From the Editor:

The website should be updated within a few weeks....I've had
to look for a new service provider, come up with the cash,
and get it all set-up....The Underground Records website
will have the complete Top 100 updated, plus a new SERMON
webzine and a new UNDERGROUND SOUND webzine within a month's
time.

underground.records@russia is gone....long live
underground@space

that being said........

WANT TO GO TO LOS ANGELES?

If you're tierd of your situation, the scene, whatever, and
have a vehicle that will make it from Atlanta (or where ever
you're at to Atlanta then) to Los Angeles California I will
pay for gas and lodging accomadations going out there. I have
a couple of guitars, some special effects and a few suitcases
full of songs that make a bus/plane/train trip a royal pain.

You'll need a decent car, truck or van. If you need tires or
tuneup we can work that out too....

Even if you don't want to stay, believe me, it'll be a trip to
be remembered. If you're up for it, we can leave whenever.....
get in touch.

2000 DECIBEL
The festival that supports Swedish Metal

The third edition of the 2000 Decibel-festival will be held on
May 18th 2002 in Bengtsfors, Sweden (180 km north of
Gothenburg). Fourteen bands will play on two different stages.
What makes 2000 Decibel special is the fact that it is the
only festival that is totally dedicated to Swedish Hardrock
and Metal. If you visit the festival you will get the chance to
see some of the best bands that Sweden has to offer.

The previous festivals have gained a lot of attention from all
over the world. We have had visitors from, as far away as,
Canada, New Zeeland, USA, Switzerland, Mexico, Germany, England
and Holland. Not that surprisingly, considering that bands like
In Flames, Candlemass, The Haunted, Lefay, Therion, Tiamat, The
Crown, John Norum, Dark Tranquillity and Nocturnal Rites have
played.

We can now present the first bands for next year's festival. T
hey are Spritual Beggars, Soilwork, Evergrey, Lost Horizon and
F.K.Ü. Expect more to come.
