Metal History Through Fanzines

Slayer Zine #7 (Norway) 1989

Slayer Zine #7 (Norway). 1989. Editor: “Metalion”

To again celebrate the release of Metalion’s book, I unearthed the last copy of Slayer Zine in my possession, # 7 from 1989. This issue is an almost complete reflection of everything that was fresh and exciting about the underground at the time, featuring interviews with many ‘future titans’ in their demo days and/or on their first album. As always, encased with great DIY artwork and layout, highlights include Nihilist, Napalm death (Bill Steer!), Autopsy, Atheist, Morbid Angel (Best answer from Dave Vincent: “I personally love to play fast, so until my arm fell off, I want to play faster and faster as it is fun.” ), a SUPER long interview with Jeff from Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Merciless, and more.
