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.

> 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?????

New distribution list 01-18 available!

Let’s start off the new year with another distro list update to invoke the spirits of sinister paperwork once more! Took me quite a while to put it all together but let me tell you that it was WORTH the wait…

I got my hands on plenty of new zines such as CRUSH THE CROSS, various issues of DEATH WOUND, the new NOISE RECEPTOR, HELLISH PROPAGANDA, ARISE, INTO THE TOMB or DEADHEAD #7, just to name a few. And let’s not forget the BIG bunch of second hand titles I managed to find too, including titles like CHAOS, MYSTICAL MUSIC, CARNAGE, LEPROZINE, RAVENLORD, ANCIENT CEREMONIES and many, many more! Plus a couple of bits and pieces of new music like the SABBAT, SONIC ORDER and NEMESIS EPs (really nice stuff!), a new version of the FEAR OF GOD / DEATH NOISE split LP or the whopping AGATHOCLES / APOPTOSIS split tape – take a look!

In between I also published another issue of TOUGH RIFFS (issue 5 that is!) and participated in the release of the RETORTION TERROR / INVIDIOSUS split CD in cooperation with HPGD Records. If you feel the urgent desire to grind your brain a little more this is just the perfect album to do so! Only 10,- Euros a piece!!!
