For fans of the 1980s-1990s metal magazine in Houston, TX.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, this was a regular metal magazine that you could get for free at record stores in Houston.

Every concert and new record release was in it. Not only that, but it covered penetrating topics -- much like the Metal AE -- such as the history of metal, music theory, what defined metal, genrology, the spirit of metal and the clash between metal and the counter-culture as well as the pop-culture above it.

The website has a comprehensive archive of their late 1980s and early 1990s issues, which focus on a mixture of heavy metal, speed metal and the birthing of death metal. The approach is professional even if the methods are homebrew.

    This album is for you if you like modern death metal and enjoy deep/harsh vocals, a rich variety of guitars riffs within a single track, enhanced bass presence and solid drumwork with lots of cymbals. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/sunlightreality
