It’s our 20th online anniversary today! Twenty years ago, exactly on this day, VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE returned to the scene as an online zine. What originally started out as a column in the German Metal magazine Horror Infernal (1991 – 1993) finally ended up becoming a print zine on its own in 1993, with 10 issues released until 1997. After that we needed a three year break in which we released the first 4 issues of Snakepit zine, with a focus on traditional Metal. But already in mid 2000 we were hungry enough again to return to the more brutal types of Metal, so on December 04, 2000 our first online interviews popped up at the already defunct members.tripod.com/vftd domain. It didn’t take long until we switched that to www.voicesfromthedarkside.de and have stayed there ever since.
On February 12, 2021 Signal Rex will release “Beinarúga”, the debut EP from international Funeral Doom Metallers NATHR, on CD and cassette tape formats. It will feature the following tracks: ‘Beinahrúga’, ‘Tenebra Mundi’, ‘Into The Void’ and ‘Vado Mori’. You can already check out ‘Tenebra Mundi’ over here. The band’s international line-up consists of Northr (Dutch) – guitars, bass, synths and soundscapes, Nathas (Italian) – vocals and lyrics and Ond (Norwegian) – drums.
