Top 10 Worst Crimes Committed by Black Metal Musicians
4. Silencer's Nattramn Attacks 5-year-old with Axe
This next crime has been widely debated as to whether it is fact or a black metal urban legend. Nattramn of Swedish black metal outfit, Silencer, has been the subject of many rumors, such as cutting off his own hands during a recording, only to personally sew pig's feet onto his bloody stumps. That rumor was created by the circulation of this photo (to the right) which is one of the only known photographs of Nattramn – his face has never been revealed. This story may not be as bizarre as the last one, but it's much more disturbing. Allegedly, Nattramn randomly drove an axe into the skull of a 5-year-old girl in 2001, failing to kill her by mere millimeters. As police arrived on the scene, he attempted to commit suicide-by-cop by shouting "Kill me! Kill me!" with the axe still in his hands. The cops distracted Nattramn using police dogs while another officer snuck up behind the crazed musician and brought him down. Nattramn was committed to the Växjö Psychiatric Ward, where he stayed for the next 5 years. Nattramn was offered to write and record music as therapy and rehabilitation during one year – a project he named Diagnose: Lebensgefahr.
The label Humani Animali Liberati claims to be the central hub of all things Nattramn, stating:

HAL claims that Nattramn will be releasing a book called Grishjärta or "Pig's Heart," in the near future, which will consist of poetry, short texts and lyrics, both in Swedish and English and goes back as early as 1994 until today. Additionally, each copy will be personally signed by Nattramn accompanied with photographs of the infamous musician.
