CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Your lies in check” gatefold LP and ARTURO “Giorni lontani 1992-1998” LP+CD: out NOW on FOAD Records!

Posted in Arturo, Cripple Bastards, Releases on January 21st, 2020 by foadmaster

As previously announced, we’re starting the new year with a deep dive into the mid ’90s Italian Hardcore & Grind meanders, with two bands that left a solid trace both in their local scene and on an international view… a blood-line made of uncontrollable speed, anger and insanely catchy songs. It’s the case of the hate-grind purveyors CRIPPLE BASTARDS, of which we’re honored to present a top notch re-issue of their debut full length “Your lies in check“, a true masterpiece of DIY Grindcore/Punk made of short and hateful tracks exploding at the speed of light, and the Torino Hardcore heroes ARTURO, with a total anthology of their early works (1992-1998) with Alfo on vocals, which means an irrepressible waterfall of energetic stop&go HC made of memorable riffs and a ballistic rhytmic section. Two bands that have crossed their paths for some time, in fact from 1996 to early 1997 Arturo’s drummer Paolo played in CB (in their post-“Your lies in check” phase) and even Arturo’s bass player Stefano joined CB for some gigs, the most memorable being those with Doom and Dropdead.

So here we are, CRIPPLE BASTARDSYour lies in check” gatefold LP and ARTUROGiorni lontani 1992-1998” LP+CD: out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records, there’s still a handful of ltd. colored vinyl copies for both, don’t sleep on it if you want to catch them, they’ll be gone soon.  Most preorders have been sent already, the last part will be shipped in the next 2-3 days!

More in detail..:

CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Your lies in check” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 186)

The debut full length by Italy’s hate-filled Grindcore masters available again in a top quality edition! Originally recorded in 1995 and released in 1996, “Your lies in check” is a 69 song tornado of ultra-violent Grindcore/Punk blasting at the speed of light! Quoting an older review of the album: “With no shadow of doubt a milestone in Italian Grind/Hardcore and an important release also if seen on an international view. Over 7.000 copies sold if you sum the different LP+CD+MC versions around. Sixty-nine songs of pure hate in fourty-nine minutes. Grindcore of vile screams, guttural bellows and a lot of yelling. Music that is short, fast and to the point. Slow parts that are heavy and dirgey, showing no signs of fun. Superfast Hatecore/Grind with a rocking Punk edge unique in its kind. Includes over the top anthems (Italia di merda, Stimmung, Prospettive limitate, 1974, Padroni, Images of war / Images of pain..) covered by plenty of bands worldwide.” Watch the trailer HERE

Audio re-transferred from the original reels and mastered at Toxic Basement Studio

Original 1996 artwork restored and restyled

Gatefold sleeve with lyrics, photos and a repro of the original poster

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard half red/half black vinyl with white splattering all over limited to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl version limited to 350 copies

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

ARTURO “Giorni lontani 1992-1998” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 173)

Torino, Northern Italy, is with no trace of doubt one of the areas that gave birth to some of the most important Italian Hardcore bands of all eras… NEGAZIONE, DECLINO, CONTR-AZIONE, 5# BRACCIO, ROUGH just to mention a few. And the great thing about this city is that all this did not only last in the ’80s but had a solid continuation in the decades to follow.  Bands like ARTURO, CRUNCH, FRAMMENTI, BELLI-COSI, C.O.V. took the legacy of the giants that came before and ruled the ’90s reinventing Hardcore with creativity, passion and a flash of genius in song-writing. ARTURO were certainly the fastest and those that have been more pristine in sticking to the total Hardcore formula, especially in their early years with Alfo on vocals. So this anthology is all focused on that time, the early years of one of the most furious Italian Hardcore bands of the Nineties… fast, top adrenalinic Hardcore that gives no time to breathe from start to finish!

It includes their debut CD “Ar-cor” (1995), the two Ep’s “Isterico” (1997) and “Topo volante” (1998) plus a bonus CD with the impossible to find first demo and an unreleased soundboard live at El Paso (Torino), 1996 opening for CRIPPLE BASTARDS (actually at that time ARTURO shared their drummer and bass-player with CB!).  63 songs of manic fast TORINO HC!!! Double insert with lyrics, original artworks and photos. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Die-hard swirl transparent blue vinyl limited to 100 copies

Solid black vinyl version limited to 300 copies

More in detail about each release:

BAYONET “Taste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 179)

Just when you thought that there were no diamonds left to be unearthed from the worshipped vaults of the early ’80s Finnish Hardcore scene, F.O.A.D. Records is ready to shock you with a lost&found classic that nobody was aware of, not even the psychos from the most diehard tape-trading circles. BAYONET have remained an obscurity also among Punks in their native land. Perhaps it has faded into somewhat a mystery as they had virtually no contributions to the thriving scene of Finland in 1982 and 1983 – the very little while they existed…  A shit-quality bootleg 7″ came to light few years ago, but it really didn’t make justice to the fact that these guys had two incredible studio recordings that they didn’t send anywhere at that time, and that were unearthed just recently thanks to the help of a friend that contacted a band member and triggered the gear that made us get here.

