Buried Zine is a demoniacal, cosmic terror, an atrophying shambling mess of paralyzed organs evacuating putridity. Each volume of uncorporeal life is hand bound and lovingly laid out akin to a medieval illuminated text.

The Buried Zine compendium is a facsimile reprint of the first six volumes, originally published between 2010 and 2016 all long sold out. The layout and materials of each issue have been carefully recreated for this one-off reprint. The compendium also features a new cover illustration, audio essay and photography through out the book. This unique publication is printed in a strictly limited run of 250 copies and will not be reprinted, Buried Zine compendium is scheduled for release in March 2023.

The compendium includes 39 Interviews with underground extreme metal bands from all over the world, including musicians from Japan, Russia, Indonesia, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Thailand, Finland, Sweden, the Philippines, USA and the UK. The compendium features interviews with scene metal luminaries such as WORMED, Ingested, Liturgy, Midnight Odyssey, and Viscera Infest early in their careers. Many interviewees were interviewed in English for the first time, including Viscera Infest, Digging Up, and Needle Contaminated Pork. Buried worked with translators to make these interviews possible.

This meticulously produced publication also features 19 artists’ commissions, including illustrations, fiction, essays, VR experiences, sound art, and scripts. The artists commissioned include metal illustration legend, Mark Riddick (Autopsy, Dying Fetus, and Justin Beiber) and Turner Prize-winning artist Tai Shani, who’s first fiction works were produced for Buried and available again in this reissue. Each volume, previously distributed in strictly limited print runs of 50 or fewer, is now collated into this unique facsimile reprint.

Each copy of the zine compendium will include the audio, video and virtual reality commissions on a USB flash drive, as well as the new audio essay.
