Oslo, 1987. 17-year-old Euronymous is determined to escape his traditional upbringing and becomes fixated on creating 'true Norwegian black metal' with his band Mayhem. He mounts shocking publicity stunts to put the band's name on the map, but the lines between show and reality start to blur. Arson, violence and a vicious murder shock the nation that is under siege by these Lords of Chaos.Written by

Don't believe the haters
I didn't expect to like it, but it was pretty good! Brutal scenes and seemed to stay true to much of the information I've accrued over the years. Varg hates everything, but this seems to be more of his angle on what happened, which in general terms was that Euronymous was a "poser" and took credit for things that weren't his. Hey, it's a movie not a documentary. Only Varg really knows what happened that night and he's already told the his side of things. It's well made, entertaining, and very brutal at times. Give it an honest go and see what you think.
