Does Metal Music Invite Demons Or Evil Spirits To You?

    All of my life I have listened to metal and rap music. Last 5 years I have worked in rap music over the last year and a half I have become disillusioned the way that industry has gone so now I am making my own metal label.

    Awhile ago I was at my friends house and was going to put in a metal cd to listen to. His live in G/F told me not too since Metal invites evil spirits. I sort of brushed it of as I do with stuff that really doesn't make any sense to me.

    One thing I do sometimes is I put my PS3 on and put my TV on mute so I can listen to documentaries on YT. One documentary I ran into was this:



    I don't know if anyone has seen this but if anyone has or will I would like to have a discussion about it. There are parts 2 and 3 but this is the most interesting. The channel that put it out almost all their videos are filled with hate, ignorance and misinformation(IMO)

    How do people feel about metal music or actually any sort of music inviting evil spirits to you?

    Bad, dark evil music definitely invites evil spirits into the mind and body. I have believed that my whole life. Many horrific acts of murder and violence were committed while someone was listening to bad music. Over the years, I've read and heard of several accounts where this happened. It's been so long, I don't recall specifics, but you could research it.

    Charles Manson was influenced to conspire the atrocities that he did by the Beatles song "Helter Shelter", and that is not even considered bad by today's means. That actually is not the best example, but that's the only one I can think of at the moment.

    I wish I could go into more detail, but it's not something I've researched or read about recently, but it's definitely true.

    Also, in Near Death Experience (NDEs - where a person dies and then comes back to life) accounts of visiting Heaven, people have described Heavenly music that is too beautiful to even describe. Likewise, some NDEs visit Hell. So there is also hellish music on earth that is an instrument used by the evil one to corrupt minds of people.

    Music is, music, is music... What music you listen to is not what affects the person or the mind. The words and the intent of the music may, but only if "you" let it. Satan, the Devil, Beelzebub, or any other name you want to give him, does not own any type of music. Can music be a tool of the Devil? I suppose chocolate could be a tool of the Devil, if a person allows it to be. My point is, It is up to you, the individual, and your own relationship with God, that determines what affect anything has on you. Many horrific acts of murder and violence were committed during the era of Bach and Mozart. I wasn't there but I doubt it was the music's fault :rolleyes: (although there may be some who would argue that :ROFLMAO: ).
    If you enjoy the music and, you don't want to kill someone after listening to it, I say go for it.

    Yep, it's bad. Throw it all out and start listening to classical. You might enjoy listening to Phillip Glass if you are sad:

    Horrorcore Rap and Violent Music Is Destructive

    I'm sorry to say it but yes music can be a serious doorway for foul spirits and a tool for brainwashing and programming. Google 'the truth about hip hop.' I have lost count of the number if people who are so close to achieving a strong relationship with God but absolutely refuse to give up His spot in their hearts for Beyonce.

    It's not for me to argue how music affects any of you "personally". I see it like this:
    New International Version
    Titus 1:15
    To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

    Romans 14
    Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.

    5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. 6 Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. 8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9 For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.

    10 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister[a]? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. 11 It is written:

    “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
    ‘every knee will bow before me;
    every tongue will acknowledge God.’”

    12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

    13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. 14 I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean. 15 If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy someone for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil. 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, 18 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.

    19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. 20 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.

    22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves. 23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.

    I have seen all the stuff on hip hop, rap, metal and pop culture and satanism.......

    Looks like no one watched the video I posted but it doesn't matter I will say this about it.

    Those people did horrible research just simply horrible research about metal.

    First of like 90% of the bands they covered are metal core and death core & aren't even death or black metal which would have been easier targets to attack and provide info on.

    Instead of attacking bands like Born of Osiris, Faceless, Veil Of Maya they could have attacked bands like Deicide, Behemoth, Mayhem etc.... to make a more convincing argument.......

    Deicide lead vocalist has an upside down cross carved into his forehead and is known for his debates with bob larson in the 90s

    Mayhem's lead vocalist in the late 80's was obsessed with death which ultimately lead him to commit suicide(he had a NDE as a kid and I guess it messed him up)

    I'm just saying about the documentary if you're going to attack something do credible research and not quote people like John Lennon when you're talking about metal

    IDK if music makes you closer to evil or what not in 27 years of listening to metal and rap I have not came in contact with any such evil spirits that I know of.

