“People don’t read any more. It’s a sad state of affairs. Reading’s the only thing that allows you to use your imagination. When you watch films it’s someone else’s vision, isn’t it?”
[Interview in The Independent, 15 October 2005]” • Lemmy Kilmister

New distribution list 03-18 available!

Autumn season is at our doorstep and it’s time for the third update of my freaky-deaky FANZINE DISTRO LIST including another dirty bunch of new fanzine titles such as Zombi Danz, Iron Hammer, Violent Abstractions, Chronicles, Posthuman, Fatal Underground or the incredible Blasphemous book! And once again I managed to pick up a small bunch of second hand zine titles like Refraktor, Heartattack, Inside Front, Profane Existence or Gerilya!

You may want to check the music section too and get yourself a copy of the new Necro Schizma – Erupted Evil 2CD compilation made by Iron Tyrant Records, the Bestial Summoning and Denial Of God CD rereleases from Bloody Productions, Griberriket‘s new “Sluket” vinyl album on fiery orange vinyl or the small selection of highly disturbing NOISE tapes of bands like Glaukom Synod and others.

And thanks to Jon of Mors Omnibvs I received another bunch of new pins and patches with Nuclearhammer, Vatra I Sumpor, Reek Of The Unzen Gas Fumes and Vassafor motives – check out the details at the end of the list!

Aaaaarrrrhhhhh…. it’s time for HEADSPLIT MAGAZINE #11!!!! Can you fuckin’ believe it? Since the initial print run of only 50 copies being created by the Headsplit crew that sold out the night of the Undergang gig in Portland 2017, and the loss of the printing company right afterwards, this issue never really made it to the public. Which I felt was completely unacceptable as I have always been a fan of this little rotten beauty! So I just had to reanimate it, hoping it would crawl back to life one last time… and BEHOLD, it’s alive!!!

And Headsplit #11 brings you another rotten fist full of great bands like the belgian Black/Death duo called Perverted Ceremony, Oath Of Cruelty from Houston, Hellbringer from Australia, legendary US Black Metallers Grand Belials Key, thrashin’ Gammacide from Arlington, danish sado grinders Vomit Angel, the Death Metal punks of Nekrofilth from Cleveland, and a couple more plus various comics (Mortuus, anyone?), (show) reviews, photography by Peter Beste aaaaand the glorious glorious Headsplit babes (of course)! All that on 70 fully colored pages preserving the original US letter size, written in english.

Get your copy for 10,- Euro (plus 1,45 Euro postage within Germany or 3,70 Euro postage worldwide) by sending an order to >>> take a look at the contact page right here


Finally available – the official reprints of issues 4 and 5 of Malaysia’s leading underground metal fanzine! Issue 4 including bands such as IMPETIGO (seriously long & in-depth interview!), HEADHUNTER D.C., BLACKFIRE, LEVIFER, NOCTURNAL VOMIT, TRANSGRESSOR and more plus reviews, articles & odd stories on 80 A4 sized, b/w pages; issue 5 featuring the mighty BEHERIT !!!, REPULSION, SHAKLES, NAUSEANT, EMBRACE OF THORNS, EMBALMED SOULS and many more plus reviews & articles on 76 A4 sized, b/w pages including an A3 sized, b/w BEHERIT poster.

Single copies are available for 7,- Euro each, plus 1,45 Euro postage within Germany or 3,70 Euro postage worldwide (via airmail). Send your orders to: >>> take a look at the contact page right here



Guess what… it’s time for two more UPDATES again! Yes – not only one but TWO damn updates for ya people out there:

> First I’d like to present a brand new issue of long running AQUELARRE ZINE from Peru! It’s number 16 already and features interviews with some quite exotic bands such as Pheretrum, Demonomancer, Noisecore, Devotion, Evocation, Necrovomit, Temptum, Witchnight and a couple more plus a bunch of reviews, short band introductions as well as a special on the hungarian fanzine scene (written by David of Posthuman Zine!). It’s got 60 A4 sized pages in black & white, is written in english and can be obtained for only 6,50 Euro in Germany or 8,00 Euro worldwide including postage and handling. Send your orders to: >>> take a look at the contact page here

Distributors are more than welcome to get in touch – as always!!!

> And I finally finished another update of the DISTRO LIST including a good bunch of new fanzine titles like: Pariah Child, Offense, Forgotten Path, Corrosive Altars, Coffeetimes, Abominatio Desolationis, Bestial Desecration or Schreikrampf! I even found a few titles for the second hand section and even updated the information on ALL the spanish 2nd hand zines including featured bands and what not! You also like FREE stuff? A friend donated a huge pile of old Sin Is There, Eternity and German Underground Crossection issues and you can pick as many as you like – thanks Maik for your generous gift!
For those who are into comics: I picked up a few old but well preserved copies of Germany’s U-Comix Magazine featuring plenty of hilarious and unusual comic artists.

Last but not least I found and traded a little bit of music too (you know me, I just can’t resist) like the excellently remastered CD version of Lasse Marhaug’s “White Inferno” that will make your neighbors scream out in agony (HA!), some sweet leftover copies of Impetigo’s “Buio Omega” picture disc EP, excellent & vibrating represses of Grief‘s “Depression” and “Dismal” albums plus stunning records of british psyched out doom heroes Headless Kross and stoner rock worshippers Bong! It’s always worth a shot, don’t you think?

You can download the new list here:

You can also view the entire list online now by clicking the “DISTRO” button right here on my blog! I will try to update the list on a regular base so you can keep yourself informed anytime you like.


And here I am once again with another update – just a mere week after introducing the Vatra I Sumpor Fineprint Portfolio: it’s TOUGH RIFFS MAGAZINE issue SIX, this time featuring bands such as SADISTIC INTENT, MERCILESS, ATHEIST, GOD MACABRE, ROTTREVORE and many more, plus additional features like an in-depth SLAYER special or a close look on hard to find Death & Black Metal EPs from the 1990s! All that on 60 A4 sized and perfectly bound b/w pages, entirely written in english, accompanied by another excellently drawn, sinister cover artwork. This might be the best issue of Tough Riffs to date – so why not get yourself one while it’s HOT?????
