'Lords of Chaos'
Throw your sign-of-the-horns hands up in the air for Mayhem – a Norwegian black metal band that pioneered the subgenre's look and pulverizing attack of downtuned guitars, double-bass rolls and throat-shredding shrieks. They were the corpse-painted poster boys of the scene. Then the group's singer shot himself, the guitarist and bassist began burning churches ... and things started to get weird and violent. Music-video godhead Jonas Akerlund (The Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up," Madonna's "Ray of Light") gives their story the music biopic treatment, and something tells us this is going to be a little gnarlier than, say, Walk the Line.
