Find the truth about Black metal

Two years ago saw the release of a documentary about Black Metal and what happened in Norway. After churches were burnt and people murdered the press got involved and discovered what was going on in this new sub-genre. Soon you can watch it On Demand.

Until the Light Takes Us (2009) is a feature length documentary about the story of black metal. Part music scene and part cultural uprising, black metal rose to worldwide notoriety in the mid-nineties when a rash of suicides, murders, and church burnings accompanied the explosive artistic growth and output of a music scene that would forever redefine what heavy metal is and what it stands for to other musicians, artists and music fans worldwide.

Until the Light Takes Us goes behind the highly sensationalized media reports of "Satanists running amok in Europe" to examine the complex and largely misunderstood principles and beliefs that led to this rebellion against both Christianity and modern culture. To capture this on film, directors Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell moved to Norway and lived with the musicians for several years, building relationships that allowed them to create a surprisingly intimate portrait of this violent, but ultimately misunderstood, movement.
Available on Demand from Apple and Sony Playstation from September 15, 2011
