More in detail about our new releases:

RAW POWER “Screams from the gutter” – 35th anniversary edition – gatefold LP + poster  (F.O.A.D. 051)

F.O.A.D. Records keeps up the unbreakable legacy with Italy’s absolute Hardcore heroes RAW POWER giving to their most classic album “Screams from the gutter” a proper deluxe edition to consecrate its 35th anniversary, a total quality-care version that makes justice to this timeless Hardcore milestone! Many of you will agree that this is the finest Italian HC offering ever made and easily one of the 10 world’s best Hardcore records of the 80’s… over 40.000 copies sold and still sounding fresh and up-to-date even when compared to modern HC standards. F.O.A.D.‘s treatment for this all time colossus consists of a thick glossy gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and rare/unreleased photos and flyers, a square A2 replica of their cult gig-poster with Cro-Mags and Motörhead + a scrupolous mastering that respects in detail the original reels sound leaving full breathe and dynamics to its original impact and (raw) power!

17 gems of intense, no-frills HC with a bombastic drummer, fantastic guitar riffs and angry vocals. It’s a difficult comparison with their other early output – “You Are The Victim” and the excellent material released by BCT – but after all “Screams From The Gutter” marks RAW POWER‘s peak due to its superior production. The band’s simple yet instantly memorable riffs bring to mind Black Flag, Circle Jerks but also earlier groups like the Who, AC/DC, and of course, the Stooges. Throw in some cool harmonics, rockin’ solos, a cowbell, and a guitar player with hell-shriek vocals, a fucking huge afro and pointy shoes, and you have this flawless Hardcore classic!!  Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 350 copies

CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Misantropo a senso unico” gatefold LP+CD+7″ and Digipack 2xCD  (F.O.A.D. 188)

Misantropo a senso unico” – Italy’s most classic Grindcore album ever – turns 20 and gets celebrated with a top notch deluxe edition enriched with a lot of extra contents. Originally released in 2000, CB‘s 2nd full length is an incredible outburst of hyperfast hate-fueled Grind rooted in the most furious and violent 80’s Italian Hardcore. 16 songs of manic speed scream-out-lungs hatred at its most nihilistic form, the band’s absolute manifesto. UK’s Terrorizer Mag quoted it as nr. 6 of the most essential Grindcore albums of all times. S.O.D. / Brutal Truth / Hemlock / Anthrax / Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker about this album: “Exquisitely insane hardcore grind that reminds me of why I got into all this shit back in the late Eighties”.

This package includes both the original version (2000) and the highly acclaimed redux edition (that adds a bonus track) made in 2013 starting from the master reels, mixed with feverish care at Toxic Basement Studio under constant supervision of the band, to keep the original rawness and rage completely intact and utterly reinforced.  And to make this version the most exhaustive ever, in the vinyl version you’ll also find the 7″EP “Il grande silenzio“, recorded few months before the album and including rawer versions of 5 hits later re-recorded on the LP.

SAGATRAKAVASHEN “Saga of darkness 1988-2018” 2xLP gatefold (F.O.A.D. 202)

Ultra-raw, primordial Black Metal Punk from the frozen Alps! Enter the obscure myth of Pentacolar, a mysterious entity delivering some of the filthiest, visionary Metal/Punk ever conceived in Italy…  a unique case of radical isolationism completely stuck in a ’80s time-machine that never reached the internet era… even in his most recent recordings, all things are made as if the clock hand stopped in 1988: same instruments and recording equipment of when he started. No emails or social networks – all the communication for this release has been carried out via telephone calls, hand written letters and of course masters on audio cassettes. Musically, SAGATRAKAVASHEN sounds like an archaic mix of ancient Black Metal a la Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer with some HM incursions (think of early Death SS and Wratchild – of which you’ll also find a cover) all tied up by strong DIY ethics and a Hardcore imprint rooted in the Italian school of bands like Wretched, Eu’s Arse, Dioxina and so on.

This anthology collects the band’s complete discography 1988-2018 consisting of:

extremely rare “Forza Arcana” debut demo (1988)
Sexual Lust” EP (1989)
Borealis!” Demo (1991)
Omega Lucerna Onirica” EP (2018)

All ripped from Pentacolar’s mastertapes and specially remastered for vinyl! Gatefold sleeve with 20 page booklet including photos, flyers, original art, zine excerpts and an interesting biographical note that came together as the result of a telephone chat with this mastermind of darkness. If you’re fascinated by the roots of Italian blackened Metal and want to hear the most uncontaimnated clash of old school Metal performed with ’80s Hardcore energy, you can’t miss SAGATRAKAVASHEN!

