Rockcor (Russia) #9, 1995 (in Russian)

Rockcor (Russia) #9, 1995. Editor: ?

This is one of the few older Russian publications I have, so if you can not read it, enjoy the pics. I also checked and it seems this is being published again in some newer, modern form. Either way, interviews and features with Pantera, Darkthrone, Dismember, Deadworld, Dying Fetus, Rage, Mercyful Fate, Necropsychosis, Leukemia, and more.