    PS: Horrorcore rap is garbage

    You asked a question. We all answered. Don't get mad because it isn't the answer you liked. I know personally that I don't need to watch any documentary. The music I have heard doesn't feel right to me. Then people i see who listen tonight religiously let it consume their persona and every aspect of their lives. I distinctly remember some of my 'friends' at age of 9-10 being obsessed with rock and metal, and along with that was drugs, anger and sex. Does the music create those feelings and actions? Not in all cases. Are some people more open to the influences? Most definitely. I have found myself largely immune because of my own faith and convictions but I cannot say that for the people in my life.

    Cognitive neuroscience of music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Music is powerful. More powerful than a lot of people give it credit for. But the people producing and selling it know it as almost as potent if not more so than drugs.

    I wasn't attacking any particular group. I'm not even familiar with the names of those groups, because I don't listen to those kinds of sounds (it's not music to me). I'm not researching this subject, because I already know what bad sounds do to people. It's very emotionally disturbing to me when I pass by a car that's blasting that kind of garbage (that's what it is to me). It disturbs my whole entire being.

    I agree with Trekie, You asked for our opinions and now you're not happy with our replies. Not trying to be mean here...I'm just sayin'.

    Your question was: "How do people feel about metal music or actually any sort of music inviting evil spirits to you?"

    I'd watch it just to watch it, but I lurk on the forums at work and since I hack my phone a lot I can't run YouTube or flash well (Jellybean 4.1.2 :) )

    I also choose to avoid that type of music so I don't know any of the bands you mentioned. But I am aware of occult and pagan symbols and attire. A lot of popular artist overload their music with imagery and descriptions of Satan, witchcraft, sexual perversion, hate and violence and they make it sound "cool."

    Yes they do. I believe some also do it just to gauge the reactions of people.

    Me myself I wear band shirts not only as a way to personally express myself but also as a social experiment.

    Who would expect a person with a Cannibal Corpse shirt on to open a door for them and be polite? Take that society!

    You are exactly what I was alluding to with my post #7. Music is not inherently bad but when there is something that doesn't "feel right" to you, you will avoid it, that is your "spirit" guiding you, not your head and as a result you need not fear it. Those that can only use their head will have problems.

    Yes, I know how to shield my mind and spirit from those influences but unfortunately,as far as I can tell, most people don't. I do like those scriptures you have posted. The only thing is, again I speak from empirical data gathered through observation And conversing, most people are overwhelmed by a feeling of guilt and wrongness.

    I completely agree with the idea that if you do what your heart and spirit says is right then you are fine. Ironically, I live a kosher diet and ask my significant others to do the same, but I don't freak out if I show up to a dinner party and there's a ham on the table. I just ask for the salad ;-) (hopefully bacon bit free!)

    I'd like to know what church put this out. Music is entertainment. When I was younger our Pastor told the young that if you play metal music backwards there would be a message from Satan. Ah, the albums we destroyed trying to play them backwards. Fact is 'Pop' music is just as bad. It's all sex, hate and drugs. Why does no one complain? Simply because it's mainstream. Accepted. Just like going to church on Sunday. You allow negative entities, whatever they be, into your life if you yourself are negative. If the above was true, and metal music did indeed invite nasties into our lives, then how much more of an invitation is watching horror movies?

    I listen to classic, hard rock, oldies, and some metal. I agree with the posts listed. Go with your gut and heart...avoid music and situations that you are not comfortable with. If a particular song is glorifing the devil, play something else...I do. You can tell what songs do this. If I play a song like "The Devil Came Down From Georgia" or "Hyway to Hell", plays...I will say to myself, the devil is such a loser and move on. Besides, I don't like people telling me what is good for me based on their opinion.

    I don't like people using large fonts, and people telling me what's good for me.

    I heard something along those lines one day. I can't remember where or when though. Music can influence your behavior, but I don't think it has anything to do with evil spirits.
