Order Of Nine Angles Sigil



The indictment by a Grand Jury in a New York Court against Ethan Phelan Melzer {1} is interesting because it mentions the Order of Nine Angles (O9A) several times.

In regard to Count One of the indictment – Conspiracy to Murder U.S. Nationals – The Grand Jury charged, among other things, that:

              [quote] “the defendant, a Private in the U.S. Army, worked with members and associates of an extremist group called the “Order of the Nine Angles,” or “O9A,” to facilitate a deadly attack on members of MELZER’s Army unit. In or about late-May 2020, MELZER’s planned attack was thwarted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Army.
              By at least in or about 2019, ETHAN PHELAN MELZER, a/k/a “Etil Reggad,” the defendant, joined O9A. Members and associates of O9A have espoused violent, neo-Nazi, anti­ semitic, and Satanic beliefs, and have expressed admiration for, among others, Nazis, such as Adolf Hitler, and Islamic jihadists, such as Usama Bin Laden […]
              In or about April 2020, the U.S. Army informed MELZER and other members of his unit that they would be deployed to guard a U.S. military installation in another foreign country. After MELZER was notified of the assignment, he used an encrypted messaging application to send messages to members and associates of O9A.” [/quote]

In regard to Count Four of the indictment – Attempted Murder of U.S. Service Members – it states that,

              [quote] “the defendant […] willfully and knowingly attempted to and aided and abetted the attempt to kill U.S. nationals outside of the United States — which killing is murder as defined in Title 18, United States Code, Section llll(a) — to wit MELZER disclosed confidential U.S. Army information to members and associates of O9A to facilitate a deadly attack on his unit.” [/quote]

The indictment thus seems to indicate that the Grand Jury was convinced or assumed that there are “members” of an entity, a group, named the Order of Nine Angles and that, so far un-named, “members and associates” of the O9A were or may have been involved in a conspiracy to murder.

However, we – as a self-described O9A nexion not only consider ourselves as O9A “associates” (associating ourselves with O9A esoteric philosophy) but who also have studied the O9A corpus in detail over a number of years – are of the opinion that (i) there is no organized O9A group, organization or entity, only an esoteric philosophy, and (ii) no one, as alleged in the indictment in respect of Melzer, can “join” the O9A, only associate themselves with (agree with) its esoteric philosophy, or be inspired by that philosophy to the extent of striving to individually follow one of the three praxises or ways as described in O9A literature: the hermetic Seven Fold Way, the way of the Drecc/Niner, and the way of the Rounwytha. {2}

It will therefore be interesting for us – and for other O9A associates – to see if, at Melzer’s forthcoming trial, (i) his Defence Attorney challenges the claim that the O9A is a group which people can join and thus be members of, (ii) whether the Prosecution can name or know the identity of those alleged to have conspired with Melzer, (iii) whether or not the Prosecution have evidence – some things of evidential value – which proves that the O9A is a group or organization which has members and which Melzer could thus join, and (iv) whether or not the FBI used Confidential Informants and/or like Britain’s MI5 used undercover operatives to “infiltrate the O9A” {3} and pose, on social media platforms and messaging apps, as O9A “members” and associates.

It will also be interesting for us – and for other O9A associates – to discover, via the trial or otherwise, (i) if the FBI and/or other Federal agencies are actively pursuing leads in relation to those alleged to have conspired with Melzer, and (ii) whether or not – given allegations of conspiracy to murder – they are working with British agencies, such as MI5 and SO15, in respect of having something called the O9A banned (proscribed) by the British government as a terrorist organization.

Whatever, the Melzer indictment has (i) raised the profile of “the O9A” in Britain, in the United States and elsewhere, and (ii) led some individuals to consider what “the O9A” actually is, and (iii) added to the mythos of the O9A and thus further enhanced its Labyrinthos Mythologicus. {4}

{2} The three ways are:


Someone who lives a practical sinister life, and thus who lives by The Law of the Sinister-Numen (aka Code of Kindred-Honour) and who thus Presences The Dark in practical ways by practical sinister deeds. A sinister/O9A tribe or gang is a territorial and independent group of Dreccs (often including drecclings – that is, the children of Dreccs) who band together for their mutual advantage and who rule or who seek to rule over a particular area, neighbourhood, or territory. A sinister tribe is thus a practical manifestation of the Dreccian way of life.

Dreccs, and their associated tribe, rarely engage in overt practical sorcery and mostly do not describe themselves as Satanists or even as following the LHP. Instead, they describe and refer to themselves, simply, as Drecc.

A Niner is a freelance operative whose culture is that of the O9A, and who thus strives to live by our Code of Kindred-Honour and whose personal character manifests the O9A Ethos. Also sometimes used as an alternative name for a Drecc, although most Niners, unlike Dreccs, do not belong to a gang, clan, or tribe and thus are regarded by the authorities as “lone wolfs”.

Seven Fold Way:

The Seven Fold Way – aka Seven Fold Sinister Way, and Hebdomadry – is the traditional initiatory practice of the O9A and is a years-long willed, a consciously undertaken, esoteric and exoteric pathei-mathos whose genesis is practice of various Dark (Esoteric) Arts, Insight Roles, physical challenges and Grade Rituals, qv. the O9A text titled Naos and the chapter The Seven Fold Way Of The Order Of Nine Angles in the Feond section of The Seofonfeald Paeth book.

The aim of the Seven Fold Way is the individual discovery of Lapis Philosophicus; that is, wisdom. Which discovery creates a new type of human being; a type who manifests καλὸς-κἀγαθός.

Rounwytha Tradition:

Also known as The Way of the Rounwytha.

The muliebral tradition or principle which forms the basis for the inner (mystic, esoteric) Way of the O9A and which thus is one of the core principles on which the O9A is based.

In practical terms, and exoterically, this principle means: (i) a recognition of the need to extend one’s faculties by cultivating, developing and using esoteric empathy (aka Dark-Empathy), and (ii) the understanding that our Dreccian Code applies without fear or favour – equally, without distinction – to men and women of our kind, and that our kind are judged solely by their deeds and by how well they uphold kindred honour, and not by gender, sexual preference, or by any other Old Aeon categorization or prejudice. Thus this principle means, for instance, that the Vindex of O9A tradition can be either a male or a female warrior.

Esoterically, this tradition/principle is expressed in the archetype of The Lady Master and in the acausal form (the acausal entity) Baphomet, The Dark Goddess of O9A esoteric tradition to whom sacrifices were and are offered. The Rounwytha tradition is the basis for our new sinister feminine archetype, for the new ways of living for some of the women of our kind, and which ways of living involve:
(a) Women of our kind living by our code of kindred honour who thus are ready, willing, and able (trained enough) to defend themselves and rely on themselves and thus who possessed attitude, and skill enough, and/or carry weapons enabling them to, defeat a strong man or men intent on attacking or subduing them.
(b) Women of our kind placing this personal code of honour before any and all laws made by some State, and thus replacing supra-personal authority (of, for example, some State or institution) with their own self-assured and individual authority.
(c) Women of our kind relying on their own judgement, a judgement developed and enhanced by pathei-mathos, by learning from direct practical experience, from tough challenges, and one’s mistakes.
(d) Women of our kind developing and using their natural, their latent, their empathic and muliebral, abilities, qualities, and skills – such as empathy and intuition.
