AGGRESSION “From the frozen vaults 1984-1986” gatefold LP+CD, NOVEMBER GRIEF “Evil-ution” LP and NOVEMBER GRIEF “To live… in this world of chaos” LP: preorders start NOW!

Summer begins to hit hard and the heat in our warehouses is turning suffocating, which means that we have to recreate the atmosphere with some equally incendiary releases, to share the hellish dimension we’re sinking in. For the first time in F.O.A.D.‘s long lasting career, we’re exploring Canada to unearth some treasures of their highly acclaimed Metal underworld of the ’80s/’90s and give them the proper F.O.A.D. treatment.

Setting our time machine in the mid ’80s Speed/Thrash meanders that gave birth to legends like Voivod, Razor, Sacrifice and many more, we have decided to put together all the early recordings of AGGRESSION – an immortal, indestructible entity still active today after 37 years (!) and delight you with “From the frozen vaults 1984-1986” LP+CD a collection of everything you need to to own from their demo era enriched by a 36 page full-colored booklet with an infinite variety of photos, flyers, zine excerpts and more. Then jumping forward to the ’90s, we picked some seriously insane Death Metal, NOVEMBER GRIEF, one of the first ever all-female Extreme metal bands together with Derketa and Mythic, and deliver their complete discography on two single LP’s, one containing their “Evil-ution” debut Demo (1994) and one with their second crushing assault “To live… in this world of chaos” + 1 comp. track (both from 1997).

So, preorders for AGGRESSIONFrom the frozen vaults 1984-1986” gatefold LP+CD, NOVEMBER GRIEFEvil-ution” LP and NOVEMBER GRIEFTo live… in this world of chaos” LP are up now via www.scareystore.com  …As always, there are some great looking diehard editions (that funeral purple for November Grief is marvelous), act fast if you want to catch them in time, they won’t last for long!

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.
