Spectrum: Ambient/ Industrial/ Experimental Music Culture Magazine was one of the most well respected underground zines dealing with post-industrial music in the late 1990s to early 2000s, with a particular focus on the dark ambient, death industrial, heavy electronics, power electronics, neo-classical, martial industrial and neo-folk genres.

This book reproduces facsimile pages of all five issues of the rare, out of print issues of Spectrum Magazine, plus the unpublished issue No 6. It also includes much new material that puts the music scene and its culture into perspective.

I can only recommend Spectrum — one of the best print mags in this genre.Tesco Organisation Germany
