is not new and brightee and freshly released, but who
gives a broken-glass-fuck since there's still something
to read and this publication seems to remain in existence?
Cyber slurper... DEPTH CHARGE is an Australian fanzine
based on extreme metal and according to the location,
you will probably imagine it has quite a lot to do with
black metal in the fukked way and other things like
that... The content has quite a lot to do with war metal
and black death, even though traditional heavy metal,
beer injected thrash and old school Death can find their
place sometimes... The spirit of the content is apparently
quite alcoholic driven, with some fukk and bone crunch,
it can be felt sometimes they aren't too geographically
far from SAD EX. There's some die hard state of mind,
but hopefully for the reader it's not devoid of criticism
(Which sometimes lack in the "Die hard" zines.
You know... Everything Metal Metal is good... Giving
so much respect to a point own opinions get lost etc)
and you can occur to read some nice critics about all
the vynil bootleg bullshit, some quite sharp reviews
and other nice things like that.
the choice of featured or interviewed bands I have mixed
potato feelings, as always it's a matter of tastes...
But as well as many war metal/ black death zines a part
of the highlighted outfits keeps me almost cold... You
could read some interpurges with FLAME, PROCLAMATION
(What's so good about their music?), VICTIMIZER, GRIPPIUD
(Is it really such a revelation? Never heard about),
WURM (Do they answer snail mail?), CIRITH UNGOL, HELLISH
CROSSFIRE (They have many things to say!), KARNARIUM
(Keeping it necro), KRATORNAS (Doesn't he run a project
called "Kakatornas"?), DENOUNCEMENT PYRE,
FUNERARY PIT, ASSAULTER, DARKTHRONE (Old interview reprint...
Interesting), IMPALED NAZARENE (Old intie reprint) Etk...
The visual side of the thing is cut and paste the raw
way, but not too fukked (Remains easy readable).
is a quite good fanzine that fits the fukk criterias
of the genre and will contain enough balls or fresh
beer explosions to please fans of the style.
not one of the worse zines I read in this kind...
