OF TORMENT #4
I vonluntary avoided all these webzines looking like
lego-land and flower-shops who mass-review with honey
the most convulsive defecations of the "underground"
metal labels who spend their days working to sell their
stuffs, things are cleaner and brighter! The underground
doesn't seem so shitty anymore since I don't have to
face their midly hidden greed and will to feed your
skull with overabusive promotional purposes! Fanzines
definitely seems to be a safe healer, even when it's
not the best or most killer.
This 4 th issue of
T.O.T tastes like a cool paper zine that might please
those who quite open-minded concerning their metallic
and less metallic (understand Grind and the likes) tastes.
This fanzine doesn't procure the same feeling of obscurity
and undergroundness many fanzines did (and still do
for some) few years ago, no the guys in Throne Of Torment
rather seems positively enthusiastic and in a urge to
let you read about some stuffs they enjoyed in a cool
manner. This tastes like a cool reading, and the questions
in the interviews seems like flowing in a speech. It's
rather like somekind of webzine-style of review, with
less crass and crap in the mind, if you see what I mean!
héhé ;-) All in all I think the reviews are quite too
positive, because the guys seem to find (present or
upcoming) talent even in the most common or average
bands, but as always: it's a matter of tastes.
So I'd rather take the reviews as informative ones concerning
unknown stuffs, while the cool and long enough interviews
with THUNDERBOLT, PSYCROPTIC, OXIZED RAZOR, CORPORAL
RAID, HARMONY DIES, TENEBROSUS, BLACK FLAME, LENG TCH'E,
LUNAR AURORA, GRUESOME STUFF RELISH, KULT OV AZAZEL,
DYSPRAXYA, CORAM LETHE...would be the highlights of
this cool paper zine! It might please those who like
both death metal, black metal, grindcore in quite underground
styles! They also run a small underground label/ distro
called EYES OF THE DEAD. Get in touch for honest business!
