Metal Meltdown Apr/May 1989. Vol 3, No. 1. (Maryland, USA), Editor: Jeff “Kluke” VanderClute.
Another issue from “the infernal wastelands” of Maryland -the best local mag we had in my opinion, one that introduced me to heaps of new music at the time. Typed, bound and (pro?) printed, this 1989 issue features a humorous, extensive interview with Wehrmacht, as well Metal Church (post-Wayne), Max from Sepultura (in unedited, Portuguese-accented glory-pre-Beneath the Remains), Dark Angel (with Gene Hoglan from Oct. 1988), Helstar, and none other than Ian Christe contributing a long, informative interview with Steve Martin from Agnostic Front.
