Posted in Morbid, Releases, Unknown Death on May 20th, 2017 by foadmaster

Happy birthday Metalion!! May 20th: as promised we are ready to announce that 2 new FOAD releases are out in perfect time to celebrate the 50 year birthday of the infernal Swedish maniac that over 3 decades ago gave birth to one of the most important mags in the underground Metal history! The double vinyl assault coming out to pay homage to this anniversary consists of nothing else than the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver.. and the rare demotape of the pre-TERRORIZER horde UNKNOWN DEATH, a ferocious raw avalanche of primitive Los Angeles Death Metal. The two limited versions of MÖRBIT got sold out in less than 1 day, the black vinyl version is going very fast too, and there aren’t many copies left of the UNKNOWN DEATH limited colored vinyl version.. so you know what to do! We are starting to ship all preorders from Monday, please be patient because they are even more than what was expected so it’ll take us some time to pack and ship them all.

More in detail about 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

BLACK VINYL  LIMITED TO 320 COPIES

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

– UNKNOWN DEATH  “Demo 1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 122)

UNKNOWN DEATH, one of the first bands previously had by legendary grindcore masters Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado, before Peter Sandoval joined forces. Before Pete there was a local drummer, Fish Perez who’d been a friend in the L.A. scene for several years. With heavy influences in the likes of Death, Bathory, Venom, early Napalm Death, etc., Unknown Death began making noise in the mid 80’s in any downtown warehouse that would house them. During this period they recorded their debut 12 song demo tape, self-titled UNKNOWN DEATH which was well received locally. Unknown Death seldom played at this point, rehearsals began to dwindle, and members became laxed. A short time later during a missed rehearsal by Fish, Pete was brought to Unknown Death’s rehearsal by a mutual friend and was asked to jump in on drums. Immediately after, Oscar & Jesse knew they had found a drummer to equal their raw talent and energy. Shortly thereafter, Unknown Death would split due to differences and TERRORIZER would be born to become one of the most influential bands in grindcore history ….  Before TERRORIZER, before NAUSEA, before MAJESTY, experience the ultra raw Death Metal aggression of LA’s UNKNOWN DEATH!! Freshly ripped from the best sounding tape provided by band members, restored and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio.

Available in 2 different versions:

DIE-HARD EDITION ON BEER CLEAR VINYL LIMITED TO 100 COPIES

BLACK VINYL LIMITED TO 200 COPIES!

MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP and UNKNOWN DEATH “Demo 1987” LP preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Morbid, Pre Orders, Releases, Unknown Death on May 10th, 2017 by foadmaster

After the deafening Grind assault delivered few weeks ago with Looking For An Answer’s new album “Dios Carne” it’s time to return to darkness and evil with two vinyl offerings that lean more towards the death-tinged Metal side of F.O.A.D. Records

The first of them is not just another F.O.A.D. release, it’s the celebration of the 50th birthday of a friend, a great source of inspiration for thousands of maniacs and a diehard underground pioneer of the Scandinavian Metal scene: no one else by Jon “Metalion” of the legendary SLAYER mag! To make this anniversary special, we decided to release on LP the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver. Scroll down for a detailed description and tracklist of this unmissable necrodead-ly madness. Three different versions available: a “Metalion bday” ultra-limited version on clear red vinyl with extra poster strictly limited to 50 copies (the most already reserved by friends and band members, only a handful on sale via scareystore.com and a few in Japan exclusively available at Record Boy Store!!), a splatter vinyl version limited to 100 and a regular black one limited to 320.

The second sonic crime of the month consolidates the inexhaustible bond between FOAD and the absolute masters of LA based Grindcore, the Terrorizer / Nausea / Majesty family! 2 years ago, during a short stay in LA, we visited our friend Carlos “Cosmo” Reveles, bass player in Majesty, Nausea and Terrorizer LA and found this obscure and virtually non-existent tape of UNKNOWN DEATH, the band that Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado had shortly before starting the legend that we all know. We brought the tape to Italy and after restoring and mastering it at Toxic Basement we discussed about a very limited vinyl release… so here it is, a super-rarity that only a handful of lucky tape traders has heard since now finally available on vinyl in the best possible sound quality. UNKNOWN DEATHDemo 1987” LP, 12 tracks of crude raw Death Metal clearly inspired by “Scream bloody gore” era DEATH (they even have a song called “Beyond my infernal grave“.. reminds you of something?). This is limited to 300 copies, 200 on black and 100 on clear beer-yellow vinyl.

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER “Dios Carne” gatefold LP and digipack CD out NOW on FOAD Records!

Posted in Looking For An Answer, Releases on April 28th, 2017 by foadmaster

As previously announced, we are ending the month with a ripping Grindcore bloodbath, the brand new full length by Spain’s leading sonic torturers LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER! “Dios carne” is out now, available both on gatefold LP and digipack CD. Most preorders have been already shipped, we still have a handful of die-hard splatter copies in stock so blast fast if you want to catch it!

