Until the Light Takes Us is a feature length documentary chronicling the history, ideology and aesthetic of Norwegian black metal—a musical subculture infamous as much for a series of murders and church arsons as it is for its unique musical and visual aesthetics. This is the first (and only) film to truly shed light on a movement that has heretofore been shrouded in darkness and rumor and obscured by inaccurate and shallow depictions.

Featuring exclusive interviews and verité with the musicians, a wealth of rare, seldom seen footage from the "Inner Circle"s earliest days, the film explores every aspect of the controversial movement that has captured the attention of the world. The filmmakers moved to Norway, living and filming there for two years. The movie is not about them though—it's about the extraordinary people and events that make black metal unique, unforgettable, and inevitable. This is black metal as seen through the eyes of those who created it, of those who live it, of those who are at the center of the story of black metal.
