THANKS TO CLAUS LAUFENBURG for these rare and legendary concert stills from Radio Werewolf's early '90s European "End of the World" concert tour . These stills are from concert footage Herr Laufenburg filmed for Video Werewolf music documentary videos.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE NEWS ON THIS THEME: A massive video-to-digital transfer project is currently underway to save many of Zeena's archived VHS video cassette tapes for posterity. Plans are to re-release the videos that the stills in this gallery are from, as well as many other vintage Radio Werewolf videos and formerly lost TV and film appearances of Zeena from the 80s and 90s! This will be a laborious, time intensive project. So please have patience. We will keep you posted as new additions to the archives are available.
By Brett Buchanan for Alternative Nation, Jul 25, 2016 - Frances Bean Cobain recently made a post on Instagram showing the legendary image of Zeena from the Geraldo Rivera 1988 Satanism special. The post explained why Bean-Cobain is ‘fascinated’ with Satanists. She wrote in her answer: “Zeena Schreck LaVey[...] (I’m not a satanist but I find them fucking fascinating).”
Frances Bean Cobain obviously didn't know that Zeena renounced satanism AND the name LaVey before Frances was even born! If Zeena Schreck is why she's "fascinated with Satanists", hopefully she knows too that Zeena's been a practicing Buddhist for ages - after she ditched her charlatan dad and his plastic devil horns.
In any case, we wish Frances the best and hope she can find peace from a tumultuous family history in the same way that Zeena has.

Classic Rock describes Radio Werewolf as:
Formed during the height of “Satanic Panic” hysteria in mid-80's America, Radio Werewolf was once considered “the most dangerous band in the world”, largely due to the notoriety of their vocalist, Zeena Schreck.

FOR ST. PATRICK'S DAY: Zeena's tone poem LUCHORPAN, a Celtic Fairy Tale inspired by the 1/4 Irish in her!
“LUCHORPAN makes audible the faery realm, the elves, kobolds and mischievous “little people” who guard the treasures of pagan European heritage. In this case, they appear in their Gaelic, Irish form.”

KPOPSTARZ reports: "Need a little extra special magic for a romantic Valentine's Day? A new fashion art T-shirt may seem like it is coming out of left field but, coming from a magical icon, it is really only coming from a left hand path.
Zeena Schreck, announced that she will launch the new 'Zeena: High Priestess Of Seth' fashion-art t-shirt at the LA Art Book Fair, which runs from February 11 through 14, 2016.
The launch is being presented by Heinzfeller Nileisist, the same artist who presented "The Zaum of Zeena: A Collection of Interviews, Essays, Quotes and Images" at last year's NY Art Book Fair.
The special T-shirt was esigned by Frank Haines in cooperation with Zeena as a companion piece to The Zaum of Zeena art-zine."
"Zeena also announced she will be doing a live performance of ritual sound art at Kantine am Berghain Berlin on Feb 28, 2016. Zeena was asked to perform by King Dude and Greyzone Concerts & Promotion.
"Actually this happened on special request from the main act that night, King Dude," said Sabrina Debora Boller of GreyZone Concerts & Promotion told KpopStarz exclusively.
"I think Zeena as a person stands for many things, for spiritual enlightenment as well as for a strong cultural background. We are very honored that she will be performing.
Zeena is the Hemet-neter Tepi Seth of the Sethian Liberation Movement. She is possibly the most powerful and renowned magical practitioner alive today. Her tone art is inspired by her experience within the "esoteric, shamanistic and magical traditions of which she's practiced and taught," reads a statement on her website."

By the kind invitation of King Dude and Greyzone Concerts & Promotion: Zeena will perform sonic ritual soundscapes for the magically and mystically inclined.
Zeena's tone art is inspired by her experience within the esoteric, shamanistic and magical traditions of which she's practiced and taught. Her soundscapes and chanted incantations unlock inner gateways to the deepest dimensions of spiritual awakening. The positive effects of which are often reported by audience participants as occurring in dreams, synchronicities and other-worldly, supernatural experiences in the hours and days following her performances. As an initiated tantric yogini and magician, all of her creative work, including her sonic performances, graphic artwork and writings, can be understood as catalysts to awakening the pure awareness (Buddha-mind) inherent within all beings.
This rare event will be both meditative and stimulating - not to be missed!

