INSISION‘s Daniel has started up a publishing house called Tamara Press. His two first books as an author, "Violent Italy" and "Swedish Exploitation Cinema", were about Trash Cinema. But now he comes up with a book entitled Swedish Death Metal. Here’s what he had to tell about it: "It takes you back to a time when everything was perfect. Endless parties, exciting music, cut-and-paste artwork, unreadable logos, stage diving mayhem and just a fucking great time! I’m following the left hand path – and I will never leave it." On January 26 there will be an exclusive release-party at the classic underground-venue Kafé 44 in Stockholm. This is a night for invited oldsters only, so the place will be crawling with people from the old days. Confirmed to play are: GROTESQUE (first gig in 16 years!), NIRVANA 2002 (first gig ever!) and INTERMENT (first gig in 14 years!). For all further details check out www.myspace.com/tamarapress.
