An Exposé On The “Satanic Illuminati” Messages Of Metal Bands

A video entitled “Exposing Metal Bands (satanic illuminati) PART 1” from user AprilAndWayneShow has been slowly gaining interest on YouTube (as of this posting, the video has over 70k views). The video takes several metal bands, including Whitechapel, Veil of Maya, Suicide Silence, and more, and “proves” that their music, their visuals, and their lyrics all promote the worship of Satan and steer people away from the one true religion: Christianity.

Rife with spelling and grammar errors, the video and the “proof” is full of holes. For instance, in trying to convince the viewer that the musicians are possessed by the Devil, the video uses quotes directly from musicians such as “…It’s like a mysterious energy that comes from the metaphysical plane and into my body. It’s almost like being a medium…” (Marc Storace of Krokus) or, “…I’ve always considered tha there was some way where we were able to channel energy, and that energy was able to be, from another source, if you like, like a higher power or something, that was actually doing the work.” (Bill Ward of Black Sabbath).

Notice that neither of these quotes discusses whether it is God or Satan that is the “energy”. It’s simply the fact that these are metal musicians that makes them inherently evil.

The joke of a video can be seen below along with another video that, for as amusing as it is, is also very applicable in this situation.

  • I’m Sorry but i laughed at this video it is full of some of the most Ignorant and uninformed information i have ever seen. Not to mention that those whitechapel lyrics are more about government influence at least that’s what i take away. Not to mention you kinda lose all credibility when you mention the Illuminati in this fashion and when you drone on and on about religion when you dont even know what you’re talking about.The Saddest fact is the people who believe what this video says are so irrational and illogical that they wont believe anything but there viewpoint which is coming off as kinda brainwashed.

    Every deathcore band is made up of shape shifting reptilians.

    Jeesh, Didnt this die out in the 80’s? Nobody would beleive that Ozzy and Kiss are satanist anymore so they found a whole new bunch of bands to target.

    Two things, one: no sources our cited for this quasi-“factual” information, and two: apparently words that are so metaphorical to today’s English language such as heaven and hell are still literal in the eyes of Christian, fear-mongering, babies.

    Without a doubt the “energy” that these band members mention is Satan. Mysterious forces are either good or bad, and how do you know if they are good or bad?? By their fruits, and the fruits of these metal bands, their message are NOT good. Even without looking at their fruits, “channeling energy” and “mediums” are definitely not of God. Everything about metal bands is completely contradictory to the good things in the bible, and break many commandments, one for example a commandment stating not to make images of the dead.
