A new black metal documentary, entitled "Light in Darkness - Nemesis Divina", is currently in production. However, what separates this documentary from countless others that have explored black metal's controversial aspects is that the focus is not on the satanic spectra of the genre, but the opposite — the Christian concept of black metal.Producer Stefan Rydehed, who recently completed work on the "Pure Fucking Mayhem" documentary, which focused on the Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM, and David Nilsson have set their sights on the Scandinavian Christian scene, with particular focus on such bands as CRIMSON MOONLIGHT, ADMONISH and FROSTHARDR. Commented Rydehed: "The topic is very interested because the genre has a major contradiction because it has evolved from the Satanic black metal and there have been death threats, church arsons, murders and so on but never have there been a documentary about the Christian bands and their point of view of the music genre." A short trailer for "Light in Darkness - Nemesis Divina" can be viewed below.
