OF OBSCENE GODS #1
fanzine could also have been titled "Invocation
of the obese gods" as I'm feeling the vibes emanating
from these pages and the breath of the multiple voracious
leeches has quite a lot to do with the smell of fat,
ugly and nasty music. This is between Metal and hardcore,
preferably the quite beating ones, and we're talking
about Death metal, grindcore, crustcore, black metal
(Rather the thrashing) or noisecore, with a little of
This is the fanzine of a guy
who doesn't follow too much the last hipsting tendencies
of the click, but prefers to talk about some bands he
knows and likes... So you won't find the usual promozine-friendly
names, neither trucks of the most underground-as-none
outfits, it's more something like the materialization
of a personal music collection under the form of interviews,
reviews and few articles. The interviews aren't bad,
it remains quite cool to read even if the band in question
isn't really or your boiling tastes.
The editor should
be around 30-35 years old, if that helps you to locate
the "relaxed" content better.
I can't say

because I'm not a big Core fan, and for example Nunslaughter,
oh well... But that's how it is when you travel a bit
further than the borders of your own world and close
circles of likings.
The layout is quite cool, computer

little vibe that reminds me of In Extremis newsletter
(With not so small fonts... When I used to read it),
or eventually some mid-old Foedus Aeternus (Less enjewelled
with Photoshop frenzy) or super-eventually some Demons
Jail #2 (For some visual nastiness).
be a quite cool zine for you to read and rest after
a long day of quite hard physical work, if you think
your musical spectrum is quite compatible with this
list of interviewed bands: THE KILL, CSMD, ANTISEEN,
ABIGAIL, NUNSLAUGHTER, RUPTURE (Let me add some names
from the reviewed ones: Amebix, Machetazo, Lycanthropy,
Sonne adam, Breathilizor, Final Exit, Deche charge,
Winter, Mesrine, Poopy necroponde, Splattered splitter…).
ferocious dogs invoke the obscene gods, with their bitings,
with their hate.
