A thrash metal drummer says he visited hell during a coronavirus-induced coma — and Satan wasn’t as cool as he thought.
Will Carroll, of the band Death Angel, was comatose at the California Pacific Medical Center for two weeks in March after catching the virus on a European tour earlier that month, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Datebook.
During that time, Carroll, 47, said he had disturbing dreams of visiting the afterlife.
There, the devil — a woman in this case — punished him for the deadly sin of sloth and turned him into a “Jabba the Hutt-like-monster” who vomited blood until he had a heart attack, the outlet reported last week.
When he opened his eyes on March 30, there were “tubes coming in and out of me, and there was a nurse right there,” Carroll recalled.
“My first words were, ‘Am I still in hell?’”