Available in two different versions:

Diehard marbled flaming orange vinyl limited to 100 copies

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Raw Power, Sagatrakavashen on May 8th, 2020 by foadmaster

Back with a vengeance!  It’s quite evident that many independent record labels are going through extremely hard times these days, in our case one of the most difficult since it all started. For years you’ve seen our stand/booth at shows, festivals, record fairs, guess how long this won’t happen… but looking at things through a positive eye, even in the most restrictive days of lockdown and isolation, F.O.A.D. never stopped, our mailorder has been active doing packages and shipping orders all around, and we want to thank all those who have supported us keeping us busy and on-point. We’ve been forced to stop our production for April, we couldn’t even drive to the pressing plant to pick up the records… but this captivity has only encouraged us to work as hard as possible and contact more and more bands for an endless string of future releases! And now we’re ready to blast back with new releases, and to give an even stronger sense to our restart we’re doing it with the most iconic records of two bands that have meant a lot to F.O.A.D. through the years: RAW POWER with their ageless classic “Screams from the gutter” and CRIPPLE BASTARDS with the hate-grind milestone “Misantropo a senso unico“. These albums are respectively celebrating their 35th and 20th anniversary, so we took the chance to bring them back to light with some maniac deluxe editions that are giving respect to what they represent to us and to many fans worldwide.

But wait there’s more: we had another sick Italian release in the pipeline and decided that it would have been cool to add it to the two above-mentioned monsters. With this we’re going way more underground, straight in the heart of the Alps Mountains in a small village lost in the middle of nowhere where a sinister entity spawned one of the rawest and most barbaric Black Metal Punk outbursts you can think of… SAGATRAKAVASHEN, of which we’re honored to present a total discography 2xLP called “Saga of darkness: 1988-2018“. So, to sum up the whole story: RAW POWERScreams from the gutter” 35th anniversary edition gatefold LP+poster, CRIPPLE BASTARDSMisantropo a senso unico” gatefold LP+7″+CD+booklet and 2xCD digipack, SAGATRAKAVASHENSaga of darkness 1988-2018” 2xLP gatefold + booklet are all available on preorder, as usual we strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the diehard editions, for Raw Power we made it on “glow in the dark vinyl“, the first ever in F.O.A.D.‘s endless discography!

Posted in 7 Minutes of Nausea, Gerogerigegege, Saw Throat on March 19th, 2020 by foadmaster

It is no secret that we’re going through a very difficult time, certainly the hardest since F.O.A.D. Records exists. We want to thank all of you who contacted us asking if we’re doing ok and how we are facing the state of emergency here in Italy.

More in detail:

The GEROGERIGEGEGE  “Piss shower girlfriend” picture LP  (F.O.A.D. 193)

A totally unreleased album with lost & found recordings by the undisputed Japanese ultra-noise master!! Quoting Juntaro himself to let you understand how this whole project started: “And, I’d just found excellent unreleased tape of Gero at home. I can’t remember this recording and date. Date, maybe, the end of ’80 or early ’90. I think you and Gero’ fans really like this recording. Side A for 15min. Side B for 15min. I named this record is… PISS SHOWER GIRLFRIEND!” In front of a message like this we at F.O.A.D. Records certainly could not back down, so here it is.. “Piss Shower Girlfriend” – the first picture disc ever released in Gero’s boundless discography.  Japan’s sickest senzuri noise perversion.

It’s all here, brief song introductions, his typical “1,2,3,4” and then an avalanche of ear-pinching horrorific noise ferocity of the most sheer and annihiliating type topped by lacerating screams…  you are warned! 13 songs in total. Picture disc in strong PVC bag, limited to 400 copies, 200 with fluorescent pink & blue sticker and 200 with fluorescent violet & green sticker. Watch the trailer HERE

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

SAW THROAT “Indestroy (extended)” 2xLP gatefold + 24 page color book (F.O.A.D. 180)

The ultimate edition of this masterpiece of apocalyptic heaviness! Originally released in 1989 as the band’s third album (considering the fact that Saw Throat is nothing else but a further stage in the legendary Sore Throat saga), and with a marked musical shift towards the more sinister sound of bands like The Swans, Saint Vitus, Amebix and Gore, “Indestroy” was envisaged as a one song concept LP with a lyrical emphasis placed on enviromental issues (3 decades BEFORE the current publicity seeking populism of mainstream popstars and media celebrities pretending to give a fuck about the planet). Improvised and recorded over a period of three weeks, the resulting album become not only the crown jewel in the band’s history, but the final nail in the coffin of them being an ongoing concern as the three core members concentrated on their own bands and all moved on.

