Posted in Atrox, D.P.C.D., Raw Power, Releases on April 24th, 2019 by foadmaster

It’s always a huge pleasure to see new F.O.A.D. releases arrive at our warehouse and also for this April 2019 the mission is accomplished! Three absolute Hardcore Punk ragers are ready to contaminate your record shelves! ATROXHardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD and D.P.C.D.Confidencial + demo” LP are out now on F.O.A.D. Records!! But that’s not all… we said 3!! Yes, because RAW POWERReptile house -XX Anniversary” picture LP+CD was sold out so quickly that we had to repress it immediately, so for those who didn’t get it yet, don’t miss the chance, this classic Italian Hardcore asskicker is available again, including both the original devastating session of two decades ago and a brand new re-recording of those tracks delivered with the same intensity and energy!!

More in detail about each release:

ATROX “Hardcore against repression 1985-1988” LP+CD (F.O.A.D. 154)

ATROX started in Milano, Italy in the early ’80s and were part of the legendary “furious years“, the first wave of bands delivering that fast and raging style that became a distinctive trademark for Italian Hardcore / Punk and that saw bands like Wretched, Indigesti, Peggio Punx, Impact, Negazione, Declino, Raw Power, CCM, Bloody Riot as the main exponents of that era. ATROX were playing a full on speed yet catchy Hardcore… listening to their early sounds you can discern influences from US bands like Dead Kennedys, M.D.C., early D.R.I. however with a very strong Italian Punk imprint, not far from what bands like Crash Box and Peggio Punx were doing at the same time. This collection includes all their existing recordings spanning from 1985 to 1989, prior to their debut full length “Fiori neri“. This means all their hard to find cassettes: “Senza tregua” (1985), “Orme perdute” (1986), “Aldo moro lived HC” (1988), the ultra-rare “Live at Concobeach” tape 1986 ltd. to less than 30 copies (!) and some totally unreleased rehearsals.

46 songs drawing a complete overview of their roots. LP including their two studio demos and bonus CD compiling both live tapes and the unreleased rehearsals. All mastered from 1/4″ reels and 1st generation tapes provided by the band. Comes with a fanzine styled A4 booklet all the original artworks and inserts from the tapes included, photos, lyrics and more. Highly recommended for those into the best days of Italian Hardcore and ’80s HC maniacs in general. Click HERE for a little preview!

Available in 2 different versions:

Swirl pus-yellow vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 200 copies

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

D.P.C.D. “Confidencial + Demo” LP (F.O.A.D. 166)

D.P.C.D. stands for DECESO POR CAUSA DESCONOCIDA. This incredible band hails from Chile, a country whose Hardcore / Punk scene isn’t much under the international spotlights but is currently very active and vital and hides a lot of interesting revelations and DIY labels like Tobi Records releasing gems to be discovered.  D.P.C.D. play a perfect blend of South American Punk / Hardcore and dark-soaked DeathRock.

The energy and distortion of the most genuine 80’s inspired Hardcore channeled through sinister Dark Punk atmospheres, we dare to say  like a Chilean answer to NERORGASMO!  This LP includes a brand new session called “Confidencial” and a remastered version of their amazing Demo 2016 that made the F.O.A.D. Records team fall in love with their sound and offer them this debut on LP. An absolute must if you like LatinoAmerican Punk of all eras played with intensity, sincerity and full-throttle anger! Come with lyrics/photos insert. Click HERE for a little preview!

Available in 2 different versions:

Purple vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl limited to 200 copies

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

RAW POWER “Reptile House – XX Anniversary” picture LP + CD (F.O.A.D. 161)

Originally released on CD and tape back in 1998, “Reptile house” stands as one of RAW POWER‘s best efforts of their ’90s discography. It has all the features that made this band so great and respected: blistering HC drumming, memorable riffing with a Crossover vibe and vitriolic vocals. Here you finally get it for the first time on vinyl and completely remastered, in a special Picture Disc version limited to 400, housed in an elegant die cut sleeve. And to celebrate this album’s 20th anniversary, the original line-up that made it back then reunited to re-record their favorite songs from it.

