Headfucker #4 (Italy) January, 1997

Headfucker  #4  (Italy) January, 1997. Editor: “Raffaella Guerini

Released during the dark days of the death metal underground, this exceptionally well designed, well-printed, and well written zine out of Brescia (in Northern Italy) had a very nice run and was a standout for the death metal scene at the time. While traveling in Europe during the summer of 1997, I had the opportunity to meet both Raffi and her co-editor Carlo, and I will never forget how nice and welcoming they were, showing me around the region over those few days I stayed with them. This MASSIVE issue in particular features interviews with Exit 13, Hemdale, Deranged, Exhumed, Necrosis (Florida), Sepsism, Deeds of Flesh, Festering Puke, Wicked Innocence, Infernal Torment, Necrotic Mutation, artist Eric Kim, and TONS of reviews that will give you a good cross-section of all the bands that were passing ads around 1996.
