Black metal documentary on RockWorld.TV
This just in: ‘MURDER MUSIC’: BLACK METAL DOCUMENTARY TO DEBUT VIA ONLINE PAY-PER-VIEW LONDON, April 16th 2007
Titled ‘MURDER MUSIC: A HISTORY OF BLACK METAL’, the 64 minute documentary eschews much of the tabloid sensationalism that shrouded the genre in the early to mid 90’s, focussing instead on the music itself – an element thus far overlooked by the mainstream media.
Written by well established rock journalist and radio DJ Malcom Dome and directed by David Kenny, ‘MURDER MUSIC’ is presented and narrated by Rockworld.TV’s own Rene Ackermann, boasting over 20 exclusive interviews with band members, journalists, authors and other scene affiliates and experts. The production team travelled all across the UK and to black metal’s spiritual home of Norway to research their subject and to conduct interviews.
Amongst the bands featured ‘MURDER MUSIC’ are the legendary, trailblazing likes of Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle Of Filth, Satyricon, Venom and Sabbat – each of whom provide revelatory insights into the complex, creative and fascinating world behind the hearsay.
The documentary will debut online at www.rockworld.tv on the suitably ominous date of FRIDAY APRIL 13th, 2007. It will cost but £1 to stream the movie, and it will be available to each viewer to revisit as many times as they please for 24 hours after payment.
There will also be a series of programming to tie in with the documentary airing on Rockworld.TV (Sky Channel 368) itself, including ‘MURDER MUSIC: BACKSTAGE’: a behind the scenes look at the making of the documentary, featuring unused footage as well as extended and unseen interviews that just missed the final cut.
