Posted in Bulldozer on December 5th, 2017 by foadmaster

..we promised to end the year with a bloody apocalypse, so here’s the first deadly shelling! After the highly successful vinyl editions of all their 80’s full lengths, we are glad to keep the legacy with our friends BULLDOZER stronger than ever, so here’s some highly collectable deluxe digibook CD editions of their first two albums, EP and demo! No preorders this time, they’re both instantly available and ready to ship: BULLDOZERThe day of wrath & The exorcism” 2xCD digibook and BULLDOZERThe final separation” CD digibook out NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!! Both releases are housed in ultra elegant hard cover DIGIBOOKS each one including rare photos and lyrics. These are hands down the best CD versions ever made for these masterpieces, making justice to what we repute the real roots of Italian Metal and some of the most important worldwide Black/Thrash Metal releases of all times!

More in detail about the contents of each release:

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath + The exorcism” 2xCD digibook (F.O.A.D. 105/cd)

CD1 – THE DAY OF WRATH: The ground-breaking debut full length of Italy’s most respected Metal band of all times finally coming back to light in a fantastic new version specially remastered from 1st generation sources provided by the band and re-packaged with unseen photos and lyrics! BULLDOZER‘s first album is a total classic of blackened evil Metal taking the rawest school of VENOM and MOTÖRHEAD to an unebelievably powerful and wicked sonic impact, bearing the malevolent flame of “Black Metal” and “Welcome to Hell” and injecting it with a renewed intensity. For anyone into old school Black Metal to not own this is a crime. This is for anyone that worships the early releases from Venom, Bathory and Sodom.. WELCOME DEATH!

CD 2 – THE EXORCISM + FALLEN ANGEL: The ultra-fucking-rare BULLDOZER Demotape 1984 with kult “Fallen angel” 7″ added as bonus. One of the most incredible findings in FOAD‘s hunting career: only 3 copies of this demo exist, one was sent to Roadrunner, one to King Diamond and one was recently exhumed in AC Wild’s basement and delivered to us for a top quality treatment. This is the recording that got Bulldozer signed to Roadrunner in 1984 and it sounds killer… different and rawer versions of classics ended on their debut slasher “The day of wrath“. Dark, demonical Black/Speed Metal from the most savage guts of Italy’s early 80s Metal inferno, for anyone that worships the early releases from Venom, Bathory and Possessed, plus the “Fallen angel” session adds that Motörhead touch that makes this an instant masterpiece of rawness. Check out how AC Wild introduced the unreleased Demo recordings: “This tape was sent to Roadrunner and Roadrunner signed us in 1984. It was also submitted to King Diamond to ask if he was interested in being the producer of our album but he refused saying that this stuff sounded “too Punk”!!

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

BULLDOZER “The final separation” CD digibook (F.O.A.D. 106/cd)

The 2nd full length by Italy’s Metal masters BULLDOZER! Originally released in 1986, here it finally comes in a new edition remastered directly from the studio reels provided by the band and re-packaged with unreleased photos and lyrics. “The final separation” is a devastating follow-up to their cult debut “The day of wrath” and adds a strong Speed/Thrash Metal vibe to their well-tested Black Metal meets dirty R’n’R tinged aggression!

All in all, this is another good confirm of the goodness of the Bulldozer’s sound back in the 80s and it’s good to recommend it to the old school fans of this lethal black/speed combination. For all its length, the nastiness of the speed metal and the brutal influences of bands like Venom and Motörhead collide to create another high impact effort, in pure 80s style!! RIDE HARD… DIE FAST!!

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs out NOW on FOAD Records! Die-hard limited Japanese editions delayed (approx 1 week)!!

BULLDOZER “The day of wrath” and “The final separation” gatefold LPs… preorders are open NOW!

Posted in Bulldozer, Pre Orders, Releases on June 13th, 2016 by foadmaster

What’s brewing in FOAD‘s unstoppable cauldron of death for this month? Once again two ageless classics of the rawest and most uncompromised Italian Metal ever conceived… They have been in the pipeline for years and now they are finally ready to be unleashed: we are talking about the ultimate vinyl reissues of the first two BULLDOZER albums, “The day of wrath” (1985) and “The final separation” (1986)!! PRE-ORDERS FOR BOTH START NOW, the official release date is scheduled for June 27th 2016 even if we’ll already have a first ltd batch of copies at this week’s Hellfest Open Air in Clisson, France (that we’ll be attending as usual with our massive record stand in the Extreme Market area). We are glad to keep our legacy with our friends Bulldozer stronger than ever, and after releasing several CDs and LPs by them (“The exorcism“, “IX“, “Neurodeliri“) and managing the online sales of their official merch via scareystore.com it’s time for us to complete their 80s vinyl discography on FOAD adding these two supreme masterpieces of infernal morbidity! And as we also did with “IX” and “Neurodeliri” we prepared some limited highly collectable Japanese editions to celebrate the solid fan-base that the Bulls always had in the land of the rising sun. They will be soon available at the main underground record stores in Tokyo like our friends Record Boy and Record Shop Base and in very limited quantity also through our mailorder, but they are expected to sell out at the speed of light so as someone would suggest: RIDE HARD… ORDER FAST!!

BULLDOZER “IX” gatefold LP + CD and “Neurodeliri” gatefold LP out now on FOAD Records!!

