Varg Vikernes took another shot “Lords of Chaos” director Jonas Åkerlund, calling him an “absolute idiot” while addressing two of the film’s central points he regards as “absolute nonsense.”
In his latest video, he also said that late MAYHEM guitarist Euronymous was “homosexual in the closet.”
He said (as transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar.com):
“‘Lords of Chaos,’ the film. A film about idiots, according to the director. I think he used the wrong preposition. It’s a film by idiots, isn’t it?
“I saw that BBC talked about the film, and described it as a ‘true story.’ And this brought a smile to my face because whenever the BBC says that, you can be sure that it’s not the true story.
“And according to the makers of this, film, it’s based on ‘the truth and lies.’ They don’t really tell you the percentage of truth they based it on and the percentage of lies they based it on, but they say that themselves.
“But still, BBC, according to them, it’s the true story. In this little video, I’m going to discuss two things that I get a lot of questions about. Did Euronymous really have a girlfriend?… And did Euronymous really cut his own hair?
“Euronymous was a homosexual in the closet. He hadn’t left the closet yet, but we all know what he was and where he was. This, of course, makes the completely made-up character Ann-Marit in the movie rather ludicrous.
“He didn’t have a girlfriend, nobody in the scene had that name or resembled the film character with that name even remotely, and he was probably gay .
“And then the next point, about Euronymous having cut his own hair before he was killed. He didn’t.
“And I guess the filmmaker came to this odd conclusion – and then fabricated a story around that misconception – because he saw the autopsy report.
“On the autopsy report, Euronymous has no hair because when they performed the autopsy, they cut off all his hair because he had a big wound in his forehead because I killed him with a stab to the forehead.
“My knife was stuck, I had to jerk it out because it was through his fricking skull. The hole was so big and deep you could see the yellow parts of the brain inside, but still, they claimed he had ‘bled to death’ from ‘multiple stab wounds.’
“And the coroners thought, ‘Maybe we should check out if he has any more injuries to his head.’ They shaved it all off to investigate, which is what coroners do when they perform an autopsy.
“Please tell the filmmaker about this because he’s an absolute idiot – he doesn’t seem to understand that this is how it’s done.
“So there you have it – two central points of the film and they’re both absolute nonsense, completely made up by an absolute idiot director. And according to the BBC, this is ‘the true story.’
“Great work. I feel like I’m in living ‘1984’ and looking at the news reports from the Ministry of Propaganda.”
