I think there's something wrong with people who can't distinguish between music and violence. There are a lot of people who just can't deal with the energy they feel and they release it in a negative way. They threaten, hurt or kill others. But I think it's just wrong to blame musicians like they did with the Columbine High School incident~ Sully Erna 

I deal with my own emotions and experiences in my songs. I found out that it's a lot easier for me to write songs when I'm down. I've experienced that it helps me and that it's a lot easier for me to write lyrics when I'm depressed. You're far more emotional and you just see things in a different way. If you're in a great mood, you don't notice a lot of things that seem to jump on you when you're down. When I recorded the album I went through a pretty bad depression and the songs seem to reflect it naturally. ~ Sully Erna

Contrary to what most people wish to believe, Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of thinking, an earth religion if you want. I believe it is the oldest religion, definitely pre-Christian, and we don't worship Satan or the devil because we don't believe in it. We believe that the earth is a mother to us all and we should honor and respect her and live a harmonious life. We don't own the earth but we are part of it and to destroy it means to destroy ourselves. We respect life above all. Respect for life and free thought I'd say are the basics for Wicca. We respect every other religion because we think all gods and goddesses are the same. People just worship them in a different way. Wicca is often mistakenly associated with evil, but we believe in Karma and if we do something bad it comes back to haunt us, as a godsmack! That's the basic creed, harm none. We don't sacrifice people and we don't sacrifice animals because we believe in harming no one. We also don't worship Satan; he is a Christian creation and they can keep him. Wicca doesn't work with fear. It's about your own consciousness and doing what's right. We believe in the Law of Three: whatever you do comes back three fold, good or bad.  ~Sully Erna

(regarding spells and potions) Mostly a Hollywood creation because it makes a movie more exciting. Spells are something like prayers. You wish for something and you try to direct your energy towards achieving it. If you think about it, it's not different from a prayer. Potions are mostly herbal remedies.  ~Sully Erna

 

Sully Erna is a devout, practicing Wiccan.  He is publicly open about his religious beliefs, but is against trying to 'convert' people.
