The Slayer Mag Archives are opening up a little and releasing some treasure. The Norwegian/English double issue #3/4 is up for grabs this week on eBay. The A5-sized zine from early 1986 contains features and interviews with bands like Voivod, Slayer, Venom, Bathory, Possessed, and Mefisto, plus one of the very first printed features ever on Mayhem. About a year later, editor Metalion helped Mayhem get it together to release Deathcrush, the infamous mini-LP dedicated to him.
Lengthy excerpts from all twenty issues of Slayer Mag, published between 1985 and 2010, appear in the anthology METALION: The Slayer Mag Diaries, available with a free bonus embroidered Arne Babb mascot patch, from THIS LOCATION.
We are also currently producing a red hardcover reissue of SLAYER X from 1994, so CHECK THAT OUT, TOO.
