NASTY SAVAGE “Wage of mayhem + rarities ’83-85” gatefold LP and HIRAX “Born in the streets 1983-84” LP (2nd pressing): preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Hirax, Nasty Savage, Pre Orders, Releases on October 8th, 2019 by foadmaster

After 4 months drilling your ears with hyper-speed extremities of all sorts, we’re back to focus on a different beast that is equally dear to all of us here at F.O.A.D.: old school Metal! And we’re doing it with two classic bands that according to our taste delivered some of the greatest demotapes in the history of American Metal: NASTY SAVAGE and HIRAX! Ok, nothing particularly new with HIRAX / L.A. KAOS, this is the 2nd pressing of “Born in the streets 1983-1984” LP (originally released on FOAD in 2018) with different colors on the front/back and on the ltd splatter vinyl version, we’re doing this at popular demand because the first run was sold out in few weeks, so many didn’t get the chance to catch it in time. However, to match the greatness of Katon’s pioneering works, we picked another US legend that deserves the same amount of worship and quality-treatment.. the mighty NASTY SAVAGE from Florida! We’re honored to announce a deluxe reissue of their cult demotape “Wage of mayhem” enriched by a selected choice of rare and unreleased tracks from their early times. So NASTY SAVAGEWage of mayhem + rarities ’83-85” gatefold LP and HIRAXBorn in the streets 1983-84” LP (2nd pressing) are up for preorders! Needless to say that there are limited splatter vinyl versions that won’t last for long, so you better move fast! The official release date for both is set for October 21st 2019.

More in detail about each release:

NASTY SAVAGE “Wage of mayhem + rarities 83-85” LP + 2 booklets (F.O.A.D. 175)

NASTY SAVAGE‘s classic Demotape “Wage of mayhem” (1984) for the first time on vinyl spiced up with a lethal selection of rare and unreleased bonus tracks from the early days… NASTY SAVAGE were the undisputed pioneers of Florida’s Metal scene, arguments can be made that the early 90’s Tampa area Death Metal explosion was a direct result of Nasty Savage, who mixed a more nihilistic view, lyrically and through onstage horror imagery, than the Bay Area. Their debut demotape and the additional early tracks collected here show the band on a more Power Metal oriented approach (at times even leaning to NWOBHM areas) than the incendiary Thrash artillery of some subsequent works, but the amount of memorable riffs, a dark evil mood with a few psychedelic elements and the charismatic vocals of their distinctive frontman Ronnie Savage, clearly show the fact that even at their inception they were surprisingly mature and way ahead for their times.

The insane, impressive riffing and Ronnie’s high-pitched vocals coin a totally unique sound. Unique, but you can tell some of the influences: Mercyful Fate, Slayer, the heavier NWOBHM bands generally. “Wage of Mayhem” is without the slightest doubt one of the greatest and most influential Metal demo tapes of the 80’s. Remastered from pristine sources taken from the band’s personal archives.

Gatefold sleeve + 24 page booklet full of rare photos, flyers, zine interviews and memorabilia. SPECIAL BONUS: a replica of the original “WAGE OF MAYHEM vol. 1” fanzine!!! DIVE IN A BLOODY PIT OF UNCHAINED METAL SAVAGERY!!  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Diehard splatter vinyl (green mixed with blue + extra purple splattering) ltd to 150 copies

Black vinyl limited to 350 copies

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

HIRAX “Born in the streets 1983-84” LP – 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 143)

2nd pressing with different color settings on the front/back cover!

The roots of LA Metal! This is the ultimate collection of early HIRAX recordings on LP including their cult Demo 1984 in the best quality ever, unreleased tracks from the same era and the rare LA KAOS Demo 1983 for the first time on vinyl! Instead of the savage thrashin’ assault met on albums such as “Raging violence“, these early HIRAX recordings are a pure incarnation of denim smelling and fast Heavy Metal, at times showing a NWOBHM influence. Every song is a riff-fest from beginning to end topped with fierce guitar solos and the absolutely amazing vocals of Katon. The 4 track Demo 1984 has been ripped and remastered from the best source around, then you’ll find 3 unreleased songs 1983-84 (“To be free“, “The saviour“, “War hero“) and the very hard to find LA KAOS (pre-Hirax) demotape ripped straight from Katon’s personal copy!

And to complete the F.O.A.D. quality treatment, you’ll also find a booklet including liner notes, lyrics, rare photos, ‘zine excerpts and flyers! Katon W. De Pena about this release: “You hold in your hand something very special.  This record / album is HIRAX’s first time in the recording studio. This release also includes music from a pre-HIRAX era. We hope to give the listeners high quality with never before seen photos, lyrics, flyers, reviews, memorabilia, etc. We have to go back in time, the year was 1983..  getting ready to turn over to 1984.. (I was 20 years old) …” (continued on the LP booklet!) . Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Diehard edition on splatter vinyl (yellow on beer clear wax) limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 300 copies

We’re talking of 7MON, AxC, STENCH OF CORPSE, BUKA, MEAT SHITS, EXTREME SMOKE, early CRIPPLE BASTARDS and tons more.. Well, SOUND POLLUTION from Greece belong to that cult-infused era and their split 7″ with ROTTING CHRIST (when they were still a total Grind band) has a special place in the heart of all the sickos worshipping that underground niche crossing all the barriers set by Hardcore, Thrash and Grind until then. This shortly lived hellenic horde was feared for some of the nastiest, annihilating Noise/Grind terror that recalled influences from early Napalm Death, Sore Throat, 7MON (with whom they also shared a split demo).  Here you get their complete discography consisting of: “Practic holocaust” Demo (1988), Split tape with 7 Minutes Of Nausea (1989) and “The other side of life” split 7″ with ROTTING CHRIST (1989).

The wait is over and two of the most anticipated and announced F.O.A.D. releases since we started it all are finally ready to ship. Yes, INSECT WARFAREEntomological siege 2004/2009” Boxset (3xLP+DVD and 2xCD+DVD) and SIEGEDrop dead” 2xLP gatefold are out now!! The amount of preorders that we received for these has been unreal, so please be patient, we usually send all orders on the exact date that we release them but in this case it will take at least 2-3 extra weeks to get it all sorted out. Consider the fact that we have a limitation on the number of packages that we can ship daily because we have repeatedly clogged the local postal warehouses with indescribable quantities of packages and Mbags, so we have to stick to a certain number of units to be mailed daily. This is is slowing things down a bit, but we’re doing our best to be as quick as possible. Some orders have been already sent in the last few days, some are going out soon. For any enquiries, feel free to email us but once again: be patient.

The diehard boxset versions of INSECT WARFARE (colored vinyl sets + slipmat or patch) have been completely sold out on preorder. We still have the black vinyl version that has the same audio and visual contents. And the stunning 2xCD+DVD box of course.

As for SIEGE, we still have a handful of copies of the diehard splatter versions (approx 20 of each) so don’t miss the chance, be fast!

Not many words needed to introduce SIEGE: they’re the undisputed generators of all hyper-speed Hardcore, Grindcore and blasting fast Thrash and have massively influenced a world of maniacs bringing musical extremities to the most outraegous boundaries, the first most obvious example being Napalm Death that mentioned them as an inspiration since the “Scum” era and covered “Walls” on their legendary Mick-Shane-Bill-Lee times Peel Sessions, or Heresy that covered “Conform” and the list goes on forever! In the early ’80s SIEGE paved their way into the violent Weymouth/Boston Hardcore scene delivering the fastest and most furious Hardcore ever heard.
