Surrender Of Divinity Frontman Murdered By Fan

As reported by the Bangkok Post and Death Metal Underground, a self-styled Satanist posted on his Facebook page that he was the one who murdered Samong 'Avejee' Traisattha, bassist/vocalist of Thailand black metal band Surrender Of Divinity.

Jaruvan Surapol, 34, the musician's wife, told police that the killer was Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn, a fan of her husband's band. Prakarn had gone to the singer's house on Wednesday night to screen print some shirts and have a few beers. After the wife had put her child to bed, she went to check on her husband and encountered him stabbed over thirty times. Prakarn then posted the following litany on Facebook:

"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' (Prakarn's FB name) 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 also uploaded photos of the grisly crime scene to his timeline.

Surrender Of Divinity issued the following statement on its band page:

"Avajee, our Black Vomitor/Bass Thunder and most importantly our blood-brother has passed away yesterday by a cruel murderer. No words can express about this lost in our horde. Have a rest down there brother! May our blackest flames blazing bright forever!"

If he knew anything about anything maybe he would have realized how f***ing retarded satanism is in the first place. Making us metal folk look bad. Oh no you didn't.

Guy murders a member of a BM band he is a fan of, then goes on a fb rant that he has more respect for other religions including christianity than satanism.
That makes a ton of sense.
