always cool to discover new paper zines, since you could
expect more personality in the writings than what is
usually flooding the web... But I noticed more fanzines
begin to use more and more the excuse of the old school
and "It was better before" to build something
with not much personality or opinions inside... That's
kinda the problem of BLACK BLOOD.
if the content is rather focused on "Old styled",
or better said follows an "Opposite to the mainstream"
approach, I didn't find much differences from the usual
spiked and metallic zines: It follows the same usual
ideas, with some kind of serious approach... The fact
I'm not a big black metal fan might not help to enjoy
most of the rather black metallic content, but everything
is more than a matter of tastes...
First big problem:
In the interviews the questions are short, lack of depth
or are too cliché, really! (“Do you think that black
metal is still underground”… Well…)
I need more criticism in the reviews... Now, we the
readers, know the styles he likes, but more criticism
and brainstorming can only make it more interesting...
layout looks serious, done with a text editor à la Winword,
but nothing particular.
The content might appeal
to some younger maniacs (Mostly into black metal) with
a taste and wills to discover more of the old spirit,
but apart from the fact "Metal was better before"
and "Underground rules", what will I remember?
Hu... Maybe the MARTYRVORE interview, because it's the
first one I read... But anyway, Satan deserves more
depth, or craziness... or both.
