Metal History Through Fanzines

I Came From Darkness #4 (Finland) February 1996

 I Came From Darkness #4 (Finland) February 1996. Editor: “NorthWind”

 

Early zine from long-time Sinister Flame operator/writer NorthWind, whose keen insights into the darker arts interpret the transitional mid-90s period of black metal (and emerging affiliated/obscure sub-genres) with both disdain and anticipation. Well-written and idiosyncratic, a true gem of the era. Features interviews and/or review-features with Bethzaida, Azhubham Haani, Burzum, Hammer of Damnation zine, labels like Entropy Productions, Necromantic Gallery Productions, Malign, Setherial, Helheim, Necromantia, Mortiis, Septic Flesh, The 3rd and the Mortal, Solistitium records, Lowland records, Misanthropy records and more. Thanks very much to Matin V. for scanning, from the personal archives of sir Risto. PDF up in downloads.
