Cliff Burton was one of a kind. He was the bass player for thrash metal band METALLICA from the years 1982 to 1986. At the time of his death, he was considered the greatest bassist in the Heavy Metal world, and was truly riding the lightning of international success. METALLICA had just signed their first major label deal with Elektra records.

During the European leg of the Damage Inc. tour, while touring in support of Master of Puppets album, the band complained that the sleeping arrangements on their tour bus were not satisfactory. Guitarist Kirk Hammett and Cliff drew cards to see who got to sleep in the remaining two bunk beds.

On the evening of September 26, 1986, Burton is said to have won the game with an Ace of Spades card. The musician was given the first choice of sleeping spot and pointed at Hammett, purportedly yelling to his friend and fellow band member in excitement: “I want your bunk!”

Hammett replied “Fine, take my bunk, I’ll sleep up front, it’s probably better up there anyway.”

Burton fell asleep shortly before 7 am on September 27 when, according to the driver, the bus lost control, swerving and skidding violently off the road (the E4, 2 miles north of Ljungby), and then the vehicle flipped onto the grass in Ljungby Municipality, near Dörarp in the rural part of southern Sweden.

The witnesses said Burton was thrown through the window of the bus, which next fell directly on top of him.

According to World History project:

A freelance photographer, Lennart Wennberg, was at the crash scene the following morning. He was later asked in an interview about the possibility that black ice caused the accident. Without hesitation, he said it was ‘out of the question’ because the road was dry and the temperature around two degrees Celsius (37 degrees Fahrenheit).

This was confirmed by police who found no ice on the road. Ljungby detective Arne Pettersson was reported in a local newspaper to have said the tracks at the accident site were exactly like ones seen when drivers fall asleep at the wheel. However, the driver stated under oath that he had slept during the day and was fully rested; his testimony was confirmed by the driver of a second tour bus that was carrying the band’s crew and equipment. The driver was determined not at fault for the accident and no charges were brought against him.”

Some fans have begun to raise questions about the exact cause of death in Mr. Burton’s case. Is it possible he was murdered as part of a Satanic ritual and the band covered it up with a bogus story?

It’s said that a crane was used to put the bus back up in its upright position after the crash. So photos of the accident should fully reflect the damage sustained from such an epic road disaster, right?

The good Lord knows that I certainly pissed off METALLICA fans big time in 2017 with my worldwide acclaimed HOAX that claimed Lady Gaga was going to record vocals on the next METALLICA studio album, so I guess pissing off a few more fans is not going to be that big of a deal. Yes, you know where I am going with all of this. It’s time to examine my Cliff Burton murder conspiracy theory.

Three decades after Mr. Burton’s untimely demise, I will take fans down the twisted path to his Creeping Death.

METALLICA, originally from Los Angeles, California, relocated to the the Bay Area of San Francisco, specifically because of Cliff Burton and his amazing talent as a musician. This northern region of the state is the same area where Bohemian Grove is located.

Once Lars and James witnessed Cliff playing bass in his band called Trauma, the time before he was asked to join METALLICA, it’s said they were quite intimidated by his greatness. They both knew deep down inside that the only possible way they could take their band to the next level was by recruiting Cliff.

Back in the early 90s, at the time the Black album was released, I actually met and shook Lars Ulrich’s hand at the Rainbow Bar and Grill restaurant in West Hollywood, California.

My party was asked to leave the booth we were seated at having drinks so Lars and his group could sit there instead. I was sitting with a buddy and two hot Swedish blondes…. thanks so much, pal!

I had just paid over $200 for the drink tab, so at first when the waitress asked us to give up our seats, I was confused. Apparently, this was Lars’ designated booth that he simply loved… maybe because it was located directly in the center where everyone could see the rock star in all of his glory. Regardless, I stood up and walked over to Lars and exchanged a “hello”, shaking his hand.

My buddy got laid later that night and ended up getting a classic case of “crabs,” so I guess in the end, I owe Lars a big “thank you” as well, because when he split up our little drinking party, I was separated from the chick I was chatting with for the rest of the evening.

The Rainbow is co-owned by famed music and film producer, Lou Adler. At one time, Lou ran Dunhill Records, now managed by Geffen Records, home to SOUNDGARDEN’s catalog. Okay, here is where things get even creepier.

