Whirlwind Noise/Hardcore mangel on FOAD!! ASOCIAL, SORE THROAT and THE GEROGERIGEGEGE up for preorders!!

Posted in Asocial, Gerogerigegege, Pre Orders, Releases, Sore Throat on July 12th, 2016 by foadmaster

Watch out! July is the month of our “OEF specials“, as all of you know – like every year, we’re attending the world’s craziest Extreme Musick festival introducing some new ear-damaging FOAD aberrations to the masses. And this time we totally outdid ourselves, as we’re going there to premiere 3 RELEASES, a triple attack of terrific Noisecore/Punk/Hardcore hostility. 3 names from Sweden, UK and Japan that truly represent the core and the roots of their countries’ underground extremity. Scandinavia’s raw Punk/Hardcore speed maniacs ASOCIAL with a double LP anthology tracing their early years’ discography, England’s most horrendous Drunk/Noise unit SORE THROAT with the longly awaited top-quality re-issue of their classic “Disgrace to the corpse of Sid” and last but not least, the incredible comeback of Japan’s Noise mastermind, THE GEROGERIGEGEGE, with his brand new full length “Moenai Hai“. These 3 ear-pummelling human sacrifices on vinyl are now available on preorder via scareystore.com (we’ll start to ship them on July 28th 2016). And if you’re attending the Obscene Extreme Festival in Trutnov, Czech Republic make sure to visit FOAD Records‘ tent because we’ll already have them available there, also in their limited die-hard versions!

Now more in detail about each release:

Asocial “Det Bittra Slutet +” double LP (F.O.A.D. 108)

Total Swedish Hardcore mangel at its best! Credited by heavy metal expert Daniel Ekeroth as the true inventors of the ‘blast-beat’ and the originators of grindcore (he defines ASOCIAL as ‘key to any survey of estreme music‘ in his book ‘Swedish Death Metal‘), ASOCIAL are a total cult among old European Hardcore Punk collectors. This monster anthology (55 SONGS) on double LP has been entirely compiled by the band using the original 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes, it has been edited and mastered by the band and even the whole layout has been put together by them using rare photos, flyers, cassette covers, liner notes and more!

It includes the legendary “Det bittra slutet” EP (1984) with its previous demo and unreleased tracks from the same session, the complete “Asocial Attack” cassette (the one that it’s assumed to feature some of the first blast beats ever landed on this planet!), an extra rehearsal from the same period, extra demo tracks 1983-1984 (among which the songs included on the “No war no more Vol. II” Comp. Tape) and 15 live tracks (the complete Split cassette with Distrust + 2 more songs recorded in Hedemora).  What to add?  If you like the fastest Scandinavian Hardcore/Punk and your daily drug is the insanely raw devastation of bands like Mob 47, Anti Cimex, The Shitlickers, Crude SS, Discard and the many “really fast” treasures that came out of the Swedish scene in the early ’80s, then this double LP is an absolute must for your collection!  Housed in a glossy UV laminated gatefold cover including a 8 page booklet!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition in half grey half white (with black splattering) vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

Sore Throat “Disgrace to the corpse of Sid”  gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 107)

One of the scariest, most terrific records in the history of music finally comes back to light in a deluxe FOAD-treatment reissue!  This 103 monstrosity (yes, it was 103 not 101 as written on the 1st pressing’s sticker) originally released in 1989 and surrounded by many controversies between the band and Earache Records, still stands as an unmatched assault of catastrophic Noisecore savagery. Call it Grind, Noise, Britcore or whatever… but if we talk of the most extreme shit ever released on a full length 12″, “Disgrace To The Corpse Of Sid” certainly stands among the top 5 of all times. As Rich mentions: “Lion Studios was hit with a barrage of Noise even more extreme than before, as we decided to up the ante, and go for over 100 tracks on the record.” Side A consists of 90 machine-gun bursts of apocalyptic dementia, while Side B slows down for 13 anguished Sludge/Punk anthems at times recalling the industrial mood of Saw Throat’s “Indestroy” LP.

This new edition has been entirely remastered for vinyl from the best sounding sources and re-packaged in a thick gatefold sleeve including lyrics and extensive liner notes by Rich “Militia“. And it adds a special outrageous surprise that won’t be revealed here, you have to see it!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition in half black half yellow (with green splattering) vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

The Gerogerigegege “Moenai Hai” LP (F.O.A.D. 109)

Welcome the return of one of Japan’s highest expressions of deranged Noise ever conceived!! Over 30 years of extraordinary nonsense anti-musical craziness of the sickest kind, this is the first record released after a mysterious hiatus of 15 years and also the first full length LP in almost 2 decades. And as always, the genius of Juntaro Yamanouchi leaves us pleasantly thrilled…  “燃えない灰” (Moenai Hai) is an eclectic journey in obscurity that alternates Dark Ambient and Noise Rock to bursts of pure mindblowing sonic violence.  The second track “ゲロゲリゲゲゲ / “The Gerogerigegege” above all is the remake of an old song (written in 1985) and this newer version has Dr. Euro of the legendary Execute on drums, giving it a solid Punk feel.

