As members of a secretive brotherhood, Freemasons are no strangers to conspiracy theories. They've heard it all before: that they're child-sacrificing cult members, or religious zealots plotting a New World Order with the Jews, or satanic anti-religious alien spies.Now that Dan Brown wrote a book on the Masons, it's safe to say that mom, dad, grandma, and my 14 year old cousin will probably know a thing or two about the secret society. Thankfully, Southern Lord will cast a little darkness back upon the Brooklyn Masonic Temple when the label hosts an absolutely mind-bottling lineup of sunn O))), Earth, Pelican, and Eagle Twin on 9/22 as part of The Blackened Music Series. Tickets are still available, though if you're lucky, you can WIN A PAIR as well as a copy of sunn O)))'s Domkirke 2xLP! Just email us at BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with the subject line of "pronounced sunn not sunno" (include your first and last name).
With Dan Brown's newest novel, "The Lost Symbol," hitting bookstores on Sept. 15--much of it rumored to center around Masonic myths--the Masons are in preemptive damage-control mode. [Religion News]
