Lords of Chaos – Official Film Trailer (HD)

In the 1980s, a young guitarist called Euronymous forms a black metal band called Mayhem, the first of the genre in their country of Norway, with Necrobutcher, Manheim and Maniac on bass, drums and vocals. Quickly during the band’s uprising, Maniac and Manheim depart and are soon replaced by new drummer Hellhammer and a new vocalist from Sweden called Dead, who exhibits self-destructive behavior, which he portrays during their live shows by cutting himself and bleeding on the audience, and throwing pig heads at the posers. At a show filmed by their friend Metalion, the band meets a fan named Varg Vikernes, whom Euronymous initially looks down on.


While home alone, Dead uses his personal knife to cut his arms and throat, and then uses Euronymous’ shotgun to shoot himself in the forehead, leaving behind a suicide note. Euronymous returns home and finds the body but instead of calling the police, he takes photos of the body and moves the knife and shotgun around. After Dead’s body is taken away, Euronymous collects skull pieces to make necklaces; this disgusts Necrobutcher, prompting him to leave the band.


Euronymous soon after opens a record shop which becomes a social hub for Black Metalers like Varg, Metalion, Fenriz of Darkthrone and Faust of Emperor. After being mocked by an ego-driven Euronymous, Varg uses his anti-Christian beliefs as motivation to burn down a local church. When approached by Varg concerning his status as the leader of the Black Circle, Euronymous burns down a church with Faust and Varg accompanying.


Euronymous recruits Varg as the new bassist, a guitarist called Blackthorn and a Hungarian vocalist, Attila Csihar, for the studio session recordings of Mayhem’s first LP called De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, and a power dispute between Varg and Euronymous arises.


After a wave of church burnings commence, Faust brutally kills a gay man, leading police to link Black Metalers to the crimes. Helvete is raided and shut down by the police, and Varg is arrested as prime suspect because of an interview with a Bergen newspaper claiming to have been the one who burned all the churches and killed the gay man. He is soon released due to no concrete evidence being placed.


In anger, Euronymous starts making death threats about Varg, who travels to Oslo in the early morning of August 10, to confront Euronymous. The two engage in a knife duel, which ends with Varg brutally stabbing and killing Euronymous. The next day, the news of Euronymous’ murder spreads fast through Norway and Varg is soon arrested. He is sent to prison for a maximum of 21 years, guilty of both the murder of Euronymous and the burning of the Fantoft Stave Church.

Sunday night’s ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ will be first total lunar eclipse in three years

SOURCE: Chicago Tribune


Chicago sky-watchers could be treated to a dazzling celestial display Sunday night as the sun, moon and Earth align for the first total lunar eclipse in more than three years.


Weather permitting, the entirety of North and South America will be able to witness the Earth cast its shadow upon the moon. Starting at 9:34 p.m. central time, a dark, curved shade will become visible on the face of the moon, according to Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at the Adler Planetarium.


“It’s going to look like someone took a bite out of the moon, but what you’re actually seeing is the earth’s shadow,” Nichols said. “People ask me all the time, what’s your favorite thing about lunar eclipses? I tell them, look at the shape of the shadow — it’s curved. You can see the curvature of the earth. Ancient Greeks and others knew the Earth was round because of its shape on the shadow of the moon.”


By 10:41 p.m., Nichols says, the moon will be completely within the fully shaded region known as the umbra and should begin to take on a red or orange hue. The moon will start to leave the earth’s shadow at 11:43 p.m. Sunday and will return to its normal, bright complexion by 12:50 a.m. Monday, Nichols said.


“The sunlight is shining through atmosphere on the edge of the earth,” Nichols said. “As it passes through the atmosphere, just like when you see a sunset, the more blue light is scattered out and all you’re left with is red.


‘Imagine the Moon’ opens at Adler, a gorgeous new sky show well-timed with Sunday’s eclipse bash
“When that happens with the lunar eclipse, you could say that the lunar eclipse is the collective of sunrises and sunsets happening all around the world at that particular moment in time.”


The color will also depend on how clear the atmosphere is across the globe, Nichols said. Cloudiness, dust storms and volcanic eruptions can all affect the coloring. Lunar eclipses can appear coppery orange, brick red or even a particular tone of gray.


