OF ACHERON #1
wasn't too fond of the new paper zines I could find
the last months (I'm thinking about new zines, not new
issues of existing zines), after a while too much of
necro, "metal of death", or conservatism can
be boring and dissolve the initial goal of the music
(The mighty bodily feeling) in salts of necro...
this first issue of BELLS OF ACHERON was a cool surprise,
it is old school, focused on a couple of old styled
metal genres, and doesn't forget to be cool.
nicest pages of the zine are the interviews, it's quite
personalized and can provide quite cool reading, it's
also nice to see a couple of musicians are interrogated
concerning their current and past bands/ activities.
often I don't enjoy the music of every bands in the
interviews' list, but there was enough for me to be
satisfied with the whole.
Nice to see the editor
didn't forget his freedom of speech, it's funny to see
the guitarist of LUCIFERION got upset about some questions
and instructed to these be removed... But instead the
editor published the whole email slags.
is not perfect, but it doesn't bother me too much.
are also reviews. The layout is clear to read, for 64
pages printed on beige paper, with a size to be a bit
bigger than A5.
BELLS OF ACHERON could be a cool,
or very cool, zine to read for those who like it old
school (But not too much), especially dealing with Death
metal, with doors opened towards other close metal genres.
Keep the bells ringing, for the Acheron keeps on
vomiting its flows of pain for more than a few years.
