Posted in Events on December 2nd, 2014 by foadmaster

So we are ending the year with a relentless assault based on new releases (TERRORIZER LABefore the downfall” coming in few days + more vinyl gems TBA soon) and two shows that will certainly leave their trail of blood! The first is FOAD‘s classic “Night Of The Speed Demons Festival” established in 2002 and now at its 7th chapter. This year’s edition will take place nearby Milano (Seregno) at “Honky Tonky” club on Friday 19th and will see Brazil’s thrash/punk legend RATOS DE PORAO headlining (exclusive italian show!) together with other blasting monsters such as CRIPPLE BASTARDS, YACOPSAE and EU’S ARSE… all bands that have recently unleashed some great music via FOAD Records. And to end the onslaught, LAFORCAH (feat. Carlame of The Skruigners) will deliver a bizarre avalanche of earsplitting Electro Punk!

The day after we’ll move to Reggio Emilia, to be precise in Cadelbosco di Sopra at the infamous “Donchy Pub” for another devastating event: this time the headliners will be Germany’s old school Grind/Death icons BLOOD for an exclusive Italian show all focused on the first 3 albums and seeing the return on vocals of the early growling maniac Martin “Chicken-Witchskinner“. Other bands to perform that night are once again CRIPPLE BASTARDS and YACOPSAE, opening act: BLASKHYRT.
