Abyssic Storm #1 (2013)

Abyssic Storm #1 (2013)

I have been thinking on how to put the review. Should I put them in 2 separate entries in this blog or just 1?

This issue is split into two separate 'issues'. Both having the same front cover but the content is different. If you don’t look at them clearly, you will think both are the same. You will miss out ‘Copy Venom’ and ‘Copy Poison’ is written there. If combine into single issue, it will be a massive 150+ pages!

In general the interviews are very long and interesting. All interviews have introduction and the date when they are made. The 2 editors; M Abyssus & N Abyssus giving their own editorial notes. They have table of content and the pages are numbered. 1 column per page with page border and they use a lot of pictures. Layouts are good!

The zine will be made available online once the print copy runs out. I like this idea and I will do the same if I ever made a print zine.

Both copies are hand numbered 033/150.

Now we go to each Copy.

Copy Venom
76 pg, A5, xerox, English

Krossburst, Resistance, Tsjuder, Pestilent Screams, Omnizide, Ronnie Ripper's Private War

The reviews are called "Under Scrutiny" and in several parts. They are not rated. The 'highlight' of the release or the best song of the release listed and the end of the very long review.'Under scrutiny' indeed. All formats in one section. Part I and II in Copy Venom.

Copy Poison
76 pg, A5, xerox, English

Khaos Aeon, Occulta, Necroshine Records, Obsessor, Ungod

Page number continue from Copy Venom, starts at 78. Beside interview there are "Under Scrutiny" Part III. Also present here is concert review @ gig report 'scan through the eyes of those visiting, playing and organising'. Unusual way of doing gig report. The visitor or bands giving their opinion on the gig. Very original. Some visitor wrote 2 pages long!
