A5 ♦ 64 pages ♦ recycled heavy paper ♦ Limited to 380 copies ♦ 23 participants

Issue Zero released in the begining of 2022 (edited in 2021)

An independent fanzine to share our passion for black metal, desecrating conservative ideals of purity in this genre, profaning its codes to reclaim its subversive spirit.

 » No fun, No profit, No ads, No NSBM « 

Our pages are mainly devoted to women and queer folks contributions because, in some metal subgenres, most of the medias are run by men who promote their peers, gatekeeping. However, the taste for auditive violence, the unbridled expression of destructive will, dreadful wrath and rough negative art are not the prerogative of some chauvinists.

Issue #0 Summary


Our first issue is raising money for abortion access in Europe.

This is a non-profit zine : we all work unremunerated, even the editor/graphist/publisher.

A part of the sales of the first issue goes to printing costs and distribution fees, the other will be donated to Abortion Without Borders, an initiative of six NGO from european countries, working together to help people access abortions at home with pills or abroad in clinics, while Polish state denies this vital right.

No Fascism / No racism / No homophobia / No transphobia / No sexism

Despite all of our attention, if you find content not in line with that, please inform us.

Black Metal (No NSBM) / Blackenend punk / blackened Grindcore / Doom / Sludge / Death Metal / & experimental extreme music (violent noise, power electronics).

You can also ask : Booker, producer, tech, radio or label owner personal view of their work, of the scene …

Stryga prioritize projects including POC, women (trans/cis) & non-binary musicians, because we don’t find in other music zines the real diversity of people bringing the underground alive :

There are already plenty of Metal zines talking about white cis men projetcs only, without aknowledging it (so if you think our selection is unfair, the majority of zines selection should also be). Nevertheless, the main criterion is still the music quality or originality regarding the subgenres we chose to promote … and that is subjective as f**k.

FORMAT : Text in open document format (.odt or .word). No more than 2500 words.

Before interviewing a project for Styga, you can ask us to be sure we will publish it [Some cool bands we’d love to promote : Trespasser, Iskra, Nachtlieder, Turia, Illmara, Coltsblood, Völva, Ragana, Taurus, Body Void, Toul en Ihuern, Fayenne, Bismuth, Tridroid Recs … and a lot more !]


Text about Mythology, Folklore, Sociology, Art history, Geology, Botany, Cinema, Literature, Witchcraft, Dissent … if you can link the subject to Metal culture, its philosophical inspiration, its dark imagery.

FORMAT : Text in open document format (.odt or .word). No more than 2500 words.


Drawings, photos, engraving in a Black Metal esthetic. We encourage dark art with a high black and white contrast, medieval engraving style, cathartic bestial illustrations, pictures with occult and witchcraft references …

No sexism / No Fascism / No racism / No homophobia / No transphobia.

Our underground scenes are parasitized by mainstream conservative standards : don’t let them spread.
