This documentary delves into Christchurch underground band Into the Void. The Black Sabbath-inspired band was formed in the late 80s by art school students Jason Greig, Paul Sutherland, Ronnie van Hout and Mark Whyte. Two decades have only spawned two albums; the reputation of “Christchurch’s answer to Spinal Tap” rests on legendary live shows, with noise complaint-worthy riffs splitting ears at bar Dux de Lux. Director Margaret Gordon assembles archive and interviews with band members and mates to capture the milieu of metal, booze, quakes and art.
I've got a f***ing disease, and it's called heavy metal.– Into the Void guitarist Jason Greig
