The doc will not show at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam following last Friday's Paris attacks.

A new documentary on the Eagles of Death Metal will not show at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam. Following last Friday's Paris attacks where terrorists killed 89 at the band's concert at the Bataclan, the BBC reports the timing felt inappropriate. 

The Vice-produced film is called The Redemption of the Devil and follows the band's frontman, Jesse Hughes, leading up to the release of new album Zipper Down.

In it, the hard-hitting rocker turns 40, becomes an ordained Catholic minister and considers a future in politics.

The film was released in October and is available online.
