We’re just back from a memorable tour in Japan with Raw Power & Cripple Bastards and it’s finally time to announce the next round of ear-punishing sonic desecrations. After bringing back to light absolute Noisecore milestones such as Sore Throat, Fear Of God, 7 Minutes Of Nausea, V.N.A., Crawl Noise, Tumor, The Gerogerigegege etc… FOAD‘s path of exhuming the most deafening and extreme Noise/Grind cult of the late ’80s moves to Greece for two incredible releases that will make all you maniacs of the most obscure pioneering anti-musical terrorism jump of joy! Get ready because SOUND POLLUTIONAgainst music imperialism 1988-89” LP + booklet and INDUSTRIAL RESISTANCELight from deep darkness” LP are coming up next and they’re available on preorder! We’ll start to ship them from September 23. As usual we recommend you to act fast for the ltd. colored vinyl versions because they’re expected to go very quickly.

More in detail:

SOUND POLLUTION “Against music imperialism 1988-89” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D. 168)

Do you remember the days when TNT&Records and Psychomania were delivering on monthly bases some of the most disturbing, nihilistic Noisecore putridity the planet had ever faced? We’re talking of 7MON, AxC, STENCH OF CORPSE, BUKA, MEAT SHITS, EXTREME SMOKE, early CRIPPLE BASTARDS and tons more.. Well, SOUND POLLUTION from Greece belong to that cult-infused era and their split 7″ with ROTTING CHRIST (when they were still a total Grind band) has a special place in the heart of all the sickos worshipping that underground niche crossing all the barriers set by Hardcore, Thrash and Grind until then. This shortly lived hellenic horde was feared for some of the nastiest, annihilating Noise/Grind terror that recalled influences from early Napalm Death, Sore Throat, 7MON (with whom they also shared a split demo).  Here you get their complete discography consisting of: “Practic holocaust” Demo (1988), Split tape with 7 Minutes Of Nausea (1989) and “The other side of life” split 7″ with ROTTING CHRIST (1989).

52 tracks of pristine sonic aberration, retransferred from the original reels/tapes provided by the band and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio.  Comes with an insert and booklet including liner notes, photos, flyers and original demos / 7″ art!  Watch the trailer HERE

DIE-HARD DARK PURPLE vinyl limited to 100 copies

REGULAR BLACK vinyl limited to 200 copies


INDUSTRIAL RESISTANCE “Light from deep darkness” (F.O.A.D. 169)

120 SONGS of abominable Noisecore ferocity! 1989… members of SOUND POLLUTION, ROTTING CHRIST and Scut from 7 MINUTES OF NAUSEA team of for a bloody nightmare of merciless aural butchery. This recording has remained a complete obscurity for 3 decades and only circulated among a small circle of band members’ friends and diehard tape collectors. If you dig the late 80’s short song Noisecore formula adopted by bands like Sore Throat, 7MON, Tumor to surpass all the limits of extremism conceived until then, this is exactly that kind of thing.

Lightning fast blast beats, horrific distortion and rotting sick vocals is what you’ll get in 20 minutes of cacophonous tortures. One sided LP with silk screened art on B-side. Including liner notes written by Spryos (Sound Pollution) Watch the trailer HERE

DIE-HARD WHITE vinyl limited to 100 copies

The wait is over and two of the most anticipated and announced F.O.A.D. releases since we started it all are finally ready to ship. Yes, INSECT WARFAREEntomological siege 2004/2009” Boxset (3xLP+DVD and 2xCD+DVD) and SIEGEDrop dead” 2xLP gatefold are out now!! The amount of preorders that we received for these has been unreal, so please be patient, we usually send all orders on the exact date that we release them but in this case it will take at least 2-3 extra weeks to get it all sorted out. Consider the fact that we have a limitation on the number of packages that we can ship daily because we have repeatedly clogged the local postal warehouses with indescribable quantities of packages and Mbags, so we have to stick to a certain number of units to be mailed daily. This is is slowing things down a bit, but we’re doing our best to be as quick as possible. Some orders have been already sent in the last few days, some are going out soon. For any enquiries, feel free to email us but once again: be patient.

The diehard boxset versions of INSECT WARFARE (colored vinyl sets + slipmat or patch) have been completely sold out on preorder. We still have the black vinyl version that has the same audio and visual contents. And the stunning 2xCD+DVD box of course.

As for SIEGE, we still have a handful of copies of the diehard splatter versions (approx 20 of each) so don’t miss the chance, be fast!

Not many words needed to introduce SIEGE: they’re the undisputed generators of all hyper-speed Hardcore, Grindcore and blasting fast Thrash and have massively influenced a world of maniacs bringing musical extremities to the most outraegous boundaries, the first most obvious example being Napalm Death that mentioned them as an inspiration since the “Scum” era and covered “Walls” on their legendary Mick-Shane-Bill-Lee times Peel Sessions, or Heresy that covered “Conform” and the list goes on forever! In the early ’80s SIEGE paved their way into the violent Weymouth/Boston Hardcore scene delivering the fastest and most furious Hardcore ever heard.