However, the reception and cult status has grown over the years. And so, after digging through many old cassettes, the original rough mix instrumental version of the album was located featuring a different running order, and a heavier/more guitar orientated and less polished sound. As a historical artifact, this was the version vocalist Rich listened to while writing all the lyrics the night before he was due to record them. There are also some sound effects and small parts that never made it to the final version. Either way, as one of the last truely great recordings of the 80’s, this as now unheard version of the “Indestroy” album is for the first time made available to the public domain housed in a thick reverse board gatefold jacket with fully restored original artwork, extensive liner notes and a stunning 24 page full colored lyric and artwork booklet.

SEVEN MINUTES OF NAUSEA “Our conscience will not acclimatise” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 182)

Second chapter in F.O.A.D.‘s annihilating mission to re-issue all the early 7MON material enriched by an incredible amount of rare and unreleased recordings. This LP includes two classic Ep’s from the legendary years when TNT&Records from Germany was putting out on 7″ some of the most classic Noisecore ever landed on this planet… “Your father was a poser… and what’s about you??” (1990) and the split with AxCx (1989) called “We’ll just have to acclimatize ourselves to the post nuclear area“: complete rough tape sessions with a lot of never heard before outtakes added, freshly ripped from Mick’s masters. Straight from the LP liner-notes: “The story behind this LP begun when Matthias Weigand delivered us a huge box of 7MON reels to transfer in the studio, to check exactly what was included in each one of them. We found out that most of them were the masters of the early Eps released by TNT &Records and then Ecocentric Records. When we started to discuss about a possible series of 7MON releases on LP to re-build the band’s discography from the early times, Mick came out with the fact that he had recently unearthed the complete sessions of each EP, that were much longer than how they were originally released on 7″.. (continues)“.

To give you an idea of how longer these sessions are, the split 7″ with AxCx was 6′:35″ on the original TNT&Rec EP, this extended version clocks at 17′:18″ with more than ten minutes of extra noise! The bonus CD includes both the original EP versions transferred straight from the reels with a somehow sharper sound and the extended rough tape edits from Mick’s archives. The total of tracks included on this collection is countless, just think about the fact that the TNT editions had respectively 552 (“Your father was a poser..“) and 241 songs (Split with AxCx), nobody dared to count the complete sessions included here but we’re probably exceeding 2000!! These two legendary sessions shaped a whole genre and countless bands spawned from the “musical” extremism concepted by two Australian guys in the 80’s. If there’s a heaven of Noise, Seven Minutes Of Nausea is surely deserving a place at the top of it. LP with a special PVC sticker on the front cover, bonus CD, square A2 poster with the stunning “Your father was a poser…” art in its original colors and 20 page lyrics booklet!! Watch the trailer HERE

Posted in 7 Minutes of Nausea, Gerogerigegege, Pre Orders, Releases, Saw Throat on March 6th, 2020 by foadmaster

As many of you have noticed over time, here at F.O.A.D. Records we like to alternate various underground genres, making monthly thematic release lines… there have been months entirely dedicated to Italian Hardcore, others to Japanese, others dedicated to Death/Thrash to the most classic Metal, Punk and so on. An inevitable constant that is part of our most radical and extremist component is our love for Noisecore, and already more than once we have focused entire series of releases on this, as one of our favorite niches.  So for this March 2020 we return to what is well tested ground for us, and each of the bands we are going to talk about already has a story of friendship and continuity with F.O.A.D. specifically, Japan’s noise king Juntaro is a friend who in addition to having already had records out on F.O.A.D. in the past,  has always helped us in putting together projects with other Japanese bands, same goes for Rich Walker, we are at the 4th Sore Throat release and thanks to his help we have been able to bring to light the fantastic boxset/book “Noise not music” by Discharge and then Matthias Weigand (7MON, TNT & Rec, Ecocentric Records) with whom there is a story of collaboration and friendship that has lasted for almost 30 years…

In short, this month’s release schedule it is a bit like working in the family for us, and we are happy to announce the following: The GEROGERIGEGEGEPiss shower girlfriend” picture LP (a totally unreleased album with lost & found recordings from 3 decades ago!), SAW THROATIndestroy” 2xLP gatefold (extended version with 1 extra LP filled with an unreleased rough tape version of this milestone of doomy UK apocalypticore) and SEVEN MINUTES OF NAUSEAOur conscience will not acclimatise” LP+CD (2nd chapter in our series dedicated to early 7MON, this time based on “Your father was a poser…” and the split with AxCx plus plenty of bonus material from the same era). They’re all up for preorders and we’ll never stop in recommending you to act fast if you want to catch the ltd. diehard versions, as always they are expected to finish very quickly.

