DECLINO “Terra bruciata – discografia completa” gatefold 2xLP and SLANDER “Calunnia” LP (special ltd. re-press) out NOW on FOAD Records!!

Posted in Declino, Releases, Slander on November 17th, 2017 by foadmaster

After countless delays and mistakes from the pressing plant, we have just been informed that DECLINOTerra bruciata” gatefold 2xLP is finally on the way to the FOAD warehouse! This means that all your preorders will be shipped starting from next week. We’re very sorry for the long wait, it rarely happens that a FOAD releases gets postponed so much, but after a delay in production we realized that there was a misprint on the gatefold sleeves (several pages missing in the booklet glued on the inner panel) so we had to wait 2 weeks more to get this sorted out. Now the agony is over and this Italian Hardcore masterpiece is seeing the light as it was thought to be, housed in a gatefold sleeve with a thick 24 PAGE booklet including all their existing photos, flyers and even some never seen before artworks like the discarded cover of “Eresia“. There are still some copies on ltd clear vinyl, not many left, so act fast if you want to catch yours.

In conjunction with this we decided to add another Italian HC ass-kicker, not a 80s “furious years” related band but a present day’s revelation… nothing else but Venice’s SLANDER with a special re-press of their successful “Calunnia” LP, strictly limited to 100 copies with an extra A2 poster that wasn’t included in the previous edition!

More in detail about each release:

DECLINO “Terra bruciata – discografia completa” 2xLP  (F.O.A.D. 134)

The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it “the furious years” or specifically for Torino, the “wild bunch”. They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy’s Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental “P.E.A.C.E.” 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records!  Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc… and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk’s rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7″ (1983), “Mucchio selvaggio” split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), “Eresia” 12″ (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety… for a total of 39 songs!

Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11″x11″ booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you’ll also find a poster with the discarded art for “Eresia” 12″ that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, “Terra bruciata” is the definitive and most complete one, each session / recording included is totally complete! If you’re a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!

Available in 2 different versions

Die-hard edition of 150 copies on ultra-clear vinyl

Black vinyl limited to 550 copies

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

2nd pressing with extra A2 poster, limited to 100 copies!

Brand new one sided 12″ (side B silk screened) from these young Venice Hardcore maniacs bringing a cyclone of fresh air in the Italian Hardcore scene. 6 new songs + a really outstanding “hidden” surprise… Backed by a granite strong production, SLANDER combine the best elements of new school thrash-infused Hardcore with the speed and anger of straight forward ’80s HC. Add special appearances by Dj Craim and Gully and the killer artwork by FR3NK to make this flying guillotine even more original and unpredictable!

DECLINO “Terra bruciata – Discografia completa” gatefold 2xLP and THE CORPORATE WHORES  “Revenge of the whores – complete session” LP: preorders are OPEN!

Posted in Declino, Pre Orders, Releases, The Corporate Whores on October 12th, 2017 by foadmaster

With this month’s double aggression we’re finally returning to a well-tested ground in the history of FOAD‘s releases: ’80s Italian Hardcore.  If you look back at our previous works you can find the entire first decade’s discography of RAW POWER, complete anthologies by NERORGASMO, BLUE VOMIT, CRASH BOX, PEGGIO PUNX, EU’S ARSE, UPSET NOISE and many more. And we’re happy to announce a fundamental addition to these series: nothing else but DECLINO, with the ultimate and definitive double LP discography compiling all their existing recordings dating from 1983 to 1985.  This release means a lot to us, not only because we consider them as one of the best expressions of pure Hardcore from those flaming early days, but also because F.O.A.D. was founded in Torino, and DECLINO were one of the most important names shaping our area’s HC style. And as an interesting match to this anthology we picked another pioneering band delivering an even faster and more deranged brand of HC…Tucson Arizona’s THE CORPORATE WHORES with their cult demotape “The revenge of the whores” (1983) for the first time on vinyl, and totally complete. For those who aren’t familiar with this obscure outfit, they were delivering some sick, proto-blastbeat friendly Hardcore/Noise back in 1983 and if you’re thirsty for anything that was ultrafast and extreme before Napalm Death, Siege, Repulsion and Heresy, then this will make your day! So it’s time for new FOAD preorders, and our recipe for October consists of:  DECLINOTerra bruciata – discografia completa” 2xLP and THE CORPORATE WHORESRevenge of the whores – complete session” LP!!  As we always recommend, act fast if you want to get the limited colored vinyl version because in most cases they get sold out on preorder!!

