AND SHIT #8
quite some time since I was last surprised by the size
or visual aspect of a zine... This one is so big I didn't
understand what happened in the package: I unfolded,
unfolded again, and again, and again... To see it appear
as two big posters sized like eight A4 pages. It can
be surprising, but take it as a big newspaper. It can
be quite cool to read lying down on your bed, it's so
big that you feel small (The first zine for giants)
and could easily immerse in the pages...
now we speak about the content: The interviews are generally
quite long, done in a quite good way, and there's a
longer one of Gene Palubicki (Angel Corpse/ Blasphemic
Cruelty/ Perdition temple and others) who explains interesting
things from the past and present of his bands.
are also quite a lot of music reviews, but it's not
so long and lacked of analysis (The style reminds me
of some TALES OF THE MACABRE with a bit of SLAYER Mag),
on the other hand there are also quite a lot of zine
reviews which looked longer and more interesting. I
appreciate the fact the editor says his opinion about
the inspected matters, including positive and negative
This fanzine is clearly old school metal
targeted, but it's not too die hard or collector-minded,
which is cool as you can also read questions about "unmetal"
subjects and there's some life inside (Not simply sterile
The layout was computer made, it looks
quite cool, nothing specially bad to say at this level.
conclude, I'll say this is a very cool and quite interesting
zine; The only things I'd improve are a part of the
music reviews, and maybe I would advice him to inject
a bit more varied or personal questions (Héhé) to make
the reading even cooler.
The size of the zine could
be a problem for some peoples, while others would find
it great... Well, if you read zines in water closets
only, it wouldn't totally unfold (Think about it Ah
