Cross Of Black Steel


CROSS OF BLACK STEEL magazine is a Transylvanian zine dedicated exclusively to the underground side of the Black Metal scene! On the pages of my zine you can find only bands for which I reserve credits due to their music, underground activities and attitude! The aim of this zine is nothing but to satisfy my need of supporting bands whom records are played on my turntable and nothing more...
