Really? You "kill -9"ed the process, it failed to stop and you're
blaming systemd? I know systemd is the current whipping-boy but that
seems harsh to me.

First of all, see why mpd is unresponsive (it may be in the 'D' state,
which usually indicates that it's waiting for I/O - if that's the case,
the process doesn't even notice the kill signal). If you can't kill it,
then don't expect systemd to be able to, either.
