MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” gatefold 2xLP and S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP…pre-orders are open NOW!!!

Posted in Mad Conflux, Pre Orders, Releases, S.L.O.D. on March 28th, 2017 by foadmaster

Just in time to recover from the avalanche of brain squeezing Thrash that we delivered few weeks ago with Cryptic Slaughter and Attomica, and we’re back again with another onset of speed + sonic violence… And with immense pleasure we’re proud to introduce one more Japanese Hardcore discography (after delivering the likes of NAPALM, The GEROGERIGEGEGE, TOXIC NOISE and Q.O.P.) with the double LP version of MAD CONFLUX‘s “Crazy Action Party“, a 43 song beast of the fastest and most intense Japanese Hardcore for all you maniacs loving bands like Outo, Gauze, Systematic Death, Lipcream, S.O.B. and so on… And to keep things equally noisy and extreme we have decided to match them with an ultra-obscure cult of the pioneering proto-grind era… one of the very first Death Metal (at blasting speeds) atrocities to appear on the Yugoslavian territory back in 1986… SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH!!  So get ready for the massacre: MAD CONFLUXCrazy action party” gatefold 2xLP and S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP are up for preorders!! Both releases will be premiered at FOAD records‘ stand in Utrecht/Holland at the unmissable Mega Record Fair on April 8-9 and we’ll start to ship all orders on April 11th. As usual our advice is to act fast if you want to catch the limited mailorder versions on colored vinyl as they’re expected to sell out quickly!

Now more in detail about each release:

MAD CONFLUX “Crazy action party” 2xLP gatefold + booklet (F.O.A.D. 120)

Another crazy Japanese Hardcore release on FOAD RecordsMAD CONFLUX were one of the greatest thrashing HC units to come out from the Yokosuka/Yokohama area… just like SYSTEMATIC DEATH, RAISE CAIN, TOXIC NOISE, PILE DRIVER, BATTLE ATTACKER and many more. These psychos terrorized the masses from 1985 to 1991 delivering some of the fastest and most addictive HC with that skate-thrash vibe that made the late ’80s/early ’90s Japancore scene so unique and unmatched. Their discography is fragmented on several compilation appearances and the hard to find split flexi 7″ (1987) with JANKY.  They self-released a limited discography CD in 2005 that got instantly sold out. This double LP includes all their existing studio and live recordings (43 songs!) for the first time on vinyl, scrupulously remastered from the best sounding sources to properly incinerate your eardrums. It comes in a highly deluxe packaging with weighty gatefold sleeve and ’80s fanzine styled booklet including photos, gig flyers and biographical notes written by their guitarist Ori, also playing in PILE DRIVER and in the current line-up of the mighty DEATH SIDE!!

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on dirty white vinyl with red splattering limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies

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

S.L.O.D. “Satanic Legion Of Death – Demo 1986” LP (F.O.A.D. 123)

Hailing from ex Yugoslavia, SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH stand as one of the most obscure and extreme Death/Thrashcore hordes surfaced in the mid ’80s, worshipped by tape trades of the time as one of the fastest and sickest blasting monstrosities of the pre-grindcore era! They are considered as probably the earliest Death Metal act from Slovenia (and all ex-Yugo) and their first and only demotape was a sort of virtually non-existent cult mentioned on a handful of ‘zines and rarely quoted by the later generation of Noise/Grind pioneers (Jan Agathocles among them) among the oldest incarnations of the blastcore formula. Musically, they remind of South American slaughterers like BLASFEMIA, PARABELLUM, HOLOCAUSTO but way faster and more chaotic, with a sinister feeling of evil and gloom surrounding them.

Quoting Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag / Decibel Of Death): “Man I surely did ate this recording like crazy back in the day…. That noise was so fresh and we had already been used to the likes of ACRID, EVOKED DOOM, early POISON, ARSENIC and the likes so nothing could frighten us at that point haha! I also recall getting this recording in the mail via Shane Embury from his WARHAMMER days… The cool tape trading days. I had no choice than review it in my zine, D.O.D., from that point because it was so magnificently extreme!” Now finally this ultra-obscure gem comes back from the dead getting the proper FOAD treatment, mastered from the best sounding source in existence. One sided LP with a silk screened original art silk screened on the flipside. Incudes an insert with lyrics, drawings and liner notes.

Available in 2 versions:

Die-hard edition on red vinyl limited to 100 copies

Black vinyl, limited to 200 copies

CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “The Lowlife Chronicles 1984-1988” digipack CD/DVD and ATTOMICA “s/t” gatefold LP are out NOW!!

Posted in Attomica, Cryptic Slaughter, Releases on March 21st, 2017 by foadmaster

The moment has finally arrived! The two latest nuclear devices by F.O.A.D. Records are finally out and ready to drop on your stereo! “The lowlife chronicles 1984-1988” CD/DVD, also known as the definitive document about the life of Cryptic Slaughter, and the first legendary self titled album by Brazilian thrash legends Attomica are in the F.O.A.D. headquarters and almost all the preorders have been packed and shipped! You can also have a sneak peek at the contents of the amazing Cryptic Slaughter documentary in this trailer video, as an appetizer for the full feature!

