Episode 011- Satan Laughing Spreads His Wings: More Horror in Music


Episode Direct Download (opens new tab)

Continuing with the horror and music theme, I’m focusing this episode on Heavy Metal music. 

This hugely popular music bears the brunt of accusations of satanic imagery and messages.  Few actual crimes were influenced by heavy metal, but it became associated with satanic rituals and murders due to a “satanic panic” that gripped the nation in the 1980’s.

Did the furor over the music by a “moral majority” actually fuel crimes associated with it?

I also talk about my own relationship with Metal, and how it empowered me, led to great friendships, and endless arguments with my family.
