STEEL MADNESS (Malaysia)
Issue #1, November 2002
Steel Madness magazine is back with another great issue. Although the release has been delayed for quite some time, it didn't affect the whole contents because the magazine is packed with lots of good information. The size of the magazine is getting small (folded A4 size) but the page has increased (96 pages). More contributors have joined the magazine this time (including me). Some great artworks are also featured in this magazine. 16 interesting interviews with Apocalyptic Raids, World Chaos Prods, Bloodcult ,Ugra Karma, As-Sahar, Malefactor, Authority, Tasyim, Suffocated Art, Dusk, Rebaelliun, Hyponic, Inhumate, Arum, Revenge and Impiety. Tons of album reviews, around 64 magazine reviews + some cassettes, vinyl, split releases and compilation reviews. The best of all is the Sabbat Mania! review made by the editor himself. There are also 2 great scene reports (China and Thailand). Thailand scene report is the best report in this issue (made by Slava Fanzine/Productions owner). The highlight in this mag is a tribute-type report on Singaporean Metal Scene called "Singapore: A Look Into The Past". All in all this is a great magazine and it can be yours for USD5/RM8. Oh yeah one more thing, there is also a poster of the legendary Langsuir included in this mag.
