"You don't even KNOW what crazy even looks like!"- Magnus Hammersmith
Magnus Hammersmith was the original rhythm guitarist of Dethklok.
He was kicked out of Dethklok due to his arrogance. When Nathan described him as "acting crazy" he simply stated Nathan didn't know what "crazy" meant. Afterwards, it was believed that he assumed a more calm, cold personality, however, it was revealed that Magnus was hiding his true intentions. It is also believed that this outburst was so infamous, that even Dr. Rockso learned of it.
During practice he screamed at Pickles for "making the drum pattern his own." Shortly afterwards, Magnus was involved in an altercation with Nathan Explosion where he, after being told that the band wasn't just his and that he was "acting crazy", proceeded to stab Nathan, who retaliated by punching him in the face and blinding Magnus in one eye. Later the same night Nathan was woken up by Pickles saying "You better come and check this out", who reveals that the band room and instruments had been destroyed along with "Revenge is Coming" scrawled on one of the walls.
Magnus makes an appearance in the episode Dethcamp where, in an ironic twist, he ends up helping Toki at Rock-a-Rooni Fantasy Camp where he is being bullied by Ludwig, one of the campers. After Toki passes out due to Ludwig forcefully shoving cake into his mouth (Toki is revealed to be diabetic in the episode Skwisklok), Magnus injects Toki with a shot of insulin to revive him. After this, it appears that Dethklok (Pickles and Toki at least) has a newfound mutual respect for him after Magnus' deed.
However, the season 4 episode Breakup Klok reveals that he was fooling Toki and he is actually working with The Revengencers plotting revenge (whether or not he joined willingly is unknown given the mind control tactics Revengencers is infamous for). In season 4 episode "Church of The Black Klok", Dr. Rockso tries to warn Toki about Magnus' true nature (along with the real reason why Magnus was thrown out of Dethklok), but Toki disregards him. Magnus later betrays Toki by stabbing him in the back while shouting "Revenge has come!" It is unknown whether or not Magnus was successful in killing Toki however (as the High Priest of the Black Klok believes Toki to have survived).
- In Dethcamp, he is described by the narrator as "the man who stands behind shadows".
- In creating an issue out of Pickles "making the drum solo his own", Magnus displayed a high desire of wanting a creative input in the process. This is a contrast to Toki's initial response to the same matter, as Toki wanted no creative input what so ever.
