Angel of Death zine published by Doom combined the macabre and morbid with anti-authoritarianism and direct action.

Well known for its extremely graphic photos and explicit instructions concerning the making of explosives, poisons, drugs, and sabotage devices, it can be described as a cross between zines Boiled Angel, Living In a Powderkeg and the books Ecodefense, and Poor Man's James Bond.
