Official Statement to the Press
Today, a certain minority of fans of Dethklok chose to express their enthusiasm about the new album's release in a tragic and unprecedented manner. This was not our intention. It is our wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the victims of these actions. Actions which we do not condone, endorse, or encourage in any way. These individuals are not affiliated with Dethklok or the company as a whole. They do not represent any of the band's members, employees, or any other entities associated with the company.
We urge the media and the press to view these acts as individual and random, and not a widespread epidemic. The music is not dangerous. It is created simply to be enjoyed, like all music. And as with anything created, there will always be a few who would perceive within it a message that simply does not exist, and take that to the extreme. With the internet these false ideas can be exchanged and mutated even further, made larger than it would seem to be possible.
We hope these matters are resolved quickly by the proper authorities, and that those few who have taken it upon themselves to act out in this way receive the help they need.
