There won’t be any FOAD releases in August but fasten your seat belts because we have a massive amount of heavy artillery all set for September, expect some groundbreaking announcements soon!

More in detail about each release:

AGGRESSION “From the frozen vaults 1984-1986” gatefold LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 176)

Canadian Speed/Thrash at its finest! Long time in the works, this retrospective of early AGGRESSION recordings (1984-1986) collects all their demos and promo-tapes released before their debut album “The full treatment“, and adds a bonus CD with a complete, good sounding live set recorded in Quebec, 2/2/1986. Quoting the liner notes by Denis ‘Sasquatch’ included in this anthology: “Five metalheads playing their hearts out without any musical boundaries or restrictions. We were able to do whatever we wanted. And not only musically, we had no rules with an absolute disrespect for laws and society which got us in trouble quite a few times.

Right there in those magical years when bands like Voivod, Razor, Sacrifice, Piledriver were starting to pave the way and Canada was hosting a titanic Metal event such as the World War III Festival, AGGRESSION were spawning their early Thrashing outrages proving to be equally intense and powerful as the previously mentioned pioneers. And to keep up the F.O.A.D. tradition of maniacal attention for detail, this release comes with a gatefold jacket and a massive 36 page fanzine styled booklet with a huge selection of AGGRESSION photos (some exclusive, never seen before ones), flyers, early interviews and memorabilia of all sorts. Watch the trailer HERE

NOVEMBER GRIEF “Evil-ution” LP (F.O.A.D. 203)

Released in conjunction with the vinyl reissue of their other demo, “To live.. in this world of chaos“, “Evil-ution” (1994) was the debut recording of this all-female Death Metal horde from Montreal, Canada, founded in 1993. 7 songs + outro of the most putrid, sickening Death Metal you can picture in your mind. They quote influences like Grave, Bolt Thrower, Immolation, Autopsy, Demigod, Incantation, but on this demo they also tend to lean towards grinding territories or slow down to the most anguished bowel-stenching Doom obscurity.

For the first time on vinyl, remastered from the best source around and sounding better than ever, “Evil-ution” is a hidden gem of rotting Canadian necro-underground that needs to be exhumed and raised on the altar of Death. Layout by Annick Giroux (Temple of Mystery). Watch the trailer HERE

NOVEMBER GRIEF “To live… in this world of chaos” LP  (F.O.A.D. 204)

The band’s second demo and hands down their most brutal and aggressive offering, released in conjunction with their debut “Evil-lution” (1994). One of the earliest all-female Death Metal bands together with Derketa and Mythic. “To live… in this world of chaos” (1997) originally came out on tape, now sold at insane prices and very hard to find, and was later only reissued on CD ltd. to 200 copies. This vinyl version is remastered from the best sounding source in existence and adds 1 studio track taken from the “Awakening – Females In Extreme Music” compilation CD (1997). 9 songs + intro, if “Evil-ution” had all the bases a band needs to deliver the fiercest and most rotting Death Metal the way it has to be, “To live…” nails NG’s style into a deafening storm of darkness and merciless ferocity.  Abyssal atmospheres that range from downtuned doomish horror reminescent of Incantation moving to faster, blasting outbreaks that leave deadly wounds.

Although the band never went further, they remain an important band in the history of Quebec Death Metal, and as already mentioned, one of the first ever all-female Extreme metal bands. This classic Demo had to be brought back to life getting the proper F.O.A.D. treatment, just like “Evil-ution” this is another hidden gem of Canadian necro-underground that needs to be exhumed and raised on the altar of Death.
