Death Angel drummer Will Carroll was in a 12-day coma while battling COVID-19 in the California Pacific Medical Center, and while in that coma, he said he came face-to-face with satan.

Carroll spoke about his experience battling the coronavirus in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle’s DatebookThe article notes, “While in the coma, Carroll said he had dreams of visiting the afterlife. He saw himself leave his body and plummet down to hell, where Satan — a woman in his case — punished him for the deadly sin of sloth, morphing him into a Jabba the Hutt-like-monster who vomited blood until he had a heart attack.”

Carroll said, “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.”

So, what do you do after you “meet” Satan? For Carroll, it means making some lifestyle changes like “living a healthier life without hard alcohol or bong rips, though he’ll still drink the occasional hard cider and narrow his marijuana use to edibles.”

Carroll, however said he was “…still going to listen to satanic metal,” but “…I don’t think Satan’s quite as cool as I used to.”
