Heavy metal drummer Will Carroll, of the San Fransisco band Death Angel, says he went to hell and ‘met Satan’ while in a 12-day coma fighting the coronavirus.
He tested positive to COVID-19 in mid-March after returning home to San Francisco following a tour in Europe. He was hooked up to a ventilator and placed into an induced coma when doctors discovered liters of fluid in his lungs.

Carroll spent the next 12 days comatose, during which time ‘he saw himself leave his body and plummet down to hell, where Satan punished him for the deadly sin of sloth’.
He told The San Francisco Chronicle that the female devil ‘morphed him into a Jabba the Hutt-like-monster who vomited blood until he had a heart attack’.
Since waking, he has reevaluated his life, saying he has now given up hard alcohol and ‘bong rips’ and is giving himself up to a higher power.
‘I don’t think Satan’s quite as cool as I used to,’ the Death Angel drummer stated.
‘I woke up on the hospital bed with tubes coming in and out of me, and there was a nurse right there and my first words were, “Am I still in hell?” She ignored me,’ he told The San Francisco Chronicle.
In the six weeks since, Carroll says he has completely changed his life.
He says he will no longer smoke marijuana or indulge in hard alcohol – but will continue to eat edibles and occasionally drink ciders.
‘I’m still going to listen to satanic metal, and I still love Deicide and bands like that,’ he stated.
‘[But] as far as for my personal life and my experience of what I went through, I don’t think Satan’s quite as cool as I used to.’
He says he now also believes in ‘a God’ following his near death experience, because ‘he feels the prayers from his family and friends helped him pull through.’
