanging upside down?

      Because, if so, I’ll need a few minutes to set up the overhead bars.

  • Howard Dean

    FYI: The dude from the movie Powder was in this band. Check out this band pic. I think he heard some thunder in the distance right when the photo was snapped:

    whoah titties!

    Now I just want to eat s’mores. Is that the Luciferian Enlightenment? Did the band do a subliminal messaging on me?

    Also, perhaps I’ll start a Blackened Death Metal band called Dawn of the Kult of Azazel.

    I already have our early discography planned out:
    – Night of the Kult of Azazel
    – Dawn of the Kult of Azazel (s/t)
    – Day of the Kult of Azazel

    Then after a sharp turn into Weird or Avant-Garde Death…

    – Don d’Azazel (NB: French pun)
    – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azazel
    – Everything’s Coming Up Azazel

    • Dubbbz

      The Azazel was fat.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        But it comes with a free frogurt.

    • Bro! You forgot:

      – Afternoon of the Kult of Azazel (EP)

      • JWEG

        Clearly Romero missed an obvious one.

        I Still Know What You Did Last Afternoon Of The Kult Of Azazel

        After all that Kultin’ it’s time for a Siesta of the Kult of Azazel (all ambient, limited 5 1/2” floppy disk)

    Don’t care about video but the music is nice.

    song could be worse

    You know what’s more hilarious than this video? This story:

    My dad saw Meat Loaf perform at a tennis tournament/music festival once. He tried jumping over the tennis net and face planted hard on the ground. He said it was hilarious.

    • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

      You know what’s even more hilarious than watching this? The RNC right now. It’s turning out to be even more of a circus than expected, and Trump looks like he’s getting dumped on day 1 now that the delegates are turning against him in the middle of it. Care for some popcorn?

      • more beer

        They do this kind of shit at every convention. By the last day they will all be hugging each other supporting Trump and doing a bad dance to some really bad music.

        • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

          Probably, but haven’t ever heard of them doing this at any convention. Either way, Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato, Jr. speaking is lolbuttz. It’s a pretty interesting and hilarious train wreck to watch.

          • more beer

            It doesn’t matter. No matter who is elected the country is fucked.

          • CyberneticOrganism


          • more beer

            I told one yesterday.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            I”ve gotten the word out via my second FB page (the one I use for Blabbermouth). Hoping I can finally coax the Cookie Monster on there (David Gilbert) to swing on by.