New Review of The Zaum of Zeena
by Luca Piccolo:
[La versione in lingua italiana di questa recensione si trova sotto il testo in inglese.]
The Zaum of Zeena, published by Frank Haines in 2015, is presented as a "collection of Interview, Essay, Quotes and Images" of the artist Zeena Schreck. Interviews closely analyze the most interesting aspects of the life, the thought and the philosophy that always accompanies Zeena. As is written in the first pages of this volume, "her art, like her music, is best understood as a non-verbal trans-rational branch of her spiritual teaching"; the best way to understand this is to read this text. In fact, Zeena's art is the main issue covered in the first interview presented in this volume, which happens to be my own interview with Zeena originally published in WSF (online art journal).
This is followed by excerpts from the interview with the author Konstantinos that focuses on exploring spirituality and the magical path of this artist. A theme which is then expanded upon in a different way in the wonderful interview with Che Chetty (for the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics, University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa), where certain aspects of Tantra are analyzed and investigated. In this series of questions and answers we see two alternating fronts: the accademic vs. the practical knowledge.
The interview by Maxime Lachaud, drops us completely into the musical dimension of the artist, and investigates mainly the work that Zeena made with recordings for Radio Werewolf. Also relevant to her work during Radio Werewolf is an extract from "Mythos Wewelsburg: Fakten und Legenden" by Daniele Siepe, in which the artist explaines the reason for a particular position/asana she takes in a scene from her Video Werewolf film "Germany: The Theory of Ruins" (1992). Both of these interviews make us reflect on the meticulousness that the artist uses for the realization of every single opera. With this in mind, it spontaneously came to me how the composition of this volume was not at all left to chance.
Also included in this collection are two writings by Zeena originally published in the Beatdom Magazine # 11 (referring to "Liberation under the Snow Moon," the story of a salvific mission to free captive wolves from a fur farm) and Vice Magazine ("A Tale of Two Birds and Tantric Meditation ").
All the interviews are linked together through a series of quotes and images, which greatly augment the value of the text and make for a most pleasant and smooth reading experience. Between the lines we also see beauty and clarity: perhaps the two most emotionally engaging effects of this pubblication.
This is a text that gives to the general public the opportunity to open up to the understanding of Zeena Schreck and her art. It is certainly a must read by anyone interested in the spiritual and artistic aspects of Zeena. But also for those who have only a marginal interest in these topics, it is still a treat.
2015 Naples, Italy
The Zaum of Zeena, editato da Frank Haines nel 2015, si presenta come una “collection of Interview, Essay, Quotes and Images” dell’artista Zeena Schreck. Le interviste analizzano da vicino gli aspetti più interessanti della vita, del pensiero e della filosofia che accompagna Zeena da sempre.
Come appare scritto nelle prime pagine di questo volume “her art, like her music, is best understood as a non-verbal trans-rational branch of her spiritual teaching”; il miglior modo per comprenderlo è leggere questo testo. È infatti l’arte di Zeena la tematica principalmente trattata nella prima intervista, quella di Luca Piccolo.
Seguono poi alcuni estratti dall’intervista con l’autore Konstantinos che fa convergere le proprie domande su questioni che indagano la spiritualità e il percorso magico dell’artista. Tematica che poi verrà sviluppata in un altro modo nella stupenda intervista con Che Chetty (for the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics, University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa), dove sono invece analizzati e indagati alcuni aspetti del Tantra, in questa serie di domande e risposte vediamo alternarsi due fronti: quello accademico e quello della conoscenza pratica.
L’intervista di Maxime Lachaud, ci cala completamente nella dimensione musicale dell’artista, e indaga principalmente il lavoro che Zeena ha compiuto con le registrazioni di Radio Werewolf; così come nell’estratto da “Mythos Wewelsburg: Fakten und Legenden” di Daniele Siepe, viene spiegata una posizione/asana che l’artista assume in una scena di “Germania: The theory of Ruins” (1992), from Video Werewolf film. Entrambe le interviste ci fanno riflettere sulla meticolosità che l’artista utilizza per la realizzazione di ogni sua singola Opera. Tenendo presente ciò, sorge spontaneo il pensiero che anche la composizione di questo volume non sia affatto stata affidata al caso.
Sono inoltre inclusi in questa raccolta due scritti della stessa Zeena già pubblicati su Beatdom Magazine # 11 (parliamo di “Liberation under the Snow Moon”, racconto di un’azione salvifica per liberare alcuni lupi) e su Vice Magazine (“A Tale of Two Birds and Tantric Meditation”).
Le citazioni e le immagini che compongono quest’opera fanno da anello di congiunzione tra tutte le interviste, e aumentano notevolmente il valore del testo, oltre a renderlo ancora più piacevole e scorrevole. Tra le pagine vediamo quindi affiancarsi la bellezza e la chiarezza: forse i due elementi emotivamente più coinvolgenti dell’opera.
È questo un testo che dà al grande pubblico la possibilità di aprirsi alla comprensione di Zeena Schreck e della sua Arte. Va indubbiamente letto da chiunque abbia interesse per il percorso spirituale e artistico di Zeena, ma anche, da chi ha solo un interesse marginale per le tematiche trattate.
