Michael W. Ford Books

Michael W. Ford was born in 1976 to William and Judith Ford. His older brother, Mark, was a successful drummer who was on the road through most of Ford's early years. Ford began writing horror fiction as a child. In the late 1980s Ford attended The Cushman School in Miami, Florida, where he found an interest in music and history.In 1990 Ford started playing in death-metal bands in Indianapolis, having spent time there again before relocating to Homestead and the Miami area in 1991. Ford and his family lost all of their possessions in Hurricane Andrew in 1992, as a result of which Ford moved to Indianapolis and started Black Funeral with various session members. Ford's interest in Magick and specifically Satanism was into its early phase, echoed in Ford's lyrics at the time. Ford studied the history of occultism and magick for some time before joining various left hand path orders from 1993 to 1995.Recording with Black Funeral and Darkness Enshroud, a ritualistic-darkwave band, Ford relocated for the first time to Houston, Texas, having just recorded and released his first industrial record, Valefor - Death Magick on Cold Meat Industries "Death Factory Records" in 1996.Michael Ford was granted the Order of Nine Angles command by Christos Beest in 1996, from which Ford operated until 1998 in Indianapolis. Ford left the active ONA due to what he has described as its Neo-Fascist stance and political ideals, which in his view are not an inherent part of Magick or Satanism.Michael spent several years developing his Magickal practice between 1998 and 2000, when moving to Houston, Texas in October 1999 and editing his Book of the Witch Moon, where he had previously corresponded with Kenneth Grant. Ford continued working on music and recorded several ritual-music albums in the late 1990s, under the band name Psychonaut. Michael's interest in the works of Austin Osman Spare, Kenneth Grant and the mythology of the Adversary throughout the history of humanity were his primary interest during that time.In 2001 Ford met Dana Dark, a gothic model and vocalist from Houston, and two others to begin recording ritual workings and the practice of the specific "luciferian" magick. The band recorded several albums from that point on, performing several live rituals. The group practiced magick as a Coven during this time period.In 2003 Ford began publishing chapbooks and distributing them at low cost throughout the Satanic and Left Hand Path underground, which was designed as a type of "hit and run" guerrilla tactic. Ford had written in numerous published interviews that his goal was to upset and redefine the often-stagnant occult genre with an "Adversarial" approach. 2004 brought Michael's first contribution to a soundtrack, during his collaboration with Hexentanz, a ritual-medieval music project, with The Soil Bleeds Black and Psychonaut 75.Ford published Luciferian Witchcraft in 2005, which quickly reached's top 100, where it remained through 2008. Soon after Ford published numerous other left hand path and satanic books, redefining and presenting a new approach to so-called Dark paths of Magick and religion.Ford is also the founder of The Order of the Phosphorus and The Black Order of the Dragon and a co-founder of The Church of Adversarial Light, a Luciferian Church. Ford has been an initiate and developer of the Luciferian Path for over ten years and also takes a significant interest in ancient Zoroastrian mysteries and Yatukih Sorcery. Ford is the co-owner of Succubus Productions and The Luciferian Apotheca.He has done soundtracks for the movies Cadaver Bay and Hell Bound Book of the Dead released in 2004.
