The long-awaited and -overdue black metal documentary entitled "Out of the Black - A Black Metal Documentary" has been released for free via YouTube. Executive director William Shackleford said: "This film has been one hell of a journey - a lot of money, pain, intrigue and on and on and on. So thank God it's finally released. "I think we made a good film. We wanted to stay true to the art, and as you know, that's very hard to accomplish in this materialistic world, but we did it anyway. "I have to thank really one person: artistic director Stefan Rydehed from Sweden. Without that guy, we would have nothing. A true talent." Rydehed said: "I think we made a good film. We accomplished what we wanted to accomplish. We did not want to follow a trend that is so common within black metal documentaries, the church burnings, all this stuff. We wanted to examine the music, social a religious aspects of the art and we did that." The film can be viewed below (via Blabbermouth).

    I give this 2 stars out of 5. It really lacks anything interesting about Black Metal it is just a bunch of no names saying how much more Satanic they are then the rest. Here are a few things that bugged me 1. The only real band they took the time to talk about and show footage was Slayer? Slayer is not Black Metal in any real terms. Heavy? Yes Death Metal? Maybe, Black Metal? No ****ing way. 2. Cradle of Filth? I have never herd anyone say they thought these guys were black metal. Give me a break 3. These so called Black Metal fans. I think I saw 2 Slipknot shirts in the crowds. Enough said there. 4. The black metal bands trying to sid skirt the holy Nazi thing that went on back in the day. Nothing says Black Metal like kissing the PC polices ass. 5. I think the whole corpse paint thing has played it role. But if you are gonna do corpse paint could it at least be some what original looking. 6. Why not a lot of talking about Mayhem and almost no if any talk about Darkthrone. Really just a disappointing video.

    I found a MUCH better black metal alternative a while back:
    Parts two and three are easy enough to find.

    Did they re-cut it? I remember seeing this steaming pile of dung about a year ago and it focusing heavily on that prick "Morbid" and douche extraordinaire Weston Cage. There were some interviews with middle aged Death Metal guys thrown in for some reason as well. All in all, I think you were being a little generous by giving it a 2, man.

    Well heck yeah! I'm looking forward to watching this. I'm not the biggest black metal fan (I like a few bands) but it's an interesting genre with a crazy history to say the least.

    That was the worst documentary I have ever watched. Sweet Mary and Joseph. Who the hell even are these bands? Domgard? Strigoi VII? Just go watch Fenriz's little thing on youtube with the big erase board.

    Obviously you're not Trve or Kvlt enough. That's why you've never heard of those bands.
