Blood Of The Ancient


Questa fanzine Ŕ consigliata agli amanti pi¨ nostalgici del metal estremo e non. E' infatti una caratteristica tipica del suo redattore quella di andare a rispolverare band di culto ormai semidimenticate. Le sue ricerche si rivelano utili per riscoprire tante perle del metal dei tempi che furono. I tre numeri di "Blood Of The Ancient" che ho avuto modo di leggere sono veramente appassionanti, sebbene solo il numero 6 contenga delle recensioni. Il punto forte di questa fanzine sta nelle interviste, sempre molto approfondite, e nel raro materiale fotografico. Christian e soci non guardano comunque solo al passato. C'Ŕ spazio anche per gruppi pi¨ recenti anche se il criterio di scelta penso sia regolato dai gusti di chi scrive. Date un'occhiata ai contenuti sottoelencati degli ultimi tre numeri per vedere quante curiositÓ si possono trovare tra le pagine di "Blood Of The Ancient"! La fanzine Ŕ in bianco e nero e le pagine sono ciclostilate.
