STRUTTER'ZINE IS A FANZINE/MAGAZINE (PRINTED ON PAPER AND ON THE INTERNET) FROM HOLLAND, WRITTEN IN ENGLISH THAT IS ENTIRELY BASED ON AOR, MELODIC ROCK, PROGRESSIVE ROCK, POWER METAL AND RELATED STYLES. IT ALL STARTED AROUND 1994 WHEN THE GRUNGE SCENE RULED AND REAL ROCK AND ROLL HAD JUST BEEN PRONOUNCED DEAD. HOWEVER IN THE NETHERLANDS THERE WAS ONE GUY WHO DID NOT LIKE THAT FACT AT ALL AND THEN STARTED A MAGAZINE CALLED STRUTTER MAGAZINE. IN THE YEARS TO FOLLOW THE MAGAZINE DEVELOPED ITSELF TO BECOME A POPULAR READ AMONG REAL ROCK AND ROLL FANS AND IN THE LATER 90S THE WEBSITE WAS A BLESSING TO REACH EVEN MORE FANS AND NOW 12 YEARS LATER STRUTTER MAGAZINE IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL. HOPING TO BE AROUND FOR ANOTHER 12 YEARS!

We only want to help the bands and the public about this musicstyle. We only ask you to sent us money, so we can sent the issues to you, because the postal costs are very high these days. We don't make any profit with this and do NOT want to make any profit. The money is only needed to cover the (extremely) high postal costs and the print costs we make. So, sent the money to above mentioned address and you receive a copy of issue 21.
