Yesterday we posted about casting for the Lords of Chaos movie, which will be directed by ex-Bathory drummer Jonas Åkerlund. The comments I saw on our Facebook we much less than favorable about the book and forthcoming movie, and now Mayhem bassist Jørn "Necrobutcher" Stubberud is speaking out with some pretty strong words regarding how he feels about the movie.
"This book Lords of Chaos is fucking crap and that some stupid Swedes are gonna make a movie out of it is not OK," he tells Rolling Stone. "I will do everything I can to stop this film…. Tell the Swedes and the Hollywood people to go fuck themselves."
So we'll see where this goes. I wonder if Stubberud has anything up his sleeve to actually stop this film from being made? If you're not aware, the book Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground came out in 1998, with a revision done in 2003. It was written by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind and is a completely non-fictional account of the early black metal scene.
