This milieu includes a diversity of Satanic and post-Satanic currents which have established the ‘sinister’ as a significant sub-category of Left-Hand Path ideology. Some groups affiliated with the Order of Nine Angles to varying degrees have ad-vanced the concept of the sinister in novel directions removed from the category of ‘Satan-ism,’ further specifying the sinister milieu’s conception of the Left-Hand Path.