It’s a crescendo with an ultra-noisy guitar turning increasingly saturated and deflagrating, recalling the weird sonic approach of previous works of cult like “Senzuri Power Up“. If you’re a follower of this unstoppable master of noise and you enjoy his previous aural crimes, this new effort will definitely make you wish for more!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition in water clear vinyl with black and blue drops (limited to 150 copies)

S   O   L   D       O   U   T   !   !  !

Limited edition on ultra dark blue vinyl (250 copies)

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs out NOW on FOAD Records! Die-hard limited Japanese editions delayed (approx 1 week)!!

Posted in Bulldozer, Releases on June 28th, 2016 by foadmaster

The wait is over and as previously announced, we have 2 new FOAD releases ready to attack…

BULLDOZERThe day of wrath” gatefold LP and “The final separation” gatefold LP are both out today!!

Unfortunately the ultra-limited Japanese editions on splatter vinyl with OBI-strip (BOTH SOLD OUT) are delayed due to a pressing mistake from the vinyl factory, so while all preorders for the black and oxblood / magenta editions have been sent already, if you ordered the die-hard JPN version please be patient a bit more… we will hopefully get it in 7-10 days and start to ship immediately as soon as we receive it.

Ok, more in detail about each LP:

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 105)

The ground-breaking debut full length of Italy’s most respected Metal band of all times finally back to light on LP after more than 3 decades. Originally released in 1985 and never repressed on vinyl since then, here it comes in a new edition, specially remastered from 1st generation sources provided by the band and re-packaged in a thick gatefold sleeve with unseen photos and lyrics (in English + the original early drafts typed in Italian).

 

BULLDOZER‘s first album is a total classic of blackened evil Metal taking the rawest school of VENOM and MOTÖRHEAD to an unbelievably powerful and wicked sonic impact, bearing the malevolent flame of “Black Metal” and “Welcome to Hell” and injecting it with a renewed intensity. For anyone into old school Black Metal to not own this is a crime! This is for anyone that worships the early releases from Venom, Bathory and Sodom.. WELCOME DEATH!

 

Available in 3 different versions:

Die-hard Japanese edition on splatter clear/white/purple striped vinyl + OBI strip in Japanese, limited to 100 copies only SOLD OUT ON PREORDER

 

Limited oxblood red vinyl (150 copies)

Regular black vinyl

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

BULLDOZER “The final separation” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 106)

The 2nd full length of Italy’s Metal masters BULLDOZER!  Originally released in 1986 and never repressed on LP for 30 years, here it finally comes in a new edition specially remastered for vinyl directly from the studio reels provided by the band and re-packaged in a gatefold sleeve with unreleased photos and lyrics (scans of the original typed drafts). “The final separation” is a devastating follow-up to their cult debut “The day of wrath” that adds a strong Speed/Thrash Metal vibe to their well-tested Black Metal meets dirty R’n’R tinged aggression!

 

All in all, this is another good confirm of the goodness of the Bulldozer’s sound back in the 80s and it’s good to recommend it to the old school fans of this lethal black/speed combination. For all its length, the nastiness of the speed metal and the brutal influences of bands like VENOM and MOTÖRHEAD collide to create another high impact effort, in pure 80s style!! RIDE HARD… DIE FAST!!

 

Available in 3 different versions: 

Die-hard Japanese edition on splatter orange/red striped vinyl + OBI strip in Japanese, limited to 100 copies only SOLD OUT ON PREORDER

 

Limited dark magenta vinyl (150 copies)

Regular black vinyl

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs… preorders are open NOW!

Posted in Bulldozer, Pre Orders, Releases on June 13th, 2016 by foadmaster

What’s brewing in FOAD‘s unstoppable cauldron of death for this month? Once again two ageless classics of the rawest and most uncompromised Italian Metal ever conceived… They have been in the pipeline for years and now they are finally ready to be unleashed: we are talking about the ultimate vinyl reissues of the first two BULLDOZER albums, “The day of wrath” (1985) and “The final separation” (1986)!! PRE-ORDERS FOR BOTH START NOW, the official release date is scheduled for June 27th 2016 even if we’ll already have a first ltd batch of copies at this week’s Hellfest Open Air in Clisson, France (that we’ll be attending as usual with our massive record stand in the Extreme Market area). We are glad to keep our legacy with our friends Bulldozer stronger than ever, and after releasing several CDs and LPs by them (“The exorcism“, “IX“, “Neurodeliri“) and managing the online sales of their official merch via scareystore.com it’s time for us to complete their 80s vinyl discography on FOAD adding these two supreme masterpieces of infernal morbidity! And as we also did with “IX” and “Neurodeliri” we prepared some limited highly collectable Japanese editions to celebrate the solid fan-base that the Bulls always had in the land of the rising sun. They will be soon available at the main underground record stores in Tokyo like our friends Record Boy and Record Shop Base and in very limited quantity also through our mailorder, but they are expected to sell out at the speed of light so as someone would suggest: RIDE HARD… ORDER FAST!!

MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: Demo/Live/Reh 1986” gatefold LP+CD and ATROCITY “Mangled” LP: out now!!

Posted in Atrocity, Mutilator, Releases on May 26th, 2016 by foadmaster

2 new FOAD rippers are out today! As previously announced, this month’s recipe consists of two bloody raw Death/Thrashin’ classics from 1986-1988… Brazil’s MUTILATOR and Torrington, Connecticut’s ATROCITY. Both releases have just been delivered to our headquarters and as expected they look and sound like a kick in the face! A big part of preorders has been shipped already, the rest will be sent in the next few days. There are still a few boxes on ltd. splatter vinyl that we are exclusively selling through our mailorder scareystore.com so don’t miss the chance until they are still available. Ok, so MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: Demo/Live/Reh 1986” gatefold LP+CD and ATROCITY “Mangled” LP are both OUT NOW!

More in detail about each release:

MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: demos, live and rehearsals 1986” gatefold LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 103)

Straight from the hell of Belo Horizonte/Brazil and the merciless savagery of that city’s early Metal scene, MUTILATOR stands as one of the rawest and most uncompromised offerings of true Brazilian Death-Thrashing brutality.  This record collects all the existing recordings featuring Silvio SDN on vocals (except the “Warfare Noise 1” comp. trax that have been already reissued by other labels): so you get the “Blood Storm / Grave Desecration” demo 1986, an insanely fast and raw rehearsal 1986 that the band had recorded as bonus on the cassette that they exclusively sent to Jon Metalion for being reviewed on Slayer Mag and a bonus CD with 3 different live sets from that period (“Festival Da Morte” / “Carioca Club” / “Slaughter Fest”) for a total of 32 bloody tracks mastered from the best sounding sources in existence (forget the bootlegs that have circulated in the last years).

If you’re a maniac of the Cogumelo classic era of Death/Thrash bestiality (SARCOFAGO, HOLOCAUSTO, early SEPULTURA, VULCANO just to mention the most popular) you can’t go wrong with this: insanely fast drumming, fantastic riffing and that unique vocal delivery that makes this an instant classic of rawness at its purest form. Quoting the bass player Ricardo:”Those were the golden years of Brazilian Metal, and the recordings included on this LP show an epic period of our scene, my wish is that the headbangers from all over the world will enjoy it… After all everything becomes history, and this is a history of love for a kind of Metal that will never die.” Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled A4 booklet packed with rare photos, flyers and liner notes!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition on beer yellow vinyl sprayed with blue splattering, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on black vinyl limited to 400 copies

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

ATROCITY “Mangled” LP  (F.O.A.D. 104)

Another cult Demo finally back to light on vinyl with a deserved “FOAD treatment” of dedication and quality… US Atrocity‘s “Mangled” demotape (1988) is hands down one of the best recordings in the band’s entire discography. High speed, rotten-to-the-core grinding Death Metal delivered with inhuman fury and brutality! The 7 tracks forming this ominous session were a solid foretaste of what they later delivered with their “Hatred birth” EP and the bulldozing debut full length “Infected“.

Non-stop fast, angry Death Metal with a somehow Grindcore oriented feeling, REPULSION, IMPETIGO and early Wild Rags audio terrorists being the first comparisons that come to mind listening to this. The sound quality is outstanding as it’s been mastered directly from the original 1/4″ reels. It comes with exclusive liner notes, flyers and rare archive photos.

Die-hard edition on smokey green vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on black vinyl limited to 400 copies

MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: Demo/Live/Reh 1986” gatefold LP+CD and ATROCITY “Mangled” LP: preorders start now!!

