Mettalic Butcher #4  (Poland) 1992. Editor: Rob Tarasiuk

EXCELLENT ZINE – VERY well laid out (with KILLER cover art!), put together by Mr. Tarasiuk, who apparently got most of the interviews and pics when he was in Belgium in 1991 or so (check out the editorial), catching all the classic tours of the 90-91 era…(really, who is not jealous reading this now?!) Numerous classic bands represented here, at the height of the ‘golden’ era of death metal, interviews with Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Cathedral, Dark Tranquilitty, Dead Infection, Disgrace, Dismember, Gorefest, Grave, Immolation, Morbid Angel, My Dying Bride, and more…

 


Putrid Dysentery Zine #1 (France) 1996

Putrid Dysentery Zine #1 (France) 1996, Editor: “Bruno Bascaud”

This zine focused heavily on the grind scene of the mid 90’s, and this issue features many of those second generation Carcass-inspired followers. The editor even lays out the zine with a cool ‘Carcass-ish’ style vibe with his ‘mondo-medicale’  titles for each section…. Featured bands include Malta’s Beheaded, Dead Infection, Haemorrhage early Exhumed and Hemdale, a VERY early Necrophagist, Entrails Massacre, Dawn, Dead, Avulsed, and much much more. Cool Scene Reports as well!
