As I dig into the DEMOLISH vaults, I will post random interviews, articles, reviews etc. Eventually I will work my way through the first two issues. It appears that blogs such as this are the new [online digital] magazines and physical print magazines are dropping like flies. Of course we have Decibel and Revolver covering the new bands, but what about the 80′s scene and current 80′s revival? That’s where we step in!
Here’s the scoop:
DEMOLISH was a dedicated Metal Music fanzine that I started back in the day (late 80′s) but was put on “permanent hold” when I was not able to secure funds prior to printing. Unfortunately this was after many people contributed articles, submitted killer artwork, wrote reviews, attended concerts and took amazing pic’s etc.
Believe me, I wasn’t very happy with the result either. All of us worked pretty much non-stop on this project for well over a year and a half! In any event, we are alive and online now.
Are you ready for a kick-ass “blast-from-the-past”?
If so, then dig out those albums (yes — I said albums) and dust off those old cassettes, try on that old Metal jean jacket (you know — the one with no sleeves and covered with your fav. band’s patches and buttons) and hopefully you will enjoy this chunk of Metal history!
So what makes us different?
You may notice this at the end of our articles:
*In order to transport you directly back to the eighties (i.e. 87′ – 89′ to be exact) we will continue to keep the language in the posts “present tense” even though this is 2009. None of these articles, interviews and reviews have ever been published! I plan to keep them in their original form.
I thought this would be way cooler than always saying “back in the day” or “this is the way it was back when…” over & over ad nauseam.
We will also try to track down the original artist that was featured for a current update and post current links where possible. If you know, or have a way to contact any of these bands, then by all means please forward our links and have them get back in touch with us as we would love to hear from them!
Thanks again and enjoy the site!