Dunhill cigarettes were the favorite brand of late gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson… who himself was an alleged Satanist and director of snuff films during the early eighties at the same exact time METALLICA was making their rise in rock music.

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first-born man
Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man

I Rule the midnight air
The destroyer
I shall soon be there
Deadly mass

(Lyrics excerpted from METALLICA’s
song titled “Creeping Death”, written
by James Hetfied)

Mr. Thompson is said to have killed kids while filming their deaths at Bohemian Grove.

Being a Zionist Jew, Mr. Adler is most certainly a secret member of the masonic lodge. This is the only way he would be able to have such an incredible status in a Luciferian controlled industry, understand?

So, Lars being connected to Lou in this manner, holding favor at the man’s own club… is very telling.

By devising a sensational rock star tragedy, that worked off using Cliff Burton’s immense popularity, this brought a ton of fame and notoriety to the band on a mainstream level that helped make them the biggest act in rock music today, generating billions over their career in concert ticket and record sales.

Looking at Mr. Adler’s background more closely, he was the genius behind the Mama’s And The Papa’s, who were part of the Laurel Canyon/CIA/MK Ultra mind control scene of the sixties, where LSD and MDMA were consumed in vast amounts and wild Satanic sex orgies were thrown by filmmaker Kenneth Anger, a close pal of actor Jack Nicholson, said to have been involved in the Sharon Tate murder cover up with actor/director Warren Beatty.

Get ready for this… do you know whose seat is next to Jack Nicholson’s at L.A. Lakers games?

None other than Lou Adler.

Cliff Burton was cremated. Sounds familiar, right? Typical modus operandi of the Illuminati is to get rid of any evidence by destroying the corpse so no second evaluation could be done by a coroner in America. Cliff’s ashes got scattered at the Maxwell Ranch.

The highway where the crash occurred is called E 4. The E 4 is the fastest road to go from Germany/Denmark to areas north of the Arctic Circle. Here is where things get super interesting.

The position of the Arctic Circle is not fixed; as of 19 June 2018, it runs, get this… 66°33″ north of the Equator. When adding 3 + 3 (33) that equals 6. So this number sequence equals the Mark of The Beast: 666.

The latitude reading depends on the Earth’s axial tilt, which is believed to fluctuate within a margin of 2° over a 40,000-year period, due in part to strong tidal forces resulting from the orbit of the Moon.

At Cliff’s funeral ceremony, the song “Orion” was played. The words “…cannot the Kingdom of Salvation take me home?” are written on Burton’s memorial stone. In my opinion, this statement is a direct mockery of the Christian religion and all of its followers.

“I wasn’t too angry in the beginning. I was obviously grieving, but the anger started setting in when I realized that it’s not new that people in rock-n-roll die, but usually it’s self-inflicted in terms of excessive drink or drug abuse. He had nothing to do with it. It’s so useless. Completely useless.”

– Lars Ulrich, January 1987

Special tributes were run by the music press the week after the purported crash. In Kerrang!, advertisements were taken out by rock biz associates and fans; a totally bleak, black double- page spread ran a message by Jon Zazula (“The Ultimate Musician, The Ultimate Headbanger, The Ultimate Loss, A Friend Forever”).

Mr. Zazula, also known as “Jonny Z,” owns New Jersey’s Rock’n Roll Heaven record store. He also founded Megaforce Records, the label that put out METALLICA’s first two albums.

Orion is the 7th track off of METALLICA’s 3rd studio album entitled, Master of Puppets.

As the story goes, “Burton, who grew up with Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin near San Francisco, was a cross between Clint Eastwood and E.F. Hutton: Didn’t say much, but when he did, people listened. Especially Hetfield and Ulrich, who were puppies with peach fuzz and acne when they relocated Metallica to the Bay Area in 1983 to be closer to Cliff. Cliff Burton had flavor: he wore bell-bottoms, read H.P. Lovecraft, studied piano, and even went to junior college. He drove a 1972 VW station wagon. He was the son of Jan and Ray Burton, two San Francisco hippies and he still had those hippie ideals; he liked his beer, liked his pot or whatever, liked to chill out, and he was really laid-back, relaxed and happy.”

