Free Event Alert: Black metal documentary BLACKHEARTS screening
Ever since the mid-90s, Norway has been musically associated with black metal – the most controversial subgenre to emerge from heavy metal. Fraught with church burnings, murders and suicides and the ever-present Satan worship, it seems like the best place on Earth to start an evil rock and roll band, right?
Blackhearts is a documentary that focuses on three extreme black metal fans – from Iran, Greece and Colombia – and how their personal backgrounds in religion, ideologies and nationalism play into their love of this blackest of extreme metal genres. This isn’t your typical road trip film – some of these guys risk alienation and even death to be closer to the music they love and worship.
