Are you ready to be mangled and ripped apart by a thrashing assault of bloodthirsty sharks? Then face our sickest release ever: WEHRMACHT “The complete beer soaked collection 1985-1989″ boxset is out now, as well as the deluxe picture disc LP reissues of the classics: “Shark attack” and “Biermacht“, housed in super-thick gatefold sleeves!!
No need to say that these are the most luxurious and heavy (also in terms of weight!) FOAD releases to date. After premiering them at the Obscene Extreme Festival in Trutnov, Czech Republic where Wehrmacht delivered 2 incredible shows driving the crowd to the most insane stagediving delirium, we are extremely proud to say that this is officially out now and all pre-orders have been shipped. The limited die-hard edition has been sold out in 1 day, Japanese customers if you’re fast enough you can still purchase it from our friend shops Record Boy and Base that have some copies on the way..
So, back to the “Beer soaked collection”: It took months and months of hard work (and nervous breakdowns) to put this megalodon together, spinning a huge range of tapes and masters from the band’s archives, selecting the top sounding sources and putting them together with painstaking care at our beloved Toxic Basement Studio. Then photos, flyers, old fanzines and all possible artworks to reach the best looking layout for this motherfucker, thanks to the help of our graphics madman View From The Coffin. If you are looking for the definitive WEHRMACHT-on-vinyl collection then look no further, this is the end result of a team of fans/friends that put all their possible efforts to give the opportunity to other fans to get a super-complete, quality centered discography of this legendary band. More in detail, this is what you get:

Together with D.R.I. and CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER the fastest and most influential Crossover/Thrashcore of the 80′s American scene, they used to blast when the word “grindcore” had yet to be coined, and their imagery of beers, sharks and drunken sturmtruppen-like freaks totally wins, so open your Lucky Lager and dive into this 104 song beer-soaked massacre!

..and if you’re just looking for the band’s 2 classic studio albums without all this bonus madness, there’s an extra option: we have also re-issued “Shark Attack” (1987) and “Biermacht” (1988) as single Picture disc LPs in deluxe gatefold covers, ltd to 400 copies. They sound equally good as those included in the boxset and come with the same gatefold jacket, complete with all lyrics and rare/unreleased photos!!
