Black Metal Movie ‘Lords Of Chaos’ Has A New Poster


Lords Of Chaos‘, the film adaptation of the 1998 black metal book ‘Lords Of Chaos‘, has a new official poster that can be seen below. The book and film recall the more violent seminal days of the black metal scene, focusing in particular on Mayhem.

That groups turbulent early career saw their vocalist Dead take his own life, while former bassist Varg Vikernes stabbed guitarist Øystein ‘Euronymous’ Aarseth to death. Going by the poster, the film will also tackle the various church burnings Burzum‘s Varg Vikernes was convicted of back in the ’90s as well.

Jonas Åkerlund (who played drums for Bathory) directed the feature, which will screen at the ‘Sundance Film Festival‘ later this month. Sigur Rós contributed music to the film, which stars Rory Culkin (‘Scream 4‘), Sky Ferreira and more. Notably the film doesn’t have the support of Mayhem bassist Necrobutcher.

An early look at the film previously came via Metallica‘s “ManUNkind” music video—also directed by Åkerlund.
