One of the best things about the metal community is how dedicated its fans are. That’s why Prog Power sells out before the lineup’s even announced. It’s why bands and fans will travel from all over the world to hang out in Baltimore parking lots every Memorial Day Weekend. And it’s also why black metal fans view Norway as their mecca. The film Blackhearts is a documentary about the latter of those, following black metal musicians from Greece, Iran and Colombia who dream of making their way to the birthplace of black metal to play festivals there and see what inspired one of the most extreme forms of music.
On Tuesday, October 18th, Blackhearts will have it’s New York City debut, at Brooklyn’s mecca of metal, the mighty Saint Vitus Bar.
