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.

delicious movie all the sexy boys , also FUCK mayhem without Dead
This is the best depiction of trve black metal
Pretty thorough exploration of the band Mayhem and its members and their criminal misdeeds/rationales, along with coverage of a handful of other black metal acts.
A great documentary for fans of black metal.
I saw this years ago, not on Shudder. To be honest, not sure why some people (who I believe are not fans of the genre) give it a poor rating. Sure the individuals who started the genre may have been teens, but guess what! Look at where that has gotten black metal! Is there a better documentary on extreme music? I believe not. The Lords of Chaos movie, now see THAT'S something I do not approve of. This is a great documentary for someone wanting to learn a little background on the subject. Definitely recommend.
