Michael Jenkins Moynihan (b. 17 January 1969) is an American journalist, publisher, and musician. He is best known for co-writing Lords of Chaos, a book about black metal. Moynihan is founder of the music group Blood Axis, the music label Storm Records and publishing company Dominion Press. Moynihan has interviewed numerous musical figures and has published several books, translations, and essays. In the 1990s, Moynihan was frequently characterized as a fascist or neo-fascist by some critics and fans. Moynihan accepted these descriptions with reservations in the 1990s, but in the 2000s dismissed them as inapplicable buzzwords used by "anti-this and anti-that activist types" and denounced the far-right.

He is the co-author with Didrik Søderlind of Lords of Chaos (Feral House, 1998), and has edited two books by the Italian traditionalist philosopher Julius Evola: Introduction to Magic (Inner Traditions, 2001) and Men Among the Ruins (Inner Traditions, 2002).
