Scott Free and Vice have teamed with music video phenomenon Jonas Akerlund to tell the haunting story of a dream turned nightmare for a group of teenagers who spiral out of control in an orgy of excess and ambition. 

Oslo, 1987. Determined to escape his traditional upbringing, 17 year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) becomes fixated on creating ‘true Norwegian black metal’ with his band Mayhem. As he works to create increasingly shocking publicity stunts to put the band’s name on the map, the lines between show and reality start to blur as his bandmates come to believe the hype. Arson, violence and finally, a vicious murder shock the nation.
