Under the Corpse Zine #1 (?) (NY, USA) 1993

Under the Corpse Zine  #1 (?)  (NY, USA) 1993. Editor: “Paul Beyer”

I recently got this xeroxed and stapled issue from a friend in Montreal.  It’s a nice one from ’93, and features interviews with bands like Pyrexia, Internal Bleeding, Nokturnel, (a long one with) Biohazard, Life of Agony, Type O Negative. Ossuary, Corpsegrinder, Sick of it All, Crucifix, Church of Misery, Scatterbrain, Alchemist, and more. Lots of reviews, an Australian scene report, and some adverts. Good stuff. I think it’s the first issue, but the back cover says #3 in the art, so not sure. Enjoy.


Katopetia Zine#1 (Czech Republic) Spring 1999

Katopetia Zine#1 (Czech Republic) Spring 1999, Editor: “Zdenek Simecek”

This late 1990s zine out of Czech Republic reflected the surge of ‘brutal’ American-style death metal that was dominant in the underground at the time. The editor was and still is from the Czech band Godless Truth, and his professed adoration for all things brutal death metal is all over the place. So, with interviews featuring Devourment, Divine Empire, Dying Fetus, Entorturement, Internal Bleeding, Jungle Rot, Lividity, Morta Skuld, Neuraxis, Oppressor, Regurgitation, Prophecy, Skinned, Sickness, Ton, Wicked Innocence and more, you get the idea. MOSH!


Ripping The Soil #1 (USA) 1993.

Ripping The Soil #1 (USA) 1993. Editor: “Neil Beckman.”

This zine out of Wisconsin was thick, packed with ads and bound with an odd plastic binder that really made it a pain in the ass to scan, (…although it is effective). The interviews are nice, but sparse and brief. Highlights are Epidemic, Mike Browning (ex-Nocturnus/Morbid Angel) who was in Acheron at the time, an early Living Sacrifice, plus Scatterbrain, Internal Bleeding, Baphomet, Impetigo, Baphomet, Cataclysm, Deteriorate, Malevolent Creation Hellwitch,  and more. (As a note, if anyone wants to see any other non-scanned part of this zine or any other, just leave a message.)
