Until the Light Takes Us
Directed by Aaron Aites, Audrey Ewell
UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US tells 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 world-wide. 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.

Love Black Metal, love this documentary!
Solid documentary! I knew nothing about this genre prior to, and this documentary blew my mind! Great piece.
Overall good documentary on one of the most extreme styles of Metal. Good watch for any metalhead especially one's that like Black Metal like myself. This could have been slightly shorter and could have used a bit more concert footage but what can you do. If you've ever been interested in the early 90's Black Metal scene this is a good watch.
Think more time was spent on cool visuals than an actual narrative. Came in with no knowledge on the Black Metal scene and after watching this I'm still trying to figure out what I learned. The interviews did not seem to lead you anywhere. Not good, not bad, just meh...
Great doc. The early 90s Black metal scene can never be duplicated. It was something special and this film captures that. RIP Dead
