34pg, A4, xerox, English

Black Witchery, Acrimonious, Horna, Woods Of Infinity, Cultes Des Ghoules, Watain, Purification Kommando, Thorns Of Hate, Contaigeon

Bestial Summoning, Crux, Treblinka, Abruptum, Darkwoods My Betrothed, Goat Vomit, Bloodline

Pages are numbered and have table of content. Good computer layout and still look old school. Layout is 2 columns per page using computer so having a tone down frame artwork  (less dark than original) can prevent the text become unreadable if it being printed on the frame. Printer setting can be a bitch some time. Several font types are used at right size which is not too small, the way I like it. Xerox quality is excellent but the printing quality of the pictures is a bit too dark. Interviews are 10 to 15 questions but good questions were asked. The zine is consist of several contributors, the main men for this zine is PB & DALIHROB which I think the person responsible managing the label/distro Hexencave. I got contacted by the guy doing the interview with Thorns of Hate, Lucas, and quickly ordered this zine. For the reviews only cover audio stuff in few sections; album, vinyl and demo which consist of few reviewers and the review are not rated. They have this section called "Forgotten Jewels of Ancient Black Plague" where they put biography of old bands. Good readers will know which bands belong in this section even though I listed probably all bios up there. Good debut issue I must say and I encourage you all to check this one out.
