Copied and stapled zine out of Ontario (formerly out of Buffalo). Solid and packed with ads, representing the ’93 death metal underground quite well. Features numerous reviews, and (brief) interviews with Cannibal Corpse, Lucifers Hammer, Deteriorate, Angelkill, Exterminance, and more, with the highlights being the killer live reviews of the classic Suffocation, Obituary, and Deicide tours from that year.

Rockcor (Russia) #9, 1995. Editor: ?
This is one of the few older Russian publications I have, so if you can not read it, enjoy the pics. I also checked and it seems this is being published again in some newer, modern form. Either way, interviews and features with Pantera, Darkthrone, Dismember, Deadworld, Dying Fetus, Rage, Mercyful Fate, Necropsychosis, Leukemia, and more.
