PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve noted before, I never managed to read the “Lords Of Chaos” book and with the film being released only a month from now, its highly unlikely that I will get to it before then. That said, I do know a fair amount of the history in which this story originates and think that the trailer is pretty on point to the frenetic drama and darkness that surrounded this band and those who came into contact with them. I have read that the film will feature NO original music from the bands being portrayed so that is rather interesting but let’s see what happens when this comes out. You can also order a copy of the blasphemous tome down below care of Amazon.com and enjoy one of the ominous promotional posters for the film. We shall see you again and don’t forget to see the cast of the film in the video of Metallica’s track “Man Unkind”. I posted that way back when their album came out and you can transport to the clip HERE. Good day.
