Clandestine Zine (Santiago, Chile) #1 July 1994 (Español)

Clandestine Zine (Santiago, Chile) #1 July 1994. Editor: “Robert P. Zarathustra”

Here at SBMS, a noticeable lack of zines from the non-English speaking world compelled me to start digging up the zines I have in other languages, so here is a first from Chile (in Spanish). The main feature of this issue is a lengthy interview with Uruguay’s Inner Sanctum, notable as a project involving Anton Reisenegger (of Chile’s Pentagram, and currently in Lock Up). Other cool contributions (for those who can read it) include interviews with Gorefest, the highly underrated Texans Imprecation, Macabre, Inner Sanctum, Alchemist, Allegiance, Anathema, Gorefest, Macabre, Mercyful Fate, Nightfall, Ripping Corpse, Undercroft, Vital Remains, Osmose Productions and others. (Note: A few interviews in this zine were unreadable due to printing errors, so they were not included). Lastly, I have numerous other zines in German, Finnish, and more that will go up periodically to diversify the site in coming months…

Also, Clandestine was resurrected in 2010. They published their second issue in
2011 and will press a third issue in December 2012. They are online here:
