A brand new Hungarian black metal documentary, entitled ‘Attention! Black Metal’, is out now and available to all.
Consisting of 25 interviews (some subtitled, some in English), the documentary sets out to define the genre, chatting with such authorities as Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ), Mike Gaspar and Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell), Michael Chirva (Tvangeste), Byron Roberts (Bal-Sagoth), Nigel and Dylan (Hecate Enthroned), Clemens Wijers (Carach Angren), András Nagy (Sear Bliss) and Bishop Of Hexen. The film-makers comment:
“After a short looking out to the story of black metal the movie examines the symphonic black metal genre in a specific viewpoint, from the point of view of the postmodern. It’s an important element of this that it brings together different opinions and doesn’t want to show just “one obligate truth”, doesn’t want to show or interpret just one viewpoint.
“Beside the musicians and some fans other people ‘from outside’ tell their opinions and attitudes about the genre too, including Prof. Dr. Antal Bókay, professor at University of Pécs, Tove Skarstein, Norway Ambassador to Hungary and Attila Gyulai the author of the paper Black Metal ist Krieg.”
