Belzebass? Beelzebub or Beel-Zebub is a Semitic deity and literally it mean “Lord of the Flies”.
The source for the name Beelzebub is in 2 Kings 1:2-3, 6, 16. “Now Ahaziah had fallen through the lattice of his upper room in Samaria and injured himself. So he sent messengers, saying to them, “Go and consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, to see if I will recover from this injury. But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Go up and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?’
Ba‘al Zəbûb is variously understood to mean “lord of the flies” or “lord of the (heavenly) dwelling”. Originally the name of a Philistine god, Ba’al, meaning “Lord” in Ugaritic, was used in conjunction with a descriptive name of a specific god. The Septuagint renders the name as Baalzebub and as Baal muian (“Baal of flies”), but Symmachus the Ebionite may have reflected a tradition of its offensive ancient name when he rendered it as Beelzeboul.
In the Testament of Solomon he said unto him: “Beelzeboul, what is thy employment?” And he answered me: “I destroy kings. I ally myself with foreign tyrants. And my own demons I set on to men, in order that the latter may believe in them and be lost. And the chosen servants of God, priests and faithful men, I excite unto desires for wicked sins, and evil heresies, and lawless deeds; and they obey me, and I bear them on to destruction. And I inspire men with envy, and [desire for] murder, and for wars and sodomy, and other evil things. And I will destroy the world.”
Scholars are divided, in regard to the god of Ekron, between the belief that zebub may be the original affix to Baal.
Baal, also rendered Baʿal is a Semitic word signifying “The Lord, master, owner (male), keeper, husband”, which became the usual designation of the great weather-god of the Western Semites.
Bass music is pretty fancy nowadays, but two guys emerging from the metal scene and delivering wicked electronic music, it’s unusual and unexpected. I wrote about this project already, check it out HERE, now we’ve got a video, which is pretty wicked as well.
