ONE MAN METAL: FUN DOCUMENTARY ON… WELL… GUESS, YOU FOOLS
Noisey has released the first episode of a three-part documentary series, One Man Metal.
While the title of the series is as likely to conjure images of Cloudkicker as Leviathan, it does, for better or worse, concentrate on one man black metal bands. I guess One Man Black Metal doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
ANYWAY, this episode is still really interesting. Filmed in appropriately grim black and white, it follows the aforementioned Leviathan, as well as Xasthur and Striborg, it not only includes a nice, short history of black metal, but lots of insights into why anyone might choose to be a one-man musical project, as opposed to trying to join/put together a band. There’s even a few nice moments of levity! Watch:
