Infernal Zine #2 (Rovaniemi, FINLAND) 1992 (In Finnish)

 Infernal Zine #2 (Rovaniemi, FINLAND) 1992. Editors: Esa Juujarvi and Matti Selin

Here are some excerpts from this fantastic stapled and printed zine from the northern Finnish town of Rovaniemi (better known as the folkloric home of Santa Claus to some). The zine is all in Finnish, so the few Finns that do stop by here will get more out of it than most. It features pretty much ONLY Finnish bands from the time, and was packed out with locals that never made it, but also more popular notables like Sentenced, Vomiturition (now known as Rotten Sound), cult heroes Adramelech and Depravity (whose members went on to be in Sonata Arctica and Korpiklaani), and also Thergothon, Mordicus, God Forsaken, and hometown black metal dudes Black Crucifixion, among others.
