BLEAK zine No. 10 (Spain)

Is a pleasure to review the new issue of this Spanish zine. Nothing less than 80 pages A5 and a distinct design over black backgrounds. Bands interviewed go from the deepest death metal to the dark, gloomy and violent Black/thrash metal. And just to make a point, chats are very well worked and don’t leave outside anything. This issue: MORTEM (Peru), GRAVEYARD (very fun and interesting), ELDEREON (Spain), AVSKY (Sweden), BALMOG (Spain), NOCTURNAL HELL (ABORIOTH’s project, Spain), CULTES DES GHOULES (Poland), return Italian gods BULLDOZER VASSAFOR (New Zealand) and DEAD CONGREGATION (Greece). The issue far exceeded the previous, overall because here included tons of zine, albums and demos reviews. At the end is complemented by a special report on ANTHRAX (‘till “Persistence of Time” era) A mandatory acquisition for fanzine metal head eaters. Spanish written. Contact: Bleak zine P. O.
