Evil Music, Evil Demon?


My name is Ian and the story I'm about to tell you was very weird and scary to experience. This happened when I was about 11 years old. My family and I have lived in my house since I was 3 years old and it's almost a 200 year old house.

Growing up my brother Tommy was a big fan of death metal. I mean he loved evil stuff. One day I was in my room watching TV and all of a sudden I hear the song "Raining Blood" by Slayer going full blast in my brother's room. At that time I was the only one home.

My mom and dad were working and my brother was hanging out with friends, so here I am watching TV and I hear the song come on full blast so I thought my brother was home. I went in there to tell him to turn it down but when I open the door I saw this demon like creature on my brother's bed looking at me and it had this huge smile on its face. When I looked at it I froze, I wanted to move but I couldn't and then I just remember blacking out and later on I woke up to my dad holding me asking me what happened.

I couldn't tell him because I was so confused. When I was about 13 I could finally tell him and my mom. My mom made me see a therapist, so I'm not sure what I saw was real but all I can say is it felt very, very, very real.

When did she say that listening to the music was evil? I think a lot of you metal heads are being defensive. She's just sharing her experience. She never once said rock was evil. It's just her account. I love rock music to. But I'm not ignorant enough to deny the fact that music is in fact spiritual sense the beginning of time, and certain kinds do attract ugly spirits. Just listen to some of the things these bands are singing about.

ok man what you saw most likely was real cause how is a stereo going to come on by its self I had a tv do that and every time it came it would be on a channel having something to do with demons so I got rid of the tv and cleansed my house and nothing happened until about two weeks later this time it wasn't a demon but something good it turned on and it was on a preacher saying that not all metal music isn't the cause of evil but some have hidden messeges in the music that could summon something bad like that

You know the "Hotel California", by the Eagles is supposed to be about the church of Satan? Also, some conspiracy theorists say that the music industry is involved in the occult. Anyhow, I digress -- is any of that true? Who knows, but it's fun to think about. To me as vibrational beings, music could very well serve as vibrational magnet of sorts. It's been proven that sound alone can cause hallucinations if certain hemispheres of the brain are triggered i.e binural beats etc.

Yeah, uhm... My iTunes library gets much more evil than Slayer, yet I have no demonic entities here. Not the music that caused this to happen to you, sir.

Gorgoroth, anyone?

That is scary and don't listen to all of these people telling you that music doesn't summon demons, the demon TURNED ON the music so your brother most likely invited it in some way...

First they just can't come they MUST be invited, I'm thinking you had a bad kid day IE too much candy, Gatorade ect... And they would never show themselves as they really are, but what I think you may have seen was a very mean, human manifestation and I think thay would be the real danger... It can be just as bad...

Kiddo... If Slayer is summoning demons to your humble abode, I don't even want to imagine what listening to Through the Eye of the Dead has done for mine.

For real, music isn't summoning the devil's subordinates to your home.

Despite whether or not demons are fond of good music and not some Liza Minelli garbage, I'm pretty sure they aren't coming to kick back in your bro's room when he's not home.

I mean, really. What are they doing in there? Chilling on his bed, smokin' a dooby, eating some empanadas, and listening to Slayer?

Seriously. This website is overloaded with stories like this. Get a life.

I agree, music is music. I have contacted Demons that loved metal but they could just as easily love folk, country, whatever.

Good points were made by Wicked on this story.
Other occult connections may have also been involved, objects, books, etc.

I don't necessarily believe your story. But I'll say this. If anything like that happens again, even if it is your imagination, it could still be satan projecting an image into your brain, even if it isn't there. Immediately pray to Christ and Mary. Out loud. When demons or satan hear even the name of Christ or Mary, they get unbelievebly terrified, and they banish immediately.

Echostrung, well said, my friend, well said... Although Slayer isn't my fave... Maiden anyone? Tool perhaps? If you listen to the words of Eulogy it can be taken as mocking Jesus... But I digress... Slayer is kind of the most stereotypical "evil" band. However rest assured that there is no demonic connection between entertainment and "satanic" music and Satan. It's all entertainment, after all.

I was watching this show, about a ghost hunter. He said the reason he became a ghost hunter is because when he was young, and I think it was when he was 11, he woke up and seen a demon staring at him, with a huge smile that went up the sides of his face.
To me, from what you described sounds like the same sort of demon. Not that this is any advice, but I hope all goes well!

ok first of all:COBzeppelin99 says "yes promghost, I know that demons can show themselves, but not in the way he described...

How do you know he wasn't dreaming? Or his imagination? Or even when you say you saw a demon... You will NEVER see a red demon with horns standing right there in front of you looking at you"

The only description he gave was "this demon like creature on my brother's bed looking at me and it had this huge smile on its face"

And second, how do you know he WAS dreaming or that it WAS his imagination? Is it really so hard to be open-minded to others' stories?

For what it's worth early16 I don't think therapy was the way to go. Trust your instincts is my best advice. If they tell you it happened, then it most likely did. If they tell you to run then run. We have instincts for a reason.

Liking Slayer (good band) and Metal doesn't make you evil, I get extremely tired of people making that connection.

yes promghost, I know that demons can show themselves, but not in the way he described...

How do you know he wasn't dreaming? Or his imagination? Or even when you say you saw a demon... How do you know it was not yours? My friends have seen demons. I have seen UFOs, but I'm sorry to say that I cannot believe this story.

Calm Down ok.


I agree with KimSouth0. Demons do and will show themselves and Evil is among us. I have encountered a demon before. If it happens again, just pray out loud (Or to yourself) and ask for God to protect you.

God Bless! 😉

I happen to be religious and know quite a lot about demons. You will NEVER see a red demon with horns standing right there in front of you looking at you. First of all, demons can't touch you unless God let's them, and they can't play your music or do anything like that. His brother probably left his radio running, and he probably imagined seeing a red demon there.

Please do not let the comments of an angry reader (COBzepplin99) offend or upset you. There are many different reasons stories may not be published.

I also believe strongly that demons do and will show themselves. Evil is walking among us and sometimes it shows itself.

Have you had any other encounters after this one?

God Bless!

hey nice fake story kid. They wouldn't post my true story because they didn't believe it. Demons will NEVER make a close appearance to you in person. You will never get a close look at them

Well, I believe you were frightened at the time, and the music may have played some part, and I always heard 'demons' take great delight in scaring us humans, they find it amusing. Hopefully, this was just an 'isolated' incident.

okay, I'm totally freaked and believe you as I was just listening to pendulum-the other side, and as soon as the lyrics "come on down to the other side, come with us through the gates of hell" a vase just fell off my windowsill and smashed on the floor! 😭

If you would, could you describe the creature in detail because it could help me figure out what exactly you saw.

Woahh Slayer is an awesome thrash metal band, man. Not death metal... Just fyi.

I'd believe it were a demon if you smelled something and it got cold, but I'd say his music probably scared you and you had a nightmare. Usually demons don't just appear and then go away like that. Demons are usually a problem that sticks around until you have a strong faith to fight them.
Remember, not all metal heads are into dark practices.

So far out of all the stories I have read on this website this was the scariest. Being scared while reading what happened to you I can't even imagine how scared you were. My mom always tells me to ask my guardian angels for protection. I know this might sound weird to you but you should consider that 😁

Hello early16. Unless your brother was into more than just music, I doubt if it was a demon you saw. If he did like a friend of mine did and dabbled in the black arts it could have been a demon -checking things out. Talk to your brother and see if he was messing where he shouldn't have been, after all it was in HIS ROOM, not yours. Take Care.