More in detail about each release:

 

– CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER “The Lowlife Chronicles 1984-1988” Digipack CD/DVD (F.O.A.D. 118)

The definitive Cryptic Slaughter release on FOAD Records! This project has been years in the making to reach the best possible result. A nearly 2 hours DVD tracing the band’s history from 1984 till the “Stream Of Consciousness” era in 1988. Includes tons of live footage and exclusive interviews with band members and other musicians (MUNICIPAL WASTE, REPULSION, HATEBREED, FEAR FACTORY, HIRAX etc..etc…). And there’s more… a CD full of rarities (rehearsals, outtakes etc) and soundboard live material selected from 9 different shows 1985-1988, ranging from the early “Life in grave” times to the “Convicted” and “Money Talks” sets.

31 SONGS of the fastest and most influential US Hardcore / Thrash ever conceived! Housed in a 8-panel digipack including 2 booklets packed with rare photos, flyers and original artworks. As we always say: if you’re into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are M.A.D. if you miss any Cryptic Slaughter release!

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

 

– ATTOMICA “s/t” Gatefold LP (F.O.A.D. 119)

Another South American Thrash milestone on FOAD Records! 1987… among the hordes of death-thrashing maniacs raising from the blood soaked Brazilian underground, ATTOMICA from the São Paulo area sinks its teeth and claws in first with their “Children’s Assassin” Demo (1986) and then with the ultra-crude self titled debut that still now is considered by many their most classic release. This is some of rawest and most aggressive death tinged Thrash Metal you can think of. A solid collision of caustic neck-breaking riffs, fast ‘n’ tight drumming at occasion speeding up to blast beat levels and some merciless screaming vocals reminescent of early Kreator, giving to the whole thing an utter feeling of cruelty and malignancy.

Despite the many CD reissues, this classic full length hasn’t been reissued on vinyl since the original first press on Equinox (1988), so nearly 30 years! And most important, this new edition on special 160 grams vinyl is with no doubt the best sounding one you can find around, as it has been specially mastered from an uncompressed 1st generation source that unlike the ultra-“squashed” remastered CD versions gives a lot of range and dynamics to the warmness of the original production. Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve enriched with rare and unreleased photos from the band’s early times. If you’re like us an insane fanatic of Brazil’s Death/Thrash golden era (Mutilator, Holocausto, Chakal, Vulcano, Dorsal Atlantica, early Sepultura and tons more) this LP should be a mandatory addition to your collection!

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

DISTRUST “A dream of peace +” gatefold 2xLP (F.O.A.D. 116)

FOAD‘s legacy with pioneering Swedish Hardcore / Punk bands goes on! After unearthing the early recordings of the speed Hardcore maniacs ASOCIAL, it’s time for another classic act of the same “family”… DISTRUST! Brief history: Distrust came together in the summer of 1983 when the 2 brothers Kenneth & Tommy (from B.T.D.) joined Håkan & Peter L (before in Why War?). Håkan had just started singing in Asocial (later on drums) and Tompa (Asocial) lived next door to Kenneth and Tommy so it was natural those two bands did a lot of things together. After that Distrust dissolved in the end of -84 or early -85 Kenneth joining Asocial on bass (later on guitar).

This double LP discography includes all their existing recordings compiled by Håkan straight from the master tapes for the best sounding result! “A dream of peace” Demo 1983, “Vi Rustar Dom Dör” Demo 1984, the split live tape with Asocial, all tracks from “No War No More 1 & 2“, “Really Fast Vol.II” plus extra rehearsal and live tracks, for a total of 61 songs of uncompromised Swedish Punk / Hardcore mangel!! They sound as raw and furious as ASOCIAL with an even punker approach. If you’re into raw straightforward Scandinavian HC / Punk and enjoy bands like Mob 47, Crude SS, Missbrukarna, Svart Parad, Headcleaners, you just can’t miss this! Housed in a thick gatefold sleeve including a 11″ x 11″ packed with liner notes, photos, flyers and original artworks!

QUEST OBJECT PROJECT “It’s danger” LP (F.O.A.D. 117)

Q.O.P. (Quest Object Project) was one of the first Japanese bands to combine Metal and Punk in a very peculiar way that would later evolve into a solid trademark for several bands from the Tokyo area. They were formed in 1983 by Dr. Euro, also drummer in the legendary HC/Punk unit THE EXECUTE, from which a couple members created GASTUNK. Musically, this release features an aggressive form of Speed Metal with NWOBHM influences and an intense Punk overtone. The production is simple and bloody raw adding a Punk-tinged feel to the whole thing. To make it simple, you can hear influences of Motörhead, Tank and Warfare on their Metal side, and so far as it concerns the Punk approach, GBH and Discharge are the first comparisons coming to mind. Euro’s drumming is tight and solid as always, also performed well is Kasuya’s bass, but the standout member is easily Satoshi, on both lead vocals and guitar. He possesses a solid range, opting to sing clean vocals in a higher octave primarily, though he handles singing in a lower range just as well. Satoshi’s guitar work is also very good, boasting heaps of catchy and creative riffs at every turn, as well as flashy aggressive solos on nearly every song. Q.O.P.‘s discography consists of 2 demos: a self titled tape (1985) and “It’s danger!” that was the re-edition of the first one adding two more songs from a different studio session.

Obviously, this LP includes all their existing recordings (the 10 songs of “It’s danger“) freshly ripped from the original reels by Euro himself and specially mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement. This is hands down the best sounding version of this Metal/Punk gem that will both entertain those into Japanese classics like G.I.S.M., R.U.G., Rommel etc… and those who are simply looking for a solid piece of primordial SpeedMetal / Punk aggression. Includes an 80s-styled booklet with ultra-rare flyers, ads and photos and an OBI strip with liner notes!

Black vinyl limited to 300
