Drowned Magazine #2 (Spain) 1991. Editor: “Dave Rotten”
From Drowned Productions‘ own Dave Rotten, this zine is an incredible survey of the underground from late 1990 into 1991, with a lot of original photos, some from Dave himself (apparently from a trip to Sweden that included meeting up with Dissection and others). Very informative with scene reports from Italy and Finland, well-written reviews and interviews and features on many demo-era classics such as Disgrace, Damnatory, Disharmonic Orchestra, Pandemonium, Demigod, Dissection, Infernal Death, Excidium, False Prophet, Sentenced, Human Waste, Impaled Nazarene, Convulse, Sinister, Necrophobic, My Dying Bride, Purtenance, Severence, Vader, Old Funeral, Phlegethon, Putrid Offal, Disembowelment, Malevolent Creation, Sigh, Vital Remains, Suffocation, Tormentor, Unleashed, Vacant Grave, Gorefest and many more…(courtesy of the scanning work from Tezcat from the NWN! board – many thanks/gracias).

Exhume Zine #4 (Tennessee, USA) July 1993. Editor: James Kelly Enochs III.
This was the fourth and final issue of Exhume (issue #3 was put up a while ago), and like the previous, it was stapled on thick, copied paper. This makes for some hard eye-squint reading in places, but nothing that zooming in can not fix. The editorial reflects the interesting time that was 1993 in the underground, as ‘first wave’ death metal bands were either breaking up, getting weird/stagnating/soft, or signing to major labels. Some bands you may know like Samael, who are still going today, and others like Afflicted and Seance were very cool bands that broke up shortly thereafter. Also check scene reports from Lithuania and New Zealand, as well as an interview with Metalion of the Slayer Zine from Norway.