THE CORPORATE WHORES  “Revenge of the whores – complete session” LP (F.O.A.D. 133)

Going through countless discussions on blast-beat generators and pioneering early 80’s bands adopting the hyperfast formula later consolidated in Grindcore, Powerviolence and other full-on-speed sonic extremes, the “Revenge of the whores” demo 1983 was what we would call an “obscure obscurity” mentioned by few, but totally deserving to be brought under spotlight. Jan of AGATHOCLES often quoted it as an influence in his early days into radical HC/Noise and reading the “Good bad music for bad, bad times” blog made by Erich (FEAR OF GOD) there was an entire post about it, from which we’d like to highlight this introduction: “If you wanted to be the coolest of the cool, you’ve had to have the REVENGE OF THE WHORES demotape and knew, that SIEGE weren’t the first.” Back in the tape-trading years and before the internet era, this band was surrounded by complete mystery, their only tape wasn’t even circulating with a cover/sleeve, just a handwritten sheet with tracklisting, and many thought that their name was “Revenge of whores” and not THE CORPORATE WHORES as it actually is. So finally, with this FOAD release we’re making justice to these pioneering ultra-fast and noisy HC psychos hailing from Tucson, Arizona. Here you get the complete “Revenge of the whores” 1983 session (24 SONGS!) for the first time on vinyl freshly ripped from the masters provided by the band.

Side A includes that mayhemic bloodfeast of speed that put them on the proto-grindcore charts: think of SIEGE or early D.R.I. running even faster and noisier! Side B shows the versatility of their style going through more experimental and nonsense lo-fi Punk territories. Comes with a 8 page booklet including a detailed history, lyrics and flyers.  If you’re looking forward to unearth the rarest and most obscure early day blasting noise/HC outfits, THE CORPORATE WHORES need to be added to your collection right there close to names like Cyanamid, Brigada Do Odio, Chemotherapy, S.L.O.D. and so on!

Posted in Asocial, Releases, Vulgarity Kids on September 22nd, 2017 by foadmaster

We’re proud to announce that VULGARITY KIDSs/t” LP, ASOCIALHouse of gore+” gatefold LP and ASOCIALDöd åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP are all out now on FOAD Records. The die-hard editions on colored/splatter vinyl are all gone on preorder and the black ones are running fast too, so you know what to do! Japanese customers, you can still find some last copies of each diehard version at Disk Union, Record Boy, Base and Answer… also, don’t miss the upcoming VULGARITY KIDS comeback show on October 1st at El Puente in Yokohama in memory of their former guitarist that passed away 30 years ago, it’s going to be a great party and one of us will be there too! Facebook event (click HERE)

And there’s an additional surprise about this insane Japanese HC trio: the LP that we just released includes their 8″EP and compilation track.. at the time that we put it together it seemed that their latter studio session was completely lost. But.. after announcing this 12″ and the band spreading the word about it and about their lost tape, a friend from their hometown Utsunomiya got in touch and provided this impossible to find session called “Bloody splatter”!! And trust us, it’s a total ripper, fast + rapid + thrashing as hell Japanese Hardcore at its best! So expect another VULGARITY KIDS record to be released on FOAD in the future, with all unreleased stuff. If you’re not familiar with these killer bands, check these videos introducing them.. VULGARITY KIDS (click here) ASOCIAL (click here)

We’re starting ship your preorders now, there are many so please be patient.

More in detail about each release:

VULGARITY KIDS “s/t  LP (F.O.A.D. 135)

Another gem of obscure ’80s Japanese Hardcore on F.O.A.D. Records.  Hailing from the area of Utsunomiya, Tochigi, this shortly lived outfit delivered the traditional sound of fast, no frills Japanese Hardcore of the late 80s that at times recalls the early Systematic Death EPs and 12″. This LP (silk screened on side B) collects their hard to find flexi 8″ on Asia Record recorded in 1987 and a song from “Enjoy your youth by this Hardcore sampler” mastered from the original reels and gets released in time for their comeback show in memory of their former guitarist Moochin that passed away 30 years ago in fall 1987.

Comes with special OBI strip, a fanzine styled booklet with liner notes, photos and flyers.

VULGARITY KIDS are yet another proof that when it comes to Japanese Hardcore you don’t have to strictly focus only on the classic names because there is an endless panorama of demos, rare records and obscurities that hides some very high quality bands. It’s an interesting challenge for us to unearth them and bring them back to light on releases like this!

Black vinyl limited to 200

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

ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 132)

Sweden’s Hardcore pioneers blast back after 23 years!  “Död åt kapitalismen” is their first recording since 1994 and as expected it takes no prisoners… 10 songs of raw and brutal HC combing the traditional Scandinavian approach with a solid d-beat structure. It takes all the best features of their previous works to push them to a new devastating stage… speed, anger, vitriolic vocals and a solid production makes this a total scandicore headsmasher for fans of Anti Cimex, Crude SS, Totallitär, Avskum and so on. Comes in a gatefold sleeve.

Black vinyl limited to 400

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

ASOCIAL “House of gore +” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 131)

The third and final installment that completes the ASOCIAL vinyl reissues to make their entire 1982-1994 easily available for all you Scandicore psychos. This LP collects the following: “How could Hardcore be any worse” (split tape with The Bedrövlers, 1984… THEIR FASTEST RECORDINGS EVER!) plus some extra unreleased stuff, songs from “Hardcore for the masses” and “Attack is now suicide” v.a. LPs (both from 1988), the “House of gore” 7″ (1992) and their songs from “Distortion to hell” v.a. CD (1994). All this stuff has been mastered from the original reels and mastertapes.

