Lords of Chaos

“Welcome to Norway, a country known for 'seal clubbing and a very high suicide rate,' says guitarist Euronymous (Rory Culkin). It’s 1987, and thanks to his bandmates in Mayhem, his homeland will soon be infamous for a rash of church burnings and three deaths, all in the service of Norwegian Black Metal, a guttural, screaming barrage of rage that celebrates all things evil.

“Lords of Chaos director Jonas Åkerlund knows this scene. In the early ’80s, he co-founded the Swedish metal band Bathory, then made his way to America to shoot ground-breaking music videos for everyone from Rammstein and Prodigy to Lady Gaga and Madonna. He’s got range, and that comes through in this funny, occasionally frightening anthropological dramedy about how insecure boys hound each other to be really, really bad.

“Despite Åkerlund’s refusal to lionize the immature kids featured in his film, Lords of Chaos is tremendous fun. Caveat: one must be able to handle severed pig heads, cat torture, and casual Nazism. Åkerlund’s music videos established him as a whiz-bang technician, a skill he only unleashes in two terrifying montages. Lords of Chaos proves that he can also get great performances out of a young cast.” - Variety