During the lunar eclipse on Sept. 27, 2015, the eclipse appeared dimmer than expected, possibly from ash spewed by a volcano in Chile, Nichols said.


As a part of a citizen science program, some observers around the Chicago area will be polled on the pigment of Sunday night’s eclipse to establish a baseline.


This year’s total lunar eclipse has garnered even more attention for its unofficial designation as a “Super Blood Wolf Moon.” However, these titles are just window dressing for the most part.


A Wolf Moon is a the Native American name given to the first full moon of the year each January. Total lunar eclipses have been termed “Blood Moons” because of the reddish tinge the moon takes once it’s within the Earth’s shadow and because of apocalyptic theories associated with the events.


Perhaps the most noteworthy heading is “Super Moon,” a full or new moon that’s within 90 percent of its closest approach to the Earth. Super moons can appear as much as 14 percent larger in diameter and up to 30 percent brighter.


Adler will be hosting a watch event called “Lunapalooza” in and outside its lakefront campus building between 8 p.m. and midnight.


The planetarium’s astronomy team will have telescopes set up for free outside along with portable heaters and a limited supply of hot cocoa. For the cost of $12 for adults and $8 for children, attendees can watch a live feed of the eclipse indoors and also view a screening of a new presentation called “Imagine the Moon.”


Viewing opportunities are still uncertain in the Chicago area given a chance of snow showers and cloud cover. According to the National Weather Service, sky cover will be between 50 to 55 percent during the eclipse.


For the Chicago area, this will be the last visible total eclipse until May 15, 2022.


“These events are always a lot of fun because no matter what happens outside, we’re going to party with the moon inside,” Nichols said.


“It’s a great way for people to connect with the sky, with an object that people are familiar with and that you don’t need special equipment to go outside and see. We get to see that connection between the earth, sun and the moon in the sky in that moment, which is really neat. You get to start to feel like you’re a part of a larger solar system.”

ROB ZOMBIE Clarifies Confusion Regarding ‘3 From Hell’ Film: ‘The Movie Is Not Finished Yet’

Rob Zombie took to Instagram earlier today (Thursday, January 17) to correct reports on various web sites that claimed he had completed work on “3 From Hell”, the sequel to his earlier films “House Of 1,000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects”.


The confusion seems to stem from the fact that Zombie’s January 14 post on Instagram included photos of him directing all three pictures, under which he wrote: “It took awhile to complete the trilogy but we did it. Top pic is shooting House Of 1000 Corpses in 2001 — shooting The Devil’s Rejects in 2004 and finally shooting 3 From Hell in 2018. Quite a fucking journey to say the least.”


After a number of media outlets took Rob’s words to mean that he had finished “3 From Hell”, the rocker-turned-filmmaker clarified his remarks, writing: “So folks seem confused by my post saying I completed my Rejects trilogy. I said the trilogy is complete but the movie 3 From Hell is not finished yet. Still got a couple months of work left. It’s getting there and it is fucking awesome.”


Zombie returned to the edit bay after a summer tour with Marilyn Manson to finish work on the film, which will reunite Sid Haig, Sheri Moon Zombie and Bill Moseley as the members of the psychopathic, sadistic Firefly family. Moseley told Rue-Morgue last fall that the new film was a “crowd-pleaser,” adding, “From what I’ve heard from Rob, he’s very happy and excited about what he’s got, and it’s chockablock with gratuitous violence.”

During an appearance on “Trunk Nation”, Zombie said that he didn’t envision the original story being fleshed out over three movies when he first started writing it more than 15 years ago. “Every time I would finish a movie… After the second one, I thought, ‘We’re done with it,’ but I always think that with every movie,” he admitted. “And then you kind of live with it for a long time, and the movies sort of take on a life of their own, or they start getting popular and the fans really start embracing them and the characters, and you start thinking, ‘Well… Hmmm… What if I did this? What if I did that?’ This one, it’s 14 years in between the two films, so it’s been a long time; it wasn’t really a rush to make it, by any means.”


It’s not clear whether Zombie plans to resurrect the Firefly trio from the dead in some kind of supernatural fashion in the new film or has found a way to explain that they survived the original movie’s climactic shootout.


“The Devil’s Rejects” is widely considered Zombie’s best film. It’s a semi-sequel to his directorial debut, 2003’s “House Of 1,000 Corpses”, which introduced the Firefly family.