The wait is over and another heavy artillery offensive on F.O.A.D. Records has been launched! 4 releases, one of which (HEDO – “Memory of bloody hands” LP) got instantly sold out. So we’re glad to announce that GESSSuffer damage + Live” LP+CD, RATOS DE PORAOCarniceria tropical” LP and WARDOGSIt’s time to fight!” LP are out now! The situation is the following:  no copies left for HEDO and both colored vinyl versions of GESS are completely gone.  We still have a few GESS on black vinyl, they won’t last for long. Also, act fast if you want to catch the remaining ltd. splatter copies of RxDxPx and WARDOGS, they’re going fast.  We’re currently starting to ship your preorders, they’ll be all on their way in approx. 4-5 days from now so please be patient, we’re taking care of it as always. Needless to say that there’ll be another massive ear-damaging vinyl threat coming in March and with the next ones things will get even more extreme and wicked, so stay alert!

GESS “Suffer damage + Live” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 190)

Back to the ’80s… Kyūshū fuzz-core terror!! Originally formed in 1983 in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture, these Noise/Punk maniacs quickly moved to Hakata to join the ultra violent scene of pioneering legends like GAI, CONFUSE, NO-CUT, SIEG HEIL and many more, performing at the cult “Control gigs” hosted by the Violent Party Crew.

Brutal chaotic distortion on a wall of lo-fi filth Punk! The classic “Suffer damage” Demo 1984 for the first time on vinyl mastered from an original tape and sounding better than ever, side B “Live at Matchbox, Hakata 1984 ” from the same noisy era. Extra CD with 2 x complete “Violent Party” live sets recorded in Nishijin Jaja in 1985 showing their progression from total Noisecore to that ’77 style Punk that later drove them to form LYDIA CATS!!

Includes A3 sized insert with liner notes and rare photos/flyers. A total must have if you like the earsplitting approach of bands like CONFUSE, GAI, SIEG HEIL, The SWANKYS in their earlier stage, NO-CUT, CURSE and the countless imitators of that sound that came with the following generations. Watch the trailer HERE

We made it again, 4 releases in 1 month… level of insanity: pandemic! What we’re serving you on the plate with this “4 of the apocalypse” is a recipe all based on well tested atrocities if you’re familiar to the F.O.A.D.‘s line of sonic extremities: 2 noisy as fuck Japanese Hardcore slashers of the ’80s, an upgraded reissue of a RATOS DE PORAO classic (keeping the F.O.A.D.-RxDxPx legacy alive and strong) and a blood-thirsty Italian Hardcore gem from 1983 for a band that with no fear deserves the tag of of “CCM’s little brothers“, but way faster and rougher.

What are we talking about? GESSSuffer damage + live” LP+CD: a milestone of Kyushu Noise/Punk ugliness, HEDO1985: Memory of bloody hands” LP: Japan’s earliest blastbeat driven Hardcore/Thrash introducing the furious drumming tornado that is IronFist TatsushimaRATOS DE PORAOCarniceria tropical” LP: one of the most brutal releases from Brazil’s stainless Thrashcore forefathers spiced up with a bonus track and restyled packaging and WARDOGSIt’s time to fight!” LP, an underestimated short-fast-violent assault of pure early ’80s Italian Hardcore in the most savage and rabid form. As we said: 4 of the apocalypse! They’re all up for preorders, official release date… February 18th. As we always recommend: don’t sleep on the ltd. colored vinyl versions, they’ll go at the speed of light!

HEDO “1985: Memory of bloody hands” LP  (F.O.A.D. 189)

1985: ultrafast noisy Hardcore unearthing the blasting roots of the speed legend IRONFIST TATSUSHIMA later in CROW, DIE YOU BASTARD!, SCAMP, FIGHTBACK and many other bands that made history in Japanese HC and extreme underground… Their complete session from the super-rare split tape with The Spots, 23 songs of nonstop fast, catastrophic Ultracore-Thrash… the very first Japanese blast-beats ever recorded in Japan!

Mastered from the original tape, comes with an insert providing a detailed biographic note in Japanese and English written by Ironfist himself… Here’s a short excerpt to give you an idea: “..our aim was to do some noisy and fast Hardcore, and what we mostly had in mind back then was CONFUSE, because they were seen as the fastest band in Japan. But every time we practiced the level of speed of the songs was getting faster and faster, quickly surpassing CONFUSE“. Get ready to be blasted! Watch the trailer HERE
