From the Desk of the Editor:
Martinet Press has been instrumental in providing an accessible and uncensored platform for an international cross section of underground cultists whose work affects change not only within themselves but outwardly into temporal and spiritual planes. It is my sincere intention as acting editor of Choronzon journal to assemble a collective grimoire expressed through written word, ritual, poetry, symbolism and art. It is my sacred duty in this lifetime to serve as an artistic vessel for demonic forces of the Abyss as well as to encourage the spread of frenzied Satanic devotion.
We must weaponize our spirituality and the destabilizing manifestations thereof. I anticipate this journal will be utilized by those who perceive the dark gods through an amalgamation of many strange and bloody visions. Join me in manifesting those visions into something truly terrible; a gateway for energies hostile to this world. Our adherence to the pitch black path is highly individualistic and yet, our name is legion. Redeunt Saturnia Regna.

March 23rd, 2017 Era Horrificus
The Abyss is one of the few constants in mythologies of the world’s cultures: a grinding, seething mass of alien darkness. Neither dead nor alive, It predates the separation of existence from nihility. Many schools of magic have considered its role cosmos as a malignant force, which must be transcended in order to achieve mastery. They are, of course, entirely wrong. The Abyss is an insidious and aggressive continuum which seeks the utter dissolution and re-integration of all cosmic life and matter.
THE DEPLORABLE WORD is a profane grimoire that focuses on exclusively on the Abyss, combining art, reflection, theory, and magickal practices. This is the first of several volumes to be released by the Ministry of the Abyss, an artistic and esoteric collective dedicated to the spread and supremacy of spiritual darkness. THE DEPLORABLE WORD includes original color works by artist Erica Frevel, intended to be cut out and used as devotional iconography or altar pieces.
THE DEPLORABLE WORD is itself intended to be used as a talismanic volume, connecting the Satanist to the emanations of the Abyss itself. This grimoire is not intended to empower the user – rather, it is intended to unleash something insidious and hateful that will inhabit the user and evolve them into something other than human.
Forthcoming in August 2016: THE DEPLORABLE WORD by Erica Frevel & Constantine Charagma. THE DEPLORABLE WORD is a profane grimoire that focuses on exclusively on the Abyss, combining art, reflection, theory, and magickal practices. This is the first of several volumes to be released by the Ministry of the Abyss, an artistic and esoteric collective dedicated to the spread and supremacy of spiritual darkness.