“Orion” is an instrumental song that is said to be named after the star constellation, Orion, due to the track having a “spacey sounding bridge.”

The tune was written by Hetfield, Ulrich, and Cliff. Digging even deeper, I came across The Book of Orion, which is “an occult grimoire that presents a profound study on spirituality and ancient symbolism through an initiatory formula that echoes the timeless connection between the psychology of the incarnated mind and the many indefinable layers of divinity. It is an intricate work on the mysteries of Death, Life and Rebirth that develops the premise where the key to the hidden gnosis that holds the secrets of the Universe can be found in the subtlest details in nature.”

“It takes the reader through a realm of lost cultures, encoded mythology and forgotten wisdom, exploring the mental and spiritual tools for the ageless quest of inner growth and understanding by touching the very fabric of immortal consciousness. By presenting a cryptic layer of Asetian philosophy the author educates the student of the occult in how to find, explore and interpret the many roads to personal enlightenment, along with its deceptive traps and illusions, ultimately liberating the spiritual seeker with the power and trust to look within and to conquer his own reality.”

A post on Reddit takes us back to the tragic event:

So here are the facts about the Cliff Burton accident:

a) The driver of the bus remains unidentified, which is bizarre considering that the band must have known the man driving their tour bus;

b) The driver claimed that the bus had skidded on black ice and overturned; however, a search of the area revealed no black ice on the stretch of road on which the accident occurred.

For whatever reason, no record of the driver’s name was kept and none of the band members can recall the man’s identity.

The Staged Scene: Notice How There Is No Major Structural Damage To The Bus?

Mick Wall’s Metallica biography, “Enter Night,” contains a detailed description of the accident and its aftermath, and even he was perplexed at the mystery of Cliff’s death:

“What happened next has long been shrouded in a degree of uncertainty, and, it must be admitted, some of it remains so, not least the identity of the bus driver. Nobody I spoke to who was on the bus, including tour manager Bobby Schneider, seems to recall the driver’s name – or if they do, they are not telling for reasons is it difficult to ascertain. Nearly a quarter of a century later, nobody from the Swedish police or local press seems to have a record…of the driver’s name, either…

They always say, “the Devil is in the details,” right?

Look at the numbers of the day and month Cliff died. The 9th month (September) on the 27th day. 9 + 27 = 36.

There you have your 3 -6’s for the Mark of the Beast.

Cliff’s father and mother lived as hardcore bohemian elites who were practicing Buddhists, which explains the Anti-God stance Cliff explored as a young man.

(Look closely at the 666 in the snake)

At the time Cliff Burton died, METALLICA was at the point where they were looking to go mainstream and leave behind their more harsher thrash metal image. Cliff was said to not be thrilled with the future plans being orchestrated by drummer Lars Ulrich. Next the world would experience a more emotionally in tune METALLICA, with (gasp) short hair. I can see Cliff rolling over in his grave right now, can’t you?

If there was a growing tension in the band with Cliff, they hid it well. But certainly, once the band signed their soul over to a major label, obligations to Lucifer became more of a concern. If Cliff was made privy to the dirty deeds being done for the Devil, such as child sacrifice, and he was not agreeable to that sort of thing… well, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out what happens when a secret society calls your name, and you give them the middle finger. (Cue Sound FX Of Head Being Chopped Off By Guillotine)

I was just like Cliff growing up as a young man in the eighties. I sang and played bass in underground bands, wore my hair long, attended all the metal concerts I could afford, and I was diehard into both Dungeons & Dragons and Call of Cthulhu role playing games for over a decade, the latter based off H.P. Lovecraft’s Occult themed literary work. I actually was really hardcore into going to conventions and playing in actual competitions as a teenager too. Guess what? I still worship God, and no other.

At such a pivotal time in their career, should an egomaniac like Lars Ulrich, a Pagan clear down to the bone, perceive someone as a threat to his goals for the band… well, you never know what a man is willing to do to protect his own best interests.

The ugly truth is the destination for Cliff and METALLICA that fateful night was a hotbed for ritual killing.

“Grand Lodge of Denmark arose initially from two previous systems, “Grand Orient of Denmark and Scandinavia” and “The Danish Grand Orient”. Both have their origins in early 1920, but the roots are much older. The historical roots of these formations are extremely complex, but in Denmark they has been collected in one person, Carl William Hansen, called Ben Kadósh (1872-1936).”

