BLACK GLOVE ZINE issue 1


beyond being a great writer and friend, coach springer is one of the truest, dyed in the wool, dictionary definitions of what it means to be a metal head. after watching some time of grand schemes and shit talking pass by, we've finally put our collective heads together to release the first issue of our metal fanzine BLACK GLOVE. a departure from the art-centric content and hand-cut collage discipline of previous HATEFUCK zines, BLACK GLOVE focuses more on the word and the music, while maintaining a certain sense of GIVE UP visual aesthetic. issue one is a 24 page, 8.5"x5.5" B&W photocopy zine housed in a black-on-black heavy card cover. featured are interviews with sludge masters CRAWL and new HATRED SURGE off-shoot HOLY MONEY, an interview with bootleg embroidered patch-maker VISIONS OF THE SINISTER PRODUCTIONS, coach's lengthy dissertation on why JUDAS PRIEST's "point of entry" is their best and most overlooked album, as well as live photos and record reviews spanning traditional american metal, hard rock, death metal, black metal, grind, and noise. first printing of 100 is in the webstore now:
