There’s a lot to be said for brevity but sometimes, quality doesn’t always supersede quantity. Either way, it’s a moot point as the zine they call Coverage doesn’t have a whole lot of either. This zine consists of six pages of reviews. Some book reviews, some CD reviews, the odd DVD review… reviews, reviews, reviews! Michael Elvidge is a decent writer but to be perfectly honest, there’s nothing overly unique about his views, the source material or this zine. It’s pretty easy to find Matt Mays and Megadeth reviews online for free so there’s absolutely no reason you should be anteing up three bones for this oh-so-thin publication. (Cameron Gordon)
