Posted in Cyanamid, Janky, Releases on June 17th, 2019 by foadmaster

As we had predicted, summer on F.O.A.D. Records started with a bang! Of the two new releases that we put on preorder 10 days ago, JANKY is TOTALLY sold out and CYANAMID has the diehard splatter version completely gone and not many black vinyl copies left. As always huge thanks to all you psychos for supporting our effort and – quoting GISM – for being true “Hardcore collectors seeking the unusual“, which means that even if the stuff that we do is obviously very obscure and far from today’s musical trends, we love the fact that there is a good number of maniacs like us still thirsty for these lost gems and that enjoy to dig into the most remote niches of the underground scenes from every corner of the planet!! You can be sure that the saga will continue because we have a multitude of projects and ideas in the making, for example next month we promise to leave you with jaws on the ground at even more insane levels! So CYANAMIDThis is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD and JANKYDead society 1983-1987” LP are both out now and JANKY is sold out, you can still be lucky to find a copy of it through our usual distributors worldwide.. As for CYANAMID – be quick to secure a copy of the black vinyl version if you haven’t already, summer festivals are coming and the remaining copies won’t last for long!

More details :

CYANAMID “This is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD  (F.O.A.D. 170)

1984.. the band that played faster than anyone else in the world, with proto-grindcore blast beats running way faster than SIEGE, REPULSION or early D.R.I...  They only left a devastating 7″ called “Stop the world” and few tracks on the “NJ got it?“Compilation LP and were mentioned among the early Agathocles influences or by few maniacs in the tape-trading circles searching for the craziest and most radical sonic atrocities. We’re talking of the legendary CYANAMID !!!  Quoting Erich Keller (Fear Of God / Off The Disk): “CYANAMID were probably one of the most influential bands of the 80s – but nobody knows it. When I still was heavily into that “can’t get enuff of noise” mood, CYANAMID blew me away and definately wanted me to start my own thing. The kids sometimes forget that there were basically two paths leading to that “Grindcore” thing – one from the metal side and this was the other one. Everything about their “Stop the world” 7″ is the way it should be – the sound smokes, the songs are either outbursts of chaos and energy or then they come crawlin’ in a FLIPPERish way”.

This review nails it perfectly, because alternated to the short, manic fast tracks you get some downtuned, slower (yes.. Flipper-ish!) and completely unpredictable tunes increasing the sense of violence and insanity that this amazing band was able to create. Many PowerViolence acts of the early ’90s did this not ever knowing that one decade earlier there was someone adopting the same formula in such a brutal way.  This F.O.A.D. anthology finally makes justice to these pioneering heroes, it collects their complete discography 1983-2014 mastered from reels and the best sounding sources in existence.. 51 songs! It has it all: “Stop the world” 7″, “New Jersey’s got it?” comp. trax, extra Transaudio studios out takes 1984, “I love NJ” tape and bonus live CD 1983-2014!!

Full colored booklet with rare photos, flyers, original artworks, zine excerpts, liner notes and mysteries solved about their “I love NJ” demotape. Watch the trailer HERE

Black vinyl limited to 300 copies

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

JANKY “Dead society 1983-1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 163)  SOLD OUT!!

Records strikes back once again focusing on the Kanagawa area (Systematic Death, Mad Conflux, Battle Attacker, Toxic Noise etc) delivering another classic band from the early days… JANKY! This LP collects the complete discography (1983-1987) of this raging Yokohama City Hardcore unit that embodied the true spirit of the Japanese Metal/Punk street-warriors of the ’80s.. 16 songs including their “Low life” flexi disc (1984), split flexi with Mad Conflux (1987) and the rare “Dirty party” compilation tape. LP with OBI strip and a stunning fanzine styled booklet with rare photos, original art and gig flyers all provided by the band! JANKY were playing intense, straight-forward Hardcore with touches of ’80s Metal/Punk in a Japanese way, they shared members with the early line-up of SYSTEMATIC DEATH.. so you get the picture!  Watch the trailer HERE

