Speed Attack #2 (Germany) 1985. (auf Deutsch) Editors: “Michael Trengert and Peter Zohren”

Second issue of this German zine featured last month, released in the year of 1985.

Just a great layout, very readable (if you can read German) and featuring both underground German favorites as well as future stars, including Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus, Slayer, Destruction, Zoetrope, Enforcer, Hallows Eve, Iron Angel, Mercyful Fate, Monolith (Italy), Avenger, Omen, Possessed, Sacred Rite, Steel Vengeance, Tankard, Overkill, Voivod, and more…
