Hell, yes. This German language zine is the longest-running punk/hardcore zine on the planet (“sorry @maxrnr”). Unfortunately for me, I can’t read German and can only decipher bits and pieces. Beyond that, this zine is fucking beautiful. The stark graphics are clean but exciting, with a powerful punk aesthetic. Lots of black ink and beautiful photos. Inside are all your favorite zine features: columns (one features Bandcamp reviews), interviews (Samiam, Sunn O))), Dr. Strange Records, Corporate Rock Still Sucks, Sister Disaster, Seax, Postford), record/zine reviews, art, and much, much more. Totally worth supporting for the longevity alone, but if the writing is in the same league as the visuals/content selection, this one kills it. –Buddha (Trust, Verlag, Postfach 11 07 62, 28087 Bremen, Germany,
