Petrified 'zine #1
Release Date: 8/93
Printed at 100 copies ONLY.
Trivia: I hand drew the logo but I never used it again.
More Trivia: I wanted to use an extreme image, but I couldnt think of anything extreme to use. So I drove around town until I found a burned trailer home and tooks pix of it for the cover. I then scanned and rescanned the cover until the quality diminished.
Even More Trivia: Issue #1 sold so poorly that I almost gave up doing the 'zine. I sold 30 copies in 1 year. Things finally changed once word of mouth spread.
TRIVIA! Petrified 'zine #1 was the first place to find BURZUM Lyrics! It was an exclusive for my debut issue.
MORE FUCKING TRIVIA: I was interviewing SAMAEL in person at the RITZ in TAMPA and didnt like their answers and wording towards Black Metal so i walked away from them.
Interviews with: Burzum, Samael, Abigail, Uncanny and Argentum.
