The Meads of Asphodel – Metatron’s 2017 Winter Solstice Speech




Life In The Shadows

‘Life In The Shadows’ explores the dark, complex world of underground English Black Metal band ‘The Meads Of Asphodel’. A band with controversial opinions, hidden identities and a determined rule that they will never play live.

The film shows the band at their most vulnerable, gaining exclusive access to the Meads world. Metatron explains his controversial lyrics and ideas on religion, J.D Tait guides us around the Meads’ Bridge Gate Studios and Urakbarameel vents his annoyance at being labelled a ‘Battle Metal’ band.

Featuring interviews with Meads collaborator and Sigh frontman Mirai, plus comment and opinion from rock journalists Malcolm Dome and Jonathan Selzer. There’s even a glimpse of that very rare beast…a live Meads performance.

This is ‘Meads Of Asphodel – Life In The Shadows’.
