H R Giger has died… Aged 74.
By all accounts Giger was Possessed.
He gloried in Satanism and perversion.
His creations preyed on Humanity like Spiders eating flies.
He turned his God’given talents to Infernal ends.
Though he is Dead, his works will Go on Freaking the S#%t out of Generations to come, and inspiring other Devil worshippers, Nihilists, and Teens.
I dont know if it’s true or not yet I remember hearing a story once, that Giger sent some his works by plane for an exhibition to somewhere, yet they were stopped at the boarder by Customs officers concerned that they were photographs of Hell.
When I say ‘by all accounts’…. I simply mean that these are the impressions his art has left upon me… yet I cant deny that his works have always fascinated me from the first moment I saw them… I think it was in Playboy.
There is pleasure in sin.
His artwork appeals to all things Ungodly and Carnal which inhabits Human nature.
He capitalised upon our fear of the unknown.
Yet in the Final Judgement will he be Deemed to have been a ‘trend setter’ or the Ultimate follower and slave?
By this I mean that when I hear some Rap songs, or watch Family guy, or See my fellow Bloggers Death Metal Tube vids…. setting aside their obvious artistic talents… I get the intuitive insight that these artists are a sort of ‘Knee jerk reaction’ to an overbearing ‘Christian society’… and as being an actual selling of ones soul to everything which is Base in Human Nature… ie that far from being Leaders … with the masses following in their wake, these Modern Art forms are the ultimate surrender to the pop Trend existent in Humanity since Adam ate the Forbidden fruit….the desire to escape morality and plunge head long into the abyss.
They are the ultimate conformists.
I think they consistently demonstrate the Ultimate destination for a society in decline…. a society which has Utterly rejected Christian Cosmology… and represents a Climax…. a result far worse than Nihilism (which may be said to be represented by Abstract Impressionism)….
The ultimate end of this Decent is one step further… intentional Hell and depravity.
Pro-actively Malignant Soul rather than a more Neutral Nihilism and disorder are the ultimate embodiments of Atheism… the Ultimate Anti-Christianity.
Just how Unholy and Low can Humanity stoop?
So to my way of thinking these Artists represent a Free fall… not an Heroic assent.
Satanism is Trendy Cool these days.
I don’t expect my comments will be very popular with Giger’s Fans… the legions whom enjoy his depravity.
It feels kinda weird to be writing such a moralizing criticism, considering I enjoy his Art myself.
I am doing my best to try and understand how he fits into the grand scheme of things, and why his Bizarre Subject Matter has such appeal to Carnal souls.
Gigers Art… Like Seth MacFarlane’s Cartoons, Feed upon every vile lust and Mockery of Holiness, which dwell within us.
Their popularity is a testament to the extent of our social moral decay.
It bothers me that I enjoy them… It evidences my own spiritual condition.
I dont accept the excuses that entertaining ‘Art’, Acting, or Humour makes the Perverse and depraved acceptable.
Why do human beings find Circus Gladiators, or Feeding Christians to the Lions, Or Gore Movies ‘entertaining’???
Surely this Psyche is a testament to the truth of the Bible which say Humanity is a Fallen race of beings.
The biggest shock that guys like Giger, and Maynard James Keenan will get when they stand before God is how deceived they were about every thing they did.
They thought they were the embodiment of Freedom and innovation, when ultimately their works are a testament to their absolute slavery to sin.
May God have mercy upon his Soul… and mine.
Poster child for Atheism…Hannibal Lecter.

