ATROCITY “Infected + early demos” Gatefold 2xLP + insert (F.O.A.D. 205)

Smashing in your fucking skull, like a ripe fruit – Brain begins to haemorrage, it’s breaking at the root“!! The grinding masterpiece “Infected” by Connecticut’s sonic butchers ATROCITY turns 30 and gets a special quality centered re-release on F.O.A.D. Records, enriched by an extra LP featuring two early Demotapes (1986-1987)! These blood-thirsty maniacs were responsible for some of nastiest Death/Grind, perfectly combining the unmatched intensity of the ’80s US Death Metal tradition with terrifying old school Grindcore fury. The first comparison that comes to mind when “Infected” starts to rip your turntable to shreds is obviously REPULSION! This double LP includes an extended version of “Infected” adding a bonus alternate version of the song “Infected” that was only included on their “Hatred birth” EP and their two demos “Toxic death” (1987) and “Ravaged by disease” (1987). 32 SONGS of gut-mangling Death/Grind brutality! Housed in a gatefold jacket displaying rare photos and original artworks, also including an insert with zine excerpts and an interesting interview focused on the band’s early years. Watch the trailer HERE

Contents:
Infected” LP + extra alternate track from “Hatred birth” EP
Toxic death” Demo (1986)
Ravaged by disease” Demo 1987

Solid black vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 300 copies

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

TYFOON “Criminal death” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D. 211)

Violent Death/Thrashing onslaught from the darkest alleys of the ’80s Belgian Underground…  TYFOON‘s two and only Demotapes “The end” (1987) and “The edge of violence” (1992) for the first time on vinyl, remastered from the band’s sources.   Caustic and aggressive death-tinged Thrash Metal that recalls the mid ’80s Teutonic school of titans like Kreator and Sodom!! If we were to rank our favorite Belgian demos of that era, “The end” is undoubtedly in the top five with its nonstop fast, raw and desecrating delivery. And to complete the F.O.A.D. quality-treatment this LP comes with a massive full colored booklet filled with rare photos, flyers, memorabilia and biographical notes. Watch the trailer HERE

Solid black vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 200 copies


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

X-CRETA “We will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD+insert (F.O.A.D. 207)

A killing collection of rare X-CRETA recordings (demos, rehearsals and live) prior to their smashing debut full length “Patronizing the Heterodox“. Formed in 1983, these Belgian Thrashcore gunners were responsible for some of the fiercest, stripped down, and energetic type of Crossover/Thrash, not far removed from the early releases by Voivod, but faster. At the top of their riff driven assault, some of the sickest vitriolic vocals around at the time, think of the sickest clash between Kreator‘s Mille Petrozza and Sid Migx of CCM. This F.O.A.D. anthology traces the early steps of the band starting from the primordial, pure Hardcore approach on their demo 1984 “13 recepten voor en hersenbloeding” and song from “Alle 55 kort” – both sounding quite close to their legendary country fellows Zyklome-A – and moving to the solid Speed/Thrashcore assault that followed with their demo 1985, “We will thrash you!!“. All the stuff included has been sourced from extremely rare tapes provided by our inner circle of friends-collectors and scrupulously remastered to keep the original rawness and intensity.  Bonus CD with live rehearsals, insert with photos, flyers and original tapes’ art. Watch the trailer HERE

Contents:
“13 recepten voor en hersenbloeding” Demo 1984
Song from “Alle 55 kort” compilation Tape 1984
“We will Thrash you!!” Demo 1985
Live and rehearsals 1985-1986

Available in two different versions:

Diehard swirl magenta vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 100 copies

Solid black vinyl (180 GRAMS) limited to 200 copies

ATROCITY “Infected + early demos” 2xLP gatefold, TYFOON “Criminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP and X-CRETA “We will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD preorders start now!!

Posted in Atrocity, Pre Orders, Releases, Tyfoon, X-Creta on November 10th, 2020 by foadmaster

The F.O.A.D. thrash-tank is ready to claim new victims! We left you with our September blast of 5x releases, decided to leave an empty month to take a breathe and ship all preorders, now we’re back with a completely different beast… two lost and found European Speed/Thrash-core gems, both from a country that had not yet entered our archives… Belgium, and the 30th year anniversary reissue of a Death/Grind milestone, repackaged in a special extended version with a lot of extra stuff.

