Posted in Pre Orders, Releases, Terrorizer (L.A.) on November 25th, 2014 by foadmaster

We are totally proud to announce that pre-orders for one of our strongest releases to date are open now! TERRORIZERBefore the downfall: complete demos, live and unreleased tracks 1987-1989” double gatefold LP+CD and double digipack CD are both up for pre-orders, act superfast if you want to catch the ltd. diehard splatter vinyl edition!

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“).

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

LUDICHRI$T “God is everywhere (Demos 1985 + Live at CBGB 1986)” double LP out now on FOAD Records!

Posted in Ludichrist, Releases on October 21st, 2014 by foadmaster

The wait is over, after being in the pipeline for 4 long years, LUDICHRI$TGod is everywhere (Demos 1985 + Live at CBGB 1986)” double LP is finally out now on FOAD Records!!

All pre-orders have been shipped and the record has been premiered last weekend at Dynamo / Eindhoven’s “Bloodshed Fest“. There are less than 20 COPIES left of the die-hard edition in splatter grey/white vinyl, so these are the last few days for getting this special edition ltd to 100 copies, otherwise don’t miss the regular black that is equally nice and collectable, with its golden silkscreen art on Side D. So more in detail: this release means a lot to us because, as previously said, it took 4 endless years of stubbornness and dead-ends to put it together, track down the best sounding masters and find enough photos, flyers etc to make it something special as we wish all our releases to be. None of the original band members had any sort of reels, master tapes or anything that could be helpful for this, so we had to go face a manic research through collectors and traders, ex zine editors and so on. To make you understand what kind of restoration work has been done… some lost artworks have been photographed from ultra washed-out tshirts of those years, printed and retraced by hand to be returned to their original shape! Thanks to perseverance and to the help of many enthusiasts that provided useful material, we finally brought to life this project started exactly on.. June 2010!! Crazy, uh? This collection consists of: Complete demos 1985 transfered from the best sounding sources in existence, songs from “Exposure to conviction” compilation tape 1986, fully uncut “Off The Board Live at CGBG 1986“.. 34 songs of tight and powerful NEW YORK HARDCORE showcasing the early steps of a band that gave a massive input to the genre and pioneered the US school of Crossover combining the most skilled and talented Thrash impact with their Hardcore roots. If you enjoyed the CRUMBSUCKERS’ “Turn back time” anthology we released a while ago, this is another treasure of solid and uncompromised NY HC!! Three-sided double LP with Side D silkscreened with an elegant gold print, gatefold cover and 12″x12″ booklet full of rare flyers, photos, early tshirt art and zine excerpts. And, icing on the cake.. front cover art by Gee Vaucher of CRASS!

Available in two different versions:

- Die-hard edition of 100 copies on splatter Aside/Bside grey & white vinyl
(very last copies!!)

- Solid black vinyl limited to 400 copies
