Stangry Manchildren Send Myrkur Death Threats

You probably don’t need this, but just in case, here’s a friendly reminder: Don’t send people death threats. Even if you really don’t like their music.

Yesterday, Amalie Bruun, the woman behind black metal project Myrkur, posted an update to her band’s Facebook page:

I know that some of you have noticed you can no longer send me private messages. The reason for this is I am getting tired of the death threats and hate emails. Believe it or not but that s*** looses it’s charm after a while. I am of course sad that I then no longer can receive personal letters from supporters + fan-art in private messages, but please continue to post your beautiful pieces on this page or to my instagram @myrkurmyrkur

 

Uh… what happened here? Why are people sending Myrkur death threats? Has Amalie Bruun begun torturing adorable baby animals? Supporting ISIS? Saying mean things about Dimebag Darrell? No. Unlike several beloved metal musicians, she’s never even committed a heinous crime.

It just appears that a number of men are really, really angry that Myrkur exists and releases music. Why is that? What would drive American males to go out of their way to threaten the life of a female Danish musician? Is it because they think her music sucks? If so, I wonder how many death threats Steel Panther gets. Is it because Myrkur’s strain of black metal isn’t eeeeevil? If so, I wonder how many death threats Panopticon gets. Is it because she’s creating music in a genre that is traditionally known as a conservative boy’s club? You might be on to something!

Music fandom, especially metal, creates very tribalistic mindsets. People live and die by the bands they support and the acts they detest. Sometimes this devotion causes powerful factions that can push boundaries and spur creation. Sometimes it causes a poisonous pool of hatred. In the case of Myrkur, metal fandom has clearly affected the latter.

Full disclosure: I don’t like Myrkur’s music and on more than one occasion, I’ve made fun of an especially cringe-y video of Amalie Bruun playing guitar. That’s me being a petty dick who has to make fun of things on the Internet, and it’s not a good look. But her music isn’t the point. No matter how much I dislike ANYONE’S music, threatening a musician with bodily harm is fucking moronic. As much as we all deeply care about music and want to defend the genres we most love, no musician is conspiring to ruin metal. There are no bands that seek to destroy anyone’s scene. We should all keep an open mind and let people live. While we’re at it, we should celebrate the musicians we enjoy. And if threatening a stranger with death ever crosses our minds as a good idea, we should seek professional help immediately.

Black metal often attracts fans who voice strong opposition to censorship. If you are opposed to censorship, yet attempt to silence a musician by sending death threats, you are a hypocrite. If you consider yourself a fan of metal in this, the year of our lord 2016, and still prescribe to outdated ideals that no one but white men may participate, you are a pathetic relic of the past. These toxic attitudes can no longer be tolerated. If you send hate-filled messages to musicians that don’t ascribe to your perceived views of what metal should be, it is you that is ruining metal. And if by off-chance you happen to be the kind of person who DOES enjoy sending death threats, please let me know below so I may cyberbully the shit out of you.

            Good point.

    While this is stupid, it has nothing to do with her being a woman. Relapse has always steered clear of black metal, yet they’re pushing this shit hard. Which is strange, and may be because she’s a woman. She got a ton of press for whatever reason, and the music really isn’t that great. Anyway, a woman killing it in black metal currently is Sortilegia.

    • You really believe her being a woman has nothing to do with it?

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Possibly. It could be used as an excuse for hating her/music, etc. All I know is, I checked out the music, who was associated with the music, and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

        • Oh, her music is terrible, agreed.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            See, that should be the end of it. Another shitty band……next.

          • You’re absolutely right, it should be. Maybe go talk crap on the internet a bit, but death threats? As many shitty one person black metal bands there are that are out there, you have to admit that her being a woman definitely contributes to the volume of the death threats (the label/publicity don’t help either)

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I blame Relapse. That label has been shit for years and always (on purpose) avoided black metal. Yet, here’s this amazing release, that you have to check out. I call bullshit.

          • Don’t labels say that about every release?

          • Did they say that about the last Cynic album?

          • I saw quite a bit of hype from the label/band surrounding that release, so yes

          • I wonder what labels would say about an album that was just completely silent. “The most kvlt release of 2016 is simply NOTHING”. Order now and you get nothing with a t-shirt with nothing on it.

          • Let’s make a band right now and try it

          • I’m in. I’ll play nothing… How about you?

          • I’ll breathe on the album

          • Sexy, yet creepy. I’ll allow it.

          • what if we recorded me sleeping, then sped it up to fit in an hour?

          • Will their be farts?

          • Dubs

            It wouldn’t be a Sleep album without farts.

          • HA!

          • That’s part of the suspense! buy the album to find out!

          • Dagon

            Deluxe packaging comes with a smell bag.

          • Dubs

            Probably so. That’s the job of PR folks.

          • Primitive Man is about the only band on that label I get excited about anymore. I think Weapon was the last black metal band on that label and look where that got them…. Broke up.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, I was still surprised they signed them.

          • Really odd. I still think their best album is From the Devil’s Tomb though.

          • Dubs

            I’m trying to understand your point here. You’re saying the death threats are entirely because the label pushed a release that’s crappy (which is true) rather than anything else?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I’m done talking about a shit band. Forget it.

          • Dubs

            Just trying to understand 😉

          • Maik Beninton™

            I think what he’s saying is that it backfired on her, in the worst case.

          • Correct. Just shitty humans being shitty is all.

            What they need is some PB&J in their life.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Damn Tyree, you be spitting mad truth today.

          • Unless you have a peanut allergy, PB&J sandwiches solve most of the worlds issues. That and nuclear warfare.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            That makes too much sense.

    Shit like this makes me embarrassed to be a white male, and usually I’m pretty good at not taking on unnecessary guilt.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      What’s being white have to do with it?

      • Guacamole Jim

        Ah, I assumed when I read this and she referenced the death threats coming from “American men” that she was referring to a predominantly Caucasian demographic. Maybe it was an incorrect assumption to make, but given that A) most Americans are “non-hispanic white” and B) heavy metal is predominantly white/male, I feel I’m a bit justified.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Sounds like stereotyping to me.

          • In this case it’s definitely not.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Does so.

          • Guacamole Jim

            I’m not quite following what you’re saying. How is this stereotyping? Would it have been better if I’d just said “male,” not “white male,” knowing full well that it’s basically impossible for the demographic of people threatening this lady to be less than 50% white?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Just tired of the white guilt shit. All of humanity is fucking garbage, why feel guilty? We’ll all be dead soon.

          • I’m with you on that one.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            Human guilt is more suitable.

          • Guacamole Jim

            I was actually articulating an empathy for this woman, not saying you or any other white male ought to feel ashamed for who you are. That’s something you garnered all on your own.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

          Could be any demographic of asshole male with a dick and nothing better to do. But, yeah, most likely, it’s white males thinking that Trump is a great (YUGE!) idea.
          More so would be the blatant and Cro-mag misogyny at play on their part, rather than race. I doubt many white power folks are going after a Dane other than the fact she’s female.

      • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

        Being white is a second hand emotiooooooooon.

      • Cos American White guys are the whiniest people on Earth? Wild guess.

            Oddly enough, I didn’t hear a ton about Star Wars, and that movie didn’t even have a good white male character in it!

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            A little of it was about religion, but more so about people being offended. The full quote:

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Im offended that people are offended

          • also, i think every human being needs to examine why he/she believes in a thing, entertain the possibility that he/she was simply born into a particular faith. now if said person considers the whole “lottery” aspect of that particular faith and still chooses to remain a member, that’s totally all right. but don’t tell people of a different faith that they are “going to hell” just because of geography, family history, etc.

          • Even at it’s most benign, religion separates people into those who believe, and those who don’t.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            Not really. I’ve been atheist since 12 (23 years now), and most religious people treat me fine, whether if be Muslim, Jew, Christian, Pagan, and whatever factions. It’s the people who get shovey about it that I have a problem with, especially when it becomes social and intrudes on other people’s rights. Sure, I think that religious people are Dungeons And Dragons fanatics gone wrong and writ large, but most of them don’t push it on you or I. For everything metal bands say against Christianity, for example,not many metal bands are talking about how they sponsor homeless shelters, food drives, and free coats, clothes and help for the homeless. And almost no one heard about how Muslims in Kenya shieled Christians when terrorists threatened to kill them (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/12/22/muslims-help-non-muslims-when-extremists-attack-bus-kenya/77765396/).