TOTALLY SOLD OUT ON PREORDER

JANKY “Dead society 1983-1987” LP and CYANAMID “This is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD… preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Cyanamid, Janky, Pre Orders, Releases on June 6th, 2019 by foadmaster

After a scorching May release schedule that saw F.O.A.D. diving into the ’80s Italian Hardcore/Punk inferno with the colossal “Dritti contro un muro” book and the unforgettable Death Side + Mustang performances at Venezia Hardcore Fest in conjunction with the launch of Mustang‘s brand new ripper “Mind wandering“, we’re ready to enter the summer with an even more deadly blow.  Once again we cast on a territory that for us is increasingly friendly and habitual: Japan and its boundless Hardcore scene! In the past years we have proved several times our love for this country’s underground made of incredibly intense and aggressive bands… we released Systematic Death, Sodom, Mad Conflux, Battle Attacker, Juntess, Vulgarity Kids, Napalm, Mustang, Toxic Noise and more. A piece that was missing in our excursions through the Kanagawa prefecture was the legendary JANKY, one of the earliest Hardcore units from that area, if you consider that some of their members were also involved in the original line-up of Systematic Death.

So here we are with their complete discography LP including all their existing recordings. The other treat on the plate for this month is something even more radical and annihilating. Another house specialty over the last few years has been to dig up those pioneering bands that have planted the roots of what later evolved into extreme music genres such as Grindcore, Noisecore, PowerViolence, going far beyond the wiki-shit clichés that always highlight the 4-5 usual names that you’ve all heard. Our hunt for those who were blasting at the speed of light in unsuspected times brought to light bands such as The Corporate Whores, S.L.O.D., Decapitation, Rapt, FCDN Tormentor and many more.. But a fundamental name was missing to the list: CYANAMID from New Jersey.

Of all those mentioned, they were probably the faster. So we made it, a super-exhaustive discography including all their studio works + a huge selection of demo and live material. It took months and months of stubborn researches going through the archives of the sickest collectors and tape traders of the past, but this is the best sounding and most complete Cyanamid collection you can dream of! So, JANKYDead society 1983-1987” LP and CYANAMIDThis is hell – A NJ Hardcore anthology” LP+CD are up for preorders…  As usual there are some spectacular diehard editions on splatter vinyl, you know they won’t last for long, so blast fast!

DRITTI CONTRO UN MURO book and MUSTANG “Mind wandering” LP: preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Mustang, Pre Orders, Releases on May 7th, 2019 by foadmaster

[scroll down for the English version]

I preordini F.O.A.D. di questo mese sono interamente dedicati a due uscite che verranno presentate in anteprima al Venezia Hardcore Festival nei giorni 10 e 11 Maggio. La prima delle due va completamente fuori dal nostro standard di etichetta discografica, si tratta infatti di un libro e nello specifico di un progetto di cui si parla da anni, rimasto in cantiere per moltissimo tempo e finalmente giunto ad un punto di svolta grazie alla collaborazione tra F.O.A.D. Records e Giorgio Senesi / MeleMarce. Nella sconfinata discografia F.O.A.D. un punto saldo che si ripropone periodicamente è l’Hardcore/Punk Italiano degli anni Ottanta, al quale abbiamo sempre dato largo spazio con ristampe di band del calibro di Raw Power, Nerorgasmo, Blue Vomit, Upset Noise, Peggio Punx, Crash Box, Eu’s Arse, Atrox, Underage e altri ancora… senza dimenticare il documentario/DVD “Italian Punk/Hardcore” anche in questo caso realizzato in collaborazione con il team LoveHate80 (di cui faceva parte Giorgio Senesi).

