Music fans: the film Until the Light Takes Us is showing worldwide starting this month.
This movie is a documentary about why people make black metal. It's both a movie about metalheads, and a movie about people trying to change their world with music.
It won a ton of awards. Not bad for a DIY, shoestring budget film.
Support this movie as it shows in your town:
Until the Light Takes Us is about the birth of what we now call "black metal," which was the fully-developed form of the music inspired by Sarcofago, Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer that erupted during the early 1990s in Scandinavia.
What makes this movie better than most "metal movies" is that it digs into the psychology of metalheads, and these specific metalheads, to show what inspired their music -- and radical acts of violence.
