BLACK GLOVE 'ZINE #1&2 combo pack
beyond being a great friend and writer, coach springer is one of the oldest, truest, dyed in the wool metal heads i know. years of talking shit about metal eventually turned into talking shit about doing a metal zine together. after a lot of back and forth, we finally pulled the trigger.
BLACK GLOVE #1 is a 24 page, 8.5" x 5.5" B&W photocopy zine. first released in april 2016, it features interviews with texas sludge masters CRAWL and HOLY MONEY, an interview on bootleg embroidered patch-making with VISIONS OF THE SINISTER PRODUCTIONS, a lengthy dissertation on why JUDAS PRIEST's "point of entry" is their best and most overlooked album, as well as live photos and requisite album reviews. originally released in an edition of 100 with black covers, this 2nd grey-cover printing is issued in an edition of 50 specifically for this package.
BLACK GLOVE #2 follows the same format as issue 1, but is ramped up to 28 pages. first printed in july 2016 in an edition of 100, this issue contains interviews with canadian CBG BM unit LYCAON, houston crushers KRVSHR, the second installment in bootleg patch-making with ireland's BELKOT, plus more live photos, record reviews, and a few other surprises.
