LORDS OF CHAOS Aussie Home Entertainment Release Announced!
Following its Australian Premiere at last November’s Monster Fest where it was awarded the ‘Golden Monster’ for Best Film and February’s nationwide Monster Fest Presents special event screenings, Umbrella Entertainment will release Jonas Åkerlund’s LORDS OF CHAOS to DVD & VOD on June 5th.
Oslo, 1987. Seventeen year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) is determined to escape his idyllic Scandinavian hometown and create “true Norwegian black metal” with his band, MAYHEM. He’s joined by equally fanatical youths – Dead (Jack Kilmer) and Varg (Emory Cohen). Believing that they’re on the cusp of a musical revolution, the group gets even darker driven by the black metal dogma to spread evil. They begin burning down churches throughout the countryside and stealing tombstones for their record store. But when the press catches up with them and Euronymous takes more credit than he’s earned for the group’s violent acts, Varg, fresh out of jail, arranges a dark encounter to settle the score and ultimately determine who the darkest black metal musician is.
Drawing from his experience as the drummer in a black metal band, director Jonas Åkerlund brings a level of authenticity to the screen rarely seen along with the unmistakable style that made his music video work so memorable.
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’.
Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1
Audio: Dolby Digital 5.1
LORDS OF CHAOS hits DVD & VOD on June 5th.
