We’ve been hearing whispers about the black metal movie Lords of Chaos since it premiered at Sundance last year, but now one year later, it appears that a U.S. release is almost upon us. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (Spun), the movie is based on the true story of the notorious Norwegian band Mayhem, known for their bizarre and disturbing history that involves church burnings, suicide and murder. The first teaser trailer certainly seems to play up the comedic aspects of the story, but we can only assume it gets a lot darker. Lords of Chaos stars Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer and Sky Ferreira and it hits select theatres on Feb. 8th before going to VOD on Feb. 22nd. Check out the teaser after the jump and let us know what you think.
