Here's the first installment of One Man Metal, our latest documentary that takes a square look at a shadowy fringe of Black Metal that has never been documented... until now.
We interviewed three enigmatic solo artists—Leviathan, Striborg, and Xasthur—who produce black metal on the margins of society. These are men who don’t just play the music, but embody what it reflects: isolation, misanthropy, and anger.
The documentary includes the first on-camera interview with Scott Connor, AKA Xasthur, who crafts his bleak sounds from a crumbling apartment in the hinterlands of Los Angeles. We also explored the remote environs of rural Tasmania with Sin Nanna of Striborg, and finally traveled to San Francisco to speak with Jef Whitehead, AKA Leviathan.
Now, “One Man Metal” will see the light of day, following a series of delays leading up to Whitehead’s 2011 conviction on one count of aggravated domestic battery. You can watch the trailer here, and keep your eyes open for parts two and three in the coming weeks.
