Diarium Autopsia # 2 (Finland) 1992

Diarium Autopsia # 2 (Finland) 1992. Editors: Heidi Lipsanen and Sonja Kangas

This fantastic, yet short lived zine was stapled and photocopied, but read and felt like a professional. From Finland, yet written in great English, it focused on the Finnish scene extensively (with fun pre-Rotten Sound interview with Vomiturition, and other stuff like Mordicus and Belial). Also features cool interviews with early Swedish notables like Afflicted and Liars in Wait (w/ Kristian Wahlin), and the interview with Mike Patton/Mr. Bungle is pretty exceptional. Plus Thromdarr, Rot, Uncanny, Sentenced, Pestigore, Paradise Lost, Napalm Death, The Corpse Grinders, Lubricant, Incantation, Exempt, Dismember, Decomposed, Ancient Rites, Amorphis and more..
