Lords of Chaos screening at the Triskel Arts Centre, Ireland

9th November 2018

A gruesome tale of suicide, arson, murder, satanism, corpsepaint and extreme music. What could be more terrifying? Maybe that it actually happened in Norway in the early nineties. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, and based on the nonfiction book of the same name, 'Lords of Chaos' hurls us into black metal year zero with the formation of the legendary band Mayhem, and its opportunistic founder Øystein ‘Euronymous’ Aarseth (Rory Culkin), his mission: to sell music via any exploitative means. However, when his new friend Varg Vickernes (Emory Cohen) starts to believe his rhetoric, things quickly head towards a burning, bloody climax.
