VAMPIRIA MAGAZINE "#6 June 2002 "Beloved Apocalypse""

Francesco, you definitely involve your soul and heart in what you do, there is no doubt! This last issue is not much different from the previous one, at least not as far as the imagery is regarded! I notice a good change, in better, in interviews quality and I refer especially to the one with BATHORY, which I find the most intriguing one...I think the frank mature dialogue has the gift of dispelling the confusion and drastically straightening out reality from myth and idolatry. The interview with DEINONYCHUS is not bad either but I don't understand why present here since I remember of it being included within magazine's pages in times before yet...since his label offered Marco a contract... Anyway, I think it is a kind of lousy miserable promotion of which place here...I still have difficulties in understanding. THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, TCHORT, PENTAGRAM, SHINING, CRUACHAN, DIABOLICUM, MALOMBRA, JUDITH, CENTURIAN are some other interviews included here, more or less interesting or well achieved. Reviews chapter can easily attract readers' interest...still, for this time, the author preferred, probably in a hurry, a similar structure I used as well in my last issue: style, details and vote... From what I see, we come to have in common matching tastes except that Francesco's euphoria manifests more often and easier in superlatives addressed to the reviewed bands. If there is something to have bothered me at this very issue, I think it concerns editor's positivism next to the music he listened to and probably abundant advertising spaces. As for the rest, "Vampiria" starts to find its own identity and moreover, Francesco becomes more and more professional. For those who decide to pay the insignificant price of 5 $, I tell you this: it comes along with 2 certified CDs featuring over 40 Metallic underground bands. . Francesco Palumbo, P.O.
