Hard Stuff #1 (Poland-US) Sept. 1994. Editor: “Mariusz Kmiolek”
A one-off, combined effort from Poland’s Thrash ’em All and US’s Loud Magazine. I am not sure if it ever got off the ground into a regular publication(?), but this short introductory issue from late in 1994 was still pretty cool, with some ads and pics I have not seen elsewhere, some reviews (demo and album), as well as a selection of interviews and features on Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Absu and Setenced. (thanks Pawel)

Nihilistic Holocaust #2 (France) 1998. Editor: “Gab” (en français)
Second issue of this French zine focusing on death metal, however this time around the editor switched it to his langue maternelle, with some late-90s interviews/features on Necrophagist (who, to quote Spinal Tap, now reside in the “where are they now” file), the still kicking Quebecois Cryptopsy and Necronomicon, Brazilian’s Krisiun, as well as My Sovereign, Amid Pain, reviews and news. (thx to original scanner and dark legions for sharing).