Posted in Pre Orders, Raw Power, Releases, Svart Parad on February 11th, 2019 by foadmaster

Another crossfire bombing from the F.O.A.D. headquarters is ready to shatter your turntable! If the last month’s assault was more focused on Death/Grind extremities, for February we’re back to an all out Hardcore strike with two classic bands hailing from Sweden and Italy. Both have a long story of collaboration and friendship with us, in the first case due to the Asocial connection (as the band that we’re about to introduce had members in common with them) and in the 2nd case, well…it’s RAW POWER, and all their ’80s discography has been scrupulously reissued on F.O.A.D. with a lot of rare and unreleased extras.  Our first announcement for this month is the ultimate complete discography by SVART PARAD on a deluxe double LP + CD + booklet. This release finally makes justice to one of the most important Swedish HC bands of the ’80s and wipes away all the previous editions, above all those cheap ‘n’ crappy ones on a2o records, incomplete and made with no passion for quality and details. Here you’ll find all the band’s demos re-ripped and mastered from the 1st generation tapes, adding a lot of rare and unreleased tracks.

And then it’s the turn of RAW POWER… have you ever wondered why “Reptile house“, probably their best album of the 90s, has never been released on vinyl?!? It was about time to make this happen, and there was no better opportunity than doing it on the twentieth anniversary since its original release date. This special “XX” version has both the 1998 session reissued on a limited picture LP and a bonus CD with both the original recordings and a brand new unreleased session with those killer tracks re-recorded two decades later. So, SVART PARADTotal Svart Parad” Gatefold 2xLP + CD and RAW POWERReptile house – XX Anniversary” Picture LP + CD are available on preorder. The official release date is scheduled for February 22, 2019. As usual, act fast if you want to catch the ltd. splatter vinyl version of “Total Svart Parad“, it won’t last for long…

We’re proud of the legacy with these two legendary Hardcore bands, respectively from Italy and England, with whom we have collaborated with several releases so far and we’ll keep on unearthing rarities and unreleased music from their archives!

More in detail about these 2 monuments of fury:

RAW POWER “Wop hour – Extended version” LP + booklet (F.O.A.D. 145)

Italy’s undisputed godfathers of furious Hardcore since 1981 team up again with F.O.A.D. Records to unearth another classic from their 80s discography enriched with a hailstorm of bonus gems! This LP includes their insane “Wop Hour” EP (1985) an adrenalinic assault of rapid thrashing HC delivered with ballistic tightness… plus an incredible selection of bonus tracks, part of which were never heard before. You’ll find all the bonus songs that were already included in the extended CD version and two unreleased soundboard live rippers: Fiorenzuola 1984 and Amsterdam 1986.

The first – still with Giuseppe on vocals – sees these maniacs smashing the stage with a devastating set including a totally unreleased song (“Police Harassment“), some rare ones from their first demo ’83 and covers of BLACK FLAG and DISCHARGE (!!), the second – taking the whole B-side of the LP – is just RAW POWER at the top of their game, “Screams from the gutter” setlist and that invincible line-up with Helder on drums with all the hits that you want to hear with a powerful and aggressive sound. 26 SONGS IN TOTAL. Comes with a 8 page booklet with rare photos, flyers and zine excerpts from the mid 80s. Get ready to blast this at top volume and scream “Fuck authority”!!

BROKEN BONES “Demo 1988” LP + insert (F.O.A.D. 144)

The rare B.B. demo 1988 until now available only as digital files, for the very first time on vinyl! LINE-UP: Bones – guitar, Tezz – vocals, Bazz – drums, Darren – bass. 6 songs, total Hardcore attack with a metallic touch. BROKEN BONES were one of the first bands to start crossing over the worlds of metal, hardcore, and punk, as their extremely aggressive sound required something that wasn’t done being a lot at the time. This recording has it all, thrashing guitar aggression and a speeded up d-beat drumming topped by absolutely caustic vocals! Remastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio. Includes an insert with unreleased photos.
