Distortion Faith

Distortion Faith is a hardcore punk fanzine done by Krogh (Blindead Productions) and Jocke (D-takt & Råpunk). Issues #1 through #5 also included Kårén (SMRT Records).

We have no set agenda or big plan, we simply want to make a zine that we ourselves would like to read, no krångel!

All available issues can be bought through the Blindead Mailorder and a bunch of international distros.

If you want to carry this zine in your mailorder, please contact me for trade/wholesale info or click one of the links above.
