OVERGROWN TOMB #4 : free, 8 ½” x 11”, photocopied, 12pgs.

Overgrown Tomb is a zine based just outside of Philadelphia that showcases local Philadelphia bands. This particular issue interviews the bands On Top, Brutus, and Ashencult. On Top is a rock/metal band, and they mostly talk about keeping the rock tradition going and their second upcoming album. Brutus is a rock band from the Czech Republic and they talk about how their new album did that year and their future plans. Ashencult is a black metal band from Philadelphia, and one of my personal favorite local bands. The interview questions range from influences of the occult to the release of the first album (which is amazing). There is also a featured album at the end. It’s a very short read, but the interviews are interesting and give you insight into what makes those band tick. –James Meier (Overgrown Tomb, 3959 Welsh Rd. #187, Willow Grove, PA19090)
