Lords of Chaos rocks your speakers in this blu ray release from Arrow ( @arrowfilmsvideo ) #movies

Oslo. Norway. The early 1990s. A new, uncompromising style of heavy metal explodes onto the underground – True Norwegian Black Metal! Blasting and brutal yet also majestic, this subgenre achieves worldwide infamy through the extraordinary achievements of its musicians and the suicides, murders and church burnings that come to define the scene…

Seventeen-year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) longs to escape his idyllic middle-class life. Enlisting a clique of fanatical youths – Necrobutcher, Hellhammer and Dead (Jack Kilmer) – he forms the most evil band in the world… Mayhem. The band soon achieve notoriety for their extreme live shows and the morbid cult that surround them, but the dark world Euronymous has created degenerates into a mire of murder and arson when an arch-rivalry with Varg (Emory Cohen), of the band Burzum, spirals out of control…

A thrilling true-crime horror film that weaves together rock ‘n’ roll delinquency, death and betrayal, Lords of Chaos is by turns shocking, funny and tragic with a great indie cinematic feel to the film and the performances. Its hardly as quirky as This Is Spinal Tap but Lords Of Chaos could easily be a distant cousin of the rockumentary classic.

Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund renders the world of black metal with immense detail whilst also coaxing superb performances from his young cast who most certainly havent appeared in roles like this before. Rory Culkin might well be known for more mainstream films such as Scream 4, Signs and Richie Rich, but Lords of Chaos will open up a whole new world for him. It also should go without saying (even though im going to type it) that if you arent a fan of heavy metal music then you might want to stay away from this film, as the soundtrack is most definately of the ear bleeding variety so for metal fans. You are gonna love it. Now love it up to 11………
