Banger Films to Release Extended Cut of Gaahl Interview for the First Time

| 9 November 2012 | Reply

Continuing in their efforts to fund the production of the “LostEpisode” of the Metal Evolution series, Banger Films isoffering fans for the first time ever an extended cut of director Sam Dunn’s interview with Norwegian Black Metal singer Gaahl, past member of Gorgoroth. Gaahl’s interview has been cited as one of the most compelling and entertaining interviews Sam Dunn has ever conducted.

The video will be delivered digitally when the campaign wraps up in mid-December.

In 2004 Sam, Scot, and the Banger Films crew traveled to Bergen, Norway to interview him for their groundbreaking documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. According to Dunn, “as the crew started to set up cameras, lights, etc… Gaahl insisted that everyone move to the wine cellar where the room is lit only by candlelight.” What resulted is one of the most memorable interviews in the history of Metal documentaries.

Banger Films have issued a call to arms to the global Metal community to help make the “Lost Episode” of the Metal Evolution series by means of a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo. For just $5.00 fans can pre-order the episode which will be delivered to them via secure e-mail link once the production is finished. There are other campaign perks available as well, such as the opportunity to have renowned artist Vince Locke design an exclusive custom tattoo and have Banger Films cover the ink costs. Alternatively, why not order a giant size “Metal Family Tree” poster? Yet another one-off only available as a campaign perk!