Mr. Hansen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark the capitol of where Lars grew up. In September 1921, a man named Theodor Reuss issued fringe masonic charters to Hansen for Gnostic Primas, Memphis & Misraim, Ordo Templi Orientis and the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light.

OTO most famous member was Aleister Crowley, who Kenneth Anger worshiped. Now members today include actor James Franco, and many musicians and other celebs whose membership is kept secret from the public.

The ultimate breakthrough for METALLICA eventually came with 1991’s “The Black Album”. On the cover, a serpent is depicted. This was placed there for a reason. In my opinion, it was Lars’ way of secretly saying “Fuck You” to all of the Christians who buy his band’s music.

Kerrang! said Metallica is the album that “propelled [the band] out of the metal ghetto to true mainstream global rock superstardom.”

To date, “The Black Album, with over 16 millions units sold, is the top selling record on Nielsen Soundscan.

The album’s cover depicts a coiled snake that is taken from the Gadsden flag. The motto of the Gadsden flag is, “Don’t Tread on Me”, or in other words, according to Hetfield: “Don’t fuck with me!”

The lyrics of the song of the same name contains rattlesnake imagery which is inspired by 33 Degree Mason, Benjamin Franklin, and his suggestion that the rattlesnake is a perfect representation of the American Spirit.

It is considered one of the first US flags and is said to represent the 13 British colonies who first settled America.

The Snake on Stripes Flag became the Navy’s symbol for the New World Order’s staged Global War on Terrorism. This symbol is represented on all US battleships today.

Did you know that METALLICA at one time discussed kicking Lars out of the band? Maybe that would have not been such a bad idea… now looking at all of this Lady Gaga collaboration embarrassment he brought to their great legacy in the most recent years. Gaga gets down with Spirit Cooking, so the drummer’s strange fascination with the pop Witch has definitely left a black eye with their most loyal fans.

Lars claimed the bus “flipped” during the crash. Funny how there is ZERO DAMAGE seen on the top of vehicle afterward, in the photos taken at the scene.

Kirk Hammett said it “felt like we were going off a cliff.”

Let’s not forget the totally staged ‘mic fail’ incident when Gaga sang with METALLICA at the 2017 Grammys. It is obvious that Hetfield put on an ‘angry rocker’ act when things supposedly went awry and his mic would not work for him, so he had to go share one with Gaga, which allowed them to do a sweet little duet for the New World Order.

I dug deeper to see what potential Occult meaning the “black ice” reference made at the time of the crash. I learned it all connects to the Third Reich, Himmler and Satan. A German Occult expert explains:

“In creating – or re-creating – civilization anew the völkisch occultists were not content with re-defining art, culture, politics and philosophy – their ambition also reached out to cosmology – and the creator of this new cosmology was Hanns Hörbiger, who was an Austrian engineer from Vienna with roots in Tyrol. He took part in the construction of the Budapest subway and in 1894 invented a new type of valve essential for compressors still in widespread use today. Hörbiger’s cosmology is known as the Welteislehre (World Ice Theory), – also known as Glazial-Kosmogonie (Glacial Cosmogony).”

Hörbiger did not arrive at his theory through research but said that he had received it in a “vision” in 1894.

This means demon contact was established and this is how he attained the knowledge, much like when Aleister Crowley ‘automatically wrote’ the Book of Law, after establishing contact with an alien/demon entity.

According to his theory, ice was the basic substance of all cosmic processes, and ice moons, ice planets, and the “global ether” (also made of ice) had determined the entire development of the universe.”

As the story goes, “Set had a positive role where he accompanies Ra on his solar boat to repel Apep, the serpent of Chaos. Set had a vital role as a reconciled combatant. He was lord of the red (desert) land where he was the balance to Horus’ role as lord of the black land.”

Are you ready for the shocker? Set killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris.

“…James Hetfield later claimed to have smelled alcohol on the driver’s breath; an accusation that was never proved…there were other mitigating factors. It was British bus built for left-side driving….”

So therein lies the mystery: – who was driving the bus? And why exactly did the bus flip over?

