Murder Music â€“ Black Metal Synopsis
â€˜In the late 1960s and early 1970s, UK bands such as Black Widow and Black Sabbath came into the mainstream with occult and satanic inspired music. By the early 1980s Venom stormed the metal stage with a style they dubbed Black Metal. Later in that decade another British band, Sabbat, lyrically promoted Paganism and alternative religions through what was essentially thrash metal, thereby giving the burgeoning Black Metal genre a fresh twist. And in the early 1990s, a new extreme form of heavy metal emerged, via Norway... Black Metal was born, as we know it today. Black Metal had given a whole new meaning to extreme metal. Anti-Christian. Perhaps even Anti-human. A cadre of musicians were even murdered, or committed suicide. Moreover, the satanic element within Norwegian Black Metal circles claimed responsibility for over 40 church burnings, in a little over two years. Hysteric international media frenzy ensued. Murder Music is an 'access all area's insight into the murky, mysterious and often misunderstood world of Black Metal. It's a comprehensive study of the Black Metal timeline, from the 1970s to the present, with unbiased views on the media perception of Black Metal. Furthermore, it's a study of the meaning of Black Metal, the musicianship within the genre and a focus on where it stands today, both in relation to the mainstream and also the underground - 15 years after the Norwegians gave it focus.
