DEPRAVED LITERATURE XI: Tough Riffs #4
It's great to see such activity from Tough Riffs zine and issue number four already printed. My joy is even bigger, because I think this certainly is the best work so far from Dima. Style wise, this new issue is very similar to the previous, third chapter of Tough Riffs. Black / white colouring, simple, but good looking, tidy layout, some nice additional artwork. It just looks very properly. But interviews... well, there are some of the best chats, which Dima has done so far. More so, he invited some truly killer bands for his fourth issue, so I've read the whole zine with great joy and interest. Best chats? Definitely with Immolation (I was surprised that Ross Dolan still replies e-mail interviews and gives such long and interesting answers!), (again, very long answers, cool!), Rude, Skeletal Remains, , Church of Disgust... But really, every interview here is special. I enjoyed them all. On top of that, there's an article about Deicide's "Legion" and new column "News from Beyond", which gives you short presentation and news about young, yet unknown bands. Still no reviews in Tough Riffs, but I don't really care. Cool stuff and nice professional print. Issue #5 has already been announced by the way!
Whole program of Tough Riffs #4 is: AUTOPSY, WOMBBATH, CEREMONY, OBITUARY, UNDERGANG, BEHEADED, ACROSTICHON, BRODEQUIN, CARNAL TOMB, CHRUCH OF DISGUST, RUDE, SKETAL REMAINS, PUTRID PILE.
