Let me know how it works out for you. (Also another 11 fanzines added...)Since the summer of 2019 The Corroseum's fanzine archive has taken a step away from a mere nostalgia-trip and into something potentially useful (...or at least it will be after we've reached about a 1000 zines). Want to read every Acid-interview you can lay your hands on? Wanna see what people thought of that Syrus demo back in the days? Or do you just need to gulp down anything on Metallica or Satan's Pharynx? Play around with the box below
- Only band/artist names are indexed, and only if they are properly featured as with an interview, review or article. Note that the distinction between 'Review' and 'Article' are rather fuzzy in plenty of these publications, so keeping both those boxes checked can be a good idea if that's what you're looking for.
- The News-sections in the zines are often a hidden gold mine when it comes to obscure trivia, and is also good example of the kind of information that is not searchable in the current state of this database.
- The search isn't case-sensitive, but avoid umlauts and accents when searching, i.e. "Sortilége" and "Lääz Rockit" will yeld zero results - "Sortilege" and "Laaz Rockit" works better.
- Please report any search errors (missing results, false positives etc..) via our contact page.
Well, I'm keen to find Slaughter Tit's Breast & Milk LP now.
Sod murders, church burnings and "Cold Lake" - joke bands & zines are the real Dark Side of Heavy Metal history.
...and 33 more zines added.The Corroseum wrote:This was really tricky to work out and didn't turn out exactly like I first intended it to, but I THINK I've made some significant improvements to the image slideshows of the fanzine galleries. I've been quite displeased with how it worked in the past, especially on mobile devices and since I'm putting a lot of time and energy into this whole fanzine-database-biz atm I really needed to focus some on presentation & useability. "Simplification" has been the code-word. And Steel! As always.
In the bad, olde Before:
- Pages appeared shrinked to fit the screen. For full-size you had click the tiny "1:1"-button at the bottom, then click it again to shrink back and after that you'd be able to click the tiny "Next"-button.
- The background/gallery-page just got longer & longer with every next popup, which kept stretching the original page out of bounds. This was especially annoying when reading the zines on your phone, coz the images kept floating away into the black space of the ever-increasing gallery background...
- That thumbstrip to the left in the popup served no real purpose and just clogged up the page.
In the good olde Now:
- The page-jpg's always open in original size. No need for a shrink-to-fit function since these aren't fancy holiday photos but a tool for reading olde, poorly xeroxed mags. You can still move around the image by holding down your mouse-button/finger, and pinching to zoom in/out works fine on your phone/tab.
- Clicking outside of the image, in the dark ">>>>"-striped area takes you to the next page (sorry, I looked long & hard but couldn't find a working swipe-alternative for mobiles..). It also brings both the image and the gallery back to the top (might not work 100% on phones together w/ really large images tho'..), which means no more mile-long black backgrounds.
- Bye-bye useless thumbstrip.
Do let me know what you think + please report any errors or weirdness in the Fanzine-thread.
I Could definitely use an issue of such a classic zine like Ripping Headaches so go right ahead