This collection shows the band’s progression from the early, out of control ultra Hardcore annihilation to a more d-beat paced (as a matter of fact, a Discharge cover is included) and even metallic HC approach, still keeping the aggression and power that has always been a trademark in their sound. 25 tracks. Housed in a glossy gatefold sleeve with silver hot-foil stamping.

Posted in Asocial, Pre Orders, Releases, Vulgarity Kids on September 8th, 2017 by foadmaster

Back from a frantic summer with many festivals and the madness of 8 FOAD releases in 3 months, here we are again with a triple bloodbath of pure mindblowing Hardcore from Japan and Sweden!! Our legacy with the Scandicore masters ASOCIAL keeps strong as we are releasing their 3rd and final chapter that completes the reissues of their 80s/90s discography, and then a big surprise… their brand new album freshly recorded in spring 2017 right after some killer comeback shows that totally destroyed! And moving to the Far East, as you’ve seen in the past few years, we always keep an eye open on Japanese Hardcore and the immense underground of obscure treasures still hidden there… This time we chose to unearth the VULGARITY KIDS, a thrashing HC unit that delivered just one 8″ flexi back in 1987 that according to us is a little classic in its style. So FOAD‘s aggression for September consists of: VULGARITY KIDS “s/t” LP and ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP and “House of gore +” gatefold LP. Pre-orders start now, we’ll start to ship from September 21st 2017. As we always remind, act fast if you want to catch the die-hard versions, as they never last too long!

MÖRBIT “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP (2nd pressing) and MACABRO GENOCIDIO / MORBOSATAN Split LP: out NOW!!!

Posted in Macabro Genocidio, Morbid, Morbosatan on August 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

This breakneck summer is coming to an end, it’s time to put two more nails in its coffin with two highly anticipated Black Metal gems! Get ready for the heavily requested repress of the already cult recording called “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” by the all-star band MÖRBIT, a freezing blizzard that will turn your flesh into an ice-cold pulp! Then it’s the turn of the split between MACABRO GENOCIDIO and MORBOSATAN , a terrific Bestial Metal whirlwind from Hell that will turn this hot summer into into a deadly downhill on Phlegethon shores!

Now let’s get more deep into each release :

– MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP (F.O.A.D. 124)

In 2011 the Swedish Black Metal cult MORBID released the gigantic sampler “YEAR OF THE GOAT“. To celebrate that a very special band was put together in order to perform some MORBID classics live for a selected audience. The band went under the name MÖRBIT and consisted of legendary musicians of the Swedish Extreme Metal scene. Erik of WATAIN on vocals, Tyrant of NIFELHEIM on bass, David of DISMEMBER on guitar, Erik of MERCILESS on guitar and Stjärnvind on drums (ENTOMBED, MERCILESS etc.). The night before the actual concert the band had a final rehearsal at the WATAIN’s “wolf lair” which also was the funeral for Metalion’s SLAYER MAGAZINE. Now a few years later METALION turns 50 and in order to celebrate this unholy event it was decided between all members and of course MORBID & METALION to release a really rare recording of the final rehearsal before the gig the day after. With the help of Erik WATAIN and FOAD Records this was made possible!

 

Get ready to freeze to death in the Swedish Black Metal inferno with these raw and morbidly evil classics:

1) My dark subconscious
2) Disgusting Semla
3) Wings of funeral
4) From the dark

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

– MACABRO GENOCIDIO / MORBOSATAN Split LP (F.O.A.D. 136)

MACABRO GENOCIDIO: welcome this new chaotic and raw Black Metal abomination formed by MasoDesekrator (Funest) and some ex members of Masturbacion Cristiana, a desecrating Italian / Ecuadorian horde based in Milano, Italy. Blasting from start to finish on a blasphemous sonic onslaught topped by some lunatic Satan invoking yells oozing malevolence and cruelty. Old school pestilent Black/Death Metal mixing the extremism of bands like Morbosidad and Sadistik Exekution with a solid old school South American Death Metal imprint.

MOBOSATAN hail from the infernal slums of Peru, and have been active with two demos and three EPs since their disgusting birth in 2013. The members have a deep investment in the Peruvian underground, including drummer Toñyn Destructor, who’s played with the legendary likes of Hadez and Anal Vomit. Not surprisingly, MORBOSATAN vomit forth a chaotic, careening form of ancient black/death that could only authentically come from South America. It’s a bestially savage, sickening sound familiar in the immortal strains of Vulcano, the aforementioned Hadez and Anal Vomit, and early Sarcofago and Holocausto! 4 new studio profanations.

 

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard color-in-color black/white splatter ltd. to 100 copies

Black vinyl ltd. to 400