After their devastating “Eterno treblinka” on Relapse Records and some line-up changes they’re back to obliterate your auditory system with a bludgeoning assault of merciless brutality. “Dios carne” takes the sickest elements of Grindcore milestones such as Repulsion, Unseen Terror, early Napalm Death and blends them with a granitic old school Death Metal imprint… think of Autopsy, Massacre, Bolt Thrower. Add a powerful, analog-feel production and the caustic vocal delivery of Santi (also growling in Nashgul) and you get a picture of the bloody aftermath that you’ll face! Here’s a preview of what you can expect CLICK HERE

Available in 3 different versions:  die-hard gatefold LP on splatter vinyl limited to 100 copies (act fast!) / regular gatefold LP on black vinyl limited to 400 copies / digipack CD with 8 page booklet.

More in detail:

Spanish Grindcore veterans LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER return with their first full length in 6 years. “DIOS CARNE” is a visceral sonic descent into the deepest layers of carnism and human depravity. Ethically aware, yet fucking pissed and ready to devour the opposition, LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER have unleashed their most focused collection of anti-harmonic orchestrations to date. Straight to the throat grindcore with a heavy old school death metal influence, that promises to unrelentingly punish the listener. “DIOS CARNE” is not just a concept album, but a musical statement abundant in blast beat precision that will simultaneously satisfy speed freaks and obliterate brain matter.

Posted in Mad Conflux, Releases, S.L.O.D. on April 11th, 2017 by foadmaster

We’re just back from the incredible Mega Record Fair in Utrecht, Holland with our van loaded with tons of ultra-sick records that will be soon available through our mailorder at scareystore.com and as announced, 2 x new FOAD releases are coming out TODAY! Yes, the first two granades of this spring are ready to go.. MAD CONFLUXCrazy action party” double gatefold LP and S.L.O.D.Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP are in our warehouse and all preorders are on their way to your homes.. The die-hard edition of the former one has been immediately sold out, anyway don’t miss the chance to get it in the regular black pressing! A Japanese thrashing hardcore fest and a brutal blackened deathnoise assault are ready to be unleashed on you, so act fast because copies are running low! Also, stay tuned because as you’ve probably noticed we have increased the production speed in the last few months and our next batch of preorders starts this Friday! NO REST AT ALL!!

Now more in detail about our 2 new crimes on vinyl..:

MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” 2xLP gatefold + booklet (F.O.A.D. 120)

Another crazy Japanese Hardcore release on FOAD RecordsMAD CONFLUX were one of the greatest thrashing HC units to come out from the Yokosuka/Yokohama area… just like SYSTEMATIC DEATH, RAISE CAIN, TOXIC NOISE, PILE DRIVER, BATTLE ATTACKER and many more. These psychos terrorized the masses from 1985 to 1991 delivering some of the fastest and most addictive HC with that skate-thrash vibe that made the late ’80s/early ’90s Japancore scene so unique and unmatched. Their discography is fragmented on several compilation appearances and the hard to find split flexi 7″ (1987) with JANKY.  They self-released a limited discography CD in 2005 that got instantly sold out. This double LP includes all their existing studio and live recordings (43 songs!) for the first time on vinyl, scrupulously remastered from the best sounding sources to properly incinerate your eardrums. It comes in a highly deluxe packaging with weighty gatefold sleeve and ’80s fanzine styled booklet including photos, gig flyers and biographical notes written by their guitarist Ori, also playing in PILE DRIVER and in the current line-up of the mighty DEATH SIDE!!

Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies

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

S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP (F.O.A.D. 123)

Hailing from ex Yugoslavia, SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH stand as one of the most obscure and extreme Death/Thrashcore hordes surfaced in the mid ’80s, worshipped by tape trades of the time as one of the fastest and sickest blasting monstrosities of the pre-grindcore era! They are considered as probably the earliest Death Metal act from Slovenia (and all ex-Yugo) and their first and only demotape was a sort of virtually non-existent cult mentioned on a handful of ‘zines and rarely quoted by the later generation of Noise/Grind pioneers (Jan Agathocles among them) among the oldest incarnations of the blastcore formula. Musically, they remind of South American slaughterers like BLASFEMIA, PARABELLUM, HOLOCAUSTO but way faster and more chaotic, with a sinister feeling of evil and gloom surrounding them.

Quoting Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag / Decibel Of Death): “Man I surely did ate this recording like crazy back in the day…. That noise was so fresh and we had already been used to the likes of ACRID, EVOKED DOOM, early POISON, ARSENIC and the likes so nothing could frighten us at that point haha! I also recall getting this recording in the mail via Shane Embury from his WARHAMMER days… The cool tape trading days. I had no choice than review it in my zine, D.O.D., from that point because it was so magnificently extreme!” Now finally this ultra-obscure gem comes back from the dead getting the proper FOAD treatment, mastered from the best sounding source in existence. One sided LP with a silk screened original art silk screened on the flipside. Incudes an insert with lyrics, drawings and liner notes.

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on red vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 200 copies

MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” gatefold 2xLP and S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP…pre-orders are open NOW!!!

Posted in Mad Conflux, Pre Orders, Releases, S.L.O.D. on March 28th, 2017 by foadmaster
