DISTRUST “A dream of peace +” gatefold 2xLP and QUEST OBJECT PROJECT “It’s danger” LP: pre-orders start now!!!Posted in Distrust, Pre Orders, Q.O.P. (Quest Object Project), Releases on January 17th, 2017 by foadmaster
Are you ready for a new year of headaches and aural damages caused by another dose of raw punishing Hardcore / Noise / Metal from the FOAD‘s hounds of hell?? Let’s cut it short and start the attack! Our recipe for this month consists of a pioneering Swedish Hardcore / Punk act of the ’80s and a Japanese band that, even if obscure to most of you, delivered one of the best (and earliest) examples of Metal meets Punk aggression in a Japanese way. And according to us, their Demo is a treasure that had to be re-discovered. So preorders for DISTRUST “A dream of peace +” discography 2xLP and Q.O.P. “It’s danger” LP start now!! Considering that our previous Swedish and Japanese releases sold out at the speed of light, we strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch the limited editions on colored vinyl. The official release date for both is January 27th 2017!
More in detail about each release:
DISTRUST “A dream of peace +” gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 116)
FOAD‘s legacy with pioneering Swedish Hardcore / Punk bands goes on! After unearthing the early recordings of the speed Hardcore maniacs ASOCIAL, it’s time for another classic act of the same “family”… DISTRUST! Brief history: Distrust came together in the summer of 1983 when the 2 brothers Kenneth & Tommy (from B.T.D.) joined Håkan & Peter L (before in Why War?). Håkan had just started singing in Asocial (later on drums) and Tompa (Asocial) lived next door to Kenneth and Tommy so it was natural those two bands did a lot of things together. After that Distrust dissolved in the end of -84 or early -85 Kenneth joining Asocial on bass (later on guitar).
This double LP discography includes all their existing recordings compiled by Håkan straight from the master tapes for the best sounding result! “A dream of peace” Demo 1983, “Vi Rustar Dom Dör” Demo 1984, the split live tape with Asocial, all tracks from “No War No More 1 & 2“, “Really Fast Vol.II” plus extra rehearsal and live tracks, for a total of 61 songs of uncompromised Swedish Punk / Hardcore mangel!! They sound as raw and furious as ASOCIAL with an even punker approach. If you’re into raw straightforward Scandinavian HC / Punk and enjoy bands like Mob 47, Crude SS, Missbrukarna, Svart Parad, Headcleaners, you just can’t miss this! Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve including a 11″ x 11″ packed with liner notes, photos, flyers and original artworks!

QUEST OBJECT PROJECT “It’s danger” LP (F.O.A.D. 117)
Q.O.P. (Quest Object Project) was one of the first Japanese bands to combine Metal and Punk in a very peculiar way that would later evolve into a solid trademark for several bands from the Tokyo area. They were formed in 1983 by Dr. Euro, also drummer in the legendary HC/Punk unit THE EXECUTE, from which a couple members created GASTUNK. Musically, this release features an aggressive form of Speed Metal with NWOBHM influences and an intense Punk overtone. The production is simple and bloody raw adding a Punk-tinged feel to the whole thing. To make it simple, you can hear influences of Motörhead, Tank and Warfare on their Metal side, and so far as it concerns the Punk approach, GBH and Discharge are the first comparisons coming to mind. Euro’s drumming is tight and solid as always, also performed well is Kasuya’s bass, but the standout member is easily Satoshi, on both lead vocals and guitar. He possesses a solid range, opting to sing clean vocals in a higher octave primarily, though he handles singing in a lower range just as well. Satoshi’s guitar work is also very good, boasting heaps of catchy and creative riffs at every turn, as well as flashy aggressive solos on nearly every song. Q.O.P.‘s discography consists of 2 demos: a self titled tape (1985) and “It’s danger!” that was the re-edition of the first one adding two more songs from a different studio session.
Obviously, this LP includes all their existing recordings (the 10 songs of “It’s danger“) freshly ripped from the original reels by Euro himself and specially mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement. This is hands down the best sounding version of this Metal/Punk gem that will both entertain those into Japanese classics like G.I.S.M., R.U.G., Rommel etc… and those who are simply looking for a solid piece of primordial SpeedMetal / Punk aggression. Includes an 80s-styled booklet with ultra-rare flyers, ads and photos and an OBI strip with liner notes!
