POISON “Höelle und Vernichtung – Complete discography 1984/1987” Boxset OUT NOW on FOAD Records!

Posted in Poison on June 20th, 2017 by foadmaster

At last! One of the most anticipated releases in F.O.A.D.‘s history is ready and it finally invaded our warehouse!!! Poison “Höelle und Vernichtung – Complete discography 1984/1987” boxset is here and it’s ready to go… there are only 30 copies left of the diehard edition on splatter vinyl with extra backpatch and A1 poster so blast at the speed of light! Please, be patient because this mammoth is HUGE (each copy weighs 2,4 Kg) and will take a while to send out all preorders, of course we’ll do our best to send them all out within a week or two… And this is just the beginning! This scorching hot summer will see a streak of releases by F.O.A.D. Records, so keep your eyes open, the next batch of preorders will be announced in few days and then another will follow!

All the existing POISON recordings from 1984 to 1987 + an extensive choice of unreleased material, over 5 hours of pure infernal armageddon from one of the most ancient pioneering Black/Death Metal hellhounds of the mittel-European scene of the 80s. To make things fair for those who had already got our previous POISON vinyl releases, this boxset is somehow completing the series because “Sons of evil“, “Bestial Death” and “Awakening of the dead” on it are featured on CD only, while all the rest (that has mostly never been released before) is included on LP. Quoting the band’s master-mind of evil Uli “Angel Of Death” Hildenbrand: “When F.O.A.D. contacted me the first time to discuss the possibility of a complete re-release of all those ancient tapes, I basically thought they were nuts – and told them so – however; through sheer tenacity they managed to convince me that it was about time for a really professional overworking of the material – hence the re-release of the first 3 demos and now THIS: basically everything you always wanted to know about POISON but were afraid to ask for! Seriously; this box has it all – the best sounding-material available, all lovingly remastered and re-designed (with a little help from yours truly); all of it taken from the original masters, some of it never released before! Even I myself was amazed by the results – which is something that happens very rarely – so, if you are a fan and you want to experience the story of the band from beginning to end, here is your perfect time machine! So if you’re ready for some 5-6 hours of poisonous pleasures – IMMERSE YOURSELF!

This monster comes in an embossed deluxe box and includes 5 x LPs, 2 x digipack CDs and a 60 page hard cover book collecting all their existing photos, flyers, artworks, ‘zine excerpts and more! Every recording has been ripped from the master-tapes provided by the band and maniacally restored and remastered. More in detail about the contents:

LP1 : “Into the abyss” (remastered by Uli Hildenbrand)

LP 2+3 (gatefold) : Full 1986 Live set in rehearsal (previously unreleased)

LP 4 : The First Gig 1985: “Live Terror” (extended version featuring the complete show, as the ’80s cassette edition wasn’t complete)

MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of…” LP and UNKNOWN DEATH “Demo 1987” LP out NOW on FOAD Records!!

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 norwegian 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.
