Category Archives: End of the NWOBHM

Not even an announcement!


I wish I could tell you what my plans regarding this blog are. I don’t know myself. All I do know is that I lost interest in continuing it, since it began to feel like an obligation, like work. Stay tuned.

ANTISECT: Out from the Void 7″ (Endangered Musik, UK, 1986)


Maybe this is and always has been more of a record that I wanted to like, than one that I really did like. I don’t recall the review I wrote for my fanzine, when “Out from the Void” came out, but I tend to believe that it wasn’t bad at all. Yet, in the years […]
