Contributors will gain access to various perks such as an exec producer credit, a production share and a collection of items donated by members of bands including Mayhem, Darkthrone, Enslaved, Thorns, Satyricon, Emperor and Keep of Kalessin.
Christian Falch, who is producing for Gammaglimt, said the idea for the docu was to show the great impact Norwegian Black Metal has had on fans and musicians far away from Norway.
“We trying to explore what happens when this music and the ideology behind it meets with cultures that is very different from Norway. Even though (the characters) do not have much in common, they share the passion for black metal and the music have inspired them to a great degree in their lives,” added Falch.
