Zines and Magazines
////ALL WRITTEN IN SPANISH////The book itself has some 200 handsomely illustrated pages and it’s full of images from the period. It reminds you of the countless fanzines that circulated around that time (yeah, the pre-computer era’ when you actually had to put talent into doing covers or fanzines, do your own drawings and put it altogether by yourself). With all the modern hi-tech stuff I have to say the aesthetics from the period remain unmatched by any of the current records or magazines. Another plus for me, is that it is a real attempt to take the scene seriously —which existed out of Santiago —a massive achievement in a country which is so centralised as Chile (yeah, you know that in Valparaiso there was a scene, but after all this city is just 1 and a half hours from the Capital). Bands from all of our national territories get space here. Whether you know much or little about the Chilean scene, it doesn’t matter. You will still enjoy this book since it was not written for train spotters. This is all about metal and how a tiny scene — a heroic bunch of people, built a scene with little to no resources in the most adverse circumstances you can think of! It also captures the spirit of the time and allows the people who were part of that movement to speak for themselves. This is a highly subjective book and that’s the whole beauty of it. We all saw things are own way, we all understood the movement our own way and we all got something different out of it. For myself, I can say that thanks to metal and what it meant. I learned to have an independent stance and surely I can say it gave me a sense of being able to create something, to organize stuff (when my class mates were just doing what they were supposed to do). We were different, we were unexpected, we could break the bleeding mold. I’m sure this was experienced by others, but in their own particular way…we all related to it.Expand