Posted in Bulldozer, Releases on June 6th, 2014 by foadmaster

Two more classics fresh out of the oven are finally available on F.O.A.D. Records! BULLDOZER “IX” gatefold LP + CD and “Neurodeliri” have just reached our headquarters and are ready to thrash the world. All pre-orders have been shipped already and as expected, the ultra-limited die-hard edition on splatter vinyl with OBI strip in Japanese has been sold out in few days. The colored vinyl versions (blue and orange) are going fast too, so don’t miss the chance. If you are looking for the definitive, best sounding editions of these Italian Thrash Metal masterpieces look no further. Both transfered from the original reels and specially mastered for vinyl to reach the most faithful audiophile quality, reproducing with analog warmness and passion the True original sound of when they were conceived back in 1987 and 1988. Now more in detail about each release:

BULLDOZER “IX” – Gatefold LP + “director’s cut” bonus CD (F.O.A.D. 067)

Without a doubt the fastest and most destructive Bulldozer release to date, showing a band at the top of its compositional maturity. Phenomenal riffage combining their Blackened Thrash trademark with a Speed Metal vibe, rentless aggressive drums and the incredible vocal delivery of the evil lord AC Wild!!  Songs like “Desert!“, “Ilona the very best“, “Heaven’s jail” are absolute Thrash commandments! This is 100% guaranteed the best sounding version ever realized, assisted and approved by original band members. Served for the first time in a deluxe gatefold sleeve including a selection of rare, never-seen-before photos. And there’s more, a very special bonus: we have unearthed a completely forgotten reel featuring the band’s alternate mix discarded by Discomagic, the label that released the 1st edition back in the ’80s. As it sounded killer and highly dynamic we have added it as an extra slimcase CD included in the gatefold, this is a sort of “director’s cut” proposed by the band and totally unreleased until now!

– LIMITED EDITION ON ORANGE VINYL, 150 COPIES 

– REGULAR BLACK VINYL

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

BULLDOZER “Neurodeliri” gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 068)

An incredible testament on the band’s merciless career through the ’80s. Carrying on the ominous assault of the previous ripper “IX“, “Neurodeliri” offers plenty of sharp riffs, fantastic lead-guitar work, bulldozing heavy drums and vocals that can best be compared to a hoarse and angry Lemmy. Plus some evil keyboards on some tracks adding a somewhat epic and mournful feeling to the music. Songs like “Minkions“, “We are Italians“, “You’ll be recalled” are unbeatable Thrash anthems! This is 100% guaranteed the best sounding version ever made, assisted and approved by original band members. Served for the first time in a deluxe gatefold sleeve including a selection of rare, never-seen-before photos!

– LIMITED EDITION ON BLUE VINYL, 150 COPIES 

– REGULAR BLACK VINYL

BULLDOZER “The exorcism: demo ’84” & NAUSEA “World struggle: demos ’88/’92” digipack CD editions OUT NOW !!

Posted in Bulldozer, Nausea, Releases on May 14th, 2014 by foadmaster

After the great success of the first pressings on vinyl, F.O.A.D. Records is proud to satisfy the huge request and deliver these highly awaited deluxe digipack editions of two of its most acclaimed releases : BULLDOZERThe exorcism: demo ’84” and NAUSEAWorld struggle: demos ’88/’92”. The usual F.O.A.D. treatment is strong as ever, so expect booklets filled with photos and liner notes and an over the top audio mastering for the best sounding experience!

BULLDOZER – The Exorcism: demo 1984 + Fallen Angel 7″

The ultra-fucking-rare BULLDOZER Demotape 1984 with kult “Fallen angel” 7″ added as bonus. One of the most incredible findings in FOAD‘s hunting career: only 3 copies of this demo exist, one was sent to Roadrunner, one to King Diamond and one was recently exhumed in AC Wild’s basement and delivered to us for a top quality treatment. This is the recording that got Bulldozer signed to Roadrunner in 1984 and it sounds killer… different and rawer versions of classics ended on their debut slasher “The day of wrath”.

Check out how AC Wild introduced the unreleased Demo recordings: “This tape was sent to Roadrunner and Roadrunner signed us in 1984.

Comes in a stunning deluxe digipack CD with 11 page booklet filled with rare/unreleased photos, alternate artworks and liner-notes.

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

NAUSEA – World struggle: demos 1988 / 1992 + bonus tracks

This is pure old school Grindcore and you can’t get closer to TERRORIZER‘s legendary album “World downfall“, in fact a third of the songs of Terrorizer’s “World downfall” were actually NAUSEA material, the previous band of vocalist Oscar Garcia. Born from the ashes of MAJESTY, they were not a side project of Terrorizer (as many think incorrectly), but a definite band, even surviving the latter’s break up in 1988. Oscar Garcia even used some Nausea songs to complete the posthumous Terrorizer record (‘Corporation Pull-in’, ‘Need to Live’, ‘Condemned System’ and the title track ‘World Downfall’ that was in origin a Majesty song)! On this new CD edition you will find the songs featured on the LP one,  so the band’s classic “Psychological conflict” EP (1990), the obscure and under-rated “Tumor” Demo (1992) and the entire split Demo with TERRORIZER (1988) bootlegged on vinyl by Headache Rec in the early 90s, plus six raw yet powerful sounding tunes from three different rehearsal recordings straight from 1987. These bonus tracks are exclusive for this digipack CD repress and will square the circle of the story of a band the helped to define a full genre! This is raw, doomy and corrosive death metal tinged GRIND with whirlwind blast beats and those incredible moshing riffs that became so influential when World Downfall gained its deserved success!
