POISON “Höelle und Vernichtung – Complete discography 1984/1987” Boxset OUT NOW on FOAD Records!

Posted in Poison on June 20th, 2017 by foadmaster

At last! One of the most anticipated releases in F.O.A.D.‘s history is ready and it finally invaded our warehouse!!! Poison “Höelle und Vernichtung – Complete discography 1984/1987” boxset is here and it’s ready to go… there are only 30 copies left of the diehard edition on splatter vinyl with extra backpatch and A1 poster so blast at the speed of light! Please, be patient because this mammoth is HUGE (each copy weighs 2,4 Kg) and will take a while to send out all preorders, of course we’ll do our best to send them all out within a week or two… And this is just the beginning! This scorching hot summer will see a streak of releases by F.O.A.D. Records, so keep your eyes open, the next batch of preorders will be announced in few days and then another will follow!

All the existing POISON recordings from 1984 to 1987 + an extensive choice of unreleased material, over 5 hours of pure infernal armageddon from one of the most ancient pioneering Black/Death Metal hellhounds of the mittel-European scene of the 80s. To make things fair for those who had already got our previous POISON vinyl releases, this boxset is somehow completing the series because “Sons of evil“, “Bestial Death” and “Awakening of the dead” on it are featured on CD only, while all the rest (that has mostly never been released before) is included on LP. Quoting the band’s master-mind of evil Uli “Angel Of Death” Hildenbrand: “When F.O.A.D. contacted me the first time to discuss the possibility of a complete re-release of all those ancient tapes, I basically thought they were nuts – and told them so – however; through sheer tenacity they managed to convince me that it was about time for a really professional overworking of the material – hence the re-release of the first 3 demos and now THIS: basically everything you always wanted to know about POISON but were afraid to ask for! Seriously; this box has it all – the best sounding-material available, all lovingly remastered and re-designed (with a little help from yours truly); all of it taken from the original masters, some of it never released before! Even I myself was amazed by the results – which is something that happens very rarely – so, if you are a fan and you want to experience the story of the band from beginning to end, here is your perfect time machine! So if you’re ready for some 5-6 hours of poisonous pleasures – IMMERSE YOURSELF!

This monster comes in an embossed deluxe box and includes 5 x LPs, 2 x digipack CDs and a 60 page hard cover book collecting all their existing photos, flyers, artworks, ‘zine excerpts and more! Every recording has been ripped from the master-tapes provided by the band and maniacally restored and remastered. More in detail about the contents:

LP1 : “Into the abyss” (remastered by Uli Hildenbrand)

LP 2+3 (gatefold) : Full 1986 Live set in rehearsal (previously unreleased)

LP 4 : The First Gig 1985: “Live Terror” (extended version featuring the complete show, as the ’80s cassette edition wasn’t complete)

POISON “Sons Of Evil” LP (2nd pressing) and v.a. “DIS-CASSETTES” ltd. boxset (Asocial, Svart Parad, Distrust…) OUT NOW on FOAD Records!!

Posted in Poison, Releases on February 27th, 2017 by foadmaster

2 new FOAD releases are out today!  POISONSons Of Evil” LP (2nd pressing on red vinyl and ultra-clear vinyl) and the DIS-CASSETTES Ltd. boxset that is almost sold out already (less than 5 left!!).  We are shipping all preorders now, the last round will be mailed this Wednesday.  If you still want to catch the Dis-Cassettes boxset you have to be extremely fast, it’s expected to be sold out in few days.  Also, for those who are going to Netherlands Death Fest this weekend.. we will be there with our stall in full size, with almost all the stuff available at scareystore.com that means thousands of vinyl, CDs, tshirts and all the currently available FOAD releases.  It’s a great chance to save on postage, so come to visit us there and if you want to reserve some records, write us now at foadrecords@gmail.com
Back to our 2 new releases, here’s a detailed description of them:

POISON “Sons Of Evil” LP (F.O.A.D. 082)

2nd pressing on blood red and ultra-clear vinyl!

Pure infernal armageddon, not for the weak!! One of the most deviated, disgusting and anti-musical Death Metal aberrations ever conceived. 2nd pressing on FOAD Records, this LP is made exactly as the cassette version that was circulating in the 80s! Originally released in 1984, “Sons of evil” is the first demo recording from the malevolent and sinister German entity known as POISON. This sounds so raw and extreme that even the band members took their time to decide whether to license a vinyl reissue or not, and the graal got unlocked only when after years of research through the most insane puritan collectors, we tracked a source whose quality was even “better” than the masters owned by the band and got it properly restored and mastered by our wizard H.O.D. at Toxic Basement studio. So one thing is sure: this LP is the matchless, best sounding version of “Sons of evil” you can dream about.  Now quoting what has been already said about this gem: as primitive and barbaric as a Stone Age gang-rape, this tape is possessed by total darkness and evil. Musically, this runs the gamut from morbidly mid-paced to intense and somewhat insane. It bears no real similarities to any of their German counterparts, such as Sodom, Destruction or Kreator. The slower parts sound very reminiscent of Hellhammer. The vocals of Virgin Slaughter are possessed and maniacal, at times, his demonic voice actually accentuates the dark mood of the music, rather than detracting from it. As for the rest of the songwriting, this is like a war on the senses. Primitive and violent in nature, the riffs saw through you while the drums pound your skull into oblivion. It is almost difficult to believe something so bestial and grotesque existed back in 1984. The sound is on the same level as the “Death By Metal” demo, from Mantas, and makes the old Venom and Bathory records seem like they were done in high-dollar facilities. “Sons of Evil” is a monstrous offering from a band that had truly tapped into something dark and aggressive.  Includes a booklet printed on old school fanzine styled light blue paper, with rare photos, flyers and excerpts from zines/mags of that era!

TRACKLIST:

side A:
1) The omen 2) Inferno breaks out 3) Black death 4) Demon 5) Reaper 6) Possessed 7) Angel of Satan / March to hades
side B:
1) Satan’s damnation 2) Legions of hell 3) Leather and metal 4) Hell of the living dead 5) Slaughter 6) Gonna make you die

It comes in a white cardboard boxset with 5 stickers on.

Dis-cassettes” was the DIY label run by Håkan of Asocial and Distrust.

The sound has been remastered from 1st generation sources and the new tapes have been professionally dubbed under constant tests to make sure to get the best possible audio quality.

POISON “Bestial death” LP and “Awakening of the dead” LP are both OUT NOW on F.O.A.D. Records!

Posted in Poison, Releases on January 27th, 2016 by foadmaster

Another beast of rawness and cruelty has been unleashed on FOAD Records!! As previously announced, this is the month of Germany’s POISON and their two cult Demos “Bestial Death” and “Awakening Of The Dead” finally being released on vinyl in their entirety on two separated single LPs each one including a stunning 16 page booklet filled with rare photos, flyers and ‘zine excerpts.

They have boot just been delivered at our warehouse so it’s official: POISONBestial death” LP and “Awakening of the dead” LP are both OUT NOW on F.O.A.D. Records! We are starting to ship all preorders, the ultra-ltd die-hard edition of 50 copies got sold out in less than 1 hour but we still have a handful of the one on splatter vinyl ltd to 100 so act fast!

More in detail about each LP:

POISON “Bestial death” LP (F.O.A.D. 095)

Raw, extreme and BESTIAL blackened Death Metal at its most savage form. Recorded in fall 1985 and following their classic debut Demotape “Sons of evil“, this second chapter offers another journey into the realms of sonic perversion and mental obscurity. Ripped from the best sounding source that we found after selecting several copies from our team of collectors always ready to support, this LP offers another chapter in POISON‘s uncompromised evil, keeping the original sound the most faithful and pristine as possible with that claustrophobic feeling of cavernous horror that no other band has been able to recreate at so crude dimensions.

Alternating moments of ultra-fast (for the time) proto blasting mayhem with slowed down breaks of suffocating Doom, “Bestial death” recalls the sickest elements of Hellhammer’s demos and of course the school of Venom, or to keep it closer to Teutonic savagery, Sodom on their “Witching Metal” demotape.

Deluxe sleeve with restored original artworks and a thick 16 page booklet ’80s fanzine styled including old interviews, reviews, flyers and rare photos. For the very first time on vinyl and of course licensed and approved by the band.

Available in 2 different versions:

Limited edition (only 100 copies) on grey and bone-white splatter vinyl + booklet

Black Vinyl

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

POISON “Awakening of the dead” LP (F.O.A.D. 096)

3rd installement in FOAD‘s deadly mission of bringing back to light POISON‘s official Demotapes in the most complete and pristine shape. After their terrifying first two abominations (“Sons of evil” – 1985 and “Bestial death” -1985) and a live tape, 1986 sees these pioneering German maniacs deliver another nightmarish assault of dark, creepy Death Metal. It’s the turn of “Awakening of the dead” that even showing some kind of progress in their brutal primitivity and a 4-track production (wooah!), still delivers the insane rawness and hallucinating morbidity they were feared for.

On a promo sheet of the time they were describing it as follows: “POISON play a very extreme mixture of ultra-fast + ripping Death Metal and more classical, Black Sabbath-inspired Doom stuff, without trying to follow and special trend or ripping off any famous band“.

It’s all there, think of a death chamber unleashing the most stabbing screams of terror in a cthulhu-ish pace alternating blasts of uncontrolled fury with Hellhammer tinged breakdowns. Once again mastered at Toxic Basement Studio from the best sounding source in existence still keeping the impact and genuinity of the original sound as it was on tape. Deluxe sleeve with restored original artworks and a thick 16 page booklet ’80s fanzine styled including old interviews, reviews, flyers and rare photos. For the very first time on vinyl and of course licensed and approved by the band.

Available in 2 different versions:

Limited edition (only 100 copies) on brown and bone-white splatter vinyl + booklet

Black Vinyl

POISON “Bestial death” LP and “Awakening of the dead” LP… pre-orders are open NOW!!

Posted in Poison, Pre Orders, Releases on January 12th, 2016 by foadmaster

Are you ready for a double-strike of the rawest, dirtiest and most infernal Teutonic Death Metal of the ’80s? After bringing back to light their debut aberration known as “Sons of evil” (1985) we just couldn’t stop it there. When it comes to old tape trading mania and our passion for unearthing on vinyl the sickest and most obscure Demos that paved way to a lot of bands that followed, Germany’s POISON represent one of the most genuine and innovative forms of sonic violence one can think of… raw, evil and uncompromised. Totally spontaneous in their extremity and fury.

So it was about time to give the same treatment on LP to the subsequent 2 demos… Here we go, pre-orders for POISONBestial death” LP and “Awakening of the dead” LP start now!! As a good memory of our previous chapter (“Sons of evil” LP – totally sold out), check this amazing review on shit-fi.com …As for the previous LP, you will call us bastards for the ultra-ltd die hard editions of only 50 copies with alternate hand-numbered cover and different splatter vinyl configuration, because they will sell out in minutes. Act equally fast for the other limited splatter versions, as the other time they were gone real fast. Ok, so more in detail about these two monstruous offerings:
