LORDS OF CHAOS is a thriller, based on real events, in which the members of a Norwegian black metal band perform a series of increasingly shocking publicity stunts.

Violence

There are sustained scenes of bloody violence in which people are stabbed repeatedly to death. There is a homophobic attack on a man. In other scenes we see brief extracts from horror films featuring gory but dated practical effects including evisceration, limbs being severed and skin being peeled from a man's face. There are also bloody scenes of self-harm.

Suicide

There is a gory and prolonged scene of suicide.

Scenes of strong sex feature breast and rear nudity and thrusting detail. There is frequent use of strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k', 'c**ksucker') in addition to infrequent use of the discriminatory term 'faggot'; the work as a whole does not endorse discrimination. In other scenes, people are shown setting churches on fire, burning Bibles and desecrating gravestones.
