DOMAIN ZINE (Singapore)
Issue #1, 2000

A good debut issue. Almost good xerox quality and the layout is quite neat. 52 A4 pages and the interviews are with TASYIM, ABATTOIR, KAMBING, NARRATOR, SAKRAMOTH, BEAST PETRIFY, NETHEREALM, SARANG MAUT ZINE, METAL MAFIA ZINE, DARK TRANQUILITY, THE GRIMOIRE OF THE EXALTED DEEDS, ABYSSOS, PATCH STUFF, HAYAGRIVA, ZUBIRUN and GEMATRIA. Also included an article on a serial killer named Richard Ramirez and ofcourse the usual stuff, the reviews. I think the column for the interview should be made more than 2 column per page. It will look nicer I guess. I can find any fault in this debut issue except for the xerox quality. Everything else is just okay for me. This issue is no longer for sale. So wait for the next issue which I think will be better than this one.
4/5

DOMAIN ZINE (Singapore)
Issue #2, 2001

60 xerox A4 pages. Syaiful did improve a bit on the layout and a bit better than the previous issue but it can be better than now. Interview with Calvaria, Depression, Doxomedon, Misfortune, Abvul Abashy, Eternal Oath, Twin Obscenity, Nocturnal Winds, Surrender Of Divinity, Kibosh Sibyl Kismet, Immortal Rites, Ledo Takas Mag., Bastardized, Requiem, Impiety and Fenrir. And the interesting part is the column called "From The Dark Past" featuring interview with Singapore bands made in early 90's taken from other zines (Belial, Seventh Gates, Silent Sorrow, Debauchery, Beheaded Nasrani, Behemoth and Blood Angel). Quite original I think. It will be great if the pictures are printed clearer but since it is a xerox publication, I can't hope much. Everything is almost fine if the printing shop did not fucked up with the front cover. They must be Christian I guess and very unprofessional at work.
