In the 1930s, Willie Cole was recording on an acetate at Moonrise Studios, before the Devil returned to reclaim his soul, killing him. In doing this, its voice was recorded on to the acetate. Marcus Mooney discovered this and had the disc embedded in a wall of the recording studio.
Around 80 years later, Jasmine Fell uncovered the acetate and took it back to a recording studio to perform a spectral analysis on it. Bernie Reed, despite strict instruction, played it and it burnt off his ears, also forcing him to stab himself. Jasmine, watching Bernie die, took it back to her own place and hid it within her collection. Whilst there, her daughter Julilah found it and began to play it. Before she could be harmed, her parents took it off and wrapped it back up. However, Papa Midnite caught wind of the acetate, sending his men to retrieve it. Rather than returning it back to him, they took it to a club to play it, killing nearly everyone inside. Ambitious, they then took it to a radio station. Though hurting everyone inside the station, they were unable to broadcast the music fully, and were damned to Hell along with the acetate by John Constantine, after he harnessed the acerate's dark magic to open a momentary rift to Hell.
