Metal History Through Fanzines

Thrash Metal (US) November, 1990

Thrash Metal  (US) November, 1990, Editor: “Steve Peters”

Here is another ‘non-zine’ rag I found in my collection and, while obviously a national magazine, it nevertheless had some valuable and interesting content, ads, interviews, and features (much like previous additions such as Metal Forces), so I thought it would be cool to add to the archive. While there is attention to the heavy hitters of Exodus, Anthrax, and Testament, there is also a cool LA scene report, Annihilator, Agony Column, Faith No More, Defiance, and some cool ads. For some reason I could not find an issue number and,  I think it had a very limited run, being printed only when the thrash scene was at its high point. Either way…

    Just posting here to ask if anyone remembers an article about noise that might’ve appeared in this magazine, like a two page piece that mentioned Borbetomagus, Von Lmo, Sonic Youth, maybe Merzbow and so on? Possibly written by Thurston Moore or someone like that. It appeared around this time, I think in Thrash Metal, and got me into lots of weird shit.
