How many of you knew that Mortiis aka Håvard Ellefsen had a fanzine from 1990-1992? Ellefsen has now teamed up with Cult Never Dies (who also published the Mortiis book “Secrets Of My Kingdom”) to reissue the two issues put out back in 1991 and 1992.

The reissued fanzine issues come as a hardback titled “Z.A.S.T. Zine Anthology 1990-1992” holding over 130 large format (A4) pages. For those who wonder, Z.A.S.T. stands for the delicate title of ‘Zombie Anal Sex Terror’. Total oldschool cut and paste fanzine capturing the vibe of the time.

This is the fifth book in the Underground Archives series out via Cult Never Dies and can be ordered right here.

Includes interviews with: Grave, Blood, Samael, Carcass, Beherit, Masacre, Abruptum, Mortician, Cathedral, Varathron, Sarcófago, Unleashed, Carbonized, Agothocles, Phlegathon, Old Funeral, Nocturnus, Thyabhorrent, Bolt Thrower, Shub Niggurath, Cannibal Corpse, Disembowelment, Sadistik Exekution, Necrophiliac, Revenant, Satanic Death, Baphomet, Pyathrosis, Transgressor, Disgrace, Disharmonic Orchestra, Toxodead, Pungent Stench, Cemetary, Necrofist and more plus reviews, articles and a new interview with Mortiis from 2021.

Here’s a sample of what to expect.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
