Noisey and VICE present One Man Metal, a new three-part documentary aimed at the shadowy fringes of black metal that have 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 sees the light of day, following a series of delays leading up to Whitehead’s 2011 conviction on one count of aggravated domestic battery."
