True Norwegian Black Metal
Norwegian Black Metal has actually become a brand, being one of Norway’s largest exports in the music industry. This documentary, produced by VICE Magazine, is an introduction to the Black Metal scene of Bergen, Norway.
A huge part of the scene is dominated by fake wannabes, masquerading as satanic evildoers – in turn bewildering rebel teenagers, making them believe they now have somewhere to belong. With this image, these bands are getting rich quick.
But in the darker corners of Norway, there are other Black Metal bands who see themselves as “true” and truly create music that conveys the dark hatred that they feel. This documentary explores this authentic side of the Norwegian Black metal scene through the eyes of Gaahl, one of the most legendary vocalist in the scene.