“3 From Hell” was shot in California and has yet to nail down a release date.


Zombie has also completed work on a new LP, which will be out later this year and will follow up 2016’s “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”.

Billy Idol.2019 tour.promoFB.0115-19.crop



Idol, together with Stevens at his side, was an early architect of the sound, style and fury of punk rock. His lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music, while selling out arenas everywhere he played. He has sold 40 million albums while scoring numerous platinum albums worldwide, nine top forty singles in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K. including “Dancing With Myself, “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Mony Mony,” “Eyes Without A Face,” and “Flesh For Fantasy” as well as a New York Times bestselling autobiography, Dancing With Myself.

Stevens is one of the most versatile guitarists and songwriters to emerge from the ’80s rock scene, with influences spanning from classic rock to flamenco. In addition to his legendary career with Idol, Stevens has worked with some of the biggest names in music, from Michael Jackson to Robert Palmer, Joni Mitchell to PINK. Stevens won a Grammy Award for his work on “Top Gun Anthem” and his songs can be heard on countless soundtracks including Once Upon A Time In Mexico and The Matrix Trilogy.


Idol’s most recent record releases, which all feature contributions from Stevens, include his latest studio album Kings & Queens Of The Underground produced by two time Grammy Award winner Greg Kurstin, a 2016 vinyl-only live album entitled BFI Live and the 2018 remix collection Vital Idol: Revitalized which debuted in the top ten of the Billboard Dance Chart.

DIEKLUTE Feat. FEAR FACTORY Guitarist, DIE KRUPPS Frontman: ‘It’s All In Vain’ Video

“It’s All In Vain”, the first video from DIEKLUTE, the new industrial project featuring DIE KRUPPS frontman Jürgen Engler, FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares and Danish musician Claus Larsen of LEÆTHER STRIP, can be seen below. The song is taken from DIEKLUTE’s debut album, “Planet Fear”, which will be released on February 1 via Cleopatra Records.


The “It’s All In Vain” video was filmed last July with director Vincente Cordero of Industrialism Films. The video features clips of the upcoming indie film “The Relic”, which was produced and written by William Shatner, who also stars in the movie. “It’s All In Vain” will be featured in the film, which was directed by Jared Cohen and is due later in the year.


“I’m honored to collaborate with two industrial giants Claus Larson and Jürgen Engler,” said Cazares. “I’m really looking forward to unleashing this futuristic industrial metal onslaught to the world, Get ready for ‘Planet Fear’. In order to create you must first destroy all boundaries.”


“It has been a pleasure dealing with Claus and Dino,” added Engler. “Claus I have known for a long time and we have worked together, as remixers and in live situations. We are old buddies, so it was an easy accomplishment. Dino I have met on several occasions when DIE KRUPPS and FEAR FACTORY have played together in the past, last time at Cold Waves Festival in Chicago 2014. We had never discussed working together, but as the result of our fruitious collaboration proves that it was just meant to be. Our personal styles seamlessly fit together, no compromises were necessary. I’m proud and happy with the outcome, and cannot wait to get feedback from the many fans we have around the globe! DIEKLUTE is here to stay, you better believe it!!!”


Larsen said: Creating this band from scratch and composing our debut album has been a very creative and a big learning experience for me. I do most of my music on my own here at Strip Farm Studio, so having these two legends as production partners has been amazing and very different from what I’ve been used to. I hope we will be able to take this album to stages around the world. We each bring our own thing to the songs and I really feel that we’ve created something very special here.”


“Planet Fear” includes 10 original songs plus a supercharged version of PUBLIC ENEMY’s 1988 classic “She Watch Channel Zero?!”


According to a press release, the disc “combines the efforts of all three musicians who prove that they are hard to beat at what they do best. Aggressive electronic beats, sequencers and guitars, that feel like you are getting punched in the face. Lyrics that critically address the current political situations, spat out with conviction and anger.”


“Planet Fear” track listing:


01. If I Die
02. Out Of Control
03. The Hangman
04. Rich Kid Loser
05. For Nothing
06. Human Error
07. It’s All In Vain
08. Born For A Cause
09. Infectious
10. Push The Limit
11. She Watch Channel Zero?!
