Thrash Em All (Poland) 2/1989

Thrash Em All  (Poland) 2/1989 (in Polish) Editor: “Mariusz Kmiolek”

Another issue of Thrash Em All from Poland. Again, not really a “zine” I know, but for historical purposes, it is still a pretty cool insight into the east block scene. Features a mix of Polish bands and Western (I wish I could read that MOD interview…!) Anyways,  interviews and features on Bulldozer, Ciecie Kata, Cliff Burton, Despair, Rage, Gomor, MOD, Massacra, Deathrow, Napalm, Napalm Death, School of Violence, Piotr Mankowski, Sabbat, Smirnoff (YES, the BAND!? who are still active), Samael and more…
