Ascendance #10 (Finland) 1996

Ascendance #10 (Finland) 1996. Editor: “Sami Pärssinen”

Finnish zine that had a lengthy run…this one is from the mid-90s and reflects it with an interesting choice of bands, reviews and more.

Thrash’em All #3 (Poland) 1988

Thrash’em All #3 (Poland) 1988. Editor: “Mariusz Kmiołek” (in Polish)

Early issue of this pioneering Polish fanzine/magazine. In Polish, but even if you can’t read it, still a cool look into the dedicated, passionate world of the East Bloc underground in the 80’s…I am sure this was not easy to put together. Live reviews, features and interviews with The Great Kat, Running Wild, Holy Terror, Anthrax, Exumer, Satan, Minotaur, Wilczy/Wolf Spider, Merciless Death (POL) Kreon, Raxas, Haron, Metal Mind records, reviews and more…
