DE NEURASTHENIE #9
had the possibility to read several issue of this zine,
but never wrote a review... Maybe it's the right time
to speak about it.
VDN is an underground fanzine
that seems to focus mostly on the French underground.
French extreme metal bands are most of the time very
numerous in the interviews' summary, and this is a good
thing since there are quite a bunch of cool bands in
there... So I appreciate this support... The problem
lies in the fact interviews are often very short, and
the questions didn't take a long time to be found...
It's kinda the same problem for the reviews, it's often
very short, and do not bring much personal opinions
nor feelings; rather brief descriptions... And I have
problems to easily read some of the fonts.
issue, you could also find some live reports, poems,
a list of demons (I don't see the use at all... huh??)
and a nostalgic article about Atari computers.
have very mixed feelings about V.D.N; is it usually
done in a rush, or is there some special state of mind
I didn't detect? It tastes very tired.
think it might turn on some very underground guys who
basically like black metal, and some bands would like
to be exposed in there... But it lacks of personality,
opinion and burning will to kill for my own use. Quantity
