NEGURA-CENTRAL EUROPEAN IDEOLOGICAL MAGAZINE "Nr.3/March 2002 "

Well, this time, Gabi Mafa/Negru has passed beyond all expectations as the partnership with Dan F. Spataru have concretised into an issue I have only congratulations to address! Moreover, I noticed the spectrum of interviewed bands became larger and therefore the magazine attends to a greater scale of readers-fans, from the angry ones to the most melancholic Gothic-Doom Metal ones. You can find here some elegant interviews with EMPEROR, MALEVOLENCE or LUX OCCULTA, articles referring to mythologies and ancient civilizations (North American one and a first chapter about Dacians-Romanian ancestors-) and also some simple boring interviews with REBAELLIUN, BLOOD RED THRONE, AVRIGUS, ASMODEUS, INDIAN FALL, AVENGER, THYRFING or CRUACHAN.

There are reviews as well but not so great in numbers and neither in quality although there can be spoken of a sufficiency in information with reference to albums, magazines or demos. I am glad for "Negura" to have reached such level and I am sure the reactions of all who already read this very issue are pretty the same. This is the most significant step a magazine achieved so far in the metallic underground press for the last year and I believe that, at least at the debate-point, this time "Negura" excelled "Oskorei". There are, of course, some weak points but I see no reason to outline them here and I hope for the next issue to recuperate the rest of details solely an extremely fastidious person might hilariously point out. It seems like this part of Romania actually can provide publications of high quality! It is only a pity that the pages number defies unwritten laws of respectable underground! P.O.
