GOLDEN LAKE PRODUCTIONS "Magazine #1 Winter/Spring 2002 "

Nice surprise for my demanding tastes...! Fraser Mc Gartland has not resisted for such temptation of transforming his regular catalogue into a professional magazine! Well done! I'd say everything is quite nice indeed, a simple lay-out without too many remarkable graphical valences, much more information than what a simple catalogue might contain but less diversity than usually preserved in a first class underground magazine. If reviews follow a clumsy line with no extended details and rather too praising, well, interviews are much more substantial than expected for a first issue and therefore you can "spoil" yourselves with nice discussion such as with bands like: APRILIE ETHEREAL, AURORA BOREALIS, ENTHRONED, BATTLE OF CULLODEN, GOREROTTED, HELLBORN, MALEDICTION, MITHRAS, BATTLE OF LARGS, MOURNING BELOVETH, MYSTICA, OBSIDIAN GATE, ORDO DRACONIS, ORPHANED LAND, THANATOSCHIZO or TVANGESTE. Mexican Scene Report is pretty "thin" but objective and that is why I can say, with no doubt, that all in all it is a successful issue having as bonus a CD compilation (including as well some bands you already had the chance to read about inside!).
