CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Misantropo a senso unico” (redux) finally coming out on vinyl!! PREORDERS START NOW, watch out for the ultra-ltd editions!!

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Pre Orders, Releases on December 15th, 2014 by foadmaster

After releasing the highly acclaimed digipack CD version that got a really positive response both by the fans and the press, it was about time to give to Italy’s most violent and controversial Grind/HC album of all times a proper vinyl treatment.  If you thought that the recently unleashed TERRORIZERBefore the downfall” double gatefold LP was FOAD’s most stylish production of 2014, you still haven’t coped with this ingot-weighing madness…

Maybe this brief description will help:

* Ultra-thick gatefold sleeve with 70s giallo/horror style lyrics-book glued on the inner panel
* A2 poster with “Milano odia.. (The executioner)” alternative art
* Bonus “Separati dal contagio” 7″EP with unreleased art and side-B etched.
* Promo sticker

If the original first pressing had that sick and dark visual feeling due to the maniacal use of 70s Italian artworks from crime/giallo movies of cult underground directors, this new edition emphasizes it even more thanks to the astonishing job of View From The Coffin: starting from the idea of old hectographed posters and mags with a color scale fading into another, the inner gatefold and booklet will sink you into an insane dimension of words, colors and graphics all strictly related to that 70s style that influenced C.B. so much back when this album was conceived. And now to the music: deluxe redux re-issue of Italy’s most classic Grindcore album ever. This has been in the works for years due to enormous difficulties in transfering the original reels that were on a very rare (and unplayable) format. Restored, remixed and remastered 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 there’s even more.. on those reels we found a 4 minute unreleased song, “Separati dal contagio“, which has been entrusted to Sweden’s prog/horror Rock masters ANIMA MORTE for a majestic Goblin meets Frizzi ending result, added on this LP as exclusive bonus 7″

Originally released in 2000, “Misantropo a senso unico” is an incredible outburst of hyperfast hate-fueled Grindcore rooted in the most furious and violent 80s 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“. The definitive untoppable re-edition of this album, it can’t sound and look better than this!

TERRORIZER (L.A.) “Before the downfall 1987/1989″ 2xLP+CD and double digipack CD out now!!

Posted in Releases, Terrorizer (L.A.) on December 9th, 2014 by foadmaster

The wait is over!! FOAD Records‘ death crusade marches towards the end of the year with one of the most important releases in our entire discography: TERRORIZER (L.A.) “Before the downfall: complete demos, live and unreleased tracks 1987-1989” double gatefold LP+CD and double digipack CD!! Both versions are out now are ready to ship!

As the 2xCD version has been delivered to our headquarters some days ago, most of the orders including the CD version only have been sent already, while those with the vinyl are being shipped right now! As expected, the die-hard edition on splattered orange/white vinyl is totally sold out, the regular black one is also running fast so make sure to catch it in time!

Oscar Garcia about this release: “This is the first and the only true release of Terrorizer LA demos ever captured on vinyl and cd, not a low quality bootleg but an official release, none better than to have it all on FOAD Records. Awesome collection for any Terrorizer LA fan!“. The ultimate early years’ anthology from Los Angeles’ godfathers of GRIND, the one and only… TERRORIZER!

This monsterwork starts off with “Collapse“, a completely unreleased song from the “World downfall” studio session unearthed from the band’s secret archives.. next is an alternative take of their split tape with NAUSEA (1988) that sounds like machine-gun fire in the face and then you can enjoy all their existing demos and early works in astonishingly great sound quality, mastered with total audiophile passion from the best sounding sources in existence!! Some of these recordings are the reason why Shane Embury of Napalm Death back in his tape-trading days got completely crazy for them and persuaded Earache to sign them and bring to light “World downfall” (when the band was already on hiatus). “Countless blast warriors still strive for this classic sound and catchy song structure, but no one can match it on Oscar Garcia’s pitch(less) caveman growl! This is the perfect storm of incredible songwriting and recording quality” (Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer / Agoraphobic Nosebleed about “World downfall“).

Posted in Events on December 2nd, 2014 by foadmaster

So we are ending the year with a relentless assault based on new releases (TERRORIZER LABefore the downfall” coming in few days + more vinyl gems TBA soon) and two shows that will certainly leave their trail of blood! The first is FOAD‘s classic “Night Of The Speed Demons Festival” established in 2002 and now at its 7th chapter. This year’s edition will take place nearby Milano (Seregno) at “Honky Tonky” club on Friday 19th and will see Brazil’s thrash/punk legend RATOS DE PORAO headlining (exclusive italian show!) together with other blasting monsters such as CRIPPLE BASTARDS, YACOPSAE and EU’S ARSE… all bands that have recently unleashed some great music via FOAD Records. And to end the onslaught, LAFORCAH (feat. Carlame of The Skruigners) will deliver a bizarre avalanche of earsplitting Electro Punk!

