PLAY WITH THE DEVIL – BECOMING ZEAL & ARDOR
“Are you the only person to combine slave songs, field hollers and chain gang chants with black metal? – “Yes!” The Swiss musician Manuel Gagneux came up with this music for one of his experiments in genre mixing. And then suddenly: bam! The breakthrough to success. A film about music, Christianisation vs Satanisation, primitive messing around, success, business and humour as an attitude to get by. Morgane Remter
