Listened to A Blaze in the Northern Sky, Under a Funeral Moon & Transilvanian Hunger afterwards. So good.
No surprise you listened to Darkthrone since Fenriz is the only one who comes out of that doc not looking a complete dickhead, Varg is his typical self, he tends to retrospectively change his philosphy every few years and his ranting was never that interesting/entertaining to begin with (for my money he did make the best music of the whole scene though).
Frost comes across an utter joke, like a parody of a black metal dude, and all the scenes of BMs influence in the art world are serious cringe material.
I grew up on and still love a lot of those records but the amount of retrospective mythologising that scene gets is a little over the top. It's always sold more on the juicy church arson/murder angle than anything.

Dat classic Darkthrone trilogy though
