Isten zine compilation Isten Fanzine: Don’t Break the Ghost released December 12, 2014


Svart Records will release a compilation of Isten zine from 1984-2014 on December 12, 2014. Entitled Isten Fanzine: Don’t Break the Ghost, the anthology will be published in hardcover and contain 800 pages of all things published and unpublished by Isten during those years.

Isten creator Mikko Mattila, who began the zine in his hometown of Tampere, Finland three decades ago, said, “Isten has always been characterized by murkiness and a lingering quality. Indeed, it took us nearly five years to do this anthology. It truly is a treasure chest, a time machine, and an open grave.”

    anybody remembers that great Australian black metal band called VILKATES ? And that other band Surrender of Divinity boy those are two bands we shouldn’t forget.

      Dont know Surrender of Divinity but definitely remember Vilkates. It wasnt terrible stuff but it isnt that good unfortunately. There used to be an old DLA review of Vilkates I believe, long gone now along with another decent Aussie band; Urgrund. The first Urgrund demo is worth listening to.

        Yeah. Sadly, I feel like older versions of the Anus were ten thousand time better than
        Many reviews and cool stuff are gone and you can’t even access those through Google Advanced search anymore.
        quote what Prozak wrote about Vilkates in 2002:
        “An upcoming European contender for the excessive and demonstrative form of black metal known for both its violence and good nature. “

          Huh, I knew the Merfcyful Fate reviews and a handful of others were lost but I didn’t know how many. What a shame. Hint, hint, Mr. Stevens.
