Posted in Asocial, Bayonet, Releases, Sodom, Yacopsae on December 20th, 2019 by foadmaster

We are finally approaching the end of 2019 and with this batch of 4x releases coming out today we’re closing what has been the most prolific year ever in F.O.A.D.‘s history…  31 releases in one year!! For a totally independent underground label based in the “Europe’s arse” as we are it’s a really astonishing result and if on one hand we’re proud of the hard work that brought us here, on the other we want to thank you all for supporting us and for enjoying these records, each one of these pieces of vinyl is backed by stories of dedication, friendship and above all enthusiasm crawling through the most impenetrable crypts of the fastest, noisiest Metal/Hardcore sickness of different eras.

So as previously announced, this is what we have on our end-year table:  BAYONETTaste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD, SODOMSt. Requiem” 2nd press LP+7″, ASOCIALFöralltid Underground” LP and YACOPSAETimeo ergo sum” CD. They are all out now and we’re rushing to ship all your preorders. Please be patient because even if everything will be mailed before Xmas, this is a period in which the postal service is extremely congested and considerable delays are quite common. So don’t worry if it takes a bit longer than what you expect. The diehard piss yellow version of BAYONET is completely sold out on preorder and the splatter one for ASOCIAL is almost finished too, act fast if you’re interested in these new F.O.A.D. outputs because they’re going fast!

More in detail about each release:

BAYONET “Taste of piss 1982-83” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 179)

Just when you thought that there were no diamonds left to be unearthed from the worshipped vaults of the early ’80s Finnish Hardcore scene, F.O.A.D. Records is ready to shock you with a lost&found classic that nobody was aware of, not even the psychos from the most diehard tape-trading circles. BAYONET have remained an obscurity also among Punks in their native land. Perhaps it has faded into somewhat a mystery as they had virtually no contributions to the thriving scene of Finland in 1982 and 1983 – the very little while they existed…  A shit-quality bootleg 7″ came to light few years ago, but it really didn’t make justice to the fact that these guys had two incredible studio recordings that they didn’t send anywhere at that time, and that were unearthed just recently thanks to the help of a friend that contacted a band member and triggered the gear that made us get here.

So if you’re a fan of raw and fast Suomi HC/Punk and turn crazy for bands such as Kaaos, Rattus, Bastards, Terveet Kädet, Varaus, Sorto, Riistetyt, Kansan Uutiset and dozens more, this 49 song discography by BAYONET needs to be an instant add-on to your collection. Needless to say that it’s all mastered from the best sounding sources in existence. These guys claim they were influenced by early ’80s US Hardcore but the style is actually what we all love of Finnish HC, a bloody chaotic inferno of speed and brutal distortion. This collection includes their two studio sessions “Taste of piss” and “Finger in a deep arsehole” plus bonus rehearsals, songs from the rare “Ilkivalta” compilation tape and the recording of the only live they ever made! It comes with an insert including a lengthy interview to Seppo and Nikke run by Otto Itkonen (Selfish, Forca Macabra, Kuolema, Kovaa Rasvaa etc..) plus some photos. To cut it short, this is a total must for every maniac of raw and chaotic early ’80s Hardcore!  Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl ltd. to 200

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

SODOM ソドム “St.Requiem” Gatefold LP+7″ 2nd pressing (F.O.A.D. 150)

2nd pressing with golden sleeves (the first was all silver). A treasure of Japanese Hardcore/Punk finally seeing the light on vinyl in a deluxe version authorized by the band and all mastered in a process of years under supervision of the singer Zazie. This collection includes the cult “St. Requiem” tape-album (1984) and a bonus EP with the “ADK Omnibus” tracks (1983) cut at 45rpm for the best sounding sonic impact. 25 songs in total.

St. Requiem” stands with no doubt as one of the best Japanese Hardcore tapes released in the ’80s, it combines rapid fast Hardcore bursts with some dark, claustrophobic atmospheres that were characterizing the sound of several bands released by the legendary ADK Records label.

And talking of the pioneering status of this great band (that moved to a different musical direction in the years to follow), the singer Zazie was part of a very early stage of the GAUZE line-up in the passage from Typhus to Gauze in fall 1981. Housed in a gold laminated gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled booklet full of rare flyers, photos and original artworks.  Watch the trailer HERE

Half-half colored vinyl (gold and black) ltd. to 250 copies

Splatter vinyl (gold stripes on crystal clear wax) ltd. to 250 copies

ASOCIAL “Föralltid Underground” gatefold LP  (F.O.A.D. 185)

The masters of complete Hardcore Mangel are back with a vengeance! 12 songs of crushing Swedish Hardcore from these timeless legends mangling ears since the early ’80s!! Two years after “Död åt kapitalismen“, a new menace of uncompromised fury is ready to endanger your cardiac stability… Not only these guys were pioneers of the fastest and rawest ’80s Hardcore ever spawned from the freezing North, but they are among the few that kept the same level of intensity and anger with their recent reunion.

