Fan kills black metal singer for not being Satanic enough


I’m going to hell for this, but it’s an observation, not a recommendation: black metal was a lot better when it was the Wild West, with bodies cropping up everywhere, churches aflame, and musicians stockpiling paramilitary gear.

Then it got all civilized — about the same time it became sociable and profitable — and immediately descended to the same repetitive and soulless level as all other music that has been socially accepted.

For this reason, while I’m not going to cheer the acts involved (and no one accountable can, because we are civilized), I have to admit a brief flicker of something — nostalgia? hope? — crossed my nerve net as I read in this morning’s virtual paper about the self-proclaimed Satanist who killed the singer of a Thai metal band, Surrender of Divinity.

Surrender of Divinity have released a number of underground efforts to some acclaim, culminating in a split with Finnish war/noise metal cult Archgoat. Prices on Surrender of Divinity merch on eBay have already spiked in response, for you cynics.

The alleged killer, Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn, was apparently a fan of Surrender of Divinity when he reportedly met with the band’s vocalist, Samong Traisattha, for some beers at the latter’s home. When Mr. Samong’s wife returned to check on the two several hours after the gathering began, she found her husband dead from multiple deep knife trauma wounds.

Posting on Facebook as Maleficient Meditation, Mr. Prakarn posted pictures of the gory scene of the killing and made a series of references to the sacral nature of his act:

“I have intended to end my life since I was 25. Because I’ll die eventually, I want to drag down those who tarnish Satanism with me. But I refrained from killing women and children,” he wrote.

“In my view, I have more respect for devoted Buddhists, Christians and Muslims than those who call themselves Satanists without knowing anything about it,” he wrote. “If I did not kill him, I’m sure he would be murdered by someone else later.”

“Maleficent Meditation” concluded that people who do not have faith in Satan should not call themselves Satanists. He also said he hoped he would be with Satan after he died.

He had previously mostly posted black metal news, snippets of Satanist information, and kitty pictures.

    He also takes selfies while riding in the car.

    Just another attention-whoring little fag, like most black metal kids.

      So true. I bet he does the frog face and “evil” stance photos that always look hilarious and 100% NOT scary.

    Surely killing underground musicians will bring back the olden days of underground metal. After all who cares about the music? It should be all about ideology.

    How in the world is “refraining from killing women and children” Satanic? I guess Satanism, like everything else, is open to the interpretation of the participant.

  5. Tomas says:

    well at least he didn’t post pics of slaughtered cats in the name of Satan. I think anyone preaching any kind of religion should be ready for any kind of retaliation. Every type of religion has made attempts on killing other types and its acolytes. I feel sorry for anyone who was close to this guy or knew him but really we all should live by the rules of nature which could be said that only the strongest survive(for lack of better words). Each turn of the page holds a certain level of uncertainty and all of our days will come by one means or another.

    This is a confession from the mouth of a dog backbiting. His Facebook ***This is status updated from murderer who killed Avaejee of Surrender Of Divinity*** (Translated version for all oversea friends)


    Just had no many thing of reason why I murdered, I intend to commit suicide as I am 25 years old, It’s a matter that I’ll die certainly So, I want to drag together a 1-2 corpses of those who lead attitude of Satanism to stain! And the true Satan answered me to agreed (I am who did meditation everyday 30-60 minutes and gazing in the mirror 30-60 minutes included) but I refrain to kill his wife and his kids, Atleast, to made him know that ‘Satan’ is not a toys that you can play anywhere and hail upon stage by without the true faith. If you didn’t true believe in Satan and no religions but take Satan to be ‘symbol’ to blaspheme another religions then you can call yourself to be anything, don’t fucking call yourself ‘Satanic’ and also said ‘don’t believe in Satan but I believe in myself’ SHIT!… Poser to blame all another religions which the true Satanist will not blame another religions like a bullshit because of my view is Buddha, Christian, Muslim that believe in their own way, I think they rather be respect more than posers that call oneself ‘Satanist’ but without any fucking knowledge. It seems like a trendy children and I believe for sure that if I didn’t kill, someday he’ll be killed by Buddhist, Christian or Muslim certainly.

    This murder by first time, I intend to kill around 20-30 corpses but since inconvenience and I am only one who plan to kill So, I decided to kill as enough as possible and the news posted wrongly that I am the fan of Surrender Of Divinity, I’d like to say nowadays I’m not the fan of this shit band anymore and don’t take this case to be with ‘John Lennon’ murder, fucking different…and fucking polices marks this murder is came from drinking and drunk, I’d like to say it’s not true because of I INTEND TO KILL HIM ESPECIALLY. I hided my knife into a jacket and sham to bring my t-shirt for painting by his wife and try him to join drinking. That’s set up my way to wait he unguarded and came to a night.

    I murdered fucking Avaejee, stabbed by a knife which a news posted wrong that I stabbed 3 times but the truth is stabbed 30 times for sure and didn’t behead from behind, I confront him, bring a knife to multiple stabbed his front of neck, no slash nor wipe, stabbed every lesions and watching him scrabble, clamber like a dog and raised a hands asking life. He said ‘NO’ it’s breath without voice with splattered blood out follow his speak but I stabbed again at his neck and his skull again and again (sometime knife is deep in skull and hard to pull off) I just wonder that murder people by knife is got a flavor, exciting, feeling more than shooting by gun. When I finished, I’m back to did meditation at the rent hotel easily and for sure…I’M NOT SORRY WHAT I’VE DONE!

    All his friends or his family maybe cursing me now but I thought this death is suitable for the poser like him already. Above all, Lord Satan is not a toys, If you haven’t true believe, don’t call oneself to be Satanist!!!!! I’m not person like brutal, cool, gangster louder but silence, cold blood, savagery…I have it certainly

    My life after death is no saying anymore unless I wish I can be in the land of devil and spend a time after death to do meditation continually regardless of 10 years 100 years or 1000 years on my way.

    Don’t comment or like this status, I only just want to inform a little bit and thanks for reading. Wish everyone whoever read this, be faith on own way by no fool oneself, doing what you must, see you again if we can live in the same dimension after death



    I guess nobody cares if Surrender of Serenity’s music is any good.

    I think their first album is quite enjoyable. Reminds me of a more blasting version of early Gorgoroth with a little Ancient thrown into the mix. What do you guys think about this band’s music??
