MAYHEM Documentary Maker Planning Sequel

A sequel to the acclaimed Norwegian/Swedish documentary "Cult of Aggression", focusing on the Norwegian black metal pioneers MAYHEM, is currently in the works.

"The first documentary about MAYHEM, 'Cult of Aggression', was about their history — mainly about their music, but, of course, if a band has such a bloody history as MAYHEM, you can't [leave] that out of the documentary," the film's director, Stefan Rydehed of Strym Productions, told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.

"'Cult of Aggression' was mainly with Manheim and Necro Butcher but had a few parts about Dead when I used a voice-over and some folks who lived in Kråkstad when the band had their rehersal/livingplace there," Rydehed continued.

"The new version of [the film], which will be totally new except Manheim's part, will still focus about the music, events, albums, members and sessionmembers and people who have been involved in the scene. So it will be a pretty huge documentary. Still underground!"

The original "Cult of Aggression" film received its world premiere earlier this year at the Oslo Filmfestival, where it was shown twice. Copies of the film can be ordered from Metallian Videos at this location (available only on VHS).
