The Order of Nine Angles was originally formed in England in the 1960s, with the merger of three neopagan temples called Camlad, The Noctulians, and Temple of the Sun. Following the original leader’s emigration to Australia, it has been alleged that David Myatt took over the order and began writing the now publicly- available teachings of the ONA. The ONA now has associates, and groups, in the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Russia, and Iceland.
Author Nick Ryan has asserted that Anton Long, the author of the ONA’s public tracts, is a pseudonym of David Myatt, a person who was involved with the neo- Nazi movement in England. This assertion is repeated by Nicholas Goodrick- Clarke, who claims that David Myatt was the founder of the ONA and writer of most of the ONA documents, and had previously acted as bodyguard for “British Nazi Colin Jordan”.
Ryan states in his book that Myatt lived in the 1990s on a smallholding in Shropshire with Christos Beest, who has given several interviews on behalf of the ONA and performed a live recording of The Self-Immolation Rite that was included with Vol. 2 No. 3 of Fenrir.
David Myatt has always denied such allegations about involvement with Satanism, the Order of Nine Angles, and using the pseudonym Anton Long, and repeatedly challenged anyone to provide any evidence of such allegations . In addition, Myatt challenged two journalists – Nick Lowles (from Searchlight) and Nick Ryan – to a duel for repeating such allegations, a challenge which they both declined.
