CRIPPLE BASTARDS “misantropo a senso unico” mini-tour

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Events, On Tour, Releases on October 21st, 2013 by foadmaster

Supporting the long-awaited release of the REDUX Edition of their classic “Misantropo A Senso Unico” album, Cripple Bastards have started an Italian mini tour with a set list focused on a lot of songs from that legendary album.

First gig is gone and there are only five more to go. These shows will be the last chance to listen to some classic songs from Misantropo in a live context, so be sure to catch Cripple Bastards live!

Misantropo A Senso Unico – REDUX Edition” can still be ordered through ScareyStore at this link:


CRIPPLE BASTARDS “Misantropo a senso unico” redux edition CD and NAUSEA “World struggle” gatefold LP out NOW!

Posted in Cripple Bastards, Events, Nausea on September 24th, 2013 by foadmaster

Two cornerstones of mind blowing Grindcore finally out on FOAD Records! The long awaited redux edition of CRIPPLE BASTARDS‘ classic album “Misantropo A Senso Unico” and NAUSEA L.A. early recordings collection “World Struggle : Demos 1988-1992″ LP and  are now up for orders!


First off we want to thank everyone who showed up at Rock Hard Festival in Milan. The gig was fantastic and legendary bands like Sodom, Tankard, Asphyx and Cripple Bastards lived up to their glory. Talking about Cripple Bastards, the show was the selected event to premiere the REDUX edition of their second album and one of  the fans’ faves : “Misantropo a Senso Unico” (2000).

This re-mastered version has been in the works for about three years and the first batch of copies was blown away in one evening! So, one week after the expected release date we have finally received the remaining part of this new pressing and it’s now available and up for sale! “Misantropo A Senso Unico” REDUX features the amazing remastaring by Toxic Basement Studio and a never released track composed by Alberto The Crippler and Walter Dr Tomas during the original recording sessions of the album. That song, called “Separati Dal Contagio” has been dug out from the archives and enriched by the contribution of the cult Italian inspired Prog/Horror rock maniacs ANIMA MORTE from Sweden. The result is almost a new album and a must listen for old and new enthusiasts of one of the most extreme (if not THE most extreme) album ever recorded in Italy.

UK’s Terrorizer Mag quoted it as nr. 6th 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”. Housed in an elegant digipack with 20 page booklet including all lyrics, liner notes and English translations, wrapped in an external slipcase. The definitive unbeatable re-edition of this album, it can’t sound and look better than this!


Sit down and get ready to hear a powerful lesson in L.A. Grindcore…

NAUSEA ‘s  “World struggle: demos 1988-1992″ gatefold LP is out now via FOAD Records / Scareystore, smoothing the way for the band’s upcoming European tour in October 2013 that will leave your eardrums completely pulverized. FOAD Records  put up NAUSEA‘s only Italian show on October 10th in Piacenza and will follow the band at Bloodshed Fest in Holland a few days later with all our trademark enormous records stand! 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)! This LP collects 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 90′s. Raw, old school, powerful and polverizing Grindcore from one of the pioneers of the genre!

NOTE: the limited splatter vinyl edition has been completely sold out by preorders !! !! !!