All the greatest features for a brutal Swedish Hardcore record are pushed to the top on this new full length, vitriolic vocals and vicious discharged riffs picturing the most apocalyptic war scenarios, solid scandicore/d-beat drumming and a kick-in-the-face production giving to all their rawness and distortion an even sicker and cruder feeling. Correct us if we fail to say that with this record we are closing the year with the best Swedish Hardcore album of 2019 and who knows for how much time more.. Watch the trailer HERE

The return of Germany’s fastest band ever, 24 songs of neck-breaking Hardcore/PowerViolence at impossible blasting speed!  After almost 30 years since their inception, these maniacs show no sign of sitting down, if you loved their previous effort “Tanz, grozny tanz“, this is the same level of rage and craziness, reaching an even tighter and annihilating dimension. And it’s the last recording featuring Emu on drums, but for no reason this is the end of an era, they’re already back setting stages on fire with a renewed line-up pulverizing asses with the same amount of aggression and ballistic precision. So get ready for a new cyclone of unstoppable Turbo Speed Violence!! SCHNELLER!  Watch the trailer HERE

F.O.A.D. never rests, so here’s our 3rd release to end the month!! Due to high demand, we decided to make ASOCIALDöd åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP available again. This incredible rager released for the first time exactly 1 year ago marks the devastating return of these Swedish Hardcore/Punk pioneers with 10 tracks of the fiercest and most intense D-Beat Scandicore mangel you can dream about!

So to support their reborn Hardcore attack and give this killer album the proper availability, here’s the 2nd pressing of “Död åt kapitalismen“, limited to 400 copies.

Posted in Asocial, Releases, Vulgarity Kids on September 22nd, 2017 by foadmaster

3 new FOAD releases are ready to disintegrate your turntable!! A deadly match of Japan vs Sweden consisting of fast thrashing HC vs pioneering Scandicore brutality. We’re proud to announce that VULGARITY KIDSs/t” LP, ASOCIALHouse of gore+” gatefold LP and ASOCIALDöd åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP are all out now on FOAD Records. The die-hard editions on colored/splatter vinyl are all gone on preorder and the black ones are running fast too, so you know what to do! Japanese customers, you can still find some last copies of each diehard version at Disk Union, Record Boy, Base and Answer… also, don’t miss the upcoming VULGARITY KIDS comeback show on October 1st at El Puente in Yokohama in memory of their former guitarist that passed away 30 years ago, it’s going to be a great party and one of us will be there too! Facebook event (click HERE)

And there’s an additional surprise about this insane Japanese HC trio: the LP that we just released includes their 8″EP and compilation track.. at the time that we put it together it seemed that their latter studio session was completely lost. But.. after announcing this 12″ and the band spreading the word about it and about their lost tape, a friend from their hometown Utsunomiya got in touch and provided this impossible to find session called “Bloody splatter”!! And trust us, it’s a total ripper, fast + rapid + thrashing as hell Japanese Hardcore at its best! So expect another VULGARITY KIDS record to be released on FOAD in the future, with all unreleased stuff. If you’re not familiar with these killer bands, check these videos introducing them.. VULGARITY KIDS (click here) ASOCIAL (click here)

We’re starting ship your preorders now, there are many so please be patient.

More in detail about each release:

VULGARITY KIDS “s/t  LP (F.O.A.D. 135)

Another gem of obscure ’80s Japanese Hardcore on F.O.A.D. Records.  Hailing from the area of Utsunomiya, Tochigi, this shortly lived outfit delivered the traditional sound of fast, no frills Japanese Hardcore of the late 80s that at times recalls the early Systematic Death EPs and 12″. This LP (silk screened on side B) collects their hard to find flexi 8″ on Asia Record recorded in 1987 and a song from “Enjoy your youth by this Hardcore sampler” mastered from the original reels and gets released in time for their comeback show in memory of their former guitarist Moochin that passed away 30 years ago in fall 1987.

Comes with special OBI strip, a fanzine styled booklet with liner notes, photos and flyers.

VULGARITY KIDS are yet another proof that when it comes to Japanese Hardcore you don’t have to strictly focus only on the classic names because there is an endless panorama of demos, rare records and obscurities that hides some very high quality bands. It’s an interesting challenge for us to unearth them and bring them back to light on releases like this!

Black vinyl limited to 200

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

ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 132)

Black vinyl limited to 400

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

ASOCIAL “House of gore +” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 131)

The third and final installment that completes the ASOCIAL vinyl reissues to make their entire 1982-1994 easily available for all you Scandicore psychos. This LP collects the following: “How could Hardcore be any worse” (split tape with The Bedrövlers, 1984… THEIR FASTEST RECORDINGS EVER!) plus some extra unreleased stuff, songs from “Hardcore for the masses” and “Attack is now suicide” v.a. LPs (both from 1988), the “House of gore” 7″ (1992) and their songs from “Distortion to hell” v.a. CD (1994). All this stuff has been mastered from the original reels and mastertapes.

This collection shows the band’s progression from the early, out of control ultra Hardcore annihilation to a more d-beat paced (as a matter of fact, a Discharge cover is included) and even metallic HC approach, still keeping the aggression and power that has always been a trademark in their sound. 25 tracks. Housed in a glossy gatefold sleeve with silver hot-foil stamping.

