Blabbermouth reports that Samong Traisattha (a.k.a. Avaejee), the 36-year-old bassist and vocalist for Thai black metal band Surrender of Divinity, is dead.
The victim of a murder last week.
The man was stabbed to death in his house January 8.
The deceased musician’s widow, Jaruvan Surapol, said a fan of her husband’s band was behind the killing.
She claimed the suspect visited the couple’s home “to have some shirts screen-printed and to have a drink.” After she put the couple’s child to bed, she returned to find her husband lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood.
Fuck. I bet I have some fans like that.
A Facebook user with the handle “Maleficent Meditation” has since taken credit for the crime and has posted gruesome photos of Samong’s body (which I was going to post, but decided not to; check them here, sicko) in addition to offering a detailed confession.
“I have intended to end my life since I was 25,” the suspect wrote, according to Blabbermouth. “Because I’ll die eventually, I want to drag down those who tarnish Satanism with me. But I refrained from killing women and children. In my view, I have more respect for devoted Buddhists, Christians and Muslims than those who call themselves Satanists without knowing anything about it. If I did not kill him, I’m sure he would be murdered by someone else later.”
A foot-long knife and a mobile phone belonging to the suspected killer were found at the crime scene.
For those unfamiliar, the band sounds like this:
