CRIPPLE BASTARDS “The outside world” BOXSET (5 x LP, 2 x CD, 2 x books!) out now on F.O.A.D. Records!

Posted in Cripple Bastards on January 4th, 2018 by foadmaster

Here we are with another FOAD year in the books leaving behind the madness of 30 releases in 12 months (!!) and armed to teeth to enter 2018 with an avalanche of mindblowing Thrash and vicious Metal / Punk / Grind rawness. There’s a lot of interesting news scheduled for the next months, anyway we decided to leave this month free with no releases because the Cripple Bastards’ boxset (that was scheduled for the end of December) just came out with a 2 weeks delay, so it’s more like a January feature, and also because we want to focus on a massive inventory and get all things set to re-start with renewed energy in February. So the wait is over and F.O.A.D. 100 aka CRIPPLE BASTARDSThe Outside World” 5 x LP, 2 x CD, 2 x books is out now and most of your preorders have been sent this week, the next will be all shipped within the next 4-5 days. Thanks to all you maniacs for the insane support, the diehard edition was sold out at grinding speeds and the regular one on black vinyl is hitting fast too! This is hands down the most complex, elegant and massive release that we have done so far, over 5 hours of the most terrific and ominous hate-filled Grind / Punk / Noisecore violence you can think of. CB are entering their 30th year anniversary with this monster… there was no better way to celebrate it!

More details about it:

Italy’s undisputed Grind warheads enter their 30th year anniversary with the most massive BOXSET ever released in the history of Grindcore. 5 x LPs, 2 x CDs, 2 x books! All their countless 7″s, splits, compilation tracks and a lot of never heard before recordings… 362 SONGS IN TOTAL! This is the ultimate CRIPPLE BASTARDS collection as it includes every single non album track the band has recorded since their post-demos era, plus almost 2 hours of unreleased brutality including a recently unearthed studio session 2003, rare demos, live tracks and a lot more. Be prepared for over 5 hours of ear-damaging terror ranging from the early short-song Noisecore annihilation to the insanely distorted Punk rooted Grind / Fastcore of their 90s EPs to the bulldozing Hate / Grind blast-feast of the most recent works. All this madness scrupulously transferred from the original reels / master-tapes and mastered with extreme care and passion at Toxic Basement Studios with constant supervision of Giulio The Bastard.

Each LP comes with a foldout insert collecting the original artworks, inserts and flyers of each EP included. Book #1 features tons of rare pictures documenting the history of the band from the early days up to recent times, while Book #2 has the complete lyrics of the songs included in the tracklists + extra photos. All this housed in a deluxe matt laminated casewrapped box… a head smashing brick weighing around 2,5 Kgs!!

BLACK VINYL EDITION LIMITED TO 350 COPIES

CRIPPLE BASTARDS “The outside world – Singles collection, comp. tracks and unreleased” BOXSET: preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Pre Orders, Releases on December 12th, 2017 by foadmaster

Here we are, at last: time for the end-year FOAD release… nothing else than the longly awaited F.O.A.D. 100!! Even if we are already at nr. 137 (Battle Attacker) we kept our 100th release in standby for something special and somehow very close to us. This gigantic effort has been in the making for years and it’s backed by a maniacal work both as far as it concerns the sound mastering and the colossal layout/graphics. It also marks the beginning of the thirtieth anniversary of a band that has kept the Grindcore flag alive and strong since 1988 never breaking up, never going down to any compromise, remaining violent, hostile and extreme from its inception up to now. You know what we’re talking about… Italy’s “purest personification of hate“, the CRIPPLE BASTARDS! Here’s their longly awaited singles collection boxset, a monsterwork including 5 x LPs, 2 x CDs and 2 x books! So… preorders for CRIPPLE BASTARDSThe Outside World” BOXSET are up now!

Some important notes: the release date for this is set for December 23rd 2017. Please be aware that the Italian postal service through the Xmas/New Year rush can be very slow, so don’t be surprised if delivery times will be a bit longer or if we’ll eventually decide to ship your order after the Xmas/New Year chaos.