          • If you had been a Metalhead in the 80s, you’d feel differently. I’ve had to testify UNDER OATH that I was not a devil-worshipper because I listened to Metal. I’ve had many religious people, mostly Christians, tell me that I was scum and was going to Hell because of how I looked and the music I listened to. Sorry, but nope.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            Growing up, yeah, had that too, mostly from family I haven’t talked to in who knows how long.
            Lol, I grew up in the 80’s, but I was 9 when 1990 rolled around, and not even in America before then. :-p

          • In 1990 I was 23 so there’s just a wee bit of a difference.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            Lol, I know.

          • I have no issues with people who speak up about things that actually matter such as equal marriage rights and such as long as they back it up with real world action, but this is nothing but a bunch of babies who are upset that a girl has crashed their clubhouse.

          • They aren’t much better, but they’re better. I wouldn’t be nearly as annoyed and embarrassed by (ugh) Hillary Clinton as President than Trump.
            Also, no President can enact most of their agenda without a Congress that’ll work with them. As long as the GOP hold it, the best they can do is stop the bleeding, so to speak.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            And Trump has alienated so much of the GOP, I doubt he could get his agenda passed. He forgets that there’s 3 parts to government, and looks at it like Stalin and his Pavlovian dog.

          • Most people don’t understand how Gov’t works. That’s why it’s so easy to exploit their ignorance and turn it into fear, and also makes it easy to point the finger at whomever happens to be President and say “That’s the bad guy!”.

            I don’t have an issue with anyone believing in something. My issue is when people disagree, they get attacked for having a different opinion. Which is the MO of many of these people. Not everyone shares the same opinion. This doesn’t give anyone the right to attack them. You and me have had t agree to disagree a few times. We just have different opinions than each other. But we didn’t attack each other and get our friends to join in.

          • Yes, exactly. Having thoughts and opinions is not a crime or an issue at all. Many people get ‘tolerance’ and ‘acceptance’ mixed up. You don’t have to like or agree with someone to support their right to live their life freely.

            This is what freedom is about. Thee right to think, believe and live the way you want. I think religion is the greatest plague mankind has ever known. But at the same time, I don’t tell anyone not to believe in what ever make believe friend they want.

          • Its been years since I’ve been to that site.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            You’re not missing much.

          • That’s what I figured.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            Outside of TOH, I rarely ever check out other metal blogs. I liked Terrorizer for a while, until I saw the forums (look at your own peril. Plenty of kvlt assholes and pics of fecal porn ensues)

          • I check some others for more of the underground black metal news and one forum in particular that is frowned upon here.

          • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

            For black metal, I mostly go for your picks and the Atmospheric Black Metal page on Youtube.

          • I go there for mainstream Rock/Metal news.

          I still can’t believe the actor playing the Karate Kid was 22 when they shot it. He barely looked the 17 or so he was supposed to be.

  • BobLoblaw

    I wonder if the articles on NPR had anything to do with the feeding frenzy of trolls.

    • Lots of male metal bands get covered by NPR though. As far as I can recall, none of them get death threats.

      • BobLoblaw

        Certainly not defending anything. I honestly dont understand why shes been targeted. People like Angela Gassow, Melanie Mongeon and Sally Gates are well know and respected. As far as I know Ihriel hasnt recieved this level of hate so it leaves me wondering if that level of exposure of an obscure genre had anything to do with it. The only black metal related NPR articles (aside from maybe top ten AOTY write ups) are about Myrkur.

      • Lots of angry guys of all types read NPR though.

  • Capra Hircus Hubertus

    Sending death-threats like is the least Satan thing to do. What a dissapointment.

  • White Men Children – that’s the source of all this. Most normal people just ignore the music they don’t like and move on, but these dingbats think they’re special.

  • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED
  • In our 185 years, we have never had a female black metal musician.
    Um, but that seems to be the way the wind is blowing these days.
    After all, we have female singers, female motorists.

