=======================

- RAW POWER “Mine to kill” (extended version) digipack CD

4th and final installment of the series that sees FOAD Records re-issuing all RAW POWER‘s albums of the ’80s in their definitive, top-quality version making justice to these ageless classic… After “You are the victim” (1983), “Screams from the gutter” (1984) and “After your brain” (1986) it’s the turn of “Mine to kill” (1989), another uppercut in the jaws showing RP at the top of the game crossovering their manic riff-oriented Hardcore with the most intense and raging Thrash assault. Together with the incredible “Screams from the gutter” this is hands down the fastest and tightest delivery in the band’s discography of the first decade. As for all their previous releases on FOAD, this has been scrupulously remastered from the 1st generation master at Toxic Basement Studio, taking the original dynamics and sonic impact to the most powerful and energetic stage. And there’s more.. as special bonus you will also find a completely UNRELEASED SESSION (12 tracks!) that was the original 1st studio take of the album, made in Modena/Italy still with Helder on drums! As explained by the band: “RAW POWER began the recording of “Mine to kill” in Italy, at Umbi Studio, and when it came to an end there were discussions about the final product. The decision to re-record the album in England with a different producer saw Helder leave, the one most satisfied with the work they had just ended, and having already had a brief live experience with the other boys, Fabiano Bianco (Bloody Riot / Raff) replaced him on drums. The fourth album came out and the previous version was trashed. The bonus tracks added to this version was what would have been “Mine to kill” at the beginning, feeling like the first real attempt to change the style and understanding even more how the personalities within Raw Power differed between them, something that has always characterized the band from any other reality“. Of those 12 tracks, 4 are completely unreleased as they haven’t been re-recorded on the final version of the album, and they simply kill! Raw, aggressive and dizzyingly precise Hardcore from Italy’s most iconic band of the unforgettable “furious years”! Comes in a deluxe digipak sleeve with 11 page booklet including rare photos, flyers, lyrics and liner notes!

Price: 10 euro

S.D.I. “Bloodsucker – demo 1986″ one-sided LP out NOW!!

Posted in Releases, S.D.I. on July 29th, 2015 by foadmaster

..just got back from our insane open air festival “UNITED AS ONE Pt. II” that was really over all our expectations, we are ready to start shipping our final release of the summer. So set the time machine to 1986 and face some bloodthirsty Teutonic Speed/Thrash Metal, S.D.I.Bloodsucker – Demo 1986” LP is out now!!! It’s not the first case that we’re dealing with some classic German Metal of the 80s, remember the massive PROTECTOR demo collection “Cain and Abel” on double LP and the recently unleashed POISONSons of evil” LP, but of all the above mentioned recordings, what you’re getting this time is hands down the rarest and less known of all. So more in detail: legendary German Speed/Thrash aggressors S.D.I. (Satans Defloration Inc.) team up with FOAD to unearth their ultra-rare debut studio recording 1986, a cult session known as “Bloodsucker” Demo used only as promo to get them signed to a label for their first full length LP.

This has been re-transfered from the original reels and remixed too, as there were no decent copies around of the original mix that could be used as master. So taking it from the 1/4″ reels, you get it in the best possible sound quality thanks to the amazing restoring skills of The Hand Of Doom at Toxic Basement Studio. If you’re into classic no frills German Thrash and Speed Metal, this has the powerful and straightforward riffing assault to gnaw your neck vertebrae into a frantic headbangin’ delirium until you are ready to jump in a suicidal MEGAMOSH!! It reminds of early day Helloween (1985 EP era) and Iron Angel meet Destruction, all channelled through a more Metal/Punk infused approach. One sided LP with B-Side silkscreened in white with a rare artwork from the original promo. 4 page old school booklet/insert with extensive liner notes, the complete “Bloodsucker” promo photoset and never seen before flyers/artworks. A must have for all you maniacs into ’80s German Thrash and Speed Metal!

