Dying Terror ‘zine #1



Dying Terror was a really cool music ‘zine that featured interviews with hardcore and metal bands, funny, well done reviews, news, and a couple of opinion columns.  I’m not sure if there was more than one issue, but this one was very thick and featured interviews with BATHYM, FILTHY CHRISTIANS, PRONG, MORTICIOAN, NUCLEAR DEATH, THE ACCUSED, MORBID ANGEL, EVICTION, IMPETIGO, NOKTUNEL, BEYOND DESCRIPTION, HIDEOUS MANGLEUS, SUFFOCATION, ATOMICAUST, and Richard C. who ran Wild Rags Records (the label that put out a lot of cool albums by bands like IMPETIGO, BLASPHEMY, BLOODCUM, ORDER FROM CHAOS, HELLWITCH, BLOOD, and a bunch more).

It was structured a little different than most ‘zines in that all the reviews were up front, then it had all it’s interviews, then all it’s pictures, then the last several pages were all ads.

Here’s some pages for you to check out:

Ultimatum ‘zine #1



Ultimatum was an old metal ‘zine put out by Kim August (who had a very short stint In DERKETA) starting in the mid to late ’80s.  This first issue is pretty slim, and the layouts are boring, but it’s the content that ultimately matters.  This one features 3 pretty good interviews with MORBID ANGEL, ATHEIST, and one of the only ones I’ve ever seen with the Texas cult band NECROVORE.  There aren’t many reviews but they’re all pretty long and in depth as well.  Tho there were plenty of glam and hard rock magazines around at the time, there weren’t very many underground ‘zines that featured stuff like this in the mid-80s (tho there would be a ton just a couple of years later) so this is a pretty good attempt.

Here’s some pages from it:
