Gibson got an exclusive preview of the new black metal documentary "Until The Light Takes Us." Here's an excerpt of their reactions:

"...the new documentary Until The Light Takes Us tackles church burnings, the occult and, even, murder to craft a captivating film that’s essential for both black metal aficionados as well as viewers who are curious about the scene and would like a well-constructed overview of Norway’s cultural and musical makeup.

"However instead of just focusing on the scandalous details, Until The Light Takes Us hones in on the Norwegian black metal subculture itself and centers around members of Mayhem, Burzum and Darkthrone—and features detailed interviews with members from each of these acts, so you’re able to hear about the history of the scene from the artists who helped pioneer it themselves. Additionally the film addresses why this scene found traction in Norway and captures the darkness and isolation of the country via striking cinematography and visuals."

"...Although the media has chosen to focus on the more sensational and controversial aspects of the movement, Until The Light Takes Us manages to humanize these musicians and put into context exactly what catalyzed the brutal metal riffs and equally brutal actions that transpired during the nineties."