Lars Ulrich is from Denmark. He was born in 1963… the same year the New World Order assassinated JFK.

During World War II, the Dutch province Zeeland was occupied by Nazi Germany between June 1940 and November 1944.

In 1944, Zeeland was thrashed upon for real by the Battle of the Scheldt and the Walcheren Landings.

“The major turning point for the Ulrich family was the year 1943 when they were informed of the Nazis’ intent to “purge” the Danish people. This rumor was strengthened by the deportation of the Danish police in 1943. In October the same year to prevent being arrested Lars’ grandfather, Einer, an Olympic tennis pro, who used his ties to the Swedish King King Gustav V, a recurring sparring and doubles tennis partner of his, to send his wife and two sons to Sweden in secret. One of those sons was Lars’ father.”

His family along with a group of other Jewish refugees were taken on a fishing boat by human traffickers across the Øresund strait, and after eventually getting caught by the Nazi’s, they tried another escape and got free of the treacherous Third Reich.

An expert on the evil cabal and MK Ultra survivor named Svali details how the power structure of evil works:

“The Illuminati are based in Europe, which is where their power base has always been. I remember being told as a young child that America was basically considered their “mission field” or the “land of opportunity” by those whose roots extend for hundreds of years or more into the ancient European dynastic bloodlines. This is why their power hierarchy around the world, whether in the U.S., Asia, Australia, Canada, or elsewhere will always point back to Europe, where the 13 rulers (they also call them “lords”) are based. Each ruler represents an area of Europe held under his sway; and each one represents an ancient dynastic bloodline. For example, the Hapsburg bloodline (Merovingian) is still active in Europe, although hidden, as well as the Rothschild and Battenberg bloodlines . In many modern European countries, the heirs of these bloodlines are immensely wealthy, and secretly are the “power behind the throne”, if not the actual rulers.”

In 1988, METALLICA released “…And Justice For All” album.

The cover was designed by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, features a representation of Lady Justice, bound by ropes, with two breasts bare and its scales tipping toward one plate filled with money. The album title is pure mockery of the American Pledge of Allegiance. The Satanist are vengeful against God, therefore they seek justice for all of the lost souls he has condemned, going back to the Salem Witch trials, and even further to when DeMolay was executed in 1314 in Paris, France under heresy crimes, in a brutal manner that many Luciferians felt was done inhumanely and as a direct affront to their loyalty to the Devil. These Pagans (who skin their sacrificial victims while they are still alive) believe themselves to be their own Gods. This is why people who worship the Devil reject Jesus Christ.

The official death pronouncement for DeMolay details the brutal agony he was subjected to:

“The canons pronounced that a relapsed heretic was to be burned without a hearing; the facts were notorious and no formal judgment by the papal commission need be waited for. That same day, by sunset, a pile was erected on a small island in the Seine, the Ile des Juifs, near the palace garden. There de Molay, de Charney, de Gonneville, and de Peraud were slowly burned to death, refusing all offers of pardon for retraction, and bearing their torment with a composure which won for them the reputation of martyrs among the people, who reverently collected their ashes as relics.”

The song “One” itself is about a war soldier who is wounded – arms and legs blown off by an artillery shell, blind and unable to speak or move – begging God to take his life as he feels constant pain. Again, a statement made to defy the creator and mock all of his followers.

In 1991, James Hetfield told Guitar World that he wrote the song’s opening based on an idea prompted by the Venom song “Buried Alive” from their second studio album, Black Metal.

“The idea for the opening came from a Venom song called “Buried Alive”. The kick drum machine-gun part near the end wasn’t written with the war lyrics in mind, it just came out that way. We started that album with Mike Clink as producer. He didn’t work out so well, so we got Flemming to come over and save our asses.”

Oddly enough, Lars Ulrich demanded that the bass tracks cut by new bassist Jason Newsted for this record be lowered in the mix to a point where it was not even audible. In 2017, I added the bass back to the mix, bringing up the levels and received worldwide acclaim for my work. I did this to honor Cliff, Jason, and ALL the bass players around the world jamming rock music in a band. I thought it was disgraceful then what Lars did to this album, after Cliff died… and I still think it’s totally insane today how the band has yet to release an official remix of this classic album that includes the bass as it was originally intended.
