peoples say "Give the dog a bone"... But if
we turned it to "Give the bear a beer"? It
could be more funny!
Dancing and roaring bears, jumping
bears, puking bears... And more like flying bears, polka
bears, vodka bears... Yes, polka and vodka, you might
have understood, we're back in Poland! The European
land where metal is more ugly... I'm not sure if there
are so many bears in there, but at least there are many
fanzines, and once again you'll read the beerview of
a funzine written in polish! Are you ready to switch
on your bear-vision? Here we drink: I noticed since
a few issues R'LYEH turned out to be more professional,
the (s)lay-out looks better and there's more and more
stuffs to read... Always into the underground and metal
metal point of puke, but the editor also seems to inject
touches of humor from here and there (Didn't learn polish
yet, but I understand the language of pictures). Sometimes
the visual ass-pect of the thing (Argh, the thing, I'm
terrorized... Will be hard to sleep tonight) reminds
me of French FOEDUS AETERNUS (Yet not as worked), it's
computer done in a clear way yet with some fantasy from
here and there... The cover is on glossy paper, the
inside pages are on regular paper but were probably
pro printed. The interviews are long and (apparently)
speaking enough. There are quite a lof of quite long
reviews, and few articles, live reporks...
Turbo, Deiphago, Demonic halocaut, Hesperus dimension,
Hailstorm, Lividity, Imago mortis, Gortal, Age of agony,
Sinful souls, November, Nunslaughter, Disgod... And
R'LYEH is still quite strongly bound to the
black metal world, but there are also other extreme
metal styles inside and apparently enough "fun"
to make it a cool mag for underground extreme metallers...
Now learn polish and tell me if I'm wrong.
