Jonas Åkerlund 's ‘Lords of Chaos’

Set in 1987, Lords of Chaos chronicles the birth of Mayhem, the notorious Norwegian black metal band that wore corpse paint, burned down churches and was involved in brutal murders. Rory Culkin stars as the group’s leader, Euronymous, who meets his match in Varg (Emory Cohen), a disturbed young man with a taste for extreme violence.

The film is adapted from the Feral House book by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind.

“It starts out where music is everything. Then before you know it you run your own record shop and label, you represent bands, you do to tours … and you burn down churches and you kill people.” - Jonas Åkerlund
