Murmaider is a song by Dethklok.

History Edit

The song was recorded deep within the Mariana Trench for the album Dethwater. When Dethklok showed the song to producer Dick "Magic Ears" Knubbler, he was literally blown away by the song.

Dethklok eventually wrote a sequel to Murmaider called "Murmaider II: The Water God". It was also recorded in the Mariana Trench. Both songs were put onto Dethwater.

While Murmaider was released on The Dethalbum, Murmaider II was not. This is because in real life, Murmaider II was written after Season 1 finished. Instead, it was released on the Dethalbum II.

In 2009, the song was included in the video game Brütal Legend.

It's so cold they all know
What you've done, you can't run
Vengeance is the law for thee
A thousand leagues below the sea

You've been tracked, you've been seen
Murdering the next kin
Ate their hearts,drank their blood
Washed your fins in blackened mud
Now you swim try to hide
Heart beats faster from inside
Thought it was a big charade
Your life was ended by mermaids

Music video Edit

Mermaider Murmaider Official Music Video - Dethklok03:18

Mermaider Murmaider Official Music Video - Dethklok

A music video was made, and released with the Season 2 DVD of Metalocalypse.

The story's protagonists are multiple killer mermaids. The video starts off with the mermaids attacking a cluster of fish eggs guarded by centaur-like beings with crablike legs. The mermaids kill all of the guards and destroy the eggs, then move on. As they are swimming, the antagonist, a red-skinned mermaid, arrives and murders all of them except for a young child. The video then cuts to Dethklok performing the song in water tanks similar to the one Toki was put into. Later, it goes back to the sole surviving mermaid, now an adult, who arrives and does battle with the red-skinned mermaid.

The video puts emphasis on the numerous weapons/emotions listed in the lyrics that Nathan says "check" after.

The video for Murmaider was also released with the deluxe edition of the Dethalbum II. It was also released onto Dethklok's official YouTube channel; however, it, along with the video for "Thunderhorse", was taken off due to nudity, as the mermaids in the video are all topless, although it is still available for viewing on YouTube due to other users uploading the video.

In the same style as its predecessor, the video is about Batman saving Aquaman from the Little Mermaid and SpongeBob SquarePants.
