Until the Light Takes Us looks back on the early Norwegian black metal scene. Through interviews with some of the founding members, it tries to understand what black metal meant to them and how it was taken out of their control and spun into something else.
A lot of the discussion focuses on Varg’s murder of Euronymous, but Fenriz is around too, to shift things back to the music. While there are a few prominent omissions like Ihsahn, the docu does a fairly good roundup of the others and includes Faust and members from Mayhem and Immortal. There’s also a gore-performance by Frost (however dubious it may or may not be).