The day after we’ll move to Reggio Emilia, to be precise in Cadelbosco di Sopra at the infamous “Donchy Pub” for another devastating event: this time the headliners will be Germany’s old school Grind/Death icons BLOOD for an exclusive Italian show all focused on the first 3 albums and seeing the return on vocals of the early growling maniac Martin “Chicken-Witchskinner“. Other bands to perform that night are once again CRIPPLE BASTARDS and YACOPSAE, opening act: BLASKHYRT.

RATOS DE PORÃO “Feijoada acidente? Brasil” LP and BROKEN BONES “Dead and gone” LP out now on F.O.A.D. Records!!

Posted in Broken Bones, Ratos De Porao, Releases on November 18th, 2014 by foadmaster

Another death-match has been launched by the tireless FOAD forces: RATOS DE PORÃOFeijoada acidente? Brasil” LP and BROKEN BONESDead and gone” LP are out now, released simultaneously. Most preorders have been shipped already, and the rest will be mailed in the next couple of days!

We are honoured to say that the die-hard splatter edition of “Feijoada acidente? Brasil” was completely sold out in its preorder phase, so from now on we only have black vinyl copies left for this LP. To anticipate yet another return to Italy of Sao Paulo’s Basement Rats for a special headlining show at our “Night Of The Speed Demons Pt. 7” Festival there is no better way than shooting out the 4th vinyl chapter in the FOAD meets Ratos legacy: after releasing “Descanse em paz“, “No money no English” and “Periferia 1982“, now it’s time for “Feijoada acidente? Brasil” appearing for the first time on vinyl in a special audiophile version sounding better than ever!! RxDxPx are hands down the undisputed kings of South American Thrashcore/Punk delivering their fast and aggressive brand of Hardcore since 1981. On this album recorded in 1995 and originally released on CD by Roadrunner Records they pay homage to the early Brazilian bands that together with them helped on shaping their country’s underground scene whose sound and attitude is so unique and original both when it comes to pure mind blowing Thrash or when it’s plain, energetic PunkRock!

So the choice of bands covered by RxDxPx on this monsterpiece ranges from the corrosive thrashing explosions of Crossover maniacs like LOBOTOMIA and PSYCHIC POSSESSOR, to the no frills Punk/Hardcore aggression of OLHO SECO, INOCENTES, FOGO CRUZADO, RESTOS DE NADA, HINO MORTAL to the 3-chord PunkRock of GAROTOS PODRES, CASCAVELLETES, PSYKOZE to even some early Ratos anthems revisited and spiced up with speed and rage, like “Nao podemos falar“, “A bomba“, “So pensa em matar“, all of them taken from the band’s very early repertory. All this madness backed by an ultra solid powerful production that simply destroys! And following the line of the latter Brazilian CD reissue of this album, we added a handful of bonus tracks that weren’t up on the original 1st pressing. Housed in a solid, matte laminated jacket with 250 gr cardboard insert!

- regular black vinyl (400 copies)

and then… another band that keeps the F.O.A.D.’s banner high and delivers another instant classic for all you punk thrashing maniacs: BROKEN BONES!! We are proud to introduce “Dead and gone“, the brand new studio release from these unstoppable UK veterans of metallic Punk/Hardcore fracturing jaws since 1983!

The current line-up consists of Bones (former and current DISCHARGE guitarist), Tezz (DISCHARGE, BATTALION OF SAINTS, UK SUBS, THE VILE), Dave (who also plays in DISCHARGE) and JJ on vocals. Basically, this is today’s DISCHARGE as JJ just took Rat’s place! Back in the d-beat stoneage, Bones had left Discharge to pursue a more metal direction, and he continues that path here with a well-focused fury. On these 4 new incendiary anthems, he throws down crusty thrash riffage over classic, mosh-friendly D-beat rhythms that barrel along with thunderous intent. As metallic as the music tends toward, JJ’s snarling, angry bark maintains the perfect crossover tension. This is some seriously devastating HC/Punk that pretty much schools every “Dis” band that’s tried to emulate the style since the originals laid down the template.

4 years after their blistering full length “Fuck you and all you stand forBROKEN BONES prove once again that they just get better (and more lethal) with age!! “Dead and gone” will be premiered in the UK on Saturday, 29th of November at “The Pipeline” in London on a killer show where BB will perform these new tracks live for the first time, so if you’re around there those days don’t miss this unique event organized by our friends at Dry Heave Records

Available in two different versions:

- Limited white vinyl (only 100 copies) with the classic “I..O..U..” soldier skull silk-screened in black on the back

- Black vinyl (400 copies) with the classic “I..O..U..” soldier skull silk-screened in white on the back
