My Dying Bride
Circle of Jormungandr
+Irish scene report (yeah, yet another!), Nomicon article, A tribute to Ernst Jünger & reviews
Zine post, this is another item sent to me by comrage Kurgan, thank you! Oversized images sloppily scanned by me. This is the fourth issue for the German quite well-known Moondance fanzine, sorry magazine, spanning over 70 pages with a quite nice semiprofessional lay-out which fortunately remains readable instead of going utterly crazy with font experiments and crap under the text things. Despite the main editor Timo Kölling gradually slipping into the artsy, unique snowflake route on his preferences (most notable in the reviews section, "jewels" part of which especially) I actually quite enjoyed the 'zine. Two contributors for the issue, first Maírtín Mac Cormaic of Waylander who, predictably enough, provided the Irish scene report (possibly the most often featured scene report target in the 90's or at least so it felt like) and Francesco Parmigiani, who used to do Savage Garden/Vampiria 'zines interviews Tunrida & My Dying Bride. Most interviews are good and well-enough answered, even the Varathron one has quite long replies. Recommended if you like later 90's 'zines and/or have interest in the scene of those days.
