Until the Light Takes Us peers into black-metal darkness
|
()

Of course, Until the Light Takes Us — full of artful shots of Norway's stark, gorgeous countryside and cityscapes, which go a long way toward illustrating what inspired the black metal guys in the first place — is also opening up the scene for curious outsiders.

"It's out of our hands now," Fenriz shrugs. He's bitter, but he's got a point. Murders and mayhem and Mayhem aside, once pop culture snatches up your subculture — see: Guitar Hero's black-metal character, Lars Ümlaüt, or the aforementioned Lords of Chaos flick — there's no stealing it back.
