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!
