Occult symbolism in Tyler Childers' album 'Country Squire'

Very popular country artist, over 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify. I had been enjoying some of the tracks on this alum from 2019 until I saw the cover. No genre is safe. 

What do you think?

I see an orouboros, “as above, so below” (top left and bottom right hands), devil horns, an offering of a blunt (drug usage)(?), what I’m guessing are tantric hand symbols, couple illumination references (particularly the head candle), the goddess Kali as one of his apparent identities or backing forces, a reptilian (demonic?) politician, and the dichotomy of the fox and chicken (rooster).

Basically, “culture is demonically backed and its intent is destruction, so get with the program and do drugs to lose your mind in order to find enlightenment.”

I’m not very familiar with Hinduism, but I don’t believe they are. But what I did find is that Kali can have either 4 or 10 arms. There are 10 arms in the artwork: 8 for symbols and 2 holding his legs.

Good catch on the Leviathan cross!

As for the tongue of fire hypothesis, it’s an interesting parallel that could be drawn. Where the disciples spoke holy things so that all could hear and understand, this guy seems to be prepared to speak unholy things

And looking at a few other album covers and artwork, foxes seem to play a role. Foxes are intelligent, mischievous animals that will do anything to devour. Wonder if that’s what he intends to do, or if he’s the victim? One features a fox mid-pounce with a landscape drawn across it, while another is simply a silhouette in a fancy framework. In the accompanying artwork for this particular album, there’s a nighttime farmscape, in the midst of which is a goat with a glowing 3rd eye. By a dark barn is a fox, and on the other side of a lit-up trailer are a pair of goats. Other artwork is similarly new-agey and pushes the idea of connecting the spiritual and physical worlds through drug use and meditation.

As for the album art in question, a closer inspection shows that the drug paraphernalia is not a blunt, but a pipe.

Let’s play a game called How Many Satanic Symbols Can We Jam into an Album Cover?

One of the hands is making the 666 gesture. One of his eyes is squinting. And Kali, the snake at tbe bottom and the candle on the head indicate Illumination, which is kundalini Luciferian false life force energy. It’s an image of a person in the process of demonic possession through the raising of kundalini. The c**k and the fox are also symbols of Satan from European folklore, both solar symbols of Luciferian light. The other two figures are the two faces of Kali, aka Satan, one goddesslike Shakti, one monstrous Durga, and note the sun symbol on the hat of the pretty one, and the lighter in her hand. Wow, that is really horrible.

Not just the orouboros the leaves coming out of it make lucifers cross. Very creative and very satanic.
