Virgin with the number six and the best King Wolle’s work so far beyond the shadow of a doubt. With the biggest amount of pages filled by true metal only. I’m not surprised as the editor has been faithful to his convictions and beliefs since the very beginning. And if the opening Japanese Barbatos is just ok, the next one Dekapitator seems to be best chat in whole desecrated virgin’s family due to veeery long and interesting (!) answers of Wes, everything can be read in the same breath, believe me. With no time to rest another great intie strikes my eyes, namely Mr. Corchado and The Chasm. And I could mention here Clandestine Blaze, Desaster (did they give a laconic and boring intie anytime???) asked by Peruvian guest Roy Elgueara from Anal Vomit. Then heavy metal glares proudly amongst pages: the Russian Aria done by Johann Jurtaikin – simply great talk with Владимир Холстинин, in addition it was like a flashing point for me to enter the kingdom of this amazing band. If some guests are given, it is a need to mention another one Bart Gabriel who provided really good chats with two Polish legends Kat and Stos, besides the Malaysian Break the Silence and Hirax – yep, these interviews pumped a fresh blood into the desecrated flesh.
Well, looking through the content it’s quite easy to state that everything has just superior quality as compared to the previous works, maybe the English itself didn’t turn into decidedly better. For sure the reviews of the underground press became longer and more informative closing up in 28 pieces. The musical side is richer as well with 155 as the whole number including Ancient Cult releases naturally. In addition King served three live reports and showed one newsletter concerning exotic (as always) and totally underground bands done by Gorehound. And summing all the things up: this zine really kicked my ass delivering many sense desecrating whiles. Unfortunately this is my last adventure with the virgin’s flesh, as somehow I missed the final shot of King, impossible to get it now, I guess…
