Posted in Attomica, Cryptic Slaughter, Releases on March 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

The moment has finally arrived! The two latest nuclear devices by F.O.A.D. Records are finally out and ready to drop on your stereo! “The lowlife chronicles 1984-1988” CD/DVD, also known as the definitive document about the life of Cryptic Slaughter, and the first legendary self titled album by Brazilian thrash legends Attomica are in the F.O.A.D. headquarters and almost all the preorders have been packed and shipped! You can also have a sneak peek at the contents of the amazing Cryptic Slaughter documentary in this trailer video, as an appetizer for the full feature!

More in detail about each release:

 

– CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “The Lowlife Chronicles 1984-1988” Digipack CD/DVD (F.O.A.D. 118)

The definitive Cryptic Slaughter release on FOAD Records! This project has been years in the making to reach the best possible result. A nearly 2 hours DVD tracing the band’s history from 1984 till the “Stream Of Consciousness” era in 1988. Includes tons of live footage and exclusive interviews with band members and other musicians (MUNICIPAL WASTE, REPULSION, HATEBREED, FEAR FACTORY, HIRAX etc..etc…). And there’s more… a CD full of rarities (rehearsals, outtakes etc) and soundboard live material selected from 9 different shows 1985-1988, ranging from the early “Life in grave” times to the “Convicted” and “Money Talks” sets.

31 SONGS of the fastest and most influential US Hardcore / Thrash ever conceived! Housed in a 8-panel digipack including 2 booklets packed with rare photos, flyers and original artworks. As we always say: if you’re into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are M.A.D. if you miss any Cryptic Slaughter release!

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

 

– ATTOMICA “s/t” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 119)

Another South American Thrash milestone on FOAD Records! 1987… among the hordes of death-thrashing maniacs raising from the blood soaked Brazilian underground, ATTOMICA from the São Paulo area sinks its teeth and claws in first with their “Children’s Assassin” Demo (1986) and then with the ultra-crude self titled debut that still now is considered by many their most classic release. This is some of rawest and most aggressive death tinged Thrash Metal you can think of. A solid collision of caustic neck-breaking riffs, fast ‘n’ tight drumming at occasion speeding up to blast beat levels and some merciless screaming vocals reminescent of early Kreator, giving to the whole thing an utter feeling of cruelty and malignancy.

Despite the many CD reissues, this classic full length hasn’t been reissued on vinyl since the original first press on Equinox (1988), so nearly 30 years! And most important, this new edition on special 160 grams vinyl is with no doubt the best sounding one you can find around, as it has been specially mastered from an uncompressed 1st generation source that unlike the ultra-“squashed” remastered CD versions gives a lot of range and dynamics to the warmness of the original production. Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve enriched with rare and unreleased photos from the band’s early times. If you’re like us an insane fanatic of Brazil’s Death/Thrash golden era (Mutilator, Holocausto, Chakal, Vulcano, Dorsal Atlantica, early Sepultura and tons more) this LP should be a mandatory addition to your collection!

Die-hard orange vinyl limited to 100 copies

Regular black vinyl

RATOS DE PORÃO “Feijoada acidente – International” LP and ATTOMICA “Disturbing the noise” Gatefold LP are out now!!

Posted in Attomica, Ratos De Porao, Releases on December 30th, 2015 by foadmaster

Here we are at the end of 2015, this year has been really insane for F.O.A.D. as we have brought to light more than 20 releases keeping a production standard of two releases monthly, that is really crazy for a DIY label run by just a handful of maniacs… And you’ll be happy to know that our schedule for 2016 is already fully booked and it’s even scarier than what you’ve seen so far! So to give the right coup the grace to 2015, we’re happy to say that our announced Brazilian thrashing combo for December is out now!

RATOS DE PORÃOFeijoada acidente – International” LP and ATTOMICADisturbing the noise” Gatefold LP are both released, we’re packing and shipping all pre-orders now. There’s still a few (less than 30) copies left of the die-hard version of RxDxPx on “feijoada suco gàstrico” splatter vinyl, so don’t miss the chance! More in detail about each release:

RATOS DE PORÃO “Feijoada acidente – International” LP

F.O.A.D. Records‘ legacy with RATOS DE PORÃO comes to a 5th head-kicking chapter… “Feijoada acidente? – International” for the first time on vinyl in a special audiophile version sounding better than ever!! RxDxPx are hands down the undisputed kings of South American Thrashcore/Punk delivering their fast and aggressive brand of Hardcore since 1981. On this album recorded in 1995 and originally released on CD by Roadrunner Records, they pay homage to those bands from all over the world that influenced their sound through their over 3 decade career, both in terms of raging speed and mind-blowing intensity. So the choice of bands covered on this monsterpiece ranges from the corrosive D-beat explosions of RawPunk maniacs like The SHITLICKERS, EU’S ARSE, ANTI CIMEX, KAAOS, CHAOTIC DISCHORD to some angry HC inferno when they revisit classics by BLACK FLAG, CIRCLE JERKS, POISON IDEA, MINOR THREAT, INFERNO to the 3-chord PunkRock energy of VIBRATORS, DEAD BOYS, THE SAINTS, REZILLOS and so on!

All this madness backed by an ultra solid powerful production that simply destroys! Housed in a solid, matte laminated jacket with 250 gr carton insert featuring photos and liner notes.

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition on “feijoada suco gástrico” special splatter vinyl strictly limited to 100 copies only

Solid black vinyl (400 copies)

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

ATTOMICA “Disturbing the noise” gatefold LP

Brazilian Thrash artillery at its finest!! Originally released in 1991, “Disturbing the noise” was the band’s 3rd full length and probably the peak of aggression and tightness in their discography. This is hands down their best (and fastest) release according to FOAD team’s taste, that’s why we offered them to bring it back to light, as the original pressing on Discogs and Ebay is sold at ridiculously horrendous prices… $ 200 and surroundings! ATTOMICA‘s sonic offering on this album is a solid overdose of brutal no frills Thrash. Take the riffing and ballistic execution of SEPULTURA in their “Beneath the remains” era and mix it with the speed and ferocity of American masters like DEMOLITION HAMMER and you get a remote idea of the punching tornado these maniacs were able to deliver. No, it doesn’t have absurd technical showmenship or acrobatic soloing, but the truth is that there’s no need of these things, at least when you are playing only in order to crush the listeners’ skulls and necks.

These seven bullets will hit you quickly and mercilessly: if you are looking for some straightforward plain THRASH, you should surely check this out and have some simple headbanging fun. Housed in a tick high glossy gatefold cover with rare and unreleased photos!

Available in 2 different versions:

Die-hard edition on “radioactive sign” red/black vinyl strictly limited to 100 copies only

Solid black vinyl (400 copies)
