Poster & Release Date for Black Metal Biopic LORDS OF CHAOS

Lords of Chaos Banner 750x422 - Poster & Release Date for Black Metal Biopic LORDS OF CHAOS

One of my favorite horror movies that screened at this year’s Fantastic Fest was the based-on-real-events biopic Lords of Chaos, directed by Jonas Akerland. Based on the novel by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind, Lords of Chaos is about the seminal black metal band Mayhem, but also about the scene that birthed the band and the worldwide infamy key players achieved.

Yesterday, we got our first look at the official poster for Lords of Chaos. It features Rory Culkin as Euronymous, the founder of Mayhem who may or may not have been the ringleader of a satanic posse that left a body count and scores of Norwegian churches burning in the mid and late 1980s. Give it a gander below, followed by synopsis for Lords of Chaos.
