at the moment it just seems like WACKEN - THE MAG.

Zero Tolerance has some great articles now and again, but it's typefaces are fucking horrible (and stolen from dafont.com), and it thinks it's more intelligent than it is, but I'm preferring it to Terrorizer lately.


I don't see it as Wacken - The Mag whatsoever - needs far more power metal and shit german thrash to make it happen. I think though, it's almost found that balance between Rocksound and Hammer. Personally, I'd see it in a direction similar to now but slipping in the odd curveball IDM/ambient act/something on Warp. I'd quite happily let Burial, Battles or Autechre get a page in there as long as there was some correlation with what is already being covered. They weren't far off this around the time they were featuring Boris, Sunn and Earth heavily.
As much as people are into thinking the magazine is significantly worse than it's been - the truth is, it seems healthier than ever to me, sales and promotion are surely up. The review's section is now cleaner and including more reviews. The band's being covered seems more balanced and still retains the features on some quality (subjective) acts, such as Tombs, Today Is The Day, Yob etc etc and still retains its face bands - which is what it's always done even in the day when Korn and Fear Factory were on the cover. As much as I'd like to be cynical and say the "Jordison" type interviews are garish and cliched - they are fairly interesting on some level as long as these "storylines" are in context to the music.

Actually, how many pages does Terrorizer have these days? I might have an idea.

Could somebody answer this question, please? It's relevant to this.

Thanks, Steev. So that's 112 pages all told at £4 cover price, so 3.57p per page. Now, I reckon you can get about 1,700 words per page, so what Terrorizer should do is ditch the physical paper product altogether, and sell the content online on a pay-per-article basis. I'm not prepared to fork out fucking £4 for a three-page interview, half of which is wasted as pictures and stupid sidebars, but I'd happily pay 11p to read a 5,000 word piece.

Also, they should hire me as a proof-reader. God knows they needed one last time I bought the mag.

I'm not William Shatner no matter how many times you call me "Captain" in your fantasies, Rob.

Rockarolla is much more my thing musically than T is nowadays, they had the Young Gods on the cover for fuck's sake, that's pure Terry-era Tez. I find the general reviewing style a little bland sometimes, but that's a small matter. I really need to subscribe.

Zero Tolerance has too much in the way of scowling badger faces for my liking. Does Nathan T Birk still edit it/work there? I never found fault with his enthusiasm but I found his writing unreadable, it was like the journalistic equivalent of naming Scottish towns (hammer together unlikely-sounding combinations and hope for the best).

Thank you for your balanced and incisive analysis. :lol:

I personally don't get the hate for Dominion - even just as a business move - the goth/ebm market is a HUGE one to tap into. Plus I knw plenty of metalheads/punks/alternative people who crossover into that stuff....personally I hate the shit and glad I have it all in one convenient place to skip - the missus however quite likes it.

Then it's obviously a long time since you've read a magazine.

It would be a full page of very small text.

What matters isn't word count, it's what you do with the words. Remember kids, size doesn't matter.

Nope, shape and 'aesthetics' are better than size when it comes to jubblies... you know that...

eg pert smaller ones > belly covering floppy massive ones
