GAMMACIDE “Contamination: complete” Discography Boxset, preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Gammacide, Pre Orders, Releases on September 14th, 2016 by foadmaster

Are you ready for another monsterwork of mindblowing American Thrash to be delivered by the unstoppable maniacs at F.O.A.D. Records?? If you enjoyed our previous anthological works for bands like WEHRMACHT, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER, DESECRATION, S.O.D., CRUMBSUCKERS etc, our next release is just another classic of that level. This time we’re moving to Texas for a total overkill of toxic and corrosive thrash metal at insanely destructive levels…: yes, it’s time for GAMMACIDE!

Their longly awaited “Contamination: complete” Discography Boxset is finally up for preorders, release date: September 27 2016. After years of tireless efforts, the ultimate collection from Texas’ ballistic speed-freaks of Thrash is ready to kill! If you’re not familiar with this devastating band, their ground shaking full length “Victims of science” originally released in 1989 by Wild Rags Records is hands down one of the most powerful, creative and criminally underrated US Metal albums of the ’80s. It unleashes an endless hailstorm of energy and tightness made of highly-skilled riffs, schizophrenic solos, head punching vocals and an incredibly solid drum delivery.

If you thought that the peaks of US Thrash were bands like Exodus, Dark Angel, Testament, Anthrax, Vio-lence… check out this boxset and you’ll definitely find a new name to add to your top ten, no bullshit! It contains their complete discography 1987-2005 including the following:

  • Remastered 1989 Classic “Victims of Science

RAW POWER “You are the victim / God’s course” gatefold LP and NERORGASMO “Passione nera 1985-1993” 2xLP discography (re-release) … out NOW!!

Posted in Nerorgasmo, Raw Power, Releases on August 31st, 2016 by foadmaster

As previously announced we are ending the summer with two timeless Italian Hardcore/Punk classics: Poviglio’s legendary HC heroes RAW POWER and Torino’s blackened Punk nihilists NERORGASMO.  Most preorders have been sent already and the last batch will be mailed before the end of the week. The ltd. mailorder editions on colored vinyl are almost finished, if you still want to get it we strongly suggest to act fast.  So, RAW POWERYou are the victim / God’s course” gatefold LP and NERORGASMOPassione nera 1985-1993” 2xLP Gatefold + book are both OUT NOW!!

So more in detail about each release:

RAW POWER “You are the victim / God’s course” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 044/LP)

Official re-release on LP of the well received digipack CD edition that came out on FOAD 3 years ago. R.P.’s first legendary 12″ “You are the victim” (1983) back on vinyl in a top quality edition after many years, enriched by an incredible extra feature: the completely unknown and unreleased “God’s course” demo 1982 that we recently found in TVOR’s archives, recorded even before Mauro Codeluppi joined the band, and seeing his brother Giuseppe and Silvio trading vocal duties delivering embryonic versions of their early anthems. “You are the victim” has been transferred from the original reels and remastered for the best sounding result ever, still maintaining the raw and energetic impact these Italian HC masters are well known for.

Highly influential Hardcore at its top, fast blistering drums, inhuman 6 string execution and rabid vocals plus the screaming mad assault of “Fuck authority“, “Raw power” and “Don’t let me see it” that gave a vital input to tons of speed/HC maniacs that came in the years to follow. The first Italian HC band that toured the USA and brought Italian Hardcore on the international maps. Deluxe gatefold sleeve filled with early day photos, flyers and rare inserts.

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition strictly limited to 100 copies in half black half ultra-clear vinyl with blood red splattering on the transparent half

Regular black vinyl limited to 400 copies

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

NERORGASMO “Passione Nera” gatefold 2xLP + book (F.O.A.D. 046 – 2nd edition)

2nd pressing of this timeless Italian Punk masterpiece, housed in a stunning deluxe gatefold sleeve including a 12″x12″ book filled with never-seen-before drawings by Luca Abort, plus photos, liner notes and lyrics, this is easily among the most elegant and high quality packaging ever made for an Italian HC/Punk band on vinyl. One of the most essential discography releases in the whole history of Italian Punk, finally seeing the light after years of hard strains and endless stalemates. NERORGASMO, the blackest and most sincere face of Torino’s Dark/Punk nihilism in the ’80s and early ’90s, the true sound of urban decadence in the city that generated some of the most active and creative Punk/HC acts back in the “furious years” of Italian hardcore (think of NEGAZIONE, DECLINO, 5# BRACCIO, KOLLETTIVO etc). This double LP is a complete collection of their recorded material, 44 songs (5 more than the previous CD/DVD on FOAD), including their first legendary EP remastered from a 1st generation tape before it was pressed on vinyl (so you won’t hear any old vinyl crackles), the 1993 album remastered from the studio DAT, 9 completely UNRELEASED studio tracks (1987) and a great selection of live footage 1986-1993.

Musically, this was a unique brand of blackened HC/Punk the Italian way crossed with some sinister Dark/Rock influences and the incredibly expressive vocals of Luca Abort (RIP) mixing rage with his sick sarcastic moods. Check the review on GoodBadMusic: “Italy’s NERORGASMO (translates as “Black Orgasm” – wonderful!) released one of the darkest and most original sounding records of the 80s. Backwards message, weird sounds and ultra evil, CCM-like riffing, creating a sickly sweet atmosphere of lascivious cross-downturning. Just the way we love it so much! What is anarchy and subversion if there’s not some good old satanism involved.