We’re talking of ATROCITYInfected + early demos” 2xLP gatefold, the ultimate edition of this US grinding Death masterpiece enriched by an additional LP with the band’s first two demos (“Toxic death” and “Ravaged by disease“) and.. on the above-mentioned Belgian front, an exhaustive anthology of early X-CRETA recordings called “We will thrash you! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD, showing the band’s evolution from their pure Hardcore roots to the vicious Speed/Thrash/Crossover that brought them to the classic full length “Patronizing the heterodox” and then TYFOON… if we were to rank our favorite Belgian demos of the ’80s, “The end” is undoubtedly in the top five with its nonstop fast, raw and desecrating assault. A friend helped us to get in touch with the band and the result is: “Criminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP collecting their two and only demotapes, merciless Death/Thrash delivered with mind-blowing intensity and aggression.  So, to sum things up:  ATROCITYInfected + early demos” gatefold 2xLP, TYFOONCriminal death – discography 1987-1992” LP and X-CRETAWe will thrash you!! Demos & Live 1984-1986” LP+CD are available on preorder. The official release date is November 23rd, 2020.  All these releases are pressed on 180 gram vinyl and as always there are some limited colored vinyl versions, the “rotting bowels” green/orange splatter for ATROCITY looks totally wicked! We strongly recommend you to act fast if you want to catch these colored diehard versions as they always get sold out quickly.

MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: Demo/Live/Reh 1986” gatefold LP+CD and ATROCITY “Mangled” LP: out now!!

Posted in Atrocity, Mutilator, Releases on May 26th, 2016 by foadmaster

2 new FOAD rippers are out today! As previously announced, this month’s recipe consists of two bloody raw Death/Thrashin’ classics from 1986-1988… Brazil’s MUTILATOR and Torrington, Connecticut’s ATROCITY. Both releases have just been delivered to our headquarters and as expected they look and sound like a kick in the face! A big part of preorders has been shipped already, the rest will be sent in the next few days. There are still a few boxes on ltd. splatter vinyl that we are exclusively selling through our mailorder scareystore.com so don’t miss the chance until they are still available. Ok, so MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: Demo/Live/Reh 1986” gatefold LP+CD and ATROCITY “Mangled” LP are both OUT NOW!

More in detail about each release:

MUTILATOR “Evil conspiracy: demos, live and rehearsals 1986” gatefold LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 103)

Straight from the hell of Belo Horizonte/Brazil and the merciless savagery of that city’s early Metal scene, MUTILATOR stands as one of the rawest and most uncompromised offerings of true Brazilian Death-Thrashing brutality.  This record collects all the existing recordings featuring Silvio SDN on vocals (except the “Warfare Noise 1” comp. trax that have been already reissued by other labels): so you get the “Blood Storm / Grave Desecration” demo 1986, an insanely fast and raw rehearsal 1986 that the band had recorded as bonus on the cassette that they exclusively sent to Jon Metalion for being reviewed on Slayer Mag and a bonus CD with 3 different live sets from that period (“Festival Da Morte” / “Carioca Club” / “Slaughter Fest”) for a total of 32 bloody tracks mastered from the best sounding sources in existence (forget the bootlegs that have circulated in the last years).

If you’re a maniac of the Cogumelo classic era of Death/Thrash bestiality (SARCOFAGO, HOLOCAUSTO, early SEPULTURA, VULCANO just to mention the most popular) you can’t go wrong with this: insanely fast drumming, fantastic riffing and that unique vocal delivery that makes this an instant classic of rawness at its purest form. Quoting the bass player Ricardo:”Those were the golden years of Brazilian Metal, and the recordings included on this LP show an epic period of our scene, my wish is that the headbangers from all over the world will enjoy it… After all everything becomes history, and this is a history of love for a kind of Metal that will never die.” Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a fanzine styled A4 booklet packed with rare photos, flyers and liner notes!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition on beer yellow vinyl sprayed with blue splattering, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on black vinyl limited to 400 copies

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

ATROCITY “Mangled” LP  (F.O.A.D. 104)

Another cult Demo finally back to light on vinyl with a deserved “FOAD treatment” of dedication and quality… US Atrocity‘s “Mangled” demotape (1988) is hands down one of the best recordings in the band’s entire discography. High speed, rotten-to-the-core grinding Death Metal delivered with inhuman fury and brutality! The 7 tracks forming this ominous session were a solid foretaste of what they later delivered with their “Hatred birth” EP and the bulldozing debut full length “Infected“.

Non-stop fast, angry Death Metal with a somehow Grindcore oriented feeling, REPULSION, IMPETIGO and early Wild Rags audio terrorists being the first comparisons that come to mind listening to this. The sound quality is outstanding as it’s been mastered directly from the original 1/4″ reels. It comes with exclusive liner notes, flyers and rare archive photos.

Die-hard edition on smokey green vinyl, limited to 100 copies

Regular edition on black vinyl limited to 400 copies
