Circle of the Grind #2 (Tokyo, Japan) December, 1992

Circle of the Grind  #2 (Tokyo, Japan) December, 1992. Editors “Narutoshi Sekine” and ” ? “

Nicely printed zine from Japan that featured both English and Japanese versions of most interviews, with an extensive focus on the Japanese scene at the time. Features interviews/write-ups with Brutal Truth, Ceremonial Oath (pre-In Flames etc.), Benediction,  Eternal (pre-Electric Wizard), Evocation, Gore Beyond Necropsy, Hellchild, Iconoclast, Lobotomy, Maggoty Corpse, Multiplex, Necrotic Mutation, Timeghoul, Transgressor, and more…I like the “demo only’ review section, total underground (the label released CDs are relegated to a number system in the back), and there is also a fun death-grind quiz…inventive, total DIY fun!
