Evgeny Nechkasov (Askr Svarte) - Left Hand Path Odinism in the Russian Tradition

Evgeny Nechkasov (Евгений Нечкасов), aka Askr Svarte, was born October 5th, 1991 e.v.* in the southwestern Siberian city of Novosibirsk, Russia, where he resides today.

Studying the occult at the age of 16, a year later he took the name Askr which means Ash-tree, Yggdrasil, and one of two people (Askr and Embla) who were found/created by Óðinn-Vili-Vé.

Having a deep interest in nature and spiritualism he began to research Rodnovery (Slavic paganism), and began to make connections with various pagan communities throughout Russia and across the world, finally taking Odinism as his spiritual faith.

Studying and practicing the Right Hand Path of Odinism until 2011 e.v. he later turned to the Left Hand Path and the practice of self-knowledge. At the same time he took the prefix Svarte to his name which means Black or Deep-dark.

In 2010 e.v. he became acquainted with the philosophy of Traditionalsm (R. Guenon, J. Evola) and the Russian school of traditionalism by Alexander Dugin and subsequently became a member.
2012 e.v. saw the completion and publication of his first book ' Svarte Aske' which means “Black Ash-tree” where he wrote of his first experiences of the Left Hand Path within Odinism**, which also includes his large 2011 e.v. paper on the philosophy of misanthropy.
In the same year he became personally acquainted with Volhv Veleslav and his doctrine of the Left Hand Path within Rodnovery and the 'Path Without Path', aka Russian Navoslavy (Chaosophy).

At this time he was already working on his website*** where he publishes information on his books and articles about the Left Hand Path, traditionalism and paganism.

In 2013 e.v. he published his second book, 'Gap' (now available in Enhlish),  which means “Abyss” and is about Chaosophy within Odinism - a far more extensive practice and study of the Left Hand Path in Odinism.
2013 e.v. also saw the release of his third book, a post script to his misanthropy sketches called the "Book of Indifference”.
Nechkasov is now writing about pagan traditionalism, the theory and practice of the Left Hand Path, making illustrations of his views, and takes a part in the "Pagan Poetry Front” formation and in the International Eurasian Youth Movement.

Svarte and Veleslav, 2013.
* Era Vulgaris
** The ideological conception of Svarte Aske - darkside Odinism, the search for the true self, non-duality, as developed by Evgeny Nechkasov, is the left hand path of Odinism within the Nordic Tradition in Russia, and is based upon the philosophy of Volhv Veleslav's 'Шуйный путь' (to remain untranslated) in regard to Rodnovery. It is somewhat similar to the Shuyngj Way, the concept of the left hand path of Odinism (the Native Faith of the Germanic peoples) of Nikarev Leshy in England - the path to self knowledge and the search for the god within by the stripping away of false masks, concepts, and Mala, through the shadow-side of Odinism, which is based upon both the philosophy of Nechkasov and Veleslav. All three paths are in stark contrast to the right hand path (or generally accepted exoteric ritualism) of both Odinism and Rodnovery, and are a far deeper and more dangerous way towards self realisation.

*** This site is about the darkside of paganism, the theory and practise of the Left-Hand Path in different traditions, especially within Northern Odinism. In addition, on this Blog Nechkasov publishes his books and essays about his own Path and Experience, which he calls "Svarte Aske", which means "Blaсk (or Darkness) Ash-tree". His alias, 'Askr Svarte', means Askr The Darkness/Black, where Askr refers to the Man which was created by Odin-Haenir-Lodur, alongside the Woman Embla. He also writes about the so-called 'Path Of Abyss', aka the 'Path Witout Path', using the Northern Tradition as the discriptive language.

All articles in the Blog are in Russian. The main principle is Liber Scientia - Free Knowlege. Nechkasov doesn't respect freak copyright hysteria, but he and other authors will be thankful for the preservation of authorship.
