RENDEZ VOUS #1
if this fanzine is a bit old, we always need more zines,
so it's time for funzining! (Hey! No Fume-zining, I
said funzining, so your imagination and cigarettes will
have to remain in your pocket for now).
issue is a quite short A5 pile of paper that contains
36 pages and focuses on the kinds of metal you could
like: Old school metal, with quite a lot of thrash,
some NWOBHM, a bit of death and black, but it's globally
rather focused on Thrash metal the old way and some
speed/ heavy affiliates...
The interviews are nothing
different than the ones from a FANzine, it's not especially
kuntbreaking or long (Sometimes longer than average
zinefun interpuking though) but if you want some nice
reading and more metal metal, it could be enough for
a milky refreshment. Interrogated victims are: ENFORCER,
FRONT BEAST, VICTIMIZER, PAGAN RITES, PENTACLE, HEIMDALLS
I was surprised to notice the absence of
reviews, it lacks and makes the zine look shorter. Instead
you have a bunch of flyers.
The drawings that run
around some of the pages are quite ugly and not very
cool, I guess he didn't practice a lot during school
Globally it's an average fanzine, the
interviews are quite cool but the whole might have been
a little too rushed... Some improvements would be needed
for a possible second strike.
I didn't see traces
of activity of the editor since quite some time (He
also runs FINAL PUNISHMENT Recs and plays in a solo
project called VULCAN TYRANT) but I guess he was doing
quite a lot of things at the same time and needed to
seriously focus on school for some time. It's understandable...
I kinda did the same Ah Ah
If you really want to
get a copy, try the DEATHSTRIKE Records' shop, he has
few in stock (And not in "stockings"!! We're
not in the fucking shemale gothmetal scene! Ah Ah!)
