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
