isn't a new fanzine, but it's the first time I can read
an issue. To make it clear at the very beginning: This
is a metal metal zine that obviously deals with underground
metal, with a tendency to take it the die hard way:
Thrash metal, black metal, black death metal are the
The interviews aren't bad, some are
cool, some are more than cool; When he knows the interviewed
ones a bit more it can lead to nice interpukes and volatile
exchanges of acid vomit. The global layout is cool/
nice: It generally has some drawings around the texts
(Reminds me some SLAYER Mag issues... Little problem,
sometimes it hides the texts a bit) or it's the usual
cut ‘haine’ paste on black background.

while reading... So maybe those who complain are fresh
newcomers who don't have the keys to metallize x2? héhé)
fourth (t)issue also contains and IRON FIST poster;
The editor sent me a 3 tracks promo CD of this band,
but I'm not sure if it comes with the zine, so don't
order it exclusively for the promo CD! Ah Ah.
could be a quite good read for big fans of metal who
like it die hard and (th)underground, but it's not particularly
a marble-statue breaker because other zines of this
kind exist and it's more or less the same quality.
it's you to know how many zines you need each month
(Yes, "Never enough" could be possible, if
you really want it... All metal metal metal).
