LORDS OF CHAOS Hobart Screening Announced and Extra Melbourne Session Added!

30 January 2019

Following last week’s announcement of our LORDS OF CHAOS One Night Only screenings across Australia and New Zealand on Friday February 22, we are pleased to reveal that we’ve locked-in a screening at the State Cinema in Hobart and added an extra session at Cinema Nova in Melbourne.

Hardcore metal fans will no doubt already be familiar with the book that chronicled a series of shocking crimes that shook Norway in the early 1990s, committed by the founders of the black metal bands MAYHEM and BURZUM.

Combining a realistic look at the oft-neglected world of metal, a beautiful Norwegian setting, the blackest of black humour and brutally visceral scenes of violence, LORDS OF CHAOS may be the rare film that is truly, uniquely ‘black metal’.

Director Jonas Åkerlund, former drummer for pioneering 80s black metal band BATHORY is uniquely placed to portray the realities of being in a black metal band. Despite the grim subject matter, Åkerlund manages to infuse the film with much heart and humour.

Åkerlund says of the release: “LORDS OF CHAOS is a coming of age story about a highly ambitious black metal band that rocked Europe with endless scandals, murders, and arson before the days of ‘going viral’. I am very grateful for the positive reception it has received by Australian audiences thus far and look forward to its theatrical release in this beautiful country. LORDS OF CHAOS has been a 20-year journey for me and I am beyond humbled that this incredible story finally has the opportunity to grace the screens internationally, in Australia and around the world. LORDS OF CHAOS is a story that has stuck with me for over 20 years, and it brings me great joy that Australian audiences get to witness one of the most remarkable triumphs and tragedies that rocked Europe and the music industry to its core”.

LORDS OF CHAOS stars Rory Culkin as Euronymous, Emory Cohen as Varg Vikernes, Sky Ferreira as Ann-Marit and Jack Kilmer as Dead.
