Don’t make the devil angry… Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side.

Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies.

Die Bedeutung von Tradition in den Alltagskulturen der Gegenwart unterliegt einem markanten Wandel. Unter dem Einfluss von Globalisierungsprozessen und dem Innovationsdruck der modernen Popkultur sinken die kulturellen Zugangsschwellen zu traditionalen Phänomenen. Tradition wird fluide und erfährt so eine Revitalisierung in den unterschiedlichsten populärkulturellen Medien. Am Beispiel der zentralen europäischen Traditionsfigur des Teufels zeichnet diese Studie den fundamentalen Wandel nach, den Satan, Mephisto, Luzifer durch den Transfer in das popkulturelle Medium Rockmusik vollzogen hat. Auf der methodischen Grundlage einer Analyse popularer Medientexte entwickelt sich so eine spannende und materialreiche Geschichte des Diabolischen in der Rockmusik von den 'Teufelspakten' des Delta Blues über das Spiel mit populärer Religiosität der Beatles bis zu den satanistischen Black-Metal-Szenen der modernen Heavy-Metal-Kultur. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sehr der Rekurs auf den Teufel stets von zeit- und gruppenspezifischen kulturellen Bedürfnissen gelenkt wird. Das Traditionale bleibt stets auch das Aktuelle. Es bildet eine wichtige Zukunftsoption innerhalb der reflexiven Moderne. Manuel Trummer, Dr. phil, arbeitet als wissenschaftlicher Assistent am Lehrstuhl Vergleichende Kulturwissenschaft im Institut für Information und Medien, Sprache und Kultur der Universität Regensburg. Forschungsschwerpunkte sind Populare Musikkulturen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts, Traditionale Phänomene im Prozess der Modernisierung sowie Ernährungskulturen im historischen und europäischen Vergleich.
