A disturbed music writer sets out to find an elusive black metal musician who has been missing for the past ten years. His inquiries lead him to a tiny town deep in Tasmania's isolated south-west, but there appears to be no trace of the musician. Slowly he comes to realise the town is in the grip of a malignant entity, forcing the people into a fearful conspiracy of silence. Despite terrifying and inexplicable confrontations with the unknown, the writer continues his search, helpless in the face of a compulsion to discover the fate of the mysterious cult musician. A Black Metal Ghost Story is inspired by the atmospheric music of Striborg.
