Posted in Mad Conflux, Pre Orders, Releases, S.L.O.D. on March 28th, 2017 by foadmaster

Just in time to recover from the avalanche of brain squeezing Thrash that we delivered few weeks ago with Cryptic Slaughter and Attomica, and we’re back again with another onset of speed + sonic violence… And with immense pleasure we’re proud to introduce one more Japanese Hardcore discography (after delivering the likes of NAPALM, The GEROGERIGEGEGE, TOXIC NOISE and Q.O.P.) with the double LP version of MAD CONFLUX‘s “Crazy Action Party“, a 43 song beast of the fastest and most intense Japanese Hardcore for all you maniacs loving bands like Outo, Gauze, Systematic Death, Lipcream, S.O.B. and so on… And to keep things equally noisy and extreme we have decided to match them with an ultra-obscure cult of the pioneering proto-grind era… one of the very first Death Metal (at blasting speeds) atrocities to appear on the Yugoslavian territory back in 1986… SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH!!  So get ready for the massacre: MAD CONFLUXCrazy action party” gatefold 2xLP and S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP are up for preorders!! Both releases will be premiered at FOAD records‘ stand in Utrecht/Holland at the unmissable Mega Record Fair on April 8-9 and we’ll start to ship all orders on April 11th. As usual our advice is to act fast if you want to catch the limited mailorder versions on colored vinyl as they’re expected to sell out quickly!

Now more in detail about each release:

MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” 2xLP gatefold + booklet (F.O.A.D. 120)

Another crazy Japanese Hardcore release on FOAD RecordsMAD CONFLUX were one of the greatest thrashing HC units to come out from the Yokosuka/Yokohama area… just like SYSTEMATIC DEATH, RAISE CAIN, TOXIC NOISE, PILE DRIVER, BATTLE ATTACKER and many more. These psychos terrorized the masses from 1985 to 1991 delivering some of the fastest and most addictive HC with that skate-thrash vibe that made the late ’80s/early ’90s Japancore scene so unique and unmatched. Their discography is fragmented on several compilation appearances and the hard to find split flexi 7″ (1987) with JANKY.  They self-released a limited discography CD in 2005 that got instantly sold out. This double LP includes all their existing studio and live recordings (43 songs!) for the first time on vinyl, scrupulously remastered from the best sounding sources to properly incinerate your eardrums. It comes in a highly deluxe packaging with weighty gatefold sleeve and ’80s fanzine styled booklet including photos, gig flyers and biographical notes written by their guitarist Ori, also playing in PILE DRIVER and in the current line-up of the mighty DEATH SIDE!!

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on dirty white vinyl with red splattering limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies

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

S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP (F.O.A.D. 123)

Hailing from ex Yugoslavia, SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH stand as one of the most obscure and extreme Death/Thrashcore hordes surfaced in the mid ’80s, worshipped by tape trades of the time as one of the fastest and sickest blasting monstrosities of the pre-grindcore era! They are considered as probably the earliest Death Metal act from Slovenia (and all ex-Yugo) and their first and only demotape was a sort of virtually non-existent cult mentioned on a handful of ‘zines and rarely quoted by the later generation of Noise/Grind pioneers (Jan Agathocles among them) among the oldest incarnations of the blastcore formula. Musically, they remind of South American slaughterers like BLASFEMIA, PARABELLUM, HOLOCAUSTO but way faster and more chaotic, with a sinister feeling of evil and gloom surrounding them.

Quoting Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag / Decibel Of Death): “Man I surely did ate this recording like crazy back in the day…. That noise was so fresh and we had already been used to the likes of ACRID, EVOKED DOOM, early POISON, ARSENIC and the likes so nothing could frighten us at that point haha! I also recall getting this recording in the mail via Shane Embury from his WARHAMMER days… The cool tape trading days. I had no choice than review it in my zine, D.O.D., from that point because it was so magnificently extreme!” Now finally this ultra-obscure gem comes back from the dead getting the proper FOAD treatment, mastered from the best sounding source in existence. One sided LP with a silk screened original art silk screened on the flipside. Incudes an insert with lyrics, drawings and liner notes.

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on red vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 200 copies

UNITED AS ONE FESTIVAL terza edizione: prime conferme!

Posted in Events on March 27th, 2017 by foadmaster

F.O.A.D. Records e MP Promotion, in collaborazione con P.H.C. sono lieti di presentare lo “UNITED AS ONE FESTIVAL III OPEN AIR“, che si terrà Venerdì 30 Giugno presso il campo sportivo del Circolo Kaleidos in Via Bologna 1 a Poviglio (RE). Il festival giunto quest’anno alla terza edizione, unisce come sua tradizione nomi di spicco della scena Thrash, Hardcore e Grind internazionale!

