Hey you. Yeah, you with the corpsepaint and spiked gauntlets listening to Xasthur and Woods of Ypres on repeat. You like movies? Unless your heart has completely petrified into a brimstone mass of contemptuous despair, I’m betting you do. And do you like independent Canadian movies? Of course you don’t. Nobody does. But if you like your metal like you like your coffee - tons of cream, sugar, and unhallowed rage against the suffocating Christianization of Scandinavia - and always felt that there should be more films about and/or incorporating Black Metal that go beyond those blasé murders, suicides, torture, skull-fragment jazzy jewelery, and ecclesiastic arson that are just soooo 90’s, then you’re in luck. Our friends at the Blue Sunshine Psychotronic Film Centre in Montreal are hosting this unholy Sabbath (Sunday, May 15).
AND, if you like to dabble in both the cinematic and black arts, you’re also in luck! Submissions are still being taken up until this Friday May 13th. The winner gets a copy of Kier-La Janisseès bibliodoc (kinda like a found-footage film essay) Metalstorm: The Scandinavian Metal Wars, which I assure you is completely different from Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn.
Here’s a few examples of previous contest winners for inspiration, but, as a personal request, let’s see if we can break the tired leitmotif of bored dudes in drippy eye-liner hanging out in a forest.
