Quotes and Comments:
“A welcome return of underground yet pro-printed magazines after the absence of the days from greats Spectrum, Degenerate, Descent, Bannanfish, Judas Kiss, Denshi Zatsuon, ND, Scraps of Paper and even early issues of Resound and catalogs from RRR, Artware, SFCR, etc . while xerox will always be the most sacred of all zines formats all print is welcome in the era of online corruption that has eroded every facet of society. Keep up the important work”. -Dominick Fernow/ Prurient / Hospital Productions
“You did it again. Again a wonderful journal documenting a niche of underground culture while being a cultural document itself. Again the quality of analysis remains high although the magazine gets thicker and thicker issue by issue. It’s certainly a lot of work but everything’s accomplished with knowledge and lifeblood, one can read line by line”. – Karin / Galakthorrö
“After a couple of months in my possession, I finally got the chance to go through the complete new issue of Noise Receptor. Mr. Stevenson, of Spectrum magazine fame, overdid himself with a bulk of interviews and reviews that keep up the expectations I had after the two excellent previous tomes. Differently by most today’s superficial underground magazines voted to hip minimalism and non-sense, Noise Receptor stands out and enters the category of “things you will read and re-read hundreds of time”, thanks to thorough sincere reviews (a section I gladly skip most of the time in other occasions) and in depth interviews. I can proudly state Richard conducted one of the most intense interrogatories I have ever been submitted to, and the same is valid for the superb discussions to Kristian Olsson, Puce Mary, etc. I really enjoyed the GO special, a project I will never fail to praise… Not one single second of boredom despite the many pages…. So, highly suggested and I really hope we won’t have to wait too long for issue 4!” – Marco Deplano / Wertham
“Noise Receptor, as well as it’s predecessor Spectrum, has always been one of the most quality driven, pure industrial zines in existence, but issue 3 goes even further; full color, twice the size, concise layout and super in depth reviews and interviews. And hey, the back page color ad for Malignant looks super sexy too! This issue features artwork and cover by Kristian Olsson/Alfarmania/Survival Unit, an interview with the same, as well as with Wertham, Puce Mary, Fieldwork, Aischrolatreia, and a profile of Genocide Organ. Chock full of reviews and stuff to look at and read, this is a necessary documentation of the current underground industrial scene”. – Jason Mantis/ Malignant Records
