Posted in Morbid, Releases, Unknown Death on May 20th, 2017 by foadmaster

Happy birthday Metalion!! May 20th: as promised we are ready to announce that 2 new FOAD releases are out in perfect time to celebrate the 50 year birthday of the infernal norwegian maniac that over 3 decades ago gave birth to one of the most important mags in the underground Metal history! The double vinyl assault coming out to pay homage to this anniversary consists of nothing else than the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver.. and the rare demotape of the pre-TERRORIZER horde UNKNOWN DEATH, a ferocious raw avalanche of primitive Los Angeles Death Metal. The two limited versions of MÖRBIT got sold out in less than 1 day, the black vinyl version is going very fast too, and there aren’t many copies left of the UNKNOWN DEATH limited colored vinyl version.. so you know what to do! We are starting to ship all preorders from Monday, please be patient because they are even more than what was expected so it’ll take us some time to pack and ship them all.

More in detail about each release..:

– MÖRBIT (Morbid)  “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP (F.O.A.D. 124)

In 2011 the Swedish Black Metal cult MORBID released the gigantic sampler “YEAR OF THE GOAT“. To celebrate that a very special band was put together in order to perform some MORBID classics live for a selected audience. The band went under the name MÖRBIT and consisted of legendary musicians of the Swedish Extreme Metal scene. Erik of WATAIN on vocals, Tyrant of NIFELHEIM on bass, David of DISMEMBER on guitar, Erik of MERCILESS on guitar and Stjärnvind on drums (ENTOMBED, MERCILESS etc.). The night before the actual concert the band had a final rehearsal at the WATAIN’s “wolf lair” which also was the funeral for Metalion’s SLAYER MAGAZINE. Now a few years later METALION turns 50 and in order to celebrate this unholy event it was decided between all members and of course MORBID & METALION to release a really rare recording of the final rehearsal before the gig the day after. With the help of Erik WATAIN and FOAD Records this was made possible! Get ready to freeze to death in the Swedish Black Metal inferno with these raw and morbidly evil classics:

1) My dark subconscious
2) Disgusting Semla
3) Wings of funeral
4) From the dark

BLACK VINYL  LIMITED TO 320 COPIES

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

– UNKNOWN DEATH  “Demo 1987” LP  (F.O.A.D. 122)

UNKNOWN DEATH, one of the first bands previously had by legendary grindcore masters Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado, before Peter Sandoval joined forces. Before Pete there was a local drummer, Fish Perez who’d been a friend in the L.A. scene for several years. With heavy influences in the likes of Death, Bathory, Venom, early Napalm Death, etc., Unknown Death began making noise in the mid 80’s in any downtown warehouse that would house them. During this period they recorded their debut 12 song demo tape, self-titled UNKNOWN DEATH which was well received locally. Unknown Death seldom played at this point, rehearsals began to dwindle, and members became laxed. A short time later during a missed rehearsal by Fish, Pete was brought to Unknown Death’s rehearsal by a mutual friend and was asked to jump in on drums. Immediately after, Oscar & Jesse knew they had found a drummer to equal their raw talent and energy. Shortly thereafter, Unknown Death would split due to differences and TERRORIZER would be born to become one of the most influential bands in grindcore history ….  Before TERRORIZER, before NAUSEA, before MAJESTY, experience the ultra raw Death Metal aggression of LA’s UNKNOWN DEATH!! Freshly ripped from the best sounding tape provided by band members, restored and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio.

Available in 2 different versions:

DIE-HARD EDITION ON BEER CLEAR VINYL LIMITED TO 100 COPIES

BLACK VINYL LIMITED TO 200 COPIES!

MÖRBIT (Morbid) “METALION: 50 years of fucking off life” LP and UNKNOWN DEATH “Demo 1987” LP preorders start NOW!!

Posted in Morbid, Pre Orders, Releases, Unknown Death on May 10th, 2017 by foadmaster

After the deafening Grind assault delivered few weeks ago with Looking For An Answer’s new album “Dios Carne” it’s time to return to darkness and evil with two vinyl offerings that lean more towards the death-tinged Metal side of F.O.A.D. Records

The first of them is not just another F.O.A.D. release, it’s the celebration of the 50th birthday of a friend, a great source of inspiration for thousands of maniacs and a diehard underground pioneer of the Scandinavian Metal scene: no one else by Jon “Metalion” of the legendary SLAYER mag! To make this anniversary special, we decided to release on LP the ultra rare rehearsal of MÖRBIT – the real MORBID tribute, a special band featuring members of WATAIN, NIFELHEIM, DISMEMBER, MERCILESS and ENTOMBED playing MORBID classics in a totally cursed and ominous mood, with a touch that only such titans of the Swedish Black/Death Metal scene can deliver. Scroll down for a detailed description and tracklist of this unmissable necrodead-ly madness. Three different versions available: a “Metalion bday” ultra-limited version on clear red vinyl with extra poster strictly limited to 50 copies (the most already reserved by friends and band members, only a handful on sale via scareystore.com and a few in Japan exclusively available at Record Boy Store!!), a splatter vinyl version limited to 100 and a regular black one limited to 320.

The second sonic crime of the month consolidates the inexhaustible bond between FOAD and the absolute masters of LA based Grindcore, the Terrorizer / Nausea / Majesty family! 2 years ago, during a short stay in LA, we visited our friend Carlos “Cosmo” Reveles, bass player in Majesty, Nausea and Terrorizer LA and found this obscure and virtually non-existent tape of UNKNOWN DEATH, the band that Oscar Garcia and Jesse Pintado had shortly before starting the legend that we all know. We brought the tape to Italy and after restoring and mastering it at Toxic Basement we discussed about a very limited vinyl release… so here it is, a super-rarity that only a handful of lucky tape traders has heard since now finally available on vinyl in the best possible sound quality. UNKNOWN DEATHDemo 1987” LP, 12 tracks of crude raw Death Metal clearly inspired by “Scream bloody gore” era DEATH (they even have a song called “Beyond my infernal grave“.. reminds you of something?). This is limited to 300 copies, 200 on black and 100 on clear beer-yellow vinyl.
