Malaysian label Afterlife Productions has restored and reprinted Southeast Asia’s first black metal zine, Thy Invocation of Hell. It’s packed with interviews from tons of legendary bands, all conducted in their early and formative years, before wannabe rockstar egos and commercialism took hold. Buy it. From the label’s Facebook page:
Afterlife Productions extremely presents:
THY INVOCATION OF HELL (1995 Black Metal Grimoire)
The first South East Asia’s Black Metal manuscript ever (edited by Vulga vocalist; The Baron). Originally unleashed in 1995. Featuring interviews with countless of Black Metal bands from the second wave (read description below). Most of the interviews were conducted around 1992 until 1993 at the beginning of Black Metal important years. This zine got delayed and was not released until 1995 because Black Metal became commercial (since Euronymous killed in August of 1993). Only a handful of copies got printed during 1995 and most of them spread around the local scene here only. It also features tons of important Black Metal flyers, posters, bands’ original biography, etc. from all over the world that were spread back then (the old days) through letter correspondence. Now it’s time for the worldwide extreme Metal collectors to be able to read it!