Headliner della serata saranno i mitici D.R.I. americani, veri e propri capostipiti dell’Hardcore più veloce ed adrenalinico e di quello che nella seconda metà degli anni ’80 si è evoluto in Crossover/Thrash. Attivi dal 1982, i Dirty Rotten Imbeciles hanno influenzato una miriade di band dal Metal al Punk (su tutti gli Slayer, che li hanno omaggiati con la spettacolare cover di “Violent Pacification” nel loro “Undisputed Attitude”). Per l’occasione presenteranno i brani dal loro nuovo EP “But wait… there’s more!” insieme a una mitragliata di classici dai loro album anni Ottanta come “Crossover”, “Dealing with it” e il “Dirty Rotten LP”. Data esclusiva Italiana!

Altro ospite di tutto rispetto, sempre dagli Stati Uniti (per l’esattezza da Portland, Oregon) i WEHRMACHT!! Attaccano per la seconda volta i palchi Italiani (il loro tour del 2010 è rimasto impresso a tanti per gli show devastanti affiancati dai Cripple Bastards), con il loro Thrashcore al cardiopalma lanciato a velocità disumane. Anche loro come i D.R.I. e i Cryptic Slaughter sono stati tra i capostipiti del crossover anni 80 che fondeva la furia e la rapidità dell’Hardcore con l’impatto e la tecnica del Thrash. Questa sarà la loro unica data Europea e in scaletta potete aspettarvi una selezione da infarto che attingerà dai classici “Shark Attack” e “Biermacht”… United shoebrothers!

Ad estremizzare ulteriormente la serata ci penseranno i GENERAL SURGERY Svedesi, maestri del Gore/Grind “patologico” più efferato. Formati nel 1988 da componenti di Carbonized e Dismember, questo malatissimo combo Scandinavo ha saputo combinare con precisione letale la scuola Gore/Grind dei primi Carcass con le sonorità tipiche del Death Metal Svedese. Anche loro non si vedono in Italia dal 2010 e promettono un repertorio che ripercorre tutta la loro sanguinaria carriera. Unica data in Italia!

A breve verranno annunciate le altre band che completeranno il bill del festival.

CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “The Lowlife Chronicles 1984-1988” digipack CD/DVD and ATTOMICA “s/t” gatefold LP are out NOW!!

Posted in Attomica, Cryptic Slaughter, Releases on March 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

The moment has finally arrived! The two latest nuclear devices by F.O.A.D. Records are finally out and ready to drop on your stereo! “The lowlife chronicles 1984-1988” CD/DVD, also known as the definitive document about the life of Cryptic Slaughter, and the first legendary self titled album by Brazilian thrash legends Attomica are in the F.O.A.D. headquarters and almost all the preorders have been packed and shipped! You can also have a sneak peek at the contents of the amazing Cryptic Slaughter documentary in this trailer video, as an appetizer for the full feature!

More in detail about each release:

 

– CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “The Lowlife Chronicles 1984-1988” Digipack CD/DVD (F.O.A.D. 118)

The definitive Cryptic Slaughter release on FOAD Records! This project has been years in the making to reach the best possible result. A nearly 2 hours DVD tracing the band’s history from 1984 till the “Stream Of Consciousness” era in 1988. Includes tons of live footage and exclusive interviews with band members and other musicians (MUNICIPAL WASTE, REPULSION, HATEBREED, FEAR FACTORY, HIRAX etc..etc…). And there’s more… a CD full of rarities (rehearsals, outtakes etc) and soundboard live material selected from 9 different shows 1985-1988, ranging from the early “Life in grave” times to the “Convicted” and “Money Talks” sets.

31 SONGS of the fastest and most influential US Hardcore / Thrash ever conceived! Housed in a 8-panel digipack including 2 booklets packed with rare photos, flyers and original artworks. As we always say: if you’re into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are M.A.D. if you miss any Cryptic Slaughter release!

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

 

– ATTOMICA “s/t” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 119)

Another South American Thrash milestone on FOAD Records! 1987… among the hordes of death-thrashing maniacs raising from the blood soaked Brazilian underground, ATTOMICA from the São Paulo area sinks its teeth and claws in first with their “Children’s Assassin” Demo (1986) and then with the ultra-crude self titled debut that still now is considered by many their most classic release. This is some of rawest and most aggressive death tinged Thrash Metal you can think of. A solid collision of caustic neck-breaking riffs, fast ‘n’ tight drumming at occasion speeding up to blast beat levels and some merciless screaming vocals reminescent of early Kreator, giving to the whole thing an utter feeling of cruelty and malignancy.

Despite the many CD reissues, this classic full length hasn’t been reissued on vinyl since the original first press on Equinox (1988), so nearly 30 years! And most important, this new edition on special 160 grams vinyl is with no doubt the best sounding one you can find around, as it has been specially mastered from an uncompressed 1st generation source that unlike the ultra-“squashed” remastered CD versions gives a lot of range and dynamics to the warmness of the original production. Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve enriched with rare and unreleased photos from the band’s early times. If you’re like us an insane fanatic of Brazil’s Death/Thrash golden era (Mutilator, Holocausto, Chakal, Vulcano, Dorsal Atlantica, early Sepultura and tons more) this LP should be a mandatory addition to your collection!