You know who’s making you suffer while you think about how you like Giger’s artwork right now? … You. Dude… There is no God and you know it. Stop wasting your life believing in an invisible spirit that supposedly sprang from ancient texts filled with Yahweh approved rape and murder. Giger liked dark shit because he liked it. Demons didn’t possess him. I think his artwork is scary because we are naturally afraid of black oily representations, as they seem related to death and disease, so think about that the next time you’re beating yourself up over liking Giger’s stuff… You only have a limited amount of time on this planet, and when you die, you cease to exist. No heaven. No hell. So don’t bother trying to assume what “God” wants, this same “God” who allows people to starve to death and suffer every year without doing a fucking thing about it. Oh, but he loves us…
You have all the answers don’t you? Oh wait they are called opinions. Great article by the way, on the money. Don’t listen to deceived people like this.
God is real, repent for your sins before its too late. You have been forewarned
This is old. But for any others who come across it to read who are atheist. Better hope you are right, you’re betting your immortal soul on it. Anyone who has had a paranormal experience can tell you that spirits are real, and possibly older than time itself by Aeons. Giger’s stuff screams demonic influence dating back to Mesopotamia, the goddesses, the demons Pazuzu and others that influenced all of mankind.
If you are right about God, and the Hebrews, Christians, and Islam is wrong in their thinking. They have nothing to lose by following the tenants as according to you nothing lies after death. IF you are wrong, you stand to lose everything, including your soul…
God gave us the brains to think things out and to feed ourselves. As far as starving people to death, you are assuming that the worst thing in the world is death. No the worst thing is to have lived and not known God. If you truly seek Him you will find Him, but most people like you smoggy do not want to find Him, because that would mean having to change your way of living and you are not down with that.
H.R Giger. Was not Satanic he drew his inspirations from litature. He was not religious, his art was not satanic, you should re search his work and inspirations before accusing and slandering his name.
Very unlikely Giger was a Satanist. He speaks in some YouTube videos of drawing things he’s afraid of, and shudders at the mention of worms. He suffered “night terrors” as a child, studied Freud (and probably Jung), believed in birth trauma, and was a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft, whose demonic entities were largely fictional elder gods indifferent to humanity (supposedly, this was an original concept for the alien “Space Jockey” in ALIEN, that was retconned into the not very cool human Engineers of PROMETHEUS). I like Giger’s plea for fans (as in evil ones) not to torture or kill cats, on one of his sites (look it up). He loved his cats. He wore black because he didn’t like to be seen in public splattered in paint. In the mid-’90s he got sick from paint fumes… Videos of him working suggest a guy committed to a vision that sold without forcing the artist to “sell out.” Giger did indeed say he was ready to rest and didn’t believe in life after death, so it’s hard to picture him all excited about the burning agonies his life’s work had prepared him for.
If you overlook his slingshot painting and the Baphomet/pentagram stuff, his work is fairly innocuous, suggestive of a biomechanical future with hints of our natural beliefs in good and evil, our grounding in heartless machine-like nature, Freudian symbolism, and humor–yes, humor. Giger once commented that people failed to see the humor in his work. I well remember my Mom once saying, “This guy doesn’t take this stuff seriously.”
You are doing nothing wrong in finding interest in an artist’s deep vision. He isn’t selling evil to you. Harlan Ellison said it best, and I paraphrase, “The work of someone like Giger makes you think.”
You aren’t perverse for liking his material. You’re drawn to it because, like the rest of us, you’re baffled and fascinated by its fictional, symbol-laden glimpse of some shiny future “beyond good and evil.”
Actually all of his artwork reeks pf dreams of the ancient reliefs of the goddesses of the sex cults from Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Babylon and their ritualistic sacrifcing of children to the gods/goddess such as Molech, Baal = Kronos.
This is why they became known as demons. Even the alien looks like Pazuzu without the wings and add a tail.
The snakes, the crawling decay of maggots and it screams of death. Shadowed by the inverse to the holy, one upright white pentagram showing holiness, and one inverted black one showing the occult. The pentagram used to be an early symbol for Christians representing the 5 marks of Christ or the stigmata.
Demons often have an affront to the holy. An aversion that makes sense when you’re cursed, or unclean.
9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”
He glorified Ahriman intentional or not. It does not matter the seriousness in his mind, he is merely the vehicle for another mind with another agenda. Gigers paintings are not a future, but a present. A present in the cold, dark, vapid realm of Ahriman, which is seeping through into this reality by design. Human ideas are not our own, they arise independently from the subconscious aethyr and can be input from higher immaterial egos, or egos existing in between dimensions.
12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?
5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
The current Pope is not a Catholic.
I understand how torn you are. Giger’s work is AMAZING!!! Even if his vision is so very dark. You say you wonder if his work comes from the devil. But I wonder… is Satan talented? Or does that gift only come from God? The creator is the ultimate creative. Is Satan even capable of great artwork? Or only a scrawling madness? I could do without the penis parts 😉 but i love Giger’s dark imagery. The hellish futurism. PS. I like your writing — I chuckled out loud in a couple places 🙂 PPS. see DARK STAR documentary on netflix. Giger definitely didn’t believe in life after death. So he was an atheist I guess. But not a satanist.
Just imagine his surprise when he meets God and then realizes the Satanic influences that were at work in his life yet he was completely oblivious to it!
This is a common thing…. Satan laughing spreads his wings.
who says he will even get a chance to meet God? 😀 Do not pass go, do not collect 200$.
When you paint from nightmares, who is the incubus filling your dreams with ideas of art and fornication and the inverse of the Holy by giving glory to the fertility goddesses, and death…ask HR Giger. Except he is dead, where do atheists go when they die? Good question. Maybe they just vanish into the absolute abyss of darkness for eternity.
6 One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. 7 The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”
8 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”
9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.
11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
12 The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.
How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.
9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
12 But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”
Nice bro,like it..I didnt know about this Guy…But you have the same opnion about family Guy…Is easier say God doesnt existe them say God is my life…I Love God and i liked your post

All technology is entropic, it is a sign of splintering and decay. Servants of Ahriman will always think themselves progressive, keen, and liberated. They think they can find Eternal Being in machines. Gigers art is very Ahrimanic cold, steel, machine like. This art is a clue to how Ahriman will incarnate and set up the Beast system through quantum computing, androids, and transhumanism. Keep your eyes open, and off the TV.
Yeah… Art embodies the Culture of the day…. and Giger certainly captures the spirit of our age.

You literally wrote this article based on your own fears, and Christian belief….you even state in your article and admit that by “all accounts” is nothing more than your own theory no facts at all. And I’m picking up what your putting down. I understand what your saying but it’s just your perception. You obviously know nothing about H.R. Giger besides what is obvious and you make assumptions. You know nothing about Art it also seems. Just because I draw satan doesn’t mean that I worship or idolize. Art is an expression and he simply was expressing things he had experienced one way or another.
