Why on Earth is GoD featuring aMetallica video for Black Metal Friday, you ask? Well, just two days ago, the trash metal legends released videos for all 13 tracks from their highly anticipated tenth studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, which is available worldwide today, November 18, 2016, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings label.
One of those clips was for the song “ManUNkind” and featured a group of actors performing onstage in corpse paint and bearing a striking resemblance to the notorious Norwegian band Mayhem. I had commented in my review of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct yesterday that I thought it was just Metallica’s way of trolling the metal trolls. Well, it turns out that it is actually our first look at Lords Of Chaos, the upcoming feature film following the almost surreal saga of Mayhem.

Finally, after two years of waiting, Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno has reached theaters. Roth burst onto the horror scene back in 2002 with the low budget Cabin Fever, about a group of friends whose fun small town weekend is ruined by crazy local hillbillies and a flesh eating virus. His offbeat sense of humor and gross-out effects signaled that he was a force to be reckoned with. Then came 2005’s Hostel, and its superior 2007 sequel which garnered notoriety and helped coin the phrase “torture porn.” He has since collaborated with Quentin Tarantino (!), and been busy producing horror films and TV projects.
In 2013, Roth completed The Green Inferno, his tribute to his favorite movie – Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust. That film caused such a stir that director Deodato was arrested on suspicion that he actually killed his crew, and had to demonstrate scenes in court. It is still banned in parts of the world. A squabble between film distributors left Roth’s pet project in limbo, until Blumhouse Productions swooped in as saviors and here we are.
