HOTSHOTS Episode #20- Why Satanic Panic Targeted Heavy Metal with Derek Solomos

Join Derek and I as we talk 80s evangelist propaganda, the real-world consequences of mass delusion, and watching as satanic panic returns today.




Join Derek Solomos and I as we discuss satanic panic's origins and its resurgence, why rock music is so often linked to the occult, and I rant about the West Memphis 3.


Derek Solomos is a heavy metal/alt-rock guitarist based in Toronto.


You can find his bands Korrosive (@korrosivethrash) and The Slime (@theslimehardcore) on all streaming services, and Derek on Instagram under @derekdmoney98.
