Here I tend to think that it's more often very confused people who are violent.
He described himself in oxymoronic terms, “a cynical existentialist, antihuman humanist, antisocial social darwinist [sic], realistic idealist and godlike atheist” on his YouTube user page Sturmgeist89.

If he is hearing voices, then it is probably schizophrania.
A possessed individual is typically characterized by having strange physical ailments or disfigurements; verbal outbursts, mostly obscene or sacrilegious in nature; violent behavior and vulgar behavior; bodily spasms and contortions; ability to speak languages never before studied; self-mutilation; "superhuman" abilities such as psychic abilities, abnormal strength, or an ability to perform behaviors out of the realm of human possibility such as levitation; cessation of normal bodily functions for periods of time, including breathing and heart beat; and a pronounced revulsion to symbols, places, people, objects, and ceremonies having any religious context. Other phenomena associated with the presence of a demon include an acrid stench; marked decrease in the temperature of the room which a possessed individual occupies; writing appearing out of nowhere; sounds and voices arising from nowhere; and objects moving on their own and destruction of objects in the room, without anyone having laid a hand upon them
A Biblical perspective of self mutilation
In the New Testament, we find cutting oneself was associated with someone who was possessed by demons (Mark 5:2-5).
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken
in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
Self-Mutilation was a characteristic behavior of someone possessed by evil spirits.
Jesus also dealt with a young boy who was possessed by a spirit that tried to destroy the body of its host. This story is found in the Gospel of Mark chapter 9 verses 17-22
Why is self- mutilation important to demonism?
1. The first and obvious answer is that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The cutting, the burning, tattooing and piercing could be considered vandalism to the temple.
I Cor.6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy
Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your
own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body,
and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2. Satan understands the importance of the shedding of the blood.
Heb.9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission. ( The self mutilation of the body becomes a
sacrifice to the devil.)
3. Self-Mutilation becomes a sign of ownership. Just like a cattle owner brands his cattle to prove his ownership, the devil wants his people to carry his brand for a life time. Yes a person can be saved and transfers the title of ones soul to Christ yet they still bare the devils scares while living on earth.
