This documentary delves into Christchurch underground band Into the Void. The Black Sabbath-inspired group was formed in the late 1980s by art school students Jason Greig, Paul Sutherland, Ronnie van Hout and Mark Whyte. Two decades spawned two albums; the reputation of "Christchurch’s answer to Spinal Tap" rests more on legendary live shows, with ear-splitting riffs at bar Dux de Lux. Director Margaret Gordon assembled archive and interviews with the band to capture the milieu of metal, booze, earthquakes and art. In this excerpt Sutherland talks about making noise, and colleagues recall the Dux de Lux days.
I've got a f***ing disease, and it's called heavy metal.– Into the Void guitarist Jason Greig
