This is very old magazine. It smells ‘old’ too but I have smelled far more worse than this and even my fingers starts to feel itchy when I flip the pages.
Not sure if Chavdar still do the magazine. Layout-wise, not much to complaint (yes, I complaint a lot here, right?). Good layout like most professional mainstream magazine but Brutallica features more bands from the underground. Some pages are in full color.
Interviews are OK, out-dated of course if you read them now. The one I really enjoy is Faust, made by deputy editor Vanya Marinova which focuses more on lyric writing and drumming.
CD reviews are rated but not in alphabetical order and mostly have their front cover. Meanwhile "The Real Underground" which is demo reviews are not rated and also not alphabetically arranged. Found Bilharzia review here.
There is also 1 page full of news from the metal scene.
This issue comes with free CD sampler.
