Warthog magazine, issue 3 (1998)
+ 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.
