Well, I'm not sure how the year has gone by so quickly, but unbelieveably we're pleased to present no less than the November / December edition of the one and only Zero Tolerance Magazine! Time flies and so do the releases it would seem as album after album keeps piling in. If previous editions this year have paid their dues to some excellent artists, issue 087 is no different, though it did present its own conundrum of which artist should take centre stage on the cover - well, look to the right, you can see the problem - there are a few who could just as easily have taken the spot.... After some serious mulling over that question, we're delighted to welcome Bloodbath - and I stress 'delighted' as we almost didn't manage it as you'll read in John Norby's feature - but we're doubly pleased we took the decision as it meant that alongside a kick-ass interview, we are also able to use one of the band's striking new Steve Brown photographs on the cover; it's an issue that should be pretty hard to miss on the newssstand, don't you think?
You might also notice from the contents to the right that we have included a new regular section entitled Notes From The Underground. This section is essentially an evolution of the long-running Underground Black Metal Section; it'll take a similar approach, however, it'll follow more of a theme with each new installment to allow us to burrow below surfaces further still; this issue the theme is geographic with pre-Hispanic Mexican metal being the subject of conversation... Did you even know such a thing existed? Well you do now.
Before I shove off to get started on issue 088 - onsale 28 December 2018 - can I please direct you to the news page on this website, www.ztmag.com, where we have added a lot of extra content - from streams to additional reviews and features that, for one reason or another, didn't make it into the magazine this issue. Oh, and if you haven't done so already, check out our subscription and back issue offers in our online shop!
Until next issue...
