I would not call Evola a Satanist or defacto Satanist. Some of his ideas are akin to Satanism in some ways, but diametrically opposed in other instances. Opposed more often than not, and on fundamental issues.
He is akin in advocating an elitism and natural aristocracy that insulates itself from the degenerate bovine mindlessness of the masses, and in much of his cultural criticism.
His transcendental "spirituality" is not compatable with Satanism at all. Evola was opposed to materialism in the philosophical sense and in the vulgar sense of the term.
Evola is a very interesting and erudite writer and a fascinating historical personage. As far as "spiritual" thinkers go, he has much more substance than the Crowleys and Krishnamurtis of the world, in my opinion.
He is definately a person of interest. Obviously of interest to some Satanists, who were largely responsible for his works being translated into English and being exposed to a wider audience.
Oddly enough, more of my "inner circle" are "traditionalists" after Julius Evola and Alain de Benoist than are Satanists, in the strict sense of the term.
