Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground by Michael Moynihan & Didrik Søderlind details outbreaks of Black Metal crime in Finland, Germany and the United States. It includes the secret history of occult Rock, a section on Varg Vikernes’ promulgation of bizarre Aryan UFO theories, and material on the career of Hendrik Mobus, an international neo-Nazi fugitive. Featuring hundreds of rare photos and exclusive interrogations with priests, police officers, Satanists, and leaders of demonic bands; it formed the basis for the film Lords of Chaos, released in the UK by Arrowfilm on March 29th.
“An unusual combination of true crime journalism, rock and roll reporting and underground obsessiveness, Lords of Chaos turns into one of the more fascinating reads in a long time.”Denver Post
