ANCIENT CEREMONIES "issue 11, September-December"

Nuno Santos seems to take his job seriously and thus a brand new issue is released every four months! As usually, there is a way too much advertising, but you can find here some interesting but succinct interviews with bands such as: GOD DETHRONED, BARATHRUM, ONDSKAPT, INFERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION, NOVEMBERS DOOM, ETERNAL GRAY, ARKHON INFAUSTUS, ABORTED, THE KOVENANT, AMON AMARTH, KONKHRA, SEAR BLISS, SEPTIC FLESH, PSYPHERIA or PERISHED. Do not get worried, there are plenty reviews as well (over 200) well written and as a fact, I appreciate that even if there are many editors, each of them is focused on a certain style so that the reader wouldn't get confused or bothered. As far as my magazine is regarded, Nuno doesn't exactly keep it close to his heart but the way he expresses such is indeed so diplomatic! I do respect his point of view even if we actually have different points of view referring to the manner of promoting Metal. Well, the imagery is professionally and elegantly conceived but I cannot help myself in noticing it actually has no identity only following the line of all "big" popular and commercial magazines. You can benefit of a free CD as well, which is something nice and therefore it might justify every penny you pay! If up to me, this kind of magazine might get important solely as far as information is regarded but otherwise it really doesn't touch me the way "Imhotep" does, for example! Well, it is pretty obvious, anyone can settle a set of questions, with no further research or else and then publish so that he would be trendy... fashionable! Good for him as long as money and interest don't miss the picture!
