Letter from !$%!$%&*(*


  • Letter/envelope

    [Note: Here is some photocopied gibberish sent to MTA for your scrutiny. I like the respectful opening lines especially 'Mourning More Ancient Stuff'! You who sent this letter are far too spiritual, brilliant and cool to associate with the likes of me. This guy really put some time into this... but after reading this you will think 'What the fuck did I just read?']

    Letter from Turkey


  • Envelope/Pagan Flyer

    [Note: In honor of the approaching Thanksgiving, here is some stuff from the capital of that most holiest of holidays.]



  • 1996 Catalogue

    [Note: Is that two guys kissing?!]

    Glen Benton and Deicide


  • Photographs

    [Note: Here are some unpublished shots of Glen Benton and the band from when we interviewed them during the 'When Satan Lives' era. Despite what might be thought, Glen was a down to earth, generally cool person.]

    [Above: The guy in the lower right hand corner of the above picture is named Carl. He was an all around good guy and a cool person in the local scene. Carl was in a local death metal band called 'Lead'. One time after a local show a lot of people including myself went to a party. Carl proceeded to eat a bunch of magic mushrooms and lock himself in the bathroom. Eventually someone had to kick down the door because Carl wouldn't say anything or open the door, for all anybody knew he had killed himself or something. Well after getting the bathroom door open we found Carl eating toothpaste and muttering...

    'Come dawn we're all going to be hating life...'

    Wise words indeed! Ha!]

    [Above: Lead's 1999 first and last CD Meditation of Flesh. I have to say Lead was a pretty decent band.]

  • Flyer

    [Note: Penetrate the underground, dudes.]

    Blackest Regards from Singapore


  • Letter #15

    [Note: Here's another example of a handful of letters we received back in 1998/99 after Mourning the Ancient images were mistakenly published in a 'zine of the day, The Grimoire. To see a scan and read a little bit more about it click here.

    '666 Abvulabashyirik Hailz'? What kind of an awesome opener is that?! This silver tongued Singaporean really knows how to butter a girl up! He wastes no time talking about trivialities and gets right to the point of breasts and offering a job, the only requirements: 'extreme nudity and nature'! HAHA! (nevermind the fact that this letter was sent about six years after the Grimoire issue came out!)]



  • Flyers/Band photo

    [Note: 'Greetings to all those in hell!' Here is some Immolation material from various time periods.]



  • Flyer Cassette Cover

    [Note: While I've never heard this Slovakian band, their lyrics are cutting edge! Check out 'S/M Party': 'bruises and cool drinks, I'll sew up your vaginal aperture...' Very sexy stuff. And 'a slave with a fluffy cave' is a nice touch as well. Extra points for their band photo looking like a police rape line-up!]

    Deathlike Silence/Head Not Found


  • Sales Booklet

    [Note: The final shadows of Deathlike Silence...]
