We’ve been banging on about Vice’s On The Road series recently, but their sister-site, Noisey, has just started showing a new three-part documentary series titled One Man Metal, giving a somewhat more dramatic title to the sub-subgenre it is showcasing – that which more often than not gets referred to as Bedroom Black Metal.
