TOXIC NOISE “Discography 1990-1994” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 115)
Raging Yokohama City Hardcore from the early ’90s!! Complete discography including the split Ep with 消化不良, split EP with Damnable Excite Zombies, songs from 6 different compilations and the rare 1994 Demo for a 7″ that never came out. 18 songs of uncompromised fury with all the features that make a Japanese Hardcore band unique: drums running at thrashin’ fast speeds, blazing spirited solos and absolutely outstanding vocals at times reminding of early Agnostic Front! This LP gives the right spot on to a great band from a city that has always released legendary bands… SYSTEMATIC DEATH, PILE DRIVER, MAD CONFLUX, RAISE CAIN and many more… Their guitarist is now active in the insane Thrash/HC unit GARYU! This LP is housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with insert and bonus sticker, inside you’ll find rare and unreleased photos, artworks and detailed infos/images on all their discography. If you’re into no frills, straightforward Japanese Hardcore, this is definitely a must have!

TERRORIZER “Before the downfall 1987/1989” 2xLP Gatefold + CD 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 069)
2nd pressing with different colors on the sleeve and print on the sikscreened LP (blue instead of orange). Deluxe gatefold 2xLP with silkscreened print on side D, bonus “Reh/Live 1987” CD, extra slipcase with alternate artwork, 16 page booklet featuring extensive interviews, loads of never-seen-before photos, scans of old flyers, demo artworks and more. 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“). 46 SONGS of bulldozing L.A. Grindcore with a solid Death Metal imprint, all the classics you want to hear included!
