The working crew have signed a deal with with Endtime Productions to release the documentary on DVD.
The producer Stefan Rydehed said about the project: "The topic is very interested because the genre has a major contradiction because it has evolved from the Satanic black metal and there have been death threats, church arsons, murders and so on but never have there been a documentary about the Christian bands and their point of view of the music genre. After completing the documentary, Rydehed said in the press release: "It has been a educational process because I have really broadened my perspective of the different forms black metal can be shaped in. The filmer David Nilsson added: "It feels good to have done something with this earlier undocumented genre and I am now looking forward to new projects.