Die-hard orange vinyl limited to 100 copies

POISON “Sons Of Evil” LP (F.O.A.D. 082)

2nd pressing on blood red and ultra-clear vinyl!

Pure infernal armageddon, not for the weak!! One of the most deviated, disgusting and anti-musical Death Metal aberrations ever conceived. 2nd pressing on FOAD Records, this LP is made exactly as the cassette version that was circulating in the 80s! Originally released in 1984, “Sons of evil” is the first demo recording from the malevolent and sinister German entity known as POISON. This sounds so raw and extreme that even the band members took their time to decide whether to license a vinyl reissue or not, and the graal got unlocked only when after years of research through the most insane puritan collectors, we tracked a source whose quality was even “better” than the masters owned by the band and got it properly restored and mastered by our wizard H.O.D. at Toxic Basement studio. So one thing is sure: this LP is the matchless, best sounding version of “Sons of evil” you can dream about.  Now quoting what has been already said about this gem: as primitive and barbaric as a Stone Age gang-rape, this tape is possessed by total darkness and evil. Musically, this runs the gamut from morbidly mid-paced to intense and somewhat insane. It bears no real similarities to any of their German counterparts, such as Sodom, Destruction or Kreator. The slower parts sound very reminiscent of Hellhammer. The vocals of Virgin Slaughter are possessed and maniacal, at times, his demonic voice actually accentuates the dark mood of the music, rather than detracting from it. As for the rest of the songwriting, this is like a war on the senses. Primitive and violent in nature, the riffs saw through you while the drums pound your skull into oblivion. It is almost difficult to believe something so bestial and grotesque existed back in 1984. The sound is on the same level as the “Death By Metal” demo, from Mantas, and makes the old Venom and Bathory records seem like they were done in high-dollar facilities. “Sons of Evil” is a monstrous offering from a band that had truly tapped into something dark and aggressive.  Includes a booklet printed on old school fanzine styled light blue paper, with rare photos, flyers and excerpts from zines/mags of that era!

TRACKLIST:

side A:
1) The omen 2) Inferno breaks out 3) Black death 4) Demon 5) Reaper 6) Possessed 7) Angel of Satan / March to hades
side B:
1) Satan’s damnation 2) Legions of hell 3) Leather and metal 4) Hell of the living dead 5) Slaughter 6) Gonna make you die

– V.A. “DIS-CASSETTES” 8x tape Boxset  (FOAD on tape #20)

A dream for every Swedish Hardcore/Punk enthusiast!!  This is a high quality replica of the complete “Dis-cassettes” discography 1983-1985 in a wonderful set of 8 pro-made tapes including all the original covers, booklets + extra liner notes and infos. It comes in a white cardboard boxset with 5 stickers on.

Dis-cassettes” was the DIY label run by Håkan of Asocial and Distrust. All his releases were impressive for the amount of love and dedication that he put on the quality and style of each issue… being the originals extremely hard to find (some are on Discogs from 300 euro up!) we agreed with him to make them available again in this limited edition boxset for the true maniacs. The sound has been remastered from 1st generation sources and the new tapes have been professionally dubbed under constant tests to make sure to get the best possible audio quality. Bands included are mostly Swedish HC ragers like ASOCIAL, SVART PARAD, DISTRUST etc… but there are some international names as well.

So here’s what you’ll find in the Dis-boxset:

Dis 001 – ”No war no more vol 1” V/A
(Kurt i Kuvös, Asocial, Distrust and B.T.D.)

ISOLATION AS CULT “Phase #2” flexi disc Ep out now on Slaughterhouse Records, officially distributed by FOAD/Scareystore!!

Posted in Isolation As Cult on February 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

We’re proud to announce that ISOLATION AS CULT have just released a new flexi disc EP on Slaughterhouse Records (Toxic Basement Studio‘s own label) and FOAD/Scareystore is the official distributor of this horrendous aural hecatomb!

One year after the sonic decimation of their 90 song Split 7″ with Aborticidio on FOAD Records, ISOLATION AS CULT returns with a new overdose of anti-musical virulence. 113 songs of complete Noisecore nihilism, hopeless and exacerbated to the most insane thresholds, combining the old school extremism of 7MON, Fear Of God, VNA, AxCx, early Cripple Bastards with Japanese filthnoisepunk influences (Gai, Confuse, Toxo-Vomit, State Children)!!

IAC from Italy is a revived early ’90s aberration of GTB from Cripple Bastards teaming up with HOD, chief of the infamous “Toxic Basement Studio” from which most FOAD releases are conceived and properly mastered for vinyl. If you’re a nostalgic of late 80s / early 90s short song Noisecore in the vein of Stench Of Corpse, Sore Throat, Crawl Noise and so on, this is exactly that kind of madness. Round cut, green flexi disc limited to 250 copies!