Alla proposta di poter pubblicare un libro tutto incentrato sui protagonisti della prima ondata Hardcore Italiana abbiamo pensato che anche se non si tratta di un supporto discografico come nostra consuetudine, è comunque di un’uscita totalmente in linea col nostro stile e con quello in cui abbiamo investito passione ed energia per tanti anni. Eccoci quindi ad annunciare “DRITTI CONTRO UN MURO” a cura di Giorgio Senesi, il libro definitivo sulla scena Punk/Hardcore Italiana degli anni ’80. I preordini sono disponibili a partire da ora ai link sottostanti, la data ufficiale di uscita è il 20 Maggio 2019, occhio alla limitatissima edizione in copertina rigida con poster, numerata a mano.. non durerà a lungo! L’altra uscita che abbiamo preparato in tempo per il VEHC è il nuovo album di un gruppo che suonerà al festival e per la primissima volta in Italia, ovvero i MUSTANG da Hakodate City nel Nord del Giappone, con il loro Hardcore adrenalinico e da “spiriti incandescenti” che combina rabbia, potenza a un fantastico lavoro di chitarra a cura del mitico Benkei, da sempre mente dei CRUDE e ora secondo chitarrista degli iconici DEATH SIDE.

Mind wandering” LP è composto da 6 pezzi rapidi e altamente originali sia come impatto che come malgama di influenze nella loro struttura. Realizzato in coproduzione con Break The Records di Tokyo, limitato a 300 copie. La tiratura F.O.A.D. di 150 copie è interamente in vinile azzurro marmorizzato, disponibile in preordine a partire da ora.

F.O.A.D.‘s preorder schedule for May is entirely based on two releases that will be premiered at Italy’s biggest and most popular DIY Hardcore Festival, we’re talking of Venezia Hardcore Festival of course. The first one that we’re about to introduce is something quite out of our standards of record label mostly focused on vinyl outputs… it’s a BOOK! Yes, a book that has been in the works for approx. 15 years (!) and that is finally seeing the light thanks to the collaboration that recently started between us and the guy who wrote it and put it together. In the endless F.O.A.D. discography a steady point that is periodically re-established is our love for Italian Hardcore/Punk of the 80’s, to which we have always given wide space with reissues of bands of the caliber of Raw Power, Nerorgasmo, Blue Vomit, Upset Noise, Peggio Punx , Crash Box, Eu’s Arse, Atrox, Underage and more … not forgetting the documentary DVD “Italian Punk/Hardcore” released in collaboration with LoveHate80. Click HERE for the trailer!

So when we’ve been asked if we would have liked the idea of publishing a book all centered on the first wave of Italian Hardcore/Punk (1981-1989) we didn’t think twice and promptly accepted as it totally fits our line of releases and a world on which we have focused a lot through the years. So we’re glad to present “DRITTI CONTRO UN MURO” by Giorgio Senesi, the ultimate book about the Italian Hardcore/Punk scene of the ’80s. We know, it’s all written in Italian, but if you’re like us a diehard maniac of these bands think about the fact that just the endless amount of photos, flyers and memorabilia included makes it worth adding it to your collection! Preorders start now, official release date is May 20th. Note that there is an ultra-limited diehard version with hardbound cover + poster, hand numbered and ltd to 50 (!!).. Act fast if you want to secure it to your shelves! And the second thing that we’re premiering at VEHC is the brand new 12″ by a band that will perform at the festival, hailing from Hakodate City, Japan, nothing else but the mighty MUSTANG!

This power-trio consists of members of CRUDE and ETAE and it’s also worth mentioning that their guitarist Benkei is now playing in Tokyo’s HC legend DEATH SIDE!!  This new effort is called “Mind wandering” and it’s co-released with our friends at Break The Records, only 300 copies pressed (BTR = 150 x orange, FOAD = 150 x swirl light blue).

