Word of Mouth Zine (PA, USA) #3 Oct 1995

Word of Mouth Zine (PA, USA) #3 Oct 1995. Editor: “Chris Maycock”

This was a brief, digest-sized zine out of Pennsylvania, but the interviews are exceptional and informative. With just four bands in this one, it covered Sentenced and Tiamat as they both grew further away from their death-metal roots (with Wildhoney, and Amok, respectively), an interview with Fred from Dismember as “Massive Killing Capacity” dropped, and a VERY enlightening one with Marten from Meshuggah just after the release of “Destroy, Erase, Improve.”
