Death Angel drummer Will Carroll damn near died from COVID-19. Carroll was hospitalized for two weeks, was in a coma, and had "the equivalent of 5 pounds of beer" pumped from his lungs. He was recently sent home and is still recovering. Carroll recently recounted his horrendous experience to Decibel, saying he doesn't even recall going to the hospital.

"About three days after I was home. My fiancee said I looked and sounded terrible. She said I was wheezing in my sleep and struggling to breathe. That’s the last thing I remember. I don’t remember the ambulance ride or getting to the hospital. The next thing I remember is waking up after a 12-day coma with tubes stuck in me and machines all around. I didn’t even know I was in San Francisco."

Carroll also discussed being in a coma.

"I don’t believe in Bigfoot and I’m not an ambulance chaser. I’m not a super-spiritual guy. I hardly believe in any of that stuff but I did have some out of body experiences. I went to hell and Satan was a woman and I was being punished for sloth. I was this giant obese Jabba The Hut type creature. I was vomiting blood and kept on vomiting blood until I had a heart attack which is kind of weird because I had heart failure during my coma. I remember rising up from Hell and floating up above my body and once I got to heaven it was horrifying there, too. It was like a Roman orgy and the angels were scarier than the demons. I shot back down to earth and I was with some friends in a nightclub and I didn’t know why I was there. That’s the last thing I remember until I woke up. My first words to the nurse were: “Am I still in hell?” She just ignored it. As I said, I never believed in anything like that but I did see myself from above."

He later added that he was the first one in the hospital to survive a COVID-19 coma, and is currently undergoing physical therapy to properly walk again. Carroll said the experience has made him rethink his lifestyle.

"Across the board. My days of heavy drinking are over. I might have an occasional glass of wine or Irish cider but as far as doing ten shots a night those days are over. Smoking, including smoking weed, is over too. I’ll still take some edibles but smoking is over. I’m eating healthier and I’ve lost a good amount of weight. That’s one good thing about being in a coma – you will lose weight! (laughs). I started partying when I was 16 years old so it’s been a 36-year ride of partying almost every day. It was fun but I already don’t miss it. I don’t miss drinking. I miss pizza but I don’t miss drinking or smoking and won’t be going back to that lifestyle."
