Eruptions From Below #5 (Toronto, Canada) 1993

Eruptions From Below  #5  (Toronto, Canada) 1993. Editor: “Laurie Fortune

Copied and stapled zine out of Ontario (formerly out of Buffalo). Solid and packed with ads, representing the ’93 death metal underground quite well. Features numerous reviews, and (brief) interviews with Cannibal Corpse, Lucifers Hammer, Deteriorate, Angelkill, Exterminance, and more, with the highlights being the killer live reviews of the classic Suffocation, Obituary, and Deicide tours from that year.


Ripping The Soil #1 (USA) 1993.

Ripping The Soil #1 (USA) 1993. Editor: “Neil Beckman.”

This zine out of Wisconsin was thick, packed with ads and bound with an odd plastic binder that really made it a pain in the ass to scan, (…although it is effective). The interviews are nice, but sparse and brief. Highlights are Epidemic, Mike Browning (ex-Nocturnus/Morbid Angel) who was in Acheron at the time, an early Living Sacrifice, plus Scatterbrain, Internal Bleeding, Baphomet, Impetigo, Baphomet, Cataclysm, Deteriorate, Malevolent Creation Hellwitch,  and more. (As a note, if anyone wants to see any other non-scanned part of this zine or any other, just leave a message.)
