The path of shadow alchemy is not an easy one to follow. However, due to the courageousness of some upright individuals who are sincere in their night undertakings, we do have a deeper knowledge of this world and some of the rites that go along with it! V.K. Jehannum’s story turns out to be an open book when it comes to his admiration for Satanic thought and the faith that he follows. I got a chance to speak to my brother from the Black Lodge and found a compelling biography. Enjoy!Warlock Asylum: It is certainly an honor to able to hear some of your insights about alchemy and occult science. However, for many of our readers who may not be familiar with your person, please introduce yourself. Who is V.K. Jehannum?
V.K. Jehannum: Well, I’m an Occult writer, magickal YouTuber, and witch-for-hire. I’ve been practicing black magick for nine years. I dedicated my life to it when I was sixteen years old.
The core of my tradition has always been demon magick and devotion to the Infernal Divine, but as I have progressed, I have decided to immerse myself into the Death Current, the Mysteries of Saturn and the magick of various cultural polytheisms.
Warlock Asylum: What was childhood life like for you?
V.K. Jehannum: This will get a little dark, but only in a way that may inspire others to pursue the Occult. I was fortunate to have been raised by two upper-middle-class parents with a stable marriage, but that’s about where my luck ended. I was sexually abused as a child by two people. And due to my violent tendencies, I was prescribed antidepressants at the age of five. Suicidal ideation and planning came before puberty. The only thing that prevented my constant fighting from getting me expelled from the schools I went to was because I was diagnosed with high-functioning autism.
When I initially became an occultist at sixteen, I did so with the intention of amassing as much spiritual power as I could, ending my life, and reincarnating without my disabilities, and with enhanced spiritual capacities to boot. My intention was to accomplish the Great Work in my next incarnation– at that age, I saw my present incarnation as completely devoid of merit, talent, and worth. However, the sense of purpose that demon magick gave me and the potential for self-transformation it demonstrated, showed me that I was not the lost cause that I had seen myself as.
Warlock Asylum: What inspired your interest in the occult?
V.K. Jehannum: The second I met some witches, I wanted to become a magickian more than anything. It called to me so strongly and I couldn’t give anyone a clear explanation of why. I just knew it was for me. So, I scoured the Bible in search of anything I could call bullshit on. Once I found what I was looking for I left Christianity behind and never looked back. Later, I would learn that I was a born witch and that Satan and the Tall Whites had had big plans for me all along.
Warlock Asylum: How did you discover the occult world’s primal side?
V.K. Jehannum: Well, I was a Wiccan for two weeks before I Googled Satanism. At that age, I had this weird quasi-survivalist mentality that made me want to research serial killers and people devoted to evil (as I assumed Satanists would be) in case I ever found myself in conflict with one.
When I found my first Satanic website, I liked what I saw. I adopted more and more Satanic practices until I eventually decided to full-on devote myself to Satanism (this decision did not take me very long to make).
Warlock Asylum: What is your definition of the Black Lodge and how has it changed your life?
V.K. Jehannum: I use the phrase “the Black Lodge” to refer to the entirety of the black-magick-practicing population of the human race, hybrids with non-human DNA included.
Warlock Asylum: Many of our readers saw your videos about the Simon Necronomicon and were really impressed with your honest approach. How did you come into contact with the Simon tome and what were some of the things that you discovered from working with it?
V.K. Jehannum: At first, I wrongfully assumed the grimoire to be a hoax, as it seems that most do. However, when I was researching the Qliphoth, I found your website, and read an article that convinced me that the text had some power and merit. Later on, I would date a girl who considered herself devoted to the text, and would later feel it call me, in the same way, that a deity can call to a witch he or she wants to work with.
Most of what I’ve learned by working with the Necronomicon is the gnosis of specific deities it describes. I forged my pathway through the operations of the grimoire, guided by those same deities, and in doing so, learned never to take instructions at face value (THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT ONE SHOULD NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED IN ANY GIVEN GRIMOIRE).
I have found, obviously, that the spirits of the Urilia text are vilified wrongfully and inaccurately. Humwawa marked me as a “black wizard,” and I received the sacred name “Zaedralgal Nal Izdar” (meaning: Black Wizard of the Nightside and the Abyss).
In my watcher-spirit, Dandulez, I have found an eternal ally and guide. Among the fifty spirits of Marduk, I have found extremely potent methods for the destruction of my enemies. In Azagthoth, I have found great wisdom, pure guidance, and incredible alchemy.
Warlock Asylum: Do you subscribe to any particular path or consider yourself a chaote?
V.K. Jehannum: You may refer to me by any title befitting a black magickian devoted to the Infernal Divine– Luciferian, Satanist, Demonolater, Devil Worshiper, Pagan, Occultist, etc. Titles don’t mean very much to me, but I do not think chaote would be an applicable moniker. In the meantime, my guides have taught me that there is a True Way that lies beyond all religions, and I intend to find it, or at least come close. Doing so requires a magickian to go a lot farther than Kether and Thaumiel.
Warlock Asylum: What inspired you to make the decision to share your wisdom publicly through YouTube and the website?
V.K. Jehannum: Well, I intended to become an occult writer since the day that alchemy showed me my potential and worth. Black magick completely redeemed me, and I wanted to give back to the community that I learned about it from. One of my main goals is to provide detailed treatises on well-known, obscure, and hitherto unrecorded spirits alike to show that there is more to them than whatever grimoires they’re recorded in can tell you– that is, if they’ve been recorded at all. I want to transform the Black Lodge’s understanding of the Infernal Divine in particular, but I cover many non-demonic divinities and spirits as well.
Warlock Asylum: What can we expect to see from V.K. Jehannum in the next five years?
V.K. Jehannum: I will completely redefine magickal demonology and Qliphothic Qabalah, as well as teach a series of obscure and new magickal paradigms and alchemical praxes to the Black Lodge. I’ve got a lot of projects in the works. Props for going with nine questions, by the way. Hail Satan.
On behalf of Warlock Asylum International News, I would like to wish you all the best on your magickal journey and in life. Readers can stay abreast with V.K. Jehannum at the following links:
