New York City-based production company After Hours Films is working on a documentary about the Syrian death metal act Netherion. The band released their debut album Sphere Of Terror last year and has an upcoming new album titled IX. In a small step in making the Syrian metal scene known intentionally, Netherion members will reunite and move to the US in order to shoot the documentary about the band and play live.

After Hours Films explains why they decided to film a documentary about the band: "This band has been able to persevere in the face of extreme adversity, successfully recording and releasing one album despite never playing together. Against all odds, Netherion have been able to achieve a measured amount of success through social media. They currently have over 3,000 likes on Facebook and 160 followers on Twitter. Aside from that, the band has also received positive reviews from online outlets such as Nocturne Magazine, Brutiful Metal Radio, Salute Records, and Metal Storm."

"Oppression happens everyday all over the world and Netherion represent the latest example of the extreme prejudice. Their early success is a testament to their fortitude, and now we are in the process of helping them take the next step. We have begun the process of getting the band out of Syria so that they can freely pursue their passion without fear of prejudice. We want to help them achieve their dream of touring and to spread their message to the worldwide audience. With escalated tensions as a result of the civil war in Syria, time is of the essence. As After Hours Films, our role in this process, is to record and document Netherion's incredible journey from imminent danger to the stage."