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition strictly limited to 100 copies in half black half purple vinyl with a bonus discography tape pro-copied on dark violet cassettes with 10 panel J-card

Regular black vinyl limited to 400 copies

Now more in detail about each release:

Asocial “Det Bittra Slutet +” double LP (F.O.A.D. 108)

Total Swedish Hardcore mangel at its best! Credited by heavy metal expert Daniel Ekeroth as the true inventors of the ‘blast-beat’ and the originators of grindcore (he defines ASOCIAL as ‘key to any survey of estreme music‘ in his book ‘Swedish Death Metal‘), ASOCIAL are a total cult among old European Hardcore Punk collectors. This monster anthology (55 SONGS) on double LP has been entirely compiled by the band using the original 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes, it has been edited and mastered by the band and even the whole layout has been put together by them using rare photos, flyers, cassette covers, liner notes and more!

It includes the legendary “Det bittra slutet” EP (1984) with its previous demo and unreleased tracks from the same session, the complete “Asocial Attack” cassette (the one that it’s assumed to feature some of the first blast beats ever landed on this planet!), an extra rehearsal from the same period, extra demo tracks 1983-1984 (among which the songs included on the “No war no more Vol. II” Comp. Tape) and 15 live tracks (the complete Split cassette with Distrust + 2 more songs recorded in Hedemora).  What to add?  If you like the fastest Scandinavian Hardcore/Punk and your daily drug is the insanely raw devastation of bands like Mob 47, Anti Cimex, The Shitlickers, Crude SS, Discard and the many “really fast” treasures that came out of the Swedish scene in the early ’80s, then this double LP is an absolute must for your collection!  Housed in a glossy UV laminated gatefold cover including a 8 page booklet!

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

Sore Throat “Disgrace to the corpse of Sid”  gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 107)

One of the scariest, most terrific records in the history of music finally comes back to light in a deluxe FOAD-treatment reissue!  This 103 monstrosity (yes, it was 103 not 101 as written on the 1st pressing’s sticker) originally released in 1989 and surrounded by many controversies between the band and Earache Records, still stands as an unmatched assault of catastrophic Noisecore savagery. Call it Grind, Noise, Britcore or whatever… but if we talk of the most extreme shit ever released on a full length 12″, “Disgrace To The Corpse Of Sid” certainly stands among the top 5 of all times. As Rich mentions: “Lion Studios was hit with a barrage of Noise even more extreme than before, as we decided to up the ante, and go for over 100 tracks on the record.” Side A consists of 90 machine-gun bursts of apocalyptic dementia, while Side B slows down for 13 anguished Sludge/Punk anthems at times recalling the industrial mood of Saw Throat’s “Indestroy” LP.

This new edition has been entirely remastered for vinyl from the best sounding sources and re-packaged in a thick gatefold sleeve including lyrics and extensive liner notes by Rich “Militia“. And it adds a special outrageous surprise that won’t be revealed here, you have to see it!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition in half black half yellow (with green splattering) vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

The Gerogerigegege “Moenai Hai” LP (F.O.A.D. 109)

Welcome the return of one of Japan’s highest expressions of deranged Noise ever conceived!! Over 30 years of extraordinary nonsense anti-musical craziness of the sickest kind, this is the first record released after a mysterious hiatus of 15 years and also the first full length LP in almost 2 decades. And as always, the genius of Juntaro Yamanouchi leaves us pleasantly thrilled…  “燃えない灰” (Moenai Hai) is an eclectic journey in obscurity that alternates Dark Ambient and Noise Rock to bursts of pure mindblowing sonic violence.  The second track “ゲロゲリゲゲゲ / “The Gerogerigegege” above all is the remake of an old song (written in 1985) and this newer version has Dr. Euro of the legendary Execute on drums, giving it a solid Punk feel.

It’s a crescendo with an ultra-noisy guitar turning increasingly saturated and deflagrating, recalling the weird sonic approach of previous works of cult like “Senzuri Power Up“. If you’re a follower of this unstoppable master of noise and you enjoy his previous aural crimes, this new effort will definitely make you wish for more!

Limited edition on ultra dark blue vinyl (250 copies)

And this time we totally outdid ourselves, as we’re going there to premiere 3 RELEASES, a triple attack of terrific Noisecore/Punk/Hardcore hostility. 3 names from Sweden, UK and Japan that truly represent the core and the roots of their countries’ underground extremity. Scandinavia’s raw Punk/Hardcore speed maniacs ASOCIAL with a double LP anthology tracing their early years’ discography, England’s most horrendous Drunk/Noise unit SORE THROAT with the longly awaited top-quality re-issue of their classic “Disgrace to the corpse of Sid” and last but not least, the incredible comeback of Japan’s Noise mastermind, THE GEROGERIGEGEGE, with his brand new full length “Moenai Hai“. These 3 ear-pummelling human sacrifices on vinyl are now available on preorder via scareystore.com (we’ll start to ship them on July 28th 2016).
