Playlist - World of Aleister Crowley

Ever since I heard “Mr Crowley” by British heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, back in the 1980s, I was always intrigued to find out more about him.  Who was Aleister Crowley?

Aleister Crowley was born on October 12, 1875, in Leamington, Warwickshire (United Kingdom). He came from a petty-bourgeois family of beer producers, belonging to the extreme Christian sect of the Plymuck Brothers, who used a literal interpretation of the Bible and treated it as the words of the Holy Spirit himself.

The Crowley House was a meeting place for sect members, which always evolved into religious services or disputes. Young Aleister spent most of his time reading the Bible under the watchful eye of his father, and when he was leaving to preach the word of God, he was taken under the tutelage of his mother who hated him – with reciprocity – by whom he was called Beast 666.

From Childhood, Aleister Crowley had a troubled life. Getting into trouble with his mother and at school until he was shipped away to a boarding school.

Most documentaries about Aleister Crowley haven’t gone in-depth into his early life. What makes someone an ego-occultist?
