The project goes into pre-production in November, with physical production scheduled to begin in Februrary 2006.

The movie is based on the book “Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground” (view cover/details here) which documents some of the events that have occurred in black metal’s history. Documenting the activities of such bands as Mayhem’s Varg Vikernes murdering fellow band mate Aasarth Oystein (better known as Euronymous).

Director Hans Fjellestad and Producer Ryan Page are currently working on the screenplay with Writer/Publisher Adam Parfrey. ZU33 described the movie as follows;

Equal parts music, true crime, occult, and subcultural anthropology, the book by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind chronicles the Norwegian Black Metal music scene in the early 1990’s. Since that time, nearly 100 churches have been torched and desecrated by adherents of Black Metal, the most extreme form of underground music on the planet. In an escalating unholy war, Black Metal bands and their obsessive fans have left a grim legacy of suicide, murder and terrorism spreading from Norway to Germany, Russia, America and beyond. The feature film will focus on the relationship between legendary figures Varg Vikernes and Euronymous and the rest of the “Black Circle” as they wage war against the powers that be in their native country.

Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground was originally published in 1998 by Feral House US. A second edition followed in 2003 which documents Black Metal activities since 1997.
