TANGLED ROOTS: The Origins of Black Metal
14:30 Sat 18 Jan 2020
Independent arts publication Becoming the Forest delves into the influences and surroundings that have shaped the musical subculture of black metal.
Through music videos, archive interviews and documentary outtakes, we journey through landscapes both natural and fantastical, with discussion on the genre’s early interest in ecology, myth, heritage, and the darker sides of humanity. Guest programmed by Una Hamilton Helle.
In partnership with The Quietus.
Panelists include: Una Hamilton Helle (Becoming the Forest), Louise Brown (The Quietus), Charlie Woolley (Crypt of the Wizard), Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies)
Becoming the Forest is an ongoing arts project and publication which looks at our relationship to our surroundings. Specifically, it focusses on the forest and how the aesthetic and philosophy of the musical subculture of black metal has become entangled with this topography.
