OF ADORATION #7
is a compromise. Heart beat is a compromise. Let death
take over your body and let your members rot! Putrefaction
is real cadaveric integrity!
This is an underground
fanzine basically focused on black metal, and the editor
has quite some preference for things from South America...
You can find a bit of death metal and thzrash metal
among other old school genres, but most is black metal.
tone is serious, I noticed he often refers to devotion
and seems seriously bound to metallic devotion, but
hopefully it's not too much as you can read something
from a mind that still breathes (Ah Ah).
are quite informative, sometimes you'd expect more (Ex:
BLASPHEMY), sometimes you want less (Ex: Proselytism
recs), I'd generally say it works quite not bad in the
informative/ serious style, eventhough a bit more craziness
would be nice.
Reviews are numerous (There are quite
a lot of stuffs) and informative. About 75% aren't particularly
long, but would be enough if you want to get an overview
of many things in a short time (It's still longer than
those from old Tales of the Macabre zine, or even Slayer
mag, so I guess it more than ok Ahah)
Lay out is
cut'n paste for the inties, but you don't see a lot
of background pictures as the texts takes most of the
space. The reviews are computer layouted (Did you expect
hand writing?) which makes the reviews' pages look clear.
I would prefer the writing to be a bit less serious/
cerebral/ focused and contain more craziness or mental
crack up from the heavy depths...
T.O.A from other underground black metal zines with
an underlined taste for south American old school stuffs
wouldn't be so easy, perhaps he's a bit more serious
minded, and maybe he would win because of the quantity
of reviews and infos he can offer. Anyway, I'm not naturally
interested in all the content, so a right conclusion
could be: If you're into this kind of old school muzak,
you could be interested in Temple of adoration.