After releasing bands like ATTOMICA, RATOS DE PORÃO, BLASFEMIA, RESTOS DE TRAGEDIA it’s no secret that we are crazy fanatics of the South American most violent and hostile underground and the first wave of Brazilian Death/Thrash certainly stands at the top of this mania! So we are ultra-honored to announce that the cult MUTILATOR demos and 1986 recordings with Silvio SDN on vocals are finally getting the ultimate official re-issue all in one place, a gatefold LP+CD collecting them all!!  Such a release had to be combined with something equally fast and uncompromised, so the 2nd onslaught we’re delivering for this month is Connecticut’s ATROCITYMangled” Demo 1988 for the first time on vinyl… an underrated gem of head-smashing rage and brutality. So… pre-orders are up now, official release date for both is set for May 26th 2016.  As we always say, some ltd. die-hard editions get sold out unpredictably fast, so you know what to do if you want to catch them!

NAPALM 1984-1986 casewrapped LP and SCHIZO Before the collapse 1985-1987 gatefold LP+7inch+CD are OUT NOW on FOAD Records

Posted in Napalm, Releases, Schizo on April 28th, 2016 by foadmaster

Watch out, 2 x new FOAD sonic nightmares are finally out and ready to ship!! NAPALM1984-1986” casewrapped LP and SCHIZOBefore the collapse 1985-1987” Gatefold LP+7″+CD have just been delivered to our headquarters and as expected they sound and look killer! Most preorders have been sent already, the last batch will be mailed in the next few days. Note: NAPALM “1984-1986” die-hard edition has been sold out in less than 1 day, some copies will be available in Japan at Record Shop Base, Record Boy, Record Shop Answer and a few more, so there’s still a chance to get it (this mostly referred to our Japanese customers that have been asking about it). SCHIZO‘s limited edition on splatter vinyl is also going quickly, so act fast if you still want to catch it via scareystore.com

More details about each release:

NAPALM “1984-1986” casewrapped LP (F.O.A.D. 102)

Hailing from Sapporo City, Japan, NAPALM stands as one of the oldest and rawest Hardcore bands ever spawned from that area. For the times they started they were incredibly fast, furious and aggressive. For us at FOAD this is a typical case of undiscovered HC treasure and we are honoured to make it available on vinyl for the very first time, in a super deluxe edition with hardbound case-wrapped cover (taking inspiration from the legendary Selfish Records LPs!), extra OBI strip and insert loaded with photos, original cassette artworks and liner notes.

They used to describe themselves as “JAPANESE AUTHENTIC HARDCORE PUNK“, their sound was an insanely distorted yet powerful wall of noisy HC.. even if from a different area – they can remind stuff like KURO, GAI, L.S.D. and 1982-84 era THE COMES. Straight from the record’s insert: the band sprinkled the noise and speed of angry Hardcore waves starting in 1983 and becoming one of the earliest Hardcore Punk bands that came from Sapporo City. They were active until 1986. As reported on a previous cassette version: “The live tracks included here were recorded at a show they played, on that show the crowd was so frightened and paralized by fear that one person fainted, so those tracks can be considered NAPALM’s “masterpiece” and memories.

This LP collects all the band’s existing recordings starting from the classic “Detestable deed” demo (all songs are included here except a spoken outro at the end of A-side on the cassette), the ultra-rare “Sapporo Punk Omnibus” comp. trax and the above mentioned live footage!

BLACK VINYL limited to 300 copies

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

SCHIZO “Before the collapse – the complete recollection 1985-1987” gatefold LP+7″+CD (F.O.A.D. 101)

Years and years in the making (more than 5!), here it finally comes.. the most exhaustive SCHIZO demo collection you can dream about. One LP, one 7″ and one CD all in one package, housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a poster-sized foldout insert full of rare photos and ‘zine excerpts… a true work of heart just like every FOAD release! This collection compiles all the band’s recordings before their killer “Main frame collapse” debut full length (1989), 20 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the 80s Italian panorama. If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin’ Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals “the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories“. Here you get their complete “T.T.U.T.T.K. [Thrash The Unthrashable – Thrash To Kill]” – Demo 1985, “TOTAL SCHIZOPHRENIA” – Demo 1986, “M.F.C. [Main Frame Collapse Demo]” – 1987 and as bonus an ultra obscure “Private rehearsal tape – May 31, 1985” with completely unreleased tracks!

All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.. This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band’s evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve-ripping sonic torment of their cult “Total schizophrenia” Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why they chose “Schizophrenia” as title for Sepultura’s 2nd masterpiece). Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago.. this is a must have!

DIE-HARD EDITION on aside/bside blue vs bone white splatter vinyl, limited to 100 copies

BLACK VINYL limited to 300 copies