Posted in Atrox, D.P.C.D., Raw Power, Releases on April 24th, 2019 by foadmaster

It’s always a huge pleasure to see new F.O.A.D. releases arrive at our warehouse and also for this April 2019 the mission is accomplished! Three absolute Hardcore Punk ragers are ready to contaminate your record shelves! ATROXHardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD and D.P.C.D.Confidencial + demo” LP are out now on F.O.A.D. Records!! But that’s not all… we said 3!! Yes, because RAW POWERReptile house -XX Anniversary” picture LP+CD was sold out so quickly that we had to repress it immediately, so for those who didn’t get it yet, don’t miss the chance, this classic Italian Hardcore asskicker is available again, including both the original devastating session of two decades ago and a brand new re-recording of those tracks delivered with the same intensity and energy!!

More in detail about each release:

ATROX “Hardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 154)

ATROX started in Milano, Italy in the early ’80s and were part of the legendary “furious years“, the first wave of bands delivering that fast and raging style that became a distinctive trademark for Italian Hardcore / Punk and that saw bands like Wretched, Indigesti, Peggio Punx, Impact, Negazione, Declino, Raw Power, CCM, Bloody Riot as the main exponents of that era. ATROX were playing a full on speed yet catchy Hardcore… listening to their early sounds you can discern influences from US bands like Dead Kennedys, M.D.C., early D.R.I. however with a very strong Italian Punk imprint, not far from what bands like Crash Box and Peggio Punx were doing at the same time. This collection includes all their existing recordings spanning from 1985 to 1989, prior to their debut full length “Fiori neri“. This means all their hard to find cassettes: “Senza tregua” (1985), “Orme perdute” (1986), “Aldo moro lived HC” (1988), the ultra-rare “Live at Concobeach” tape 1986 ltd. to less than 30 copies (!) and some totally unreleased rehearsals.

46 songs drawing a complete overview of their roots. LP including their two studio demos and bonus CD compiling both live tapes and the unreleased rehearsals. All mastered from 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes provided by the band. Comes with a fanzine styled A4 booklet all the original artworks and inserts from the tapes included, photos, lyrics and more. Highly recommended for those into the best days of Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC maniacs in general. Click HERE for a little preview!

Swirl pus-yellow vinyl limited to 100 copies

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

D.P.C.D. “Confidencial + Demo” LP (F.O.A.D. 166)

D.P.C.D. stands for DECESO POR CAUSA DESCONOCIDA. This incredible band hails from Chile, a country whose Hardcore / Punk scene isn’t much under the international spotlights but is currently very active and vital and hides a lot of interesting revelations and DIY labels like Tobi Records releasing gems to be discovered.  D.P.C.D. play a perfect blend of South American Punk / Hardcore and dark-soaked DeathRock.

The energy and distortion of the most genuine 80’s inspired Hardcore channeled through sinister Dark Punk atmospheres, we dare to say  like a Chilean answer to NERORGASMO!  This LP includes a brand new session called “Confidencial” and a remastered version of their amazing Demo 2016 that made the F.O.A.D. Records team fall in love with their sound and offer them this debut on LP. An absolute must if you like LatinoAmerican Punk of all eras played with intensity, sincerity and full-throttle anger! Come with lyrics/photos insert. Click HERE for a little preview!

ATROX “Hardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP + CD and D.P.C.D. “Confidencial + Demo” LP: preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Atrox, D.P.C.D., Pre Orders, Releases on April 9th, 2019 by foadmaster

Ready for some new outrages on vinyl on F.O.A.D. Records?  You know that we like to keep a big variety of underground genres in our schedule, so if the last month was an all out assault of Blurr / Noisecore terror (Crawl Noise) and pioneering Black/Death morbidity (Poison), now we’re heading back to total Hardcore / Punk territories. Those who have been following our releases since some years know that F.O.A.D. is highly specialized in bringing back to light the true gems of the first wave of Italian Hardcore, you’ve seen it with Raw Power, Upset Noise, Underage, Crash Box, Declino, Peggio Punx, Nerorgasmo and many more. The band that we’re introducing this time was formed in Milano (the city of Wretched, Kobra and more) in the ’80s and their early recordings were a highly energetic concentrate of speed, rage and catchy riffs. We’re talking of ATROX!  We decided to put together all their 1985-1988 recordings, that since now were only released on tape back in the day, the most being very limited and hard to find. This “Hardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD collection includes them all for a total of 46 songs, the LP compiling the two studio demos and the CD all their live stuff + some unreleased rehearsals. Plus an extensive fanzine styled booklet with all the original artworks, lyrics, photos and more. In few words, the definitive ATROX ’80s anthology collecting all their recordings before their debut LP “Fiori neri“.