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays
  • In a similar vein, some of my Twitter friends(i.e. we follow each other) are somewhat famous women pro wrestlers. Some of the messages and pics they get sent EVERY FUCKING DAY are literally insane. Here’s a Tumblr with just a sample.

  • I love black metal, and yes there are some shitty people in the genre (Lots actually); There are shitty people everywhere. I’m not afraid to say that I listen to some bands with some very extreme points of views. There are even NSBM bands that I listen too. To be completely honest though I don’t listen to these bands because I necessarily relate to the bands views. No, I listen to it because I like the music. I would never threated to kill someone because I don’t like them or because they have a view that I’m not on board with. I just like evil sounding music is all. I think most people out there can say the same that listen to and appreciate to black metal. Like most any genre of things there are going to be shit heads that make a bad name. If I said Hip-Hop carries some shitty people would I be called racist since most rappers are black?

    • This isn’t a Metal issue. This is about whiny brats who have no social skills and can’t get laid so they take it out on a convenient target. That’s all.

      • Well, men who listen to black metal was brought up, so I figured I’d make my own little point. The post could have just said “Band gets threatened because girl, band still sucks, The End.”

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Stupid manchildren.

  • Dagon

    I’m not sure if being a woman was the decisive factor behind death threats.

    I wonder if Deafheaven got any threats. Or Liturgy for that matter.

    Death threats are dumb.

    • I think it’s a combination of success and being a woman. For a lot of insecure people, that’s an unacceptable combination.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        “Any woman who likes (or plays) black metal is a poseur whore clearly doing it for male attention only.”

    • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

      Or BAAbymetal. I’d imagine they’ve gotten more than a few if this is the case.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    I bet they aren’t even good “I’m going to drop a fridge on your head from the Moon” style death threats.

  • Gary the Dairy Fairy

    I’m sure their mothers are so proud of them.

  • Eliza

    I don’t care for Myrkur’s music, but this is beyond sick. I can’t believe that there are some people out there that hate the idea that women can get into metal just like men.

    • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

      Their heads would explode if they found out about Doro.

      • Eliza

        Now that’s a female metal musician I like. She’s just so badass.

        • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

          And hasn’t aged a day in over 25 years.

          • Eliza

            Truly admirable!

  • I don’t care for her music but you never send anyone death threats (unless of course they are newly reborn Mecha-Hitler).

  • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom
  • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom

    Much to the chagran of the MRA, I went out and Redbox’d (you know, that thing for schmucks like me that’ve been too lazy to pay the extra $10 a month my roomie’s offering for Netflix in my room) ‘Fury Road’. Heard enough about it on here, and it better be good!

  • Paris Hilton

    Black metal fans acting like immature, closed-minded dickheads? No way! This story has gotta be fake.

  • Heroic Nipple Farts Of Doom
  • Phoenix of the House Tendies

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Any of the females in my crew (and I have quite a few) would stomp on the tiny balls of these MRA wieners and feed them their own shit if they dared tried to tell them women don’t belong in metal.

    Besides, death threats are so blase. If you hate a band, you spam the shit out of their Facebook page with memes like a normal internet dweller.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      MRA are keyboard warriors of the lowest order.

  • xengineofdeathx

    I don’t even dislike her music that much, it’s ok. I think a lot of the people who are sending these threats probably have orange cheeto dust-covered tits, and can’t do 10 pushups. At one time I would say people should not give a fuck, because it’s the internet, but now if someone doesn’t like you on social media, they find a way to throw up all your personal information; then anyone crazy enough to actually follow through with a violent threat has whatever they need.

    It’s sad and disgusting to me that this lack of accountability ( and getting your ass whipped for being a dick head) is so prevalent in our culture now, and makes it so much easier for people to be terrible. Maybe dinosaurs need to come back to life so we can start over. Fuck people.

    • That lack of accountability is so frustrating to me. It’s so easy to just not be a raging dickhead, yet some folks go for it like it’s their full-time job.

      • xengineofdeathx

        Yeah man, and that kind of dickheadedness is something that has to be cultivated and honed to a razor’s edge, it doesn’t seem natural.
