In his latest video, Varg Vikernes addressed “Lords of Chaos,” the latest movie about the early days of the Norwegian black metal scene based on the 1998 non-fiction book of the same name.
In the film, Varg is portrayed by Emory Cohen. Vikernes said in the clip (as transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar.com):
“So, you just watched the ‘Lords of Chaos,’ the film where they have a fat Jewish actor play the role of me. I’m Scandinavian, by the way…
“So, the fat Jewish actor said things in that film that I never said in real life; received things that I in reality never received. He did things that I never did. He did things for reasons that I never had; knew people that I, in reality, have never even heard about.
“And, well, by and large, the whole film is just made up.
“If they actually did some research into this story and the Black Metal scene, they must have just ignored everything they found and made up a story instead. Because everything in this film is just plain wrong.”
“As you probably know, the whole film is just a character murder and they completely ignore the facts. But if you want to know something about the facts in this context, I suggest you check out my playlists, especially the Burzum one, but the others too, if you have time for it.
“Yes, the facts, that you can verify easily, by talking to the people who were actually there. Or by reading my conviction from 1983, freely available to the public in the Oslo courthouse.
“When you at one point realize that this film is just a lot of made-up crap, I suggest you contemplate around the concept a little bit and understand that I am not the only one in history who has been exposed to their character murder.
“Character murder is a common weapon used by people who don’t like Europeans.”
“In reality, I am a traditional family guy, who writes books about European Polytheism and tradition. I am also a PNP role-playing game designer and YouTuber.
“They character-murder and slander me because I – after 26 years of persecution, threats, imprisonment and harassment – still talk up against their lies.”
