Synopsis

Based on an astonishingly true story, Lords of Chaos recounts the exploits of the Norwegian black metal movement's most notorious band: Mayhem.

After the gruesome suicide of vocalist Per Yngve Ohlin, the band's founder, Øystein Aarseth, used the opportunity to inject a mix of satanism, havoc, and murder into the music to sell more records.

Inspired by the book Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground, written by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind.