Back from a frantic summer with many festivals and the madness of 8 FOAD releases in 3 months, here we are again with a triple bloodbath of pure mindblowing Hardcore from Japan and Sweden!! Our legacy with the Scandicore masters ASOCIAL keeps strong as we are releasing their 3rd and final chapter that completes the reissues of their 80s/90s discography, and then a big surprise… their brand new album freshly recorded in spring 2017 right after some killer comeback shows that totally destroyed! And moving to the Far East, as you’ve seen in the past few years, we always keep an eye open on Japanese Hardcore and the immense underground of obscure treasures still hidden there… This time we chose to unearth the VULGARITY KIDS, a thrashing HC unit that delivered just one 8″ flexi back in 1987 that according to us is a little classic in its style. So FOAD‘s aggression for September consists of: VULGARITY KIDS “s/t” LP and ASOCIAL “Död åt kapitalismen” gatefold LP and “House of gore +” gatefold LP. Pre-orders start now, we’ll start to ship from September 21st 2017. As we always remind, act fast if you want to catch the die-hard versions, as they never last too long!

Now more in detail about each release:

Asocial “Det Bittra Slutet +” double LP (F.O.A.D. 108)

Total Swedish Hardcore mangel at its best! Credited by heavy metal expert Daniel Ekeroth as the true inventors of the ‘blast-beat’ and the originators of grindcore (he defines ASOCIAL as ‘key to any survey of estreme music‘ in his book ‘Swedish Death Metal‘), ASOCIAL are a total cult among old European Hardcore Punk collectors. This monster anthology (55 SONGS) on double LP has been entirely compiled by the band using the original 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes, it has been edited and mastered by the band and even the whole layout has been put together by them using rare photos, flyers, cassette covers, liner notes and more!

It includes the legendary “Det bittra slutet” EP (1984) with its previous demo and unreleased tracks from the same session, the complete “Asocial Attack” cassette (the one that it’s assumed to feature some of the first blast beats ever landed on this planet!), an extra rehearsal from the same period, extra demo tracks 1983-1984 (among which the songs included on the “No war no more Vol. II” Comp. Tape) and 15 live tracks (the complete Split cassette with Distrust + 2 more songs recorded in Hedemora).  What to add?  If you like the fastest Scandinavian Hardcore/Punk and your daily drug is the insanely raw devastation of bands like Mob 47, Anti Cimex, The Shitlickers, Crude SS, Discard and the many “really fast” treasures that came out of the Swedish scene in the early ’80s, then this double LP is an absolute must for your collection!  Housed in a glossy UV laminated gatefold cover including a 8 page booklet!

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

Sore Throat “Disgrace to the corpse of Sid”  gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 107)

One of the scariest, most terrific records in the history of music finally comes back to light in a deluxe FOAD-treatment reissue!  This 103 monstrosity (yes, it was 103 not 101 as written on the 1st pressing’s sticker) originally released in 1989 and surrounded by many controversies between the band and Earache Records, still stands as an unmatched assault of catastrophic Noisecore savagery. Call it Grind, Noise, Britcore or whatever… but if we talk of the most extreme shit ever released on a full length 12″, “Disgrace To The Corpse Of Sid” certainly stands among the top 5 of all times. As Rich mentions: “Lion Studios was hit with a barrage of Noise even more extreme than before, as we decided to up the ante, and go for over 100 tracks on the record.” Side A consists of 90 machine-gun bursts of apocalyptic dementia, while Side B slows down for 13 anguished Sludge/Punk anthems at times recalling the industrial mood of Saw Throat’s “Indestroy” LP.

This new edition has been entirely remastered for vinyl from the best sounding sources and re-packaged in a thick gatefold sleeve including lyrics and extensive liner notes by Rich “Militia“. And it adds a special outrageous surprise that won’t be revealed here, you have to see it!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition in half black half yellow (with green splattering) vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on solid back vinyl, limited to 400 copies

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

The Gerogerigegege “Moenai Hai” LP (F.O.A.D. 109)

Welcome the return of one of Japan’s highest expressions of deranged Noise ever conceived!! Over 30 years of extraordinary nonsense anti-musical craziness of the sickest kind, this is the first record released after a mysterious hiatus of 15 years and also the first full length LP in almost 2 decades. And as always, the genius of Juntaro Yamanouchi leaves us pleasantly thrilled…  “燃えない灰” (Moenai Hai) is an eclectic journey in obscurity that alternates Dark Ambient and Noise Rock to bursts of pure mindblowing sonic violence.  The second track “ゲロゲリゲゲゲ / “The Gerogerigegege” above all is the remake of an old song (written in 1985) and this newer version has Dr. Euro of the legendary Execute on drums, giving it a solid Punk feel.

It’s a crescendo with an ultra-noisy guitar turning increasingly saturated and deflagrating, recalling the weird sonic approach of previous works of cult like “Senzuri Power Up“. If you’re a follower of this unstoppable master of noise and you enjoy his previous aural crimes, this new effort will definitely make you wish for more!

Limited edition on ultra dark blue vinyl (250 copies)
