Black Metal Right From the Source!
Mark T. | Albany, NY United States | 05/31/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a raw but excellent documentary on the European Black Metal scene from the mouths of the musicians themselves. There is no narrator, only opinions expressed by the musicians to occasional questions asked by an interviewer (largely unseen). Topics discussed include satanism, origins, religion, church burnings, racism, Dead's (of Mayhem) suicide, etc. Interviewed musicians include Cronos of Venom (best, most insightful and funniest interviews in the documentary), Celtic Frost, King Diamond, Dark Funeral, Enslaved, Mortiis (ex-Emperor), Abbath of Immortal, Gorgoroth, Fenriz of Darkthrone, etc. Also includes clips of Immortal, Merciful Fate/King D., and other bands in concert. The only things that would have made it better is clearer sound (some dialogue is hard to understand due to background noise, etc. and subtitles would have helped in spots) and the participation of a couple of more bands (i.e., Mayhem and Emperor) who probably didn't take part because they wouldn't get paid enough. Those two minor complaints aside, this is an excellent documentary and well worth the money. Buy it and spread the word!"