We’re starting to ship all the preorders today and the official release party is going to take place this Saturday in Reggio Emilia (Italy) at Lambrusco Open Air with S.D.I. themselves headlining!! After this LP we’ll get back in September with an all-italian 80s Hardcore double assault, so stay tuned!! S.D.I. is still available in two different versions, act fast to catch the limited blue vinyl versions as there aren’t many left!

CRUMBSUCKERS “Turn back time: the early years 1983-1985″ double LP+CD and double CD out now!!

Posted in Crumbsuckers, Releases on July 13th, 2015 by foadmaster

The wait is over! CRUMBSUCKERSTurn back time: the early years 1983-1985” 2xLP+CD and double CD  are finally out. We’re a bit late in announcing this (release date was set for July 9th) because we have been away for 1 week at the Obscene Extreme Festival busy with our records/merch tent. A part of preorders have been shipped already and the rest will be sent before the end of the week. There are only 15 copies left of the ultra-ltd diehard version on black n’ blue splatter vinyl so better blast at the speed of light on the shopping cart if you want to catch one!

So more in detail about the contents:

if you’re looking for crucial, full on energy 80’s New York Hardcore, then look no further!! This is the most exhaustive, high quality retrospective of the pre-”Life of dreams” recordings, 69 songs including all their Demos (the legendary “Crumbsucker cave” demo 1983, “Charge of the light brigade” Demo 1985 and two unreleased tapes 1983-1984) + a bonus CD with 3 great sounding live sets 1984-85 at CBGB‘s… one opening for the Cro-Mags!  This collection shows the band’s natural evolution from basic, no frills early ’80s Hardcore to the mad thrashing assault that made “Life of dreams” and “B.O.M.B.” two unforgettable lessons of true NYHC crossovered with technical and well delivered Metal.

All the stuff included here features their former singer David Brady, and displays embryonic versions of all those anthems that were later re-recorded on their debut masterpiece + a bunch of unreleased tracks!  As usual all the stuff here has been mastered from 1st generation tapes with extreme care and passion by the Hand of Doom @ Toxic Basement Studio, a real guarantee of quality and passion!

VINYL: Three sided double LP (one side silk-screened featuring the original Taggart’s crumb sucker art) housed in a thick gatefold jacket including rare photos, flyers and liner notes + exclusive artwork by Lucas Kalina… bonus Live at CBGB CD sealed inside of the gatefold in a 5″ cardboard sleeve!

For those who are still not familiar with this mandatory band (shame!) make sure to read this great writeup about their classic debut album “Life of dreams“, it’s the best way to get introduced to their awesome power… quote: “this was like the best of Bad Brains and Exodus rolled into one”!!!

CRUMBSUCKERS “Turn back time: the early years 1983-1985″ 2xLP+CD and double CD, pre-orders start NOW!!

Posted in Crumbsuckers, Pre Orders, Releases on June 29th, 2015 by foadmaster

It’s no secret that we are total maniacs when it comes to seminal New York City Hardcore.  You saw it with S.O.D./Crab Society North, Ludichrist and with what we still repute one of our favourite releases in FOAD‘s endless discography: CRUMBSUCKERSTurn back time: the early years 1983-1985“, a blistering 69 song marathon collecting all the band’s existing recordings prior to their legendary debut “Life of dreams“.  The first edition sold out in the blink of an eye, and due to the high demand we thought it was about time to deliver a new pressing.

Now, here’s the sad part of the story: we have sent this to the pressing plant in February ordering a stunning “Black & Blue” ltd. splatter version that had to be ready for the band’s headlining performance at this year’s Black n’ Blue Bowl in NYC…we wanted to surprise the fans and provide something exclusive for the festival.  But thanks to the shitty Record Store Day hype that keeps all vinyl factories highly congested in the early months of the year until April, we have received this just now, 2 months after the BnB festival. Bummer, but who fucking cares. What really matters is that this Hardcore classic is back in stock, there is a marvellous new splatter edition that differs from the 1st pressing and above all this time we are also making it available on CD as a double CD version housed in a multipanel digipak with a thick booklet!

So more in detail about the contents:
