    Until the Light Takes Us (Trailer)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2C9vS8mx2c

    In 1991, Norwegian churches started to burn down, just after an underground circle of metal musicians had formed. The film reveals the true story behind the music, murders, and church burnings, and shows what happened to these young men, who tried to change the world using music, art, and violence. Ultimately, they lost control of what they had created.

    I seriously doubt this will be any good, it feels like another attempt by Americans to monopolize on whatever they think will make money.

    If you want to see a good Black metal documentary go see Nocturno Culto's The Misanthrope.

    I have that on DVD, and didnt think it was that interesting tbh.

    The only guy who painted Odin and recities Håvamål is cool though
    I liked the soundtrack

    Fascinating documentary, but it did have some problems. Overall though, the two directors did a great job here.

    Some analysis:

    PRE-SHOW:

    I got there with my girlfriend to find out the show was fucking sold out!! -- Somehow we got tickets and made the show by tricking the ticket salesman. There was a huge audience with mainly 30 year olds and some "metalheads" who were really being annoying. One person (20 yr old with an Emperor shirt) kept screaming "Free Varg !!" and I promptly told him to shut up and inform him he was already free.

    THE SHOW:

    SOME SPOILERS START HERE

    The documentary was mainly an introspective look at Varg Vikernes and Gylve Nagell aka Fenriz. They show a very interesting dichotomy between Varg's interpretation of black metal and Fenriz's interpretation : Varg wanted a political direction and Fenriz did not. This necessarily did not cause friction between them but they went their own separate ways because of it and have not spoken in a long time. The film hammers this point home with various interviews between each of them. There is even a segment showing Fenriz watching an interview of Buzrum where he is being interviewed about Fenriz. You can see the fixation in Fenriz's eyes looking at Varg. Fenriz admits he supported Euronymous in the beginning.

    The film follows Fenriz around as he spoke about the scene and what he believed it stood for. There is great shot where Fenriz is looking at a museum of black metal photos and looks at a picture of Dead before his suicide. He looks extremely uncomfortable, and it's fascinating to see his reaction to these museum pictures. He even signals the directors he wants to stop at a certain point because he feels so awkward. Fenriz seems to be suffering from some huge inner struggle he cannot cope with and it was really amazing to watch. He is also really funny at times with various jokes about Norway, Black Metal culture, etc.

    Seeing Varg was intriguing as well, very well spoken and he articulated exactly what the scene meant to him. "This movement, black metal, was a rebellion against song structure", Varg said. He made plenty of remarks against metalheads and especially Euronymous. The filmed show that Euronymous was also a fake, he never cared for the true spirit of black metal, and he just wanted to be FAMOUS. Faust was also a fake and a giant pussy too. There is a lot more detail I can get into here but I won't since it's better you watch it for yourself. I respect his reasons for doing what he did and and I understand more clearly, why he is the way he is.

    There were lots of other segments with Hellhammer, Ulver, Immortal (who sounded completely idiotic) and a crazy segment by Frost.

    Frost was part of a live exhibit in Milan on BM and literally breathing fire onto some art hanging on a wall, followed by him knifing up and destroying a couch, followed by him slashing his wrist and slitting his throat on the destroyed couch.
    END SPOILERS

    I won't bore you to tears but those were some highlights.

    Some Problems:

    Terrible editing. I initially felt a little dizzy watching the beginning because they had such a shaky cam and throughout the documentary they didn't show some angles properly.

    No mention on the birth of BM, so non-fans will have a tough time understanding this at all and its significance to the overall essence of metal.

    No mention of Varg and his racism (showed a couple of pics, that's it)

    Personally, I wish it was just longer, the ending seemed rushed.

    POST SHOW:

    There was a Q&A Session with Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell (the people who made this) which went well. Most people asked some pretty dumb questions which got redundant though.

    One person asked about why the racism aspect concerning Varg was absent and Aaron acknowledged there should have been a mention but said the directors wanted to keep it on a general scope of Norwegian black metal.

    I had the pleasure of speaking to Aaron after the show:


    He told me there will be a DVD with an entire segment featuring ENSLAVED. This band was absent due to budget constraints.

    The DVD will be 3 hours and will be released "soon". (Really wish I could see this instead of the 90 mins I saw on screen)

    Also, "This movie was made in direct retaliation to Lords of Chaos", Aaron said, which I definitely agree.

    Soundtrack will never be released because of musicians who don't want their content being licensed such as Boards of Canada.

    OVERALL

    Great show. Had an awesome time and it was great documentary. Even my non-metalhead girlfriend really liked it, so bring anyone you think has an interest.

    Do they mention anything about corpsepaint, I was always somewhat annoyed when people praised kiss for that and related them to bm.

    I told myself the idea more likely came from mythology like the Draugr.

    Also im pleased to hear it isnt more sensationalist crap.

    These people are pariah's in Norwegian society...
    I'm not a Christian but the burning of Fantoft was a treacherous and unforgivable act.

    Hellhammer drummer from Mayhem:
    "(In reference to the infamous Norwegian church arsons committed by black metal musicians) I don't know, because from the first time I was against the burning of the Norwegian churches. Totally. I told them, why not burn up a mosque, the foreign churches from the Hindu and Islamic jerks- why not take those out instead of setting fires to some very old Norwegian artworks? They could have taken mosques instead, with plenty of people in them!"
