That's it. Nuclear Abominations rag. Home of unbearable horror, undescribable torment and uncoveted blasphemy. What is Nuclear Abominations about? Big question. Nuclear Abominations has always been and will always stay an underground expression of feelings, interests and ambitions that rotate around one thing: the extreme. What, in the world of today rappresents more the freedom of expression, the involvement in a commot scene, friendship, technical skill and mutal support than the Death metal scene? Nothing IMHO. Underground is made up of a lot of different scenes. Hard-core, sculpture, free jazz, movies... everything symbolizing some sort of expression directly taken to your home, by the guy that created it, and not through some multinational giant, is underground. Underground is collaboration, inventive and total lack of restraining inhibitions. The PEARL JAM, TOOL or CRADLE OF FILTH CD you buy in a shop for 30 dollars is NOT underground. The discos crammed with adolescents wearing KORN shirts are NOT underground. Reading Herman Hesse and Baudelaire books and staring depressed at the autumn sky is NOT underground. Writing of vampires and reading Stephen Kings books as only source of culture is NOT underground (that doesn't mean I don't like S.K., just it's not the only horror writer I know), buying pop-art books and idolizing some alternative communist movie is not underground. And it's not cool either. It's just a trend. Death Metal is not a trend, REAL Death Metal has never been, so shup that fuck up and write a letter to some ditribution, rabbit.

 

Nuclear Abominations rag's very first issue. After having been co-operating with Litanie De'Dumuzi from 1994 to 1996 with his Hellflame Magazine, I decided to give abnormal birth to my own rag. So I started working on it in 1996 but i postponed the release for months due to the same old problems. Finally the first issue was released around September 1998. The interviews, being rather old, resulted absolutely boring and short in my opinion, therefore they have been bettered in both length and controversialism. Nonetheless, some people appeared to actually like it, in particular Billy Nocera of Razorback rec. and Richard Cee of Wild Rags. Inties featured are AUTUMN LEAVES, CANNIBAL CORPSE, CORPSEVOMIT, FLESHGRIND, IMMOLATION, IMPERIAL FOETICIDE, INSATANITY, MUCUS MEMBRANE, NASUM, TANATHOLOGIST, REGURGITATION, REINCARNATION, CSSO, DYING FETUS, ROTTING FLESH, Invasion records and Grindwork prod.
