OSKOREI MAGAZINE "#6/Nov/Dec 2001 "

Lars Jamne carries on with this magazine in a very serious manner and thus I can see that the run has reached a significant increase because of a higher and higher request/demand. Notable is the quality of design that was a real concern for the editor along with his intention of "colouring" the magazine by inserting colour pages besides the regular complex cover. In fact, Oskorei Graphics has already gained an international appreciation since lots of magazines ask for Lars' skills in graphics and layout. Everything exhales professionalism entitling "Oskorei" to situate at one of the first three priceless underground publications. Unfortunately the manner of conceiving an interview is as simplistic and official as ever featuring strict questions and limited issues of debating. In counterbalance, the reviews are quite the strong point and Lars keeps a vigilant eye insisting on brutal releases full of Death and primitive Black series.

Taking in account that "Oskorei" is released once or twice per year, I guess I can confess that I find insufficient 48 pages to cover all noteworthy moments on Metal scene...yet less is always better than nothing! I suppose texts' orientation is pretty diverse so that, besides interviews with Black/Death Metal bands such as: EMPEROR, ZYKLON, THORNS, BAL-SAGOTH, IMMORTAL, DESTRUCTION, ABIGOR, USURPER, CENTINEX, SIRIUS, MANGLED, DIVINE EMPIRE, CRAFT, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER or DREAMS OF DAMNATION, there can be found others as well: MAUDLIN OF THE WELL, EVERGREY OR FOREFATHER. There is also included a material of ENSLAVED gig next to a CD compilation with 19 less known bands. Pretty much of a useful issue regarding information for all interested in extreme Metal music... I believe another "Oskorei" issue has just been released and it is time for you to take notice of it at this address: OSKOREI, PB640, Sentrum, N-5807 Bergen, Norway,
