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

Black vinyl limited to 200 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!