“Drop dead” studio session 1984
“Cleanse the bacteria” tracks 1984

We’re finally approaching July, a crucial month at F.O.A.D. Records as it coincides with the Obscene Extreme Festival… we always have a special string of releases planned to be premiered at what we repute the best extreme festival on Earth.

After being in the works for years we’re proud to announce the ultimate INSECT WARFARE anthology “Entomological siege 2004/2009“, an avalanche of grinding brutality collecting all their 7″s, splits, compilation tracks, out takes, unreleased stuff and more.

Available in 4 different versions (2 limited box sets, a trifold sleeve 3xLP+DVD set, and a 2xCD+DVD digipack… more details to follow). And the other giant we had in the pipeline is nothing else by SIEGE, hands down one of the most important bands worldwide if you think about who started it all and influenced a universe of psychos thirsty for the fastest and most aggressive Hardcore Thrash violence. They were playing at the speed of light in a time when crossing certain limits was still completely inconceivable. And you know what to expect when a band like SIEGE gets the F.O.A.D. treatment.. the most exhaustive, detailed and made with heart discography ever seen.

So to go straight to the point: INSECT WARFAREEntomological siege 2004-2009” 3xLP+DVD and 2xCD+DVD sets and SIEGEDrop dead – complete discography” double LP are up for preorders.

Posted in Cyanamid, Janky, Releases on June 17th, 2019 by foadmaster

As we had predicted, summer on F.O.A.D. Records started with a bang! Of the two new releases that we put on preorder 10 days ago, JANKY is TOTALLY sold out and CYANAMID has the diehard splatter version completely gone and not many black vinyl copies left. As always huge thanks to all you psychos for supporting our effort and – quoting GISM – for being true “Hardcore collectors seeking the unusual“, which means that even if the stuff that we do is obviously very obscure and far from today’s musical trends, we love the fact that there is a good number of maniacs like us still thirsty for these lost gems and that enjoy to dig into the most remote niches of the underground scenes from every corner of the planet!! You can be sure that the saga will continue because we have a multitude of projects and ideas in the making, for example next month we promise to leave you with jaws on the ground at even more insane levels! So CYANAMIDThis is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD and JANKYDead society 1983-1987” LP are both out now and JANKY is sold out, you can still be lucky to find a copy of it through our usual distributors worldwide.. As for CYANAMID – be quick to secure a copy of the black vinyl version if you haven’t already, summer festivals are coming and the remaining copies won’t last for long!

More details :

CYANAMID “This is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 170)

1984.. the band that played faster than anyone else in the world, with proto-grindcore blast beats running way faster than SIEGE, REPULSION or early D.R.I...  They only left a devastating 7″ called “Stop the world” and few tracks on the “NJ got it?“Compilation LP and were mentioned among the early Agathocles influences or by few maniacs in the tape-trading circles searching for the craziest and most radical sonic atrocities. We’re talking of the legendary CYANAMID !!!  Quoting Erich Keller (Fear Of God / Off The Disk): “CYANAMID were probably one of the most influential bands of the 80s – but nobody knows it. When I still was heavily into that “can’t get enuff of noise” mood, CYANAMID blew me away and definately wanted me to start my own thing. The kids sometimes forget that there were basically two paths leading to that “Grindcore” thing – one from the metal side and this was the other one. Everything about their “Stop the world” 7″ is the way it should be – the sound smokes, the songs are either outbursts of chaos and energy or then they come crawlin’ in a FLIPPERish way”.

This review nails it perfectly, because alternated to the short, manic fast tracks you get some downtuned, slower (yes.. Flipper-ish!) and completely unpredictable tunes increasing the sense of violence and insanity that this amazing band was able to create. Many PowerViolence acts of the early ’90s did this not ever knowing that one decade earlier there was someone adopting the same formula in such a brutal way.  This F.O.A.D. anthology finally makes justice to these pioneering heroes, it collects their complete discography 1983-2014 mastered from reels and the best sounding sources in existence.. 51 songs! It has it all: “Stop the world” 7″, “New Jersey’s got it?” comp. trax, extra Transaudio studios out takes 1984, “I love NJ” tape and bonus live CD 1983-2014!!

Full colored booklet with rare photos, flyers, original artworks, zine excerpts, liner notes and mysteries solved about their “I love NJ” demotape. Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 300 copies

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

JANKY “Dead society 1983-1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 163)  SOLD OUT!!

Records strikes back once again focusing on the Kanagawa area (Systematic Death, Mad Conflux, Battle Attacker, Toxic Noise etc) delivering another classic band from the early days… JANKY! This LP collects the complete discography (1983-1987) of this raging Yokohama City Hardcore unit that embodied the true spirit of the Japanese Metal/Punk street-warriors of the ’80s.. 16 songs including their “Low life” flexi disc (1984), split flexi with Mad Conflux (1987) and the rare “Dirty party” compilation tape. LP with OBI strip and a stunning fanzine styled booklet with rare photos, original art and gig flyers all provided by the band!
