METAL COMMAND (Malaysia)
Issue #1, 2001
Interview with Sil Khannaz, Almarhum, Pyron, The Raven, Euthanasia,
Kremation, Samartary, Astaroth, Shamanic Rites (Malaysia), Azaghal, Devilry
(Finland), Unseen Darkness, Kuburan, Kremush (Indonesia), Sadistory, Eternal
Throne, Bunuh, Erebus (Singapore) Paganizer (Sweden), Krvestreb (Turkey),
Feeble Minded (Czech), Effluvium (Philippines). I am surprised at first,
looking at the front cover. Its in color. And about the the content, the
interviews are just ordinary and not interesting. Typical questions and you
will get typical answer except for some bands that answer it interestingly.
What makes this zine a lot better than other Malay-written zine is the
review is like a review. Most the zine here don't know how to review and
usually their review is just like words for flyers or words taken directly
from flyers. That show most of the editosr lack of lots of thing that an
editor should have. Writing something in Malay should not be that hard
because Malay-language is their mother tongue and these guys in METAL
COMMAND show they a bit better than the rest. Only the interview should be
improved. They should study a bit about the band and the music to create an
interesting and informative interview.