So if you’re a fan of raw and fast Suomi HC/Punk and turn crazy for bands such as Kaaos, Rattus, Bastards, Terveet Kädet, Varaus, Sorto, Riistetyt, Kansan Uutiset and dozens more, this 49 song discography by BAYONET needs to be an instant add-on to your collection. Needless to say that it’s all mastered from the best sounding sources in existence. These guys claim they were influenced by early ’80s US Hardcore but the style is actually what we all love of Finnish HC, a bloody chaotic inferno of speed and brutal distortion. This collection includes their two studio sessions “Taste of piss” and “Finger in a deep arsehole” plus bonus rehearsals, songs from the rare “Ilkivalta” compilation tape and the recording of the only live they ever made! It comes with an insert including a lengthy interview to Seppo and Nikke run by Otto Itkonen (Selfish, Forca Macabra, Kuolema, Kovaa Rasvaa etc..) plus some photos. To cut it short, this is a total must for every maniac of raw and chaotic early ’80s Hardcore!  Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd. to 200

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

SODOM ソドム “St.Requiem” Gatefold LP+7″ 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 150)

2nd pressing with golden sleeves (the first was all silver). A treasure of Japanese Hardcore/Punk finally seeing the light on vinyl in a deluxe version authorized by the band and all mastered in a process of years under supervision of the singer Zazie. This collection includes the cult “St. Requiem” tape-album (1984) and a bonus EP with the “ADK Omnibus” tracks (1983) cut at 45rpm for the best sounding sonic impact. 25 songs in total.

St. Requiem” stands with no doubt as one of the best Japanese Hardcore tapes released in the ’80s, it combines rapid fast Hardcore bursts with some dark, claustrophobic atmospheres that were characterizing the sound of several bands released by the legendary ADK Records label.

And talking of the pioneering status of this great band (that moved to a different musical direction in the years to follow), the singer Zazie was part of a very early stage of the GAUZE line-up in the passage from Typhus to Gauze in fall 1981. Housed in a gold laminated gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled booklet full of rare flyers, photos and original artworks.  Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Half-half colored vinyl (gold and black) ltd. to 250 copies

Splatter vinyl (gold stripes on crystal clear wax) ltd. to 250 copies

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

ASOCIAL “Föralltid Underground” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 185)

The masters of complete Hardcore Mangel are back with a vengeance! 12 songs of crushing Swedish Hardcore from these timeless legends mangling ears since the early ’80s!! Two years after “Död åt kapitalismen“, a new menace of uncompromised fury is ready to endanger your cardiac stability… Not only these guys were pioneers of the fastest and rawest ’80s Hardcore ever spawned from the freezing North, but they are among the few that kept the same level of intensity and anger with their recent reunion.

All the greatest features for a brutal Swedish Hardcore record are pushed to the top on this new full length, vitriolic vocals and vicious discharged riffs picturing the most apocalyptic war scenarios, solid scandicore/d-beat drumming and a kick-in-the-face production giving to all their rawness and distortion an even sicker and cruder feeling. Correct us if we fail to say that with this record we are closing the year with the best Swedish Hardcore album of 2019 and who knows for how much time more.. Watch the trailer HERE

Available in two different versions:

Diehard splatter vinyl (black stripes on white) ltd. to 150 copies

Solid black vinyl ltd. to 350 copies

YACOPSAE “Timeo ergo sum” CD (F.O.A.D. 183)

The return of Germany’s fastest band ever, 24 songs of neck-breaking Hardcore/PowerViolence at impossible blasting speed!  After almost 30 years since their inception, these maniacs show no sign of sitting down, if you loved their previous effort “Tanz, grozny tanz“, this is the same level of rage and craziness, reaching an even tighter and annihilating dimension. And it’s the last recording featuring Emu on drums, but for no reason this is the end of an era, they’re already back setting stages on fire with a renewed line-up pulverizing asses with the same amount of aggression and ballistic precision. So get ready for a new cyclone of unstoppable Turbo Speed Violence!! SCHNELLER!  Watch the trailer HERE

SODOM ソドム “St.Requiem” Gatefold LP+7″ 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 150)

2nd pressing with golden sleeves (the first was all silver). A treasure of Japanese Hardcore/Punk finally seeing the light on vinyl in a deluxe version authorized by the band and all mastered in a process of years under supervision of the singer Zazie. This collection includes the cult “St. Requiem” tape-album (1984) and a bonus EP with the “ADK Omnibus” tracks (1983) cut at 45rpm for the best sounding sonic impact. 25 songs in total.

St. Requiem” stands with no doubt as one of the best Japanese Hardcore tapes released in the ’80s, it combines rapid fast Hardcore bursts with some dark, claustrophobic atmospheres that were characterizing the sound of several bands released by the legendary ADK Records label.

And talking of the pioneering status of this great band (that moved to a different musical direction in the years to follow), the singer Zazie was part of a very early stage of the GAUZE line-up in the passage from Typhus to Gauze in fall 1981. Housed in a gold laminated gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled booklet full of rare flyers, photos and original artworks.  Watch the trailer HERE

ASOCIAL “Föralltid Underground” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 185)

The masters of complete Hardcore Mangel are back with a vengeance! 12 songs of crushing Swedish Hardcore from these timeless legends mangling ears since the early ’80s!! Two years after “Död åt kapitalismen“, a new menace of uncompromised fury is ready to endanger your cardiac stability… Not only these guys were pioneers of the fastest and rawest ’80s Hardcore ever spawned from the freezing North, but they are among the few that kept the same level of intensity and anger with their recent reunion.

All the greatest features for a brutal Swedish Hardcore record are pushed to the top on this new full length, vitriolic vocals and vicious discharged riffs picturing the most apocalyptic war scenarios, solid scandicore/d-beat drumming and a kick-in-the-face production giving to all their rawness and distortion an even sicker and cruder feeling. Correct us if we fail to say that with this record we are closing the year with the best Swedish Hardcore album of 2019 and who knows for how much time more.. Watch the trailer HERE
