New distribution list 02-17 available!

Behold… it’s the NEW distro list!!! Yeah I know, it took me quite a while to get it done but good things take time to make, don’t they? Apart from that I had to move all of my stuff to build up a new, improved storage with plenty of space for more aggressive expansion!
But I promise you it was worth the wait ’cause I got plenty of stuff for you people, like new fanzine titles such as Posthuman, Forgotten Path, Morbid Visions, Slowly We Rot, Terozin, Reborn From Ashes (including the “Mexican Underground” special issue!), Arise, Troubled Sleep or V.I.T.R.I.O.L., just to name a few.

Apart from that there’s the usual update on second hand zines I recently found here and there like Hellpike, Horrible Eyes, Spellbook or Hate Meditation + the NEW section with fanzines written in spanish language! So if YOU got spanish written zines for sale or trade, feel free to drop me a note so we can work something out as I would like to distribute more of those in the near future.

Do not forget to take a closer look at the music stuff I picked up for you too, like the great looking Blood Picture Disc 7″ EP “Recognize Yourself”; the new, mind-blowing Hell Desecrator album for fans of early Sarcofago; Merciless’ classic debut “The Awakening” on quality pro tapes; the improved rerelease of Mortem’s “Demon Tales” LP; heavy fucking Lüger and Vociferian tapes released through Von Frost Records or Kandar’s grinding, blood splattering debut album “Groovy” (for fans of Evil Dead!).

Still reading? Good! Let me poke you a little more by mentioning some of my own, NEW RELEASES like the official reprint of DEADHEAD #6, a massive 152 page pamphlet including plenty of bands and stories and interviews and what not! If that still doesn’t satisfy you check out the NO GOD RHETORIC / KANDAR split 7″ EP including 10 minutes of hyper ventilating Fastcore versus bone grinding horror Grindcore from the Czech Republic – on orange and green vinyl (yum!). It’s always worth a shot so give it a try, willya?

New distribution list 01-17 available!

It’s 2017 already… so let’s start off by uploading a new version of my distro list, shall we?!

And as always I found new zines for you people like ARCH VILE from Hungary or new issues of NECROSCOPE from Poland, THRONE OF CHAOS from Portugal or BY THIS AXE I RULE from Spain / Germany – just to mention a few – as well as new old stock of zines like SERPENTSCOPE or the debut issue of VOICE OF THE NIGHT.

Apart from that you might take a close look at the fresh copies of HIRNPLATZT I received from Hirntrust Gind Media (Austria) or the excellent reprint of REST IN PAIN zine I released a couple of weeks ago – filled with truly amazing one hundred and fifty (!!!) handmade pages of pure metal insanity! FUKK!

Needless to say that I also managed to pick up a couple more second hand titles such as ISTEN, SLAYER, DESECRATION OF VIRGIN or THE SINISTER FLAME! And a little bit of music like the new WARTIME CD (Dooooom!) and the “Leather Evil Leather” album of colombian speedsters ALCOHOLIC FORCE while PRESUMED DEAD put all of their recordings on one tape and called it “Defunct Existence”. Curious? Take one – you won’t regret it!

Last but not least I still got plenty of old issues of ROCK HARD and METAL HAMMER in stock you will hardly ever find anywhere else, especially when all of the original poster and add-on material is still inside – like big size posters, flex discs and what not!!!
And there’s a whole box full of pristine looking copies of SPLATTING IMAGE issues, starting with no. 1 up to no. 66, searching for a new home. You know someone who’s into horror and gore movies? THIS might be THE one chance for your buddies to get their hands on some serious stuff!

Download the new list immediatly:


It’s here: REST IN PAIN ZINE #2 (Poland) offers 150 entirely handmate A4 sized pages of pure devotion and spirit including interviews with Profanity Angel, Mortis Dei, Aragon, Iron Hammer Zine, Rotten Age / Aries Vehemens, Conquest Icon, Dark Fury, Nazghor, Manzer, Freezing Blood, Kampf Records, a bulgarian scene report as well as small introductions to Apocalyptic Rites Zine, Burning Abyss Zine, Incarnated, Nekkrofukk, Vaginalluftwaffe Zine, Concatenation and Merciless Death plus various reviews.

All pages of Rest In Pain have been reworked using the original layouts to ensure the best possible quality! Individual copies are available for 8,50 Euro (postpaid) within Germany or 10,- Euro (postpaid, via airmail) worldwide. Write to: witchcraftmag @ gmx. de

Distributors needed, too! Get in touch!!




A friend of mine wants to part with his collection of early german Rock Hard and Metal Hammer PLUS his entire collection of Splatting Image issues and asked me if I could handle the whole lot (of course I can!). I checked every single copy myself and created a complete overview for you people including further descriptions, like overall condition or additional content (like posters, flexi discs etc.) and prices. You can download by using the following link:

Needless to say that early issues of magazines like Rock Hard are pretty hard to find these days, especially when they still include the original (and unused!) band posters or even flexi discs! This might be your ONLY CHANCE to get hold of well preserved early german Heavy Metal magazines from the 1980s!!!
