LORDS OF CHAOS BOOK

RELATED LINKS TO GIVE YOU A BIGGER PICTURE

 


Lords of Chaos is one of the most popular books today among the world's metal fans.   We created this page to give people more information about matters related to the book.

This is a controversial book by a controversial author about a very controversial subject.  The main character of the book is Varg Vikernes, probably the most controversial person in the world of heavy metal music.   He gained global fame by killing Euronymus, the key figure in Mayhem, a legend in the world of black metal.  (It should be noted that Vikernes insists that he acted in self defense.)   

In our view, the subtitle of the book, "THE BLOODY RISE OF THE SATANIC METAL UNDERGROUND"  is highly misleading since the main focus of Vikernes is not satanism at all but a revival of ancient paganism.

The subject matter of this revival of paganism is a key part of the agenda for the key author of the book Michael Moynihan, who has published a whole series of books related to both paganism and National Socialist Germany.  Moynihan himself has been accused of pro-Nazi ideas.

We do not plan to sort out all the charges and countercharges related to this book, Varg Vikernes and Michael Moynihan.  What we do plan to do is to add a series of related links so you, the reader, can read more material about this subject and see it in a wider perspective.  We have directly links to Vikernes writings, including his very critical review of the book.  We also list Michael Moynihan's other books so you can get a better picture of him.

In this way you can hear directly from various people involved and reach your own conclusions.
