Author and veteran punk drummer Joel Gausten (PIGFACE, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN, THE UNDEAD) has published his latest offering, "Words From The Third Side: Essays on Sex, Satan & Success". An autobiographical tale, "Words" chronicles Gausten's experiences as a longtime member of the Church of Satan as well as his memorable run-ins with members of MINISTRY, NINE INCH NAILS, BLACK SABBATH, THE GERMS, CHRISTIAN DEATH, MISFITS and many others. From partying at the Playboy mansion and dining with infamous gamblers to dodging gang warfare in Los Angeles and exploring the darkest elements of human sexuality, Gausten invites the reader into his private world and reveals some of the many surreal and memorable experiences that have defined his Satanic life.
