Claudio Marino from the Swedish film production company Artax Film have done the documentary “Music, Blood And Spirit“, the film will focus on the life and work of WATAIN mainman Erik “E” Danielsson. The film will be out during this fall.
Erik Danielsson comments: “While ‘Music, Blood And Spirit’ is in no way a WATAIN project, but rather someone else’s portrait of me as a person, Claudio’s stern and solemn approach to his work reminded me much of how we do things with WATAIN. I can recommend the movie to everyone who wants a different angle on my person than what they might be used to, since the focus here lies on what motivates and drives me personally, rather than WATAIN itself.”
Although mainstream now, the black metal music scene was a small but violent underground movement in the mid 90’s. With the inception of Venom and Bathory, the second wave of black metal hailed from Norway and was the result of a lot controversy. Erik Danielsson is the creative mind behind Watain, a Swedish black metal band reaping success not only among fans but also in the public eye.
Who is the man behind the corpse paint? What is black metal? Can music be considered a religion? Magic, fire and death.
