Warthog #3

Warthog magazine, issue 3 (1998)
Limbonic Art
Golden Dawn
Nocturnal Arts
+ articles on war, immigration, Finnish scene & Ragnarok, reviews


Here's another 'zine, thanks to comrade Kurgan for sending this one! Scanned by me, this is the third issue of Norwegian Warthog 'zine. I haven't seen the previous issues so can't say anything about them but this looks like a late 90's 'zine of the semi-professional, fancy but not yet over the top posh gloss & colours (like Nordic Vision for example) school. Initially I felt somewhat dissappointed by quickly browsing through, but more careful study reveals this to be a worthier read than what it first seemed. Not too many interviews, as you see, but the editor Grell states his goal was to go for quality over quantity and they are all pretty long. Even though the editor writes almost as much as the interviewees. The Windir one is a lively chat, more amusing than informative and made by the co-editor/contributor M. The special feature on Finnish bm scene was quite a surprising thing to find in a Norwegian 'zine and something that just a few years earlier would've been completely unthinkable. Well, the scene was obviously very different too and changed quickly back then. But enough from me, read it for yourself.

Thank you Kurgan and our illustrious host. The zine posts tend to draw few if any comments, but I always enjoy pawing through them, because being late to the BM party they're a valuable time capsule for me.

You might be pleased to know I've a bunch of scans in store for the future and just this week got another pile of 'zines from comrade passetiermes to scan.

One of them was in Finnish, contrary to my belief. Not sure what to do with it, I'll scan it for sure but don't know if I should post it or not. I guess people could look at the pictures or something, got another Finnish-written 'zine scanned too. I'n NOT going to tranlate them, that's sure. Unless I get really, really, really bored during midsummer (skipping the usual Nummirock festival this year) but don't see that likely.
