south africa’s electrifying punk and metal revival is black and proud in new short documentary “black black metal”

Soweto is brimming with the energy that makes punk music a necessary outlet, and bands like TCYF, Reeburth and Demogoroth Satanum are leading the charge. Check out Wim Steytler’s documentation of this movement below.
