Loud ‘N’ Proud #2 (East Germany) 1990
Loud ‘N’ Proud #2 (East Germany) 1990. Editor: “Andreas Schoewe” (auf Deutsch)
Second issue of this East German zine [“Das Erste Hard Rock und Heavy Metal Journal der DDR”] – this time a bit more even and coming into form – [again, I was told that this was the first hard rock/metal zine to come from the former East Germany (Rostock-Deutsche Demokratische Republik or DDR/GDR) prior to reunification]. Once more, a great window into the German metal/Hard Rock scene in the late 1980s/early 1990 with a live review of Black Sabbath and Running Wild, interviews and features with Headless, Holy Moses, Majk Mati, Mania, Treat, Viper, Mordred, Sabbat, Risk, Rosa Rock, Scanner, a Bon Scott tribute, a Heavy Metal against AIDS feature, plus album reviews and a Sodom lyrics thing and a Tankard pic I have not seen before. (Thanks to N. Barsch for sharing).