The second announcement is something completely different… and somehow a great revelations coming out of our constant work of listening to hundreds of demos from every corner of the globe, hunting obscurities, giving a chance to even the most remote cassette. From the day that we discovered the almighty Chilean label Tobi Records, we became obsessed in collecting their fantastic releases. Out of their roster of a multitude of good bands (that we strongly recommend you to check out and support), one of our favorite finds was hands down D.P.C.D. (Deceso Por Causa Desconocida). Their demo has all the elements that we wish to hear from a good Latino/American Hardcore band: rage, distortion and at the top of it a very sinister Dark Rock mood enriched by an excellent vocal line in Spanish. D.P.C.D. is a great new revelation and deserves to be heard. Follow the advice of a team of maniacs listening piles of demos every day, this one really drove us crazy, it never lets you down from start to finish, it kills!   So… ATROXHardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD and D.P.C.D. “Confidencial + Demo” LP are up for preorders, release date set for April 22nd 2019. Both are limited to 300 with some swirl vinyl diehard editions ltd. to 100 that as with all F.O.A.D. releases won’t last for long.. be fast!

More in detail about each release:

ATROX “Hardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 154)

ATROX started in Milano, Italy in the early ’80s and were part of the legendary “furious years“, the first wave of bands delivering that fast and raging style that became a distinctive trademark for Italian Hardcore / Punk and that saw bands like Wretched, Indigesti, Peggio Punx, Impact, Negazione, Declino, Raw Power, CCM, Bloody Riot as the main exponents of that era. ATROX were playing a full on speed yet catchy Hardcore… listening to their early sounds you can discern influences from US bands like Dead Kennedys, M.D.C., early D.R.I. however with a very strong Italian Punk imprint, not far from what bands like Crash Box and Peggio Punx were doing at the same time. This collection includes all their existing recordings spanning from 1985 to 1989, prior to their debut full length “Fiori neri“. This means all their hard to find cassettes: “Senza tregua” (1985), “Orme perdute” (1986), “Aldo moro lived HC” (1988), the ultra-rare “Live at Concobeach” tape 1986 ltd. to less than 30 copies (!) and some totally unreleased rehearsals.

46 songs drawing a complete overview of their roots. LP including their two studio demos and bonus CD compiling both live tapes and the unreleased rehearsals. All mastered from 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes provided by the band. Comes with a fanzine styled A4 booklet all the original artworks and inserts from the tapes included, photos, lyrics and more. Highly recommended for those into the best days of Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC maniacs in general. Click HERE for a little preview!

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

D.P.C.D. “Confidencial + Demo” LP (F.O.A.D. 166)

D.P.C.D. stands for DECESO POR CAUSA DESCONOCIDA. This incredible band hails from Chile, a country whose Hardcore / Punk scene isn’t much under the international spotlights but is currently very active and vital and hides a lot of interesting revelations and DIY labels like Tobi Records releasing gems to be discovered.  D.P.C.D. play a perfect blend of South American Punk / Hardcore and dark-soaked DeathRock.

The energy and distortion of the most genuine 80’s inspired Hardcore channeled through sinister Dark Punk atmospheres, we dare to say  like a Chilean answer to NERORGASMO!  This LP includes a brand new session called “Confidencial” and a remastered version of their amazing Demo 2016 that made the F.O.A.D. Records team fall in love with their sound and offer them this debut on LP. An absolute must if you like LatinoAmerican Punk of all eras played with intensity, sincerity and full-throttle anger! Come with lyrics/photos insert. Click HERE for a little preview!
