Wolves In The Throne Room…REALLY?!


That’s right folks, this issue we were fully intent on busting the vegetables out of these young Americans and their nature metal – but walked away with a smack in the mouth! Staff Writer Will Pinfold confronted drummer Aaron Weaver to examine one of modern black metal’s most disputed bands. Thoughtful? Evocative? Or just a load of  pseudo-intellectual trash – you decide.


Screaming from the pages of Issue #42 come the likes of Polish legends Decapitated, USBM cultists Nightbringer, Israeli psych-patients Sonne Adam – and that’s not all! Glorior Belli, Sol Invictus, Midnight, Evile, Serpentcult, The Living Fields, Toxic Holocaust and Malefice also receive thorough, feature-length interrogations.


For those with more obscure tastes – our regular UGBM, Power Lines and Anger Burning sections are alive with must-hear music – all handpicked from the hidden worlds of underground black metal, power electronics and crust.


As ever, we bring you the most authentic and extensive coverage of extreme music in print history! Discover record labels, artists, industry insiders and new talent in this, the latest issue of Zero Tolerance Magazine.


We are also pleased to announce that former Deputy Editor Nathan T. Birk is now officially installed as the magazine’s Editor. After stepping in and increasing his responsibilities after last year’s editorial changes, Nathan’s work over the past 6 or so issues has been that of a virtual Editor and we think that it’s high time his title reflected the influence, blood, sweat and tears he’s poured over the pages of ZT during that time. Vision, integrity, professionalism and downright hardwork is what it takes to make a magazine stand out from the crowd and Nathan possesses all of these attributes and more (including a sense of humour when he finds the time for it!) and we’re confident that the editorial reins couldn’t be gripped by safer hands. Here’s to the future!
