ZT PREMIERE NEW SONG FROM KALEIKR

ZT are pleased to team up with Debemur Morti to present a new song from Kaleikr entitled Neurodelirium. Taken from their forthcoming debut album, Heart Of Lead, it shows tinges of their black metal past, but now fused with a progressive death metal edge to form a multi-dimensional assault with traces of Gojira, Deathspell Omega and even Opeth in places, but nevertheless finds its own method to open your third eye. Recorded, mixed & mastered by Stephen Lockhart at Studio Emissary, the album features 7 hymns that possess the depth of feeling present in the finest Icelandic Black Metal: 1. Beheld At Sunrise 2. The Descent 3. Of Unbearable...

PEACEVILLE’S MASSIVE MAYHEM BOX SET REVIEWED!

MAYHEM CURSED IN ETERNITY – BOX SET PEACEVILLE Nb: This review features in issue 088, however, some numpty managed to use the wrong image to accompany the text. It is shown here with the correct imagery. Before 1988, Euronymous and Necrobutcher had steered Mayhem from playing covers through to the instrumental Pure Fucking Armageddon demo and the excellent Deathcrush in 1987. But it was the following year, with the arrival of vocalist Dead and drummer Hellhammer that one of the band’s more significant eras, in terms of infamy and musical heritage, coalesced. Cursed In Eternity commemorates this era in lavish fashion. A vinyl box...

Issue 088, the Jan/Feb 2019 edition of Zero Tolerance is due to go onsale later this week! It’ll be onsale a few days later than anticipated as the Christmas break caused a few logistical hold-ups, which means that although it’s ready, it’s still got to be delivered into retailers, which it’s doing over the course of the next few days.  As well as featuring Greece’s Rotting Christ on the cover, and an illuminating interview with manmain Sakis Tolis about the band’s life and times, this edition also contains our writers’ Top 20 Releases of 2018 – which always make for an interesting read....
