Deadbanger #2 (2009)

Deadbanger #2 (2009)
48 pg, A5, pro-print, English

Agony Bag, Ancient Darkness Productions, Demona, Battery, Speedwolf, BlackOath, Gravsorg, Altar of Oblivion, Pugnacity, Deus Otiosus, Vault, Cerekloth, Undergang, Artillery

When I asked them for issue #1 (after receiving paper flyer), they informed me it’s already sold-out. Not so lucky on the debut issue but I managed to get a copy of issue #2 from some distro. This issue was made in 300 copies but already sold-out now. So what will you miss? The layout of the zine is very neat and simple using 2 columns per page, complete with page number and table of content. Good content especially the one with Artillery (very long answer by all band members). There are also some gig reviews, which is quite detailed review of the band performed. Interviewing the label about the band being featured here is new to me. For example, just after interview with BlackOath ended, it continues with Horror Records interview about BlackOath. Another new thing for me is looking at the very little amount reviews (the debut issue was even lesser, as said in the editorial) which consist of 2 page demo, 2 page zine and half page for album, accompany with the front cover artwork.

Deadbanger is also a label.
