The first issue I got was issue #0 (yes, number zero). I got few copies by trading with some metalhead. It was a xerox publication (or photocopied by the people whom I'm traded with). Now having a new issue (not so new now though) I can say there are lots of improvements. Pro-print with some page on white text on black background. Killer!!! Mainly the layout is in cut & paste style. If only the editor stick to all in 'portrait' instead of 'landscape' (I am using the orientation in MS Office as reference here) is much better. No table of content and no page number. Beside the layout, the editor's English also improved. This is the editor who came out with the word 'Goatfather' which later became a song and released as limited edition of 66 copies EP boxset that I have fork out a lot of money to get a copy. There's a lyric of that song here in this zine. There are short interviews with some bands and the questions are related to Blasphemy (the band of course) and lastly the interview answered by the Blasphemy them self. Beside interviews there are live report on "God Beheading Live Ritual 2008" and one gig report contributed by Temple of Adoration Zine on "Under the Black Sun". The editor really shows his anti religion attitude. Face of Buddha in corpse-paint is very blasphemous indeed. This issue comes with an extra sheet consist of Blasphemy full page poster and interview on the other side. I assume this issue was released in 2008 or 2009 judging from the gig report. The new issue already out now. Looking at the pictures uploaded in NWN forum, looks like a good or much better than this issue layout wise. You know what to do. Contact the editor for info on the new issue and asked about this Blasphemy-tribute issue too.
