The specific premise is as follows: "In the fall of 1995, Black Metal band, Immortal, set out to make a string of music videos for their upcoming album. With little to no-budget, they walked into the woods outside their hometown of Bergen, Norway, never to be seen again. This is their story."
Check out the first episode below:

Apparently nobody sent Pastor Steven Anderson from the Faithful Word Baptist Church the news that the Satanic panic ended a couple of decades ago, because he's decided to take aim at metal bands.
In an amusingly ludicrous hour long video titled "The Jews and Their Lies (Part 1 of 2)," Anderson argues that the bands Pantera, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest are all Satanic... somehow because of the Talmud.
If you haven't bashed your head against a wall repeatedly in awhile, you could always watch the video below (the references to Pantera start at the 21:48 mark).
For those who may have seen the story trending on Facebook some time back, yes, Anderson is the same pastor who said the act of being gay should be illegal and punishable by death, stating "Here's what the Bible says, Leviticus 20:13, 'If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.' And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along. Because if you executed the homos, like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant."