Just be patient and we’ll give you full assistance as always.

The die-hard edition limited to 150 copies includes as bonus: CB / Yacopsae split 5″ with unreleased trax from both bands, the “Almost human” A2 poster and a CB tote bag. This is expected to sell really quickly so don’t wait too long!

Cripple Bastards “Misantropo a senso unico – redux edition” LP+7″ out now!!

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Releases on December 22nd, 2014 by foadmaster

Ok, we have premiered this monster at the incredibly insane “Night Of The Speed Demons fest. 7” that saw RATOS DE PORAO, CRIPPLE BASTARDS, YACOPSAE and EU’S ARSE destroy a completely packed “Honky Tonky” Club in Milano, now it’s time to send the many preorders and announce that CRIPPLE BASTARDSMisantropo a senso unico” (redux) gatefold LP+7″ is out now and ready to ship. Needless to say that the ultra-diehard limited edition with OBI, extra cover and extra booklet is totally gone, we still have a few of the splatter one limited to 80, so act fast! And are you thinking that this is the last FOAD release for 2014 and it’s time to take a breathe?? mmmh, maybe… maybe not!

Anyway, back to “Misantropo a senso unico” : after releasing the highly acclaimed digipack CD version that got a really positive response both by the fans and the press, it was about time to give to Italy’s most violent and controversial Grind/HC album of all times a proper vinyl treatment. If you thought that the recently unleashed TERRORIZERBefore the downfall” double gatefold LP was FOAD’s most stylish production of 2014, you still haven’t coped with this ingot-weighing madness…

Maybe this brief description will help:

* Ultra-thick gatefold sleeve with 70s giallo/horror style lyrics-book glued on the inner panel
* A2 poster with “Milano odia.. (The executioner)” alternative art
* Bonus “Separati dal contagio” 7″EP with unreleased art and side-B etched
* Promo sticker

If the original first pressing had that sick and dark visual feeling due to the maniacal use of 70s Italian artworks from crime/giallo movies of cult underground directors, this new edition emphasizes it even more thanks to the astonishing job of View From The Coffin: starting from the idea of old hectographed posters and mags with a color scale fading into another, the inner gatefold and booklet will sink you into an insane dimension of words, colors and graphics all strictly related to that 70s style that influenced C.B. so much back when this album was conceived. And now to the music: deluxe redux re-issue of Italy’s most classic Grindcore album ever. This has been in the works for years due to enormous difficulties in transfering the original reels that were on a very rare (and unplayable) format. Restored, remixed and remastered with feverish care at Toxic Basement Studio under constant supervision of the band, to keep the original rawness and rage completely intact and utterly reinforced. And there’s even more.. on those reels we found a 4 minute unreleased song, “Separati dal contagio“, which has been entrusted to Sweden’s prog/horror Rock masters ANIMA MORTE for a majestic Goblin meets Frizzi ending result, added on this LP as exclusive bonus 7″

Originally released in 2000, “Misantropo a senso unico” is an incredible outburst of hyperfast hate-fueled Grindcore rooted in the most furious and violent 80s Italian Hardcore. 16 songs of manic speed scream-out-lungs hatred at its most nihilistic form, the band’s absolute manifesto. UK’s Terrorizer Mag quoted it as nr. 6 of the most essential Grindcore albums of all times. S.O.D. / Brutal Truth / Hemlock / Anthrax / Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker about this album: “Exquisitely insane hardcore grind that reminds me of why I got into all this shit back in the late Eighties“. The definitive untoppable re-edition of this album, it can’t sound and look better than this!

Available in 2 different versions:

– DIE-HARD splatter edition ltd to 80 copies including:

. Splatter LP on clear water green vinyl with blood red stains
. New ultra-thick gatefold sleeve with 70s giallo/horror style lyrics-book glued on the inner panel

– BLACK VINYL edition ltd to 340 copies:

. LP on solid black vinyl
. New ultra-thick gatefold sleeve with 70s giallo/horror style lyrics-book glued on the inner panel
