" nowadays it's infrequent to listen to somebody country that they've offered their soul to the satan. Mark Manning, higher referred to as the rock musician Zodiac Mindwarp, is the writer of a couple of books together with Get Your Cock Out(2000) and Fucked through Rock(2001). For somebody acquainted with his paintings, the concept he has offered his soul to the satan turns out believable. but the concept that Drummond has performed an identical is more durable to simply accept.

Mephistopheles, in the meantime, represents the actual global. he's topic, solidification, barriers and barriers. they're either thought of to be precious, for with out Lucifer there's no movement, and with out Mephistopheles there is not any shape. but they're either thought of to be harmful, and unfavourable.
