At approximately 2:10, a back-masked voice is heard repeating what has been variously interpreted as a "god with horns" or a "god with hooves" to the sound of a crackling fire and a distant church bell. This becomes even more apparent when the extract is slowed down. While this has been interpreted by some as a satanic reference, it is worthy of note that the reference could in fact be to Wicca, a neo-pagan religion descended from ancient Celtic polytheistic beliefs. As stated in Wikipedia:

"It is commonly understood that most Wiccans worship two deities: the Goddess, often associated with
Gaea or Mother Earth, and her consort the God (sometimes known as the Horned God). These two deities
are usually thought of as equal complements to each other, and together represent all aspects of the
universe" (from wikipedia).

Cultural References

Many other works, in music as well as other media, feature the Horned God. Some notable examples:

  • The music of Coil.
  • The Sláine series of comics/graphic novels.
    • Slaine originally came to prominence in the comic 2000AD
    • The most notable nods to Wicca are in the eponymous Horned God cycle.
