Grind Zone #1 (Italy/Spain) ? 1994 (En Español)

Grind Zone #1 (Italy/Spain) ? 1994. Director: “Claudio Cubito” (En Español)

A somewhat mainstream Italian publication, translated into Spanish for Spain (and published by a German conglomerate!), yet containing many cult underground acts in their prime. This goes to show just how far the ‘underground’ was from being really underground by 1994 – only to collapse back into obscurity more or less by 1995-96. Features and interviews with Entombed, Cathedral, Asphyx, Burzum, Tiamat, Samael, Gorefest, Anathema, Amorphis, Cynic, In Flames, Doomstone, Dark Tranquillity, Expulsion, Misanthrope, Osmose Productions, Century Media, Nuclear Blast, Peaceville, Roadrunner, Death, Eucharist, Impaled Nazarene, Absu, Phlebotomized, Sadness, Schizo, Cradle of Filth, Mind Riot, Black Shine, and Sadist.


Mettalic Butcher #4 (Poland) 1992

Mettalic Butcher #4  (Poland) 1992. Editor: Rob Tarasiuk

EXCELLENT ZINE – VERY well laid out (with KILLER cover art!), put together by Mr. Tarasiuk, who apparently got most of the interviews and pics when he was in Belgium in 1991 or so (check out the editorial), catching all the classic tours of the 90-91 era…(really, who is not jealous reading this now?!) Numerous classic bands represented here, at the height of the ‘golden’ era of death metal, interviews with Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Cathedral, Dark Tranquilitty, Dead Infection, Disgrace, Dismember, Gorefest, Grave, Immolation, Morbid Angel, My Dying Bride, and more…
