Erika Spawn (Victoria Hopkins) and her band are - at least originally - the typical provocative metal band the outraged media helped to hype even though, even though there wasn't anything essentially "new" or provocative about them. But a bit of Satanist symbolism, violent imagery in the lyrics, and of course an offensive (though quite easy on the eye) media persona make them an act that's pushed far further by their haters than any mapped out publicity campaign ever could (though quite a bit of the controversy about them is the basis of their publicity). The biggest critic of Erika Spawn within the industry is actually Robin Harris (Scott Thomas), cleancut former boyband-boy, whose love ballads essentially promote conservative values.

A few weeks back, Erika Spawn has picked up a groupie, Stef (Lucy Dunn), who is a bit of a mystery because while she seems to be really drawn to Erika in every way possible, she totally closes up to her (or anyone else for that matter) sexually, though Erika would be interested. Nevertheless, she and the band adopt her as their mascot. Eventually, Erika finds out that Stef was once Robin Harris's groupie, and while she thinks nothing of it other than teasing her a bit with it, Stef grows increasingly weird after admitting this to Erika ... until she stabs her live on stage.

Erika's life can be saved, and Stef is instantly institutionalized ... and while Erika's away in hospital, a shooting in a nightclub takes place that is indirectly blamed on her, just because one of the shooters was wearing her band T-shirt. Robin Harris only uses that to step up his cruzade against Erika and bands like hers. However, when Erika's out of hospital, she blames her own stabbing not on Stef but on Robin Harris, and her researches into the occult prove her right ... though only in her eyes. But Erika isn't someone to just put the blame on someone, she acts on this ... and creates utter chaos in the process ...

 

The Devil's Music is a rather fascinating film, as it successfully blends murder mystery, Satanic horror, traces of torture porn, and of all things music mockumentary and creates a rather tense and suspenseful piece of entertainment. Sure, the film might be mostly talking heads, but it's really got a well-structured story to tell, and is carried by a good cast that really looks and acts their roles, and a directorial effort that brings the right look, but also the right balance between subtlety and sensationalism the genre mix suggests to the subject matter - all of which results quite simply in a pretty good movie!
